CASE Study #140

Thursday, May 9, 2013

It's week two at CASE Study with Maile Belles as our muse, check out her spectacular inspiration card this week. Isn't it just stunning!

I CASEd the kraft base, floral focal point and basic layout. I loved the black and white look but I opted to add some color to my card.

I used the gorgeous Apple Blossom stamp from Vintage Garden Flowers by Waltzingmouse Stamps. I made a mask and stamped the flowers twice directly onto the kraft and then several times onto some white cardstock to make up the layers. I cut out various sections and colored them using Distress Markers - Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Crushed Olive, Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint. The Satin Ribbon is from Craft Fairy. The sentiment is from Vintage Garden - Seed Packet from Waltzingmouse Stamps.

The kraft color cardstock (No.1) I used is from the Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection by Core'dinations and I partially embossed it using Ebossalicious Petite Dot from Crafter's Companion and rubbed it with a white ink pad. The green base (Peeled Paint) is cardstock from the Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress Collection also from Core'dinations. I also made a matching envelope using some pink (Victorian Velvet) cardstock from the same Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress Collection.

I was sent this really cool envelope maker to try out, it's called the Kreate-a-Lope Envelope Maker, it's a simple template and it's very quick and easy. You can simply tear around the template but because I used a slightly heavier cardstock I chose to score and cut but it was still very quick. You can check out a video tutorial on how to use it on their website.

Don't forget to check out the creations from the rest of the CASE Study design team. Have a great day! Oh I think Chupa may have some fabulous news to share soon!! : )
