CASE is NOT a dirty 4 letter word!!

CASE

it normally means Copy And Steal Everything

But lately for me it's been - Compliment Another Stamper Everyday!

Now wouldn't that be a compliment if someone copied your card? I know I'd be honoured if someone liked one of my cards that they took the time to recreate it...

Anyway, enough talk here is another CASE!

These cards were based on the Rolling with the Punches technique from Laura Fredrickson.

I CASED her card but I did it a bit differently and used the NEW Stampin' Up! In Colour Baja Breeze instead of the Ballet Blue Laura used (it's really nice too!).

Here it is again but with a different wheel and greeting!

When I made this card I punched through 2 pieces of white - the first piece to be used as the top layer and the second to be used as a mask for sponging on the 3rd piece of white paper.

The photo below shows the mask I used to do the sponging of the ornaments on both cards and it also shows my "wheel stamp".

YES I HAVE UNMOUNTED MY WHEELS and I LOVE IT!!!

I bet you're wondering where I got that acrylic block that is just perfect for the jumbo wheels...

Well I went to my local glass shop and asked them to cut the thickest "plexiglass" they had to the right size I needed - 2 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches!

I have another cut to the size for my regular wheels too!
