FWF - a CASE

Now, back to our regularly scheduled activities. ;)


I gotta tell ya; there is such a wealth of talent out in the blogosphere, and sometimes it just whacks me in the face before I knew it was there! I follow the CLASSroom blog by Ellen Hutson, and a few days ago a post jumped out at me. It featured four cards using the same stamps, punches, papers and embellishments to create four unique cards. I love kraft and earthy colors, so I KNEW I had to CASE them. Two of today's cards are just a couple of the cards I'm working on - I hope to have eight all together once I'm done.

The base is a cream cardstock that I inked with a sponge dauber around the edges to soften it. Then I stamped some background stamps on kraft paper. The sentiment is stamped on the same cream cardstock with the edges inked on it, too. A couple of buttons, and I'm done! I entered these cards in the Flourishes Favorite Things challenge.

supplies ~ cream & red cardstock: The Paper Company, kraft: Bazzill, stamps: Unity Tea Time Pattern, Distressed Dots, Baby Boy Plaid, Worn Music, Poinsettia from Hodge Podge of Happiness kit, sentiment: Unity Bright & Merry Winter Wishes


The second card is a really simple. I really like the poinsettia from the Hodge Podge of Happiness kit, and I thought it would make simple card to make up. I think this just might be the card I mass produce for Christmas this year, but we'll see. Some scoring and a single mat under the image keeps it clean and simple. I've entered this one in this week's CPS challenge.
