Case Study Challenge #172

Hello again.  This is my last post as Guest Designer for December over at  CASE Study Challenge.  Its been really fun!  Time to recover from Christmas!

We are continuing to honor the wonderful Cath Edvalson from Moxie Fab World and her influence on the paper crafting community.  

This week's inspiration is so sweet.  Can you imagine the work that went into those cookies!!!



 I can't lie - this one had me stumped.  I had several ideas, but nothing would come together.  I tried watercoloring and a few different stamp sets.  Finally, I looked at the picture again and it reminded me of my grandmother.  She used to crochet doilies and embroider flowers on pillow cases.  She would have loved these cookies :)



Hands down, the most time consuming and tedious card I have ever made!  But I'm really happy with the result.

Enjoy!

Amy

CASE Study Challenge #171

This is my third post as a Guest Designer at CASE Study Challenge  for December.  How can it already be the third Thursday in December????  Eeek!  So much to do in so little time!

All December, we are honoring Cath Edvalson from Moxie Fab World and her influence on the paper crafting community.  

This week's inspiration is AMAZING!  I admit that I am a bit of a bird freak -  LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!


Here's my take:



Over the summer, I fell in love with this patterned paper from Studio Calico.  I heat embossed stripes with clear embossing  powder and colored in the flowers on the sections not embossed.  I couldn't figure out what to do with it until I saw this week's inspiration photo.

Merry Christmas!

Enjoy!

CASE Study Challenge #170

Its that time again!  I'm a Guest Designer over at CASE Study Challenge  for December.

This month, we are honoring the fabulous Cath Edvalson from Moxie Fab World and her influence on the paper crafting community.  

I love the simple design and colors of this cupcake. (The design actually reminds me of my wedding cake - apropos with today being my anniversary :)




So here's what I came up with:




The glitter snowflake background was made using Be Creative tape attached to card stock.  I die cut the tape side with the Impression Obsession snowflake die and covered the design with Glitter Ritz glitter in Stardust and Warm Highlight.  It is very tedious with all those tiny pieces, but the result is so pretty!

Have a great week!
