Pinterest CASEd Cards

While I love making scrapbook pages, sometimes I just need a change of pace.  Cardmaking provides the perfect opportunity to play and not fret it something doesn't work out just right.  Last week, I was looking for those advantages and also to draw on someone else's creative juices.  So I browsed my Pinterest Cards board and found these two that I wanted to CASE.

The first is from Frilly and Funky blog.  I did lots of layers using different mediums and stencils but with a very similar design in mind.  For my top layer, I used light modeling paste colored with some red shimmer paint.  I was hoping it would end up shimmery but I don't think there was enough of the paint to get that effect.  The flower is stamped with an American Crafts set.  Now that I look at her card again for the link, I wish I had remembered the black shading and the 3D flower.  Oh, well, I'll just have to do this one again sometime.

Next month, I'll be sending a 50th birthday card off in the mail.  This idea came from Cheiron Brandon. This was a good chance to use a bit of Washi as she did.  I added some score lines. I like the dimension achieved here without the bulk, easy for mailing.  It is also a very clean finish for a guy card.  It is nice to have a go-to card for those big birthdays.

I'm going to be using this as inspiration for a scrapbook page with Thickers so stay tuned for that video in  few days.  It will have more on cutting the numbers with the Silhouette.

Pinterest is so wonderful.  I don't have any idea how they make money on it since I've yet to see any ads but I'm just happy it is there.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Great cards! Pinterest is such a wonderful resource but it sure can be a time sucker. Lol!

  2. Love the washi use in the birthday card. I had to pin that one for future inspiration! :)
