Two Posts in one!

Despite the best of intentions, sometimes things just get away from me.  I've just returned from a week in San Diego for work.  I was all prepared with my cards and pictures for my Tuesday and Friday blog post while I was away.  Well, almost all prepared - I had the cards made and the pictures taken.  Next time, I need to write the blog posts before I go away.  As usual my week of meetings and  catching up with colleagues from around the world (so much fun!) got in the way.  I did post last Tuesday, but you'll notice that Friday's instalment of Can You Case It is missing in action!

Today, I'm posting a double whammy!

First, Can you CASE it Friday (a little late), features a card from Page 36 of the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalogue.

I love the new Year of Cheer Suite of products with all of the lovely metallics and foils.

Here's my CASE of the card
I stayed pretty true to the card from the catalogue although added a few stamped snowflakes on the JOY banner.  I love the new Champagne Foil Sheets in this suite of products - it's a perfect blend between silver and gold!


Product List
Now, on to my regular Tuesday post :)

I'm continuing with my series of Birthday card - still have a few more to show you for my September and October family and friend birthdays.

Here's the card I made for my brother-in-law.  I love Garden Green, Pool Party and Early Espresso together and apparently so does Stampin' Up! as the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper includes the same colours.

For this card, I covered the Designer Series Paper with a layer of Vellum Cardstock and adhered it at the top only with 2 Glue Dots.  The Happy Birthday is cut using the Happy Birthday Thinlet die in both Pool Party and Early Espresso.  I carefully used Snail to glue the two pieces together.  Here's a tip for you - to prevent the Snail showing in the small places - lay your piece down on the Silicone mat and add Snail.  When you pull your piece off the mat, the excess Snail stays behind!

More Birthday Cards!

As I mentioned in a previous post, I have lots of family and friends with birthdays in September and October.  Here's a birthday card I made for my husband's birthday.  He has some high expectations for birthday cards - can't just be an ordinary card, I have to make it a fancy fold card and I have to beat the card I made last year.  It gets harder and harder.

This year I decided to make a never ending card which I've never made.  I found a tutorial online which was great but the size turned out to be 8x8".  It's fine for giving in person, but I wouldn't want to have to mail it!


I used a bunch of different SU! products on this card.

Here's some more pictures of the card



This card was definitely fun to make.  Next time I'll try to make it smaller so that I can send it to friends by mail!

Can you CASE it Friday - Hearts Come Home

It's time for another card CASE'd (Copy and Share Everything) from the Stampin' Up! catalogue.  This time I CASE'd a card from the Holiday Catalogue using the Hearts Come Home stamp set.  This is such a simple stamp set - it reminds me of some of the cards I remember from my childhood.  You can use the stamp set alone, or really pop up the card using the coordinating Hometown Greetings Edgelits.

The card I made is a simple card using only the stamps from the set.  Check it out.

First the card I CASE'd.

Now, here's my card.


I changed the size of the card and used different ribbon and punch.  Pretty close though.
