CASE Study Week 4


This is my last week with CASE Study and boy has it been a fun ride!  The DT cards and the entries every week have totally KNOCKED ME OUT!  I can't thank Chupa and the DT enough for such a wonderful month!  For my last week, Chupa has chosen a card this card that I first blogged about in this post... 



I love the airy-ness in this card and the cloud effect is one of my absolute favorites to do (as seen in this card and this card)!  So for my CASE card, the clouds were the element I wanted to carry over.  This time I did one of my favorite things to do, an interactive card!  I did a spinner card with a cute little plane stamp/die combo that I had from PTI. 


One of my pet peeves with spinner cards is the card base not match the top layer.  My card OCD kicks in when it doesn't match (crazy, I know).  So for my card, I made sure that the base layer (the card base) had matching clouds for a seamless look.  To make the clouds, I used my trusty cloud template (that I purchased here) with some Distress Inks. This is sooooo easy to do, and the look is so much fun! 

Thanks so much for stopping in today!  A HUGE THANKS to Chupa and the gals over at CASE Study!!!  It goes without saying that the talent pool over there is deep, but more importantly they are such a wonderfully kind bunch of ladies.  Thank you so much for the honor!  It's been an amazing month!  

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj

  11. Fantastic month of being a muse, JJ! It was so fun seeing the cards you inspired all over blogland. Only wish I had more time to play : (

    Totally agree with the sliders needing to match the card. I got those dies, but think I never use them because I have that huge white space in my mind whenever I look at them. Thanks for the reminder just to make them match, an easy fix!

  12. They couldn't have picked a more talented gal to CASE! Matching the layers is exactly the kind of AR/OC detail that makes your cards so freaking awesome :) Love both of these - and those clouds. On the wish list!

  16. I love that you have card OCD - I would be the same!! Really adore those clouds and that you did them in a softer hue on your CASE, and the spinner plane ups the fun for sure!! Loved seeing your amazing creations on CASE Study this month, and you really 'brought it' with your contributions too!!

  17. We have a guy local to us that flies little planes like this and in this very manner too as he is an acrobatic air display pilot!!! Very clever design JJ and the inking on the inside panel just finishes off the card perfectly :0)
