FTHS March Blog Hop...CASE It!



Good morning!  It's time for From the Heart Stamps March Blog Hop; our theme this month is "CASE It"...hop along for some fabulous inspiration from the DT!


As you hop along, please leave a comment on each entry.  One random commentor will be selected on each blog to win an image of choice from Faith's store.  

If you have arrived from the From the Heart Stamps blog you are in the right place, if not why don't you start at the From the Heart Stamps blog so that you don't miss anything? 

This month we were challenged to CASE a card from our teammate...I am CASEing Ruth!  While the definition of CASE is to Copy and Share Everything, this was a challenge to create a card based on our teammate's style; instead of an exact replica, we were to use bits and pieces for inspiration.  As I looked through Ruth's FTHS creations I took note of her particular style...this is what I noted:

-Stitching
-Shaped cards
-Monochromatic
-Pearls
-Glitter
-Charms
-Vibrant coloring
-More cardstock, less patterned paper

What a fun challenge!  I was drawn to this, this, this, and this.  I love Ruth's use of white space and of course, the glitter!  I also have a huge stash of charms and thought it would be a great opportunity to use one.

The image is colored with pencils and doused with a liberal amount of glitter.  For embellishing I've cut 1/8" strips of Sookwang tape, applied them to the edges, and let the glitter fly!  Haha...not joking it was (is) everywhere!  I pulled out some twine and an Easter basket charm and...stopped myself from adding them!  With the glitter overload it just wasn't working on this card...I left if really clean and simple with lots of white space.

Ink: Printer
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select
Embellie: Art Glitter in Polar Bear, Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Sookwang Tape

Now head on over to Brenda's blog to check out her fabulous creation!

Thanks for hopping along with us today; the hop will end on Monday, March 7th at 6:00 a.m. EST.  Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps blog on Wednesday, March 9th.

Thank you for hopping along with us!

What a fab card Angela! You really took Ruth's style on board! The glitter round the edge sets off this fun image perfectly! Great colouring too - super card! :-)

Great job Angela. You really took a page out of Ruth's design book and made it your own. I like the thickened glitter lin and the colorful image with all that white space. Great work. Happy Hop!

What a great spring card! Colorful and sparkly! And I think you were right to leave it CAS rather than trying to add the charm. It's lovely exactly the way it is!

Stephanie said...

This is just fantastic! I have been working on doing CAS cards (not easy for me) but never thought of using glitter like that around the edges! Beautiful!
