Each Thursday my Border Buddy Patsy Waggoner from the US and I take turns creating a card that we CASED from a current Stampin’ Up! catalogue. CASE means Copy And Selectively Edit. The beautiful projects from the concept artists from Stampin' Up! are a great way to be inspired! When you CASE, you can copy it exactly, or selectively edit it by changing the colors or the stamp set or both.
In my card today I cased a card on page 81 from the January – June 2021 Mini Catalogue.
Stamping Paper Measurements
- Mango Melody (card base) – 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"; scored at 4 1/4"
- Basic Black (layer 1) – 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"
- Basic White (layer 2) – 5" x 3 3/4"
- Basic White (chicken) – 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"
- Basic White (sentiment) – 2 3/8" x 3/4"
Simple Stamping Steps
- Fold the Mango Melody cardstock in half to create card base.
- Ink the "blotch" image from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set in Daffodil Delight ink and stamp randomly on the Basic White layer.
- Glue the stamped piece to the Basic Black mat.
- Wrap the black/white twine from the Playful Pets Suite around the pieces twice and tie in a bow on the right side. Glue the pieces to the middle of the card base.
- Stamp the chicken from Hey Chick Stamp Set in Memento Black ink o the Basic White and colour with Stampin' Blends – Cajun Craze, Mango Melody, So Saffron and Daffodil Delight. I added some Crumb Cake along his belly to create some "dimension".
- Cut out the chicken with the coordinating Chick Dies using the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.
- Stamp the sentiment in Memento Black on the Basic White. Pop up sentiment with Stampin' Dimensionals below the trim.
- Pop up the chicken with Stampin' Dimensionals on the sentiment.
- Add sequins from the Artistry Blooms Sequins Assortment.
