Joyeux Anniversaire, Anita!

Anita from mypapercraftworld is celebrating her birthday today (the 18th) and I would like to wish her a year filled with love, laughter, beauty, fun, friendship, good food and drink, health, strength, and lots of time to create!
She is one of the sweetest people in blogland and always leaves such warm and well written comments. If you are just crawling out from under a big rock and don't know her yet, please take time to visit her blog. You won't regret it because she is also a very inspiring cardmaker!

Oh, you would like to see the card I made for her? My inspiration came from that sweet card of her that we are to CASE over at STAMPloration.

Stamps: Winnie & Walter (sentiment), Lawn Fawn (heart)
Other: Embossing Folder (QuicKutz), Washi Tape

I was inspired by the colors Anita used, the dots, the W&W sentiment, and the hearts.
Inked up selected dots of the embossing folder, spritzed with water, "stamped" on Mixed Media paper, added splatters (some of them shimmer), stamped the heart, added Glossy Accents to it, stamped the sentiment (the happy is embossed), added washi tape to card, adhered panel to card.

This card wants to play at

of course! See graphic above
Check out how the DT and Anita CASEd this sweet card!

Love that technique!

And since you are still here I am showing you a Valentine's card using another one of the panels (because, of course, I had to make several panels using this technique, right?).

Thanks for stopping by! 



  1. Super CASE!!! Ja, das ist eine tolle Technik, finde ich auch! Und wenn das so gut rauskommt, kann man natuerlich nicht wegschmeissen.... verstehe ich total. Ich hab von meiner Karte gleich 4 Abdruecke gemacht. Allerdings hab' ich sie noch nicht verwendet....

  2. Susanne!! I'm swooning at your gorgeous CASE ... those delicious spots of watercolour ... the splatters ... that polka dot border ... and that perfect little heart ... it's a stunner, my lovely friend! And I have it right here, sitting on the mantle ... and it's even more fabulous IRL! Thank you so much for your wonderful birthday wishes and your spectacular card ... you touched my heart! So delighted you played along with us over at CASEplorations with this beauty! Hugs, Anita :)
