Hello crafty friends! CASE Study Challenge Blog is celebrating its third birthday & I'm here to help celebrate by creating a special card for their blog hop.
If you arrived from the blog of Heather Pulvirenti, you are on the right path. If you are just joining in here you can find the start HERE.
Since CASE Study challenges are all about finding inspiration from others, we were asked to share something that we create and the inspiration for it. Well I decided to use one of my favorite scrapers as my inspiration. Here is a layout that was created by for Zva Creative's DT blog hop last month and I immediately fell in love with it.
...gorgeous huh? I always dig Christin's style... she rocks freestyle & collage like no other, but I particularly loved this one because of the colors, stenciling and that mini banners that connects her photo to her title. If you like Christin's layout as much as I did, please hop on over to her blog Umenorskans Scrappeblog after the hop. You will find tons of other great inspiration over there;)
Here's the card I created...
To create this card:
*all supplies pictured below
Attach stencil to the front of card with washi tape. Sponge Luminarte Silks glaze through the stencil. Remove stencil & let card dry.
Lightly spray card with gold shimmer spray. Allow card to dry.
Tack stencil back in place and stamp text with black ink (yes, that is my daughter's old burb cloth!--I use those to catch & clean up all my messes).
Stamp & cut out tag.
Apply gold ink to tag.
Make banner by adding washi tape to twine and cutting into triangle pennants.
Then stamp sentiment and add all embellishments to card as pictured.
Ok, so now its it time to hop on. Your next stop is Jen Rzasa's blog Our Change of Art. Please enjoy the hop & Happy Birthday CASE Study!
