CASE Study Challenge #30

The time has come for the new challenge at CASE Study, with our Muse for March being Julee Tilman! Here's the fabulous card for Julee, that I chose for us to work with this week:

It's dreamy, isn't it? Goodness, does this girl know how to use paper & stamps or what??

For my inspired card, I chose to stamp on the patterned paper with black ink, like Julee did. It's one of my favourite techniques, and can give some really spectacular effects. I added a splash of colour with the yellow tab, and kept my card simple - just for a change ;)

Supplies: cardstock: SU! (Baja Breeze, Daffodil Delight), American Crafts (black); paper: Echo Park Paper; stamps: Gina K. Designs (sentiment), Hero Arts (flourish); ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black); twill ribbon; button; baker's twine

TIP: Try stamping on patterned paper yourself! Choose a relatively simple pattern, and a contrasting ink. Black, dark brown or blue works best.

As you might have noticed, the sketch comes from FTL130. The colours are taken from CTD132:

  3. That's probably one of the best flourish stamps I've ever seen! Leave it to you to show it off gloriously. I don't know how you do it, but I love your colorful, beautiful style! Thanks as always for playing along at the CTD!

  4. ok, well that card of Julee is a fabulous card to case- I did that one. Your card is so pretty, loving the stamping on DSP: and that sketch again is awesome. I want to try this one this week.

  5. These are beautiful! I love the colours! I think I was reading your mind when I picked the deisgn I would use for my card! Fantastic work I look forward to following and seeing what you make next!


  6. Love the beautiful flourish stamped directly to your patterned paper. And, what a delightful pop from your yellow sentiment piece. Gorgeous!

  7. love the stamp on the DS paper, so bold!! The colours are fabulous with the layout, perfectly placed pop of yellow! :)
