Is that a tulip posing as a poppy..?


Happy Friday-Eve, Peeps!!!!

Yeah, yeah, y'know the drill, right? Friday-Eve means a new CASE study... But wait! It's also a new month (Man, November already?!) and so we have the added fun of a new muse to CASE!

So who's inspiring us this month? Well let me introduce to you Kryssi Ng! Oh you're in for such a treat this month with Kryssi's creations; I wish I could spill the beans and share them all here now, but I'll resist temptation and just give you a peek of what we're CASEing this week :)

Check out the original post of this card here!

Ooooh check out those gorgeous delicate colours, the perfect blending of those inks and the fabulous use of a negative die cut *swoon*

I went on a bit of a creative diversion from Kryssi's beauty:

Thank You

My inspiration started with Kryssi's use of that Hero Arts Poppy Stamp. I decided to purchase the digital version of Hero Art's Botanical Tulips (a total bargain at $0.99!) and play. Now I know this isn't a tulip, but I personally think this open tulip looks just like a poppy to me *wink*. November is a time when there's poppies-a-plenty around here as we pause to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for us today so this card seems kinda fitting right now (have I convinced you yet that it's a poppy BTW?!)

Well poppy or no poppy, be sure to check out how Kryssi inspired the rest of the most fabulous CASE study DT:

Iwona Palamountain (Chupa)
Andrea Ewen
Clare Buswell
Debby Hughes
Teresa Kline
Cristina Kowalczyk
Jean Martin
Julie Smith (taking a break but feel free to leave some love!)
Teneale Williams
Kryssi Ng (November's Muse)

So c'mon and join in the fun? It's easy-peasy to be inspired by Kryssi's card and we'd love to see your own take on it! All levels of crafty peeps are encouraged to play along and share the inspiration :)

Right, that's all from me today! I dunno about you but I'm totally ready for the weekend after my first week back at work. I'm kicking off my weekend with a dinner to attend with my guy for his work....I'll confess that the free dinner and free bar made this function a mandatory one for me attend *grin*

Hope you all have a super weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by here today :)

Catch ya later!

Well I'm totally convinced it's a poppy lol. I adore the embossing plate you've been using lately -it's so rustic and understated and I love that. Is it PTI? A beautiful card for you to case and you did an ace job.
Have a fab weekend.
