MMM Yummy! Love that berry bliss paper :) Can't wait to make some non-stamping cards myself! What do you think of rub-ons? I've been adding them as a greeting on my cards... more non-stamping accessories to love!

WOW, this is beautiful also. Great work. :0)


Hi Erika .... the patterned paper you used in your last two "stampless" posts is darling; I especially like the pink and brown combination :)

On a personal note, I too save and hoard all my favorite stampin stuff, and keep thinking that one day there will be this ultimate card or scrap page I'll need to make, and I'll just HAVE to pull out all my BESTest of Best and use it. Of course in the real world, that is never going to happen, so I finally decided to stop "saving" stuff and enjoy it and use it when I want to and when I have it :) Afterall, what is the point of having beautiful things if you can't share them with friends and loved ones.

Beautiful!! This paper is so delish!!! Love how it can be used to create a quick and simple card.

Patty W

Oh my... beautiful...just adore the colors!


You are so funny! Sweet cards these past few non stamping days. take care k

These "non-stamping" cards are wonderful and take advantage of the beautiful DP that is available. I appreciate your artistic eye in bringing the patterns together. That is not a given with all of us! Thanks for sharing and adding another tool for our papercrafting idea box.

I like this card as well. I like this paper, I am going to have to get myself some of this paper....I like pink and brown tgether. Thanks for sharing.


I love the last couple cards. I love to take one card and do it over & over in different colors, or different papers, and embellishments too - I love color.

Oh, I just love your comments about CASEing. I look at the SU! catalog for inspiration long before I look at any of the magazines. I don't know that I've ever CASEd anything completely, though I have been inspired by a layout concept or a technique. I have too much much fun just playing. So that it is almost impossible for me to CASE myself -- making 6 cards for a swap that match? I don't think I have ever done that! 6 with a similar theme and set of stamps? Maybe. 6 alike? NEVER. LOL.

And about hoarding all those wonderful supplies that just might retire and then I won't be able to get anymore of it or that were lucky one-off finds somewhere that then become so "precious" they can't be used ... could you post (sometime when you actually have a few minutes of free time) how you overcame that "fear"?


Case'ing.. Thats a funny topic. I am a terrible Case'er ... I try to case, but I find I don't have some ingredient needed to make and exact copy. So, then I substitute something for something else and then i pick up something else that I think goes with the something I have replaced and Viola'!!! .. My cased card now looks NOTHING like the card It's supposably cased after ..... (dot dot dot ...dot) EXCEPT Your cards.. I have sucessfully Cased You! Only you! and It no longer surprises me since you and I tend to like the same colors, stamps and papers ... So, it's easy to case projects that are right up this girls alley :)
Thanks for the awesome inspiration you have given me.
Psssst.. can't wait to get my hands on this paper It's in my TOP 3 for this SU Catty .


I love this color combo. The no stamping idea would be hard but of course look how well you do it.. or don't do it.. well whatever.. it's great!


wow ! beautiful , beautiful and beautiful !
