Rarely do I combine challenges, but this time it seemed to work for me. I love the beautiful projects and inspiration I get from both Color Throwdown, and CASE Study.
Laura Bassen's inspiration for CASE Study Challenge #84:
Isn't she amazing? I love everything she creates. And my color choice came from:
And this is my card that was inspired by these two:
Although Color Throwdown gets full credit for inspiring the color scheme, I took a lot of license with it and decided to make one more card with a few of the remaining die cuts. This time, a little more true to the spirit of the challenge.
Laura frequently uses really interesting applications of die cuts, especially in the negative as in her sample above. I had a lot of fun playing around with Mat Stack #3 and Flower Fusion, making some positive cuts and others negative. Popping one up on foam adhesive and gluing another flat. Unfortunately, you really can't appreciate much of that here, just trust me that there are a variety of layers!
Additionally, Jean, from My Stamping and Beading Therapy, has nominated me for another Leibster Award. What a special honor! Leibster, is a German word meaning "beloved, dearest or favorite" and this award is shared only among those of us with 200 or fewer followers. I truly appreciate that she and I are becoming "online friends" through this passion for paper crafting. Part of the honor is to pass it along to five others who are encouraging me and others through their sweet comments as well as inspiring us with their own beautiful projects. So I gladly pass this honor on to:
Lisa, My Paper Tales
These five ladies create and write some of my new favorite blogs. Please stop by each of their blogs and let them know how much you like what you see there! They will love it!
