march card making night - consider it CASEd

I held my monthly card making night last Thursday! It was a fun group of 16 stampers. I am really enjoying connecting with new stampers, as well as seeing my "regulars" each month. What a wonderful way to inspire...I love this job!!

Because I had a bit of a busy week, I decided that my cards would be cards I had saved to CASE (Copy And Share Everything). I changed each of them slightly in my own little way, but the layout and idea were inspired by other stampers I admire!

Easter Add-On Project
Each month I have an "add on" 3D project that is optional for anyone interested in making something a little extra beyond just the cards. I try to make something that coincides with an upcoming holiday...this month it was an Easter treat! I have seen these cute framelit treat holders all over since many demos came back from Leadership. Angela Kennedy Juda at Chic N Scratch Live! has a great video tutorial. I was inspired by the chick design with the flower by Julie Ramos after seeing her sample on Stampin' Connection (a Stampin' Up! demo only website).

Stamp Set: Everybunny, Teeny Tiny Wishes (Happy Easter)
Whisper White, So Saffron, Pool Party, Island Indigo In-Colors DSP (polka dots)
Ink: Black Stazon, markers w/blender pen (to color in the chick)
Accessories: Dimensionals, Rhinestone Accents

Tools: Word Window punch, Modern Label punch, 1-3/4" Circle punch, 2-3/8" Scallop Circle punch, Boho Blossoms punch, Itty Bitty punch (smallest flower), Labels Framelits (largest size), Big Shot

These are all fabulous! My favorite is the one with the butterflies but they're all very CASE-worthy.
