We're Back!

Donelda and I had such fun a few weeks ago picking Paper Crafts magazine cards that we would each CASE, we decided to do it again! I convinced Donelda to dig out last year's November/December issue -- I'd bought it last year, but in the holiday rush, I only had time to make a few tags inspired by all the projects in it! One of the reasons I picked up the magazine was the feature on music, so I decided to pick Kelley Eubanks' Musical Joy card on p. 67. Here's what I came up with:




I used the same layout as Kelley, but switched to a red card base instead of black. I used a strip of music paper from the Stampin' Up newsprint collection, and backed it with a strip of black. This plaid ribbon is one of my favourites to use at Christmas, and I'm going to be so sad when I get to the end of the roll! I coloured the rhinestone with a Sharpie to match the card base. I'm entering this card into the inspiration challenge at Ribbon Carousel (RCC32).




Don't forget to head over to Donelda's blog to see what she came up with! Tomorrow we'll be revealing her pick from this issue.


Supplies: black & Stampin' Up real red cardstock, Stampin' Up newsprint patterned paper, Hero Arts Joy stamp, Brilliance graphite black ink, clear embossing powder, $ store ribbon, Hodges & Lettau rhinestone, red Sharpie Pin It Now!

Really beautiful CAS look for Christmas Lindsey. I used to play with Deena and we would use a card from CARDS magazine to be inspired from. How cool that you do that too. Deena and I should try and do it mor often, it's fun! :)Peggy
