CASE Study 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop

CASE Study turned 3!!!!   
Three amazing years of inspiring stampers just like you and me :)

I have joined in the anniversary celebrations each of the three years, this time last year I never would have believed you if you told me I'd be a part of the DT the following year.
Still a dream come true!

In celebration of CASE Study's 3rd Anniversary, current and former DT members 
& many past muses are hopping along in THREE Blog Hops,
all about inspiration!!!



The hopping started on Thursday, so if you missed it, click here, you aren't going to want to miss out.
I say this for two reasons...

First, the talent in that group is amazing.  
Second, there are prizes, lots of them for each of the 3 Blog Hops!

For today's hop,
you should have come to me from the amazing Jean Martin's Blog
if not, head over to the CASE Study Blog so you can start from the beginning.

On to my inspiration...
My go to for inspiration lately, like many others, is Pinterest.
I have more pins than I know what to do with :)

So today I've used two of those pins as inspiration for cards.

My first inspiration.

And, my card...

I loved the colors and graphic nature of the inspiration.

My second inspiration...


And, how it inspired me...


It was so much fun to finally use some of my pins!
I hope you've been inspired.

Now, head on over to the very talented Lenet Mos.  She's your next stop along the way.
And make sure you head to CASE Study to see today's prizes!

Gorgeous cards - fantastic designs. I absolutely love that blue and green combination

Stephenie said...

Beautiful! Love how you took a flat pattern and gave it depth. Your second card is so pretty. You definitely have an eye of taking the inspiration and making it your own and no insult to the original designs, but I like the larger designs you incorporated into your cards! TFS!

Great job on both cards! The first one is simply stunning!!

Sue Speck said...

LOVE the tone-on-tone look in your first card: very subtle but very effective and classic. Also really like the creative use of those flower and stem pieces on your second card - very unconventional and creative. Think I'll try something similar!
