Our Creative Corner - Case an OCC Girl

Hello OCC friends. It's Saturday again and we have a wonderful challenge for you this week. We're so happy you have stopped by to see what's happening here at Our Creative Corner. Thanks to everyone who participated in last week's Gotcha Cornered challenge. There were so many fabulous entries. Before we tell you about this week's challenge, we want to spotlight our featured artist Patricia Garcia. Here is her wonderful creation. Hope you will stop by her blog to see more of her lovely work.

And now on to this week's challenge. We’ve got some great talent here (if we do say so ourselves!). This week our hostess, Linda Coughlin, is challenging us to case an OCC girl. Go ahead, surf our blogs and check out our on-line galleries (links on our sidebar). Find a card you like and case it, changing at least two things. Include in your post a link to the cased project and let us know what you changed. This should be lots of fun and we can't wait to see your entries this week.

The design team had a blast casing each other. Here are our samples starting with our hostess.

Linda Coughlin - The Funkie Junkie

Linda cased Sarah Gough with this beauty, changing the stamp sets used, the orientation of the ribbon and flipping the sentiment panel.

Diane Gilbert ~ My Little Stampin' Spot! Diane cased Sarah Gough with this beautiful card, changing the colors, the sentiment and did not add the ribbon.

Wendy Janson - It's All About Stamping
This card is CASEd from Dana Grothaus's card here.

Jennifer Meyer ~ Jennifer's Sweet Designs. Jennifer cased Wendy Janson's yummy card and layout - She changed the colors, used a different border punch and also flipped the sketch. Please stop by my Blog for a chance to win this card.

Dana Grothaus - Dana's Dabbling Studio
Dana picked this great card from Wendy Janson. She added some yellow, switched the pearls to rhinestones, used a different edge punch and changed the sentiment.

Julie Leblanc~Kewlstamps-n-more
Julie cased this card from Dana by doing a digital card, using ribon instead of a strip of dp, changing the shape of the yellow paper and adding a flower brad in lieu of a paper flower.

Lori Rider - The Diva Stamper

Lori picked this card from Sarah Gough. She flipped the layout, changed the colors and images, and used piercing instead of stitching.


  1. I would like to try this challenge but I don't quite get what you mean by 'case' a card. Could you explain what we need to do in a little more detail?

  2. this was a fun challenge Linda-I loved all the dt cases of each other. I chose Wendy Janson for my case

  3. your cards for this week are fabulous. It would be hard to case just one.
    Great job girls!
