CASE Study Anniversary Blog Hop

I was so tickled when Iwona asked me to join in the CASE Study first year anniversary hop, so of course I said “yes!”. If you got here from the amazing Andrea Ewen’s blog, you’re right on track. If not, why don’t you double back to the CASE Study Blog and the beginning? So you don’t miss anything. Just sayin’… ;-)

The challenge is to CASE any card made by any member of the DT, so I started looking. I really loved the simplicity of this card by
Amy Wanford:

Ribbon Banner

And here’s my CASE of Amy’s card. I didn’t keep mine quite as simple as Amy’s but I think you can see the inspiration. 

CASEStudyhop_2011aug4

I’m using MFT’s Banner Day Die-namics dies and the Typewriter Alphabet stamp set for my banner (the heart is from Well Worn Greetings). I did some extreme distressing and added some bling, and that’s it!

Thanks so much for stopping by! The next stop on the hop is the super talented Cindy Lee! I’ll see you there! 

~Supplies~ 
Stamps: Typewriter Alphabet, Well Worn Greetings (MFT)
Paper: Hot Fudge (MFT); Lost and Found: Union Station 6 x 6 pad (MME)
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa; Tea Dye Distress Ink (Ranger)
Accessories/tools: Vagabond (Tim Holtz); Banner Day Die-namics (MFT); bling, twine
