In Any Case... with Melinda and Melissa

Join us twice a month as we CASE, “Copy And Selectively Edit”, artwork created by the Art Department of Close To My Heart as showcased in the current Idea Books and our Make It From Your Heart How-To Books.
On the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month, at 8 pm CT, we will direct you towards a piece of art and recreate it using the exact products or others that compliment its initial design. Tips, techniques and assembly directions will be shared in detail to help you recreate them on your own.
As you reproduce the items we have shared, post them on social media using the hashtag #ctmhinanycase. We will randomly search that hashtag and reward those who CASE our items. Winners will be announced on our blogs so be sure to follow us!


In Any Case with ... Melinda

and Melissa

Good evening! I hope you had a great day. This week I decided to step away from the catalogs and spotlight our Make It From Your Heart, Volume 4 How-to book. Volume 4 shows 24 different card patterns and includes cutting instructions and artwork examples. I am CASEing card pattern #23 - the gorgeous card on page 51. Oh and what do I mean by CASE? Copy and Share EVERYTHING!

I used two different stamp sets on this card and one of the stamp sets also contains thin cuts. And do you know what is even better? The Falling for You - Scrapbooking Set (Z4144) is on Clearance for $9.75. The original retail price is $38.95. What a deal! I also used the mini stamp set, Delicate Flower (M1178) to make my patterned paper. I stamped using Memento Black Tuxedo Ink (Z899). The flowers and leaves were stamped onto the light gray paper from the Basics Paper Fundamentals.

I recorded a Facebook Live showing the techniques I used in making this card.

I apologize that it is recorded sideways but you can see what I am doing and how I watercolor the flower and assemble the card as well.

Here are the additional supplies I used for this card.

Now please head on over to my Partner in CASEing, Melissa Robinson, and check out how to make her cute little cards. I know I am going to head over there!

Tune in again, on August 16th, for the next episode and be sure to CASE one/all of the artwork we highlight and tag it  #ctmhinanycase on social media. We'll come looking for you and you may be a prize winner!
