The Challenge: Find a card in the annual catalog and CASE it. What does CASE mean? "copy and share everything" or "copy and selectively edit." This challenge required a change of colors and stamps!The "ORIGINAL" from page 176 of the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog:
My CASE: I used the stem flower from "Touches of Texture" (AC page 152) in place of the feather stamp. I mixed Melon Mambo ink into the embossing paste and used that to build my color palette. I kept the vellum underlay because it adds a pleasing layer without intruding.
I used Stampin' Blends markers...Calypso Coral Light & Dark, Rich Razzleberry Light & Dark, Old Olive Light and Dark...to color the flowers and then I topped it off with Calypso Coral ribbon & the Thank You from "One Big Meaning" (AC page 131)
Because I was having so much fun and I had extra embossing paste, I made a few more, I liked these without the "Thank You" because it makes for a more versatile note card and you can see more of the flowers.
Daffodil Delight and Pink Pirouette
paired with the Rich Razzleberry give this card a lighter look!
You likely wouldn't notice had I not pointed it out, little things like this are always more noticeable to you than anyone else!
A change in ink colors again, and a different background makes for a another different look:
Try a CASE yourself, it's a great way to try a new card layout! And remember, if you make it, send it!
