Make it Shine - CASE-ing the Occasions Catalog

When I saw this card in the Occasions catalog, I have to have the High Tide stamp set! It's a great card to give to anyone who may need a little bit of inspiration. We have a lot of lighthouses in the New England area and they all fascinate me. The each have their own story and they just seem to be so mystical to me. Some even allow private dinner reservations, can you believe that??

So, I hope you like this card. It's looks like it may be intimidating to make but its really quite easy. That's why I wanted to copy the catalog first, so I could try it out and practice, and I loke the way it came out.

Thank you for stopping by. Please leave me a comment below to let me know how you like this card, or just to say Hi!

Have a great day, and Happy Stampin!

Birthday Theme Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamp It Demonstrator’s Group Birthday Theme Blog Hop. To continue on your journey through our projects, simply use the BLOG HOPPERS links below.   

This card turned out nothing like it had started in my head. That's the great thing about designing cards. It can be anything you dream, and then you can change any part of it and it turns out to be something completely different. Don't get discouraged if a card is not coming out they way you thought it would. Just pick a different color, a different stamp set, or even a different embossing folder and it can change a card completely. Walk away if you have to, and come back and look at the card. We are all our worst critics. A card you don't like could be someone else's favorite. Just never give up.

Hey, Chick!

I think that this chicken is so CUTE!!! He is part of the Sale-a-Bration collection in the catalog and he can be yours for free, yes FREE, with any $50 order through Stampin'Up!

I CASE'd this card with some help from Tracy May on Pinterest. It's an easy way to use up any of the extra paper that you have on hand. This was also part of the workshop I hosted at the Beals Library in Winchendon last week.

I hope that you like him... I do! Please leave me a comment below and let me know what you think, or just to say Hi!

Have a great day, and Happy Stampin!
