My good friend Dawn was the Featured Stamper on SCS yesterday!! Congrats my friend!! Of course I had to participate...even if I am a day late. *grin* The card of Dawn's that I cased is HERE. I loved her panels and that they were the same dp as her bg. I also loved the different shapes. So that's what I went with. When you case, the rules are that you have to change at least two different things. My changes: Colors, shapes, images, and I added a button and eliminated the brads.
To start, I wanted to create my own dp with some of Verve's newest releases. I took Antique Linen and Old Paper Ranger Distress Ink and rubbed them directly onto Simply Smooth cardstock (Prism). I then took the large Leaf image from the set Forever in Our Hearts (Verve), and rock 'n rolled it with Oregano and Espresso (Adirondack Dye Ink). I also used the leaves from the set Just For You, and the Plain Jane Leaves. The sentiment is from the Forever in Our Hearts set and is stamped with Espresso onto Neenah Natural White with a silhouette of the Plain Jane Leaves in the bg.
I LOVE my Spellbinders Nestabilities. So for this card I used the Labels I and the Octagon. The button is PTI and the Grosgrain Ribbon is May Arts.
Finally, all the edges were ink distress with Vintage Photo. (I know...shocker ain't it) *giggle*
Hope your week is off to a fabulous start!!
Happy Stamping y'all!!
