Happy Sunday my friends.
Time for another Watercooler Challenge (WCC11). This time around we are supposed to CASE a Pinterest creation.
Did I hear someone ask what a CASE is? Simple answer…Copy And Share Everything. Otherwise known in crafting circles as permission to steal someone else’s fun design, add your own tweaks and share the process all over again. In polite circles we say share…in less exalted places we are a tiny tad more honest and use the term steal. LOL.
I hope you’ll decide to play along with this latest challenge and add your own creation to the Challenge linky found here. You’ll also be able to see all of this weeks wonderful team creations at that link.
I found my inspiration here.
Using Nancy Keller’s lovely Christmas card as a starting point I dived into the new Trim the Tree paper stack from the 2014 Holiday Catalog to create my quilt squares with a 1″ punch. Nancy’s basic directions for forming the pattern worked perfectly!
I had a fun time with this challenge. As many of you know I have a real thing for inchies so a design that facilitates that obsession will quickly float to the top of my TO CASE list.
Stamps: Good Greetings (Special Promotion Hostess Set can be seen here)
Paper: Whisper White, Garden Green Cardstocks. Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack (2014 Holiday Catalog)
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Other: Big Shot, Bitty Banner Framelits, Delicate Designs & Polka Dots Embossing Folders, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Paper Snips, Glue dots & Dimensionals.
Nancy’s tips for perfect Inchie placement everytime:
If you have a quilter in your life this may be the perfect card for you to CASE. Whether for Christmas or a general occasion the cozy factor of a quilt inspired card can’t be beat. Working on these types of cards always brings to mind my beloved Mother in Law Dorothy. She was a master quilter and every year I would look for a new design to celebrate her own obsession. I love to picture her heavenly quilt room (after all…even Heaven needs a bit of cozy right?) filled with any pattern she can think of and fingers that never fumble with age or infirmity when hand quilting.
So Mom…this one’s for you!
I hope you are having a blessed weekend and finding time to stamp. Check out Pinterest…consult your imagination and head to your stamping corner and don’t forget to post your own CASE on the Challenge Blog. Oh and if you post…don’t forget to invite the original poster of your inspiration to see what you’ve created and join the challenge!
