"Casing" a Favorite Demonstrator

This card is a "CASEd" card (Copy And Share Everything) from a fellow demonstrator from Germany, Jenni Pauli.  Her work is amazing and mine doesn't really live up to hers, but it was fun to try.  I think I would like it better had I not textured the card stock -- the texture grabbed the ink a bit too much.


I applied ink to the Whisper White Card Stock that I had embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder.  Using a Stampin Sponge I applied the following inks with a light touch Mink Macaroon, Golden Glitz Delicata, Daffodil Delight and I think a touch of Crumb Cake.  Don't miss the opportunity to get the silver Delicata ink, the gold and copper just sold out!


The leaf is cut from the Tropical dies from Mink Macaroon Card Stock.  I stamped the greeting from Rooted in Nature in Memento Tuxedo Black on Whisper White Card Stock and cut it using one of the dies from the Ornate Frames Dies. The frames are in the Holiday Catalog and are only available through January 2 -- you don't want to miss them.

I pierced holes in the label with the Take Your Pick Tool and threaded Linen Thread through.  The label is mounted with Dimensionals

I finished it off adding some sequins from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment and the Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins.  Again, using that great Take Your Pick Tool to pick up and place the sequins.

It's a Spooktacular Halloween!

The Monster Bash Suite was so much fun to use to create Halloween cards and treat holders!  I used nearly every part of that suite to create my projects.


The Coffin Treat Box was covered with some Monster Bash Designer Series Paper and embellished with a fussy cut image from the DSP.  It was tied up with the Basic Black 3/8" Scalloped Edge Ribbon.

Using more of the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper it was a simple trick to make a fast bag topper for a cellophane bag that is filled with treats.  I added a skull & crossbones Enamel Shape to fancy it up.  I'm pretty sure my grandsons will notice that detail...okay, maybe not.

The cards came together quickly.  Both cards have a Basic Black card base, a Gray Granite "headstone" cut from the Ornate Frames Dies, it's stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and a greeting from the Spooktacular Bash Stamp Set.  The "headstone" rests on another die from the Ornate Frames Dies, cut from Basic Black Card Stock, and is popped off the background with Stampin' Dimensionals.   I love how that little detail looks. I added a black Enamel Shape crow to each, using a mini Black Dimensional.


I used the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks to create the backgrounds.  One card uses Gorgeous Grape Ink and Card Stock, the other is Pumpkin Pie Ink and Card Stock.


Finished them both off by splattering some Frost White Shimmer Paint tinted with Gray Granite Ink Refill.

Wrapping a Baker's Box

Sometimes you need more than a card and Stampin' Up! has some great gift packaging.  The Baker's Box is one of my favorites.  It's food safe, has a window at the top and is a great size - 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" x 2 1/8".  I was asked to do a display for a recent Stampin' Up! local Demo event and I knew that it would be my first project.



 I "build" my bouquet on a circle of card stock, separate from the Baker's Box.  I made some paper flowers using Whisper White Card Stock and the Magnolia Memory Dies and the Perennial Flower Punch. I used a sponge dauber and Daffodil Delight ink to accent the centers of the flowers. Two of the flowers are large scallop circle from the Layering Circles Dies.  I hand cut it into a spiral and rolled  them into a flower, hot glue holds them together.  I used the white Flax Ribbon and fashioned a ribbon flower.  


The leaves use the Magnolia Memory Dies and are cut from Mossy Meadow Card Stock. The white sprigs were cut using the Detailed Peacock Dies.  The flower centers were cut from Magnolia Memory Dies and I added a Gold Faceted Gem to the centers.  I added some loops of White Baker's Twine.  I used hot glue to attach all of the elements.


I wrapped a length of Flax ribbon around the box, leaving some long tails.  The bouquet is hot glued to that ribbon so you can slide the whole thing off.  I put some of our local Wildflour Bakery cookies it it.

I hope the friend I gave this to enjoys it as much I enjoyed making it!

Over the years I've used this style to wrap a lot of presents.  I used whatever I find, strips of linen or silk, burlap, or wide ribbon.  One of my favorites are rolled flowers from book pages.  Stampin' Up! used to sell a die and it is a favorite of mine!  Here are a couple examples.

Getting a "Round" to a Birthday Card

Today I have very simple card layout to share with you.  It was not what I intended when I sat down to create, but I think that is the fun of creativity!  I think this layout is very versatile! 


Here are the details

Basic Black card stock base 4 1/4"x11" scored in half the long way
Copper Foil Sheets 4 1/8"x 5 3/8" and a strip 1/2"x4 1/8"
Designer Series Paper 4"x 5 1/4" (I used the retired DSP "Urban Underground")
Basic Black circle die cut using Stitched Shapes
Very Vanilla circle die cut using Stitched Shapes
Copper Foil Sheets scallop circle die cut using Layering Circles Dies
Stamped the greeting (from the long retired Paper Pumpkin "Hey Man")


Can you tell that I added a little Wink of Stella shimmer to the "happy"?


I used Stampin' Dimenstionals to pop the scallop/greeting off the black circle.  And, because I am cheap smart I use the following technique to get the most out of my copper foil.  By cutting out the center of the layer I can get the scallop circle and the 1/2" strip with some left over!


While I used retired paper for this project I think the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper would be a good alternative.


I added the card to this gift bag -- I used the Cheers Dies , a sneak peek of something that will be available to you beginning September 4.


Here is another card I made substituting Real Red Card Stock for the Copper Foil.  For this one I used    Well Said for the greeting
