CASE study #52 - CASEing our players
Thursday, August 11, 2011
Hello! Thanks to everyone who took part in the CASE Study Anniversary Blog Hop, you made it very special for us! This week at CASE Study we are CASEing our players!! It was hard to pick just one but I had a recent card of one of our players in my favorites folder. My chosen player is Karin Akesdotter (AKA Peppermintpatty), here's her fab card!
I love Karin's work, I'm always inspired by something when I visit her blog. I fell in love with this sweet star banner card of hers. I just adore the way she topped the stars with sweet flowers and pearls. The polka dots and fab twine complete with bows are wonderful. I love the layout of this card so I chose to CASE that, I reduced the number of stars and added some shabby flowers.
I traced the shape of a chipboard star I had to make three stars from card and stamped them using Text-It from Waltzingmouse Stamps in Memento Danube Blue ink. I rubbed the edges with some white acrylic paint. I punched a hole in the top of each star to thread it on my twine.
I embossed some green paper with the woodgrain embossing folder and rubbed some paint over bits of it to highlight some details. The sentiment is from Fancy Phrases by Waltzingmouse Stamps.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I did rub the tops with some white acrylic paint... I was in a painty mood!! : )
Check out the CASE Study blog to see what my teamies came up with and whose cards they CASEd! Enjoy the rest of your week!! It's wet and windy here, getting darker in the evening... starting to feel Autumnal!!
