When I saw this card on splitcoaststampers.com, I knew I had to CASE it. I stamped the flower from Love & Sympathy three times and embossed it with white embossing powder. I made a few other changes – no ribbon, so I split a piece of card stock and stamped it. This is a neat trick that comes in handy when you want something that looks like ribbon but you don’t have the right color. Using the bone folder, break down the fibers until you can peel the layers of the card stock apart. The result is a fuzzy side that looks great on a card. Other stamp sets: Gorgeous Grunge and Happy Watercolor. Accessories: punches and gel pen.


This card was inspired by Michelerey.

This stamp set is simple but makes the most beautiful cards. Here’s the second one for this challenge:


This is what we call CAS – clean and simple. The only layers are the white and Primrose Petals. I used the Happy Watercolor set from the Occasions Catalog (still available; contact me to order) for the background colors and stamped the image by inking the flower separately from the leaves. I didn’t have the right markers so I carefully inked the stamp with the corner of the inkpads. This one was inspired by googoobaby (thanks!).

This month I’m posting cards for what I thought was last quarter’s challenge. I found out that promotion from my SU upline is over! I somehow managed to win a free stamp set every quarter for the whole challenge period, so no more freebies, but I am going to continue doing this just for the fun of it. It really is a challenge to use one stamp set for five cards, although I must admit CASEing most of them. Here’s the first one, using the Love & Sympathy set:


I embossed the Whisper White card stock with the Stripes folder, cut out the main piece with the Labels thinlits, sponged it and popped it up. Instead of brads, I made paper brads by punching out little circles and gluing them together. They are flatter for mailing and I’m all about being able to put a card in an envelope so it’s flat enough so I don’t have to pay extra postage! This card is a complete and total CASE (copy and share everything) by Nancy Littrell.
