One for the younger generation...


Well it's two-for-one here on the blogeroo on this Friday-Eve as today's card is for a new CASE Study and also gives another sneak peek of a Clearly Besotted Stamp set that's available to purchase tonight at 10pm BST.

Firstly, let's get knuckled down to the CASE studying. So it's June already and that means we have a new muse on board to admire an inspire us. This month's muse is the fabulous Pamela Ho! I'm a real fan of Pamela's work and I'm really looking forward to CASEing her creations this month!

Up for studying this week is this iconic card:

Check out the original post of this card here. 

If you don't recognise this card already, where have you been? I remember this graphic beauty featured all over Blogland and Pinterest. What a fabulous design!

So, pushed for time still with a fabulous new stack of CBS stamps to play with, I was guided by Pamela's striking colour combination with those pops of pink. It was the perfect excuse to ink up the set, 'Text Me' - a set that is going to see a lot of ink where my nieces and nephews are concerned! :)

tips and tricks
  • When it comes to very CAS designs it's important to stamp with accuracy. To stamp the phone centrally with speed, I stamped on a larger piece of card that I could trim down. My Tim Holtz ruler is fabulous for this quick trick.
  • To ensure the little icons were evenly spaced and straight I put them together on one acrylic block to create one stamp. I then tested this stamp to make sure I was happy with it before stamping them on the card. 
It's an ultra-CAS design but I'd like to argue that it still packs a punch *wink*.

Be sure to check out the full deets of the challenge over at CASE Study HQ and feast your eyes on some seriously mojo-boosting creations from the design team including our guest designer, Jacquie Southas!

Oooh and of course I recommend you hop across to Stephanie's too for a final reveal of the new CBS release that will be available to purchase from 10pm BST tonight!

Thanks for checkin' in today!
