Hi everyone, you know I am a really big proponent of using stamp sets for more than one card. I really want to encourage you to get the most out of everything you buy from me. Plus, I want to encourage myself to do the same. I often make cards where I only vary one or two things such as the colour palette or the sentiment and other times every card I make is quite different from anything I’ve done with the stamp set in the past.
Today I am featuring a CASE of a CASE. What does CASE mean? CASE stands for Copy And Share Everything but you’ll notice we talk about the card as being CASEd. It’s a card you make which has been inspired by the work of someone else. Sometimes it is a fairly faithful replication and other times there might only be selected elements which have inspired you. You must give credit to the original designer especially if you decide to post your version on social media.
Anyway, back to my CASE of a CASE. I recently shared a card inspired by a card featured on page 3 of the Occasions catalogue. You can see that card here. I really loved it and decided I wanted to make it again but this time using Highland Heather as my card base. It’s one of my favourite colours in the range. Oooh, that is a big call, isn’t it? It’s true though.
So, I’m using the All That You Are stamp set and I’ve inked up the large floral image with Highland Heather and stamped all over my cardstock. I stuck with the same colour palette as my original card for the rest of the design –Flirty Flamingo, Petal Pink, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green. I stamped out some of the floral images but reversed the colours for the flowers (the bigger flower is Flirty Flamingo and the smaller flowers are Petal Pink). I cut the flowers out using the coordinating dies from the Frosted Bouquet Framelits dies. I also needed a few more die cut leaves – thank you Rose Trellis die set. I stamped the sentiment, cut some vellum and then layered all the bits and pieces together.
Here’s the card…
To be honest, I think I prefer this version to my first attempt. What about you? Do you have a preference?
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
