Card Inspiration

Hello stampers! I am stuck CASE'ing Renee's work over at Stamping for Sanity Blog. I feel like her style is very close to my own. When life gets busy and you don't feel like coming up with ideas on your own, you can always depend on the internet to get you through!! I pretty much copied her card exactly but changed the colors up a bit. I was going to use the colors from the Colour Q Challenge but just couldn't put those colors all together for this card.

Thanks to all of the bloggers out there that give us beautiful inspiration!

Stamps: All Holidays
CS: kraft, whisper white, cameo coral, sage shadow, sweet pea DSP
Ink: soft suede
Other: 2 step bird punch, nestabilities dies, embossing folder, eyelet border punch

Card of the day.....or week.....or month.....

Hello again stampers! 2 days in a row for posts, don't get used to this! This is another card that I CASE'D over the weekend from here on Inking Idaho. Take a look at her blog, she had some adorable projects. I, like her, was wanting to use up some of my Sweet Pea Designer paper because I have so much of it left. I tend to shy away from the orange colors, I guess because I hate to wear orange. This was a nice change! I also loved the idea of using the oval punches to make a flower. Enjoy!

The Details:
Stamps - simple friendship
CS: sweet pea DSP, whisper white, choc chip
Ink: choc chip
Other: large and small oval punches, circle punch, scallop border punch, old olive ribbon

Graduation Cards

Hello Stampers! I know, I know, I haven't posted anything in over a month! I just haven't been in the stamping mood. I got my mojo back yesterday and was very productive. After preparing all of the projects for stamp club next Friday, I realized that someone had requested that I do a graduation card. I forgot all about it until all of the cardstock was already cut out for 14 people! So....I made some today to give you all some ideas. Since I didn't technically have a "graduation" set, I made do using a hodge podge of stamps from various sets. I was inspired by this card here by Amy Celona. It's hard to come up with a card that will fit all of the various school colors in the area and be for a boy or a girl so I made some for each. For the inside of the card, I just used my word program to print sentiments. Enjoy!
