CASE challenge 2 – block stamping

Time for the second CASE challenge! Last week was a fancy fold, this time it's a technique.  Last week we linked to the clever Anna Smith and shared her beautiful creations. Now Becki and I have come up with our own versions.  What do you think? I have a few friends who are expecting babies soon, so I thought it would be good to use this challenge with a baby set.  Talk about killing two birds with one stone!  I've used the A Little Wild set from the Annual Catalogue, as it's so versatile.

Quick CASE using Petal Promenade DSP

I just had to show you the cards I made yesterday!  On Monday I received the most gorgeous card in the post from my lovely Upline, Bekka Prideaux (find her blog here!).  She is so good at celebrating our achievements, and had sent me the card on the left for my achievements in July.  Well I thought it was just stunning, so decided to CASE it as best I could. It uses the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper cut into squares measuring 4"x4", then sliced diagonally and glued to a Whisper White card base.  I [...]
