A Happy Birthday CASE

If you were fortunate enough to earn one of this year's SAB Petal Parade stamp sets, then here's a fun and easy card design for you to use. I CASE'd this great card from Ilina Crouse. (Yes, I have been case'ing more than I used to, since I don't have as much time to sit down and design. When you're short on time and you need to make a card, there are some great card designs out there!)

I love celebrating birthdays with fun cards and this one definitely looks happy and festive and doesn't take much time to make.

So glad that you stopped by!!

Polka Dot Anniversary

I'm on a polka dot roll here...this time using a Pool Party polka dot with Real Red accents. This is a simple Anniversary card with a stamped "Happy Anniversary" in a word bubble. The Word Bubbles are a fun way to create stamped embellishments.
The two little hearts represent the sweet couple celebrating their anniversary :-)

Have a great day!!

Polka Dot Bouquet

Today's bright floral bouquet card against a Crumb Cake background was inspired by this lovely card by Barbara. Everything looks great against Crumb of my favorite cardmaking colors!
I used the retiring  Secret Garden SS to create the flowers and the coordinating framelits. Crumb Cake polka dot DSP is from the Fresh Prints DSP stack in the 2014 Occasion Mini catalog.

I hope that you're having a wonderful day!

So Kind CASE

Today I'm sharing a card I case'd by Connie Collins. She created a bold digital chevron background, which I loved, using MDS and a Silhouette cutter. I don't have a cutter, but I do have MDS so I came up with my own chevron background using the MDS photo corner punch. I didn't quite get my punches aligned perfectly, so the points of the chevrons aren't as clean as I'd like, but since I didn't have time to go back and redo, it's good enough.
The retired Flower Fest stamp set is still one of my favorites, especially if I'm in the mood to watercolor.

Thanks for stopping by!
