C.A.S.E. A Card Blog Hop

Welcome to the 



Remember the old kids game, Telephone? You know the one where a secret is told to the first person in line and then they tell what they think they heard to the next person and they tell the next person and so on and so on.  At the end of the line, the person says what they heard and the first person tells what they originally said and laughter erupts because the two things are nothing alike. 

Well today's hop plays that game, but with card making instead of secrets.

This hop is un-like any you've probably ever been too. 

We took one card created by Theresa from ScrapsByGracie and sent it to the next blogger who then C.A.S.E.d the card (copy and steal everything) and sent her card on to the next blogger who C.A.S.E.d it and sent her card to the next blogger.  You get the idea. 

When you are done hopping you'll see how different or maybe how similar the last card is to the first.

So let's get hopping.

I created the first card in the hop while playing around with this sketch.


I moved and removed elements until I got the look I was happy with.  Don't be afraid to play with card or scrapbook layout sketches.  They are meant to be a guide and to jump start your creativity.  You don't have to create them just like you see them.

So here is the card that I created.


I used Ranger Distress Inks over a stencil to create the background. 
Then stamped over that with Memento Dewdrop Inks using the rock and roll
technique to achieve the multiple colors on each stamped image.

I really like how it turned out.

Now hop off and see how Sandy C.A.S.E.d this card to create her own unique and wonderful design.

Here is the full line-up in case (hahahaha, ok I can't help it I crack myself up) 
you get lost along the way.

Sandy Bell Hentzel www.scrapbookblessingsclub.com
Jessica Douglas Wilson www.stampinandcraftin.blogspot.com

You'll be amazed at how this simple card based on this simple sketch gets changed up along the way.
Don't forget to comment and follow all the blogs to be entered into the drawing. Winner will be posted on here on Wednesday and the winner will have 7 days to claim their prize.



Happy Hopping
Theresa
