A blogger, I'm not, but I am a stamper who has loads of supplies. Being a demo for about 10 years, I have accumulated scads of stamps, paper, ink and tools from Stampin' Up. That doesn't include the contraband I collected as well. So, with that in mind, at the start of the new Stampin' Up catalog year, I have decided to CASE cards from the catalog using stamps I own that are either similar to retired Stampin' Up images, or current ones. In a few cases, I found images from other companies I could use. Also, I used some retired inks, tools etc. At this point I have made 35 cards and for the next month or so I hope to post a card a day that I have attempted to recreate with my existing stash. Does this mean that I don't need anything from the new catalog? Of course not, but do I really need it all, no. Please help me along and leave a comment. So let's get started with day one.
The cover. This card is made using Work of Art, which is still current and Summer Solstice (R) for the flower. I love you is from a dollar stamp from Michael's by Studio G I only used the I love you part of that stamp. The colors I chose were Lucky Limeade (R) and Melon Mambo.
