Quick Open Sea

     Hello!  Today's card was inspired - eh hem - CASE'd from Bonnie Klass' blog, Stamping with Klass (here).  I mean really, what's not to love about her card?  It uses The Open Sea (my favorite set) it's incredibly quick and simple to make and there are no tools or accessories needed!  Bonus: it's a great masculine card!
Stamps: The Open Sea, Woodgrain
Ink: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Paper: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso

Lovely As a Tree

     Hello!  Today's card was inspired by Stampin' Up's own Shelli Gardner (here)!  For those of you who may not know, Shelli is the co-founder of Stampin' Up! and when I found her card via Pintrest I couldn't resist CASEing her.  I absolutely {loved} everything about her card and since I'm always in need of a masculine birthday card I thought this would be perfect (there are a ton of men in my family!).
     If you haven't purchased the Lovely As a Tree stamp set I highly recommend doing so!  It makes a wonderful Christmas stamp set AND it's the perfect masculine set. 

Stamps: Lovely As a Tree, Woodgrain
Ink: Crumb Cake, StazOn Black
Paper: Crumb Cake, Basic Black, First Edition DSP
Tools & Accessories: Naturals Designer buttons, linen thread, Word Window punch

A Banner Birthday

       Hello!  Today's card is another one that I found while searching Pintrest (here).  I loved everything about Kasia's card and decided to change very little.  
      A quick change of the sentiment and this would make a wonderful Valentine's Day card!

Stamps: Bring on the Cake
Paper: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, First Edition DSP
Ink: StazOn Black
Tools & Accessories: Small hear punch, baker's twine, rhinestone basic jewel

Did you know Stampin’ Up! has been around for 25 years?!  As part of their 25-year anniversary celebration, they’re bringing back some of your favorite stamp images from the last quarter century and combining them into 12 sets, which will release-one set per month-during 2013. Even better, along with some great classic images, each "Best Of" set will also include a never-before-seen image!
Best of Birthdays, 132929, $14.95

Some things to remember:
  All Best Of stamp sets will include 3-5 images, including a never-before seen image, and will be priced at $14.95.
  While Stampin’ Up! is releasing just one Best Of stamp set per month (with a new theme each month), all of the Best Of sets will be available until March 31, 2014.
  A new flyer will be released every month for each new Best Of set (see below).
  All Best Of stamp sets are available in clear-mount only

While Stampin’ Up! is releasing just one Best Of stamp set per month, all of the Best Of sets will be available until March 31, 2014.

Wish Big

     Hello!  This card was inspired by a creation I found Amanda Jones' blog via Pintrest (here).  I was looking for a quick and simple birthday card and this immediately caught my eye.  
     I loved everything about Amanda's card and decided to change only the sentiment.  This would be great for a guy or a girl!

Stamps: Word Play
Paper: First Edition DSP, Whisper White, Crumb Cake
Ink: StazOn Black
Tools & Accessories: Merry Minis punches, baker's twine

Winter Birthday

     Hello!  Today's card was inspired by a card in the Nov/Dec issue of Stampin' Success (a publication for SU! demos).  You probably already know that Stampin' Up's Glimmer Paper is a hassle-free way to include glitter in your projects - without the mess of traditional glitter.  But you may not know that you can color the silver Glimmer Paper to match any project!
     Simply use a sponge dauber to apply your favorite Classic Stampin' Ink.  If you're in  a hurry you can speed up the drying process by setting the color with a heat tool.  
     I didn't order the Snow Flurry Bigz die from the Holiday catalog this past season and instead used what I had in my craft room, retired Snowflakes Sizzlits.  

Stamps: Bring on the Cake
Ink: Lucky Limeade, Primrose Petals
Paper: Whisper White, silver Glimmer Paper
Tools & Accessories: Big Shot, Snowflakes Sizzlits (retired), Northern Flurry embossing folder, brad
