Happy Monday! It’s time again to introduce a new Stamp of the Week. We’re now featuring this sweet 902-I Raggedy Anne & Andy stamp. Like many girls of my generation, I had a Raggedy Anne doll when I was little. Mine was a really big doll too… I was 4 years old at the time and she was almost the same height as me!

Check out these adorable cards created by the Rock Stars!

Hurray, it’s Wednesday and time to introduce a new CASE Card Challenge! This week’s inspiration card was created by Rock Star, Ayana Posadas. Don’t you love the clean and simple style and her bold use of color?!

For you newbies out there… CASE is a term people use “to case a card”. Some say it stands for “copy and share everything” and others say “copy and selectively edit”. In either situation, when you CASE a card, you are to some degree copying someone else’s work. You look to their card for inspiration… whether it be the layout, or the color combination or any other design element of the card or all of the above. And then you borrow from that to create a card of your own that may be slightly different, but feels similar.

So a few days ago Ayana shared this card with her fellow Rock Stars and asked them to CASE it. Check out the wonderful cards they came up with!
