Happy Friday-Eve! :)
I'm doing a double today with this card as it's time for a new CASE Study and it's also the week I get to share some sneaky peeks of the Clearly Besotted Stamps April release (check out day one here.)
But first, the studying. It's a new month, which means we have a new muse on board to CASE - yay! This month we're CASEing Jacyln Miller! I first 'met' Jacyln when we were both in the final rounds of Gallery Idol 2011 and have been a fan of her creative ideas ever since. :)
So today's card is inspired by studying this card of Jaclyn's:
Check out the original post of this card here.
I think it's pretty easy to see what inspired me from Jaclyn's card. The clean and simple design, the pops of red, the layout, and the touch of sparkle. I took those elements, inked up a new CBS set - Design a Tree - and got busy! This tree stamp set is adorable and I love that the hearts are already arranged as a singular stamp to decorate the tree - it makes it soooooo easy to play with!
- The bottom third of the card uses CBS' Tree Landscape Die. I die cut it from vellum and simply chopped off the trees to create a new style landscape that's treeless.
- The little red heart stamped next to the sentiment helps to balance the design. The sentiment looked a little lost without it.
- I added a fine line of glitter to the top of my die cut landscape using a glue pen and some fine, white glittler. It adds a touch more definition to the vellum panel and coordinates with the sparkly hearts. :)
Wanna play along with us over at CASE Study? Sure you do! Pop across to CASE Study HQ for the full deets of the challenge and to get a good dose of eye candy courtesy of the DT including our guestie for the month, Catherine Pooler.

I think that's enough babbling from me for today. I'll be back tomorrow with yet another CBS sneaky peek - I hope you can join me!
