Have you heard of CASE-ing? There are different opinions as to what the acronym stands for - Copy And Steal Everything, Copy And Share Everything, Copy And Selectively Edit, and more - but it all means basically the same thing. CASE-ing is when you see a card that someone else has made and you re-make it. You can either make it exactly as it was or you can change it up a bit, which is more often the case. Many stampers use the original card as an inspiration to make their own creation. Sometimes, it may be the layout that speaks to you. Other times, it might be the colors. Or maybe it's the way the embellishments are placed. There are so many different ideas that can inspire you!
Stampin' Up! puts out 3 different catalogs per year. Each of these is filled with amazing examples that you can CASE. For my card today, I CASE'd the card on p. 117 of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. I kept the layout and the same stamps, but I changed the colors. Also, because I didn't have a piece of Granny Apple Green ribbon, I replaced the ribbon with some strips of cardstock. My card looks the same, but different. I've made it my own!
What have you CASE'd lately?
