Happy Wednesday! Today we’re introducing the last in our CASE Card Challenges. (But not to worry, we’ll have more fun stuff to take it’s place!) This week’s inspiration card was created by Rock Star, Karen Hasheck.

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 Karen shared this card with her fellow Rock Stars and asked them to CASE it. Check out all the great cards they came up with!

Once we wrap up our CASE Card Challenge series we’ll have some fun new challenges in the works for you. I’ll be telling you more about that in a future post. For now, I want to remind you that Our First Blogaversary Hop ends today at 8pm EST. The Rock Stars have created some fantastic cards to celebrate the occasion and you have the chance to win a $35 Repeat Impressions Gift Certificate! So if you haven’t gotten around to it yet, you’ll want to hop to it…. sorry, I just couldn’t resist! 😉 Then be sure to check back here on Friday when I announce the winner.

Thanks so much for joining us today. Hope to see you here again on Friday!

Maybe we should call today “Woohoo Wednesday!!” You know how I love Wednesdays here at The House That Stamps Built! 😀 Today is no exception… we’re introducing a new CASE Card Challenge and announcing the winner from our January CASEs!

This week’s inspiration card was created by Rock Star, Robin Kirkpatrick. What a gorgeous card… so soft and feminine and in my favorite colors! This beautiful, spring-like card sure makes the blizzard outside my window a lot easier to take too!
