Today's CASE Card really is almost an exact CASE except for the stamp set.  I used the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set and coordinating Card Front Builders Thinlits Dies and the Big Shot to create my square Christmas Card. 

The Carols of Christmas is a new stamp set in the 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, but you can get your hands on it early during August along with the framelits.  Buy it in the Bundle and save 10%.

The square and scallop square are cut out using the Layering Squares Framelits Dies and the Big Shot.  The Layering Squares, Ovals and Circles are so versatile and offer so many options when you are creating cards.  And for the perfect pairs you could add the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

Every Thursday I CASE a card and share it here on my blog and on Friday I send out the PDF Tutorial with an image, supply list, measurements and step by step directions for the card.

Just in CASE - Card Front Builder Framelit Dies

BB JUST IN CASE

Each week Alison (My Border Buddy) and I CASE a card from the catalog. CASE is when you copy a card almost exactly or you might change up the colors or even the stamp set. If you go to far you didn't CASE the card but was inspired by the card.

Today I decided to CASE the card on the left and changed not only the colors bu the stamp set too!  I wanted to share with you the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set.  You wont' find it in the Annual Catalog as it is going to be in the new 2017 Holiday Catalog.

Good News! 

You can you get the Carols of Christmas stamp set and coordinating Card Front Builders Thinlits Dies  NOW, you don't have to wait until September 1st when the Holiday Catalog goes live.  It is all part of an early release for customers.

While it may seem early did you know the majority of my customers who send out hand stamped Christmas Cards are getting ready to order and stamp them early this fall?  I am not one of those people I am frantically stamping them at the last minute.

Just in CASE - Crafting Forever stamp set by Stampin' Up!

Crafting Forever Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Watercoloring www.stampstodiefor.com s

Today's just in CASE card was created using the crafting forever stamp set.  One of my favorite stamps in the set is a sentiment stamp that says "crafting forever ~ housework whenever".  I am procrastinating house work as we speak.  Just wanted to get one more card made and one more blog post written.

Each week Alison Solven (My Border Buddy) and I CASE a card from the catalog.  That basically means we copy the card.  Sometimes it is an exact CASE but as in this card sometimes we change up the stamp set and colors.

I still love to watercolor when I can using the aqua painters and the ink refills.  It works best if you stamp the Basic Black Archival Ink or the Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on a piece of watercolor paper and let it dry for a bit before you start to watercolor.  It doesn't have to be real long just a few minutes.

Its Thursday's Just in CASE Series.

CASE = COPY AND SHARE EVERYTHING

Just in CASE - Cool Treats stamp set by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor hand stamped birthday card
Left: Stampin' Up! Card page 93 ~ Right: My CASE


Each week Alison and I come up with a card to CASE and share it with you. This week I choose the card on page 93 of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  All products used to make my card are from Stampin' Up!

While the layout is the same and the colors similar I choose the Cool Treats stamp set to create my CASE card.  My Polka Dots Basic Embossing Folder had not arrived yet when I made my card so I used the Seaside Embossing Folder. 

Just in CASE - Cool Treats stamp set by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor hand stamped birthday card 2


These ice cream treats almost look good enough to eat.   As a child when I went to visit my friend who lived in town in the early 60's the ice cream truck would ring its bell as it came down the street.  We would run out with a dime in our hands to buy a treat,  I loved the creamsicles.  I always thought it was so magical. 

I only lived a mile from downtown but it was considered the country so no ice cream trucks came by.   They maybe should have because we had lots of kids on our road.  So many wonderful memories of growing up playing moon light star light, Anti-I-over and baseball.

Each week Alison (My Border Buddy) and I CASE a card from the catalog.  CASE is when you copy a card almost exactly or you might change up the colors or even the stamp set.  If you go to far you didn't CASE the card but was inspired by the card.

I often hear I am not creative - you don't have to be creative to enjoy and love stamping.  And with time it can help you become creative.  When I first became a demonstrator and for many years I CASEd everything for my classes and workshops. 

It was many years later when I was sharing online that I thought I need to create some of my own cards.  So I would pick out a card and change up the colors and stamp set to create my own card.  After awhile I was able to stamp my own creations and it felt amazing.

So if you don't feel creative just start to CASE!

The Stampin' Up! Catalog is full of inspiration? 

See a card you like but don't have the stamp set? No worries you can CASE the card using a different stamp set and even different colors.  But if you go too far you have created you own card. 

CASE = Copy and Share Everything

Each Thursday my border buddy Alison Solven and I hand stamp a card we CASE from the Stampin' Up! Catalog and share it on our blogs.  Sometimes I CASE them almost exactly the same and sometimes I change almost everything up.

Oh So Eclectic stamp set by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com Just in CASE Card Series


Like anything new I seem to gravitate to the new 2017-2019 In-Colors.  The card base is made using the Fresh Fig In-Color.  And don't you just love foil paper, the matting is from the Eastern Beauty Designer Series Paper that has been so popular it was on backorder for a time but is available now.

The flower is from the Oh So Eclectic Stamp Set which also has a coordinating Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies.  The outline flower is stamped with the new In-Color Emerald Tide and then I stamped the solid image over the blossom with Fresh Fig Classic Ink.  The little strip of paper below the "Oh, Hello Friend" is also from the Eastern Beauty Designer Series Paper.

Just in CASE - Crafting Forever Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!


Its Thursday's Just in CASE Series.  CASE = COPY AND SHARE EVERYTHING

CASEing is when you pick out a card and either copy it exactly or change up the stamp set or colors or maybe even both, but if you go too far you are then creating your very own card and just are inspired by the card or project you started to CASE.

For today's case I changed up the orientation of the card from landscape to portrait.  I switched up the stamp set but kept the color scheme of Basic Gray and Lemon Lime Twist.

Today's CASE (Copy And Share Everything) is an exact CASE except for the colors.

  • The Peekaboo Cardstock with the Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock
  • The Peekaboo Peach sentiment with Fresh Fig

The Swirly Bird stamp set and coordinating Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies has been a top seller.  I just recently purchased this stamp set and thinlits.  Sometimes when I get a new set I am not sure what to stamp so CASEing a card is a perfect start to get me going.  Next Tuesday you will see how I REALLY got creative with this set so be sure to stop back.
