I CASE’d Myself!

In the Stampin’ UP! world, CASE means to Copy And Share Everything and it’s really just another way of saying we can find inspiration all around us. Sometimes, we just see a project that someone else made and we just love something about it so much it calls us to grab our supplies and make a project too. Maybe it’s the layout, or the colors, or the stamp set, or the way the sentiment is placed, or anything at all.

Well, today I CASE’d myself! Yes, my most popular PIN on Pinterest is a card I made at the beginning of the year for my downline meeting. I needed to make a number of Thank You cards and I wanted to use the Peaceful Moments stamp set which has a nice Thank You. When I grabbed that set, I thought back to that card I made and decided to remake that card, but in a different color.

You can see my original post with that card here, and instructions on how to make it.

It has also become my most popular Pin on Pinterest!

Painted Poppies B&W Birthday

And here is the card I made today:

a simple Thank You Card made with the Peaceful Moments and Painted Poppies stamp set and the Painted Labels and Poppy Moments dies.

Do you see what I did? Same card, different color. I basically kept the card layout the same, except I used Bermuda Bay ink instead of Poppy Parade, and swapped out the sentiment. A couple of Black Rhinestones were added for some bling.

And just like that, I CASE’d myself! Have you ever made a card you liked so much that you CASE’d yourself? I’ve made several cards that I’ve like so much, I made them in several colors. Actually, my last class was a Facebook Live and I made a card in all 5 of the retiring 2018-2020 In Colors. You can watch that class recording on my Facebook page by clicking here.

Congrats to the Newlyweds!

Some of you may have been wondering where I’ve been; I haven’t been posting very much lately.  I’m still here but I’ve had a lot going in my life lately; all good I must say!  The most exciting is that my step-daughter just got married this past weekend!   We are so pleased to welcome Brian into our family, and with him, his 2 sons!

Below is the card I made for the newlyweds.  It is simple and elegant, with a black & white theme and just a bit of silver sparkle thrown for good measure.  The sentiment, from “Loving Thoughts”,  is my wish for them and their marriage; Forever & Always!

Forever & AlwaysI apologize that the color isn’t spot on; I do seem to have trouble photographing white.

This card is made from Whisper White card stock with a layer of Basic Black and another layer of Whisper White.  That skinny little layer of black adds so much don’t you think?

A strip of Basic Black is the perfect backdrop for the Whisper White banner sporting the sentiment “Forever & Always”; my wish for their marriage!  A rosette made from Basic Black DSP (from the Neutrals Designer Paper Stack) is placed atop 2 strips of Silver Shimmer Paper.  The diamond image on the tiny scallop circle is from the new Photopolymer stamp set “Another Thank You” stamped in Silver ink and a little Rhinestone Jewel for added bling.
