Masculine in Mind!

This is a card I created Sunday in preparation for the Birthday-Stamp-A-Stack I offered. It turned out okay. It's hard to create masculine themed cards I must admit.

Petal Pizzaz!

Now this stamp set is awesome and I truly feel it will be around for quite some time. All of these cards were CASED. Can't help it, they are, IMO, just such great layouts and colors. Although, the Mellow Moss and Riding Hood Red was my color combinaiton idea.

Pocket Silhouettes!

I hope this set stays around for a long while because I think it's very versatile.

Stampin Success!

For you SU Demonstrators, I hope you got yours this month. As usual, it's full of useful ideas and it also included the Occasions Mini Catalog which will be in effect April 1. It's loaded and I know already I want Forest Friends! Anway, here is a card I just had to make immediately upon reviewing the magazine. Of course it's CASED because I liked it so much.

Brian's Valentine Card

So this is the card I gave Brian for Valentine's Day. Yep, it's cased...sort of. I did actually take various stamps from my SU sets to make the heart though. And, it actually does look like one I made last year. I liked it a lot and so did he. He gave me a beautiful bouquet of flowers that he picked up from the local florist, which is a nice contribution to the local community. Of course, the card said Happy Anti-Valentine's Day cause he knows I'm just not that into the celebration that comes along with it. But he did take me to the seafood restaurant Friday night, which IMO, was better than going out Saturday night with every other human from the community. Not that I don't like my community folks, just not so many at one time is all I'm saying. He also gave me the coolest little Valentine's Day present; which I'll post a picture of tomorrow. It's a Wonder Woman metal bracelet. Too cool since I've said for years my goal is to be Wonder Woman and sometimes I feel like I am. Now I'll be even more invincible since I have the bracelet which for sure makes me that much closer to being Wonder Woman right?

Rustic Rooster

When I first saw this stamp set from Stampin Up I just knew I had to have it. I really don't know why though as I'm just not as creative with stamps like this as I am with simpler ones. However, here is my first attempt at making a card with it and without casing. I think I really will need to find some to case as this just doesn't do much for me. But it lends some interest to me, so here it is.

CD Case Project!

Even though I have a huge amount of blank paper CD Cases they just aren't quite like the one I've made here. I actually think I like the one I made better. In this post you'll see the front side (decorated) and the back side of the CD Case (slightly decorated) as well as the back opened. I am thinking about doing this at Ming's workshop this month. So easy and yet so nice, especially for picture card CD's you may share.

Not quite cased!

On this card I started out to CASE, but changed it up a bit as I didn't have all it took to duplicate the one I'd seen. But I actually like mine a lot as well. Everything but the sentiment is Stampin Up.

A serious case of casing!

As a Stampin Up Demonstrator I am privy to many card ideas from sister demonstrators. As well as from the Stampin Up Idea Book and Catalog. So, as time for creating is precious and minimal, I have cased a lot lately. A lot of times I'll change up the colors, but I will definitely copy the lay out. Here are a few of my casings!
