We are featuring Circles this week at Can You Case It 25.  It's been a really long time since I've made a Telescoping Circle Card!  I am going to love giving this to a first time mommy- who has chosen to NOT know the sex of her baby!  The Designer Paper- LULLABY is truly gender neutral.  The coordinating colors are Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Hello Honey, Pistachio Pudding and Whisper White.  I also added a bit of Wisteria Wonder.  A gift card will fit right into the Bottom Layer.

Both are usually well received!  The blanket material was navy, orange, white, and tan.  It had a sailboat pattern on it and I had a needed a Masculine Graduation Card to go with it. I have a serger sewing machine and finish the edge with a blanket-like stitch.

We've got a FUN theme picked by Amanda this week at CYCI 23!  - Black & White.  I stair-stepped some 1" Designer Paper Squares on a 4" x 4" background and then layered it on Black & White.  The finished card size is 5" x 5". Using my Envelope Punch Board- I customized an envelope.  

I added a Floral Framelit Flower to the inside of the card.

The Envelope Punch Board has an easy guide to follow to make envelopes to fit your card size.  The majority of the time we make cards to fit the standard envelope sizes (A2 or 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"). We now have endless choices for card sizes & envelopes.

On the card front, I included a Floral Frames Framelit as a Label in White to address to the recipient. 

Do you have our Stampin' Up! Paper Trimmer?  You can switch out the cutting arm and add the Rotary Trimmer Arm (129407) and make some awesome deco cuts!  I used the Tiny Wave Blade (129409) to make the Black & White Layers. 

Stamp Set: Itty Bitty Banners
Ink:  Stazon Black
Card Stock:  Basic Black, Whisper White, DSP- Neutrals Paper Pack
And More:  Rotary Trimmer & Wave Blade, Floral Frames Collection Framelits, Circle Punch, Bitty Banners Framelits

Oh what a soft color palette for this week's blog hop.  Did you stop at JONI'S BLOG on your way here?  I know I was suppose to add Victorian, but as you will see.... I was completely done and heading out of town when I realized I omitted the "Victorian" part of the challenge.  OOOPS!

The card base is 5 1/2" x 6 3/8".  Scored at 4 1/4".  Each panel is cut 1 7/8" x 5 1/4".  I crimped the White base after stamping it and crimped the cozy around the coffee cup and the White Oval.  I placed a Starbuck's Giftcard on the front inside before I sent it off. 

Stamp Set:  Perfect Blend
Ink:  Basic Black
Card Stock:  Sahara Sand, Whisper White, Pool Party, Perfect Plum, Garden Green, DSP- Subtles Collection
And More:  Oval Framelits, Crimper, Toothpick

Time to hop with the designers at Coloring Down the Line!  You may have arrived here from JONI's BLOG- & I'm happy you stopped by!  Our colors this week look like an orange creamsicle! Kinda makes me want one on these warm muggy days in Nebraska!

I've used our NEW Blendabilities Markers to color in the Swallowtail.  First I stamped the butterfly with Momento Black Ink- it is designed to use with the Blendabilities so the blending of the alcohol markers on the black ink won't bleed.  I worked with the Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight Markers. 

Stamp Sets:  Swallowtail, Gorgeous Grunge, Something to Say
Ink:  Momento Black, Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron
Blendabilities:  Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight
