Crazy Crafters May Blog Hop with Special Guest Dena Rekow

Thank you for joining us for the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop in May.
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 this hops participants at the bottom of this post.

I hope as you hop around you find lots of ideas for your projects.

We are  very excited this month to be hopping with Dena Rekow from The Creativity Cave, all the way from the U.S.A. I know right? Another big name guest, we are so lucky!

I LUUURRRRVVVE Denas work, so another easy project for me.
When we have a special guest, we get to CASE them, meaning Copy And Selectively Edit one of their projects and we get to choose whatever we like.

I chose this project of Denas to CASE

OH MY GOODNESS....Where do I start?..there are so many things I love about this card.
It's simple, elegant and so pretty.

Here is my version

After I chose this particular card to CASE, I realized I didn't have any Water Color paper!
That's ok, I can work around I have just stamped the stripe background with the Brushstrokes background stamp.

I have also used two of the new 2016-2018 In Colours:

My fave element of this card is the vellum flower

So with this CASE, I have kept the layout roughly the same, just offset the background layers, used different colours and a different stamp set for the greeting.

This is the first time I have used these two in colours and used them together.
Here is a list of supplies I used to make this card.

  • Peekaboo Peach Cardstock
  • Dapper Denim Cardstock
  • Thick Whisper White Cardstock
  • Vellum Paper
  • Brushstrokes background stamp
  • Fun Flower Punch - This item is retiring!
  • Botanical Blooms Dies - for the glitter leaf
  • White Perfect Accents - for the centre of the flower - these are Retiring!
  • Silver Glimmer Paper
  • Mixed Borders Stamp Set - new Annual Cataloge set - for the sentiment
  • Dapper Denim Ink Pad
  • Peekaboo Peach Ink Pad

Thank you so much for taking the time to hop around and stop by and check out my project.

Be sure to keep hopping to check out all the other amazing creations from our talented team.

Until next time
Craft long and hard
