Fun with flowers (of the graphic kind!)


Happy Friday Eve, Peeps! Can you taste the sweet weekend approaching? I can for sure :)

So let's get the party started with a brand new CASE study for ya:

And we've got a li'l extra 'fizz' for this party on CASE study as we have a brand new muse for this month! I'm so excited to spill the beans, along with the rest of the CASE study DT, and introduce the fabulous Dawn Woleslagle - the fabulous lady behind WPlus9 Design Studio LLC stamps - as our muse for July!

Ok time to party on with this fabby card of Dawn's up for CASEing this week:

You can check out the original post of this card here

Oh I just know that I'm gonna have inky fun CASEing Dawn this month *grin*

And after tearing open some new inky goodies, I came up with a pretty CAS and graphic CASE:


I'm so happy to finally have my inky mitts on Modern Basics from PTI. There's so many inky possibilities with that sweet set; I think I spent a good hour just stamping random patterns on scrap paper :) I had to think outta the box a little when stamping the flower stems - it's actually a side of one of the frame stamps from the Waltzingmouse Stamps set, Frame-It.

But enough of me gushing on how much I love that set or how I created flower stems, it's now time to show what you can come up with and join in the fun! If you need some extra inky inspiration then be sure to check out the awesome CASE study DT:

Oh man, your take on Dawn's card is so sweet Amy. As a big fan of her work I might just have to play along!
I really like that strip of vellum...

This is beautiful Amy! The black card base really makes the purple pop. Clean, graphic, and beautiful.
