StampInsanity Challenge #80: The CASE of the CASEing Crafter

Greetings! Today I have two posts to share with you. If you are looking for the Pixie Dust Twilight: Breaking Dawn Blog Hop, please click HERE (after you’ve checked out this post, of course!). This post is for the newest StampInsanity challenge. We Groovy Gurlz challenge you to “find a project you love, and CASE the crap out of it!” Ooh, that’s a fun one, right?
For my project, I took a peek at my Pintrest (if you’d like to Follow me, click the red button on my sidebar). On my Inspiration Board, I had this beautiful card.
CASE
This beauty originated HERE. I am in love with everything about this card. The layout, the colors, everything. Here’s my version.

My colors are actually a little closer to the original card than it looks here. My card photographed a bit too blue.
One of the things I love most about StampInsanity, are Beth’s amazing sentiments and quotes. They are so unusual, beautiful, and thought provoking. They all give you some sort of feeling… giddy, happy, romantic, etc. This one is all about encouragement, and I love it.

I used several shades of Distress Ink to color the oval.  It doesn’t even look like it’s on white paper anymore in real life.

I used a mess of different scraps that I had, it was so much fun picking them out. Trying to coordinate them so that one wasn’t too overpowering than the rest was a bit time consuming, but I love the original so much, I think I’m going to try it in a bunch of different colors.
I hope you will play along with the Groovy Gurlz for this challenge. To get more CASEing ideas, please visit the rest of the StampInsanity team, listed in my sidebar. And be sure to stop by the SI Blog too. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
