Around the World on Wednesday...CAS(e) a Team Member

AWOW hop header

Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop!  This month we are CAS(e)ing a member of the blog hop team.  I am CAS(e)ing the talented and creative Teri West, Alaska Stamper.  It was super fun to look through her blog.  I had a tough time trying to decide what to CASE, there were so many great cards!   I spent a lot of time and finally decided on this one.  I love the color palette, layout, blending and well everything about her card.

I love the blending Teri did.  I used similar colors Pacific Point, Balmy Blue, and Night of Navy for the background.  I am not as comfortable/skilled with the Blending Brushes so I used Stampin' Sponges which I just realized that Stampin' Up!® no longer sells.  I guess I need to practice with the Blending Brushes!


Instead of sequins I watered down some White Craft ink  and flicked it on to the background using a Water Painter. I used Basic Black cardstock and Black Glitter paper (returning in August in the Mini Catalog) to create the silhouettes using the Meadow dies.  I wrapped Black Baker's twine around the card and tied on a Tailor Made Tag.  The sentiment is from the Through It Together stamp set.  


Are you wondering how I got the butterfly facing this way?  I cut it with the die cutting edge facing the non glittery side of the paper.  Inside you can see I also added another silhouette.  One last thing,  I used the Tasteful Textile 3D folder on the front of the card base.  

Thank you Angie for being our blog hop leader and coming up with this fun challenge.  Thank you Teri for the beautiful cards you have on your blog, so much inspiration!

What a gorgeous CASE! Love the glimmery look you achieved on the die cuts.

Teri West

Sharon, I love your take on my card! I'm still trying to master the blending brushes too. I love that you used silhouette against the background and the splatter of water downed white craft ink. Gorgeous!
