Stampin' Up! Beach Happy Stamp Set and #CASEingtuesday187

Good Morning!  

This is my submission for this weeks CASE on page 7 of the Occasions Catalog!  I just love the soft color palette and this super simple sketch!  #CASEingtuesday187

This is the sketch I was working off of, you can see again, I made a small modification to add a sentiment.  I stamped right on the designer paper, to add interest to the center panel.  I love how you can see the designer paper thru the hole made by the rectangle die for the big shot.

I'll share how to make this on my live on facebook at 9AM today!  I hope you can stop by!

Here is the original card fro page 7 of sale a bration book.

Until next week! Stay crafty!

Stampin' Up Hey Love - You Otter Be My Valentine Card - #CASEingtuesday185

Good Morning Friends!

Stampin' Up released so many amazing valentine products this year.  I almost forgot this SWEET stamp set called Hey Love by Stampin' Up!

Base: Lovely Lipstick, 4 1/4" x 8 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Layer 2: Soft Suede 4" x 3"
Layer 3: All my love Designer Series Paper 3 7/8" x 2 7/8"
Layer 4: soft suede 4 1/4" x 1 3/4", punched with the triple banner punch

Layer 7: Sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede ink and punched twice to change the punch shape with the new Story Label Punch, being released on 3/1/19 to customers

I took the sketch from #CASEingtuesday185 and turned it on It's side to make this little guy, and my hubby laughed out loud when I showed him the card. Although if I were making a card for him, the Gorilla in this set would suit him more I think!  :)  See the whole set in the shopping list below.

I colored the otter with Stampin' blends and snuck in a preview punch that will be available on March 1st.  I will be live at 9AM over on my facebook business page to share all the details on how I made this card, and I'll post the replay here if you need it.

Stampin Up By The Bay - Casing Tuesday #184 #CASEingtuesday184

Good Morning Stampers!

What a fun sketch today from our casing Tuesday team of stampers!

This week's card is inspired by my upcoming stamping retreat in Kennebunk Maine.  There is still room if you want to join us for a wonderful beach getaway.  It's very chilly here in New England, but no matter the time of year, being right on the ocean, right beside my besties, simply makes me happy!

The base of this card features Gray Granite, and the Gingham Gala DSP in Balmy Blue.  The strip across the middle is Basic Gray and the two top layers are whisper white!  All the stamping was done in gray granite.  If you were looking to remake this card, here are some potential measurements you could try! (right on the sketch)! Got to love that!

Here is the sketch with Measurements to help you get started!  I just love a great sketch challenge.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Here is the shopping list of supplies I used to create this one!  Very grateful for you!

Stampin' Up Hello Cupcake and CASE-ing Tuesday Sketches #183 #CASEingtuesday183

 Good Morning Friends!

Since the time I joined card making 13 years ago, I have been in LOVE with sketches.  My great friend Brenda Quintana runs a sketch challenge that "CASES" or copies the layout of a card in one of the catalogs, and uses it as a jumping off point to design projects!

This week we were chatting and somehow it came up, and I've joined her design team!

This is my submission for this weeks CASE on page 14 of the Occasions Catalog!  #CASEingtuesday183

What do you think? Did I do okay?

Here is the original card.  My measurements are a little different from the sketch, and I did add another element so that I could find room for my sentiment

Want to play along?  We have a dedicated facebook group for everyone to play you can find at this link.  

I went a little crazy with the layers but I was having fun!  Here are the measurements I used for my project.

Card Base Highland Heather Cardstock, 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Layer 2: Early Espresso Cardstock, 4 1/8" x 3 1/8"
Layer 3: Gingham Gala Designer paper 4x3"
Layer 4: Whisper White Stitched Circle
Layer 5: Early Espresso 1 3/4" circle
Layer 6: Whisper White 1 1/2" circle
Layer 7: Daffodil Delight, 3 1/2" x 1/4", punched with the triple banner punch both sides
Layer 8: Whisper White Cupcake topper, cut with scissors
Layer 9: Gingham Gala Adhesive Backed Sequence (daffodil flower)
