Cased Card from Stampin' Success, Card #2

So, if you read my post from the 19th you already know what a "cased" card is and what Stampin' Success is. If you click on the cased card it will take you to that  post.

This card is 3" x 6" (finished) and uses the Fabulous 4 Stamp Set and the Sweet Dreams Designer Series Paper (dsp for short). I know you're thinking, isn't that paper for "babies"? Since that's what the name implies.......well not for this card. Take a look.

My card is on the right, the left side is the card from Stampin' Success. I pretty much kept this one the same. Same stamp set, same package of Designer Series Paper, but.........I just used different pieces from the same package of paper and used Hello Honey Ink instead of the Lost Lagoon ink. Oh, I used the Gold Baker's Twine instead of Silver Baker's Twine.
I cut each strip, 3/4" and laid them at an angle on a piece of Whisper White, 2 2/4" x 5 3/4' and cut off the long pieces with my paper cutter. Make sure you add your Gold Baker's Twine BEFORE you adhere to the Sahara Sand base. The sentiment was really easy to stamp at the top.

So how did I do for this one? Why don't you "case" a card and comment below. How did you do on your "case"? Email me with photos, I might put them on my blog (with your permission of course!). Cindee@pacbell.net. Heck there might even be some "blog candy".

Here is what I used for my card:

Decorative Masks, 4 Different Cards

I'm going to show you a different way to use your Decorative Masks using your markers.
I decided that I would make a different card for each of the Decorative Masks.

Here is all 4 cards.

1. Star Mask using the Pictogram Punches Stamp Set and the Stars Framelits. Island Indigo and Coastal Cabana for the card base.


2. Stripes Mask using the Perfect Blend Stamp Set. Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding card bases.
3. Dots Mask Using Big on You and the Balloon Bash Stamp Sets. Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloup and Basic Black card bases.


4. Hearts Mask using the Hello Life Stamp Set, Hearts Border Punch and the hearts from the Mini Treat Bag. Whisper White and Strawberry Slush card base.

You may have noticed another pattern here........I used all the In Colors that will be retiring soon, and they all have the Itty Bitty Accents Epoxy Stickers on them.

For all the masks I traced each of the hearts, dots, stripes or stars then scribbled inside of each shape. Tip: Make sure you scribble all in the same direction for each shape. Otherwise it looks funny........

Now you can check out my video! I'll show you how I made the Stars Card.




Here is a list of the items I used to make all of the cards above:

Cased Cards From Stampin' Success

Every other month we (Demonstrators) get a magazine that is just for us from Stampin' Up!. Inside each magazine we learn new techniques, samples to case, recognition, and more. What is "Cased"? Copy and Share everything.
I have not done this in a long time. So I challenged myself to "case" something from Stampin' Success. I've got 2 samples, one today and one tomorrow, to share with you. 

The card from Stampin' Success is on the right. My card is on the left. I used the same colors, but a different stamp set and made a few other changes, but the card has basically the same elements.  Do you think I pulled it off?

 I used Mother's Love for the stamp set. Changed the ribbon on the side to the White Jute Ribbon, and used the Painted Blooms Cotton Twine for the top of the tag.
 The Ornate Tag is attached with dimensionals.

I don't know why I waited so long to get this stamp set. It is one of my most favorite sets now. I hope it carries over into the new catalog. This is a two step stamp. Stamp the image and then stamp the color for the flowers and leaves. Since the flowers and leaves are on the same stamp, I used my markers to color the stamps with Calypso Coral and Wild Wasabi. The sentiment is from Painted Blooms. I used the large block, I to stamp both the flower image and the sentiment at once, then went back and added the color. This really was a 10 minute card.

Top 2 In Sales, Chalkboard Sign


I've seen these sign cards all over Pinterest and thought this is the perfect card to celebrate the Top 2 in Sales for my team Cincraft Stampers.

Kellie is 1st
Carol 2nd

Kellie and Carol each got one of these cards and a package of Cut and Ready Card Bases. Great job ladies!

The cards are really pretty simple. Start with a Crumb Cake base of 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2". These cards remind me of the signs you see before you go into a store. Maybe they have the specials listed, or a Come In on them.
See how I did the card front? Easy peasy!

The Chalkboard Paper is 2 3/4" x 3 1/4", the Crisp Cantaloupe (or Strawberry Slush) is cut at, 3" x 3 1/2". I embossed the words and flowers with White Craft Ink and White Embossing Powder. I wasn't going to emboss it and then decided to.  Then I went back and smudged some white ink. Its hard to tell in the photo. Wanted it to look like a real chalkboard.

The flowers are from the Artisan Embellishment Kit, (which is not available to order right now).

 This one is Strawberry Slush .

Then I loved how the others turned out, so I made a couple more, but changed them up just a bit.
For this one I used a Calypso Coral mat and flowers. For the Flowers I used the Petite Petals and Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack (used the small flower), and added a Pearl in the middle that is colored with the Bermuda Bay Blendabilities. I added some Linen Thread at the top. I love the Because You Care Hostess stamp set, (in the Occasions Catalog).


And here is a Island Indigo version. Same as above.

What are You Working On?

I've asked a couple of my customers to share the projects they are working on? I also asked them if I can share them on my blog. They bothl said YES! So here they are:

These cute candy holders, and baskets are from Sandy Maddux. Sandy makes things for the nurses and residents at her Sister-in-law's Nursing Home. She is also a farmer along with her husband.


These Easter Baskets are also from Sandy.


And this card is from Antonietta Perez. She tells me that she LOVES her new stamps, and using her Blendabilities.



Thanks Ladies for sending these photos to me and allowing me to post your projects on my blog today! Great Projects!

Have You Been Afraid to Cut This Paper?

I was! It only took me 4 months......Its just so pretty by itself. Then I saw Patty Bennett's post. I knew I could do it! If you take 3/4" off the top and 3/4" off the bottom, you can cut the paper at 4" x 5 1/4" and get 6 card fronts. And since you get 2 of every pattern, I made 12 cards in no time at all! Now I used a bunch of different stamps for the sentiment, but really you don't have to do that. I wanted all of my cards to be thank you cards. These would make great Birthday cards too.




So get this dsp out and cut it up! These make such beautiful cards with just a few supplies.  Again, you don't need this many stamps, pick just one and use it on all of the cards.

FREE Shipping Ends Today!

Have you placed your order yet? Think of it this way, you are saving 10% on your order total. You only have to pay the tax.


This is the final card for my card class this month. You know, you just can't go wrong with the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper and From the Garden Bundle (stamp set and matching Framelits). I saw this idea at leadership. Instead of using the "garden pick" like a pick, fold the pick and wrap around your ribbon. A whole new way to use this stamp set and framelits. I used a glue dot to glue the pick end to the bigger part of the pick. Make sense?? The bow is also part of the framelits, but, I did cut out the flower......no framelits. It only takes a couple of seconds to cut out.

I love how the Hello Honey ribbon goes so well with the Blackberry Bliss cardstock. You can't tell in the photo, but I stamped that little flower in Blackberry Bliss all over the top of the card. Its really there, I promise......


Butterfly Thinlits Update





You've heard, its on a slow boat from China....Well the Thinlits were on that slow boat. The latest update is they are on the dock, just not unloaded yet.
