In Any CASE...

Join us twice a month as we CASE, “Copy And Selectively Edit”, artwork created by the Art Department of Close To My Heart as showcased in the current Idea Books and our Make It From Your Heart How-To Books.

On the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month, at 7 pm CST, we will direct you towards a piece of art and recreate it using the exact products or others that compliment its initial design. Tips, techniques and assembly directions will be shared in detail to help you recreate them on your own.

As you reproduce the items we have shared, post them on social media using the hashtag #ctmhinanycase. We will randomly search that hashtag and reward those who CASE our items. Winners will be announced on our blogs so be sure to follow us!


We did take a couple of weeks off, from CASEing, as both of us have been super obligated to other CTMH events and "life stuff". But...we are thrilled to be back with you today.

I couldn't resist using the "Bible Verses" stamp set featured on page 7 of the Idea Book. THIS stamp set can only be obtained if you're a Hostess. Contact either of us for more details. 

While I love the pocket cards that were showcased, I decided I wanted to make a greeting card that followed that of the one in the bottom left pocket. With changing up the size, I decided to add some color and sparkle. Shall we?

You can see how I used the design for the basis of my card, with a little "twist". That's what CASEing is all about, right? Have a point of inspiration and then run with it! 

I'm a bit limited in supplies since I am creating in a hotel room in California so I decided on this. I like the simplicity of it, really wanting to draw attention to the sentiment/scripture. 

The Playful Scallops Embossing Folder added some texture, as did the Silver Glitter Paper. To get the two-toned sentiment, I first stamped the image in Glacier and then the bottom portion on Lagoon. This is a fun and easy technique to incorporate into any artwork. 

Head on over to Melinda's Blog to see how she CASEd the identified card above. 

When you CASE a card from CTMH, or one of us, tag your photo of it on social media with #ctmhinanycase. We're always perusing the web to see what we find so we can award winners with some goodies!

Enjoy the rest of your week!
