Cases of Friends
This week my sweet friend Shirley Quarry is the Queen for the Day at SplitCoast Stampers. To honor Shirley, I picked this card to case. If you are not familar with Shirley's work check out her blog My Pinkie is Inkie in Boxertown. Shirley has a fun style, a big heart, and lots of talent!
I selected the card I cased because I loved her image and the way she framed it. I used a teacup image from Pattie's Creations, and tried to keep the same style of framing that Shirt (Shirley's fun nickname) used. My paper is from Free Digital Vintage Stamps, my border around the image is made with cut up mini doily dies from MFT, the rolled roses are mini dies from MFT (I purchased both MFT dies from Can You Digi It?), and the folliage was punched using Martha Steward punches.
This card was made using the bats from the Batty Tiddly Inks image and papers from GCD (Parisan Nights) and the Haunted Paper Pack from Green Goddess Creations (I digitally changed the color).
I cased the Featured Stamper at Splitcoast Stampers (FS297) Elizgmom (Cheryl). You should check out her blog She Stamps by Cheryl - amazing things! I changed to bats instead of butterflies, used faux sewing instead of real, used a bit different die cuts, and went a lot darker (her card is in such beautiful and happy colors). I am entering this in the Haunted Design House challenge HDH154 Bats in the Belfry and the Tiddly Inks #95 Fall challenge.
