The Spot Challenge #146 - Case the Designer Jay Soriano

 Hello there!  Hope you are having a happy Tuesday!  I have such a fun challenge to share with you today!  Over at The Spot we are Casing the Designer, Jay Soriano!  So in case you don't know, to CASE means to Copy and Selectively Edit or Copy and Share Everything.  I like to use the selectively edit version when I CASE cards.  I use the original as an inspiration and carry some aspects over and edit other aspects.  You can choose your own style of CASEing!

If you don't know Jay, you are absolutely missing out and need to head over to his blog Mitosu Crafts right away!  Both Jay and Barry are fabulous!  Jay has such a fun and unique style.  His watercoloring is amazing and he has so so many absolutely awesome cards that choosing one will be really hard!

Here is Jay's card that I chose to CASE..

  I loved his card but as you will see I changed a few things up.  I those this card because I absolutely loved the tone on tone with one of the die cut images standing out.  Also, this is pretty far away from my style and seemed like a little bit of a challenge to me.

Here's what I made using Posted For You Bundle.. I love anything that has a punch!

Instead of White Cardstock, I decided to go with Very Vanilla Thick 11" x 4 1/4" for my card base, scored at 5 1/2".  My next layer was 5 3/8" x 4 1/8" Very Vanilla Card Stock embossed with the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  I stamped the bird image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Very Vanilla Cardstock and used my Balmy Blue, So Saffron and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends to color the image in.  The colored image was punched out the the Postage Stamp Punch as well as three plain Very Vanilla Postage Stamp Shapes.  All four of the images were popped up over the embossed layer with Stampin' Dimensionals.  The sentiment "Just a note" was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto a scrap of Very Vanilla, fussy cut, and then attached with Liquid Adhesive over the colored image and a small snipet of a dimensional over the section that hung off the stamp shape.  I finished it off with one Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you'll hop over to Mitosu Crafts and find one of Jay's amazing cards to CASE.

Blessings!  Tina
