In Any Case...

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

Almost a month after the Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog went live on May 1st and I am still reveling in all of the new products. So many wonderful pieces of art to CASE but I chose the vibrant card on page 69 of the Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog. So this week I am CASEing the vibrant Big Thank You card. Oh and what do I mean by CASE? Copy and Share EVERYTHING!

Want to see this pretty card in the catalog but you don't have a copy of our new catalog? You will receive one free with your first order placed on my website or you can see it here online, or let me know you want one and I will be happy to drop one in the mail to you.

Here is my CASE'd card.

I was so surprised to find this very feminine card was made using the Fresh Air Paper Pack (X7232B). I used a card base from our White Cards and Envelopes Value Pack (X254). I used White Daisy cardstock (1385) for the white daisy oval, the 3" x 3" square and the 1.25" x 5.5" strip (at the top) that was embossed with the Rose Embossing Folder (Z3343). I used 2 different stamp sets.  I used Beautiful Friendship - Scrapbooking (D1779) for the flowers and leaves.  The leaves and stems were stamped with Fern Ink and then I rock and rolled the edges into the New England Ivy Ink.  The veins of the leaves were also stamped with New England Ivy.  The pink blossom is inked with Pixie Ink and then rock and rolled with Raspberry.  The yellow flowers were inked with Canary Ink and then rock and rolled with Saffron Ink.

The oval is cut and stamped with the Fresh Air - Cardmaking Stamp Set/Thin Cuts (Z1486). I masked off the "Smile" and inked and stamped the rest of the pictured stamp.  Then I masked the rest of the stamp and stamped the "Smile" with Raspberry Ink.

Can you see the vellum?  It is 3" x 3".  The Fresh Air patterned paper measures 5.5" x 2.25".  I cut the thin strip from the Documented paper pack and it is 1/2" x 5.5".  I adhered Green Burlap ribbon over the thin strip.

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 June 28th, 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!
