Welcome back and if you’re here for the first time, WELCOME!
Are you wondering what the title of today’s post is all about? I’ve teamed up with another Stampin’ Up demonstrator who lives clear across the country and has become a wonderful friend through the power of Stampin’ Up! and this little hobby. Karen Hallam, who lives in California and I (from Pennsylvania) will be tag teaming once a month to CASE a project. If you’re not familiar with the term “CASEing”, it means Copying and Sharing Everything. Each month one of us will create a card, while the other will be inspired by some aspect(s) of that card and create their own.
Karen is starting us off with a fabulous card that sparked a lot of inspiration. HERE’S the link to Karen’s blog for all the card details.
AND here is my CASE…
I was delighted to see that Karen used one of my all-time favorite stamp set, Country Home. As soon as I saw this, I knew that was going to be what I would copy. I love the country vibe and versatility of this set. However, for my case, I chose to create a Christmas card.
Creating Christmas cards is so easy with the classic plaid patterns from Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series Paper. After creating a card layer of Very Vanilla and Shaded Spruce on the Cherry Cobbler card base, I cut a piece of DSP in a diagonal and trimmed it with a strip of Gold Foil for the background.
I used Stampin’ Blends to color the milk can and foliage. I also used a die from the Bouquet Bunch dies and cut out the gold “twigs” behind the foliage. I thought this gave it a little bit more shine! The milk can was popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Christmas and is stamped in Golden Glitz Delicata ink.
The inside sentiment is from the Toile Christmas stamp set and is stamped in Shaded Spruce ink.
Here are the two cards together. You can even say that Karen’s diagonal design was more inspiration for my card.
I hope you enjoyed this cross country CASEing post. Perhaps you’ll even try to case our cards yourself. If you do, please be sure to share them with us. We would truly love that!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday!
