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!
