CASE Study 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop!


I'm so happy to be joining the festivities over at CASE Study for their 2nd Anniversary! I was one of their muses earlier this year, so the lovey Chupa asked me to be a part of the hop :)

If you didn't get here via Maureen, you can go back to the beginning.

The challenge is "Think Out of the Box," and make something you normally wouldn't make.  Since everything I make is clean and simple, I decided to push myself and make a vintage card.  (I tried to channel my inner Kim Duran!)

----CARD REMOVED FOR PUBLICATION----


I still stuck with what I was comfortable with (white card base!) then ventured into new territory with muted colors, lots of layers, and "stuff" (doily, hand icon, stitching, mini clothespin).  I used paper from the gorgeous Everyday Eclectic collection from Echo Park (I'm winking at you, Amy!)

I really like it- kinda like a CAS vintage.  

Your next stop on the hop is Laurie.  Run along now....

  11. Oh Jennifer! I was just going through my reader and saw your card with that gorgeous paper. It totally caught my eye, but then noticed my name above your photo. How sweet of you to CASE my card! What a surprise! Your card is so pretty too. I love the stitching and all the embellishments...the doily, the clothespin, the banner. CAS vintage perfection!

  47. You know something, I was more than a little worried at being so very late to this blog hop - my children and my health have been getting in the way (my children can keep me busy any time my health is a different matter lol)
    And well I'm finally here - and after looking at your beautiful creations honey, I am very glad to be a little late.
    You have some fabulous things here on your blog - wow!! Such creativity and talent and it's been a very enjoyable visit.
    Huge hugs,
