On the CASE: The CASE of the Beautiful Bouquet

On the Case Logo

Welcome back to On the CASE with Ann & Nicole, an endeavor undertaken with my friend and stamping buddy, Nicole Watt of Pixel Maven’s Retreat.  In “case” you missed our maiden post, here is the scoop: Twice a month, on the first and third Wednesdays, we will be CASE-ing a card from one of Stampin’ Up!’s current catalogs. CASE means to Copy and Share with Everyone, and that is exactly what we will be doing. We hope you enjoy the cards we CASE and the free step-by-step tutorials! Let’s get on to today’s CASE!

OTC Beautiful Bouquet

With its bright and cheerful colors, as well as an abundance of white, this card created with the Beautiful Bouquet bundle immediately caught my eye. I loved the flirty, feminine touches, such as the delicate doily, the linen thread bow, and the sparkly enamel dots.

Your Step-by-Step Guide

1. Score the Whisper White Thick cardstock at 5-1/2″ to form the card base.

2.  Run the front of it through the Big Shot with the Polka Dot Basics Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

3.  Use the 3″ (outer dimension) Scalloped Layering Square framelit to create the Pool Party panel. Layer a 2-3/8″ x  2-3/8″ piece of Whisper White cardstock on top of the Pool Party. This can be created with the 2-5/8″ (outer dimension) Layering Square framelit. Cut a pie-shaped wedge from the Delicate Doily, and adhere to the back.

4.  Ink the small flower image in Daffodil Delight, and stamp onto the white panel.  Ink the sentiment in Crumb Cake and stamp into the lower left corner.  Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

5.  Create the stems from Pear Pizzazz cardstock and the stems framelit.  Here’s a Tip: Use the Precision Plate and the Die Brush, and this greenery will “pop” right out of the die.

How Hard Was It to Crack this CASE?

The techniques involved in making today’s card are not difficult at all. I would definitely recommend using the Magnetic Platform in order to hold the framelits in position over the stamped images when you cut them.  Difficulty Level:  3 out of  5, simply because it does take time die cutting all of the flowers.

#SUontheCASE

Nicole and I hope our projects today inspire you to try CASE-ing the catalog too! We’ll be “on the case”, looking for the hashtag #SUontheCASE on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ & Pinterest).  If we find one of your projects, we’ll share it, like it, repost it – we’ll do it all!

Now head on over to Nicole, the Pixel Maven, to see the CASE file she has been working on. You will love it! And remember, if you have any questions about the cards I create or the techniques I use, I am only an email away. Until next time – CASE away!

  6. What a clever concept Ann, to “crack this CASE.” I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen these beautiful cards in the SU catalog and not known exactly the steps to take to achieve the same level of loveliness. Your step by step break down is just what I needed. I will be sure to “stay tuned” to your blog for further detective adventures.
    Keep up the good work Ann.

    Thank you Ann.

  7. Ann I love this card! So crisp and clean! Your colors just POP off the white and the large embossed circles are FAB! Hugs.

  8. I love this card! It’s the reason why I just had to get this bundle…. Top-notch detective work on the CASE! You deserve a commendation! 😉

  9. Wonderful choice for a CASE. It sold me on the stamps/dies! Love the graphics and your detailed photos with the dies and stamps!

  10. This is a really fun post, Ann! I love the concept behind “cracking the CASE!” Especially since I am a forensic photography (by day job!)
