Do you ever feel like you're stuck in a creative rut? Maybe you've been using the same designs for a while and it feels like you're just recreating the same card over and over again? Caseing Tuesday can help. Casing Tuesday challenges me to think creatively. Sometimes I find layouts and sketches I like, and other times, well, let's just say "once and done". But no matter what, I feel great about stepping outside my comfort zone.
Today's card sketch is a very good example of #SimpleStamping. In fact, There isn't much stamping at all. Using the Woven Threads Stamp Set, I inked the background stamp in Sahara Sand, stamped it off on scratch paper and then stamped the label. I did this two more times on the top and bottom of the card base. Then, I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black. That's it! The rest is just paper and embellishments.
Want to play along with the CASE-ing Tuesday?
Use the sketch to plan out your card. You can change a lot, a little, or make the card just as it is in the catalog. Then post it to the Facebook thread. We can’t wait to see your cards. You can use the following hashtag if you post your card elsewhere on Facebook or Social Medial. #CASEingTuesday211.

This month's Sweet & Simple Class will be a little bit different than anything we've done before. We'll still be making 8 cards, but instead of 2 each of 4 designs, we're going to be saying goodbye to some favorite Stamp Sets, Colors, and Designer Series Papers. And because I had a hard time choosing , we're making 8 cards, all different designs!!
Two Times to Choose from:
My Sweet & Simple class is perfect for both the beginner, casual, and avid crafters.
It's Friday! I can't tell you how glad I am, too! I don't know about you, but has this week seemed longer than normal? I'm sure there was an extra day thrown in there somewhere!
What are you doing this weekend? Tonight, I'm meeting some friends for dinner. Then, we're coming back to my place to drink wine and craft. Seriously? Does it get any better than that?
Tomorrow, I'll start my day off with YOU! It's Crafty Saturday on my Facebook Page at 9 am. We're going to be making Easter decor for holiday. So grab your paper, your scoring tool, and some adhesive and come craft along with me! Saturday also includes a little self-care and 'me' time with a manicure & pedicure and a little retail shopping therapy. I have to get ready for OnStage, right?
Then Sunday, I'm putting some finishing touches on my OnStage projects and presentation. I have so much in my head; I just need to get it down on paper. (No pun intended, really).
