CASE challenge 6 – the invisible card

Week 6 on the CASE challenge is a fab idea of an invisible card that we saw done by Ann Clemmer, aka Stamper Dog, more info here.  While I love her cute snowman, I didn't want to start on Christmas cards just yet.  (Don't get me wrong, we've been making Christmas cards in my weekly classes since the start of September, but I haven't blogged on Christmas yet.  I think that may all change soon!)  Anyway, I found it an interesting challenge to see how I could CASE this card without simply copying it but coming up with my [...]

CASE challenge 5 – half-door fold

Week 5 on the CASE challenge is a fancy fold inspired by the amazing Terri Gaines, who is Stampin' Up!'s latest million sales achiever, check her out here.  I just love her design, but decided to do something a bit different with my version of the half-door fold. I started with a card base of Basic Black cardstock, and used some of the simply spectacular Broadway Bound Speciality DSP.  I've had this paper since the catalogue went live and I can't believe I haven't opened it before now!  It is truly gorgeous, and I just know I'll be using it [...]

I chose the stamp set Lift me Up, which always reminds me of Bristol and the hot air balloon festival.  Most of the balloons were stamped in Pool Party, but I stamped an extra [...]

CASE challenge 3 – glitter stained glass

Can you believe we're already on week 3 of our CASE challenge?  This week was my choice, and I was so wow'ed by Dawn Griffith's beautifully blingy cards that I knew I had to try it for myself and try the glitter stained glass technique. It was so much fun!  I chose the Eastern Beauty stamp set as it has nice open spaces for colouring, plus coordinating framelits for easy cutting round the shape.  I took a while to decide on colours, as I have so many favourite combinations with this set, but I wanted to choose colours that [...]
