A CASE of Friendship

My daughter and I had a fun afternoon of stamping today. You see, over at Splitcoaststampers, for the Free For All challenge today, Dawn is challenging stampers to a...CASE of Friendship. Now, throughout the years, I have made some super fabulous friends at SCS, and I treasure them dearly. So to choose one to CASE over another would be impossible. However, my daughter and I just happen to be going out to lunch tomorrow with one of my dear, dear friends Pat Smethers, so we decided it would be fun to each choose a card of hers to CASE. I made the first card based on Pat's card found HERE. Pat's gallery just oozes warmth because she stamps from the heart, and shares that heart whenever, and wherever she can. She's a real treasure!!

I LOVED the large sentiment that Pat used against the square dp, and the texture and border of the backgrounds really caught my eye. For my card, I used all Waltzingmouse images creating my own background with the sets Dainty Doilies Large, Say it Loud and Text It. Everything was stamped with Versamark, with the sentiment being embossed with Black and the Doilies and Text with white. I then used the Resist technique and sponged Spun Sugar Ranger Distress Ink over the embossed images. The border was made with All Around Martha Stewart Punches, and I added some Seam Binding ribbon, a button, silver cording and I-Roc Rhinestones.

My daughter, Nichole, took a totally different approach and used darker colors. She knows Pat adores brown, so she purposely chose MME Twinkle, Twinkle Little Boy dp and CASEd the card found HERE. She also used the Dainty Doilies Large set along with the sentiment from Teeny Trees.

She also included the sewing, and added some buttons and silver cording with a rhinestone based on Pat's sweet card.

So that's it ya'll. Hope you're having a fabulous weekend.
Thanks so much for dropping by!
Happy Stamping!

Looove the soft feel to your card, Tosh. Great border and the touches of bling are perfect. Love your daughter's take too - her looped bow is great!

Andrea Ewen said...

Wow, Tosh...both of your cards are beautiful! I love the border punching and soft colors of yours and Nicole's colors and accents are gorgeous! I can see that your daughter inherited the creative stamping gene from her mother! (Unless, of course, your husband is a better card maker than you, lol!)

How delightful! Not just your cute cards, but the fact that you spent time stamping with your daughter! I'm sure that was a major blessing for you! Enjoy your time with Pat, she was a wonderful stamper to case. TFS!

I am loving getting to know Pat better through the DD chat room and she is a super talented lady to CASE! I love that you and your DD chose a feminine and a masculine version to create and Nichole has inherited your creative genes for sure!! Both cards are wonderful!

Grace said...

Oh wow! Tosh how fun this must have been stamping with your DD and also getting together with sweet sweet Pat! Oh how I wish I could grab a lunch date with her... and you too! Both of you did great jobs casing Pat's heart and talent! Love them! Give Pat a hug for me when you see her next!!!
