Bloggers Challenge Friday

Welcome to another Bloggers Challenge Friday! This week my challenge to the Bloggers Group was to CASE one of the other Bloggers Challenge Members. Now let me tell you there is a lot of talent in this group, so picking one person to CASE was not an easy task. CASE means different things to different people Copy And Stamp Exactly/Copy And Steal Everything...When it comes to CASEing, I'm more of an inspired by type of stamper. I like to use sketch layout/color combinations that sort of stuff, but not a true stamp exactly type of stamper...

I chose to use this card from Kerry as my CASE. Besides Kerry's awesome coloring, she has a knack for using designer paper on her cards, an area that is not my strong point, as I'm more of a create your own background using techniques type of gal. Now mind you Kerry and I have a very different type of stamp style, I can honestly tell you I own no Riley's/Hannah's or those beautiful Magnolia images she uses, so I did not fully CASE her card. Rather, I borrowed her layout and designer series paper idea for the sketch. I did omit the ribbon, and in it's place used the Drywall Stitching around my Basic Grey Perhaps paper. Thanks Kerry for the inspiration!

The beautiful image is from Kitchen Sink Stamps new release Multi Step Baby. I mentioned the other day on stamping the images out of order to help line them up easier, for this one I stamped #3 in Regal Red, #4 Regal Red, #2 Pretty in Pink, #1 Pink Pirouette. The layers were cut with the Big Shot and Spellbinders Circle & Scallop Dies. The sentiment is from this same plate - stamped in Black using a SAMJ.

Beautiful DSP! Love your case of Kerry, using your own unique style!

Wonderful card. Your style is so unique and you did a fabulous job caseing Kerry (who's card was adorable) with your own take on her sketch. I love the papers and those baby shoes are wonderful (I had some like that too so I guess I'm "Old" as well as Lisa!)
