I'm so excited! I received an invitation last week from my friend and fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Brenda Quintana, asking if I'd like to be part of the blogging team at CASE-ing Tuesday. Every Tuesday, we CASE ("copy and share everything") cards from the Stampin' Up! catalog, putting our own unique and creative interpretation out there for others to view, enjoy, and even CASE. Sometimes, may may change a lot, and other times we may copy it directly out of the catalog.
This week, we were challenged to CASE this pretty card from the page 24 of the 2017 Holiday Catalog, which features the Merry Little Labels bundle and Quilted Christmas Paper. I took one look at it and thought, "Let's pair it up with the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper" and turned it into a black, white and silver showstopper. Although it's hard to see, I 'painted' the trees and deer with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, and then added Black and Silver Rhinestones to make the sky twinkle. I didn't even realize it at the time, but I used the larger star burst pattern as the background, which is mimicked in the smaller label on top of the snowflake with a smaller star burst pattern. It gave me a whole new appreciation of for that designer series paper I've been using all season!
Come play along with us! CASE-ing is a great way to improve your stamping and challenge yourself to try new styles. Create a card based on the above pattern and then post it on the Facebook Post. Or, if you post it elsewhere on Facebook, you can use the hashtag #CASEingtuesday123.
