Happy Tuesday and welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday! I hope your week is going well. If this is your first time stopping by my little neck of the woods, welcome and be sure to join my email list here to keep up on all the scrappy news around here. Have you had a chance to stop by the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group 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:
Isn’t that a cute card? Since it’s Sale-a-bration, I decided to use a piece of that fun Sale-a-bration DSP, Dandy Designs along with the Adorable Owls stamp set.
I have to say that this pack of DSP is one of my favorites! It has 48 sheets, 4 each of double sided papers. And the colors are just happy colors! Like the sheet I used for today’s card. It has Mango Melody, Calypso Coral and Petal Pink colors in it. I followed the sketch for my card, except I used one of the Scalloped Contour Dies for my layer. To trim the paper to get the correct measurements, I started with a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of the DSP and then measured each side to the measurements starting from the bottom and made little tick marks with a pencil. Then I lined up both tick marks in the track of my Stampin’ Trimmer and cut it. I added adhesive to the back and added a piece of the Pale Papaya ribbon and attaching it into the adhesive before I attached it to the card front. Next I die cut my layer and stamped the birthday owl in Memento Ink. I colored it with my Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Brush. So relaxing! Once I finished coloring, I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso ink. I attached it to the card front with dimensionals and added the 3 In Color Opals for my bling. I just love those opals as they go with EVERYTHING! Next I added a bow in the ribbon with a Mini Glue Dot.
For the inside, I stamped another sentiment from the set, also in Early Espresso ink and added a 1/2″ strip of the DSP for decoration.
And don’t forget to decorate your envelope – no naked envelopes!!
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 just like the sample or change it up a little or a lot; it’s all up to you! That’s the fun part of casing – you get to do it your way.
Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you I was able to inspire you. If you are looking for a demonstrator, I would love to help you out. Have a great rest of your week!
