Thanks for the CASE, Tiffany!


I love all my very talented stamping friends! One of the great things about being a SU! demonstrator is the wonderful people we get to know and my friend Tiffany is one of my best buds. She is not only a terrific stamper and scrapper, she is an awesome person too!

Last week, Tiffany posted a gorgeous card on her blog at this post here. I loved her card so much, and I wanted to do my own version of it. So that's what I'm sharing with you all today.

I love, love the vintage, antiqued look and lots of times, this carries over into my stamping. As you can see, I've applied that design scheme a bit to my version of this card. I used Naturals White Cardstock to create my card base and it is an unusual size, 5" x 5" square. Taking my Big Shot and the new Scalloped Square Die, I cut a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock and then, ran it thru my Big Shot again with the Perfect Details Texture Plate. It was adhered to the folded card base and then I distressed it by using my Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write Marker and the Color Spritzer Tool. I then sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink.

The medallion was stamped with the new Circle Circus stamp set and I layered the circles with Stampin' Dimensionals. These too were sponged with Soft Suede ink.

For my greeting, I used the Thank You Kindly stamp set and stamped it with Chocolate Chip ink on more Naturals White cardstock. To make the little banner, I used my 1 1/4" Square Punch and just notched the end in a little flag. It was sponged as well and then I used my fingers to shape it so it's 'waving' across the card front.

The finishing touch is the Chocolate Chip Double Stitched Grosgrain ribbon and of course, I stamped a little circle on the inside of the card for a little decoration there.

I hope you like this today - be sure to leave a comment and then check out Tiffany's post and leave her some love too!
