SUMMER CASEing

My craft room has seen some action since I've been on summer break! I've been making cards copied (CASEd) from other great stamping artists. I truly appreciate a great card design, especially one that makes me want to ink up my stamps and copy it! 

This first card was CASEd from Mary Brown's card.  I'm a sucker for Stampin' Up!'s Daffodil Delight, and SU's Polka Dot Parade DSP really shows it off! The sentiment I used is a retired SU rub-on.

I found this next card on Pinterest, and believe it was originally found on the Stampin' Up! website. If that is incorrect, please kindly let me know so I can credit the proper source.The Patio Party DSP (retired) makes this card super easy to put together!  The three cakes are cut out of the designer paper, and raised up on dimensionals.  The only stamping is the "Birthday Wishes" sentiment from Bring on the Cake.
This next card is a CASE of Rita Wright's card.  I love Daffodil Delight paired with Basic Black!  Somehow, my large flower turned out larger that I'd like it to be.  Ugh!  I used SU retired striped grosgrain ribbon for the horizontal center strip in place of the designer paper strip.
This year, I had many graduates to acknowledge, and I made many of these cards!  It was inspired by two cards: Mindy's (Bada-Bing! Paper-Crafting!) card and Teneale Williams card, using the stamp set, Blue Ribbon and Storytime DSP (retired).

All are beautifully done, Nancy, but I'm especially drawn to the first card. I keep reminding myself to play with that set more and then promptly forget. Great to see you enjoying some creative time!
