Today I have some exiting news!! I have been asked to guest design for the month of January over at CASE study challenge blog!
At CASE study, every month a new muse (an awesome designer) is chosen, and their cards are used as inspiration. For each challenge, the design team and the guest designer create an art project showcasing how they were inspired. This month, the muse is the super talented Amber Kemp-Gerstel from Damask Love!! Not only is she an amazing card maker, she is also awesome at tons of other things! You should definitely check out her website to see what I mean 🙂
Here is the first card of the month:
Oooh! aaah! right? What not to love about this card? The design of this card is so brilliant, down to the little heart in “adore”! I knew right away that I wanted to create a card with cascading image as the focal point. After several attempts at stamping (I am quite terrible at random stamping) I decided to take a different approach. Here is what I made:
I created the graded panel by applying ink onto white card stock using an ink applicator. I then applied little scattered dots using bisque and silver liquid pearls, and white enamel. I backed the panel on a piece of gold metallic paper and adhered to card base using foam dots. I also die cut a little star out of the same metallic paper and put it in place of “a”.
This card was a little difficult to photograph given all the shiny surfaces, but I promise you, it looks really nice in person 🙂
If you know me, sometimes I can’t stop at one card, so here I made another card with the same design but different color:
I hope you can join in the fun! I think Amber’s card is too pretty to pass up! 🙂 and don’t forget to head over to CASE study blog to see what the design team has created.
