Inspirational CASE at 4 Crafty Chicks....

Happy Thursday PEEPS! Today I am the "hostess-with-the-mostess" and I'm bringing you an INSPIRATIONAL challenge :) I found this oh-so-purdy bedding set at the Bed, Bath and Beyond website and thought that it would make some very interesting, colorful creations!

I subscribe to Gretchen Barron's newsletter and I am CASE'ing a card she did for the Tour de Freaks February Blog can see her card/gift box HERE. I have seen this technique a couple times and I have been meaning to try it and when I saw Gretchen's LOVELY creations, I just "knew" I could use stars and make some birthday cards! :) Thanks so much Gretchen!

Stamps: Bring on the Cake; Paper: Whisper White, Early Espresso, Tangerine Tango, Pear Pizzazz, Marina Mist; Ink: Momento Black; Accessories: star punches, nestabilties, marina ribbon, markers (marina, tangerine, pear pizzazz), pearls, paper piercer, dimensionals, square lattice embossing folder

Doesn't that look SO TOTALLY COOL?! I think it's a very neat technique and I will definitely be using it more often! I made another card using a cute caterpillar stamp that I had in my STASH :) Isn't he cute!?!

Thanks for stopping in today - be sure to hop on over to the rest of Chicks blogs and see what wonderful inspirational creations they have made for your crafting pleasure! Then, please get inky and link up your creation over at the 4 Crafty Chicks challenge blog :) I can't wait to see what you come up with! CHEERS!
