Well I googled it tonight and found the explanation in this blog post. It actually stands for Copy And Share Alike. Makes sense!
Here's the card I CASEd:
And here's my version:
The colours aren't my usual style but I like the way they work together. I used them to follow with the Helping Hudson Challenge No.2: Colour at the Helping Hudson blog. Click here to visit the blog and find out about Hudson, and the challenges. It's a truly worthy cause!
I don't have any of the actual colours (Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Not Quite Navy), so I improvised with my Grant Archival pastels and brights collection of 12x12 papers.
I used my Versamark inkpad for the first time tonight, and I went to town! I paired it with Seafoam White embossing powder from Stamp It. Gosh that stuff sticks! I used my homemade embossing buddy (read: cornstarch in a baggie) beforehand and it still stuck everywhere. Luckily it was holding on tight to the versamark like there was no tomorrow - I was able to blow on it and tap it on the back to my heart's content, and it only shifted the bits and pieces that weren't stuck to the versamark.
I also versamarked the blue strip and THEN stamped the sentiment and embossed it (I know! I like to live life on the edge eh?)
To combat the stickiness (as versamark stays sticky for a LONG time in case you didn't know) I dobbed on it with my homemade embossing buddy and that stopped the previously sticky bits of versamark from being sticky. This allowed me to stamp the sentiment and emboss it more or less easily (read: by thumping it repeatedly on the back and blowing on it till I started getting light-headed).
