Two for One Friday

I'm a little behind this week!  I'm travelling for work and I didn't seem to get my post done on Tuesday, so today it will be two posts in one!  I'm in Regina, SK this week.  Compared to where I live on the West Coast, it's cold here -18 degrees Celsius, but thankfully it is warmer this week than last week when it was -40 degrees!  BRRR!  I'm not made for this kind of weather!


Can you CASE it Friday!

Today's Can you CASE it Friday instalment features the Bird Banter stamp set.  I haven't have had a chance to play with this set yet, but it is so cute.  Today I CASE'd (Copy and Share Everything) from page 43 of the Occasions Catalogue.  

This is a cute little gift bag, but I used the idea to make a card.  Check it out.

Can You CASE it Friday - Sweet Little Something

Today I'm sharing a card I CASE'd (Copy and Share Everything) from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue.  This card uses one of my favourite stamp sets from this catalogue - Sweet Little Something.  I was lucky enough to win this stamp set at the Stampin' Up! OnStage event in Salt Lake City in November.  I was SO excited!

Here's the card I CASE'd from page 40 of the Occasions Catalogue.


I love this cute little card.  The bunny is so realistic!

Here's my card.

I changed it up a little bit as I didn't have the Designer Series Paper or Craft Stampin' Ink for the background flowers.  That's what CASE'ing is all about!  You can copy exactly as is or use as an inspiration.

This little bunny is so adorable!  I just love how the image emerges before your eyes and I always have a WOW moment no matter what colour I stamp it in.

Here's a tip on how to stamp the 3 images to get the best results:

  1. Stamp the most detailed stamp in the darkest ink first.  For this bunny I used Early Espresso.
  2. Stamp the next most detailed stamp in a middle ink using the nose and arms to line up.  For  this bunny I used Crumb Cake.
  3. Stamp the solid stamp last lining up the head, arms and legs.  For this bunny I used Sahara Sand.

True Gentleman

Have you noticed the True Gentleman Suite in the Occasions catalogue?  I love the colours used in the Designer Series Paper.  There are obvious choices for masculine cards, but there are others that can be used for any kind of card.  The colours are amazing - Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Night of Navy, Tranquil Did and Very Vanilla.

Here's a card I made using the Designer Series Paper and fabulous Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon.
