WaltzingMouse August CASE Comp

There were so many cards during the WaltzingMouse August CASE Comp that I could choose from, but the card I chose to make was by Design Team Member Kate Whelan.  Here is Kate's inspirational card:
I loved how she made that gorgeous background using the Cameo Creations set.  As pretty as individual cameos are, I really love those images to make patterned paper.  There are endless color and image combinations that can be created.   I didn't just CASE Kate's card, I practically copied it because I really didn't change much of her original design. 

 I repeatedly stamped the small male and female cameos in versamark with the little decorative cross shaped image inbetween the cameo sets.  So simple, but also elegant, at least I think so.  For the brown layer, I stamped the little cross shaped image on an angle to form a cute tin-type pattern and then stamped over that with a Text-It stamp.  Wow, I love those text stamps.  They are HUGE!  I only had to stamp one time and didn't have to worry about lining anything up. So easy.  I tied a cute orange bow and added an oval tag for the sentiment from Cameo to Go.  This was such an easy card to make and I know that I will be doing a lot more experimenting with different cameo patterns for future background paper.  Thanks Kate for the inspiration and to WaltzingMouse for creating such a gorgeous and versatile stamp sets.

This is a beautiful card. I love the orange and brown, and also the little tag you put on the bow. I am going to have you teach me how to make such perfect bows tomorrow.

Oh my giddy aunt! Cathy! This is magnificent. Kate's is lovely but yours....extraordinary! It has been stamped with such symetrical percision. That's my kind of case! The orange and brown are so gorgy together. You sure know how to tie yourself a bow, now don't you? I'd be there all day and half the night trying to get it to look half decent. Hats off to you my crafty friend.

I think the cameo sets make the most elegant and stylish cards - and your CASEd card is stunning. Love the rich, warm colours and fab bow!
