CASEing a Crafter: Bullseye

Do you ever find yourself wanting to CASE a card you've seen, because it's just too cute (or pretty) not to? That's the situation I encountered recently, after re-reading an older issue of Card Creations by Paper Crafts Magazine.  

My friend Tenia of Jazzy Paper Designs had a card similar to mine below published in that issue.  She used a Market Street Stamps set called Hit The Mark, which I own, too.  I had won the set a few years ago, and never quite knew how to use it.  I loved Tenia's published card, and was inspired to create this:


I added a woodgrain embossing folder, and some speckles from Itty Bitty Backgrounds (Stampin' Up!). Other than those changes, it's a very Tenia card.  =)


Thank you, Tenia, for your inspiration!  You rock!



Stamps: Itty Bitty Backgrounds - SU; Hit The Mark - Market Street Stamps Paper: white, Creamy Caramel - SU Ink: Close To Cocoa, Real Red, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip - SU; Memento Tuxedo Black - Tsukineko Accessories & Tools: Copic markers; Woodgrain embossing folder - Sizzix/Tim Holtz
