More CASEd cards!

A few more CASE'd cards to share with you!

The first is a flowerpot card, but my flowerpot when drastically wrong somewhere along the line.  It's supposed to be open at the top and the flowers are connected to the card and it slots into the pot.  Not so much.  Mine was a disaster (twice, if we're being honest) and I ended up giving up and just gluing the whole thing to a card base.  Still pretty cute, if I do say so!  Check out the tutorial here - maybe you can figure it out! 

This "Mr. & Mrs." wedding card is really simple and pretty - a pretty similar knock-off of the original with a different banner, embossing folder, and ribbon.  

These next two cards might be two of my favourites!  They're an adorable take on the classic baby ring stacker and made entirely with scraps.  There are FOUR babies due in our family in 2012, so I'll be going through a few of these!  The original was done by Lisa Lara but unfortunately, I'm unable to link to it - I found it on Pinterest but the source link doesn't work.  Hate it when that happens!

The last one is a CASE from an unknown source; again, I found it on Pinterest and the source link was broken.  I wish I could give credit where credit is due, because this card is GREAT!  

Supplies as follows:  

Flower pot:  Cardstock by Recollections (Grey, Black) and Stampin' Up (Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Lucky Limeade.)  Patterned Paper by October Afternoon.  Flower Die from Sizzix.  Embossing folder (on the leaves) from Sizzix.  Brads from Recollections.  Scallop border punch from Stampin' Up.

Mr. and Mrs.:  All supplies from Stampin' Up.  Colours used are Very Vanilla (Cardstock) and Crumb Cake (Ink and Ribbon.)

Ring Stackers:  Cardstock from Stampin' Up (Crumb Cake and Early Espresso.)  Patterned paper from various sources.  Woodgrain stamp from Hero Arts.  Bakers Twine from The Twinery.  Stamp, rub-on, and tag punch from Stampin' Up.

S(ick):  Patterned paper from unknown source.  Border punch by Fiskars.  All other supplies from Stampin' Up (colours used are Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, and Pool Party.)  

See you next time!

Autumn Sweater Yarn Wreath

I set out to create a spring-y yarn wreath for our front door... I love this wreath, but totally failed at the "spring-y" part!  It reminds me of a cosy autumn sweater.

Hope you're enjoying your weekend!

I'm short on inspiration and time these days, so most of my crafting has been CASEing!  I've found some great creations online and went at them myself. 

This first card was cased from THIS PROJECT by Mary.  Hers is actually a bookmark, but mine is glued flat and just a card.  I changed a number of elements, obviously, but I love the final look!  

This second card was inspired by Jen Del Muro's project seen HERE.  I used the five current Stampin' Up In Colours on this; I love that they all go together so well! 

And the last card is an original layout, but I cased that little owl from Heather Summers' blog.  She has a great tutorial on how to make them!

Supplies list:

"Always" card:  All supplies from Stampin' Up.  Cardstock (Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake).   Polka-dot scalloped ribbon in Basic Black.  Neutrals buttons.  "Always" stamp from Always Elegant set.  Flower die from Sizzix/Stampin' Up.  Basic Black brad.  Modern Label punch.  First Edition DSP.

"A Million and One Thanks" card:  Cardstock from Bazzil (textured white and black) and Stampin' Up (Whisper White.)  Coloured cardstock from the 2011-2013 In-Colours by Stampin' Up.  Buttons from Michael's.  Embossing folder from Sizzix, used with the Cuttlebug.  Stamp from Technique Tuesday.  Embossed hearts from Sizzix/Stampin' Up.

"Happy Birthday" card:  Cardstock from Stampin' Up (Not Quite Navy, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Basic Black.)  Patterned Paper from "Play" by American Crafts.  Twine (Cherry Cobbler) from Stampin' Up.  Sentiment from Stampin' Up ("Afterthoughts" set.)  Various punches from Stampin' Up (Circles, Word Window, Heart, Itty Bitty.)  

Thanks for coming by - see you next time!
