CASE Study’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop!

CASEstudyMaureenPlut

Hi there! Today I’m excited to be joining CASE Study as they celebrate their 4th Anniversary all month long. I had such a fabulous time on their Design Team which I sadly had to step down from when I started my Masters last fall.  However, I was thrilled when the lovely and talented Chupa asked me back to celebrate with such an amazing line up of designers, past Muses, past DT members and current DT members.

4thanniversary

The theme of the hop is “inspiration”. I found this gorgeous card awhile back on Pinterest and put it straight onto my “cards” board.  The card is by Lisa Spangler and you can see it HERE.  Ah, chalkboard and a super fun banner!  How could I not be inspired?

Marianne B in AZ said...

I arrived 3 days after the hop started, so I saw a couple of posts above this one. So, I can tell you really do chalkboard very well! I love seeing it done by others, like you, who are so good at it, but I have only tried it a couple of times. If I thought I could make it look half as good as you do, I would do it more often!

Absolutely adorable card! Love the little banner and the sweet hearts in the background! <3

croppinmama said...

TFS your fun card...great inspiration from Lisa Spangler, too. I love the contrast of the chalkboard pieces and colorful banner. This inspires me to use my clothespins to pin up a banner. And I noted that you're studying at Gonzaga. I have family and friends in Spokane, so that was fun to read in your profile. Hope your studies are going well and that your new school year is off to a great start. Your students must love doing art with you!

Izolda said...

Love chalkboard!! It's amazing how you mixed it with colorful elements. Awesome!

Amy C. said...

Your cards are adorable. The little mini banners are my favorite.

CanadianScraps43 said...

First of all let me say that I have never been here before and so therefore didn't know that you were Canadian as well. Yes, I have been living under a rock here in the Maritimes. Lol. Wow you are a well accomplished lady and so happy for a fellow northern gal. Lol. Love your work. I have seen it many times at Case Study and didn't even check this here blog. Sorry. Love what I see and your card today is no exception. Lisa's work is always amazing and she is a favorite of mine as well. And your take on her design is beautiful. Similar but yet so different if that makes sense. Thanks for sharing and beautiful card.
