How are your days going with the lifestyle changes during covid-19? We have all had to adapt to new routines and how we gather with family and friends. So grateful that we have the ability to keep in touch online. Stamping has always helped take my mind of the stresses of life, I hope it can do the same for you.
It is time for our Just in CASE series. My Border Buddy Alison Solven from Canada and I take turns creating a card to share each week, this week it is my turn. We CASE projects from a current Stampin’ Up! catalog to share. CASE stands for (Copy And Selectively Edit). We like to show you how you can use the paper crafting projects in the Stampin’ Up! Catalog to inspire you!
Today's card features the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set from Stampin' Up! mixed with some naturals colors and a pop of Real Red.hen you CASE, you can copy it exactly, or selectively edit it by changing the colors or the stamp set or both. Today is a close case with simply changing the the stamp set, the designer paper and the embossing folder.

Patsy, I like the color combo you used with the sunflower. The sunflower is totally awesome! But, then again, it could be because the sunflower is the state flower for Kansas and yep, I’m from Kansas! lol Thank you for sharing your time, talents and creative imagination with us.

Even though the poinsettias are beautiful, this card using the sunflower is wonderful because I don’t do Christmas. What a great idea!
