CASE the Designer: 

As I mentioned this weeks creative challenge is a CASE the Designer Challenge and we are casing the wonderfully talented Maheswari Rajagura.  If you are unaware of what I mean by CASE it means to Copy and Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit.  I picked one of Maheswari's Christmas cards to CASE today and I changed it to a more springtime card.  Here's a look at the card that I CASEd and the challenge image for this week.

I took here design and changed the colors and stamp set that was used and created a Springtime card using the Hydrangea Haven Bundle.  This is one of my favorite bundles from the catalogs.  One reason I love Hydrangeas.  So, it was a must have for me.  I used Gorgeous Grape instead of Poppy Parade, but keep the layout and changed the Stitched Nested Label to a Stitched Rectangle instead.

I stamped the large Hydrangea in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it with Fresh Freesia, Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green, and Evening Evergreen Stampin' Blends.  I then used the matching dies to cut it out.  I used Gorgeous Grape and Fresh Freesia Ribbons where she used the Silver Edged Ribbon and some cardstock.  I did a little heat embossing for the sentiment and a flicked on some ink in the same colors as the blends to the stitched rectangle.  I added everything to the card with Foam Adhesive Sheets, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, and Stampin' Dimensionals.

For the inside of the card I added a piece of Basic White to have a place to write a personal message.  To add a little interest to the inside of the card I matted the Basic White layer to a piece of Gorgeous Grape.  I also added a strip of Basic White that I added the same splatters of ink as the stitched rectangle.  I also added a little strip of Gorgeous Grape behind this strip to tie in the Gorgeous Grape a little more.
