Cased from Ann Schach

Spun from Ann Schach Ann Schach posted a card on pinterest with a very similar design, she is such a talented card maker. So I cased hers and put my own colors and spin on it.

I used a card base of Tangelo twist 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″

next  layer of daffodil yellow 5 1/4″ x 4″

next layer whisper white 5″ x 3 3/4″ ran thru the big shot with the awesome brick embossing folder inked up with crumbcake ink.

Then I used stamps out of the Butterfly Basic stamp set. Took a separate piece of white and did the 3 step stamping of the Watercolor Butterflies using the smaller butterfly, first layer was daffodil delight, second stamp was tangelo twist and third stamp was soft suede. Cut him out sing the butterfly thinlit. Then cut top butterfly out of white using the thinlit in the Watercolor Butterfly thinlits.

Added a tangelo twist mat to my whisper white sentiment. Added candy dots and gold thread.

Please shop in the catalog listed at the top of the page to find all these wonderful stamps, inks and papers. If you need help please e mail me!

First attempt at a teacup

Use a 9″ x 3 1/2″ wide and score every inch across and score 1  1/4″ to 1 1/2″ from bottom to make bottom of cup. The cup is octagon shaped so attach one side to the other side. Then when you are ready to fold up bottom, you will place one tab and the tab opposite glue to it and go opposite all the way around cup. For handle use two ovals to make a open oval, fold it in half and glue together, cut where the crease fold is to make tabs to glue to cup. Takes a piece of 3″ by 3 1/2″ paper.  I then glued onto a doily that has a 3 inch circle glued to the bottom.

Choose Happiness

Choose Happinesss with Brick wall

Use a smokey slate gray card base

2nd layer is a 5 ¼” x 4 white piece embossed. I used the brick wall and ran ink pad over it before running thru big shot.

Using the 6th biggest (lots of label die) I cut out the label, stamped leaves from Choose Happiness set in mint macron, sponged the edges. I then stamped the flower from the same set in Melon Mambo. Fussy cut it out and popped on label. Using the silver string accent it.

Stamped the frame from Awesomely Artistic set on mint macron with the word friend inside it. Cut it out and placed the silver string behind it.

Next I stamped the dragonfly out of the same set. Fussy cut him out. And stamped his antenna on card after finding placement . Once assembled place wink of stella on his wings

Sprinkles of life and Awesomely Artistic

Dawn Griffith said she cased a card from Julie Davidson, and I cased mine from Dawn. On her blog post today she has a video on how to cut the pieces for the card and how to score where.

The dragonfly card is close to her design, I used some dazzling details instead of pearls. and on the ice cream I didn’t use the cone from Sprinkles of Life and I used the new in color papers.

These cards are so cute and the possibilities are endless. Please after watching Dawn’s video if you have any questions I will be glad to help.

Wild About Flowers

Brick 1

Another card using this beautiful stamp set and the brick embossing folder. I stamped 3 images on a 1 3/4″ squares . Then I backed them with a 2″ square of calypso coral. I took a 4″ x 5 1/4″ white cardstock and ran it thru the brick emboss folder after inking it up with sahara sand to make the brick layer. Punch butterflies with the punches and you have a beautiful card to give.

New sneak peek


You need to see the new greeting set that is coming up. Made this set of cards using the 2104 in color papers and the deco labels.

Good time playing in my scrap room today while it was cool and rainy outside. It is hard for me to believe how fast the days go by being retired. I have tried very hard to make sure that I go walk a dedicated mile everyday and that has been going well.

Enjoy  your day!

Peek a boo card

closed cardopen to first pg  opened all the way Top view

This is a Peek -A-Boo card , I found a tutorial on Split Coast by Norma Lee and followed her wonderful directions to make this fun card.

The card front sees all the way to the back. When you open the card you see the verse and the thinking of you. open all the way and you see the image in the back. Kind of like 2 z folds.

When you are stuck for ideas Pinterest and Splitcoaster’s is the place to  go check out.
