Just Notecards CASEing the Blog Hop Design 8

I helped coordinate a Sale-A-Bration 2018 Blog Hop that has 15 stops. If you missed it, click here to hop along.

My design below was CASED from fellow demonstrator Sandra Roberts and her Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop entry. You can see her design by clicking here. I decided to use lots of color instead of paper layers on my notecards. This makes for quick thank you cards.

Snowflakes inside but not out, CASEing the Blog Hop Design 7

As I write this post, we have yet to get snow that requires the snow blower to be fired up. I have been surprised when Jim has shoveled the few times we have gotten flakes because they could have just all blown or melted away. We still have many months of winter so I expect the flake count to start adding up. Until then, I will continue to create with my snowflake stamps in my cozy stampin room.

My snowflake design below was CASED from fellow Canadian demonstrator Elizabeth Green and her Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop entry. I mostly followed her card #2 design that you can see by clicking here. I helped coordinate this hop that has 15 stops. If you missed it, click here to hop along.

Our silver foil sheets emboss beautifully using embossing folders. I used our new Simple Strips embossing folder to draw the eye to the center of the card. The “amazing” was also cut on the silver foil sheet using the Sale-A-Bration Celebrate You thinlits that you can earn for free with qualifying order. I used our fine tip glue pen to adhere “amazing” to the card.

The clear faceted gem adds a nice detail…

Inside the card is decorated too. The exclamation point requires no additional paper or cutting. The “o” is punched from the “o” in the silver “you”. The top part is punched from the “g” in “amazing” from the card front.

Supplies used are below plus the Big Shot machine with magnetic and multi purpose platforms. The 3 layering circles framelits are from the Layering Circles framelit collection. 16 circles in that collection so it is a great buy!

*Update* It snowed over night. Looks like I’ll be getting out the shovel. Still snowing though so I may wait for a bit. It appears to be light and fluffy. Let’s hope it is to make it an easier job. My front step snowpeeps will be appearing while I am outside as is tradition with the first snowfall!

 

Happy Second Anniversary Tricia! Blog Hop CASE 6

Today is the 2 year celebration of my sister Tricia signing up to be a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator on my Super Awesome Stampers Team. Congratulations Tricia!

I created this greeting card to celebrate and share with her.

Tricia likes the warm greens so I picked old olive shades with soft suede carstock. The Sale-A-Bration product Sweet Soiree Memories and More pack has assorted designs already preprinted in old olive, rich razzleberry, peek-a-boo peach and other colors. Here is a sampling from the pack. Both sides are printed so if you don’t like the patterns or sentiments on one side, you can flip it over and use the other side.

The supplies I used included our Stampin’ Write markers to lightly color the flower swosh on the Happy stamp. The fat tip is for adding color and the fine tip is for writing. Both tips on the same marker makes our markers marvelous. I use the fine tip to color coordinate the personal message included on the inside of the card. I also used the new Simple Strips embossing folder which is not in the photo.

Did you notice the word anniversary was custom cut using the Lots of Labels framelit that was also used to cut the Happy layer? See how to custom cut the tag in the next photos.

CASEing the Blog Hop Design 5

I helped coordinate a Sale-A-Bration 2018 Blog Hop that was posted last week. If you missed it, click here to hop along.

I got the idea to CASE the designs shared on the other blogs after seeing all the great ideas from my fellow demonstrators. Today, I am CASEing Susan Murphy. Click here to see Susan’s design.

Susan used the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Heartfelt Blooms which has built in depth. I scanned my stamp stash to find Birthday Blossoms has subtle but not as detailed built in depth. Since the crumb cake flowers are much smaller on my card, I added the larger pansy stamp with coordinating punch for a focal point.

I had also planned to have a horizontal card like Susan did. I attached all the layers and then found the sentiment that I had stamped. It did not fit horizontally so decided to change it to a vertical card. I also missed adding the linen thread that she used since I found that after all the layers were attached too. Linen thread is a favorite of mine so drat!

I substituted a piece of patterned paper from the Delightful Daisy package where Susan used night of navy cardstock. I did use her paper snips trick to make flags on the sentiment cardstock.

Leave a comment if you like my CASE. CASE means copy and share everything and typically means using someone else’s design to create something with your own twist. I am planning 10 more twists since we had 15 blog hop stops. So keep checking back for more CASEing!

You can order all of these products and check out the Sale-A-Bration brochure at my online store here. Before ordering, check out my Online Shopper Rewards on the right side of my blog. I appreciate and thank you for ordering with me!
