Limited Supplies...


Well if you're reading this - thank you so much for stopping by! I know I've been MIA recently but things are starting to settle down a bit now so I should be whippin' round Blogland like no body's business soon :)

Now back to the normal routines with Friday Eves here on the blog.....

So I've had a li'l vacation from the fun over on CASE study: I've missed joining in the fun with those fabulous ladies on the CASE study DT and it was CASE study that motivated me to rescue what supplies I could get my inky mitts on and get busy!

So without further ado, let's check out our lovely new muse for April - Silke Ledlow! And here is the beauty of a card up for CASEing this week:

You can check out the original post with this super card here!

So what did I CASE? Well with limited supplies I was totally hooked on the colour combo and grid pattern DP. However, as my DP is imprisoned somewhere I stamped it instead!

Many Thanks

Why a bike? Well, why not? It was love at first sight when I spotted this beauty of a stamp at the Hobbycrafts show a couple of weeks ago. Gotta 'fess up that it's one of a few stamps I have on hand to use at the moment! I even had to resort to using a clear CD case instead of an acrylic block - ha!

Tip: Corner Chomper imprisoned in a box somewhere? Never fear, rounded corners are still here with the aid of drawing around a coin on the corners of your card :)

Many Thanks

Apologies for the poor pics: I'm yet to find a decent spot to take pics of my creations!

So if I can create a CASE from such limited supplies, I'm pretty sure you lot could whip up something totally fabulous for the challenge! This week's sponsor is The Stamping Boutique so c'mon and join the fun!

And of course, I urge you to feast your eyes upon what the rest of the the most fabulous CASE study DT created to inspire ya:

Iwona Palamountain (Chupa)
Andrea Ewen
Cristina Kowalczyk
Jean Martin
Julie Smith
Lenet Mos

OK, a couple more days at work and then I'm totally blitzin' those boxes and setting my inky goodies free! :D

Catch ya later!

HAHAHA oh your poor imprisoned supplies! I totally understand how hard it must be to know that they're somewhere there longing for your attention :D
Good luck blitzin' them soon, and for now, let me just say that no limit of supplies is scaring your mojo off! Fabulous card!

Welcome back! Glad you have resurfaced but you have shamed me. If you can make such an awesome card with such limited supplies than I clearly am just a lazy git! LOL! Must get off behind, stop making excuses and get crafty! Thanks for the inspiration and have fun setting up your crafty goodies this weekend.

Maureen said...

hey, I thought I missed commenting on this!! You ROCK the limited supplies challenge!! I often wonder if I have too many, too many to use, too many to forget...sometimes less is best (unless it's buttons! hee). Hope the move went well and you find your chomper soon...although I LOVE what you used here! LOL Big hugs :)

Terri said...

Andrea Ewen said...

I love a bike, Aimes! Reminds my just as much of a pending Spring as butterflies do! Who rides their bike around in the snow? Great job on the CASE, love your wide open white spaces and simple, yet gorgeous, sentiment. Glad to have you back, my friend, Rock on!

Jean Martin said...

Oh wow for someone with boxed up supplies you did so well! This is a beautiful CAS Aimes!!! :)

Happy to see you stamping again! Moving came be such a hassle. It's such fun finding things in boxes, that it's almost like new treasures. Love your bike stamp!
