So this is another CASE’d card.  I changed up some of the details, but I loved the basic LO of the original, made by Stampin’_Kiwi over at SCS.  I’ve made many cards that have a central panel with four squares, but I liked the pop of having the stamped image right in the middle of them.  I added the detail of the brads and used a wider ribbon.  If you’ll look at the picture to the right, you’ll see that I added a touch of glitter to the flower.  It was a fun card to make!

Stamps: Dreams du Jour  Paper: Whisper White and Rich Razzleberry CS, Cottage Wall DSP  Ink: Basic Black classic ink, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry markers  Accessories: 1/2″ Rich Razzleberry Polka-Dot Grosgrain ribbon, Silver Brads, Stampin’ Dimensionals

it takes a little CASE’ing to get you going…or at least I have found that it is just what I need sometimes to get my creative juices flowing again.  I’ve been in a bit of  a creative slump lately.  Mostly because I have no time to stamp, but also because I am tired even if I do have the time.  I think it’s just the cold, dreary weather.  Anyway….I had to come up with some items for my latest round of SIM, so I turned to trusty old SCS to find some cards that inspired me because I figured if I CASE’d them then they would hopefully inspire my participants as wel as myselfl.  I told them who made each original card and I created a basic sketch of the card for them to keep in My Digital Studio.  This was the first card I made and it was a CASE of Stacey’s (slschaf771) card used the same stamp set but a different and very fabulous color combo.  I hope you like it!

Yup….you guessed it, CAS Christmas CARDINAL 😉  He he he….  Hope that this CAS card inspires you.  I had fun trimming off the edge of the Whisper White CS Top Note die cut piece and then distressing it too.  Can you see that?  Enjoy!!!

Yes, here is another Cardinal card, but it’s a CHRISTMAS Cardinal 😉  I am a University of Kentucky fan through and through.  My blood runs blue in spite of the very Red-White color scheme to this card.  I wanted it to be monochromatic.  Hope you like it!

I am still here.  I’ve been having some dental issues and it has been very stressful.  My little one also got sick, and the husband has been home and then gone again several times since getting back from his deployment.  I finally got to stamp because I had a new round of Stamps in the Mail coming up.  To get inspired, I started with a CASE of a card that I really liked.  I liked using the “A Cardinal Christmas” stamp set and not use either of the images included, but only the sentiment.  Anyway, the card I CASE’d was by card crazy over at SCS.   I will probably space out the other cards I made just because I don’t see much stamping time in my near future.  I hope you like this one!

November SIM-001

 Please e-mail me if you would like to sign up.  The cost is $55 for those not living in Dover, DE and the kits are customizable and include one different stamp set each month for 3 months.  I will e-mail you the rest of the details if you let me know you’re interested.   The stamp set featured for November is “A Cardinal Christmas” on page 38 of the Idea Book & Catalog as seen below.  If you would like to choose a different stamp set, that is possible each month if you have the one we’re using already (or if you don’t celebrate Christmas as that is what the featured set is for in November).
