Don't you just love this card?

Well, I have finally found some time to get back to card making!
This beautiful card is one that I CASEd. For those of you who are not familiar with the term, CASE stands for "Copy And Share with Everyone". I spend a lot of time on the SplitCoastStampers website and it is where I find much inspiration. Once in a while (okay, more often than that, lol), I will come across a card that I just absolutely love and I end up CASEing it. That is just what I did over the weekend.
Now, when I do CASE, I like to give credit where credit is due. I have never put any card up on this blog that I did not design myself. But I really want to share this with you, so I contacted the designer of the card, Kirsten Kennedy. She couldn't have been nicer and gave me the go ahead to show off her lovely work. So, here is my copy of Kirsten's (aka KKID on SplitCoast) card.
All I did differently was change the sentiment stamp, and I did not round the corners, as Kirsten did. Other than that, it's the same. I just love it.
If you want to see Kirsten's original, visit her blog here

So then I decided that with such a great layout, I could make all kinds of cards by just changing the papers, ribbons and sentiments.
There is some new designer series paper from Stampin' Up! called Cottage Wall. Each pack has 2 each of 6 sheets, with double sided designs. I made three more cards using the Cottage wall papers and thought that these would make nice teacher's gifts. I plan on packaging two of each card for a six card set. With three different sentiments, I think this gives a nice card assortment.

Thanks so much Kristen, for sharing your wonderful card and giving me the inspiration I needed to get back into my studio and making some gifts. Summer will be over far too soon and I know I will be glad to have these card sets all ready for my kid's teachers!

Okay- I had better confess: here I tell you I "give credit where credit is due", and yet I failed to tell you that Katie is the one who took the photos!
Sorry Katie, and thanks so much for all your help! :-)
