Update Tuesday - April 21, 2020 - Above the Clouds Card


Welcome to Update Tuesday!  Stampin' UP! shared so many wonderful things today with its Independent Demonstrators...not just the card I'm going to show you.  If you are a demonstrator, you know.  IF you want to know...Join My Team Here: https://valeriesmith.stampinup.net/join_now  

In our Succeed Weekly Email we received today there were four amazing cards to choose from.  I instantly fell in love with the Above The Clouds card on the right.  Well, actually I fell in love with all of them but that one is my fave.

Today's post was all about CASEing...Copy And Share Everything!  The focus was on CASEing Techniques and color combinations.  Here's how they did that today: 
"We selected the Enjoy the Little Things card from page 125 of the annual catalog as the inspiration piece. Then, we used these CASEing techniques to create three additional projects.
  • Copy the color scheme. The Great Places card uses the same color scheme as the inspiration piece.
  • Copy the technique. The Thanks card copies the technique of the original card by incorporating a die-cut background with separate cut-out pieces added back in.
  • Copy the layout. Take the guesswork out of project design by using the inspiration piece as a template as we did on the Love & Joy card. Simply mimic the design but substitute different stamps, paper, and accessories."
This card makes me happy!  What do you think?

I think the sentiment used for this card from the Above The Clouds Stamp Set would be perfect for graduation cards...and even this card would make a nice graduation card!

I appreciate you being a part of my Stampin' Journey!

I live & love to inspire you!
