I'm a Case Study Muse!

I've got to tell you… I'm really excited to do this!!!! I've seen the iconic Polaroid type frame with beautiful cards on blogs and Pinterest… but really didn't get how the whole thing worked.

So… if you're not familiar with Case Study… here's how it goes.

  • A muse (Me) is selected along with several of their cards for a month long challenge.
  • Each week the muse and Case Study designers create a card inspired by the card for that week and share it on the Case Study Blog
  • Once the blog post goes up, ANYONE (that means YOU) can case the card and share on the blog post via the InLinkz linking system. 

Let's get started! The card inspiration for this week is…


This has become my signature style as of late… I love to layer things together to form groupings.

For my CASE card, I went with a lot of the same sort of Kelly Purkey products to make a birthday card for my husband.


Pretty straight forward. I started off by adding some embossing paste using a dot stencil on the card. Once it dried (about 10 minutes) I started layering stickers and stacked them using foam squares. 
To finish things off, I added the foam numbers and sequins.  (I've listed all the supplies below).



Now that you've seen my card. Be sure to head over to the CASE STUDY blog to see what the designers have come up with. 

Are you up for the challenge? I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

Oh… before I go, the Kelly Purkey products are 75% off and may be selling out quick. My links below are for Simon Says Stamp. Use the coupon code: PURKEY to receive your discount. 

 Enjoy!!

Your style gets me in trouble all the time. :) I'm forever wanting to create cards that are reminiscent of your style and am always having to order something!! LOL Thanks for all the inspiration from "shabby chic" until now! Oh, and Happy Fourth of July, too!

I'm so excited that you're the muse this month. Had a lot of fun casing the first card and cannot wait till tomorrow when they show the next one.

I'm so excited you are this month's muse! Oh, and I read your word "grouping" as "groupling", which I think I'll start using once I get the hang of putting things together like you do. Mine is always a mess. I hope to CASE you at least once this month!
