color and *CASE adventures

Have I mentioned that I really love the Kinda Eclectic stamp set?  I've collected so many great samples on my Pinterest boards that I could probably make cards for a month without buying another stamp set.  This one, for example, which I *CASE'd, using colors from ColourQ:
stamp set - Kinda Eclectic; ink - Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Pacific Point, Versamark; card stock - Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White; tools - Big Shot with Decorative Dots embossing folder; accessories - Old Olive 1/4" grosgrain ribbon (retired), Tea Lace paper doily
I added embossing to the white panel so I could complete a center-column bingo at The Paper Players, too.

I did mention (earlier today) that I needed Thank You cards to include in orders that will be delivered next week; I also need several birthday and anniversary cards for the month of September.  Continuing my timing for the year of mailing cards on the date of the celebration instead of early enough to be received on the date, this card will be going to my nephew and his wife.  I adapted a graduation card I *CASE'd last year, using the CAS on Sunday challenge of black & white with one color:
(edited to add - this is the card I *should* have linked at CAS on Sunday, I clicked the wrong one)
stamp set - Sassy Salutations; - ink - Basic Black; card stock - Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Whisper White; punch - Itty Bitty Accents; tools - Big Shot with Chevron embossing folder: accessories - Calypso Coral Sycamore Street button (retired), Basic Black 1/8" taffeta ribbon  

*CASE = Copy and Share Everything
