Casing Ideas

August 19, 2017

Today I spent a little time following a blog hop with ideas for the Holiday Catalogue and spying on what other demonstrators are sharing on a Demonstrator only facebook page.  I was inspired to create several cards, some are an exact case and some use the same products but in a slightly different way.

The first card I am sharing with you is inspired by a card on this post by Chris Smith.  I used the same designer series paper and lace trim but changed the orientation and greeting.  So thank you Chris for your inspiration.

I attached Very Vanilla 1/2″ Lace Trim behind each long edge of a strip of Painted Harvest Designer Series Paper.  This paper is absolutely gorgeous and you will be able to purchase it once the Holiday Catalogue has gone live on 1st September.  The Designer Series Paper is attached to Very Vanilla card.  I stamped the greeting from the Butterfly Basics stamp set onto the top right hand corner using Early Espresso ink.  I stamped the long frilly edged leaf from the Painted Harvest stamp set onto the top left hand corner.  This is a two step image, so the first image is stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and the second image in Garden Green.  I stamped the three petal leaf onto scrap Very Vanilla card.  This is also a two step image and I used the same inks – Lemon Lime Twist and Garden Green.  I punched the leaf using the matching Leaf Punch.  The punched leaves are attached over the top of the stamped leaf using Glue Dots.  I stamped the flower onto scrap Very Vanilla card.  This is also a two step image.  I stamped the first image in Peekaboo Peach and the second image over the top using Tangerine Tangeo.  I punched the image using the Starburst Punch.  I stamped the centre of the flower using Early Espresso ink which I stamped onto scrap paper first to give a lighter image.  The flower is attached to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card I once more stamped the frilly edged leaf using  Lemon Lime Twist and Garden Green ink.  I also stamped and punched the three petal leaf using the same colours.

I am really loving the Painted Harvest stamp set and the co-ordinating products.  I am sure that you will love it too once you begin to imagine the possibilities.  I’d love to hear what you think.

Once more a big thank you to Chris for her inspiration.

Bye for now,
