CASE Study 4th Anniversary Blog Hop


I'm so excited and honored to be participating in the 4th Anniversary festivities for CASE Study!  Chupa has put together a fabulous celebration month with lots of inspiration, hops, challenges, and prizes!  Today is the first of four amazing blog hops:)

My card today was inspired by the super sweet card maker superstar, Jennifer McGuire!  In particular, I was inspired by this card...


I love the rainbow stripes and the little dots made me (at first) think of enamel dots which eventually led to sequins.  So I wracked my brain thinking of how I could create sequin stripes.  As luck would have it, I still had this Papertrey Ink die on my craft table.  I knew this die would be perfect to make a rainbow shaker!


Among my supplies that I can't live without is my 1/4" wide foam tape.  This stuff is an absolute necessity for gluing on small die cuts and for making shakers.  You can see how it fits perfectly on the stripes.  I only had to cut it in half to fit around the edges.  


I filled each shaker well with sequins (mixed whatever I had) and applied the card base to the back.  I finished it off with a die cut "thanks" using this Lawn Fawn die.  Really so much fun!


Thanks so much for stopping in!  Don't forget to comment on each stop of the blog hop to qualify for a chance to win a prize.  The sponsors this week are Serendipity Stamps, Penny Black, and WaffleFlower (what a group!).  The giveaway closes next Tuesday at 11:59 pm EST.  Here's the full list of hoppers because you're not going to want to miss anyone!
