AWOW - CASE a Team member


Thanks so Much for stopping by!

For those who are here for the first time, 
my name is Annette Ball, I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in Canada.  Welcome to Stampin' with the Bees.  

Thanks so much to Angie McKenzie for inviting me to participate in the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop!!  I was so excited to be asked!! 

Today's Theme is to case a team member!!  And Lucky me I get to CASE the amazing Angie McKenzie, our creative leader.  I scrolled through Angie's Blog looking for a card that drew my attention to her...I am a sucker for vellum and daisies and absolutely Loved this card and I think I even reached out and asked her how she went about creating it.  We actually met during some demonstrator training that really pushed our limits and got us doing all kinds of new things!! Friendships were born in that group and to this day I still talk to a bunch of those demonstrators.  

Let's tale a look at Angie's card

I Love the watercolour background and the beautiful vellum flower.

Here are my versions and while the daisy punches and stamp set is still available I chose to use a current daisy in the new Annual catalogue.

I used our new Shimmer Vellum in Papaya to replicate the original card, using the Colour and Contour dies.  And I put an Annette spin on it and added some Incolor jewels and linen thread.  Here is a close up.

Shimmer Vellum comes in all the new Incolours so I thought I would replicate the card in the new colours and used Pale Papaya, Polished Pink, Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent.  And then used the same basic layout.

Cardbase is 5.5 x 8.5", scored at 4.25; Granny Apple Green for the first version and Soft Succulent for the second

First layer is watercolour paper 4 x 5.25" 
the second layer is the same colour as the card base and measured 4 1/8 x 5 3/8"

I hope you enjoyed my cards today and they have inspired you to stamp and create.
