Gallery Gazers CASE #2

Last month I introduced a new blog group that I am a part of; in fact, I'm the one who created the Gallery Gazers blog group. The premise behind the group is friendship, a shared love of stamping, and also a shared admiration for the many amazing creators who post in the SCS Gallery. Once a month, we are each to choose a card/project from the SCS Gallery to CASE. This post is the card I made after being inspired by Barbara's (Bar on SCS) card found HERE.

Obviously any CASE is not a direct copy of the original crafter's work, so I shook things up quite a bit from the card Barbara made. Different colors for the flowers, plus she used a single flower, while I used a flower image with three blooms on it. More layers to my card... and the card base is a color. I also changed the placement of my sentiment, just because my sentiment was a bit too large to look right in Bar's sentiment placement.

I'll admit I struggled with the vellum piece. I had no clue how to adhere it, since usually when using vellum, I adds something on top of it (embellishments, etc) to hold it in place. I even sought some advice from friends. I ended up using Sizzix Sheet Adhesive on the back, which worked, but it tends to give the vellum a milky look, which I don't like.

I am not overly happy with my card, as a whole, but it might be because I absolutely LOVED Barbara's card and I feel like mine falls very VERY short of her beautiful creation.

Oh, and a really funny thing.... this is my second Gallery Gazer card. My first one was on July 29th and can be seen HERE. Honestly I did not remember what card I'd CASE'd or how my card looked until I went to put together this blog post. WOW! There sure is a lot of similarity, isn't there?

I'll have to be more careful next month. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Supplies Used

Stamp Set: Stampin' UP! Blended Seasons stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers (I used my Scan N Cut to cut out the image)

Papers: Recollections Black and 110# White and SU Cameo Coral CS and DP and Vellum from my scrap file

Embellishments: Cloud 9 Rain Dots and Viva Glas Effekt Gel (for the flower centers)


  1. Lovely card. I so have to dig out my flower stamps and stamp more and fancy fold less. heehee

  2. Such beautiful blossoms on this wonderful card, Jeanette!!

  3. Oh Jeanette, card #2 is a beauty - the color palette is pretty and striking! Great card is CASE!

    But I disagree with Susan making less fancy folds! :)

  4. This is quite a change from your usual style Jeanette, but I love it!!
    I use a special tape put out by Scotch specifically for vellum, and it does not show through. Stitching is another option
