Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday! I hope your week is going well! If this is your first time visiting my neck of the woods, 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:
As you can see, I changed mine up just a little….
When I saw these decorative masks, I knew I wanted to play with them and create different colored sunflowers. When I created my card, we didn’t have the sketch created yet, so I just guess-timated my measurements. I started with a Blackberry Bliss card base that measures 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. I trimmed a piece of the Bright & Beautiful DSP that I trimmed to 3 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ and attached it to the card base with Stampin’ Seal Adhesive. Next I trimmed a scrap of Basic White to 3″ x 4 1/4″ and colored blended on my sunflowers with Bubble Bath and Early Espresso inks. I added that to the DSP with more Seal. Next I trimmed a scrap of Bubble Bath cardstock to 1 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ and stamped the sentiment from the new So Sincere stamp set in Early Espresso ink. I attached it to the card front with dimensionals and added some of the Adhesive-Backed Sparkle Gems for my bling.
For the inside I wanted to bring the look of the outside in, so trimmed a scrap of Basic White to 3 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ and a piece of the same DSP to 1 1/4″ x 4 1/4″. I attached the DSP to the layer and stamped the sentiment also from the So Sincere stamp set in Early Espresso ink. I thought the vertical sentiment really worked well for the inside.
Don’t forget to decorate your envelope! And here’s a tip….when using your Blending Brushes, make sure you check the color on your brush before blending! I like to rinse my brushes in-between uses, and had already cleaned the one I used for the Bubble Bath ink. So I grabbed another out of my cup that had been used for pink…I know, I should have tested it first, but there was still some Melon Mambo ink on it, which made the flower a brighter pink. Oh well; it’s handmade, right?
Now it’s your turn. Create your take on this week’s sample. You can create it exactly 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! Once you’ve created your take, share it with us over at the Facebook Group. We would love to have you play along!
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope I was able to inspire you to get inky this week! Have a great rest of your week!
