Borrowing an Idea (CASE)

Scrapbookers and cardmakers have been borrowing ideas from each other for years. In fact, many blogs, including mine, encourage others to take the ideas and run with them. Usually the stipulation is to give credit to the person you borrowed from; however, some bloggers ask that you not submit your creations to magazines. When you borrow an idea, be sure to check if the blogger has posted limitations on using their ideas.

So now you are asking why did I start this blog about borrowing ideas? Well......

Today's Your Next Stamp Challenge #30 is to CASE a YNS Design Team member. What is CASE?
CASE is an acronym for Copy And Share Everything. The idea is that you choose a specific piece of work and take inspiration from it. You can be very literal when CASEing and create an exact copy of the work you have chosen as inspiration. Alternatively, you can use the work you have chosen to copy as a starting point, lifting just one or two elements - e.g. the general style of the piece, or perhaps a colour.

For your YNS CASE creations, we would like you to....

1. Choose a YNS DT member (they are listed on the side of my blog)
2. Visit their blog
3. Pick one of their creations (past or present - any creation) that inspires you, and...
4. ...CASE it!

You can read more about the challenge HERE, which includes the DT CASE samples, information about the prizes, and  the link to post your creation.

Here is my CASE.
