Go Fly A Kite

I've been on a bit of a Stamping Sabbatical lately and just recently joined in with the SSUS (Sensational Stampin Up Stampers) group in a One-One Anything Goes card exchange.  With this exchange we can use stamps, papers, embellishments, etc...from ANY company we want.  We make one full card and send it to our partner.  Here is the card that I made and sent to my partner,

Card Stock: SU - Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Real Red, Old Olive)
Designer Paper - My Minds Eye (Lime Twist - Fly a Kite "Soar" Kites Paper).
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Prisma Colored Pencils, Gamsol.
Embossing Folder - The Paper Studio

Fishtail Dies - MFT

Here is the card I received from my partner: Jeanne Nielsen


She even did the inside:

Isn't that fun!

Mojo lost, Card Casing to the rescue!

Yes,  I "cased" a card and I'm not ashamed to admit it.  I'm a bit "rusty" with my stamping lately since I haven't done much of it for some time.  I came across THIS CARD
made by the talented Karen Giron  and loved it.  I decided to do my own take on this card so without further ado here is my version:

I didn't have any Die cut out like the (Hi) on Karen's card so I went with a stamped sentiment instead.





























Card Stock:  Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive.
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Sentiment - Amuse Studio
Embossing Folder - Modern Wallpaper (Cuttlebug-Provo Craft)
Circle Die - Spellbinders
Flower Die - Amuse Studio
Gem - Source Unknown
I also used a piercing tool around the outside edge of the circle.

Thanks for the Inspiration Karen.
