I know this for a fact...


Hey!

Happy Friday-Eve! :)

After taking a li'l break, I can go back to celebrating Friday-Eve in the usual style:

CASE Study style!

We've got a new muse on board with us as we enter July (seriously? July already?!) and we're so happy to welcome Kristii Lockart!!

Check out this sweet card of Kristii's and get studying, fellow CASE Studiers!


The original post of this card can be found here.

I chose to focus on the soft blue background of stars for my own take on Kristii's card:

Amazing

A negative oval die-cut was used as a stencil as I stamped my stars in yellow ink and dusted yellow chalk over the top. I stamped the sentiment after this, as if I did it before applying my chalk, it wouldn't retain the crisp black-ness.

I'm also going to enter this card into the Moxie Fab World: Stamp It! Cards Week: The Congratulations Challenge.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the CASE Study DT whipped up. We're so happy to have Andrea Ewen back on board with us! Welcome back, Andrea! We missed you! :)

Amy Wanford (You're here!)

Here's hoping you can find some time to study with us this week!

Thanks so much for stopping by here today!

Catch ya later!

Thanks, Aimes...it's fabulous to be back! Your card is amazing, I'll have to agree with that! Such clean lines and that sentiment is perfect!

I love when you mask, Duchess...though there is only one layer, it looks so dimensional. Now that's at least 2 things you have to teach me when you come :) EEK! It's July and that means you are off soon! Any fun plans for the summer? Going to or avoiding the Olympics, weddings, designing more fabulous stamps, trip to BC? Hugs!
