Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday! Can you believe it’s the last CASE-ing Tuesday of January?!? Wow, that was a fast month!! I hope your week is off to a good start. If this is your first time visiting my little blog, welcome and be sure to join my email list to keep up on all the scrappy news around here. So have you had a chance to stop by 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 the sample and the sketch:
Isn’t that a beautiful card? I love that it’s a square card. I don’t make many square cards very often, so I had fun with this one! Here’s a look at mine:
I had fun with this one, especially since I got to play with the Perennial Lavender Suite. I followed the sketch to a point, except my measurements a little larger. Here’s the measurements for my card:
- Card base in Crumb Cake cardstock – 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″
- Perennial Lavendar DSP – 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ and 4/8″ x 3 3/4″
- Vellum cardstock – 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″
- Basic White cardstock – 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″
I started with my card base and added my DSP and Vellum layers with Stampin’ Seal Adhesive. I know that you have to be careful with vellum and adhesive, but Stampin’ Seal is the best for vellum! You can’t see it through the vellum!! Next I die cut my leaves in Shaded Spruce and Basic White cardstocks and the Highland Heather Glimmer Specialty Paper from the Three Color Pack. I then pulled out the add on dies that coordinate with the January Paper Pumpkin and die cut the sentiment in the glimmer paper and the label in Basic White. I stamped the butterflies in Gorgeous Grape ink and die cut them with the coordinating dies in the Painted Lavendar dies. Next I attached my leaves with Mini Glue Dots and then attached them to the back of the label. I added this to the card front with dimensionals. I added the sentiment to the label with Multipupose Glue. Then I added the butterflies with Mini Glue Dots and sprinkled on some of the Purple Shimmer Gems.
For the inside, I added the strip of DSP at the bottom of the white layer and then stamped my sentiment from the Perennial Postage stamp set just above the DSP. I then attached it to the inside with Seal.
This card fits in on of our standard Medium Envelopes. To decorate it, I stamped the flowers from the Painted Lavendar stamp set in Gorgeous Grape ink and then the butterflies, stamping off first to give the butterflies a lighter color.
This such a pretty card to send to your favorite purple-loving friend! Now it’s your turn. Create your take on this week’s cards and share it with us over at the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group. You can create it just like the sample or sketch 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 create your way!
Thank you so much for stopping by this morning. If you want even more inspiration on all this purple goodness, be sure to come back this afternoon for my Facebook Live. I will be sharing my alternate cards using the January Paper Pumpkin kit and some more of this gorgeous suite. Stampin’ Up! has really been upping the game with the Paper Pumpkin kits! They not only coordinate with more of the catalog products, but starting with this kit, they now have coordinating die sets that coordinate with kits for a full quarter. So, the die set I used this morning will also coordinate with the February and March kits too!! You must be Paper Pumpkin subscriber to be able to order the dies, so now is the perfect time to subscribe. Did you know that when you purchase a 3, 6 or 12-month pre-paid subscription you will also qualify for Sale-a-bration products for FREE? How cool is that? Now is the time to give Paper Pumpkin a try. Still not convinced? Come back later to see what I created with this month’s kit.
I hope you have a great Tuesday!
