Stampin' Up! Playing in the Rain ~ Oh Happy Day!


Today's card, featuring Playing in the Rain, is another one CASE'd from the catalog.  This time inspired by the CASE challenge over at Stampin' Up! Only Challenges.  The challenge was to CASE (changing at least three things) one of these cards found on p. 5 of the Sale-a-bration Brochure.  They are all great layouts, and colors, so I will probably be finding inspiration from these cards again at some point in the future!

I chose the bottom left card, isn't that a fun one!?  My Stamp Set of the Week is Playing in the Rain, so my first change was the stamp set.   I don't make many square cards, so my second change was to make an A2 sized card.  (Measurements for my card can be found near the end of this post)

I made several other changes, but one of my favorites was the addition of Brushed Brass Butterflies...my ALL TIME FAVORITE EMBELLISHMENT! 🦋💜

I used Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin' Blends to color the turtle, layering the colors on some places.  

Card Base ~ Balmy Blue Cardstock ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", score at 4-1/4"
Layer 1 ~ Rain or Shine DSP ~ 4" x 5-1/4"
Layer 2 ~ Balmy Blue Cardstock ~ 2-3/4" x 4-1/4" (before die cutting)
Scraps of Basic White Cardstock 
Inside Layer ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4"

Happy Stamping!
