CASE Study 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop

Hello Hello!!

Big day today! As the title suggests, we are celebrating the 3rd year anniversary of CASE Study. I feel so honored to be a part of this, and to be among a group of super talented ladies who will be joining us in this inspiration filled blog hop!

CS 3rd anniversary

You are at the first stop, and from here you can hop along and check out the other designers and what surprises they have in store for us 🙂

Our theme for this hop is Inspiration.

Lately, when I find myself in a tough design spot, I browse through by Pinterest inspiration board to get myself started.  Thus, I decided to use Pinterest as the Inspiration for today’s cards. I also decided to have a theme for my cards; wedding. With a big family and lots of friends, I never have too many wedding cards!

The first Inspiration:

And my card:

CASE Study annv 1

click on image to see the sparkly details!

I used one of the left over feather from this card. The images in the background were embossed with Pearlescent embossing powder, which gives a very pretty subtle sparkle. The greeting is embossed in white on a strip of vellum. I think this card would be great for a winter wedding.

The second inspiration:

This one inspired me to create a wedding card with bright summery colors:

CASE Study annv 2

I used a lemon yellow card base and stamped the stripes with a slightly darker yellow ink. The “I do” and”love” are part of a washi tape. The flower is the negative parts of the tilth floral die by Memory Box.

The third and last inspiration:

Ireally like the wall decor, so I tried to create something similar for my card:

CASE Study annv 3

I used a technique that I call gradient inking to create the background image. Instead of going into wordy details of how I did it, I decided to make a video. The sentiment is stamped with Delicata gold ink, and it is a stamp from the studio calico set Heyday Sentiments.

Video (to see the Partial Inking technique only, fast forward to 4:15):

  1. Great tips & love your inspirational ideas. I just assumed your feather was a die cut until I watched your great video. What a great start to this Blog Hop!

  2. Wow Tasnim. Really lovely cards. Finding it difficult to choose my fav. Though I think I especially love the yellow wedding card.
