I just got done looking at all the comments from my last post again to see who correctly guessed the product that I failed to list when creating my Try Stampin' On Tuesday challenge card.  First, thank you all for taking time to comment.  As most of you know (who have a blog), it is always a great joy to hear from those that stop by and look at your art.  It not only validates your existence in the blog world, but really makes you feel good.  Some would say they don't need validation or someone else to make them feel good, which would be nice if we did feel that way.  But I have to be honest and admit it does make a difference.  I especially like comments because I always go check out the person's blog to see where they live, what type of art they create, and just get a "feel" for that person.  Basically, that is why I blog -- because I love to socialize (ask any RubberQueen!) and because I "really do" love showing others what they can do with Stampin' Up products (which I also "love").   I also loved reading all the guesses for the missing product -- some made me chuckle, some made me think "where did that come from --LOL," and some were very close or right.  So the first person that provided the correct product name was Linda Tarolli, she said:

Another great card, Sandi. I think you forgot to mention the shimmer -- either shimmer paint/alcohol or the Smooch Spritz vanilla.

Yes Linda, it was the Shimmer Paint/Alcohol mixture (Frost White) on the main image.  I know I said this was just a "challenge," as I don't do blog candy, but I am going to mail you the card and a small surprise just because it's Friday.  However, I feel like we were all winners because it was a lot of fun and you all sure did try hard to figure it out.

Now, how about me showing you my cards from my last card class?  Okay, I like that idea too!  All of these cards were CASEd (with a few changes/additions).  The ladies truly loved these cards and so did I.

This is a CASE of Patsy Waggoner's card I received in a swap.  It features the "Blossom Party Originals Die" and the "Word Play" stamp set ("Vintage Vogue" stamp on the envelope).
For the inside of the card I decided to use the "Something to Celebrate" Level II Hostess Set from the "Occasions Mini Catalog."  Now it is ready to add a note for a graduation, new home, new job, or anything you want to congratulate someone special in your life.
This was CASEd from another RubberQueen (thank you to Susan Wohlfert), I believe from our Shoebox Swap.  I changed it to a belated birthday card because I never remember to do these.  It features our circle punches with the "On Your Birthday Stamp Set," "Elegant Soiree Designer Series Paper" and "Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die." 
Isn't that owl just the cutest!!  This was CASEd from Ronda Wade's Baggie Book class featuring "Sale-A-Bration" stamp sets.  I used the "So Happy For You and Punch Bunch Stamp Sets," "Elegant Soiree Designer Series Paper" and "Baja Breeze 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon." 
And finally, I call this my "Happy Card" -- so much fun and happiness in this card, which was another CASE from Ronda's Baggie Book class.  This features the same two stamp sets as above:  "So Happy For You and Punch Bunch."  You will notice that my envelop has designer paper on it -- that wasn't put there because I planned it.  Yep, it is to cover up my boo boo made when I was trying to stamp.  I was lucky enough to have the "Hostess Level I Designer Series Paper Pack - In Color" that went perfect with Peach Parfait circles.
Well that's it for today.  I hope you liked these as much as I did, and thanks for stopping by.

  1. I love the cards and especially the insides and the envelopes. I'm really bad about envelopes. But yours inspire me.

  2. What??? You're sending me a card. You know I always enjoy your cards, Sandi. No need for anything further. I do love your "happy" card; it's so cheerful and easy. Another for my group to re-case from you.

  3. Great job on all of them. Pam would really like that last one. I found one that I am going to case that uses orange for her card this year. My favorite one is the first one. Love the color combination. TFS

  4. I already told you on the phone how much I really like these cards but I really like the first one. I love the colors and cannot wait to case it. I have to get started using some of my flower designs you have so many to choose from that are so wonderful to use.

  5. Sandi I'm enjoying your blog and especially to see that you liked my birthday card so much you used it and put your lovely touches to it. I had cased it from Sarahsinkspot.
