No ink and no stamps....*gasp*!


I dunno about spring, but it feels more like summer here this week! What perfect timing for my Easter holidays :) Hope the sun in shining wherever you are today and if it's not, then I'd be more than happy to share some of this sunshine with ya!

But apart from sharing sunshine, I've got something else to share with you today....

Yup - time for a shiny, new CASE study! Our muse this month, Silke Ledlow, is certainly making me think about using my DP more on my creations. This fabulous card of Silke's up for CASEing this week did just that, as did her card for last week's CASE study:

You can check out the original post for this card here

So what did I CASE? Well I was inspired by the layout and the use of DP.

Shhhhh - don't tell anyone but I caved in and recently bought a new 6x6 pad of DP that I really shouldn't have, but just couldn't resist - we've all been there, right?! So in an attempt to justify the guilty purchase, I cut straight into a couple of those sweet sheets and didn't ink a single stamp *gasp*! I wonder if this sunshine is having an effect on my inky adventures this week....?! Someone take my temperature LOL!

Sorry I digress! Here's the end result anyways:


OK, ok, so it's not like I used the whole pad of DP on the card, but it's a start at decreasing my stash of it :)

Our sponsor this week is AnnaBelle Stamps so why not join in the fun with us? You never know, you might win some inky goodies too - bonus!

But before I dash to make the most of this weather (over here, you've just gotta make the most of it when you're fortunate enough to get it), and before you dash yourself, please check out what the rest of the fabby CASE study DT whipped up for ya!

HA! NO stamps and NO ink?? You better go get your head checked, girlie!! lol
No, really... you don't have to stamp on the paper to rock it... whatever you touch turns to gold anyhow! :D

No need to confess...I have four different 6 x 6 My Mind's Eye paper pads...entire too many...don't tell my hubby :) Love the nice clean lines on your card..great masculine card!

Julie said...

No ink, no stamps, but its still perfect! Love it!

Lindsay said...

This is too fun! Love that paper!

Cristina said...

I feel the same way when I make a card without any stamps. This is so cute, though, and still so you. Hope you're out enjoying the sun!!!

Linda said...

Between you and Lynn I may be forced to purchase some My Mind's Eye paper! LOL! Love this card and enjoy the sunshine! :)

Laurie said...

Hey you!! This is adorable!! I love how those black letters just pop off of the card! Great job!!

Unknown said...

Very cute! I don't think I could justify a paper pad purchase for . . . at least ten years, but I have a few sitting in my cart at an undisclosed location!!! :)

Andrea M said...

This is just too sweet!! LOVE the black letters - how fun!!! Great mix of papers too!
