Beautiful Peacock

I shared this design in yesterday’s blog hop. Thanks for hopping back for the design details. I started with the Tutti Frutti cards and envelopes. Bonus is that they are already cut, scored and have tone on tone “v” design printing. 2 24 2018bloghop3-001

The first layer is a diagonal striped rich razzleberry print that is part of the Sweet Soiree Memories and More card pack. It was originally sized at 4×6 inches. A 1×4 inch piece was cut off so it would fit on the card front.

Next, our delicate white doilie was cut in half and adhered as shown.

Close up of the peacock stamped on a piece of 3 x 3 7/8 inch whisper white cardstock. One of the circle stamps was used to create a daffodil delight inked border along one side and then one opposite corner. The “beautiful friend” stamp was cut using the lemon builder punch layered with a 1 inch circle punched rich razzleberry cardstock piece.

Sponge daubers were used to add daffodil light ink to the wing and head feathers. Crumb cake ink daubed underneath the peacock grounds the bird.

The lemon builder punch was used to create the sentiment.

Stamp the inside of the card with a sentiment from the Lovely Friends stamp set. Decorate the envelope back with daffodil delight inked peacock feathers.

Just Notecards CASEing the Blog Hop Design 8

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.

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!
