Stamp Simply And Don't Pass The Buck!

Well, if the title isn't a big enough hint for you.... today's Stamp Simply challenge is to CASE or be inspired by the newest "dirty girl"---the fabulous Jennifer Buck! This was fun because Jen and I have been "blogging" together since last fall and the more I get to know her--- the more I luv her! She's just too sweet for words.


In honor of Sharon's one year blogoversary - Sharon decided to showcase the Stamp Simply team and encourage us all to be inspired by their work! This week is Jennifer's turn! Well, when I look at Jennifer's creations - I see fun colors, a real crisp and classy design, ribbon, and cute images. So, I scoured Jennifer's blog and THIS card is the one that spoke to me. Yep, it actually said, "CASE me!"


So, what do you think? You see a little Jennifer in this card????

You can see I used a lot of the elements that she used and then put my own spin on it. Instead of a butterfly, I put a flower on with a cute little brad. Instead of "love you," I put "miss you!" and then instead of a soft look, I tried to go a little more manly! When my hubby least expects it, I plan to stick this in his briefcase when he is off on a biz trip. The stamps I used were a Wordsworth clear alphabet set and the new All Scallops set from Stampin' Up with the SU scallop edge punch. The ink I used was Bamboo Sprouts by Momento. Add some paper flowers, a fun brad, sheer ribbon and paper and DONE!

Want to see how some of the other SS ladies "see" Jennifer? First of all, check out Sharon's blog for her card and all the official details. Stop by Jen's blog so that you can see how she CASED herself! LOL! Then, check out Janine, Becky, Dee, and Tammy!

Hope you can make time for play time and join us! See ya back here this weekend with some more stamping fun!
