CASE: Copy And Share Everything
When I talk with stampers about joining our Stampin’ UP! family they often say “I couldn’t do that, I only copy.” As stated in our bimonthly magazine, Stampin’ Success, there is no shame in copying. It’s just an easy way to come up with a project quickly. What I find is that even if you start out “copying” you end up with a different card. Most often you end up changing up elements of the card that you liked enough to “case”. I look at a card and think, I really like that layout, and I go with it.
So, here is my “caseing” of my uplines card. Sarah made this card when we were at camp and I just loved it. So much that she gave me one! (I didn’t even have to beg, she just gave me one!) Here is a picture of Sarah’s card:
WOW, I guess I forgot to resize this photo. This card is just beautiful. I love the embossing, the color combinations and the fabulous layout. It also uses a piece of one of our doilies. (Which I just LOVE!) Now, here is my version or my “cased” card:
I also embossed the background, however, I choose to emboss a layer, not the body of the card. I used marina mist and real red. Mine turned into a Valentine. I used our real red core’dination paper for the hearts. The embossing folder we both used: lacy brocade. I also added a few rhinestones for a little bling!
I am not going to ask which card you like better. I just want you to know that anyone can do what we do. All you need to be a Stampin’ UP! demonstrator is a love for stamping and sharing what you love with everyone around you!
