A Friendly CASE

I sent this card to Lisa earlier this week and since she told me she received it yesterday, I can share it with you all. The actual layout of the card is a CASE from this card designed by Rachel for the shoebox swap I went to last month. I thought the layout was really pretty but since I didn't have the exact stamps she had, I had to change it up a bit. And since Lisa's favorite color is purple, I had to make sure to incorporate it into the color combo of the card.

I started by stamping the large spray flower from the Paper Trey Green Thumb set in Pale Plum on pearlized white paper. I then stamped the small spray flower in Perfect Plum in the center and overstamped with my Tsukineko glue pad and covered with Dazzling Diamonds. Next I stamped the friendship sentiment in Perfect Plum and punched out with my mega scalloped oval punch and layered onto a Perfect Plum Giga scalloped oval. I ran a piece of pale plum through my Cuttlebug with the Bloom Dots embossing folder and matted on Certainly Celery paper. I then tied plum grosgrain around the card stock and matted on a Perfect Plum 4.25" x 4.25" base. The corner looked a little plain, so I added a little rhinestone flower bling from JoAnn's $1 bin and some Stardust Stickles around the scallops to finish of the card.

Today I receive a card from Alma (The Cat's Pajamas) in the mail! After I picked my star-struck self up off the floor and opened the envelope, I read that I passed the test and have now crossed from trial design team member to full-fledge Design Team Member! Yay! She sent this funky little card to welcome me to the family! How sweet! Only a little longer for y'all to wait until those sensational summer stamps are released. Are you excited? Be sure and check back tomorrow... I'll be posting a sneak peak at one of the cards I designed for The Cat's Pajamas summer stamp release. Who do you want to start with.... Sprinkle or Poochie?

    It's funny - you commented that I had the Textile CB plate that you can't seem to find, but you've got the dots one that my Michael's is terminally sold out of!

Julee, I was reading along and loving the card used posted using Rachel's design from the SWISS...I was admiring all the purple and was getting into the glue stamp pad with the Dazzling diamonds - great creation! Then I went on to read about your really great news moving from being a guest to now being on the design Team for the Cat's PJ. That's really suppa news!
