A Case of Casing....

I seem to be having a writer's block, if you will, if you couldn't tell from the last couple of cards.......

Very sweet comments, thank you, but I just haven't been feeling it....soooo, my answer to that is to case some cards until it comes back with such a VENGEANCE!!!! haha!

Here are a couple of cards that I cased from Nichole Heady's gallery, done by Nichole herself. You can see her card here.

This first card I sponged with Brilliance Green ink and used Papertrey Ink's Papertray stamp set. The little flower is GREEN, the same colour as the ink, but naturally, that won't show up properly on the screen!! I just attached it with a turquoise brad.

The second card is basically the same except I used the Happy Birthday from Limitless Labels stamp set.

On both cards I used my Crop-a-dile to emboss some dots, but I do believe that I pressed too hard.......or maybe there is only one setting for pressing.....I am still trying to get used to that crazy thing!

It really looks like something hubby should have down in his shop!! LOL!

And of course, now they have the Big Bite, which Scrappin' Great Deals offers, and it goes in even farther to your many options!!!

Were you out to the Papertrey Ink release last night?! WOW!! The site crashed right at the beginning so we all hopped over to Splitcoast Stampers and had a little "party" on their site!!

The new stamp sets are fabulous, a long with paper and ribbon and ink oh my!! I maybe able to show you some in a couple of weeks. My budget is absolutely (word of the year) busted!!



  1. Hiya Bonnie! I think we all go through that! I think your cases are great! I would recommend stepping waaay out of your comfort zone and trying something completely different! Might get your mojo a- flowing once again! : )

  2. These cards are so charming! Sorry your having a "writers" block, just keep stamping and it'll come back!

  3. Hi Bonnie!

    Well, I love your version! They're both beautiful. I love simple elegant cards. It looks so nice and clean like wedding invitations! Beautiful job!


  4. have recently discovers PTI and am LOVING Nichole's style and the stamps are calling me. Don't you just love the Polka Dots and Everyday Blessings??? OMG I don't know how long I can hold off...

  5. Hi Bonnie! I go through that from time to time. I do the same thing! Great job on your cases! I really like the bright colors! Hope you get your mojo back soon!


Thank you for your comments!
