On the CASE: Fruit Basket

Looking for a versatile card design that just needs a sentiment swap to make it perfect for any occasion?
My CASE file for this week’s On the CASE was a fun little design that could truly be for any sort of fun occasion. It also works as a “masculine” design since fruit is a pretty gender-neutral kind of thing!

I knew that I wanted to dive into the Tutti Fruitti product suite for my CASE project this week, but I was really up in the air about which card design I would choose. I went for the birthday design with lemons. I picked it mainly because it looked like it was the only A2-sized card on the page. But, when you look at the other samples and try to compare them to scale, I’m not quite sold that the design was actually A2 (4 1/4 x 5 1/2). But, if it’s not, then I don’t know what size it is! It’s not the new long notecard size – perhaps it was just a regular notecard (3 1/2 x 5)? Now that I’m looking at it – I bet it was!!

Oh well – you’re getting a modified CASE file – sized for A2. But, guess what?! That just shows that you can take almost any design and make it whatever size you want! LOL!! Not crazy about the 3x3 samples? You can just extend the DSP, or add an additional cardstock panel behind it to make a different size!

Stamps and Paper and Inks … Oh, My!

Stamps: Fruit Basket (bundle)
Paper: Thick Whisper White Cardstock (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″), Daffodil Delight Cardstock (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) Whisper White Cardstock (5″ x 3 1/4″), Whisper White Cardstock strip (3/4″ x 4″)
Inks: Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist
Accessories: Tutti-fruitti Adhesive Backed Sequins, Lemon Lime Twist 3/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon, Tutti-fruitti Washi Tape
Other: Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack, Tear & Tape, Stampin’ Dimensionals

On the CASE Notes

(your step-by-step guide)

This card’s pretty easy-peasy! Let’s get to it!

  1. Score your card base at 4 1/4″. Fold and burnish the edge with a bone folder.
  2. Adhere the 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ Daffodil Delight Cardstock panel to the card base.
  3. Randomly stamp the lemon rind image in Daffodil Delight on the 5″ x 3 1/4″ Whisper White Cardstock. Stamp two extra lemons on a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock.
  4. Stamp the lemon centers – stamp off once in Daffodil Delight to get a lighter shade of yellow.
  5. Punch out the two lemons from the scrap piece.
  1. Stamp the sentiment in Lemon Lime Twist ink on the strip of Whisper White Cardstock. Use the Stamp-a-ma-Jig for precision alignment.
  2. Adhere ribbon to the lemons panel using Tear & Tape. Adhere the tape to the ribbon, then adhere ribbon to cardstock.
  3. Adhere the sentiment to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  4. Use the lemons panel and a pencil to draw in some light lines so you know where to put the washi tape.
  5. Adhere the washi tape to the card base.
  1. Adhere three sequins and the punched lemon wedges (popped up on Mini Dimensionals).
  2. Adhere finished lemon panel to card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

How Hard Was It to Crack this CASE?

Difficulty Level: 1 out of 5 – This is such a cute card with a lot of WOW – without all the fuss! It’s totally straight-forward (except that maybe it should have been notecard sized). Having the coordinating punch and self adhesive sequins made this card super easy! I also love that you could easily swap out the sentiment and use the card for all sorts of occasions.

Have you sleuthed through the catalog lately? Perhaps to recreate a project you just love?

It was clear to me that the base card color was not the same as the cardstock used for the sentiment. What shade of brown could that be?

On the CASE: Sure Do Love You

Welcome to 2018! Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it!

Today’s On the CASE file is all about making a sweet for your sweet! I was instantly drawn to this amazing sample, and was thrilled to discover that it was pretty easy to make too! Honestly, it’s the Painted with Love Specialty DSP that adds all the wow to this lovely design. I love that even though it’s “specialty” it has patterns on the back sides, just like regular DSP. But, really, who wants to cover up all that amazing gold foil?!

Ann is CASE-ing out another Occasions Catalog favorite – Petal Palette. How do we know it’s a favorite? We’ve had the catalog since November! And, we’ve been able to order products since then too!! Can you believe we’ve even been playing with Sale-a-Bration items? If you feel left out, you can fix that – just get the Best Deal Ever and you’ll get to see and purchase products early too!

On to the details for this week’s CASE!

Stamps and Paper and Inks … Oh, My!

Stamps: Sure Do Love You (bundle available with dies)
Paper: Thick Whisper White Cardstock (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″), Powder Pink Cardstock (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″), Powder Pink Cardstock (3 3/4″ x 5″), Whisper White Cardstock (2 1/2″ x 3″), Painted With Love Specialty DSP
Inks: Powder Pink, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry
Accessories: Painted Love Gold Vinyl Stickers, Love Mini Tinsel Trim Combo
Other: Big Shot, Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies (part of the bundle with the stamp set), Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies.

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 the 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ Powder Pink panel to the card base.
  3. Stamp the small heart shapes in Powder Pink on the 3 3/4″ x 5″ Powder Pink CS panel.
  4. Adhere the stamped Powder Pink panel to the card base.
  5. Stamp the sentiment on Whisper White. Ink just the top of the stamp with Rich Razzleberry. Then, ink the middle (and bottom) with Melon Mambo. Finally, ink the bottom with Rich Razzleberry again. It’s ok that there’s Melon mambo on the bottom of the stamp as it will blend into the Razzleberry ink pad. Huff on the stamp if necessary to reactivate the ink, then stamp! Voila – a 2-tone sentiment!
  6. Diecut the sentiment with the heart from the Lots to Love Box Framelits, and two hearts in the Specialty DSP with two hearts from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits collection.
  1. Adhere the DSP hearts to the card base as shown.
  2. Add a glue dot to the center of the back of the sentiment. Arrange the Tinsel Trim as shown.
  3. Squinch the tinsel in the center and adhere to the glue dot. No knots or bows necessary!!
  1. Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment. Be sure to add one to the center to help keep the trim adhered.
  2. Adhere the sentiment to the card base.
  3. Add small vinyl heart stickers to card base as shown.

How Hard Was It to Crack this CASE?

Difficulty Level: 2 out of 5 – Not a lot of nit-picky steps, and lots of WOW from that DSP made this design pretty quick to accomplish! You could even make up a batch of these to hand out to lots of Valentines – or, just one for your special someone!

On the CASE: Color Theory (Colorful Seasons)

Welcome to our last On the CASE file for 2017! This year’s file cabinet is full to bursting, but we have two more files (one each) for this week…

Now that the holidays are in full swing, I think both Ann and I were hoping to get our hands on some simpler projects without any unexpected twists and turns. Fortunately for me, I succeeded in picking just the right CASE file. I hope Ann did too!

We’re both back in the Annual Catalog for this week’s investigations. It’s easy to neglect this epic gem of a resource so we thought it was our duty to point out some great projects there before we dive into the Occasions Catalog in January.

I decided to deconstruct the winter-themed card from the Color Theory (Colorful Seasons stamp set) Suite. I did have to pull out my detective’s magnifying glass to figure out a few details, but I had the CASE cracked in short order. Let’s check it out!

Stamps and Paper and Inks … Oh, My!

Stamps: Colorful Seasons
Paper: Thick Whisper White Cardstock (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″), Color Theory DSP – Dapper Denim (4″ x 5 1/2″), Dapper Denim CS, (3/4″ x 5 1/2″), Strip of Color Theory DSP, Scraps of Dapper Denim, Marina Mist & Soft Sky cardstocks
Inks: Dapper Denim
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter, 3/8″ Metallic Edge Ribbon (silver)
Other: Big Shot, Seasonal Layers Thinlits dies, Triple Banner Punch

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. Cut a 3/4″ strip from the lightest blue shade on the Color Theory DSP – you can use either pattern shown.
  3. Stamp snowflakes in Dapper Denim. Stamp off to achieve a lighter color on a few of the snowflakes.
  4. Punch a flag end and stamp the sentiment on the Color Theory DSP strip.
  5. Diecut snowflakes as shown in Dapper Denim, Marina Mist and Soft Sky cardstocks.
  1. Apply some light sponging of Dapper Denim ink to the snowflakes.
  2. Zig zag some Fine Tip Glue lightly on the snowflakes, then sprinkle with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter.
  3. Tap off the glitter and allow snowflakes to dry.
  1. Adhere Dapper Denim CS strip to the bottom of the card base. Trim to length.
  2. Adhere stamped Color Theory DSP panel to card base. There should be a 1/4″ strip of Dapper Denim CS showing at the bottom.
  3. Adhere the ribbon to the back of the sentiment banner with Tear & Tape.
  1. Adhere sentiment to card base with Tear & Tape.
  2. Adhere snowflakes to card base with Fine Tip Glue or Tombow Multipurpose Glue.
  3. Add two small blue Glitter Enamel Dots.

How Hard Was It to Crack this CASE?

Difficulty Level: 2 (maybe a 1) out of 5 – This design came together really easy! Can I call it a “1”? Probably not because there is die-cutting and some detail with the glitter application and stamping-off of the snowflake stamped images. BUT, with that said, this is about as easy as a “2” can get! I was thrilled to have found a very straight-forward design sample in the catalog that wasn’t a “Quick & Easy” labeled design. The only trick was noticing the Dazzling Diamonds glitter and the sponging on the snowflakes. BUT, you could easily leave both steps out and have an equally beautiful and impressive design.

On the CASE: Coffee Café

Have you sleuthed through the catalog lately? Perhaps to recreate a project you just love? I felt like a real detective for this week’s On the CASE – I’ll tell you why…

I stared, and stared, and compared cardstock for my CASE file this week. I was truly perplexed!! It was clear to me that the base card color was not the same as the cardstock used for the sentiment. What shade of brown could that be? Soft Suede? Too dark. Sahara Sand? Too gray. There was also a mysterious texture/pattern to the paper. What could it be?! At that moment, I was hoping that Ann was having an easier time with her CASE file!

Then – I saw it! Look close at the picture below and check out the crease at the top of the card. It’s not perfectly scored! There’s some cracking going on there. Something you would never see in a Stampin’ Up! catalog sample! Then, it dawned on me!! It was CARDBOARD!! No matter how you might try to score it, cardboard generally cracks like that. So, I hauled out my stash of cardboard to find just the right piece. (I have a LOT of cardboard!)

I did use a Thick Whisper White card base as I like to have a nice, smooth surface for writing on – but, the cardboard worked great! So, let’s put this CASE together!

Stamps and Paper and Inks … Oh, My!

Stamps: Coffee Café
Paper: Thick Whisper White Cardstock (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″), Cardboard (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″), Crumb Cake Cardstock (2″ x 3″),  Coffee Break DSP: Coffee pot/cup pattern (3″ x 4 1/2″), cup ring pattern (2 1/4″ x 3 1/2″), bean tree pattern (1 1/2″ x 3 3/4″), heart pattern (1 x 3 1/2), and 2 coffee cups.
Inks: Early Espresso
Accessories: Whisper White Classic Weave Ribbon, Linen Thread, Corrugated Elements
Other: Big Shot, Coffee Cups Framelits Dies

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. Stamp the sentiment on the 2″ piece of Crumb Cake. Make a small mark at the bottom center. Then cut from either side to create the flag end. (I tried the Triple Banner Punch, but it was too severe of an angle).
  3. Use two small pieces (approx 3 inches each) of the Whisper White Classic Weave Ribbon and create two zig-zags as shown. Placing a glue dot at each bend will keep the zig-zag shape. (I didn’t have the Classic Weave Ribbon, so I used Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon)
  1. Adhere the ribbon pieces to the back of the coffee cup/pot DSP panel as shown.
  2. Assemble the card base:
    • Adhere the piece of cardboard to the card base.
    • Crinkle the edges of the coffee cup/pot DSP panel. Adhere.
    • Crinkle the coffee ring DSP panel. Adhere
    • Cut a shallow flag end on the coffee plant DSP. Adhere.
    • Tear the ends off the heart DSP. Adhere.
    • Adhere the sentiment!
  1. Fussy cut or use the Coffee Cups Framelits to cut out two coffee cups.
  2. Create a bow with two 10″ pieces of Linen Twine.
  3. Adhere the bow with a glue dot.
  4. Adhere the corrugated heart.
  5. Adhere the coffee cups, popping the top one up with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

How Hard Was It to Crack this CASE?

Difficulty Level: 2 out of 5 – Once I figured out the cardboard trick, the rest was just about eyeballing the measurements, 2 seconds of stamping and some quick die-cutting. Layers always make for a lush-looking design, but really, with our coordinating DSP – it couldn’t be easier! This card can be whipped up faster than a Pumpkin Spice Latte at your favorite coffee bar!

On the CASE: Merry Café

We’re in full-on holiday mode! Can you believe that Thanksgiving is next week? Ann and I have two more CASEes for you today, just in time for your last minute holiday card needs.

Ann and I spent the weekend together at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Live event in Salt Lake City. So, we thought we’d spend a few minutes coordinating our CASE files. It was so fun to have my CASE partner live and in-person to decide which CASEs we’d take on for this week!

As we were paging through the Holiday Catalog, we discovered a “sleeper” design that became my CASE for this week. I really thought the Merry Café samples were relegated to fall and Halloween – but, if you look on the next page, there’s a holiday design too! Yippee!!

Stamps and Paper and Inks … Oh, My!

Stamps: Merry Café
Paper: Thick Whisper White Cardstock (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″), Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (5″ x 3 3/4″), Quilted Christmas DSP (4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″), Whisper White CS (4″ x 4″), small pieces of Basic Black, Real Red & Lemon Lime Twist
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Real Red, Lemon Lime Twist
Accessories: Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Quilted Christmas Ribbon
Other: Big Shot, Coffee Cup Framelits Dies

On the CASE Notes

(your step-by-step guide)

BACKGROUND

  1. Score your card base at 4 1/4″. Fold and burnish the edge with a bone folder.
  2. After cutting the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper to size, use your Stampin’ Trimmer to cut the inside out (no use wasting all that great paper!)
  3. Adhere the DSP to the Glimmer Paper with Tear & Tape
  4. Add the ribbon and tie in a bow with long tails. I prefer to use two pieces so I don’t use more ribbon than I need!

COFFEE

  1. Stamp two coffee cup images in Memento Tuxedo Black. Use the center cup ring framelit to measure and mark the outline with a pencil.
  2. Stamp the cup embellishments as shown, using the pencil lines as a guide.
  3. Mark the cup rings on the Real Red and Lemon Lime Twist CS to help stamp the sentiment images.
  4. I tried stamping the whole sentiment at once, but they ended up too far apart. Instead, stamp the sentiment components separately, starting with the bottom. Use the pencil marks to align the curves.
  5. Diecut all of the coffee cup pieces.

ASSEMBLE

  1. Assemble the coffee cups. Affix them to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals!
  2. Add rhinestones to the bottom of the Cup of Cheer cup.

 

How Hard Was It to Crack this CASE?

Difficulty Level: 2 out of 5 – The most difficult part was determining the size of the Glimmer Paper and DSP – perhaps I still could have gone a bit smaller… Overall, this was a quick card with not a lot of surprises. It would be easy to batch up a few, or a few dozen of these in no time!
