Time for your weekly does of CASE Study Inspiration. Our muse this month is the incredibly talented JJ Bolton of Ribbon Girls Blog. Told you JJ was a total trixie didn't I? This one looks all C&S but I happen to know that in typical JJ style the color has to come from somewhere doesn't it? This one looks like a shaker card but where is the shakie stuff right? Well I happen to know this is an hourglass card. OK so what does that mean right? It means it's technically not a shaker since the colorful filling on the inside appears and disappears into the hour glass behind the white card stock cover. Don't believe me - check it out here.
Here's my take on JJ's card. I used the cut file for the pinwheel stamp to cut the window on my card stock. stamped my pinwheel with Staz On on transparency and mounted it behind the window. I stamped the stick and the sentiment and then got to work on the back. I lined the window with strips of adhesive foam and played around filling the space with different things before I settled on the flower buttons (think confetti, beads, sequins etc.). I like the fun happy look, and am glad I got a rainbow of color in there to do JJ proud!Need a little more inspiration?
