On yesterday's Facebook Live video I played along with with the CASE-ing Tuesday challenge for this week. You can watch the video on replay on YouTube or Facebook.
CASE-ing Tuesday is a Facebook group that posts a picture from a current catalogue, along with the layout in a sketch with measurements. The challenge is to use these as inspiration to makeover the card however you like. You can change the layout, colours, stamp set, whatever you get inspired to make. I encourage anyone who is struggling with what to make (that would be ALL of us at some point!) to do some challenges, whether they are sketch, colour or something else.
Here's challenge #257 for this week:
Here's what I made:
I used the same layout and stamp set, but changed up the colours, sentiment, ribbon and card base. I also chose to add some bling.
When I was figuring out what I wanted to do, I decided to choose a colour I hadn't used much recently as my starting point. As I scanned my cardstock, my eye landed on Merry Merlot. Then I chose other colours that complimented it.
One of the things I did was to correlate the same elements between the cards. This means the leaves and sentiment layer that are Night of Navy on the sample card in Merry Merlot on mine. The Petal Pink images and ribbon on the sample are Sahara Sand on mine. The biggest change I made is putting the stamped layer on a Sahara Sand card base instead of Whisper White.
If you choose to play along with this or another challenge I hope you'll share what you make with me!
Here's the products I used to make this card:
I've been paper-crafting since 2006, and an Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator since 2010. I love sharing my craft with others, either through classes or by creating special cards and gifts that meet their needs. Join me in creating fun!
