CASE Study Challenge 151

It's almost the weekend! Yay! Of course all of us want it to be the weekend already. I always enjoy spending a big chunk of my Saturday just in my craft room. I'll let you in on a little secret...I'm a SLOW card maker! Probably the slowest you'll ever meet! Hahahaha. In fact I should change my blog name to Slow Stamper! lol!!! 

It takes me close to an hour to finish one card. YES! Not kidding. I can't sketch stuff ahead of time to save my ink pads. I have to be sitting down with actual stamps and inks in front of me before an idea pops up. And it takes TIME before anything comes my way...hence the close to an hour just to make one card. heehee. 

It's a wonder that I got to finish so many cards this week though! And one of them is for CASE Study Challenge 151. Welcome! Welcome to another challenge! We have one last card from our July muse Jocelyn Olson. Here it is!

I absolutely love the color combination on Jocelyn' card! As well as her use of the grunge background stamp. So I took those as my inspiration and made a little something for everyone this week! I made a Fun and Cute card! Yes! I'm dabbling in ALL the card styles it seems. Teehee. I've been loving stamps from Lawn Fawn, Newton's Nook Designs, and Paper Smooches lately! 

For my card, I used this adorable lady bug from PTI's Tremendous Treats: Birthday. I stamped the little ladies and colored them in with Copics. I also added a little bling with Stickles on their little stars. 

I used PTI's Grunge Me for my background. I stamped it in yellow and pink to coordinate with the inspiration card colors. Mine are just a little lighter. :) This is absolutely adorable in person, I can't wait to send this to one of my nieces!!! 

 There you go! I hope you enjoyed that! Make sure to head on over to the other DTs blogs for more inspiration. And next week is CASE Study Challenge's Anniversary!!!! Yay!!!! Chupa has an AMAZING line up of designers!!!! AND...a long list of sponsors!!!! YES!!! Prizes are going to be up for grabs!!! So make sure you join us next week, starting August 1st! See you there!!!

    I'm pretty slow, too. I think it's because i just enjoy sitting in my space, surrounded by my supplies. It's my happy place. :)

  7. Love those lady bugs and the scrolls on sides of banner!! Eeeeeks one hour-I've never timed myself but, dang I usually make a card in a couple and come back....thinking I'm really a slow turtle!

    I know what you mean about being a slow crafter - it takes me a while to make a card too. I will never be able to make one of those challenges to create in 10 minutes!!! Rx
