Crazy Crafters April Blog Hop with Special Guest

Thank you for joining us for another Crazy Crafters Blog Hop in April.
If you haven't joined us before, Welcome!

You may have just come from the previous person or you may be starting here at my blog Michelle Mills. If you lose your way and get off track, there is a full list of the line up at the bottom of this post.

I hope as you hop around you find inspiration for your projects.

We are  very excited this month to be hopping with the one and only Mr Brian King from the USA. 
Us crazies love Brian, some of us have even been lucky enough to meet him.
Not me, yet. 
So this is the next best thing.

I'm a huge fan of many top name demos in the U.S and Brian is one of them.
Its not often you see a bloke making cards....but a bloke making stunning cards...cue Brian.

So for this hop, I have chosen this project of Brians to CASE.
(Copy And Selectively Edit)

One element I LOVE about Brians cards is the simplicity. His style is not over the top and busy.
This colour combo also jumped out at me so I knew I had to CASE this card.
Here is my version:

I have also used Mint Macron with Melon Mambo and Whisper White.
I have kept the layout the same but just changed a few elements.

1. I have used a different designer series paper for the main background but kept the same colour.
2. I have used a different stamp set on the Melon Mambo background piece.
3. I have used a different stamp set for the sentiment and stamped in Mint Macaron rather than black.
4. I have used a different flower to Brians card. He has actually used the small flower die from the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies set. I have used the flower punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack.

I really enjoyed making this card, as I do many of Brians cards.
I made this card with mums in mind as it will be Mothers Day soon in Australia.
I also found this quick and easy to make, you should give it a try.

Here is a list of supplies I used to make this card.

  • Mint Macaron Cardstock
  • Melon Mambo Cardstock
  • Whisper White Cardstock
  • 2015-2017 In Colour Designer Series Paper Stack
  • First Sight Clear Mount Stamp Set
  • Suite Sayings Clear Mount Stamp Set
  • Itty Bitty Accents Punch pack
  • Pearl Basic Jewels
  • Mint Macaron Ink Pad
Thank you so much for stopping by to check out my project.

Craft long and hard
