Banner Blast CASE Cards

Sometimes you feel the inspiration flowing, swirling around you with a thousand different colors and ideas, excitement racing through your veins as you try to keep up, endless possibilities converging into points of shining brilliance...

And then there are the days you Don't! This weekend, between a sick baby, several projects, and a laundry pile a mile high, my mojo had run for the hills!! But I needed some Birthday Cards!

Banner Blast Birthday Sale-a-bration 2014 Stampin UpThe beautiful thing about card making is that somewhere, SomEOnE is feeling that inspiration!! And, if you just follow their lead you can end up with a pretty decent card, or at least a new way to use a familiar set! There are galleries to look through at different stamping forums, sorted by stamp set or by theme; there are challenges on hundreds of blogs that give you a layout or a theme or a color combination to use; there are any number of talented card makers on Facebook or Twitter or Google or Instagram or .... you get the idea. Inspiration is out there!!

 Or, its as close as the catalog on your shelf! Stampin' Up Catalogs are great inspiration!!

These two cards are made with the Banner Blast set from Sale-a-bration. If you look in the Sale-a-Bration brochure they're right there, on page 5, in the samples they show for the Birthday Bash Bundle. So I "CASE"d them. ("Copy And Share Everything")

Banner Blast Sale-a-bration 2014 Stampin UpI loved the layouts. I liked using the Banner Blast set as a banner on one card, and then as just a visual texture accent on the other card. The same stamp set but two different looks!! I do love me a versatile stamp set! The greetings in the samples actually come from the same set, Remembering Your Birthday, but I used the Happy Birthday stamp from Bring on the Cake set on the Calypso Coral card because I'm going to be making these in a Stamp Camp and I do have two sets of the Banner Blast, but only one of the Remembering Your Birthday! Plus, Bring on the Cake is a great set too!!

So there you have it. Inspiration for those uninspiring days when your mojo goes missing! Get stamping, and try a CASE card. You never know what it will inspire you to try next!

Sale-a-bration is only here till the end of the month! Don't miss out on these great gifts with every $50 order! See more HERE:

Happy Crafting!
