Thinking of You – Heartily – fussy cut – CASEing Anita

Hi! I’m here with a card inspired by STAMPlorations CASEplorations February challenge, CASEing Anita in France. I was so excited to CASE Anita’s card! I just made time to do so within the past couple of days. I ended up making 5! I have one to share with you in this post. I’ll be back with the others in two subsequent posts.

Here’s my first:


I used the ARTplorations Stencil Hearts In Bubbles.preview-web-stencil-060-heartsinbubblesI’d like to play along at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog’s Anything Goes and STAMPlorations Never-ending Anything Goes Challenge.

Sketching Holly

Hi! I’m here with a post for CASEplorations Inspiration Project Post #48

and SSS Wednesday Challenge Blog’s: Simon Says Christmas. I’d also like to play along at Word Art Wednesday’s Challenge #211: Anything Goes.

Recently, I have been enjoying stamping with white ink on Kraft. I love Kim’s card for CASEplorations Inspiration Project #48.

Here’s my card:


Mine is a very similar design to Kim’s. For my card though, I actually did NOT STAMP, but did a sketch instead. I’d also like to play this card at Emerald Creek Dares: Bringing Bits of Cheer and The Card Concept’s Challenge #44: Festive Glory  ( I think that this card could be categorized as Clean & Graphic.) and Always Playing with Paper’s Challenge #52 {Create a Christmas Card}.
