CASEing “Tag You’re It”

Hi, it’s Maureen stopping in to share a card I made this past weekend while visiting with Catherine in NY.  We got together to stamp and make some plans.  Sounds fun, right?

The stamping part- well, we didn’t make much progress, lol!  CP only made ONE card the whole weekend!

More important, though, was the planning part.  We made some amazing plans for the rest of the year for Stamp of Approval, StampNation (including upcoming events!) and a few more things that we are delighted to share with you later this year.

For my card today, I turned to StampNation.   Dream Team member Allison Cope started a fun game on SN and I was inspired!

I didn’t get a chance to play in this round of “Tag You’re It” but while browsing through all of the member entries I came across this card by Marlene Bonetti and knew I had to CASE it!

Can you see where I pulled inspiration?

  1. sentiment on a circle framed with flowers
  2. color palette
  3. circles (polka dots)

 

I took all of these ideas to my work surface and got busy stamping.  I choose to use the same colors as Marlene but went with different shades, so our end results are much different.  Marlene’s card is soft and pretty while mine leans more toward bold.

I stamped both my background and sentiment rather than using patterned paper and die cuts.  My card definitely resembles Marlene’s but it has a look all its own.

CASEing is a great way to jump start your creativity!   If you are a StampNation Member, be sure to check out this fun game and get inspired for your next project.

What’s your go-to for inspiration?

    I loved both cards. Catherine you said your card was bold, please explain as I thought you card was soft. I am patting my back as I finally was able to pick out the items you used for yours . Even know it was a simple card they turn out different. Thank You for sharing. Sandy

    Hi Sandy! Maureen meant her color palette…it’s more bold that Marlene’s. Hope that helps!
