Quick Card to get your Mojo going.

Want to make a quick card?  Get out your catty and CASE something.  It works every time.  Sometimes I just can't be bothered searching through my supplies (.....there's a lot of stuff in here!) for the 'perfect' thing, so I trust the catalogue and am never disappointed.
 This card was cased from page 114.   It uses a different stamp set and greeting, but essentially it's the same.

To get the different colours on the stamped image, simply use markers to colour each area.  Tip - start with the lightest one first so you don't get the tips all dirtied up.   Breathe on the stamp before stamping to moisten the areas that were coloured first.

And yes, I decorated the inside too.  I've actually cut a mat in Whisper White and added some Wild Wasabi dsp and a stamp.  The mat helps to anchor the card, literally, because our current white cs is little flimsy as a one layer card.

Supplies used:
Stamp Set:  Button Buddies & Curly Cute.  The strawberry is from Best of Everything.
Cardstock:  Whisper White, So Saffron
Ink:  Real Red, Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip
Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch & Baker's Twine in Chocolate Chip.

So, get your Mojo going for 2013 - stop looking for the 'perfect' thing and just make something.  You will be rewarded as you spark your creativity for the new year.
