Casing an Artisan Rock Star

Stampin Up Stitched All Around CASEd card Michelle Gleeson Stampinup SU

I fell in love with a card created by Elizabeth Price, an extraordinary artist and Stampin’ Up! Artisan Team member. I  used her card to inspire the card above which I created for a colleague.

Here is Elizabeth’s card:

My card used the color palette and several elements that her card had and they look very different. I hope to try to replicate her card at some point.

Do you have a favorite designer who you enjoy CAS’ing? I would love to hear from you.

Super Simple Sunday – Milestone Moments

Stampin Up Broadway Bound DSP Falling for Leaves Milestone Moments Congratulations card Michelle Gleeson Stampinup SU.jpg

I have a super simple card for you today using product from the annual catalog, holiday catalog and something retired.    I made this card for a colleague who retired a week ago. She worked in another office and due to my schedule I did not get to personally say goodbye. So I created a fun card to express my appreciation and wish her luck.

The card base is Gray Granite followed by a layer of Basic Black card stock. The star of the show is the Broadway Bound DSP – Gray Granite, Basic Black and Gold confetti makes it whimsical yet classy. Then I tied the Whisper White Polka Dot tulle Ribbon around the layers before adhering to the card base.

The sentiment is from Milestone Moments stamp set (retired). I hung onto this set for the special sentiments such as happy retirement. I used the square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits to create the rectangle. Then I cut a piece of Gold Foil card stock 1/8″ larger than the sentiment piece. A few Silver Metallic Pearls were added for additional glam.

The inside sentiment is from the new Falling For Leaves stamp set. It was the perfect message.

Thanks for stopping by for a little dose of crafting inspiration.

Tropical Chic Birthday Greetings

Stampin Up Tropical Chic Bundle Tropical Escape DSP Birthday Card ideas Michelle Gleeson Stampinup SU

This card is for a colleague who was raised in Florida and loves all things tropical. The inspiration for my card came from the TGIF Challenge this week.

I used the greenery as my circle with the banner overlaying on the focal point. A few sequins add the finishing touch.

I brought the theme inside the card and the envelope flap as well. Hey as long as everything is still on the table why not?
