Vintage Leaves Catalog CASE Video

CASE = Create And Share Everything.

This is what Stampin ‘Up! and the Stamping Community is all about. We love to share what we do and to have others copy our work is honor. One important aspect about the cards we CASE is to give credit to the original designer. That is why a few times you will notice that I mention I copied a certain card from someone or was inspired by someone’s card and made a few changes. Giving credit is proper etiquette. So with that in mind I will share the original card I CASEd from page 125 of the Annual Catalog.

They’re both very similar but by just changing the card base and embossing the stamped leaf you get a different effect. 20161004_174256_wm.jpg

Thoughtful Branches Sponge Card

20160802_205101_wm
I recently shared this card in a previous video introducing the Thoughtful Branches Limited Bundle, but now I have a video showing you how it’s done! This is my first video! It took me a while to get one done because I had to learn how to edit and not drag on too long.

Card Stock:
  • Old Olive cut at 5-1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4-1/4
