Case Study #201!!

Hey everyone! I'm back with another Case Study inspiration!

This next card was originally made for Kerry Bradford Studio and is basically all digital. I printed everything out onto white cardstock then cut out the butterflies using my Silhouette.

The inspiration I took from this card was to layer two panels with the same text and use a die cut to reveal the layer beneath. 

I fell in love with the KaiserCraft Elegance collection… just can't get enough! Love the color combo! I white embossed my greeting on two printed papers, then used THIS die cut tag to cut the top layer.

I added a KaiserCraft die cut and gemstones to finish everything off. Super Easy!

Be sure to head over to the Case Study Blog to see what the design team has come up with. My favorite part of this is to see what part of a card inspires others!

Thanks for stopping by!

Case Study #200!! Whoot!!

Hey everyone, I'm back with another Case Study Card.

I have to admit, this wasn't my most favorite card I've ever made. But it is definitely worth casing and giving it another try!

I cased the sketch but used Fog card stock by Simon Says Stamp instead. I white embossed circles to create the background. You can nearly see them in the photo, but I also stamped solid circles with white ink.

I used a tag as a base for my flowers and where I cut off the right side, I added that piece to the left as a little interest. It's an easy way to add a little more detail to your cards.

Sooo… wondering about the cute little flowers? I designed them for the recent "This is the Life" release from Simon Says Stamp. To finish things off, I white embossed a message on Slate cardstock. I've listed all the supplies below.

Thanks for stopping by today, remember to head over to the Case Study blog to see what the other designers have created. Hope to see some of your creations pop up in the next couple days too.

SSS This Is The Life Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!

Hi everyone! Welcome to my stop on the Simon Says Stamp "This is the Life" Blog Hop!

"This is the Life" is a fun and summery release full of stamps, dies and stencils! You can see the entire collection HERE.

To start things off, I have the More Sketchy Banners Stamps which go with our original Sketchy Banner Dies. We've updated our greetings so you can have MORE!

I've paired up my greeting with the Ice Cream Cone Parade Die… because everyone likes ice cream when they're feeling down... right?

The Diamond Circle stencil went so well with the pattern paper and adds great texture for a white on white background.

Next up is one of my favorite stamp set with several dies. This is Road Trip!

The stamp set has everything you need for summer fun and vacation cards. 
Don't forget your luggage!

I've shot a video of how to make my first card, and a little explanation of the second. Enjoy!
