CASE Study #96


Hello there!  Did you see my giveaway?  

I promised to share some cards with the Half Pint Heroes set, and the first is for this week's CASE Study challenge.  Here's the inspiration from our Muse, Joy Taylor:

By Joy Taylor

Before I get to the card, I want to give a birthday shout-out to CASE Study's very own Amy Wanford!  Aimes, I hope you're having a fabulous day with all of your favorite things!

Now on to Joy's adorable card!  I was inspired to use the same circle impression plate, clouds, and a rocket ship in place of Joy's airplane.  I stamped the rocket twice, colored the images with Copics, then cut them out, popping up the main body of the rocket for added dimension.

Before debossing the Smokey Shadow panel, I heat embossed the moon and stars with white embossing powder, then colored them with a yellow Copic marker.

The clouds are from Half Pint Heroines, stamped onto Soft Stone cardstock and fussy cut.  I added a sentiment from the set, splitting it between two of the clouds.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Smokey Shadow, Soft Stone), WPlus9 Design Studio (White)
Stamps:  Waltzingmouse (Half Pint Heroes, Half Pint Heroines)
Ink:  Memento (Tuxedo Black), Copic markers
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (Sunshine impression plate)
Accessories:  Filigree (white embossing powder)

I can't wait to see your take on Joy's card this week!  Keep your comments coming on my giveaway post, telling me about your great Customer Service experiences.  I've enjoyed reading your stories so far.

Stop back tomorrow for another card with Half Pint Heroes!
