It’s December and time for TE’s Studio Challenge! This is an especially fun time as the Baker’s Dozen gets creative with a new challenge every month. Let’s see what’s in store for us this month!

The question for December is:

Inpsiration is all around us. Many of us learned to stamp by CASEing other stampers we admired. (CASE = Copy and Share Everything) We want everyone to know that, not only is CASEing perfectly OK, it’s actually pretty flattering and a lot of fun! And it can be especially helpful in the midst of the busy holiday season when it’s hard to think straight! So take some inspiration from your fellow Baker’s Dozen Teammates, and show us how you can turn any great inspiration into a fabulous holiday card!



Today I’m CASEing Shannon! I would be lying if I said this challenge didn’t have me a little nervous, how do you CASE one of the best? Shannon has a beautiful style that makes me study her projects a little bit longer. I don’t want to miss any of the details. Something that I’ve noticed about Shannon’s work is that she makes beautiful backgrounds. That’s something I don’t do very often, so I gave it a whirl with my snowman. I have to admit that these clouds were my 2nd attempt. 🙂

HERE is the card I CASEd from her. I love the embossed kraft background and the layered banners, it has such a warm, cozy feel to it! Take a look at the rest of Shannon’s gallery, it’s one you don’t want to miss! I always leave her gallery feeling inspired.

My card uses The Cool Crowd, an adorable set of snowmen and matching sentiments. The patterned paper I used with the banners are from Simple Stories Handmade Holiday (a gorgeous paper pack!), the impression plate is Waves and Bubbles, and the gorgeous snowflakes are Make a Snowflake dies. To create my clouds, I used the Cloud Border die and Broken China Distress Ink. I hope I gave Shannon’s style some justice!
