On the CASE: Graceful Glass

Say Hello to the Graceful Glass Suite!

When I saw this suite at OnStage a few months ago, I knew it would be on my short list. The Gothic Script calligraphy paired with the stained glass images were just spot on and something that I haven’t seen lately. On top of that, creating a DSP paper stack that is vellum was genius! There’s so many cool ways to color the paper, and of course, endless color combinations.

This is probably not the last CASE file you will see from this suite! (Ann mentioned she might do one too.) I wanted to get to this one for sure because it shows off all of the beautiful parts of the suite in one design.

For On the CASE with Ann & Nicole (June2018 -Graceful Glass - 2018-19 Annual Catalog). Featuring, Painted Glass stamp set, Stained Glass thinlits, Graceful Glass designer vellum, Big Shot Embossing Mats.

Stamps and Paper and Inks … Oh, My!

Stamps: Painted Glass
Paper: Thick Whisper White (5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″) Whisper White (3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″), Gray Granite (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, 2 – 1 1/4″ x 5″), Petal Pink (3/4″ x 3″), Basic, Black Cardstock (5″ x 6″), Graceful Glass Vellum Designer Series Paper (3″ x 3″)
Ink: Lovely Lipstick Classic Ink
Stampin’ Write Markers: Petal Pink, Lovely Lipstick, Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo
Accessories: 1/4″ Black Cord, Tinted Vintage Faceted Buttons
Other: Stained Glass Thinlits, Big Shot, Embossing Mat, Triple Banner Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots

On the CASE Notes

(your step-by-step guide)

  1. Score the card base at 4 1/4″. Fold and burnish the edge with a bone folder. Adhere the Gray Granite panel to the card base. Set aside.
  2. Color in the 3x3 square of Graceful Glass vellum using Stampin’ Write markers as shown.
  3. Mount the colored design on the square of Whisper White using glue dots.

***Nit-picky details: I used Stampin’ Write markers instead of Stampin’ Blends (since the new colors aren’t available yet). That means that you should not use too much ink so the paper doesn’t curl up or pill, and use a Heat Tool to set the ink.

  1. Diecut the leading shape in Basic Black cardstock.
  2. Emboss two pieces of Gray Granite with the leading shape die and the Embossing Mats.
  1. Adhere the embossed panels to the card base – leave approx 1/2″ at the top and bottom.
  2. Add diecut to the center of the card. Adhere using SNAIL just down the center where it will be covered eventually.
  3. Add two lengths of Black Cord down the center.
  4. Adhere the stained glass panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  5. Stamp the sentiment in Lovely Lipstick on the Petal Pink strip. Flag the end using the Banner Triple Punch.
  6. Adhere the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. Adhere the Tinted Faceted Gem using a Glue Dot.

How Hard Was It to Crack this CASE?

Difficulty Level: 3 out of 5 – I was really torn on the difficulty level. The card came together quickly, but I think there are a few “attention to detail” things that take it to a “3”. First, if you’re going to use Stampin’ Write markers to color, do it with a gentle touch. It doesn’t take much ink and its easy to over-color and cause the paper to curl or pill. Take your time, stay in the lines, and use as little ink as possible! DON’T FORGET TO HEAT SET or allow to dry for longer than you think you need to.

If you’re using Stampin’ Blends, they’ll dry super quick so you won’t have any of those problems!

The second moderately advanced technique is using the new Embossing Mat. Follow the instructions! I cut the Gray pieces to the exact finished size (1 1/4″ x 5″). So, when I placed the embossing mat over top, I held the paper to the die and covered the bottom half, then flopped the rest of the mat over top. Once in place it stayed. The effect is stunning!

Happy New Catalog Week!!

As I’m sure you know, the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog was released on Friday. That means that it’s time for new inspiration and lots of fun new products and stamps. (Don’t have a catalog yet? Get one from me here!)

That also means that Ann and I are On the CASE with brand new step-by-step guides from projects in the catalog. This week I thought I’d share a fun and stamp-free (gasp!) design that would go perfect with a little gift, or all by itself, tucked secretly in someone’s pocket or backpack!

For On the CASE with Ann & Nicole (June2018 -Delightfully Detailed - 2018-19 Annual Catalog). Featuring, Delightfully Detailed Memories & More, Whisper White Memories & More Cards & Envelopes, Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.

Stamps and Paper and Inks … Oh, My!

Stamps: None!
Paper: Whisper White Memories & More Notecards & Envelopes (small card & envelope), Delightfully Detailed Memories & More (any patterned 3x4 card),  Mint Macaron Cardstock (1/4″ x 3″), Blackberry Bliss Cardstock (2 1/4″ x 2 1/4″), white scalloped sticker (Memories & More pack)
Inks: None!
Accessories: Gold Metallic Thread, 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle RIbbon, Faceted Dots
Other: 2″ Round Punch, Stampin’ DImensionals, Mini Glue Dots

On the CASE Notes

(your step-by-step guide)

  1. Punch a 2″ circle of Blackberry Bliss Cardstock.
  2. Add the “hello” sticker from the Memories & More pack to the Blackberry circle.
  3. Add a 2 1/2″ piece of Polka Dot Tulle ribbon to the sentiment – use Mini Glue Dots.
  4. Adhere the white scalloped sticker to the 1/4″ strip of Mint Macaron.
  5. Adhere the strip element to the back of the sentiment with additional Glue Dots.
  6. Add rings of Gold Metallic Thread with a few more Glue Dots.
  1. Adhere the Memories & More card to the card base.
  2. Adhere the finished sentiment element with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  3. Add Mint Macaron Faceted Dots as desired.

How Hard Was It to Crack this CASE?

Difficulty Level: 1 out of 5 – Looking for quick and easy this summer? This is your card! The hardest part was aligning the sticker to the punched circle! I used my Paper Piercing Tool to help hold the sticker as I placed it on the cardstock. If you wanted, you could put the sticker on the cardstock, then punch. It works well either way.

On the CASE: Lift Me Up

Welcome to this week’s On the CASE with Ann & Nicole!

We’ve reached the end of the Stampin’ Up! year, which means we’re closing the books on the 2017-18 Annual Catalog and the 2018 Occasions Catalog. Though we made it through lots and lots of projects, there’s still many left unsolved. So, don’t be afraid to keep your catalog as a source of inspiration for years to come!

This week, I chose to focus on a stamp and die set that will carry over into the 2018-19 catalog; Lift Me Up and the Up & Away Thinlits. This fun set first caught my eye in the 2017 Occasions Catalog and it’s been popular enough to make it into not one, but now two Annual Catalogs.

The dies are fun, and versatile, and the sentiments are uplifiting, with fabulous fonts. I took the sample on page 58 and changed it from a piece of home decor to a card!

For On the CASE with Ann & Nicole (May 2018 -Lift Me Up - 2017-18 Annual Catalog). Featuring, Lift Me Up stamp set, Up & Away Thinlits. For more details including tips for CASE-ing this card , click through. #pmretreat #stampinup #congrats #encouragement #hotairballoon #handstamped

Stamps and Paper and Inks … Oh, My!

Stamps: Lift Me Up
Paper: Thick Whisper White Cardstock (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″), Birthday Memories DSP (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″), Whisper White Cardstock (3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″), Sahara Sand Cardstock ( 3 pcs, each 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″), Daffodil Delight Cardstock (2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″), Melon Mambo Cardstock (2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″), Pear Pizzazz Cardstock (2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″), Pool Party Cardstock (2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″), Whisper White Cardstock (2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″)
Inks: Sahara Sand Classic Ink
Accessories: None
Other: Big Shot, Precision Base Plate, Big Shot Die Brush, Up & Away Thinlits, Stamparatus

On the CASE Notes

(your step-by-step guide)

  1. Score your card base at 4 1/4″. Fold and burnish the edge with a bone folder.
  2. Diecut three balloon shapes from Sahara Sand cardstock. Use the Big Shot Die Brush to remove all the little pieces.
  3. Diecut clouds from Whisper White cardstock. You will need a total of 6 clouds.
  4. Diecut balloon color pieces – three of each as shown using Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz and Pool Party cardstock.

 

  1. Adhere the colored pieces to the back of each balloon as shown.
  2. Set up Stamparatus to stamp sentiment on Whisper White panel. Use a finished balloon to gauge where the sentiment should go. Mask off the “congratulations” portion of the stamp so just “You Soar Above the Rest” is stamped in Sahara Sand ink.
  3. Adhere the finished sentiment panel to the DSP panel. Adhere finished panel to the card base.
  1. Gently fold each balloon in half up the center.
  2. Adhere the three balloons together to make one, dimensional balloon.
  3. Adhere the finished balloon to the card.
  4. Add clouds to card.

How Hard Was It to Crack this CASE?

Difficulty Level: 2 out of 5 – Making the 3-D balloon was the hardest part! You can make it easier by just using one balloon. For a card, that’s a totally acceptable shortcut! With graduation party season in full swing, this card would be a great accompaniment to any gift!

On the CASE: Rose Wonder

Do you ever feel like you’re the last on the bandwagon for a new crafting technique?

That’s me on this week’s CASE. I’ve been eyeballing this particular design for a while now. I kept putting it off because I thought it would take longer than I had to explore and learn how to CASE the project.

Well – I was wrong! And, now, I wish I had done this CASE file a long time ago!

If you are in the market for an absolutely stunning card – perhaps changing up the sentiment for a last-minute Mother’s Day design – today’s CASE is for you!

You will be amazed at how quickly the design comes together, and how fun it is to make!

For On the CASE with Ann & Nicole (May 2018 -Rose Wonder - 2017-18 Annual Catalog). Featuring, Rose Wonder stamp set, Stampin' Write markers, Vellum. For more details including tips for CASE-ing this card , click through. #pmretreat #stampinup #birthday #rose #handstamped

Stamps and Paper and Inks … Oh, My!

Stamps: Rose Wonder
Paper: Thick Whisper White Cardstock (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″), Vellum (4 1/4″ x 5″), Whisper White Cardstock (1″ x 3 1/2″)
Inks: Chocolate Chip Classic Ink, Versamark, Stampin’ Write markers: Powder Pink, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive
Accessories: Linen Thread, Pearls Basic Jewels
Other: Embossing Buddy, White Stampin’ Emboss powder, Heat Tool, Stamparatus, Fine Tip Glue, Stampin’ Dimensionals

On the CASE Notes

(your step-by-step guide)

  1. Score your card base at 4 1/4″. Fold and burnish the edge with a bone folder.
  2. Line up the piece of vellum in the Stamparatus. Use the Embossing buddy on the vellum, then stamp the rose image in Versamark.
  3. Line up the sentiment on the 1″ strip of Whisper White. Stamp image, then flag the left side as desired.
  1. On the BACK side of the embossed rose, color in the rose starting with Powder Pink.
  2. Add shading with Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral.
  3. Color in the leaves with Pear Pizzazz.
  4. Finish coloring by adding leaf shading with Old Olive.
  1. Adhere the vellum piece to the card base with the precision glue pen. It can be added to areas where there is embossing powder, or small dots can be put in the corners. It does not show through the vellum very much at all.
  2. Add sentiment to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  3. Add linen thread to the top of the design.
  4. Add the three small pearls around the sentiment.

How Hard Was It to Crack this CASE?

Difficulty Level: 2 out of 5 – I was pleasantly surprised at how easy this project was! I did have to take a few minutes to re-ink my markers. Seems they haven’t been used in a while… Good thing the reinkers will get them up and running again, quickly! Honestly, the hardest part was figuring out how to adhere the vellum to the card base. Precision glue really did the trick!

The Embossing Buddy is a MUST for this project as vellum is typically static-ey. Also, be sure to use the low setting on your Heat Tool so the vellum doesn’t burn!

On the CASE: Color Theory M&M

We’re On the CASE again!

Ann and I are winding down our last few 2017-18 CASEs. There’s still so many projects in the annual catalog – we just couldn’t get to them all! But, we did get through a lot and look forward to all new designs in the new Annual Catalog!

It’s been a harrowing 2 weeks with a death in the family, so I needed something quick and simple.

Enter Memories & More. With their pre-printed sentiments and various stickers and fun patterned cards, it’s simple to put together a design in a jiffy without any stamping!

For On the CASE with Ann & Nicole (April 2018 - Color Theory - 2017-18 Annual Catalog). Featuring, Color Theory Memories & More. For more details including tips for CASE-ing this card , click through. #pmretreat #stampinup #hello #friend #handstamped

Stamps and Paper and Inks … Oh, My!

Stamps: None
Paper: Thick Whisper White Cardstock (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″), Crumb Cake Cardstock (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″)
Inks: None
Accessories: Color Theory Memories & More card pack, Linen Thread
Other: None

On the CASE Notes

(your step-by-step guide)

  1. Score your card base at 4 1/4″. Fold and burnish the edge with a bone folder.
  2. Adhere Crumb Cake cardstock to card base.
  3. Select the pictured Memories & More cards and sticker sheet.
  4. Cut polka dot card in half. Adhere to either side of the card base.
  5. Adhere circular sticker as shown.
  1. Add linen thread and flower panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  2. Adhere sentiment stickers & linen thread bow.

How Hard Was It to Crack this CASE?

Difficulty Level: 1 out of 5 -If you need quick and easy – this is your card! Using the Memories & More card packs to create greeting cards instead of scrapbook pages is genius! You can use the sticker words, or any of the cards that have pre-printed sentiments to whip up a quick design in no time! The great thing? Nobody has to know that you didn’t actually stamp! It’ll be our secret!!
