Just in CASE - Crafting Forever stamp set by Stampin' Up!

Today's just in CASE card was created using the crafting forever stamp set.  One of my favorite stamps in the set is a sentiment stamp that says "crafting forever ~ housework whenever".  I am procrastinating house work as we speak.  Just wanted to get one more card made and one more blog post written.

Each week Alison Solven (My Border Buddy) and I CASE a card from the catalog.  That basically means we copy the card.  Sometimes it is an exact CASE but as in this card sometimes we change up the stamp set and colors.

I still love to watercolor when I can using the aqua painters and the ink refills.  It works best if you stamp the Basic Black Archival Ink or the Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on a piece of watercolor paper and let it dry for a bit before you start to watercolor.  It doesn't have to be real long just a few minutes.

Picture step by step directions for Funfold Trifold Shutter Card

I am a visual learner and so pictures are worth a thousand words to me.  Everyone learns differently and some prefer written directions.  My step by step tutorial for this funfold trifold shutter card will be a little of both.

Shutter Fold Birthday Card - Cool Treats Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com 2

The card base is Berry Burst and the patterned paper is from the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper one of the New In Colors.  I used the Cool Treats stamp set and Frozen Treats Framelits to create today's card.

Sunday Sketches SS04 -
Swirly Bird stamp set by Stampin' Up!


Swirly Bird & Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Sets & Swirly Scribbles Thinlits by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com

Last year the Swirly Bird Stamp Set was one of the top sellers when the catalog first came out.  The endless samples on pinterest where a good part of why everyone loves this set.  Because it is filled with lots of this and that shapes it can be a little overwhelming but don't let that stop you from taking advantage of this amazing set.

Sunday Sketches Series SS044 Swirly Bird Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! by www.stampstodiefor-horz

Each Sunday I create a card sketch and stamp a card using the card template.  This week was a fun sketch pretty clean and simple.  The daisy's from the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper is one of my favorite this year. I love Daisies!


Patsy Waggoner's wedding  stamps to die for
I loved daisies so much they were a main part of our wedding in 1975.  This is my one and only little sister.  She is the one who got me into stamping in the first place, so I guess I owe it all to her.  There is 10 years between us and she is a medical miracle and an answer to many years of praying as a little girl for a little shisher.  I am a strong believer in prayer and miracles. 

Tom and I cutting the cake with diasies

Our cake was made by Tom's Mom and decorated with Daisies, pictures don't do it justice.  My Sweetheart Tom and best friend will celebrate our 42 wedding anniversary in August exactly a month from today.   You will notice I didn't have daisies for my bouquet.  I have some allergies and a handful of flowers for a wedding ceremony would have resulted in a great deal of sneezing, but I would have LOVED them.
