Is it OK to CASE?

Is It Okay to CASE?
If you are new to papercrafting, you may not have heard the term CASEing. “CASE” is an acronym used by papercrafters that means Copy and Share Everything. You’ll find you can be inspired by your surroundings: the trees, birds, flowers, that pretty picture you bought for you living room, kitchen towels, other artists, a new rug or paper or gift wrapping. Inspiration is everyewhere

When we say “copy,” we mean “allow yourself to be influenced by” another papercrafter’s projects. Be assured: It’s perfectly okay to do! Focus on some aspect of their handiwork that you absolutely love and use it to inspire your own creation.

Our concept artist CASEd a captivating “looks-hard-but-it’s-easy” technique to create the Ma Veritable Inspiration card. The trick here is to use a Water Painter to brush over the treetops and trunk to give them that watercolored look. Tip: Add more color to the tree leaves by picking up color from the ink pad.

The Du Bist Etwas Besonderes card features an inspirational, CASEd color combo. Begin by stamping a circle in the lightest ink—Bumblebee—then add the Misty Moonlight and Mossy Meadow circles to complete the composition. For crisp images, place the cardstock over a Stampin’ Pierce Mat before stamping.

Our last project, the You Are Fierce card, features a “wildly” creative, CASEd layout. We used the stamp set’s greenery images to create that purr-fect jungle vibe (and to fill in the corners). We die cut the tiger from Designer Series Paper. Isn’t he cute? Finish by layering the sentiment on top.
