Yes, it has been another week since I last posted.  I don't know how my friends manage to post just about every day (and one in particular that posts EVERY day).  First of all, I don't stamp every day, with the exception of the last couple of weeks prepping for a RubberQueen event, but I can't share those right now.  I am in my studio every single day but not always stamping, a girl has to get organized in between stamping, which is usually a monthly thing for me.  But then, I love to organize.  I always find product that I haven't used, find missing tools (like my ruler again!!), and/or see some beautiful swap cards that I decide to use for a class.  That is what I did for all of my cards at this month's card class.  Every single one of my cards were CASEd (copied and shared everywhere) to some degree.  Bottom line, they were all beautiful, and I appreciate and thank all of the ladies who created the original cards.  I'm sure some of their cards were also CASEd from someone else, but that is just another reason I love Stampin' Up and stampers in general.  We all love to have our cards/projects CASEd. 

So let's get on with sharing:

This is a total CASE of a card we did at a shoebox swap (except a different sentiment).  Tamie Ackerson created this beautiful card (thank you for letting me know Lynn!!).  It was so easy to make (notice the new "Framed Tulip Textured Impressions Embossing Folder," from the Occasions Mini Catalog.

This design was CASEd from a beautiful thank you card I received from Andrea Walford.  All I had to do was update it with current Stampin' Up products.  Product used from the new Occasions Mini Catalog:  the "Build a Blossom Stamp Set" and "Blossoms Petal Punch" for the leaves and "Fun Flowers Bigz L Die" for the large flower.
This card is CASEd from one of our make'n takes we did at a RubberQueen meeting (Ronda Wade's) quite a long time ago, but my clients had wanted to make it so I just updated the cardstock and designer paper colors.
And for the life of me, I cannot remember/find who I CASEd this card from.  I am going to say I received it from a card swap.  So if this is your card, please let me know so I can give you credit.  The only thing I changed (as it was so gorgeous) was the sentiment.
Okay, it is way past my nap time (which I have not had many of in the last month) so I am out of here.  Have a wonderful week and see you soon.

  1. Like all the cards Sandi. I am in love with all the textured things I think they add so much too a card.

    1. I like the framed tulip border and the simple color of the card.
    2. I like all the layers of the card and texture on the flowers and the pattern you choose for the large flower.
    3. I like the tea bag holder and flower and the colors. The colors remind me of the warmness of tea.
    4. Now this is going to sound funny but I really like how you tore the paper behind the stamped flowers. It can either look like a large rose bud if you choose or my first thought was a wasp nest. Now stop laughing Sandi, I mean that as a good thing....think outside the

  2. Very pretty cards, Sandi. You do such beautiful work. I am going to have to stop by more often to see what you have made!!

  3. Your first card is Tammie's. I love that card and the second one is very pretty too. I finally got stuff started for the 29th. I washed the material.

  4. Sandi, I love them all. On the 2nd one, embossing the flowers really makes them pop out. Of course I am partial to any cards that hold tea bags (great job). On the last one, tearing the paper was neat-haven't seen it done like that. At first I thought is was a leaf, then maybe a tree, then after reading Kathleen's comment-not sure. So that just leaves the 1st
    one-MY FAVORITE. I can't wait to that embossing folder. You did a great job of casing.

  5. I love them! I'm going to have to do some CASEing of my own!
