Remember when...

I was saying that CASEing is really an approved manner of making cards? Well, in spite of creating quite a few cards lately, none of them jumped out at me as something I wanted to do for my stamp camps this weekend. My stamp camps generally total around 3 cards, so they're a lot fewer projects than most Stampin' Up demonstrators' versions of a stamp camp.

Since I was looking for inspiration, I went to my SCS "favorites" that I have selected over time from the Splitcoast Stampers site and picked some cards to CASE. Here they are, with links to their original inspiration cards.


I LOVE the color combination on this! The card that I CASEd can be found here. It was created by SCS member, kmastrorio. The difference between mine and hers are on the vanilla center piece. She sponged the edges of hers, and I believe she watercolored her butterfly. I colored mine in with a blender pen and then covered it in Dazzling Diamonds glitter.


The second card in my series of CASEd cards is by SCS member leslierich and can be found here. I love my Best of Cluck set, so this was an easy decision. I created a paper mask for the chicks so they didn't get sponged too. She used ribbon instead of the twine, but I didn't have a color ribbon that I liked, and she used Really Rust instead of Ruby Red (I liked the pop of color). She also had her Weathered-stamped piece layered on another piece of Cocoa cardstock (but given the butterfly card, I was tired of cutting layers. Especially knowing I had to cut enough for an entire group of stampers!


This creator of the card I CASEd for this sample is SCS member SophiaMom. Her card can be found here. The difference on mine is that I embossed the jar (hers was outlined in black, and she had a sentiment down the right side of the card. I didn't do this because I didn't have the same sentiment, and then, well, I messed up, so my image is actually moved over to cover up a mistake. I also added a green mat and faux stitching. Both cards have ribbon, but hers is around the jar top and mine is around the card body. Our colors are also slightly different, but I was definitely inspired by hers. The inside of the jar is very lightly watercolored with an aqua painter and Bashful Blue ink pad. Oh! She also had used the Canvas background, but because I already used Canvas for another project that will be being created at the same time, I went with linen for my version.

Have a great weekend and a very happy Friday!

These are great cards...they will be lots of fun for a stamp camp because they will be fully detailed with backgrounds and fun embellishments!
