CASE’n Myself

This year I am focusing on making cards that I am in need of:  sympathy, masculine, thank you and thinking of you.  Most of my cards seem to be birthday.

I have old Stampn’ Up! stamps on wood blocks that I just can’t part with.  Thoughts and Prayers is just one of those sets.

Here I mounted my sentiment on Melon Mambo and Flirty Flamingo and matted the card with Blackberry Bliss.  Funny story about this colour.  I thoroughly love this colour and ordered six packs when it was set to “retire” from the in-colours.  Well, wasn’t I surprised when it came out as a permanent colour in the next catalogue.

Using Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, and Old Olive, I coloured my stamp and “huffed” on it to add moisture so I could stamp it out with good results.

It isn’t unusual for me to make 8 cards at one time when I’m working on a design.  The hard work is coming up with a design and since I’m pulling out all the colours I need, it only makes sense to make multiples.

I decided to CASE an old card, from many years ago, that I see time and time again on Pinterest.  It’s wildly popular–LOL.  It just seems “old” to me.  Here is the card that I CASE’d.

Back in the day, most of my cards were 5″ x 5″, or larger, but since I’m sending out a large number of cards, I scale everything down to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ inches (A2).

I’d love to see you do a CASE using one of your older cards.  If you do, please leave me a message with your link, and I’d be happy to leave a comment.

Get Creative!

You did a gorgeous case of your card, some stamps just don’t go out of style and this is certainly one! Sounds like you had plenty of that paper to do mulitples of this card!

Isn’t if fun to want to case YOUR work in the making of a new card? It always tickles me when I copy something I did years ago. It’s fun to see improvement in my work from year to year, too!. You did a beautiful job, Beth! I have a whole wall rack plus 3 plastic boxes of wood stamps I can’t part with. Ugh! Have a good day, dear friend!!!
