Today’s card may look familiar, that’s because it’s a CASE! It was inspired by the card on the cover of the NEW 2022-2023 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog!
MAKE A CASE! “Copy” means “allow yourself to be influenced by” another paper crafter’s project. CASE-ing is a great way to be inspired! Focus on an aspect of a creation (sketch, colors, images) that you absolutely love and use it to spin something of your own.
The cover showcases the Hues of Happiness Suite Collection, which landed on the list of My Favorite Things from the 2022-2023 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. You can see all of My Favorite Things here.
LOVE THIS! What makes this card so simple is that gorgeous Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper! The floral images were cropped with the coordinating Blossoming Happiness Dies. A couple trips through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, (be sure to take advantage of the MAGNETIC CUTTING PLATE to help keep the dies in place) and you have what you need!
STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:
Begin with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base of Basic White Thick card stock.
Adhere a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper to the card base with Stampin’ Seal.
Zip a 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 piece of Basic White card stock through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard or Mini) along with the Blossoming Happiness dies (edge and background).
Adhere to the card as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Use a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard or Mini) to crop the floral and leaf images with the coordinating Blossoming Happiness dies.
Use a Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment (Happiness Abounds Stamp Set) in Early Espresso Classic Ink onto a piece of Basic White card stock.
Trim to 3 1/4 x 1/2, cutting the end at a slant with Paper Snips.
Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Tie a double bow of White 1/4 Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. Adhere as shown with Mini Glue Dots.
POP OF PERSONALITY! Embellish with Gorgeous Grape and Pool Party Glossy Dots.
PERFECT POLISH! Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a 2 1/4 x 5 3/4 piece of Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper to the outside flap of a Basic White Medium Envelope. Trim to size with Paper Snips. You can see my video demonstration with tips on adding designer paper to an envelope flap here.
