CASing the Holiday Catalog

If you don't already know...CASing is copying and sharing.
Here are a couple of cards that I CASed from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.
Both are found on page 27.
They are a little different from the catalog but not much.
This card features the Ornamental Pine stamp set.  Instead of using the Washi tape (because I didn't have it) for the polka dots under Christmas Wishes I used a small strip of paper from the All Is Calm specialty designer series paper.

For this card the catalog uses Old Olive but I made mine with the new In-Color, Mossy Meadow.
If your wanting to copy a card from a catalog you can find the supplies by clicking on the Stampin' Supplies list under the catalog  HERE .

Cute Robot Card

This cute robot image is from the Boys will be Boys stamp set.
The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with the Smokey Slate Stampin' Blendabilities Markers.
The Smokey Slate card stock background is embossed with the Large Polka Dot embossing folder.
The "you did it!" is from the stamp set Bravo.

Corner Garden

The new Corner Garden background stamp lends itself perfectly for practicing with the new Blendabilities markers.
I think that came out okay...
all that was left was to add a sentiment from the Blessed by God stamp set and mount on a piece of Coastal Cabana card stock.

Boys Will Be Boys

My boys just lately returned from a 2 week vacation at Grandma and Grandpa's house.
Among other things they took a trip to the Lego store and were each treated to a rather large set of Legos.
I had the perfect new stamp set, Boys Will Be Boys, for them to send a thank you card.
Note the large embossed dots on the background paper...the new Large Polka Dot embossing folder!
I played with the Stampin' Up! Blendabilities to color in the lego blocks.
The colors I used are Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, and Costal Cabana.
 When using Blendabilites you need to stamp the image with Memento Ink so the ink won't smear when using the alcohol ink markers.

Kinda Eclectic

Okay...its been a while so don't faint or get overly excited....
I am going to post a card I made with new stuff!
The new catalog has been out since June and I got a few goodies and they have just sat in the box they came in.  Unattended to... except to pull out the new Blendability markers and play with those... a little.  Meanwhile a lot of sewing has gone on and I have taught some quilt classes at the local quilt shop this summer.
Anyway, I was in need of a birthday card and didn't have one on hand that worked.  Do you every do that?  have a lot of cards but just not the right one?  so you have to make one!
This card uses the new stamp set Kinda Eclectic.
Love it!  and look forward to making more cards with it.
Other new supplies used on this card are the In Color Sequin Assortment and the Venetian Crochet Trim.
The sentiment is from the stamp set Blooming with Kindness.

I made this tote bag with Downton Abbey fabrics for a friend of mine...the one I needed the card for.

 Inside is a pocket featuring Downton Abbey.

Thanks for looking!
I will try and get my stampin' act together and post more often.
