case study challenge 134

Oh I am having such fun with the CASE Study challenges this month with Julie Ebersole as our muse! Let's get straight to it with my card for this week:

Here's the fabulous inspiration from Julie which inspired this card:

It was those blue stems that caught my eye and reminded me of Memory Box's chloe stem die cut. Then I spotted those polka dots at the bottom and thought they'd be great translated into the super cool grid border die cut from Simon Says Stamp. So Julie's all stamped card turned into my almost all die cut card LOL; the only stamping was my sentiment with the lovely font from Simon Says Stamp's furry cat & box set.

One of the best bits of my Thursday is seeing what everyone else has made from the same inspiration:

simon says stamp spring blog hop

Hello! I can't quite believe and am totally delighted to be part of the party which is Simon Says Stamp's Early Spring Release Hop! There are so many unique and fun options in this release. Take a little look:

There are 14 designers hopping along today and I can't wait to see what everyone's made! As for me, those that are regulars here know that I just can't resist a bit of cute LOL. The adorable dog from the Circle Friends set was just calling my name:

I coloured the little guy with my Copics and popped him up on a white panel with a negative circle die cut to show a peek of the striped circle from the same set stamped in Versamark on the kraft card base. Isn't that the most adorable sentiment! It fit perfectly onto the square speech bubble from Talk Bubbles 2 - score! Finally I added a bit of colour with a strip of patterned paper and a die cut heart (Holiday Shapes). Now this card measures just a sweet 3x3 which just so happens is the perfect size for the Small Envelope die!

I cut the envelope from some matching paper and added a little label decorated with the Envelope Sentiments set. 'Hug enclosed' has just got to be the perfect envelope sentiment for all occasions. I also added the sweet hearts border at the top of the stamped lines.

Now moving on to my second card, yep two cards today :) I loved the totally on trend sets Kelly Purkey has in the release and was actually inspired by the peeks of the hot of the press Kelly Purkey Project Kits! So here's my inspiration:

And here's my card:

I stamped, white heat embossed and die cut various elements from Kelly's Happiness Is set and combined it with the 'Happy Birthday' from Square Sayings with matching die from Tri Squares and threw in the 24/7 numbers from Simple Numbers too. I foam mounted everything onto a panel white heat embossed with Hero Arts graph background
