Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday! I am so glad you stopped by, and if this is your first time, be sure to join my email list to catch up on all the scrappy news around here. Have you been over to the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group to see what we’re casing this week? If not, here’s a look at the sample and the sketch:
Isn’t that the cutest card? I fell in love with this card and knew I had to create it, with my spin of course!! lol That’s the fun part of casing (copy and share everything)! I followed the sketch for my measurements for everything but the sentiment label. I cut mine down to 3/4″ x 1 1/2″ because I didn’t like how it looked with the 1″ x 2″ size of cardstock.
I chose to use Pretty Peacock for my card base and both pieces of the DSP are from the Come to Gather pack. I absolutely love that wood grain piece and it goes so well with Pretty Peacock! I started by cutting my layers and gluing the gingham piece to the card base. I then stamped my pumpkins in Early Espresso ink on the wood grain DSP, using a punched pumpkin as a mask when I stamped the pumpkins on top. I glued it to the card base and then I added my piece of Scalloped Linen Ribbon in Pretty Peacock with Mini Glue Dots. Next I stamped another pumpkin on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock in Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the pumpkin with my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends markers and punched it out. I stamped the two leaves and the stem in Tuxedo Black ink and colored them. For the stem I used the light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends and for the leaves I used the Old Olive, the light Pumpkin Pie and the Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. Those alcohol markers make coloring and blending so easy!! I just love them! I punched out the stem and added it to the back of the pumpkin with a Mini Glue Dot. I then had to fussy cut the leaves. I added the pumpkin to the card front with dimensionals and then added a bow in Linen Thread with a Mini Glue Dot to the piece of ribbon. I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso ink on my little label, added the other leaf with a Mini Glue Dot and then added it with dimensionals over the bow, just like in the sample. I wanted some kind of bling, so I added some of the Holiday Rhinestones. They go perfectly!
Now it’s your turn! Create your take on today’s sample and share it with us over at the FB Group. Remember, you can create it any way you want to!! That’s what makes casing so fun, there are no limits!! If you aren’t a member of the FB Group yet, just request to join; we would love to have come over and play along with us!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great Tuesday!
