On the CASE: One Big Meaning

Apr 11, 2018 | Gratitude, Thank You & Thanksgiving Cards | 0 comments

About a year ago, Ann and I had this great idea…

We thought it would be fun to take you on a journey through current Stampin’ Up! catalogs where we CASE the projects and give you all the details to recreate them.

It is truly amazing that we’ve been at this for a YEAR already!

I thought that in celebration, it would be fitting to share a thank you card design as a way to say “thanks” for going on this journey with us.

We are both excited to continue to bring you this featured segment on both of our blogs – hopefully for years to come!

For On the CASE with Ann & Nicole (April 2018 - One Big Meaning - 2017-18 Annual Catalog). Featuring, One Big Meaning, Pinewood Planks DTIEF, Hearts & Stars Elements. For more details including tips for CASE-ing this card , click through. #pmretreat #stampinup #thsnks #thankyou #handstamped

How Hard Was It to Crack this CASE?

Difficulty Level: 1 out of 5 – Whew! I needed a quick and simple design this week – and this One Big Meaning card delivered! This was a very straightforward design – perfect to use as a demonstration card, or even as a make-and-take. The little bit of embossing, and the use of the woodcut hearts make the card look much more difficult than you’d think!

We’ll be On the CASE again in 2 weeks! Until then…

AECP: Faux-clipse Thank You Card

Don’t you just love the eclipse technique? How about the faux-clipse?
The eclipse technique is super fun and not too difficult, but I created a riff on the technique, I’m calling a faux-clipse.

On the CASE: Faceted Flower

It’s coming!
Spring is trying so hard to melt all the snow here in East Nebraska – but, it’s coming! Soon, the grass will be growing and little plants will be pushing up from the ground. Why not add to the anticipation with a lovely, but simple, faceted floral design, courtesy of Concord & 9th!

AECP: Build a Garden Scene Card

It’s time to chillax with some coloring!
I took my project over the top today with a combination of Copic and Polychromos pencil coloring. I am not embarassed to say that the elements took me about 90 minutes to color.
