I'm Tracey Malnofski, the artist and owner of The Stamping Boutique.
My team and I are very happy to sponsor Case Study. My store has been open since September 2009.I am currently a stamp artist for Unity Stamp Co. and I've worked for InStyleStamps, Squigglefly, and TheDigiShack in the past. I'm a professional artist and an active member of the Artist' Guild in my community. I have quite a busy household with a husband, 3 teenagers, 5 mini-dachshunds and an Appaloosa mare. It's noisy, but I love them all. I'm truly blessed.

"The Stamping Boutique" is dedicated to quality products and original artwork. We not only provide wonderful digital images in our store, but also several lines of red rubber images. Our designers are chosen for their character and personality,as well as,

From now on, I decided that we are switching to being sponsored occasionally - once, sometimes twice a month. I sincerely hope that it won't affect the numbers of our players! Seeking sponsors is a big job, that I can't undertake effectively any more. So, this week we're playing just for fun again!

The winners are here!

Wow, guys! The gallery this week was, yet again, oozing with all sorts of pretties! I think I might have one of the hardest moments so far, choosing the creations to highlight. You totally rocked the inspiration!! Thank you everyone, for your constant support. We sure love when you play along!

Our winner for CSC39 is Jo from We Don't Do Duvets!!





Jo's card is fabulously shabby, and chock full of the most beautiful embellishments. I'm in love with the lace flower, and that gorgeous butterfly! The fact, that Jo hand-stitched around the card, os an remarkable achievement, and deserves a recognition on its own. Beautiful work!

Our Top 3 winners are:



Lana @ Pink Latte
Kim @ Paper. Loves. Glue.
Angelica @ Bellisima Vida

Congratulations, ladies!
Winners, feel free to grab your badges (right click & save onto your computer), and wear them proudly!

On top of these amazing creations, I would also love you to check out these outstanding cards, submitted by our 'regulars' - Anja, Tesa, Julie, Jinny, Maureen, Debbie & Teresa.
Their cards this week are, as always, unbelievably gorgeous! If you haven't yet checked them out, you should do so now!

See you tomorrow, thanks so much again for playing!

CASE Study Challenge #38

As we're saying farewell to Silke Ledlow, we all know what it also means - a brand new Muse is being introduced to our challenge blog.
Please help me welcome... yes, you guessed right! Sarah Martina Parker!!



Hey y’all! Sarah here, and I’m so excited to be a guest today on the CASE Study Challenge blog! I guess you could say that paper-crafting is my first passion, but only if you don’t count my incredible family first. I joined the online craft community in December 2008, diving in “head first,” and I haven’t been able to stop since! Making cards is my favorite way to design, but I also enjoy creating scrapbook pages, altered items, gifts and more. I am married to my hero and best friend, Sie. Together we have a beautiful daughter, Sydney, and a fun-loving son, Sie, II. When I’m not lounging with them, I love getting my hands dirty in my hideaway craft room.

Here's the first inspiration card of hers, that you might recognized from our sneak peek :)
