CASE Study Challenge #5

Posted by on September 14, 2010 in Challenges, Copic markers, Cuttlebug, Flowers, Happy Birthday Cards, Stamping | 4 comments

I have been planning my entry to the CASE Study #5 Challenge all week in my head and I only started working on it last night! However I have managed to pull something off, although what I was planning in my head bears little resemblance to the finished product! Why does this always happen?

Anyway, CASE Study has a new Muse for the month of September, another talented lady by the name of Mariana Grigsby. You should check out her blog. I fell in love with her card as soon as I saw it…this style of card making appeals to me.

For my card I used a similar layout to Mariana’s inspiration card, and I was also inspired by her embossed background. I loved her polka dot ribbon and even though it is small, I have also used some polka dot ribbon.

Supplies: Regal Craft White card (smooth horizontal fold), Bazzill cardstock (blue), Cuttlebug, Fleur de Lis embossing folder, White cardstock, Autumn Leaves Clear Flower stamp (sketch flower?), Small flower wood mounted stamp (no idea of the name or brand…I have had it since the beginning of time!!), Copic markers, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, VersaColor ‘Atlanta Blue’ ink, Kaisercraft textured clear stamp – Grid (stamping on small white background piece), Hero Arts Blossoms clear stamp set (stamping on vase), sponge dauber, Kaisercraft pearls, Pebbles Inc ‘Happy Birthday’ rub-on, yellow polka dot ribbon, green cardstock (for stems and leaves), thin white ribbon, 3D foam squares, corner chomper.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
