CASE a card Monday

Did you see my post on Saturday where I started a series of posts spotlighting crafty folk that I admire? If you missed it you can find it here.
I thought that as a spin off to this series it might be fun if I pick a card from that crafter to put my own spin on, and share that with you on a Monday.

Don't know what CASEing a card means?

CASE stands for copy and share everything, but usually people don't just do a straight copy of someone else's work as this is generally frowned what does caseing a card actually mean? Well usually it means that you take inspiration from somethings or things you see in the work you are caseing.

Here's some examples:

Just match the color combo.
Change the theme/sentiment.
Flip it horizontally.
Match how they used an embellishment.
Try the technique they taught.
Use their card as a “sketch” to start with.

That being said I've actually taken inspiration from 2 of Laura's cards rather than one.

Here's what I did, and at the end of my post I've shared Laura's original work and linked back to her post on her blog.

So which cards of Laura's did I take inspiration from?

From this card I took the colour combo,  the ink blending and emboss resist.

SSS-Kristina's Love

and from this card, I took the basic layout (though I flipped it horizontally and used some speech bubble dies for the sentiment), and the stamp and die set and background stamp.

SSS-You Matter:

What I used to make my card:

Smooth white cardstock
Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock
Versamark Ink
SSS You Matter Stamp and Die Set
Fine detail white embossing powder.
Distress Ink: Pinked Raspberry, Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon, Cracked Pistachio
Purple Sparkle Cardstock
Whimsy Stamps - Say What? Speech Bubbles Dies
Lucy's Little Things Jewels -Ice Cube Mix
Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins

So there you have it. If you would like to join in the fun, please leave a link to your post in the comment section below, and I will pop across and visit you and leave you a comment.
