Good morning y'all!  I have been in card maker heaven this week.  I love when I can fit time it to make at least 1 card.  Yesterday while blog hopping I decided to visit Moxie World for this weeks Tuesday Trigger.  I have never played along before but decided to this week and it was very inspirational.  So how many of you buy every cardmaking magazine out there but never try the features?  I have tried numerous techniques but have never cased a card...until today.  The Tuesday Trigger featured this card from Stamp It! Cards magazine by PaperCrafts made by Kim Crawford.
Now here is my take on the card.  I switched the kraft to the base and used the black to highlight my yellow dp.  The whole card is much brighter in real life.  I think my next purchase is going to be a light box.  This has been the longest, darkest winter ever and I just can't get good lighting!

Here is my 2nd card- I made two because I just loved the outcome and you can never have too many thank you cards.
Supplies used: Cardstock in kraft, black by Stampin Up, DP by K&Co., ribbon, buttons, pearls and the black you see in my buttons is actually black wire for jewelry making. It's very pliable and much bolder than just using embroidery floss.  My sentiment stamps are from Stampin Up's Vintage Vogue set.  I just got this set on Monday and I love it!!

Join me tomorrow for another cased card from this issue of Stamp It.  It will also feature stamps from the Vintage Vogue set.

Have a great day & see you tomorrow.
