Category Archives: CASE that Card

Suite Sayings

SuiteSayingsI do love to CASE cards…no really I do!  Sometimes I’m just super busy with school and REALLY want to stamp but am just not feeling all that creative.  So…CASING to the rescue!

I’ve seen a couple cards like this on Pinterest (is there any other source of inspiration?) but I did change up several things on it.

We did this as a make and take at my craft group and I think it turned out cute.   I like the added second color of Tempting Turquoise!

Here’s the Details –

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 4 x 5 1/4, run through the Sunburst Thinlit (LOVE THIS) and add using dimensionals
  • Cucumber Crisp Striped Envelope paper – 2 x 4, cut into banner on both ends, add to card front
  • Basic Black – 1 1/2 x 3 5/8, cut into banner on both ends, add to card front
  • Whisper White – 7/8 x 2 3/4, stamp greeting using Cucumber Crisp and Tempting Turquoise markers, cut into banner on both ends, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Punch out large balloon in Tempting Turquoise and small on in Cucumber Crisp, use White Get Pen to add details, add pieces of White Baker’s Twine behind balloons, layer and add using dimensionals

You do you know what else is super easy and just SWEET?  Subscribing to the Create with Connie and Mary Mini Session!

And Many More

CAS369I noticed that the CAS challenge on SCS  is to feature lucky or green on your card.  Even though St. Patrick’s day is over, I thought it would be fun to do a 4 leaf clover and had the perfect saying from the “And Many More” set for the luck part!

This one really came together quickly using a little heart punch to make the leaves for the 4 leaf clover!

Here’s the details –

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Gold Glimmer Washi Tape (SAB) – add to card base
  • Cucumber Crush print – 1/2 x 4 1/4, add to right side of card

  • Cucumber Crush print – 1/8 x 4 1/4, add to left side of panel, add panel to card front
  • To make to of clover – 1/2″ circle (I just used the same print), add some glue dots, punch out 4 hearts (Itty Bitty Accents Punch), fold in half, open up and add to circle, add to card card front.
  • Gold Glimmer paper – punch out 1/4″ circle, add to center of clover to finish it off

Sky is the Limit

WI15SatHopWelcome

HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!  Welcome to the first Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Saturday Blog Hop for 2016!  We had a fun challenge for our design team where we challenged them to ‘trim down’ for the new year!  The challenge was no more than 2 layers and 1 embellishment!  Easy for some…difficult for others!  For me…just up my alley!

SatHopCAS

I LOVE this set.  When I see this plane image I think of my wonderful dad who LOVE to build and fly (okay…and frequently crash) motorized planes!  It was his very favorite hobby and brought him so much happiness.

Now looking at my card I think you can easily see it is two layers but embellishment?  Okay…I had a tough time figuring out an embellishment for this so my ’embellishment’ is that thin strip of diagonal black and white paper…PERFECT to add  a little interest but still keep everything CAS!

Here’s the details…

  • Real Red – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 7/8 x 4 1/4
    • Punch out cloud image from Tree Builder punch – use as mask and sponge two clouds in Soft Sky
    • Stamp large cloud image in Lost Lagoon, mask and stamp smaller cloud image in Smoky Slate
    • Stamp plane in Basic Black Archival
    • Stamp greeting in Real Red
  • Add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Basic Black diagonal stripe print (Neutrals dsp paper pack) – 1/8 x 4 1/4, add to Whisper White panel to finish off.

Howl-o-ween Treat

Howl-o-weenTreatWhat can I saw…I absolutely LOVE this little (well actually not so little!) owl!  As I work on projects I tend to have extra ‘pieces’ leftover (I know I’ve mentioned that before) and tend to have them sititng on my desk.  So if I need to come up with a card quick, I clean off my desk, find my leftover pieces and make a card from them.  Most of these were leftover except the base and two extra panels.

Here’s the details…

  • Rich Razzleberry – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Basic Black – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, add to card base on an angle.
  • Smoky Slate – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, run through the Woodland Embossing Folder, using the White Gel Pen to dd accents to the tree trunks and add to card base on an angle.
  • Whisper White – punch 2 1/2″ circle and add to card base.
  • Black Glimmer – 3/8 x 5 1/2, add to card base.
  • Stamp owl in Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White, cut out, add to card front.  Punch out two 1/4″ circles from Black Glimmer and add to eyes.
  • Whisper White Thick Cardstock – cut out ‘BOO’ and add using dimensionals.

Such an easy card…especially when you use the things from on top of your desk.  I do like the simple color scheme.

It won’t be long now until the Create with Connie and Mary September Mini Session will be ready for you.  Stay tuned for more details!

Set(s): Howl-o-ween Treat
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Smoky Slate, Rich Razzleberry, Black Glimmer
Ink: Rich Razzleberry
Other: Boo to You Framelits, 2 1/2″ Circle Punch, 1/4″ Hole Punch, Dimensionals

I Think You’re Great

New2Do you spend a lot of time on Pinterest pinning GREAT inspiration vowing that you are going to copy all these wonderful projects and well…your boards keep getting bigger but you have not started copying yet?

Well…since summer is here and I’m only teaching 2 classes this summer I’ve decided to start to copy some of the great pieces that I pinned.  Now by copy I mean that the some of the elements are there but that I’ve changed things to make the project Stampin’ Up! and put my one spin on it.  May card that I am copying can be found here.  You can see that mostly I copied the circle elements that were on there.

Here’s the details –

  • Basic Grey – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 3 5/8 x 3 5/8, layer onto Basic Black 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Hello Honey – cut bigger circle by layering 2 Circle Framelits, offsetting the inside one and then punching another using the 1 3/4 Circle Punch.  Add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Silver Glimmer – cut larger star using Star Framelits and punch out the 3 smaller stars using the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack star.  Add all to the card front using dimensionals.
  • Stamp the greeting using Versamark on Very Vanilla, black emboss, cut out and color the ‘to go!’ using Hello Honey marker.  Add to card front using dimensionals.

Is that just a fun card?  I LOVED the original one which I pinned for inspiration and am soo glad I went back and finally got around to copying it!

Set(s): I Think You’re Great
Paper: Very Vanilla, Basic Grey, Basic Black, Hello Honey, Silver Glimmer
Ink: Versamark, Hello Honey
Other: Circle Framelit, 1 3/4″ Circle Punch, Star Framelits, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Black Embossing Powder, Dimensionals
