Case’ing Trendsetters

Four members of the There She Goes design team are retiring. Jessica is throwing them a Going Away Party and we were invited to case cards from their galleries. There are so many amazing cards to choose from these ladies.

I chose this card from Bev’s gallery. I remembered this card from her blog and loved the beautiful simplicity of it. I kept the layout and the stamps, but changed up the colors, paper & accessories. While playing with this, I did some that had the flowers overlapping, as Bev did, but I wasn’t 100% happy with them.

Next up is Denise. I chose her great Blessings card. I decided to keep this all chocolate, so I went with Au Chocolate dp instead. I really like this paper and I have a feeling I will be wishing that I bought more.

I kept the stamps the same, but used Memento Rich Cocoa for the sentiment and Antique Linen Distress Ink for the cross. I stamped off the cross once before stamping over the sentiment. The bottom is punched with the Martha Stewart arch lattice punch. Instead of brads, I used Dew Drops in Sunflower.

Stephanie is up next and I feel like I am robbing her. Her card is just gorgeous. Since I actually had the Basic Grey Bittersweet paper, I kept the DP and colors the same. I changed up the stamps, ribbon and used Dew Drops instead of rhinestones. The little flower is stamped in Regal Rose ink and painted with pink Shimmerz.

Last, but not least, is Wendy. I chose her cute Hearts for You card. I kept the colors and basic layout the same. Since I am in dire need of birthday cards, I chose to make this a birthday card. I combined two cupcakes from two different sets from TSG. The little cupcake is cut out, popped up and has liquid applique frosting.

This was a ton of fun for me to case these incredibly talented ladies. I hope I did them a bit of justice!
