CASE Study 4th Anniversary Blog Hop

It's good to be back. I have been absent from my blog because of a very busy, but oh-so-memorable summer (I will have to write an update in a future post), but  I am thrilled to be joining this year's CASE Study 4-week long, 4th Anniversary Celebration Blog Hop, featuring past muses and DT members.

I have two cards for you since I have been gone for a while. Here is my first source of inspiration. Isn't it lovely?

And here's my card. The bike was cut using my Silhouette Cameo. I drew the grass and cut it with the Cameo as well. The sentiment is by SRM Stickers.

For my second card, this is the beautiful inspiration.

 And here's my card using Penny Black's Dahlia Dance and Love Chapter (background text) stamp sets. The flowers were watercolored. The card base was stamped with the text stamp. Then I swiped some DecoArt Gesso with a brush along the sides. I placed two photo corners (by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L) before adhering the panel. The sentiment is by SRM Stickers. The pearls are by Want2Scrap.

This week's blog hop will be open until midnight on the following Tuesday. We have a few sponsors lined up for each week and we will be posting the winners on our blog on Wednesdays. If you were inspired, I invite you to join an accompanying challenge and share creations inspired by any project from the Blog Hop. Here is the blog hop order:
Happy hopping!

  64. Oh a two-fer-one! My favourite has to be the bike. I too own a silhouette and love to see it used as a tool for part of a card as I don't think it gets used enough, although that could just be mine.
