I am so lucky to have today off. Once a month, I get a day off in the middle of the week (because I worked the weekend previously). I have been making cards using all my new stencils. I was looking online for inspiration and came across Julie Smith's blog Paper and Such. I absolutely fell in love with that tree of hers. I had similar dies and decided to CASE her. I believe in giving credit where it is due...so thank you so much Julie.
My budding tree die is from Memory Box, the dies are from Lawn Fawn and the sentiment die is from Simon Says Stamps. I layered the focal point mat on pink cs and then pink vellum. For the base, I used Tim Holtz Bubble Stencil with HA cup o' Joe ink and large dauber. I made a top folding card, which I normally don't do, but see so many crafters doing it. I am loving using Neenah Solar White CS.
I am entering this into three challenges. Shopping our Stash 136 Theme is Cabin Fever. It's not what you think. It's to make a card that represents outside. It could be sports, birds, trees, etc. Lovely idea. And my first time to play in their challenge. The second challenge is Colour Q 226. I just love these colors. It could be baby girl, anniversary, spring... To me you can't go wrong with pink. Of course, this coming for a mom of three girls and one granddaughter! And finally Mod Squad Challenge Blog where we are to CASE another designer.
