Hi there, friends! I'm just squeezing in before the deadline of the latest Color Cue Challenge over at WPlus9. I just couldn't miss this gorgeous color combo, but I was waiting for some fabulous new stamps to arrive before playing along. As it turns out, they worked out perfectly for this week's CASE Study, as well. Here's the inspiration:
If you haven't seen the February release from WPlus9, you must go check it out. Seriously, do it now! I could not wait to get my hands on these babies! What's not to love about customizable postage stamps and postmarks? I'm looking forward to playing with these sets more in the near future.
For this card, I CASEd Eva's overall design, the postage stamp edges, and the bird image. I chose kraft as my neutral (no surprise there, since I love kraft!) and added a bit of a shabby touch with some white acrylic paint and tea dye, plus that gorgeous seam binding.
To make the postage stamp look on the edges of the kraft panel, I simply punched along each edge with a 1/4 inch hole punch. The kraft panel is also debossed with PTI's Linen & Canvas impression plate for more of an aged look.
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Aqua Mist, Sweet Blush, white), Bazzill (kraft)
Stamps: WPlus9 (Spring Post, Postmarked)
Ink: Clearsnap (Seaglass, Frost White), Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate, Chai tea dye)
Tools: Papertrey Ink (Fillable Frames #4 die, Linen & Canvas impression plate), Spellbinders (Labels 4 die), Fiskars (hole punch)
Accessories: Prairie Bird Boutique on Etsy (seam binding), Stampendous (embossing powder), Delta (acrylic paint)
Isn't that postmark the sweetest thing? I customized it with my SIL's birthdate. I can't wait to use this set to add dates to my scrapbook pages, too. The sentiment is actually two separate stamps. The Spring Post set has lots of single words in different fonts that can be mixed and matched, which I love.
Okay, gotta go link this up before it expires! Thanks so much for stopping by tonight!
