Happy Anniversary CASE Study!
I made a card for the Anniversary going on right now at CASE Study.
There are prizes and a wonderful hop that you can follow along on. There will also be 3 more hops this month on the 14th, 21st and 28th!
For the challenge part of the Anniversary, we were to CASE one of DT cards along the blog hop. When I saw this card that Laura made, I knew in my heart that I really wanted to try my hand at creating a card similar to hers. The cards pictured here are in reverse order in which I made. The first card in this post is the one that I was able to say that I was happy with. I chose a solid image to do the stamping. It is actually the top of a coffee cup image from the PTI stamp set Warm Happiness, quite old, one of the original sets I owned. Not as sexy a shape as Laura's, but I think I made it work :) I stamped in Aqua Mist, Simply Chartreuse, Autumn Rose and Tropical Teal. I then stamped a Hero Arts border Stamp in black over the image and closer to the bottom of the panel, I stamped SU Thank You image. I really like how it turned out. I loved using Laura's card for my inspiration pice. The following two cards were my first and second try...
This second card was OK, but I wanted to extend the stamped oval to the edges a little...and then I also thought to introduce another colour, the Autumn Rose.
The first card I made, well, I was a little shy with trying colours...I finished it anyway and then it toppled over onto the inked sentiment stamp...so I will have to add a few more stars ;)))
Thanks so much for visiting, I really appreciate your time and I hope you will be able to help celebrate with CASE Study too!
