I'm thrilled with how the first card turned out. Then I decided to try and jazz up the second one. Definitely don't love it as much but I had gone through all the trouble of lining up the circles to punch out and you all know how much I hate wasting. The circular flower stamp is from the stamp set, Just Believe. I used a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line up the pattern but I think I would've liked it more if they were random.

Remember when I CASEd Andrea at Work in Progress? You can see the blog post here. I really liked the idea of the negative silhouette, but cutting out the stamped image to get the effect was just way too much work. I shrank down the square and used the Little Leaves die instead and it turned out great! Saved me tons and tons of time and grief.

Just wanted to share a card I made a couple months ago for my friend, Amanda. She just started as a stylist with Stella & Dot and as part of her great customer service, she gives all her hostesses a thank you card! You can see some of the gorgeous jewelry here. Beware though because I spent a lot when I hosted a show!

I absolutely adore Crumb Cake. I love how it's neutral enough to use everywhere but not so plain that it's blah. Here I've CASEd the lovely BeStempelt. I think she's German? I'm totally guessing based off the blog's foreign language. I really like how her image was stamped onto a longer piece of card stock. Unfortunately, I looked and looked but couldn't find a stamp that had a nice long stem like hers. Instead of actual pearls like she used, I used Liquid Pearls. Remember those? The trick to having them not look like little pointy pieces of poop or a cold nipple is after you've applied it, hold your card stock up face up and flick it from underneath a few times. This settles the liquid a bit and makes it look more rounded.
