Nuts About You (Julie!)


Good evening!!  Yes, I’m posting in the evening today :)  I had one of my last “sleep ins,” then went to the gym and Costco (which wasn’t as busy as I thought it would be on a long weekend).  Today’s card was a joy to make :)  The new CASE Study Muse this month is one of my all time favourite stampers, Julie Lacey!!!  Oh, my!!! I have been a HUGE, HUGE fan of Julie’s for the longest time.  I love her clean, yet detailed approach to cards and she rocks colour challenges like no one’s business :)  She also reaffirms my belief that you don’t have to colour every image :)  She is a fellow non-colourer and I love her for that!! So CASEing her was a delight, as she has inspired a lot of my cards here on the blog :)  This week we are CASEing this little beauty…


I kept the same layout, used the same PTI paper, but in a different colour and kept the theme of “love” with “nuts about you.”  I haven’t put the stamp set in its case yet, but HAD to use the new PTI/Maile’s Autumn Acorns and matching dies.  Too cute!  I also kept the crispness of white but added some white stitching as Julie does on so many of her cards :)  Did you notice how amazing her photography is?  Really, head over to her blog and check out her cards…stunning!!  Thanks for visiting!!  Hope you are enjoying the weekend :)

I'm a fellow Julie fan too :) Love her clean, crisp style. Here, here to no colouring too LOL! Great CASE. Love the musical score in the BG and the acorns are too cute! Great card as always.

I need to go check out Julie's blog! Your card is a beauty Maureen. I love the white pops on all the kraft and rose/reds. Perfection!

Holy Wow, sweet Diva! This card is beautiful! I love Julie's cards as well...I'm not that much into coloring either, and she certainly knows how to work the "non-colored" stuff!
I adore all the glorious stitching you used and those awesome red highlights! And of course your trademark gorgeous bow! A fabulous tribute to Julie's are a master yourself!
Hope construction is progressing nicely, I guess with school starting you'll be plenty busy! Have a great day, my dear!
