CASEing pineapplepaperink

Happy new year! I have been keeping a little collection of posts from fellow cardmakers on Instagram with cards that I want to CASE. Then today I say the latest challenge from Inkspirational and I decided to CASE a card by Lindsay Olmstead Lajola AKA @pineapplepaperink- you can check out her card HERE and there's a photo below. 

Here's my take:
I used a floral stamp from Concord and 9th, stamped in black ink onto watercolour cardstock. I added some Distress Oxide Inks in Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Mermaid Lagoon and Cracked Pistachio. I decided to add some detail (a la Kelly Latevola) with Copic markers in shades to match the Oxide Inks. I added a layered diecut sentiment from My Favorite Things, some Wink of Stella over the flowers and the senitment, and then added some sequins. I adhered it to a card base with some black cardstock on the edges.

Here is Lindsay's gorgeous card (posted with her permission):

I will also be sharing this card at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where the theme is Anything Goes!


Thanks for visiting :)


  1. This is a stunning CASE Michelle. I love the loose use of the oxide inks and then the detail you added with the copics and WOS. A beautiful blend of soft colours and the whole card as an arty feel. Thanks for joining Ink

  2. beautiful card, Michelle - happy 2019!!

  3. This is eye candy! Both cards are gorgeous. I might want to case this myself. Love the coloring technique and the layout used for these rather large flower stamps. So glad you shared your card with us over at Inkspirational.
