Cased Card from Papercraft Essentials - (Copy And Share with Everyone)

Hello lovely peoples!  It's time for another card to hopefully brighten your day!  This time I did something I have rarely ever done, I would hazard a guess that this may be the second or third time that I've ever copied a card.

As soon as I saw this card in Papercraft Essentials magazine Issue 41, page 9, I knew 2 things:
  1. I had to get that lovely die and,
  2. I had to have a go at copying this card which was created by Dawny  Phillips!

The magazine had a free paper pack and birthday stamp from Lili of the Valley and this card was one of 6 featured in the magazine for using the free gift.

Here is the card that I cased:

And here is the card I made:

I'm really pleased with how it turned out, I must say.  I really need practice in using my patterned papers, I have so many but the collection keeps growing so I need to start using them more often.  This was a great way to do that!  Plus, I was stepping outside my box using so many different patterns, but as they all came from the paper pack, they all coordinate really well together!

I hope you've enjoyed seeing this CASE and hope to bring you more in the future!

Take care and happy crafting!

Mum's Love

G'day everyone, I hope you're having a nice day or night!  I just wanted to share my latest creation with you.  This one has been made using another recent StampinUp purchase (I had a big order delivered last week).  The stamp set is called Mum's Love - and I had to buy it because it's spelled as Mum, not Mom...which is so wrong to me being an australian, when I see the word Mom that's how I say it like Mon with an m at the end.

Anyway, I digress!  So easily done, I know.  I played around with this stamp set and also dry embossed the front of the card with my new SU Spring Flowers embossing folder.  The cardstock is from my stash (from my newsagent) but is a perfect match to the SU Tempting Turquoise ink.  I also used SU ink Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, Perfect Plum and Strawberry Slush.

It's a very simple one layer card, but I think it's turned out really quite pretty!  I hope you like it too :o)

Thanks for stopping by, and happy crafting to you all!
