Enjoy the Moment - A Little Note

 Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share a card I made for this week's creative challenge over at the Spot.  This week's challenge is a CASE the Designer challenge. We are casing the talented Jay Soriano of Mitosu Crafts.  Here's a look at my version of one of his cards.

Above is a look at the card that I CASEd from Jay.    Below is this week's challenge image. 


It took me a little while to figure out which card I wanted to CASE from Jay. If you are not sure what I am talking about when I say CASE it means to Copy And Share Everything or Copy and Selectively Edit.  CASEing is a great way to improve your card making skills in both designing and techniques.  Because you take a project and do just what I said above.  For my version of Jay's card, I keep the same colors but changed up the layout a little.

Instead of using Forever Fern for the stamp set on my card, I decided to use the Enjoy the Moments Stamp Set on my card.  I kept the ink blended focal point with the Stampin' and blend coloring.  I even kept the same color of the ink blending as Jay did.  I did add a couple more colors of Stampin' Blends on my coloring.  I added in Blackberry Bliss, and Purple Posy to go along with the Highland Heather that Jay used on his card.

I kept the small strip of embossed Blushing Bride that Jay used on his card along with the Mango Melody flowers punched with the Small Bloom Punch.  But instead of doing a Blackberry Bliss card base I created a stitched rectangle mat in Blackberry Bliss and added it to a Thick Basic White card base.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestones to each of the small flowers for a little added sparkle.

  2. Wow Rick!

    You case'd Jay's card and exhalated it by taking it one step further - the CLASSIC case! LOVE IT!

    I prefer the more subtle blend - where one colour gently infuses with another for a more subtle effect and to, in my opinion, to better support the sentiment.

    I love the colours you chose to add to Jay's choice and you kept the embossed strip at the back, introducing a pop of colour to compliment the embellishments and to enhance the bling.

    I'm not convinced about the wide black matt on top of the new white base card, but it's bang on-trend so I'll go with the flow.
