Stampin' Up Healing Hugs & Lasting Lily Distinctive Stamps

Good Morning Friends,

Have you seen the new distinctive style stamps from Stampin' Up?

Yesterday's facebook live video is  up on Youtube, and a friend suggested that I should keep the "bloopers" in there, so it's in it's full replay glory!

It is so easy to get a "WOW" with just plain stamps using the distinctive line of stamping products.  They do come both in photopolymer and red rubber.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you like the video!

Here is the shopping list if you need any of these products.

Stampin Up By The Bay - Casing Tuesday #184 #CASEingtuesday184

Good Morning Stampers!

What a fun sketch today from our casing Tuesday team of stampers!

This week's card is inspired by my upcoming stamping retreat in Kennebunk Maine.  There is still room if you want to join us for a wonderful beach getaway.  It's very chilly here in New England, but no matter the time of year, being right on the ocean, right beside my besties, simply makes me happy!

The base of this card features Gray Granite, and the Gingham Gala DSP in Balmy Blue.  The strip across the middle is Basic Gray and the two top layers are whisper white!  All the stamping was done in gray granite.  If you were looking to remake this card, here are some potential measurements you could try! (right on the sketch)! Got to love that!

Want to play along?  We have a dedicated facebook group for everyone to play you can find at this link.  We also use the hashtag (search link) #CASEingtuesday184

Here is the sketch with Measurements to help you get started!  I just love a great sketch challenge.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Here is the shopping list of supplies I used to create this one!  Very grateful for you!

Stampin' Up Hello Cupcake and CASE-ing Tuesday Sketches #183 #CASEingtuesday183

 Good Morning Friends!

Since the time I joined card making 13 years ago, I have been in LOVE with sketches.  My great friend Brenda Quintana runs a sketch challenge that "CASES" or copies the layout of a card in one of the catalogs, and uses it as a jumping off point to design projects!

This week we were chatting and somehow it came up, and I've joined her design team!

This is my submission for this weeks CASE on page 14 of the Occasions Catalog!  #CASEingtuesday183

What do you think? Did I do okay?

Here is the original card.  My measurements are a little different from the sketch, and I did add another element so that I could find room for my sentiment

Want to play along?  We have a dedicated facebook group for everyone to play you can find at this link.  

I went a little crazy with the layers but I was having fun!  Here are the measurements I used for my project.
