TIME OUT#91 - CASE-ing Beverly Brown

CASE challenges are always so much fun - I just love being inspired by other card designers - especially when they challenge me to look at things differently. The CASE card this week at TIME OUT is from Beverly Brown of Uniko Studios - our generous sponsor for this challenge, and it was such a fun challenge. Here it is:

I played around with a few different designs focusing on the rainbow stripes - but I eventually ended up with a "looser" CASE - here it is:

This card is a true one-layer card - something I don't make that often :) I started by stamping the beautiful flower from Indigo Blu (Colour Me Dahlia) onto the card front. I then masked around the stamped area and blended in some Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, and Mustard Seed Distress inks to create "stripes". I then re-stamped the flower in Versafine Onyx Black to make sure it popped against the background (I love my MISTI!!!). The greeting is from one of my favourite sentiment sets - Altenew Many Thanks stamp set.

Our wonderful guest designer this week is Lucie from LucieG Cards whose designs are truly inspiring - so make sure you check out her blog along with the rest of the DT to amp up your inspiration and play along with us.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I love you went with the richer colours rather than the soft, a great twist and fab masking x

  2. Fabulous crisp lines, Jill ... so bold and so striking ... the colours pop brilliantly against the white! Hugs, Anita :)

  3. This is killer gorgeous Jill!!! What a perfect composition for a one layer card. The image is swoon-worthy! Beautiful job on the CASE! xx Stephanie

  4. Wow that flowerstamp looks so good like this! And a super onelayer! Hugs, Gerrina

  5. Wow! So vibrant and beautiful Jill!

  6. Wow Jill... What a one layer wonder! I love the way you masked the edges of the flower and blended ink to color it -really a stunning look! Thank you for your sweet email yesterday. Work has been crazy for me too, today is my first free day during last two weeks so don't worry about the delay in answering to me. As you see I'm super late with my comments! :)
