CASE challenge

This week we have a different kind of challenge that we are offering From Our Heart to Yours! The Design Team is sharing cards with you this week that show what they consider their personal card-making style. You can check out what they have to say about their style (and the details about their card) at their blog and then here's your challenge:

Pick one of the DT cards to CASE. That stands for Copy And Share Everything. You do not have to copy it exactly but take the idea for your card from one of the DT cards below. Use the design of the card, the colors, the stamps - whatever you want to CASE from the card. Then create your own artwork and tell us which card you were inspired by and how you made it your own.

Make sense? Take a look at the DT cards below and check out each of their unique styles:







Now let's see your rendition of one of these cards. Remember, you are not copying the card exactly, but rather using elements that can be replicated in your own piece of artwork. CTMH products are a must! Happy CASEing~

I used the design from Jody's card, but I couldn't use the sonoma papers, since the last post on my blog was also Sonoma. But I loved the multiple ribbons, and pin clips are so awesome! Thanks for the challenge!

I am having a great time with the challenges. Thanks so much for the inspiration and the little kick I need to get into the craft room even if I think I'm too tired:)

I chose to case Brenda's card. I'm really into layering lots of patterns and shapes lately!

Annette said...

I haven't participated in a while. I just finished a Back To School layout that's perfect for this challenge. Thanks for all you do to host this blog!

Love all the beautiful inspiration ladies!

I CASEd Michelle's card. My style is more CAS than hers (not to mention more than most). I like clean lines and distressing.

Jane said...

Each card is totally inspirational, thanks to everyone! I chose to CASE Pamela's -- I love circle cards, and had to play with the new Wonderland papers and feel CoOleR here too.

I CASEd Haley's card, I love the colors in the Dreamin' pp and also the rectangle shape of her card. I've been a HTH stalker for sometime! This is my first time to participate.
