Just in CASE - Watercolor Wings pg 68

Have you ever said I don't mind fixing supper I just never know what to make?  Getting ready for a blog post can sometimes feel like that.  I love stamping and sharing but sometimes I just don't  know what to stamp, that is why I love Thursdays and our Just in CASE series I know what to make.

Today's card is CASEd from page 68 in the 2016-2017 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog. It is almost an exact CASE except I changed the colors.

The cards in the catalog are created by the concept artists at Stampin' Up!  I once said to my husband when I received a card from Stampin' Up! "I wonder what it would be like to get paid to stamp cards all day".  He gave me a puzzled look and said "You have a job like that!" I laughed and said "yes I do don't I  and it's great.  

I never thought my hobby would become my business and career - I do love it and am thankful everyday for the opportunity to share my love of stamping with you.   

I always love to have new members of my team so if you ever thought you might like to stamp for a living don't hesitate to email me - I would love to chat.

Fun Fold Card - Book Fold Stamping Technique

Today's card is using a fun fold called the Book Fold.  I guess because it looks like a book inside when you open it.

This is the inside of the card.  I love the bright colors and the little Lama guy has the most amazing smile.  It might be a little hard to notice the Piñata hanging from the top of the center fold.  

I stamped the cards using my favorite stamp set (right now) called the Birthday Fiesta, Fiesta Time Framelits and Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper. 

Colors (1)

My color palette was Stampin' Up! Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Emerald Envy, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Tempting Turquoise

 

Because it would take to long to write out the directions and often times seeing is best I created a stamping video tutorial showing you how to make this card.

This is the front of the card and what a surprise when they open it up.  While ever birthday card I send is not this many steps, once in a while it is just fun to go all out.  I saw this cute little Piñata idea on pinterest.  Love all the inspiration there is there. 

Now that I think about it I should have made this card into an anniversary card.  Tom and I are celebrating 41 years today!  

Here are the supplies used to create this card.

Best Birds Stamp Set and Coordinating Birds & Blooms Thinlits

Hello Stampers,

It's Border Buddies Saturday Patsy Here!

I know there are lots of sneak peeks for the Holiday Catalog, but we have not had enough time to share all the awesome things from the 2016 Annual Catalog yet!  It is filled with so many amazing stamp sets and coordinating framelits

The Best Birds stamp set and coordinating Birds & Blooms Thinlits is one of the stamp sets featured in our Border Buddies August PDF Tutorial.  Our PDF Tutorial is filled with images, supply list, measurements and instructions to complete 8 different cards.  Four cards using the Best of Birds stamp set and four cards using the Jars of Love stamp set.

Once I started using this set I just didn't want to stop.  I stamped the branch and flowers with Memento Black Tuxedo Ink and water colored with my ink refills and Aqua Painters.  I then cut them out with the Big Shot and Birds & Blooms Thinlits.

Doesn't the bird look great sitting on the branch surrounded by the scallop circle?  The scallop circle is from the Stampin' Up! Layering Circles Framelits.  At first I didn't think I needed these as I have circles - but I LOVE the scallop edge on half of the framelits.

The flower centers are the Stampin' Up! White Perfect Accents and I added two in the lower right hand corner to finish off the card.

Just in CASE Series Flower Patch Stamp Set

It's Thursday and time for our Just in CASE Series (COPY AND SHARE EVERYTHING). 

Today I CASEd the card on page 69 of the 2016-2017 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. 

Just in CASE Stampin' Up!  Flower Patch Stamp Set and Flower Flair Framelits HorizontalThe sample in the catalog used the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set.  Since I don't have the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set, I decided to substitute the Flower Patch Stamp Set in it's place. 

As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator we get a great discount on all our paper crafting supplies and also lots of FREE stuff, so while I have LOTS - I don't have it all, LOL!
