Just in CASE Series

Just in CASE - Quilted Christmas Suite by Stampin' Up!

It's time for another CASE (copy and share everything) card.  I have so much fun creating Just in CASE cards.  I like to use different stamp sets to show how you don't always need the exact same thing.  Sometimes it is hard when you see a card you love to substitute the stamp set or even colors.

The project in the catalog is one of the small pizza boxes decorated for gift giving. The boxes are 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" and food-safe with a protective coating inside so if you want to share a hand baked cookie the grease won't bleed through the box and mess up your decorative work.

Instead of the pizza box, I created a 3" x 3" card.  We have offered 3 x 3 note cards in the past with envelopes and I am excited to let you know that in the Holiday Catalog we have the envelopes.  It is easy to create the card by just cutting a 3" x 6" piece of Whisper White cardstock and folding it in half.

Notice the silver starburst mat around the circle.  I punched this out with the New Starburst Punch - Love It!!! I know I love everything.   That is maybe why I have been a demo/stamper for 20 years now, can't get enough of it.

Just in CASE Birthday Memories Square Card

BB JUST IN CASE

Each Thursday Alison and I each CASE (copy and share everything) from one of the current Stampin' Up! Catalogs.  Today I choose a card from 2017 Holiday Catalog on page 39. 

Just in CASE Birthday Deliver stamp set & Birthday Friends Framelits by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com 2
It is an exact CASE except for the stamp set and ribbon.  I replaced the Hearts Come Home stamp set with the Birthday Delivery stamp set and the coordinating Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper.  I also replaced the Real Red 1/8" ribbon with the Quilted Christmas ribbon. 

It may seem like it I don't own every stamp set, but I don't so sometimes I have to improvise sometimes, that is what CASEing is all about.  I am sure there are times you love a card and don't have the stamp set.  I hope you find the CASE cards helpful for you to see how to substitute a stamp set you may have on hand. 

Just in CASE Birthday Deliver stamp set & Birthday Friends Framelits by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com
The cake is cut out from the designer paper using the Birthday friends framelits die and Big Shot.   For the scalloped edge frame, I just placed the Scalloped edge circle from the Layering Circles Framelits on a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock and then placed the little smaller circle inside and punched.   Then using the smaller circle I placed it on the card front in the center and cut it out and then adhere the scallop frame around the cutout circle.

The corners of the tag are called ticket corners.  If you don't have a special ticket corner punch you can always use a small circle punch.  Most people have one of those in their stamping collection. 

Ticket Corners using corner rounder punch by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com
I usually use my punch upside down so I can see what I am doing.  For the ticket corner just place the corner of your cardstock into the circle punch at the desired depth and punch.   Repeat on all four corners.

It's Thursday and time for another CASE.  This is where Alison and I pick out a card to copy from one of the current Stampin' Up! Catalogs (2017-2018 Annual Catalog or the 2017 Holiday Catalog).  I chose to case a card from the Annual Catalog this week.

Left: Stampin' Up! Card pg 131 Annual Catalog ~ Right: My CASE

Most weeks I try to change up the stamp set or colors but this week I did an almost exact CASE.  Sometimes it is very enjoyable to just sit down and stamp and not have to think too much.  

The only thing I changed on the card was the background.  I just ordered the Pinewood Planks 3D Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder but it had not arrived yet, so I substituted it with the Hardwood Background Stamp. 

Just in CASE Thankful Thoughts by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com

The sentiment on this card is the focal point and comes from the One Big Meaning Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! I grab this stamp set often as my go to Thank You set.   Don't forget Newsletter subscribers receive a FREE PDF Tutorial each Friday with the directions for the Just in CASE Card.

Just in CASE - Falling Flowers Stamp Set

BB JUST IN CASE

Okay, what was I thinking when I decided to CASE this card.   While it was a blast to make the PDF Tutorial Directions were a nightmare LOL.

This really was fun to make all the layers and sponging.  

Years ago when I first became a demonstrator I had a Mom and 4 daughters who all stamped.   They actually had been stamping way longer than me.  

When they hosted a workshop I was always trying to think of amazing things to show them.  For one of their workshops I came up with three amazing techniques (can't remember what they were as it is 18+ years ago)

As I was sponging the edge of the card they asked: "what are you doing"?  

Sponging Stamping Technique www.stampstodiefor.com

I hesitantly said, "sponging the card".  They were so amazed and excited.   I thought WHAT? I spent hours preparing the other techniques and they were impressed with sponging? Yes, there were and I think of them all every time I sponge a card.  

Happy to say the youngest daughter Amanda has been a demonstrator on my team for several years now.

Left: Stampin' Up! card page 124 ~ Right: My CASE


Both cards used the Vintage Leaves stamp set and coordinating Leaflets Framelits Die. 

  • I changed up the card base and used Very Vanilla for mine - SU used Whisper White.  
  • Rather than stamping the leaf multiple times on different colored papers I used paper from the Autumn Leaves Designer Series Paper.   
  • My card features Buick Wall Embossing Folder - SU used Embossing Paste.  
  • I used a die from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits set and gold foil paper - SU used silver foil paper and a die from the Lovely Words Thinlits set.

I am pleased with how the card turned out.  It looks so elegant and special and yet it was fairly easy to make.  You all know me clean and simple - quick and easy and not too much fuss is my stamping mo.

Just in CASE - Birthday Banners Stamp Set

It's Thursday and time for another card CASE (copy and share everything). 

BB JUST IN CASE

Before I became a demonstrator 19 years ago this month I had a huge collection of cards. I would buy assorted cards in boxes when I found some I liked.  So making cards seemed like a natural idea. 

So when I saw this box on page 85 I naturally wanted to make a card. 

Just in CASE Series Birthday Banners stamp set by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com
Left: Stampin' Up! Card pg 85 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog ~ My CASE

My mother created a scrapbook in the late 1950's full of cards she received when I was born and my first few Birthdays.  As a child, I would sit and page through the scrapbook looking at all the fun and beautiful cards.  

While stamping can include a variety of projects I think my focus on cards in my business comes from my love of cards.

Just in CASE - Carols of Christmas Wreath

BB JUST IN CASE

Hello, Stampers is Just in CASE Thursday.  This is by far the most popular post of the week usually.  I get more emails saying thank you, I love this post, etc. 

CASE = Copy And Share Everything. 

I typically come up with most of my own designs but I do find CASEing actually quite fun.  Trying to figure out what stamp set I have that is similar if I don't have the same one can be a challenge and I always love a challenge.

Just in CASE Series Carols of Christmas stamp set by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com
Left: Stampin' Up! Card page 114 Annual Stampin' Up! ~ Right: My CASE

Stampin' Up! used the Holly Berry Happiness Photopolymer Stamp Set #142061.  I didn't have that set but had the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set and thought it would be a great substitute. 

The wreaths are both created with stamping the image multiple times.  I often find it difficult to actually make a circle.  I saw this cool someplace.

Step 1 creating Christmas Wreath www.stampstodiefor.com
Step One: I punched out a 2" circle from a piece of post it notes.

Step 2 Creating Christmas Wreath www.stampstodiefor.com
Step Two: I positioned the post it note on the piece of cardstock.


Step 3 Creating Christmas Wreath www.stampstodiefor.com
Step Three: I stamped the image around the circle one way and then flipped the stamp and stamped around the circle again.

Just in CASE - Ribbon of Courage

BB JUST IN CASE

Ribbon of Courage Stamp Set by Stampin Up and Support Ribbon Framelits www.stampstodiefor-horz
Left: Stampin' Up! card pg. 97 Annual Catalog ~ Right: My CASE

Every get stampers block?  Just don't know what to stamp?  Why not CASE a card? 

Sometimes when we see a card we think we need EVERYTHING on that card.  I know I often feel the same way.  But I didn't have the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate that is on the Stampin' Up! Card so I replaced it with a piece of the Fresh Florals Designers Series Paper.

Ribbon of courage stamp set

Stampin' Up! embossed their ribbon with White Embossing Powder and then colored it with the Calypso Coral Ink, I decided that was too much coloring for me so I just stamped it in Calypso Coral Classic Ink.

Ribbon of Courage Stamp Set by Stampin Up and Support Ribbon Framelits www.stampstodiefor.com 11

I did emboss the sentiment in Silver Embossing Powder.  I sometimes forget what an elegant effect that has. 

Ribbon of Courage Stamp Set by Stampin Up and Support Ribbon Framelits www.stampstodiefor-Product

I am sure you have more than one person you can create a card for using this set to honor them. 

Awareness ribbons are a piece of colored ribbon folded into a loop and are used in the United States, Canada, Australia, UK and other parts of the world as a way for people to support a cause or issue.  Most everyone is familiar with the Pink Ribbon for Breast Cancer and the Yellow Ribbon to support our military.  Some colored ribbons stand for more than one cause.

How has one of these causes effected your life?

Left: Stampin' Up! card pg. 114 Annual Catalog ~ Right: My CASE


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%. 

 

Carols of Christmas stamp set by Stampin Up www.stampstodiefor.com 1
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.
