Tropical Oasis - Pineapple Friendship Card
Border Buddy Saturday - Tropical Oasis Suite by Stampin' Up!®

Just in Case Witty-cisms

It's Just in Case Thursday - the day where Patsy Waggoner (my Border Buddy) and I share a card we've CASED (copy and selectively edit) from one of our current publications. Sometimes we change the stamp set and/or colours. Today's card uses the Witty-cisms Stamp Set  from page 37 of the January - June 2020 Mini Catalogue.

Just in Case Wittycisms

I based my card a card created by the concept artists at Stampin' Up! I changed the colours because I wanted my version to be bright and cheery. I think the patterned paper looks like a picnic tablecloth and reminds us all of summer.  Here is the original card.

I changed the colours to Call Me Clover and Real Red. I also used Stampin' Blends to colour my berry instead of a watercolour wash technique in the original. Here's how you can make our card today.


  • Call Me Clover - 11" x 4 1/4"
  • Whisper White - 3" x 3"
  • Brights 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper - 5" x 3"
