Today's inspiration for the design team was to C.A.S.E.
one of the following cards.
Here's what the DT came up with:
For this card I chose to CASE the water color card. Instead of using diagonal lines I chose to mask off a circle for my sentiment. I decided to change it up a bit and make this card a masculine one so instead of hearts on the CASE’d card I used stars. I used a watercolor pallet I purchased at my local discount store and added lots of wet color. Once the water color paper was dry I added the sentiment using My Hero stamp set by Clearly Besotted and added the stars using Simon Says Stamp Lots of Stars stamp set. I then off centered the watercolor paper and added a strip of coordinating green cardstock from my stash and faux stitching. Finally I added my card front to a piece of Black Onyx cardstock by Gina K Designs.
I have been experimenting more with Tim Holtz Distress inks. For this card, I made a mask from a low tack contact paper using the vinyl setting on my Cricut Explore for the name and put that on water color paper. I put a medium purple color on one of the cutting mats from Dollar Tree and spritzed it with water, then applied that with a pouncer on the paper going over everything. I then stamped the stems and flowers by inking them and spritzing with water before stamping on the paper. After I was happy with the look, I removed the contact paper which revealed the name.
I chose to use the stenciled card to C.A.S.E
I stenciled hearts using blue distress inks and added the stencil to the left side of the card. I added a "hi" and some rhinestones. I also mounted the stenciled piece into blue cs. I touched up some edges of the hearts with Wink of Stella.
I cased the card on the left. I kept the split front, but I changed it's location and angle, rather than water color I used a digital image. Instead of stitching the panel, I popped it and kept it the size of the card rather than smaller than shown in the original card.
For my first card, I took elements from both cards. I used the angle from the first card and the stenciling and large black sentiment from the second card.
For my other two cards, I used the same stencil but one is the off press of the first card.
I used bright colors from the Ranger Distress Inks line and blended those onto the card front pieces.
Then I taped down my swirl stencil and sprayed it with pearl spray mist.
I then added the second card front to the top of the stencil and rubbed.
By doing this I got a reverse stenciled effect and didn't waste any of my spray mist.
I repeated the C.A.S.E. samples big bold black sentiment.
Seven designers, two great cards to C.A.S.E. and WOW what different cards.
