In the next post, I posted two featured stamper challenge cards. Commenting in the gallery brought me here to explain the challenge.
What seems like a very long time ago, 2005-2008, I was the hostess of the now extinct Limited Supplies Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. As part of that challenge, I would occasionally have a featured stamper challenge. It was a very well liked challenge so I approached some moderators and started what is now THE Featured Stamper challenge on Sundays. I never intended to hostess it long term and handed it over to another hostess a month later.
I still love this challenge, but I am very saddened that the original intent has disappeared for some stampers. The idea was to make some changes, but it should also resemble the original card. There are so many sketch challenges on the web these days that simply copying the sketch is just that… copying the sketch and not CASEing a card when everything else is different. First and foremost, the image should be similar and then the same or similar sketch. Little things after that can be modified.
CASE = copy and share everything (SCS started out as a Stampin’ Up demonstrator site.)
Here are some good examples of CASEd cards in this week’s challenge:
