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!

Button Card

I have another card that I want to share with you today. This card will enter for Less is More Challenge #25 and CASE Study Challenge #49. Recipe for LIM Challenge this week is Button or Ribbon and I opt for buttons! Here’s the inspiration card from CASE Study this week. Such a beautiful card!

Now here is my take for the challenges:

A simple card with lots of white space. I used purple, pink and white cardstock to make this card. Played with Basic Grey stamp and used threaded white and red buttons as the flower. Hope you like my card.

May you have a great week ahead! Cheers!
