Welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne, Australia and our July Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop. We are a team of 24 Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who are representative of the various Stampin’ Up! markets around the world.
This is a very exciting hop as we get to CAS(E) -Copy and Selectively Edit or Copy and Share Everything – one of our team members. We have 2 special guests this month – Kylie and Bruno Bertucci and they too will be part of the CASEing. The names were drawn under strict Facebook Live conditions by Angie Mackenzie. I must say, it was very exciting to watch her draw from the 2 piles of names she had.
I’m so excited to be able to CASE Chris Smith today whose FB account I have been stalking! Chris creates amazing projects so I had much to choose from. I kept saying, oh I must CASE that and I must CASE that. I chose both a stamp set and a layout from one of Chris’ beautiful cards.
Here is Chris’ project which I have CASEd. I love the monochromatic look of this card and the beautiful soft tones. As I was writing this post, I realized I had unwittingly used the same ribbon Chris had on her card as well. You know what they say- great minds!
I created a Front Flip fancy fold card and used a very similar layout to the card Chris created. I stamped one of the peony stamps all over the Whisper White cardstock to create a beautiful background. The main peony has been coloured with a combination of Stampin’ Blends to achieve this shaded flower. You can find the measurements to create this card in my original post featuring this fold.
So in this challenge, Tania Tobin got to CASE me. Now to add a little bit of extra fun, I thought I’d CASE one of Tania’s cards and again I went for a beautiful and simple layout which she featured on this poppy card.
I die cut 4 rectangles and embossed them with the Tasteful Textiles embossing folder. The tulle ribbon was sponged with Balmy Blue to coordinate with my card.
I added a die cut sentiment from the Well Said dies to keep the card simple in design. A few sequins add some sparkle to this card. This fun layout is great to try with different patterned papers and colours.
