Crazy Crafter's August Blog Hop with Special Guest - Jennifer Michalski



Welcome to another wonderful Blog Hop with the Crazy Crafter's. We have a super doper busy month this August with lots of Blog Hops planned, so make sure you pop back throughout the month to see what else we have been up to.

This time we are CASING - Jennifer Michalski - click here to see her personal blog

It was so hard to decide which card to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) but in the end I really liked the following card. It was one of the Global Design Projects with a challenge to use the following 3 colours - Melon Mambo, Smokey Slate and Basic Black. As these are 3 of my favourite colours I had to choose this card.

Here is Jennifer's Card:




and here is the card that I came up with:



I used the following stamp sets:



Here is a photo of the card before I attached the sentiment (couldn't decide whether to use it or not?)

What do you think??


This card has also been entered into the What Will You Stamp Challenge blog #WWYS77 as they are using this particular stamp set for their challenge.

You can see the other awesome entries by following the link.




Inside the card is a panel of Melon Mambo cardstock to break up the black. I really love this stamp set - 'Touches of Texture' - such a fun versatile stamp set! The sentiment is from the stamp set 'Thankful Thoughts', another favourite of mine at the moment.

I used some dimensionals to lift up the sentiment and make it pop off the card. I also placed a dimensional behind the two individual flowers too that I punched out to give them a raised look and add depth to the card (top left hand side of card).

Thanks for visiting and please feel free to leave a comment - I would love to know what you think of this card!

Enjoy the rest of the Blog Hop and don't forget to have a look at the other amazing creations from the Crazy Crafter's Team!
