CASE a CAS

For those not up on the lingo....CASE = Copy & Share Everything while CAS = Clean & Simple

It took me a while to realize these abbreviations were not the same thing.  One day I saw someone say a CASE'd CAS and I was beyond confused.  So, after a little searching on Mr. Google, I discovered their true meanings! 

For my club last month, one of our cards was just that, a CAS which I CASE'd from Mary Brown.


I changed up the colors and ribbon a bit, but overall it has a similar feel.  Everyone enjoyed making it.  I think the smearing of ink on card stock is such a neat technique but can be a little scary when you are first attempting it.  Basically, you just go for it and if it messes up....start over.  No harm, no foul.

I used the Four Square stamp set,  which retired last month, along with Chocolate Chip ribbon, Old Olive, Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, and Not Quite Navy card stock, and Chocolate Chip & Really Rust ink pads.

I'm working on my Christmas in July Class and hope to have some of those projects posted soon!  Stay tuned! 

Happy Stampin!
