hello... friend

Hello!!  Our weather has turned gloomy, but not rainy... so very strange.  But with the change in the weather comes the opportunity for me to play along with some challenges.  I originally just had CASE Study and Color Throwdown in mind for this card, but I think it also works for the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge:  Dots & Spots.



I don't often play along with CASE Study (in fact I think it has been at least two years since I last played), but I really liked the inspiration card and thought I would give it a try.  I CASEd the inspiration card fairly closely up to a point and then tried to put my own spin on it. While I love this style of card (the inspiration card) I have a hard time recreating it to my satisfaction.  I'm not sure why this seems so hard to me.. I love layering stamps, but for whatever reason I always end up feeling like what I have made is too carefully planned out and not so spontaneous as the inspiration card looks.  Something to work on, I guess!  I used two different sets from Clearly Whimsy StampsHappy Everything and Happy Hello.  Both sets are full of fun little images like the starburst that I used, as well as the chevron image.   All the inks are from Stampin Up!.


Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & kraft; Stamps:  Clearly Whimsy Stamps; Inks:  Stampin Up!; Washi Tape:  Stampin Up!
