CASE - Copy and Share Everything!

Hi everyone! My favorite thing to do when I'm stumped is to surf the blogs of those who inspire me.  I always find a card I want to case! What usually happens is I start out thinking "Perfect, I'm gonna copy this entire card EXACTLY" but as I get going it transforms into something else entirely because my own flavour always comes through.  This is the beauty of casing! It's a great jumping off point. 

Today, my card was inspired by Erica Cerwin.  You can see her fantastic blog at  ... she is great!  This is her card....

And this is my card....
My card uses the new paper daisies, which I simply sponged with ink to colour them.  The centers are punched from Chocolate Chip cardstock, then covered in Crystal Effects, then sprinkled with Micro Beads.  How ashamed I am that I've had Micro Beads sitting in the embellishment drawer for TWO YEARS and not used them! They are awesome - look what I was missing! {Only down size is if you don't prepare your work surface well enough, they WILL run all over the damn place and you WON'T find them again!}  I also cut a swirl from the Decorative Strip die and accented with 2 Old Olive brads.

Here is a close up of the Micro Beads in case anyone is interested: 
Hope you like :)


  1. Luv what you did with the paper daisies! Cute!

  3. Wow, I've never used the micro the way you made the flowers! I'm following from SC now!
