NC Blog Hop for October CASE a Card using All New Supplies

Welcome to the NC Blog Hop for October.  I'm so glad you are here.  You may be starting here or maybe I was next on your hop.  Either way, please take the whole hop.  You'll be so glad you did.

Join us blog

First of all, just in case you don't know CASE, it means Copy and Share Everything.  We all do it!  Just remember to share your source.  Today I'm using one of my own cards.  In these times with shipping problems, we are going to run into supplies that just aren't available.  Our hop this month is about exploring options that we can use instead.  Of course the cards won't look the same.  You might even like it better.

This is my first card.  I had a lot of compliments on this one, so I thought it would be a good candidate to change using none of the same supplies.  For details on this card go here.

So here is the CASE.

NC Demo Blog Hop for October  Poinsettia dies  Scalloped Contours dies  Timber EF  Harvest Meadow DSP  Luv 2 Create  Jo Anne Hewins

Both cards do have the same layout and they are both Christmas cards.  They both have Christmas greenery.

First the base for the second card is Soft Suede 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  You'll need a piece of Basic White 4 x 5 1/4.  Add a piece of the designer paper from Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper.  It measures 2 3/4 x 4.  Add a strip of Soft Suede that is 5/8 inches by 4.  Run this layer through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Timber embossing folder.

For the label in the center of the card, I went with the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  I cut the third die from the outside.  I must admit that I used the Christmas to Remember stamps set for this card as well, but I do have a different saying.  I guess I cheated on that one!

For the Christmas greenery to went to the Poinsettia dies.  They are in the annual catalog.  Cut 4 layers of the small, not tiny, flowers in Basic White.  Use a Blending Brush to add a little Soft Suede to the edges.  Curl the petals with a Bone Folder.  Add two flowers a little askew so all the petals show.  You'll end up with 2 flowers.

Cut 4 leaves from Old Olive.  Use a Blending Brush to add some color on the front and on the edges.  

Cut 3 of the stems in Merry Merlot.

Add the flowers in each corner and then the leaves coming out from each side.  Add the stems.  I did cut one of them in half.

Finish with some of the Metallic Pearls in the center of the poinsettias.

So, do you have a favorite?  Let me know.  I think I like them both, but I might be leaning toward the poinsettia.

Next up is Toni.  She is so talented!

I like both cards but I think the original is my favorite. And I don’t think you cheated.


I am with you I think I like the poinsettia one best. I am a little biased though. Love the poinsettia stamp set, which I still have not yet purchased.

Both your cards are beautiful, Jo Anne! I love that you cased your own card. Thank you for sharing!
