Hooray It's Your Day ~ SOA Sneak Peek ~ Video

The new Stamp of Approval Young At Heart collection is being released next week and I just can't stop playing with my box of goodies!  When I saw the layered circles in the Ring in the Celebration stamp set by Winnie & Walter I knew I wanted to create a CAS card with the Rings as the star of the show.  

I have teenage boys and I'm in need of cards that they can give to friends. I ended up created 2 cards.  The one above is a more masculine version that my teenage boys could give to a friend.  The one below has a "slightly" more feminine look with the soft yellow glow and pink frosting.

I captured these cards on video so you could see how easy it is to pull off these looks, plus you'll get a peek at the soon-to-be-released SOA collection.  ;) 

CAS(E) this Sketch has another fabulous sketch this week.  It fits the design of my cards, so I am linking up with them and sharing it with you to play along too!  I love how using sketches helps me focus my design.   This is especially true when I am overwhelmed by all the possibilities a collection, or even a single stamp set, has.
