So here we are in week 4 of our CASE challenge, and today’s project looks at the spotlight technique.  Simply put, it’s where you highlight one element of the card, as if you’re shining a spotlight on to it.  Becki had chosen the wonderfully talented Sue Campfield and her cards which show off this technique so wonderfully, and now it’s our turn to CASE her!

I chose the stamp set Lift me Up, which always reminds me of Bristol and the hot air balloon festival.  Most of the balloons were stamped in Pool Party, but I stamped an extra one using Night of Navy on a spare piece of Whisper White cardstock.  This extra image was punched out with the 1 1/4″ circle punch, and layered onto a Night of Navy circle cut with the 1 1/2″ circle punch.  (Confession time!  I wanted a thinner border to my spotlight, so I trimmed it with scissors.  Hopefully it still looks ok!)

I finished off the card with a strip of houses cut out from the Hometown Greetings edgelits in Night of Navy, which gives a lovely silhouetted look.

Your next stop now is Becki Ritson at Sunshine Stamping to see her take on this week’s challenge, follow this link here!

This time it is my choice of designer, and I’ve selected the latest million sales achiever Terri Gaines.  Her blog is bursting with gorgeous projects and it was hard to choose which one to CASE, but I just loved this fancy fold, check it out here!   I can’t wait to see all the different versions we create together.

Come back next week to see the cards Becki and I have made using Terri’s card as inspiration.  If you’d like to join in the challenge, please go to my Facebook page Craft with Emma where you can share your creations, I’d love to see what you come up with!

Happy stamping!
