You've Got This for CASE-ing Tuesday


Today's card was inspired by a card from page 37 the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog:

image from Stampin' Up!

I made a few changes on my card to make it my own.
  • I used the retiring You've Got This stamp set.
  • I changed the color combination to Blackberry Bliss and Smokey Slate.
  • The original card used a Memories & More card for the main image.  I instead used Whisper White cardstock.  
  • I centered the Whisper White cardstock instead of offsetting it.
  • Instead of the the thread bow on the sentiment, I used a small circle of Silver Baker's Twine behind the sentiment.
The You've Got This stamp set is on the retiring list.  If it is on your wish list, you need to order now! It will no longer be available after May 31st.

Clean & Simple Cake Soiree with Stylized Birthday



This is the card I made for last week's sketch at Clean & Simple Stamping.  I used the lined stamps from the Cake Soiree stamp set for the background stamping.  The focal sentiment was stamped with the Stylized Birthday stamp.  I love the font on this stamp.  Unfortunately it will be retiring on May 31st, so be sure to order yours today!

For my color combination I reached for colors from the new Brights Collections: Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, and Melon Mambo.  Using colors from the same color collection is an easy way to match up the colors.


Thanks for stopping by my blog today!   I hope you have been inspired to stamp something today!  Please take a moment to leave me a comment and let me know you were here.  And let me know if you have any questions you may have about this card or any Stampin' Up! products.

Sepia Lift Me Up Sheltering Tree


I made this card for this month's Inspiration Challenge for the Creative Crew.  For this challenge we were given a couple of pictures to use as inspiration for our cards.



For my card, I focused on the second photo and tried to create a sepia-styled card.  I combined stamps from the Lit My Up and Sheltering Tree stamp sets.  The ground was stamped with Crumb Cake.  For the rest of the images I stamped with Soft Suede, stamping off one or two times to get different shades.  When I was done stamping I added some sponging to add to the vintage look.

In case you missed it, here are other cards I created for this month's Creative Crew. (Clicking on the photos will take you to the corresponding blog post for more details).

Balloon Celebration Color Combo


I have another Creative Crew challenge card to share with you today.  I made this card for a color challenge.  

I used the Stamparatus to line up the balloon stamps.  It makes stamping rows so easy! The rows of balloons are Daffodil Delight/Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler (stamped off)/Cherry Cobbler (full strength), Pool Party/Bahama Breeze, and Wild Wasabi/Wild Wasabi (double stamped).
