Love for black, gold, and chevrons...

xoxo title

Well I've been hanging around here so much this week that I bet you're sick of me by now LOL! Don't worry, Friday-Eve marks the final post of this week (I'm taking Friday off - ha!) and it marks the start of a fabulous new CASE Study.

Not only do we have a new CASE Study, we also have a new muse to CASE as we enter the month of February (Seriously. How did February creep up on me so fast?!)

So. Drum roll please. This month's muse is the super duper Danielle Flanders! I know! How exciting, right? :D

Well Danielle certainly helped my mojo get into gear, and I think she will with yours too because check out these beauties of hers up for CASEing:

Check out the original post of these cards here.

My heart skipped a beat upon seeing Danielle's cards. I just could not resist the chance to indulge in yet more gold (thanks to some Cricut Iron On Glitter Gold material - again no ironing yet, but still lovin' it. It takes a lot for me to get the iron out LOL!) and a cool chevron pattern (thanks to some Fancy Pants patterned paper).

tips and tricks
  • The heart and arrow are actually spares, cut from previous projects. I always keep little shapes like this in a tin and it can feel like new stash when you open that tin a bit later! 
  • My arrow shape cut from the Southwest Cricut cartridge was originally white, but I coloured it with a black Promarker to change it.
  • To help centralise the design I made sure that the chevrons end evenly at each side of the card.
  • I like to cut into chevron patterned paper to make the most out of those zig zags. If I'd have simply cut a straight line across that chevron paper, it wouldn't blend into the design as well.
I'm pretty sure you're gonna be inspired already by Danielle's cards to play along with us, but for that extra mojo-boost be sure to pop across to CASE Study and see what everyone else created. We also have a couple of guesties on board with us month to. We're thrilled to welcome May Park and my CBS teamie, Caryn Davies! :)

Had enough of me yet? Thought so. I'm signing off for this week now. Thanks so much for popping by today and this week. Your visits are always appreciated and loved. :)
