Case Study 12


Can you believe we are up to our 12th Case Study, sadly it is the last week for our October Muse Barbara Anders and even sadder is that two of our fabulous design team members Carole and Cindy have stepped down, both girls are hugely talented, they are moving on to big and better opportunities within the industry. I wish them both the best.


On to this weeks card, here is the Muse card…..


And….. my card! One thing I loved with Barbara’s card’s they have so many elements that inspire me. This time her layout jumped out at me to case, as you can tell I have added an oval to the top half of my card and I have not rounded my corners….however had I not had a fight with my corner rounder I would of! {grrrrrrrrr} I LOVE the little detail of the score lines on the bottom panel, so I have done that on my card and I have also stamped my greeting in a simpler position to Barbara. This muse card for me just had to be a Christmas theme and it looks like most of the design team agree.


Inside……. Can I just say I am LOVING this Printed Paper I am using it in the Cocoa DSP from this months Stampin’ Up! promotion, click here to read all about the promotion and click here to view all the sheets in this printed paper pack


Hope you liked my spin on this weeks card, I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to everyone that did give me a little comment love on my last post, it helps knowing people are reading this! and I really appreciate that.

    Yet another masterpiece!!
    Would love to see as many Christmas cards as possible Teneale (no pressure!!!), I desperately need some ideas, and no-one inspires me like you!!

    Oh my god, thought you were having a joke with me, when i read the comments about all Barbara’s elements that inspired you…………….when everyone knows i do simple.

    Teneale this is a very beautiful card and i dont think that the shot does it justice. Its much much much nicer in the flesh……………..would love it as my special card (this is for Mari). The pack of paper that you used is one of the nicest ones i have seen, hope we get it soon.
