{Throwback Thursday} CAS Inspired Projects by Carol

Hey, STAMPlorations friends! Welcome to another Throwback Thursday post. On the last Thursday of the month, the STAMPgirls will be sharing new projects inspired by a previous STAMPlorations project...either one they made themselves or made by another STAMPgirl. And every month, we'll draw one lucky crafter to win a $15 gift code -- randomly drawn from all comments left on the Throwback Thursday post for the month, as well as from the featured designer's blog.

Today STAMPgirl Carol shares her creative takes inspired by a past project and using various STAMPlorations products.


Have a look at Carol's projects:

Carol here, warmly welcoming you to my third, and final, Throwback Thursday post, where we select a previous card/project - one of our own or a teammate's - and 're-vision' it in three ways.

Once again, I've stepped outside my to draw inspiration from incredibly talented, always something eye-catching STAMP designer, Terri Koszler! Even though her style covers a wide range and is always stunning, it's her perfectly executed, eye-catching CAS cards that really catch my eye, soooo...I thought I'd try to give CAS a la Terri a try!

The specific card I've selected - featuring two stickers, a stenciled band and a black stamped image - is the one (of a trio) she created for Sticker Monday here:

The Throwback Card

Ready to see how Terri inspired me? Let's go....

Project #1
This 'warm up' card follows Terri's closely: same die cut ("Kathryn" is adorable!), 'framed' stenciling and a sentiment. Aside from the sun, I've also followed her colour scheme: shades of pink (pink clouds are fun *grin*), black-and-white.

Kathryn's Big Wishes dies and stamps

Project #2
For this card, I used all three of Terri's elements - stenciling, frame-fashion rather than band-fashion, black stamped image, two stickers, same palette. Given our world's current situation, we need' to keep sending those good vibes, even when it's challenging to do so!

Project #3
Bookmark!! I used three of Terri's elements here: pink/white, die cuts and, of course, stenciling. Yes, my 'books' is a tad crooked but that's okay! Gives it a 'novel' touch *grin*

I learned so much from dabbling with Terri's style and trying to add a few touches of my own. A huge THANK YOU to Terri for being so incredibly inspiring.

There you have it: my Throwback Thursdays are a wrap!
