CASE Study Challenge #42

Good morning, inky friends!
It's a big day today at CASE Study, as we introduce you to a brand new Muse!! Got to love it...
Before I move to it, though, I would like to extend our thanks to the fabulously talented and kind-hearted Sarah Martina Parker, for being such an awesome Muse for May! It's been a pleasure, Sarah... thank you!!

Now, please help me welcome our amazing June Muse, Jill Foster!!

Hi everyone! I'm sooo completely honored to be a guest on the CASE Study Challenge blog! I love cardmaking, especially stamping, and have been sharing my work online for about 2 years. One of my passions is sharing the work of other sweet and talented crafters on my blog. It is always such an honor to create cards inspired by their beautiful work. When I'm not designing or teaching class at my local scrapbook store, I love spending time with my husband and our three furbabies- a St. Bernard, Golden Retriever, and a Daschund.

Jill is a technique savvy stamper, and her cards are true works of art. I thought that it might be fun to pull out those inks and heating tools, and get messy with her! :)
Here's Jill's stunning inspiration card for this week:


Here's what our fabulous Design Team came up with:

Jill Foster - June Muse

This week's we're having a sponsored challenge. Our fabulous sponsor is The Crafts Meow!!

The Craft's Meow

Lisa from TCM has generously provided our Team with her new release stamps. Thank you, Lisa!!
The prize for one lucky winner is the Celebrating You stamp set. WOOT!

Now all you have to do is play with us!

Here are the deets:
1. Create a paper crafting project (card, layout, off-the-page item), based on provided inspiration (being a featured creation, made by our Muse).
2. Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery (using a code CSC42), and link it here with the inlinkz widget below. Please provide a direct link to your post, not an entire blog.
3. A new challenge is being posted every Thursday at 12.01 AM EST, and you've got until midnight on Tuesday to submit your entry.
4. You may enter as many times as you like, but you're asked to provide a newly designed project.
5. We will choose one winner randomly from the list of players, who will receive the prize provided by the sponsor. In addition, the authors of the four most impressive creations will be awarded the Winner and Top 3 awards.
We will announce the winners on Wednesday.
6. Above all, have fun - and be inspired!

Happy creating!
The CASE Study Design Team
