Can you CASE it Friday - Just Add Color

Back with another instalment of my "Can you CASE it" series.  This time I've CASE'D (Copy and Share Everything) a card from page 166 of the Annual Stampin' Up! Catalogue.



Do you love to colour?  I do.  There's something very relaxing about it - even though these days I find I need to put my glasses on to see :(  The Just Add Color Specialty Designer Series Paper (Item 144155) is perfect if you love to colour.  The images are whimsical and easy to colour.

The card features the house paper and I love the bright colours that are featured. It reminds me of San Francisco with the row of brightly coloured houses.  The architecture also reminds me of the houses along the canals in Amsterdam.

I stayed true to the catalogue picture and used the new Embossing Paste to create textured clouds in the background!

Here's my card:


It was so much fun to make!

Fancy Fold Birthday Card - 2 ways

I wanted to share with you a birthday card I made over the weekend.  It is one of the cards that we'll be making tonight at my Make and Take Tuesday event.  I originally designed the card using the Happy Birthday Thinlet and then decided that it was a card that could be re-created with the Stylized Birthday stamp set for those people who don't have a Big Shot.

I love how it turned out.

First the card with the Happy Birthday Thinlet.



Here's the cards with the stamped Happy Birthday.  Just as beautiful

Can you case it Friday - Wood Words

Back again with an easy CASE from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.  This card is cased from a quick and easy card on page 158 of the catalogue and uses the Wood Words stamp set (Item 143928). What I love about this is that it really is quick and easy with a little bit of stamping and some of the great Copper Trim (one of my favourite items from the catalogue).

First, here's the card I CASE'd.

Now, here's my card.

I'm posting one day early this week as it's a holiday weekend and I'm taking an extra day!  Happy BC Day for those of you in British Columbia!

Here's my next CASE of a card from the Annual Catalogue.  Yep, it's just about identical.  What made it so easy is the use of some lovely wood grained Designer Series Paper, a little bit of stamping and then some trim.  No muss, no fuss when you need a quick card for any occasion!

Can you case it Friday - Beautiful Bouquet

Apologies for the late posting.  I had the best of intentions on Friday to post this but I was travelling from Charleston, South Carolina to Ladysmith and everything seemed to go wrong.  Charleston is a very pretty place to visit although I would suggest visiting in the fall when it's a little cooler and less humid!  I was only there for 3 days so didn't see a lot, but what I saw was lovely!  My travel plans on Friday went side ways when my flight from Charleston to Newark was delayed - no idea why, the plane was at the gate, but not leaving at the scheduled time :(  That meant I wouldn't make my connection to Vancouver.  I was put on a flight to Seattle and then Vancouver, but that meant I missed my connection to Ladysmith.  Oh well, I was happier with an overnight stay in Vancouver than elsewhere.  Finally home on Saturday morning :)

I'm spending my day in my craft room - just feels good to relax!

Here's my third instalment in my Can you CASE it Friday series.  This time I CASE'd the card from page 93 of the Annual Catalogue using the Beautiful Bouquet bundle (Item 145297).  I didn't change much from the original - just the embossing folder and doily.  I really like how fresh this card looks!  

First, here's the card I CASE'd.

And now my card.  Pretty close.

Can you case it Friday - Label Me Pretty

This is the second in my series of CASE'ing the Stampin' Up! catalogue.  Today I'm featuring the Label Me Pretty stamp set and Pretty Label punch.  I found this card on page 27 of the Annual Catalogue.

It's really simple and very pretty.  On first glance I thought I had everything I needed to CASE this card but as I pulled my supplies I realized I was missing many of the products that were used - Burlap stamp set, embossing folder, and wooden embellishments.  Oh well, I decided to change it up and create a version of the card using the same stamp set and punch and the same layout.  Here's the card I created:


You can see it has the same general layout, but I used Early Espresso and Crumb Cake card stock.  For the background I stamped using Crumb Cake ink with the Postscript stamp set.  It's hard to see on the card, but I embossed the largest banner with the Petal Burst embossing folder.  

I stamped the image in Early Espresso and coloured it using the Watercolour Pencils and blended with a Blender Pen.  My embellishment is the new gold mini sequin trim.

This card may be more "inspired by" the original card but it doesn't really matter, I'm pretty happy with it.

Do you love coffee? Even if you don't Coffee Cafe is adorable!

Is coffee one of the first things on your mind when you wake up?  It is for me, so when I saw Coffee Cafe in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, I knew I had to have it.  Check out this card that I made.


The card uses a number of new products from the Annual Catalogue.

This card came together a bit organically.  I realize as I look at the picture it has lots of layers, but that's because I kept adding to it.  It didn't seem to pop enough so I added a layer of Copper Foil to the base and also across the card.  I really like the finished product.

The Embossing Paste made me "squeal" when I saw it.  I love mixed media and textures and have always hoped there would be a way to combine it on my cards.  It was so easy to add some texture with the paste.  You do have to let it dry, but mine dried quite quickly so by the time I was finished with the card I could assemble.  One tip I found is that you should make your embossed piece larger than you want it and then cut it down to make the edges a little cleaner.

Did you notice the Copper Trim?  It comes as 1/4" but you can pull the edges apart and spread it to 1" or more.  I love this trim and know it's going to become one of my staples.  You can tie a lovely bow with it or use it to add some interest to a card like I did on this one.

July Host Code:  CYH6FWC6

Use this host code when you order and receive a free gift from me!  If your order is over $200, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift.  I'll send you a set of 4 cards as a Thank You gift including the instructions so you can make at home.
