Catty CASED Card

Today's card is one that I CASEd from the 2014-2015 Stampin'Up! catalog. I had been thumbing through it and tagging pages for quite awhile. I just recently heard of a new blog to me, CASE-ing the Catty. Although , I could not enter this card, I hope to be linking my Catty cards there in the future.

There are times when I just need to create and CASE-ing, (copy and share everything) a card makes things so much easier, plus the catalog contains so much inspiration.  

CASED from page 139 in 2014-2015 Annual Catalog

I did us different DSP and card stock colors on my card, but  the base remained the Crumb Cake.

Stamp: Polka-Dot Pieces 
Paper: Crumb Cake, Hello Honey DS Paper Pack, Pool Party,Whisper White

Thanks from the Whole Bunch

Yesterday I decided to play along with Color Throwdown316 using The Deconstructed Sketch#174. Hopefully, my color selection is close enough to those that ctd316 posted. I always seem to second guess myself on color selection. 

I really loved the little bird design that was in the Motley Monsters DSP. I just pulled the colors from the paper, which made things so easy. That's why I love SU, everything coordinates!

I rummage through my stamp stash to find a sentiment that would go with these cute little birds. I came across this older Taylored Expressions stamp set, Fruity Friends.  Although, it was paired with some adorable fruit, I decided it could be used with the flock of birds. What do you think?

Paper: Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry
Decorative Dots EF
Large Scallop 

I'm off to do my Bible reading for the day, start wash and write some emails. I hope you make this a great Thursday and as always, go do something CRAFTY my friends!

Merry, Merry

I haven't created or posted in several days, but today I got into my Studio and got to work!

The Paper Players blog had a great sketch up and it was due soon, so I played along.

The beautiful new Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper which I used my Cricut to cut out the star (O0ps! I meant Snowflake!) It really worked beautifully even with the intricate cuts and at a small size. Needless to say, I was very pleased. I still love my Cricut Expression and I'm planning on using it more often in the coming months.
