Can You Case It #65 and New Team Members!

Happy Sunday peeps! I had a busy but nice day yesterday. I made some cards in the morning and then ran over to Scrap-A-Latte to drop off my cards for the class on Friday! The best part was the ride, I had the top down in the car! Oh how I have missed the convertible! When I got home my friend Sue stopped by and we played with Etsy for a little while setting up my store. People have been asking me if I sell my cards so I thought that it was about time to see what I can do about that! I will begin adding things to it and hopefully in a few weeks it will be filled and ready to go!

Today I’m announcing part of my Design Team over on the Can You Case It blog! My friend Eva asked me a while ago if I would like to co-manage a the Can You Case It blog with her and choose a team. We will alternate teams every other week. I think that it will be lots of fun! So it is with great pleasure today that I announce the first two new Design Team members…

First up we have the very talented and versatile Michael Trent!

Michael Trent CYCI

Michael is originally from Hicksville, NY (not too far from me!) and currently live in Cosmopolis, Brasil (pretty far from me!). You can visit Michael’s blog, World of Michael Trent, HERE.

Next up is the cleverly crafty Andrea Tracy-Tucker!

Andrea Tucker CYCI

Andrea currently lives in Wray, Colorado with her family and horses! I’m very happy to call her my friend! You can visit Andrea’s blog, One Stampin’ Mother Tucker, HERE.

So there are the first two new Design Team members for my team over on Can You Case It! Show them some love by leaving them a comment on their blog posts for today’s challenge!

Speaking of today’s challenge it’s a Clean & Quick one…

CYCI #65

I was a little worried when I saw this, I don’t think that I have ever made a card in 10 minutes! I definitely planned out what I was going to do before I got started! My card base is a piece of Whisper White Card Stock. I used the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangles to cut out a piece of Silver Fancy Foil Designer Vellum and adhered it to the base with SNAIL. The main panel is a piece of Smoky Slate and is cut out with the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangles, I also cut out a piece of Whisper White. Using my MISTI Tool (loving it by the way!) I stamped the image with the greeting from the Adventure Awaits Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black on both the Smoky Slate and Whisper White. The Simon Says Stamp Jumbo Jets Craft Die is used to cut out the sentiment from the Whisper White panel and is then adhered over the Smoky Slate panel with Foam Tape. I then adhered a piece of Fun Foam between the panel and the card to give it a little more dimension. I love the look of the spotlight die cut plane over the greeting. I think this would be a perfect card for someone going off to college, changing careers or facing a big decision! I hope that you enjoy my Clean and Quick card for this week’s Can You Case It challenge! Don’t forget to visit the blog to see what our newest Design Team members have done and of course the rest of the Design Team too! Feeling inspired? Make a card to enter in the gallery and you could be one of our picks for the week! Thank you so much for stopping by today, I’m always glad that you do! Have a sensational Sunday! 🙂
