A Happy New Year Case
The FAB Stampers are back with a fun Happy New Year project. We’re CASEing the Annual Catalog.
A Post From Connie in Canada
Happy New Year everyone. Let’s set aside anything that we didn’t like about 2021 and get ready for a great 2022!
This week the FAB Stampers decided on a challenge. For this week and next, we challenged ourselves and now we challenge you to CASE the catalogue.
I got to choose the card for this week, so I chose one from page 111 in the Annual Catalogue.
So, what is a CASE? That is where we Copy and Selectively Edit another card or project. We take the parts that speak to us; perhaps the layout, the stamps used, the colours, or something else. Use what you like and make it uniquely yours for the rest.
There are many great reasons to CASE another card. For starters, someone else did the creative work for you. You get to use their ideas without having to come up with them yourself. It is kind of like a mini card class!
Another fun thing about CASEing (yes, this is a stamping word!!) another card is how different the finished cards can look. Sometimes it is really difficult to see how they are the same, and that is fine. if it inspired your creativity, it did what it is supposed to do.
Here We Go!
The card in the catalogue has stamped strips of cardstock, but I swapped them out for You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper.
I changed to a birthday sentiment, using the Enjoy The Moment stamp set, but I did use the Tasteful Labels Dies that were used in the catalogue card. I also added ribbon in a similar way to the original, but used the Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon.
I also added ribbon in a similar way to the original, but used the Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon. I also added some Blue Adhesive Backed Gems, because, well, because I love gems, and these Balmy Blue ones are so pretty!
Thanks for visiting! We hope you enjoyed our CASE card.
We would love to have you make your own, using our samples to inspire you.
If you are in Canada, I would love to have you join me for a crafting adventure. Join my mailing list here and be in the know about all the crafting fun planned for 2022!
A big Thank You to Connie for sharing her lovely card with us.
Stay tuned for my next post, where I’ll share my CASE of this same catalog sample. It has a totally different feel than Connie’s and will show you just how much variety you can get using the same design.
