CASE a Designer – Where Creativity Meets C9

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team!! Our challenge this month is Love.

Take a look at my card:

I’m casing Diane Jaquay, take a look at her card:

The colors she used are so pretty, I had to try and copy it. Plus, watercoloring is my favorite type of medium to use.

To create my card:

  1. I used Concord & 9th Butterfly Beauty Stamp Set and Distress Ink Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade to create the multicolor butterflies.
  2. I used the mini ink pads and added the color randomly using both ink pads.
  3. Then I sprayed the stamp with water and stamped the card front.
  4. Once the butterflies dried, I stamped the butterfly body with Clearsnap Colorbox Archival Black Ink.
  5. After that, I die cut the sentiment grateful from Concord & 9th Grateful Leaf Die twice and adhered it to the card front.
  6. Then I stamped the rest of the sentiment using Concord & 9th Lace Leaf Stamp Set using Clearsnap Colorbox Archival Black Ink.

Nice and easy.

I can’t wait to see how you interpret our challenge theme this month.

For this challenge, shape cards were in order.  I love making cards that are odd shaped from time to time. For the sparkle and shine I foiled the sentiment and adhered it to the card front.  Super doper easy!!

These cards could be turned into tags as well.  Just punch a hole and write on the inside of the tag.

What do you think?  Please let know below.

If your looking for So Suzy Stamps post, click here

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a new a2z Scrapbooking Challenge. Its all about Clean and Simple and I have a super fun technique for you: using a die cut to create a CAS card!

Yup, you can use your dies to create CAS cards.  Go figure!!

Take a look at the card I created:

Grateful

Creating this was pretty simple.

  1. Take Hero Arts Paper Layering Large Lotus and die cut the white cardstock panel.
  2. Use Hero Arts Handwritten Grateful and stamp the sentiment in the top left hand corner.
  3. Adhere a scrap piece of watercolor paper with Plus adhesive behind the flower so that color shine through. watercolor panel
  4. Trim 1/2″ of the white cardstock so that the black cardstock base will show on the left side of the card.
  5. Adhere the white card panel on top of the black cardstock using Plus adhesive.
  6. To finish the card off add some Hero Arts Gems in the center of the flower and around the sentiment.

Here is a closer look at that die cut:
