CASE Study 4th Anniversary Hop


It’s the 4th Anniversary of the CASE Study Challenge!

If you’d like to be eligible for the prizes being given away, leave me a comment! Commenting will be open until next Tuesday 11:59 pm EST.

There’s also a challenge for the same length of time and you are invited to CASE this project, as well as the one my CASE is based on!

My project is inspired by this design by Aga. I love all the white space, clean black lines, and droplets of color!


I fell in love with the color of droplets she used, but have no idea what color or medium it was… I tried to custom mix my own using an assortment of color mists, but I couldn’t quite match it and ended up with a more limey hue than the chartreuse I was aiming for.  Aaaah, well.  The flower by Savvy Stamps is one of my all-time favorites!

Below is a list of all the CASE Study hoppers for today–be sure to visit and see what they’ve created! Lots of eye candy! :)

Thanks for stopping by!



Altenew Blog Hop


Hey, hello, how are ya’?! :)

The winners will be selected and announced on Monday July 14th at 9:00 am EST!

But, wait, there is more!  :)

I will choose a winner from comments left on this post and the prize will be two stamps sets of your choice. I will draw and announce a winner on Wednesday July 16th.


Now, on to sharing! I’m sure you were agog over Debby Hughes‘ fab design before arriving here! Awesome!

I’m honored to be playing along today and this design may look more complicated than it really is. ;)

Scroll down for a speedy video that shows the card’s creation in progress and how to get this effect.




See what I mean? Easier than it looks!

The next stop on this hop is the wondermous:

Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of the hop!


Rainbows & Gold Hearts



Lately, I can’t seem to get enough of these colors… or gold… *happy sigh* Laura Bassen inspired!

In the past, I’ve always applied multiple ink colors to a larger block, misted and stamped, but I hadn’t tried one color at a time until now. LOVE!!!

Any water-based dye ink pads, such as the Distress Pads or Mini Pads, Distress Markers, or Adirondack Ink Pads will work well for this. Because of all the water that gets misted, I recommend sticking with watercolor paper for optimal results; other papers can’t handle that amount of water. Ask me how I know… ;)

Hope your week is going well!
