Hey, Hello and Hi dear friends,
Welcome to the second week of CASE Study Anniversary Blog Hop.
Last week was so much fun with plenty of past designers and muses participating. I am sure you have enjoyed hopping and got inspired. Did you play along too? This week is no different. We have a big lineup of designers participating in the blog hop. I am one of the lucky one on the list. Yay!
Now, you should have come from the gorgeous and talented Maureen Merritt‘s blog. If not, I have a list of designers participatig later on in the post.
My CASE muse today is Laura Bassen. I LOVE her style of clean and simple card with vibrant colours which make big impact. I am a huge fan of her. Her videos are so much fun not just to watch how she does her cards but to listen to her chat. I enjoy all her videos. There is this card of Laura’s below which she recently made for Simon Says Stamp using the new SSS stencil. I am CASEing this card today. Here is Laura Bassen’s card here on her blog.
I cannot take my eyes off the beautiful colourful background. What an impact it makes on the card? Then the simple combination of die cut and stamped sentiment completes it all. Brilliant. Inspired by that, I made mine.
I have created the similar vibrant colourful background using Funky Floral stencil from MFT and distress inks. I trimmed the card panel about 1/8″ smaller than the card front. I had this white frame on my desk. This is the negative after die cutting the centre rectangle using PPP die. I mounted this on the stenciled panel using foam adhesives. I die cut few of the big Thanks, a die from Simon Says Stamp using black cardstock and one from black glitter paper. I stacked and glued them for some dimension. I then adhered it across the frame. Finally, I have a few 6mm and 4mm Onyx sequins scattered and glued. Here is a closeup.
Hope I have inspired you to try some vibrant colourful background using stencils. Your next stop is to the queen of CAS style cards Donna Mikasa
