With Sympathy

Here is another CASE! This one comes directly from Silke Ledlow's blog. I stumbled across her blog and fell instantly in love with her work, but her card like this stood out. I hope if she ever comes across this card, she appreciates my interpretation and I hope you like it as much as I do! It seems as soon as I made this card knowing I would have to give it away. See one of my BFF's from high school recently lost her twin brother. I figured this card is fitting for her because she loves the color yellow and it is also a cheery card.

Anyway, this card did not take a lot of time to make. The hardest thing for me to make were the flowers. They were a little challenging since this was the first time I attempted to roll the flower using a quilling tool! I love the end result. I hope you do too!

Thinking of You

Hi bloggers! Here is a card I CASEd from Mary Brown. I saw this card on her blog and instantly knew I had to make this card. I copied everything except for three things. First I layered the swiss dots onto plain white cardstock and then I used Rich Razzleberry as one of the alternating colors, and lastly, I used a retired stamp for the sentiment. The Rich Razzleberry flower makes this card pop! The color combo is fabulous and coordinates so well together. Let me know what you think.

Happy Mother's Day

Hi there, hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day. Just wanted to share with you the Mother's day cards I created. I am so proud of these cards, even though the are all CASEs of someone else's cards (Sorry, I am in bed typing this post and I don't have the info of the original creator of the cards). If you are reading this blog and you are the creator of this card, please let me know so I can give you due credit. My mother was the lucky recipient of the first and the second cards. She loved them both. For the last card, I wanted to show you the finished inside as well. More than likely, I will re-make as a birthday card using the same stamp set, Elements of Style. I may change the color scheme though. Leave me a comment letting me know what you think.

Top Note Thank You

Hi there! Here is another card from the sketch challenges Tai, Rose and I participate in each week that I forgot to post. Each week one of us pick a sketch and then we make a card just to keep our mojo going! This card sketch was from about two weeks ago and I no longer have the details of the sketch but I wanted to share my card with you. I saw these colors (purple, olive & white) in a catalog and decided to put those colors together for this sketch. The score lines were added to give the card a little more character and reduce the plain-ness (is that a word?) of the right edge of the card. I think this card is much prettier IRL. Let me know what you think!

Springtime Smiles

Oh, how I love this card? And to think I did not like this pattern paper or the stamp set. What was I thinking? Lets just say they both grew on me!

My friends Tai and Rose do not stamp together as often as we once did and we all miss it. So in a way, we had a virtual stamp weekend. Tai found this great sketch and we each made a card using the sketch. I love this color combo of Baja Breeze, Always Artichoke, and Very Vanilla. Other items used are Springtime Vintage DSP and Easter Blossoms, which both can be found in SU's Occasions mini. Let me know what you think and thanks for looking.

Thanks for Caring

Here is another sketch challenge card for you. This one turned out more beautiful than I expected. I love these colors together with this Springtime Vintage DSP by Stampin'Up. The card stock used are Baja Breeze and Always Artichoke. I thought the flower from the stamp set Just Believe would be too much with the DSP, but after it was put together the card is quite attractive. I hope you find it attractive too. Have a wonderful day and thanks for looking!

Here is another sketch challenge I participated in. These are so much fun because the work is almost done. All you have to do is decide what card stock, pattern paper and stamps you're going to use. Speaking of stamps, I am in love with these MFT Pure Innocence line. Isn't she cute? Have a wonderful day and thanks for looking.
