CASEing Lynda Jacobson Day for New at SU

2023 hop banner

Welcome to our April NEW AT SU! Blog Hop! We love to share creative ideas from Stampin' Up! with you. I've really been looking forward to today's Blog Hop, because we're doing something completely different: we're CASEing a team member that we have been assigned, and I have been assigned Lynda Jacobson Day, from My Flutterby Moments. If you follow that link, you will not only find Lynda's awesome blog, but you should land right on the page with the cards I want to CASE. I love these cards because of the bright, appealing colours, and the attractive layout. The chemistry lab equipment is fun because you can add different coloured liquid to each, again in bright, appealing colours and you see it because the equipment is all see-through glass!

I decided to use the Brewed for You stamp set for my CASE because it, too, has glass vessels that I can colour liquids of different colours in, and you can see the colours. It also has some cute 'punny' sentiments that would fit on a card front like these. Then I got busy. I decided to use Daffodil Delight for one card base, and Coastal Cabana for the other, both Brights. The Coastal Cabana gives a change from Pumpkin Pie and creates a nice counterpoint to the yellow! Here they are:

  • I started with a bases of Daffodil Delight and Coastal Cabana cardstock measuring 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", and scored at 4 1/4". I stamped a smaller 5 1/4" x 4" piece of the same colour for each with the bubbly foam stamp in the same colour inks all around the outside of this card layer.
  • I adhered these layers to their respective home bases. 
  • I stamped the three different beverage containers twice on Basic White card stock using Memento Jet Black ink, then coloured each one in using Stampin' Blends Combo Packs in Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lolly, Granny Apple Green, Lemon Lime Twist, Melon Mambo, and Flirty Flamingo. I also stamped the two sentiments on left over pieces of Basic White, with Melon Mambo and Coastal Cabana ink.

  • The pieces were all die cut with the coordinating dies, and the sentiment cut with either the Deckled Circles dies or the Tailor Made Tags dies". The pieces were mounted on layers of Basic White, 4" x 3", using dimensionals. The tag had some blue Baker's Twine added and trimmed off after tying a bow. The other sentiment was mounted on a piece of Brights Colours Melon Mambo DSP and added with a mix of dimensionals and Stampin Seal.
  • Another piece of Brights DSP (One in Granny Apple Green and one in Lemon-Lime Twist), cut at 4 1/4" x 4" were added to the back of the the white layers and then added to the card front, centered with dimensionals.
  • I stamped the bubbles in some of the drinks and above them as shown. I added a bow in yellow Baker's Twine to the top of the round sentiment. Finally, I Add some Glossy Dots in blue and yellow!

I hope you enjoyed this project made with the Brewed for You Bundle, and honouring Team Member, Lynda Jacobson Day. I hope I've done her talent justice.
