Stamping 911: A Case for a CASE

S7300357watermark
One of the great things about stamping and card making is allowing your creative side to rise and shine.  Part of what fuels my obsession is the enjoyment I get when I design a card and give it away to someone special.  However, when you rise and shine on a Saturday morning and realize that you have a wedding to go to and almost no time whatsoever for the creative wheels to turn paper and ink into a card (AKA Stampin’ Emergency),  I believe there’s nothing finer that a visit to the Splitcoaststampers (SCS) Gallery to "shop" for a great CASE (Copy And Share with Everyone).  There is such a tremendous collection of beautiful artwork.  Frankly, the first thing  I do when I get a new stamp set is rush to see what’s been done in SCS with the same set.  SCS has been a fabulous tutor on layouts, color, style and technique.  It’s the perfect solution for those days of "Stamper’s Block"  or when you simply don’t have time to be Picasso.  So here’s my CASE’d sample, which made it to the wedding in plenty of time, a divine card designed by PickleTree (yes, crediting those who created the original gem is absolutely mandatory).

Stamps:  Papertrey Spiral Bouquet
Paper:  Whisper White, Black, Basic Gray
Ink:  Basic Gray, Going Gray
Tools:  Oval Punches, Ticket Corner Punch, Crop-A-Dile, 1/8" anywhere punch (the "Crop" just couldn’t reach the 3rd flower from the left), Cuttlebug and Swirls Embossing Folder (a little jazz for the envelope flap).
Perfect Touches:  Black and White Gingham Ribbon, Black Eyelets, Stampin’ Dimensionals
