A CASE of Digital Proportions

Hey all!

Can you keep a secret??? I have been a little bad. I have be going slowly NUTS with this darn neck thing. I have sketched soooooooo many cards that you will be over-run with posts once I get the all clear and get them made!!! I have read Stamping and Crafting Mags, (finally) sorted all my SU stuff into the new colour groups, gone through my stamps and decided which ones I wanna part with and repackaged my punches. On the upside I am all organised and ready to go when the green light flashes!!

But...I was bad....I HAD TO STAMP!!! I kept things relatively CAS (clean and simple) so as to not be in a bad position for too long. I also made a CASE of a card I saw on SCS here. Apparently in the US they have a digital studio thing that means that you can print elements of a set out as you wish. At least I think that's the idea. Anyhow, I made 2 versions with just a minor tweak of the embellishments.




As you can see one one card I have the 1/2 pearls midway & on the other at the bottom. I have also moved the position of the bow according to balance. I am very happy with the results. It is also my first use of Elements of Style. This set is gunna be a long time fave I think. The hummingbird is stamped onto the card and then onto a wide oval punch and then positioned over the original on dimensionals. It was easy to line up with a SAMJ....to get perfect lines!! I thought the "Happy" from "Life Definitions is a nice sentiment on a birthday card.



I hope you like these cards as much as I do. I have another round of CAS cards to share later. thanks for dropping by.

CS: (SU) Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla, Elegant Sioree DSP
Ink: (SU) Night of Navy
Stamps: (SU) Elements of Style, Life Definitions (ret)

Poor Poor Lynda! I am feeling your frustration ... but I promise I won't tell anyone you stamped ... if you don't! Ooops! Too late ... I think you have already told about 20,000 people!
Love your "quick" cards. I'm sure they took no more than 2 mins each! For sure! The colours are sooo gorgeous ... love the punched effect with the bird ... and the "balanced" bows are just perfect! Hugs xxaxx

Love these cards, the CAS style shows off the stamps and embellishments to perfection. You are so clever! Now, all we have to do is keep your secret .... I don't know how you are managing to keep away from stamping; I would go stark staring bonkers! oops, too late, LOL!!!!!

I absolutely LOVE these 2 cards Lynda! Might have to add it to my CASE file. I love the simplicity of it. Love that EOS. I'm sure it will be a favourite. There are so many things you can do with it.

You take care of yourself. I'm sure a little stamping now and then won't hurt too much. At least you are all organised!

I love these cards - maybe it's the bird stamped over the oval or something. They are lovely and I couldn't pick a fav!
