Just Add Tania....JAI #96

Good Morning....We have a fun challenge over at Just Add Ink this week, we have been Challenged to Just Add fellow DT member Tania Gould
I love Tania's work, she has such a flair for gorgeous "Vintage Inspired" projects and let me just say choosing a case project wasn't easy...but after much deliberation, l finally settled on this beautiful card to case.....

I loved the simple clean lines and pretty colour combo Tania has used and decided to pretty much case it exactly.....but, l ended up making 2 cards, the first one was as l intended and pretty much a straight case, that was until l decided to use the Stampin Up formula of +ONE and took it that one step further and ran it partially through the bigshot using the Square Lattice embossing folder.
Well, you know when you do something and regret it straight away, that was me!

Definitely thinking that the added Embossing was overkill and did nothing to enhance Tania's gorgeous card in anyway!
So, l decided a very simple clean version was the way to go and a much better show of the lovely new Stampin-Up DSP called Spice new absolute fave!
The rest of the DT have CASED Tania beautifully, Including Tania, Lot's of lovely inspiration over at JAI and of course check out Tania's Blog, choose a project and play along, we would love to see your creations.

  3. Ooo I loved this card I made - and I love yours too! I actually really like the embossing - makes it a bit "quirky"! And I love your 2nd card as well - simple is often so so so striking and this one is just that!
