Wow! Would you look at all that color? Something's happened because if you regularly read my blog, I don't use so much color. But spring has spring and there's color popping up all around. I saw the prettiest pink, yellow, and coral tulips the other day and I simply had to create something bright. (If you think these are bright, wait until you see the swaps I'm making for OnStage)!
Today's card is inspired by one made by Brian King. I love the simple design, but big bold sentiment from the Thank You Thinlits Die. And guess what? There's NO stamping! I haven't done a no-stamping card in a while and it was a lot of fun. Aside from running the die through the Big Shot, this card can be made in a flash!

When I first started cardmaking, I was intimidated by building layers. But the Rectangle Stitched Framelits take the guesswork out of building layers - AND they add the delicate stitched edges for added details.

What do roosters and Valentine's have anything to do with each other? Absolutely NOTHING! But, I had these white hearts that I'd cut out from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits sitting on my desk from my Monthly Club Facebook Live session last night and thought, "Hmmm...let's stamp a chicken on it." I know...clearly not enough coffee this morning! Here's how my actual creative process works at 0'dark thirty in the morning.
While the process seems a bit messy, this really is a good example of #SimpleStamping. I'm absolutely certain that someone out there really needs to send/receive a card, with a red rooster in a heart, with an "Missing you" sentiment, right?
I'm just giving you measurements today, since walked you through the process above.

To stitch or not to stitch...is that even a question? When I saw today's CASE-ing Tuesday sketch, I thought "piece of cake". I got my card all finished and compared it to the photo, and thought, "There's stitched rectangles there!" So, I went and opened my brand new pack of Rectangle Stitched Framelits and my Stitched Shapes Framelits and very quickly made another card with stitching. Now...I know which one I like best. How about you? (Leave me a comment below and tell me which one is your favorite).
The Rectangle Stitched Framelits has 13 stitched dies, perfect for making layered mats for card making or scrapbooking. You can purchase them separately for $35 or bundle them with the Amazing Life Stamp Set and save 10%. And since the bundle is $50.25, you' qualify for a free Sale-a-Bration item, too!
Want to play along with the CASE-ing Tuesday group?
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 #CASEingtuesday183.
