Wow! Friday Eve already and I've not squeezed in half as much inky time as I'd hoped. I do have a nice reason for it though: visiting family the past couple of days on a whirlwind tour to
In fact today's card was created for my SIL's birthday yesterday and is also the card for this week's new CASE study.
As you know, a new month means a new muse on CASE study. Although I'm already missing our last muse, Sarah Martina Parker I'm still excited about June's muse. Y'see with this muse, I'm hoping to re-visit lots of stamping techniques that I haven't had fun with for a while....I hope you can join in too as we CASE creations from Jill Foster!
Check out Jill's beautiful card up for CASEing this week:
Check out the original post of this card ---> here <---
I was inspired by the colours and the way those embossed images totally 'pop' at ya!
Armed with my heat gun and some fabulous new stamps I received from The Craft's Meow, I got very inky and very messy: embossing powder and glimmer mist everywhere :)
When I said everywhere, I meant everywhere: my laptop, my jeans, my desk - absolutely splattered with sparkly Glimmer Mist!
Hard to believe that panel of aqua cardstock was originally a piece of white shimmer cardstock! I just got busy with some inks (The inks stay wet longer on the coated shimmer cardstock so blend pretty easily with your average sponge) and busy with the glimmer mist, then embossed those gorgeous fuchsias on top. It shimmers so much more IRL but you'll have to use your imagination to picture it....!
Wanna play along? I hope so! Our sponsor this week is The Craft's Meow. I was lucky enough to get a sneaky play with this gorgeous set, Celebrating You, before it was released.
You could be lucky enough to win it simply by playing along with us! Gotta say, the stamps are of fab quality: no need to 'prime' them, just peel, stick and stamp away!
Be sure to check out what the rest of the CASE study DT created with their fabulous stamps:
Iwona Palamountain (Chupa)
Jill Foster (June's Muse)
I'm scooting off now: finally, today is a day where I'm not too busy: All I've got scheduled is a much over-due haircut and the rest of the day is mine! I'm hoping that I'll finally find an afternoon to indulge in some inky therapy and a spot of Blog Hoppin'. Hope you have a lovely Friday Eve too and a fun build up to the weekend :)
Catch ya later!
