Case Stamping About You

CASE in Stampin Up! world means:  Copy And Share Everything.  I cased this card from Teneale Williams.


This is a happy and fun card to CASE.  There are a few changes.  First I did not use the Kinda Eclectic Sunburst.  I wish I did but I forgot and I have the stamp set too.  Second I had a mistake with my stamping on the Birthday so I covered it up by stamping on a Lost Lagoon card stock and cut it up with the Bitty Banner Framelits, this covered up my mistake!  :-)  I did not have the stamp set for the balloons so I used the small oval punch on the Designer paper Irresistibly Yours with the stripes.  I was happy with the results, I would be happier with the sunburst but I have to stop pointing out my mistakes!  LOL  Which by the way I use to think was Lots of Love but I now know better.  So hard to keep up sometimes.

Have fun stampin, until next time   :-)

Ok, I couldn't stand it and did another card and stepped it up.  I wanted the star or sunburst on it.  I also popped up the happy using fun foam. (I cut another happy using the framlit to cut the fun foam - It has a peel & stick backing.  I did, however, have to glue with multi liquid glue the card stock to the fun foam)  Easy Peasy.


Here are the two together.  I think they are both great cards, which one do you like?

Hmmm, I can see the one with the sun or starburst working great for a 4th of July card......

Crazy About You


This is a photopolymer stamp set from Stampin Up!  I wanted to show how stamping landscape and portrait can change the look of a card.  I like both.  What do you think?

I did some stamping off and fussy cutting the flower to make three levels and popped it up with dimensionals.  Below is a picture of this card - work in progress:


And here are the pieces ready to assemble:


Don't forget the inside and the envelope!



Which one do you like?  This stamp set has another flower and many different sentiments.  Very versatile.

I feel like a kid again - coloring this afternoon :-)

What a fun and happy card!  I had so much fun coloring this afternoon and feeling like a kid again.  I don't think you ever grow out of coloring, at least I don't.


Here is a picture of all the pieces, all that is left is putting it all together.  I used a striped embossed paper with a white on white design.  The embossed part resists ink so I sponged on three colors:  Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana.  I took a tissue and lightly rubbed off the color that was sitting on top of the embossed portion of the paper.  I used markers of the same colors to color in the C A K E.  Stamped another Celebrate in Memento black on Crushed Curry cardstock and fussy cut it out.  Popped it up with dimensionals. I used the Banners Framelits to cut out the stamped image and a size larger to cut out the Crushed Curry banner.  Glue everything together and popped the diagonal design with dimensionals.


Don't forget the inside of the card and the envelope.  I try to match both with the card front.

A very happy cheerful card  :-)

Happy Easter!


Happy Easter everyone!  I made this carrot pie from our October Paper Pumpkin.  They are triangle boxes filled with treats.  I used the triangle embossing folder and the fringe scissors for the green carrot top.  The bunny is so cute from the stamp 'Happy Easter Bunny'.  I just cut him out and put some dimensional on him.  It looks to me like he is doing a happy dance.

Here is a close up


I hope you all have a Blessed Easter   :-)
