This card was CASEd from one by Michelerey on SCS.  It was made with Happiest Birthday Wishes, one of the hostess stamp sets in the new 20011-12 Idea Book and Catalog from Stampin' Up!  The stamps were colored with Stampin Write markers then stamped on Whisper White card stock.  The card base is Rich Razzleberry card stock, the multi-colored paper is from the retired Razzleberry Lemonade DSP, and the ribbon is the retired Crushed Curry Polka-Dot grosgrain.

Welcome to the 8th stop on the SU STARS July blog hop! If you are hopping along in order you arrived here from Connie Smith's blog.  If you happened along some other route, you can continue hopping by following the link at the end of this post or find a list of all blogs on our hop this weekend by visiting the SU STARS blog.

Our theme this month is Movers, Shakers and Summer Mini Make and Takers.  My project is one of my very favorite moving cards -- a Waterfall card.  It's much easier to make than you might think.  If you can cut and fold paper, then you can do it!  You'll find a tutorial on SCS here.  The first photo below is how the card looks when taken out of the envelope.

Pull the tab at the bottom of the center panel and watch the stamped images unfold!

The greeting or sentiment is revealed as the last image appears.  There's also room for you to write a personal message and sign the card.

Materials used:  Chocolate Chip and Whisper White card stock, Sending Love Specialty Designer Series paper (retired), Birthday Bakery stamp set (retired), Stampin' Write markers, and Glitter brads.

Thanks a bunch for stopping by.  The next and last stop on our hop is the blog of Shari Dudek.  Enjoy!

I love making patriotic cards for my father in law, Albin Hamilton. He's a great patriot, an Army veteran of WWII, fought in the Battle of the Bulge, and is a wonderful father-in-law.  This card was cased from one by staceyr4 at SCS.  The stars were punched from Whisper White and embedded into the Night of Navy by running them through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice folder.  The rubber on the stamp was colored with Night of Navy and Cherry Cobbler markers then stamped onto Whisper White card stock.
