CASE = Copy And Share Everything
I love stampers, they are generous and love to share what they have been creating. In the beginning everything I created was copied. Now it is a huge compliment when someone copies my work, of course I appreciate when they mention who inspired them. It is important when we CASE to give credit where credit is due.
I created the Just in CASE series to demonstrate how the Stampin' Up! catalogs are full of inspirational samples and ides. As Stampin' Up! demonstrators we also get inspiration from an exclusive website just for Stampin' Up! demonstrators and every quarter Stampin' Up! sends out a too. And, if you become a SU Demonstrator you get a quarterly magazine called Stampin' Success full of more papercrafting ideas.
When you CASE you can copy the card exactly or change up the stamp set or colors or maybe even both, but if you go too far you are then creating your very own card and just are inspired by the card or project you started to CASE.
Stamping changes I made in my CASE'd card...
- For my card I replaced the Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper (DSP) with a piece of Candle paper from the Party Animal DSP.
- I replaced the stamped image from the Cake Crazy stamp set with one from the Big on Birthdays. I embossed the greeting with White Embossing Powder just like the concept artist did.
- I replaced the Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim with the Emerald Envy Rushed Ribbon
Do you feel guilty when you copy a card? Don't it is a high form of compliment. I wouldn't share them here with you if I didn't want you to CASE them.
I have embossed more in the last month than I have in the past couple of years. It makes such an impression and is really very simple to do. I think I mostly hated the mess of the powder but have learned it is easy to just wipe up the random misplaced powder with a baby wipe, problem solved.
Be sure to you your embossing buddy to wipe over your cardstock before you emboss so you don't get random flecks of embossing on your project.
Easy Embossing Steps...
- Run your Embossing Buddy over the cardstock to be embossed.
- Stamp image with Versa Mark Ink
- Power your powder over the stamped image.
- Tap off powder
- Heat image
