Good Morning! And welcome to #CasingTuesday! I just love being part of this amazing group of crafters and demonstrators. And now, since we've added sketches with measurements it's made it so much easier to craft along with us!
Today is a GRAY day here in North Carolina. It's chilly and raining out, but I'm really not complaining. We had a tease of spring with warm weather last week, but it is still winter and I'm prepared to remain in hibernation mode for the next few weeks. I've got lots of crafting today and the space heater keeps my studio nice and toasty. Besides, when you're crafting with butterflies, it certainly feels like spring is right around the corner.
For today's card, I chose the Beauty Abounds Stamp Set. There are lots of fun bubbly background stamps in this set. Rather than get lost in a lot of color or designer series paper, I used one neutral (Gray Granite) and one subtle (Petal Pink) for a soft gentle look.

Today's Tutorial Sketch and Products

Registration for February's Wonderful Romance Card Club ends this Friday, 2/15. You'll make 8 beautiful cards using the Wonderful Romance Bundle, plus receive combo packs of Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink Blends.
Do you ever feel like you get stuck in a rut? You've used the same card design for quite some time and you're just tired of it? Or maybe you'd like to try something new, but don't know where to start? Maybe it's time to search for some new sketches.
This week, there is a new sketch challenge on our team page. Looking at this, you know it's not my style, but I played along to stretch my own creativity. I did add more layers behind the initial ones listed there because I like to frame things and make them pop off the page. And, I was able to incorporate my product of the week, Life is Grand Stamp Set, too! All in all, it didn't turn out too badly.
So next time you're stuck, search out some new sketches. You can always come back to my blog and look through my daily tutorials. Or check out the #CaseingTuesday Facebook page for ideas. Or go to Pinterest and search for "Card Sketches". Then, feel free to post a picture over on my Facebook page so I can what you create. I'm sure it will be amazing!

Welcome to #CaseingTuesday182! Today's card is very special because it's a birthday card for my nephew, who is turning 6 years old this week. I spent 9 glorious days with him and his sister this Christmas and I really wish I was there to celebrate his birthday with him.
I had to scour my shelves for just the write stamp set for him. I originally thought I'd use the Occasions Amazing Life Stamp Set with the cute little Birthday Cake, along with the adorable Gummy Bear paper from the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper stack. But that didn't feel right t me. He's still at that stage where cute and adorable touch his heart, so I grabbed my Hedgehugs Stamp Set from the annual catalog and that worked perfectly!
