Winners!

Holy moly, what an inspiration you gave us this week!! You certainly gave Kryssi the best farewell present she could get... so much eye candy to look at! It was a pleasure to share this month with our Muse and with all of you, especially in this busy time. We appreciate that you're coming back for more!

Our winner for CSC67 is Christina from Sea Glass & Sentiments!!





This striking card is so beautifully balanced, and the design elements are supported by an equally eye-catching colour combo. Did you notice how Christina chose the perfect sentiment? It's very simple, so that it compliments the design, and not too wide, so that there's space for the fun, offset red spot too. Isn't that simply a fabulous idea??
Congratulations, Christina... you did it again :)

Our Top 3 winners are:



Jan @ Simply Made
Kelly @ Creating Chaos
Sue @ Cards By Q

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

We would like to thank again Kryssi, for providing us with such amazing inspiration, throughout the month. It was so much fun, and I'm sure we all learnt a lot in the process :)
We all know what happens tomorrow... we introduce you to a brand new Muse!! You want to find some time to play in December... this gal's work is to die for!!! See you then ~

And the winners are...

A bit later this time, I've been stopped in tracks by one rambunctious two-year-old :)
Therefore I'll just get to the merit, I'm sure you all want to meet the talented ladies, who greeted us with their amazing artwork this week!

Our winner for CSC66 is Silke from My Life!!





Everyone knows and loves Silke, so I'm sure no introduction is necessary, for our former Muse. We love when she's playing with us, and this week she contributed a card that is simply breathtaking! This is such a good example, of how only a couple of basics can go a long way. Just bee-u-tiful, Silke!!

Our Top 3 winners are:



Miriam @ Sooner Rather Than Later
Andrea @ Andrea's Stamping Moments

And the winners are...

Holy moly, you knocked it outta the park this week, girls!! I don't think we've seen so many creative ways of negative die cutting at once... :) I learnt so much and I'm eager to try some of the tips/techniques that you kindly shared with us all! It was a difficult decision to narrow the cards to spotlight down...

Our winner for CSC64 is Tui from Stampin' Time!!





Of all the gorgeous examples of negative die cutting, this one certainly stands out! I don't know about you, but I see a folded man's shirt here, with funky buttons and all... then there's the colours, so vivid and lovely but very masculine at the same time! ANY man would be delighted to receive a card like this :) Congrats, Tui!!

Our Top 3 winners are:



Lucille @ White Points
Rochelle @ Two Tears In My Bucket
Kristii @ Sincerely Yours

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

See you tomorrow for another stunner from Kryssi, and a bunch of inspiration from our wonderful Teamies!!

CASE Study Challenge #64

Stop the presses, she's here! Our new Muse!! Yippee!! Are you ready to find out who will graciously provide us with the inspiration this month?
It's the one and only Kryssi Ng, from Sugar Buffet!!

We're very excited to have the Queen of CAS as our guest in November! Take it away, Kryssi!

Here's what Kryssi has to say...

Hello, hello! What an incredibly fun honor to be a muse for CASE Study this month! I live in NYC with my husband and two little girls. I started doodling and drawing at a young age and pursued an education in fine arts. That lifelong passion eventually led me into the world of paper crafting and graphic designing. Most of my waking hours are dedicated to tending to my family but on the small window of free time on some days -- you can find me in my room making cards (and sometimes scrapbooking a layout) or tinkering around with Photoshop or Illustrator. I am tickled with excitement and can't wait to see how other artists (all of you!) interpret my art.

The first card of Kryssi, that we are tackling this month, is a stunner - I'm sure you'll all agree. I hope everyone will find in it something, that strikes your fancy :)
