Amazing Mother

This is a CASE from a leadership swap.  Once again I do not know who to credit as the info was not attached.  I LOVE the simplicity of this card.  There is nothing fancy, you can see everything except maybe the fact that the You're Amazing label is popped up with Dimensionals.  It uses Baja Breeze which is a retiring color so get your order in before its gone.  This will be my Mother's Day card this year.  I think it says it all :)

Butterflies in Poetry

I am coming to the end of my stack of Leadership swaps that I wanted to CASE.  I think this might be the last one.  Sadly I cant tell you who I CASEd this from because the swap had no name with it.  :(  As convention draws near, a note to anyone who participates in Swaps:  Please include your name and even blog if you have one on the back of all your swaps, I want to give credit where credit is due!  I would also love to check out more of your work!

As Mother's day is approaching, I had some fun with this one.  I purchased the Print Poetry DS Paper Pack and LOVE it!!!  I used it for my cute butterflies (also LOVING the Bitty Butterfly Punch!).  The bottom butterfly is attached with a Dimensional and the bitty is attached with a Glue Dot.  Be sure to bend up the wings for a 3D effect.  I picked the saying as just a generic but Stampin' Up! has so many great sayings that can be used.    It is REALLY hard to tell in this picture, but if you look closely, I used Pink Pirouette and the swirly stamp from Creative Elements to create a subtle background on the first Whisper White layer.

Stamp Set(s) - Nature's Pace, Creative Elements
Card Stock - Print Poetry DS Paper Pack, Primrose Petals, Very Vanilla
Ink - Primrose Petals, Pink Pirouette
Accessories - Bitty Butterfly Punch, Fancy Butterfly Punch, Primrose Petals Satin Stitched Ribbon, Dimensionals, Basic Pearls, Glue Dots.

Happy Birthday Gift To Me!

I wanted to share the beautiful gifts I got from my Downline Kathy Johnson.  It was such a sweet and thoughtful gift!  The bag held my favorite, TEA!  and fun tea PJs to wear while drinking my tea.  The cookies were for my husband but they were so good I made him share ;)  It was MY birthday after all.

Birthday Butterflies

CASEd from Another Leadership swap :). The original was done by Nancy Walko.  I just love the colors on this!  I made the butterflies "fly" off the card by putting a dimensional in the middle and then bending up the wings for the 3D effect.  The antenna are stamped on the squares.  I popped up the label too.

Card Stock - Whisper White, Basic Black, Sahara Sand, Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight

Victorian Lace

Another idea from a swap from Leadership.  So much talent among my friends!  Sadly my swap card didn't have any contact information so I can't credit who I'm CASEing :(. This is so elegant and vintage...a great card to have on hand for any occasion. I embossed the front half of the card as a base.  To pop up the layer from its same color base, I placed a Dimensional on each corner to adhere it. It is just enough to separate it out.  I tried adding a banner or punch with words but decided I didn't want to take away from the card and the words could go inside :).
