DT Challenge: CASEing Kimberly!

Hello! Today is our DT Challenge day and for today’s challenge we’re taking a cue from SCS and doing our own version of Featured Stamper, using Kimberly Crawford as our inspiration. In case you’ve missed all the chatter, Kimberly is the designer of IHP’s latest exclusive stamp line, Mint Motif. So, all of the IHP today has selected a project from Kimberly’s amazing blog and we’re each making our own take on it.

I selected this card of hers and used her two new sets, Very Square and Very Square Sentiments to make my own version. I used my Square Nesties for the frame, stamped the cloud image in Palette Seascape. The bird is the smallest from Nested Birds stamped in Palette Prussian Blue along with the greeting. The DP is from BasicGrey’s Lime Rickey collection. The finishing touch was a wrap of Navy Silk ribbon.

Make sure you check out the rest of the DT to see their creations.

Here are links to the rest of the team:


Thanks for stopping by today!

This project of Kim's caught my eye too. I love your version too. I find that making sympathy cards are so difficult - I usually put off doing them.

Your shades of blue are perfect for this type of card. Well done, my friend.

Love the frame and the colors. Really a lovely card. If I'd made it, I probably would have used a butterfly ;-)
