Case Study Design Team search challenge – my submission

Hi All,

The folk over at Case Study Design Team  are looking for some new members to join their design team *squeal* ….. so I’ve decided to give it a go and try out myself. 🙂

The criteria for this special challenge was to ‘case’ a card from your personal inspirational muse eg a popular card maker that inspires you. It also had to push you a little out of your comfort zone.

I’ve chosen a card from the amazing Kimberly Van Diepen.  I just love her style and I’m always totally in awe of the eclectic way she puts her cards together.  This card is a particular favourite of mine.


I love the colours and the layering… but I also love that Kimberly isn’t afraid to add that bit extra, tiny bits of interest and excitement. Now I’m not sure I could never replicate her total look, so I’ve decided to just get the feel of the card and pick up on little elements. The tiny heart, a bow, the placement of the ‘love’ and of course the colours – just enhanced by my absolute favourite colour Crumb Cake. 🙂 Here is my card, I hope you like it.



I’m a little bit in love with the Soda Pop Tops (they’re so cute), I’ve added a stamped image in the bottom of the Soda Pop top then filled it with Crystal Effects lacquer and added a little Dazzling Diamonds glitter for detail.
