Happy Tuesday everyone and welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday project! I hope your week is going well. If this is your first time visiting my little blog, welcome! And please be sure to join my email list to keep up on all the scrappy news around here. Have you had a chance to visit 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 the sample and the sketch for the week:
Isn’t that a cute card? As you can see, I followed the sketch almost exactly.
Since the new September-December Mini Catalog goes live tomorrow and fall is just around the corner, I thought it was the perfect time to play with the new Autumn Leaves stamp set. It’s a photopolymer stamp set that is a Distinktive style stamp set. That means the images have different depths of coverage when inked and stamped. So for my card, I started with an Early Espresso card base and added a strip of the new All About Autumn Specialty DSP with Stampin’ Seal Adhesive.. Next I die cut my Nested Essentials label in Very Vanilla and stamped my leaves. I inked them in Crushed Curry and added Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive with daubers. I really like the effect it gives with multiple colors. Once I stamped the two leaves, I added the branch images in Old Olive and attached the die cut to the card front with Seal. I had a scrap of Very Vanilla that I stamped the sentiment on in Early Espresso ink and then attached it to a scrap of Old Olive cardstock that was trimmed to the measurements. I attached the two strips to the card front with dimensionals. I had a Linen Thread bow in my scrap bin, so I attached it to the sentiment strips with a Mini Glue Dot. For my bling, I added some of the new Adhesive-Backed Speckled Dots.
For the inside, I trimmed a scrap of Very Vanilla to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and repeated the leaf on the inside, stamping off first. I then stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso ink and attached it to the inside with Seal.
And don’t forget to decorate your envelope! I stamped the same leaf on the front of the envelope. I just love that image!
Isn’t that stamp set gorgeous? It’s definitely one of my favorites! Wait till you see the rest of the papers in that pack! They are stunning! I wanted my stamped images to stand out, which is why I used the wood grain sheet.
Now it’s your turn. Create your take on this week’s sample or sketch and share it with us over at the CT Facebook Group. You can create it just like the sample or change it up a little or a lot. That’s the fun part of casing – it’s all up to you! You get to create it with your style.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope I was able to inspire you. If there’s anything I used today that you would like to add to your collection, just head over to my online store to shop. Have a great rest of your week and I hope you have time to get inky and play along!
