Case Study Sponsor

Have you heard of the Case Study Challenge Blog? They are a wonderful challenge site with a very talented design team. We are very lucky to be sponsoring the challenge this week and wait until you see what fantastic samples both team have created for the challenge.

From the Case Study blog: The idea behind our challenges is all about getting inspired by some of the most talented paper crafters in the industry. We will feature a new Guest Designer (Muse) every month, and show you how this person inspires us. Then, we want you to do just the same! Simple and easy, huh?

Now be ready to have your socks knocked off as the Muse for this week is Mercy Kerin  and she has created this gorgeous card that we are "casing" this week." Your task should you choose to accept it, is to create a project using this card for inspiration.  So you could use the layout, colors, etc. to create your work of art!

I know that I probably sound like a broken record, but once again 3 Digis images are up for grabs for one lucky participant!  Make sure to upload your cards here to play along.

Peek a boo I see you, LOL!  This little penguin is ready to come out and play in the cold and snow. This adorable card comes from Michelle and you can find this image here. Michelle shows us how simple touches can make the card, from the shape of the card base to cutting out of the image.

What to see more of Michelle's work?  Head over to her blog, Caffeine & Stamps and leave her some love!                                    

Collette has busy just like this little bee creating this beautiful card. What a color pallet, pretty ribbon and scalloped circle framing the image are the perfect compliments to this beauty!
You can find this image in the store here.

 Heavensent. For You  is where you can find more inspiration from this talented lady!

Critter Sketch Sponsor #48

Are you ready for another fun challenge this week? This is week #3 of our month long sponsorship of the Critter Sketch Challenge Blog. This week they threw us a twist and instead of doing a sketch we are doing a color+ embellishment challenge. Remember up for grabs are FREE images from TSB, so make sure to enter and while you are at it join our monthly contest for a 2nd chance to win!  Details can be found here.

Do you Believe?  Well I believe that I would love to receive this gorgeous tag created by our new designer Dardi.  She has used the image called Twirling Fairy. Hasn't she done a magnificent job coloring this cutie and what a fantastic color combo, so striking!

Next up we have our newest designer joining the team, Michelle Single and this is her 1st project for TSB.  She is working with the BRAND new image, Once Upon A Time.  I love that big beautiful bow and how she has framed the image using that fun shape. 

Check out more of Michelle's work on her blog here and look for her formal introduction soon!
