CASE Study Challenge #58 & Pals Paper Arts #112

Hey Everyone

After I finished this card I sat back and thought “there’s a lot going on in this one”, but I think it’s growing on me.  Initially I had the flower stamped from Field Flowers but it looked “too busy” with the flower raised up, so I ended up stamping directly onto the main panel with this flower from Simply Soft.

This card was chosen as a Top 3 Winner at The CASE Study Challenge.

I’ve combined challenges with this card – CASE Study Challenge where each month we get to CASE a muse – this month our muse is Julie Lacey.  This is her gorgeous card below:

And the second challenge I’m entering my card into is Pals Paper Arts where their Element of Style challenge is to create a card with lace.  The picture below was their inspiration for this challenge.

CASE Study Challenge #56

Hey Everyone

My second card tonight is for the CASE Study Challenge.  This months muse, Julie Lacey, has a gorgeous card style and uses colours that I struggle to put together.  I’ve used similar colours that Julie has used and kept the embellishing and layering to a minimum (which is unusual for me!).  This is her card that we used for inspiration.

And this is what I came up with.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Whisper White, Calypso Coral

I then used the colour challenge (and the photo) at The Play Date Cafe Challenge to finish it off.

This is what I came up with:

CASE Study Challenge #54

Hey Everyone

This is my 6th & final post today – I think my brain may be slightly fried. My final card tonight is for the CASE Study Challenge.  For the final week of their anniversary month, our challenge is to create a card with our “signature style”.  As I tend to get a lot of comments about my “monochromatic” card style – I figured this is my signature style and whipped up a card with those tones.

Thanks for taking a look.

Products Used:
Cardstock: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand DSP
Ink: Early Espresso
Stamp Sets: Nature Walk, Vintage Vogue
Other Products: Early Espresso Satin Ribbon, Buttons

CASE Study Challenge #53

Hey Everyone

They have a really cool challenge at CASE Study Challenge this week.  For week 3 of their birthday month the challenge this week is to CASE one of the many cards that Chupa has created. You can find her site by clicking here.  This is her card below that I used as inspiration.

I remembered this card when she entered it into the challenge back in July and knew it was the one I wanted to CASE.  I decided to completely change the colour scheme as I’m not very good with combining bright colours together. In the end I stuck with what I know and used Basic Black, Very Vanilla & Cherry Cobbler. I’ve also been hanging to use my new stamp set for the first time – Forever Young.  This stamp set is available in September from the new catalogue.

Thanks for stopping by.

Products Used:
Cardstock: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Love Letter DSP
Ink: Black Stazon
Stamp Sets: Forever Young
Other Products: Striped Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Button, Scallop Circle Die, Circle Scissor

CASE Study Anniversary Blog Hop

Hey Everyone

Whoo hoo! – Congratulations CASE Study on turning one.  What an  excellent idea to have a Blog Hop for your 1st Anniversary.  I have to ask though – did you think it would be easy for us to choose just one card to CASE when there are squillions of amazing cards to choose from?  I’ve been thru the Design Team and former Muses blogs a couple of times and decided I would CASE a card that I love created by Teneale Williams. Her cards are gorgeous and you can find her site by clicking here.

This is her card below that I’ve wanted to CASE for ages.

And this is my take on it:

I’ve kept the layout the same as Teneale’s and used the lilies (I think they’re lilies) from Fifth Avenue Floral.  I know earlier in the week I said I needed an intervention on this stamp set but after today I promise I will intervent (is that a word) myself.  And because it’s a Teneale CASE I decided I needed to spruce up the inside of the card – not something I normally do – but I admire it every time she does it.

Thanks for taking a look.

Products Used:
Cardstock: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Basic Gray DSP
Ink: Basic Gray, Black Stazon
Stamp Sets: Fifth Avenue Floral, Artistic Etchings, French Foliage
