CASE Study Anniversary Blog Hop & Wee Memories Challenge #63

Happy First Anniversary to CASE Study!! In order to celebrate their anniversary, the design team is having a blog hop. We get to hop from blogs to blogs of their past and current DT. You can’t believe how much inspiration and fun I had during the hop. Come join in the fun if you have time!

This week, we get to CASE any card that inspired us along the hop.  I chose to CASE a beautiful card from very very talented Cristina. Cristina’s work has given me a lot of ideas and inspiration. I really admire her full of creativity CAS style. And she was just crowned as 2011 Gallery Idol! Awesome right?! She truly deserves this title. Okay, I sound like a small fan now *wink*, let’s get back to the card.

So here’s the card of Cristina that I chose to CASE:

and here’s my take:

My apology for the bad photo quality. I stamped multiple owl images using different ink colors. I embellished the card in the same way using ribbon and buttons. This card will also enter for Wee Memories Challenge #63 where we need to play with at least 4 colors in our projects. This is pretty easy as I stamped the owls in 5 colors =D

Thank you for dropping by and hope you like my card!


CASE Study Challenge #50

Hello! Today I will share a card that I made to enter for CASE Study Challenge #50. This is the card for your inspiration.

Wow! I totally agree that this card will definitely give your mojo a kick! I determined to play with this challenge the moment I saw this beautiful card. The DT also came up with really awesome designs. Now here’s my take for this challenge.

I followed the layout of Dawn’s card. I still own a limited number of stamp sets and cardmaking tools at the moment. So how do we color the stamped images when you don’t have any copic marker or distress ink? I opt for old-school color pencils! =) Yes, I still keep them from my school days till now and they’re still in good condition.

A closer look at the flowers. I added stickles to the center of the flowers.

What do you think? I hope they look fine to you. Until I filled up my piggy bank to buy craft supplies, guess I need to stick to color pencils for the time being. Hope you like my card!
