CASE Study 187.2 CASE Study 187.2

This is my third week as Guest Designer at CASE Study and it’s been a blast!

Can you guess how I was inspired by this photo:

I went to my stamp table with machine stitching vellum and die cut sentiments on the brain…

I chose Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper and after a bunch of trying to piece different things together, I settled on stitching the same size (3-1/4 x 4-1/2) Very Vanilla and Vellum Cardstock together.

I added it to the card base with dimensionals.

Then, I added a piece of Adhesive Sheet on another Very Vanilla piece and die cut it with the Palm Die Cut.  I peeled of the backing which left a completely sticky palm…perfect for dipping in dazzling diamonds glitter!

There is some blue in this DSP pack, so I pulled that in with the “Celebrate” die cut.  A few scattered pearls finished off the card.

Supplies (All SU unless otherwise noted):

  • Cardstock:  Very Vanilla, Island Indigo, Pistachio Pudding
  • Other:  Celebrate Dies (Penny Black), Adhesive Sheet, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper, Palm Die (Hero Arts)

 

I hope you are having a great week!  I’ve been busy getting back to normal after having my girls on flip flopped breaks in March…the littles were out the first three weeks, then Anna was out the last week.

The littles then had their company dance recital this weekend and that’s always an entire weekend, family affair!  This recital brought us to an interesting and unexpected activity last night…ear piercing for the youngest Pooler girl!

The girls have company earrings and since Eva doesn’t have pierced ears yet, she has to wear clip-ons. They are not too comfy and cause hurty-ears.  After the recital I promised her she wouldn’t have to wear them again.

We went to dance last night and they told us that she will have to wear company earrings again for the Mary Poppins recital at the beginning of June.

Daddy has a “TEN” year old rule for ear piercing.

The other two girls got theirs done in September of the year they turned 10 (anna is in Oct. and alana is in Dec)…so September was the month Eva was going to join the “pierced ears” club.  uh-oh!   I PROMISED!

So, what was a mother to do?  I set out to convince Daddy to let her get those babies PIERCED!  It didn’t take much to convince this softie.

We decided to surprise her, so we met Randall out for dinner…the first 10 mins. of the car ride over there, Eva was squawking about getting her ears pierced…I told her we will see.

We ate dinner and Eva was talking about what a great night it was. I said, “Is there anything else that could make your night better?”
Guess what she said?
A giant grin on her face…’A lifesaver!??”
I busted out laughing!

Next she said, “getting my ears pierced??!!!”
She didn’t believe it for a few minutes.

We’ve got a very happy little girl on our hands!
