Technically, my son's wedding is today as it's 1 a.m. and I am wide awake, unable to sleep. Too many thoughts and memories running through my head, most of them remembering the little boy who wouldn't leave my side for the first few years of his life. It is hard to imagine that he is getting married today...a grown man who now will have a family of his own. Rather than tossing and turning, I decided to get up and try to make a card for a challenge that I have really been enjoying, CASE Study. Each week you have an inspiration photo by a talented designer "Muse" and you can make any kind of card you want depending upon how you are inspired. Lots of fun, lots of ways to interpret each sketch. This week's sketch (#137) is again by JJ Bolton. I have really enjoyed her CAS style and use of great techniques with die cuts.
Here is this week's inspiration photo:
I was inspired by JJ's use of white cardbase, color, and her stamping through a die cut. It is hard to see in my little picture, but if you check out JJ's original post of this card, there is a little clear tab next to the word "you" that you pull and the globe fills in with colorful beads. The colors are so pretty, so Spring-like, I decided to color up a really pretty label stamped though a Spellbinder Labels #25 die. Waltzingmouse Stamps Folk Art Labels #25 is such a pretty stamp set, requires little shading (my kind of coloring) and also has some places to put a little bling.
Here is my card:
