Today is new day (to CASE Maile Belles!)

today is a new day

Apologies for the delay for this scheduled post - seems like Blogger is up to its tricks again *grrr*!

I'm zooming by super quick today to share a card for the new CASE Study challenge today. I'm sure you need no reminders that we have the fabulous Maile Belles to CASE this month - yay!

Here's the beauty up for CASEing:

You can check out the original post of this card here.

Mmmmmm kraft, black and cream - almost as scrummy as cookies and cream when it comes to colour combos. This, and Maile's layout were the features I took as inspiration for my own card today.

tips and tricks
  • Want to get that twine to behave and sit prettily? Then add a couple of extra small dots of Glossy Accents to secure it.
  • In order to get a good, even impression with my larger cling stamps, I like to ink my stamp and leave it face up. I then place my cardstock over the top and rub my hand over the top to get even inking.
Now c'mon and be sure to play along with us! I'm pretty sure you'll find even more mojo-boosting inspiration from the awesome CASE Study DT.

Wishing you all a wonderful Friday-Eve! I'll be back soon to update the post with the products I used for today's card and links to the CASE Study DT. For now, I urge you to take a peek on the CASE Study blog (and FB page too!) to keep updated and join in the fun! :)

As always, thanks so much for visiting this little corner of Blogland today!
