Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday! I hope your week is going well. If this is your first time here, welcome and please be sure to join my email list. Have you had a chance to visit the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group yet this morning to see what we are casing (copy and share everything)? If not, here’s a look at this week’s sample and sketch:

I love that we have sketches! It really helps in designing, especially when you don’t have a certain die, like the one in the picture! The sketch gave me all the information I needed on the size of the circles, which still gave me fits! lol For some reason I really struggled with this week’s sample. I decided to use my Layering Circle Dies and still had trouble with placing all the circles – even changing up the layout from a landscape to a portrait style card didn’t help! lol

I am not happy with the results, but sometimes you just have to push through! lol I started with some scraps of the Dainty Flowers DSP leftover from class prep and then chose a card base in Starry Sky cardstock. I added my DSP base and then cut out my circles. In my mind using the Beautifully Happy stamp set and the Dainty Flowers DSP worked pretty well…..So I die cut my large circle and stamped the flowers image with Memento Ink and the then stamped the leaves in Pear Pizzazz ink, stamping off and the flower petals in Starry Sky ink, stamping off again. The flower center is stamped in Daffodil Delight, and also stamping off. I thought that part turned out really well. I trimmed a scrap of Pear Pizzazz cardstock to the measurements and since the sentiments in the Beautifully Happy set didn’t fit, I pulled out my Happy Labels stamp set. The sentiment is stamped in Starry Sky ink. I then assembled the card front with Stampin’ Seal and dimensionals. Oh and a just a tip on the center of the flower petals image – when placing the stamp on the block, when removing it from the backing in the set, grab it at the base of the large flower and then place it on the block. Since it’s photopolymer it will stretch a little if you grab it on the thin flower side and then you will never be able to stamp the image exactly as the lines in the full image. Trust me on that.  😉

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment in Starry Sky ink and placed a 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ piece of the DSP on it.

And don’t forget to decorate your envelope! I added some of the DSP to envelope flap.

Now it’s your turn. Create your take on this week’s sample and share it with us over at the Facebook Group. You can create it exactly like the sample or change it up – whatever works for you! We look forward to seeing what you create with it!

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great Tuesday!
