CASology: enjoy





I'm always thoroughly inspired by so many paper crafters.  I know I'm not alone when I say that I'm continuously inspired by Debby Hughes...gah, such gorgeous style!  I've been smitten by THIS card which was my overall inspiration for today's card.

cardstock:  recollections/white/110, cherry wood veneer paper  stamps:  altenew/persian motifs, papertrey ink/warm happiness  ink:  stampin' up white embossing powder, fresh ink/teal, memento tuxedo  other:  create a smile/chipboard/enjoy, LYB canvas tag, pretty pink posh stitched duo two


A clean & simple card with a lot of stuff going on...LOL.

I tend to hoard my cherry wood veneer paper a lot.  I know that I'm not alone with the whole hoarding business but really crafters, it's best to use those goodies...it's the same thing with those chippies from Create a Smile.  Dontcha love that 'enjoy'?  The PTI set was a score of a deal on a FB page!

Did you notice the Persian Motifs on the Cherry Wood?  I heat embossed it but it does make the wood panel, well, funky....so then I cover the back with foam adhesive to maintain the shape.  Yes, I should just recut the die in craft foam but I always forget that tip :)

This card was also inspired by



Are you a

  4. My kinda card girlfriend...hoarding, don't know the definition of that word... I almost need you to come visit so you can purge my crafty room of patterned paper over a decade old.

  28. Loving the white embossed flower on the wood, its stunning! And I know what you mean about hoarding stuff, I think we all have something in our stash that we love to bits but can't bear to part with. I just purchased some veneer words, they are brilliant but are they too brilliant to end up on a card?? We shall see......
