Have you heard copy and share everything when it comes to card making? If you have, have you wondered what exactly it means for you in your own crafting? If I answered stress-free, guilt-free, quick-and-easy-gorgeous designs, how would that grab you?
Let’s dive in a bit deeper!
I’m starting a new feature I’m going to switch up occasionally for Keep It Simple Sundays I’m calling Case-it Cards. These will be designs I’ve seen in a Stampin’ Up! publication (a catalogue, online, in an email) or ones I’ve made myself I’m going to change out to show you some different options.
Not only will you see beautiful designs, they’ll be ones that are quick to recreate at home. And if I didn’t tell you I had CASE’d them, I’ll bet you wouldn’t even know! 😉
Let’s take a closer look at how you can copy and share everything too.
Copy and Share Everything – What Does It Mean?
So here’s my design. A sweet little card made with elements from the Bird Ballad suite of products. I’m loving this Bird Ballad DSP. Look how different this piece is I used on my chocolate treat holder.
And this was the inspiration card.
It’s on page 90 of the Annual Catalogue and I bet you may not even have noticed it before. I changed out quite a few elements to make it mine based on the supplies I have in my stash.
What’s Great about CASE-ing?
- don’t need to have exactly the same items as the sample has (eg. I didn’t have the laser cut cards, but I did have a doily, I didn’t have the Bird Ballad Trinkets, but I did have a Leaves Trinkets. Get it?)
- have total control over colours so it suits YOUR personality! (eg. I wasn’t fussy about the bird feet design or the feathers, but I liked the single bird and the flowers so ran with that for my card)
- can add MORE or LESS of everything depending on your own crafting style.
Plus, there’s SOOOOO many samples out there!
Cuttin’ It Up!
- Petal Pink cardstock – 3″ x 6″, scored at 3″, scrap about 1/2″ x 2″ (you will cut this down after die cutting)
- Bird Ballad DSP – 3″ x 3″ (smaller pattern), bird and flower from other patterns fussy cut
- Vellum cardstock – 2 3/4″ x 2 3/4″
- Daffodil Delight – scrap 5/8″ x 2 1/4″
Let’s Make It!
1.Glue Bird Ballad DSP to front of folded card. Glue vellum square to front centre. TIP: Put adhesive in centre just to left so it will be hidden by the bird and flowers.
2.Stamp greeting in black ink onto scrap of Daffodil Delight. Cut right end into a banner. Run scrap of Petal Pink through die cutting machine with the Stitched Nested dies single strip (see the pic below with the arrow)
3. Glue strip to bottom of greeting and adhere to front of card.
4.Cut out a small sprig of flowers from one piece of patterned paper and one bird from another design. TIP: Use smaller scissors like Paper Snips to make your cutting easier. BIGGER TIP: Move your PAPER around your scissors rather than your scissors around your paper.
5. Glue flowers to left of greeting, then adhere bird on top. Add glue dots to back of leaf trinket and adhere over top of bird’s feet. Make a small bow with linen thread and attach with glue dot.
What are You Going to CASE?
Now you know how easy it is to Copy and Share Everything (aka CASE), why not give it a try at home? Grab your catalogue and take a peek at one of those pages you have dogeared or tagged with a sticky note. Then see which of your supplies will work to make it your own.
Or if you want to make this exact design, feel free to CASE it! Here are all my supplies.Supply List
Hope You Liked It!
I hope you’re going to love this new Case-it Cards! feature. I’m not sure what my next CASE is going to be, but I’ll be sure to point out all the things I flipped around so you can see my thinking and design process.
Keep checking back to see! But now you know copy and share everything – what does it mean, let’s see what you can CASE too!
