Pssst! I'm having a little giveaway. For a chance to win some Clearly Besotted Stamp goodness comment here before the end of Friday! :)
Happy Friday-Eve! I dunno about you, but I'm really ready for the weekend; the first week back at work has left me shattered! Surely I can't be thinking of counting down to the next half term yet...? LOL!
We know what Friday-Eve means, right? Yup, a new CASE Study to knuckle down to. It's also the first CASE Study of 2014 and we've got a new muse to inspire us for January; we're welcoming on board the CAS-tastic Donna Mikasa!
So let's get to it! Get your creative brain ticking and be inspired by this wonderful card of Donna's:
Check out the original post of this card here!
I love this design. It was those wonderful letters that sparked me to try a similar thing with numbers. My numbers formed a background, but link to the focal point through the use of the same number dies.
- To make it easier to adhere all those letters, I used a Xyron sticker machine. It's great for applying a layer of adhesive to anything fiddly.
- I decorated the number 90 by covering it in Ice Stickles. Ice Stickles contain bigger, chunky glitter in comparison to the original Stickles. I like the the dimension and bling they add. :)
- In order to get the most out of creating that background, I decided to use a vellum circle for my focal point so you can still see the numbers underneath.
I'm also going to enter this card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Ice Inspiration. The white-on-white design feature and the use of frosty cold Ice Stickles makes it rude not to methinks! :)
Be sure to check out what the rest of the CASE Study DT whipped up and welcome our guestie for the month, Erin too! :D
Oh, and I really, really hope you can join in the fun with us too of course!
The tiny stars are from a random jar I had years ago! When I was younger (a lot younger!) I used to wear these with my make up....I think they look better on a card nowadays LOL!
