Every month I’m astounded by two things a) that it’s the start of a new month already and b) the utter awesomeness of the new CASE Study muse! This month is no exception; I mean seriously March already and oh my Joni Nina Andaya! March is going to be a good month, not only is Joni silly talented but her photos are to die for too! Here’s this week’s inspiration to get us started:
Bold stripes, subtle yellow background, labels and banners – GORGEOUS! I misted some stripes through a Kelly Purkey stencil and then layered some patterned paper, a label and some vellum stars. I stamped part of my sentiment onto the label and then completed the sentiment with the die cut ‘you’ A yellow/grey combination still makes me smile big LOL.
I’m keeping it short and sweet today! Lots of things on the crafty to do list combined with the youngest’s birthday soon! However, for lots more inspiration please pop by the CASE Study blog and see the teams creations as well as Joni’s version of her own card. Not only that but we have two guests this month! Give a big CASE Study welcome to Sarah Gough and Kate Lorenzini!
Supplies: Stamps – Simon Says Stamp hello you; Dies – Simon Says Stamp you, labelled with love, Clearly Besotted Stamps superstar; Ink – Simon Says Stamp black; Stencil – Kelly Purkey all in a line; Card – Neenah solar white 110lb, Bazzill marshmallow chick, 40lb vellum; Paper – Studio Calico wanderlust; Mists – Mister Huey’s clay, double yellow; Enamel Dots – Dear Lizzy daydreamer; Label - Elle’s Studio ‘Serendipity’ Lil’ Snippets
The lighting is slightly off in these photos – I think my camera was in shock from all the bright colours LOL! I absolutely love Fuchsias and have two plants in my garden – they provide such a lovely pop of colour and mine last well into the autumn too :) So I was delighted when I saw the new Fabulous Fuchsias set from Clearly Besotted Stamps :)
I chose a rainbow of Simon Says Stamp inks and happily inked up the individual images which constitute the whole flower. For two of the large blooms I popped the flowers up by stamping onto their matching die cut. Then for a little sparkle I ran a Zig wink of stella glitter pen over the pink areas and a dot of stickles on the stamens :)
The sentiments in the set have a great font combination and seeing as I am woefully short of birthday cards at the moment I chose that sentiment and nestled it in amongst the flowers :) Finally I mounted the panel over one of the new Simon Says Stamp card stock colours – Doll Pink, which matches their ink perfectly :)
Good morning! I’m here today looking at the Lovely Labels set from Clearly Besotted Stamps going live tomorrow :) Such an absolute staple set and not long to wait now until you can order! I seem to white heat emboss everything onto vellum at the moment and yes, couldn’t resist again today LOL. I like how the translucency peeks the pattern paper tags underneath. I then added a sentiment from another new set; Take Flight which has some really cute air transport images but also some great sentiments too. For the sentiment I used one of the Tag Along dies and then added a patterned paper heart using a die from Once Upon A Time :)
This tag is actually for a challenge; the lovely Evgenia Petzer contacted me a while ago and asked if she could feature one of my cards in her Russian challenge blog, Scrap Lifting! Of course I was delighted and Evgenia picked this card to challenge her team:
So for my tag I used the same ideas of layered patterned papers of different widths, vellum, a collection of items top left, stitching, loose threads and sequins :) I hope you will pop over to see the cards the team made – seriously stunning! You can check it all out here :)
I will be back tomorrow with one more look at another new Clearly Besotted Stamps set before the release goes live tomorrow evening UK time :). Hope you will join me then :)

I’m here today for a look at another of the new releases from Clearly Besotted Stamps going live on March 5th :) Good Times is a set which well, just makes you feel good! With its bike and basket add-on with a variety of basket fillers too, it just harks back to an age where we took time to enjoy life :)
To keep with a light and airy feel I white heat embossed the bike onto a vellum circle and the sentiment onto a piece of card coloured with a grey Copic. Those were layered over a pocket card from Dear Lizzy’s Daydreamer pack and I added some of the matching enamel dots too. Simple & clean and quick & easy too :D
