Stampin' Up! Nothing's Better Than ~ Casually Crafting Blog Hop


Hey there!  Thanks for stopping by!  Today I'm taking part in a blog hop with the Casually Crafting Design Team!  We are an international group of Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who want to share our take on casual crafting.  We will share what we love with you monthly.  Be sure to check out the rests of the design team's projects using the links at the bottom of this post.

This month we have a color challenge.  These always stretch my creativity a bit more than the sketch challenges...I wonder why that is?  The three colors we are using are Sweet Sorbet, Sahara Sand, and Coastal Cabana.  I really want to go to the beach now, how about you!?

Another part of our challenge is to keep these cards pretty simply, without using Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machines.  I love this because it challenges me to use just a few items, like I did when I was new to stamping, or when I'm traveling.  

I did decide to use my Stamparatus for these, instead of Clear Blocks, so I could restamp the images.  First, I stamped the image outline once, then I stamped the inside once.  I always ended by stamping the image outline again, just to make it nice and dark.  The Stamparatus makes this SO easy!  Don't have a Stamparatus?  Until you get one, just stamp the outline, then stamp off before stamping the inside of the image.

I didn't take pictures of the insides of the cards...but thought you might want to know what each card says in its entirety. 
A day without chocolate is like, ummm... Just kidding, I have no idea.
Today's Plan: Consume Cofee and be awesome!
You're just like cookies you make everything better.
