What is a CASE Challenge?
So what is a CASE Challenge? It is when someone puts out a sketch idea for others to use creatively in their own creations. I am often asked what does CASE stand for. Simply put CASE: Copy And Selectively Edit.
So if you see a card creation you like, you might choose to try and make it yourself. Either an exact copy, but with your own supplies and stamping technique. But you might decide you like most of the original creation, but either you don’t have exactly what was used or you might want to change an element of the card. We would call this selectively editing!
However you feel about it, it is always a good idea to give credit where credit is due. But also, be proud of your own creative projects and share them too.
How do play along in a CASE Sketch Challenge?
Anyone is welcome to play along in my CASE Sketch Challenge. I participate in many on the Internet sponsored by other demonstrators and paper crafters. I post to there BLOG and then I share it here with all or you as well. Here are some of my favorites to follow.
- Freshly Made Sketches (#FMS)
- Global Design Project (#GDP)
- CAS(E) this SKETCH! (#CTS)
- Fab Friday (#FabFri)
Currently I am sharing a weekly CASE challenge with my BLOG followers. I am calling a MYSTERY CASE Card Challenge. Each Monday I present a card project following a loose set of clues. The clues are posted the prior Saturday, so if anyone wants to get there crafting items together before hand, they can craft along with me.
When you play with me, I have no real rules! You are welcome to create with any materials you own and try to create a card project following the sketch offered. But really, it is a sketch, so you can create any project. Just use it as a jumping off point in your creative process and make it your own.
I often say in my workshops… “It’s your card, make it your way!” I mean it too! Have fun, create and then share it with us on the Show & Tell News. If you do share you will be entered into the End of the Month Drawing.
How can you share your creations?
Just email me a photo, by doing so, you are giving me permission to share your project. I will add your name to the photo before posted to give credit to the crafter! You can email the photo at email@example.com
