CASE Monday - So Very Much

Hello my stamping friend and happy Monday.
It is time for another Case Monday cards. I saw the idea some time ago and cased it right away for my thank you cards (I use them a lot), but never posted the idea on my blog. What else makes this card special - is that it uses 4 SAB items: 2 stamps, paper and ribbon.

This design will work with any big sentiment stamp too.
How Tos:
  • Whisper white piece: 4 x 5 1/4. Stamp delicate details element on the button of the piece and greeting in the middle
  • Take 1 x 4 piece of inside the line DSP and sponge flowers with sponge dauber same color as you stamped greeting; use pear pizazz for leaves
  • Adhere sponged image to the whisper withe piece. Wrap a ribbon around and add to the 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of card stocked scored at 4 1/4
  • Stamp so much in black on Pear Pizazz scrap, punch out and add with dimensionals to the card
You are Done!
You can sponge bigger piece of the designer paper and than cut it, it will be even faster. Or if you like to color - use the watercolor pencils and blender pen for more precised coloring.
Any color will work. Here is Sweet Sugarplum:
And Peekaboo Peach:
Which color will you pick?
If you do not have any of hose Free supplies - it is still time to earn them with every $50 order. You have just few days to do it. I will send a set of those cards with every order placed in my online store this wee with hostess code: 7FM2Z3QR.
Happy Stamping!

CASE Monday - Special Reason

Happy Monday, my stamping friend.
Time for another CASE card. This time I cased the cards created by amazing Dena Rekow. I absolutely love the simplicity and clean lines of the card she created. I decided to use different colors and add extra layer.

The new 2016-2018 are the colors I choose. Peekaboo Peach is my favorite one:
 Flirty Flamingo:
And Sweet SugarPum:
How Tos:
  • Card front is 5 1/2 " x 8 1/2 " of think whisper white.
  • Whisper White piece is 3 7/8 x 5 1/8". Die cut 2 small flowers on it. Stamp big flower on scrap piece and die cut.
  • In Color card stock is 4 x 5 1/4". Position die cut piece on top, lightly mark the center of flowers. Remove white piece and sponge with dauber. This will add extra color to the flower.
  • Stamp sentiment, leaves, add big flower with dimensinals.
  • I also used wink of stella on small flowers and a big one.
What do you think?

March Blog Hop

Hello my stamping friend and thank you for stopping by. This month Blog Hop theme is Easter. For me - Easter is very special holiday with many traditions. The main one is to go early to church to bless Easter basket. Only after the blessing we can have an Easter breakfast. I always bake Easter bread few day before - and my entire family loves it. We color the eggs to put inside the basket. Other food that is included in the basket are butter, cheese, kielbasa and more. Even so my kids are older now - they still want to have their own basket to bless. This year maybe a little different with my daughter in collage, will see.
This is why for me Easter is very traditional holiday. For this hop I wanted to capture the spirit of our family traditions.
I choose Basket Bunch bundle as it has all needed elements for my basket:)
I used soft colors and little bit of gold foil. This is the card inside:
Here is a little paper basket to match a card. It was created using windows box thinlit:

If you like the projects - leave me a comment. What is your Easter family tradition?

Thank You for looking. For more great ideas - continue to Hop.

Happy Stamping!
