Welcome to the NC Demo Blog Hop for July. You might have come from Tracie's blog. Great projects! Be sure to check out all of the posts on the hop. NC has some very talented stampers.
Our mission today is a lesson in CASEing. As a stamper, we all do it. We have Facebook, Pinterest, Goggle, our catalog, and lots more as great places to see lots of wonderful samples of cards. Sometimes we just wonder why we should reinvent the wheel. Just give credit where credit is due. Our mission is to find a card at one of these places and copy it exactly, or as close as possible. Then we recreate the card in our own way. Let's get started!
You can find this card on page 101 of the 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. There are so many samples in this catalog! If you don't have one, you need one! Just let me know.
The name of this stamp set is Wildly Happy. This was so much fun to make! I love how it turned out. It's prettier in person. I'll go into more detail with the next card. Let me say I stamped the elephants in Memento Black and colored them with the Light Gray Granite Blend and the Color Lifter. The saying is in Crushed Curry. The base is Pool Party. The wood look paper is from the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper. Use the Stitched Nested Labels to cut the shapes. The ribbon is the White Baker's Twine and the Crushed Curry Crinkled Seam Binding.
For my own project, I chose to use the sketch of the card. I used the Dino Days stamp set.
The card base is Pretty Peacock that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4. Stamp over this layer in Pretty Peacock. The saying is in Dino Days. You really only need to stamp around the edges.
The Dinoroar Designer Series Paper was used to make the background using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. I used the next to smallest one. I cut a layer of Pretty Peacock that is 3 1/2 x 4 3/4. Add the cut outs to this layer. I started with one end (right) and made sure that the labels were straight. Some will hang off. Cut it all off at the end. Then I worked from the inside of the card and went out toward the edges. It may be that you can use a part that hangs off somewhere else on the card. No need to waste! Add the layer to the card front.
For the label I used the 2nd largest label from the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. Cut this from Whisper White. Stamp the dinosaur in Lovely Lipstick and the plates down his back in Pretty Peacock. The saying, from Dino Days, is also in Pretty Peacock.
Here are the cards side by side. They are so different and yet the same! It's so interesting to see what can be made using the same layout of a card. The possibilities are endless!
Next up is Tina. I know you don't want to miss her projects.
