And now for today's news...
Today's post is special! No, no, I'm not the one celebrating 10 years of blogging, but my friend Jenn Shurkus is! WOW, 10 years! I am joining her celebration as a Party Goer by CASE-ing a card of hers. You can find more details about her celebration on her blog.
As I browsed Jenn's Pinterest and Flickr galleries, many cards caught my eye! I love her mixed media approach and how she isn't afraid to try something new or different. This is the card I decided to CASE.
How pretty is that? And so simple, too! I applied dry and heat embossing technique to my card and instead of the translucent embossing paste she used, I used black. It wasn't until I finished my card that I realized I also used the word hello! ;-)
I used Tim Holtz Bubble Stencil and added some Dreamweaver Matte Black Embossing Paste over it on the right side of the card. I set it aside to dry and then I glued a portion of gold paper doily on the bottom left, cutting off the excess. Some doilies are too big to use on an A2 card so when I discovered I could add a doily in this way, I was ecstatic. I have so many so they need to be put to use! ;-) I stamped the word 'hello' from Altenew's Super Script in VersaMark ink on vellum and heat embossed with black embossing powder. I applied it with vellum tape in the center.
Jenn had splatters of ink on her card and I decided to do a little watercoloring with colors. I used distress inks :-)
Did you know that you could play along as well?? Jenn has a lot of awesome sponsors offering great prizes. Celebrate along with us and CASE a card or project of Jenn's from her 10 years of blogging.
