Playing Cards With Michele

Happy Wednesday, everyone! On April 13th, Therese Calvird posted this gorgeous card on her blog ~

OK, you can pick your jaw up off the table now :) Therese included two videos...the first, showing us several tips and tricks she uses while stamping with layered flowers...(you can see it on You Tube Here), and a 2nd video Here, designing her BEAUTIFUL card! So, while chatting with my blog friend, Michele, we thought it would be fun to CASE Therese' card! Here is mine:


I CASE'd Therese' design and stamping technique, but went with a different color palette. The flowers (The Sweet Life) and Impression Plate (Picnic Plaid) are from PTI, as are the clear Rainstones sequins.

So, that's it for me today...I hope you'll find the time to stop over at Michele's Blog to see her creation...they're always gorgeous!

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Your card in yellow is lovely, Barb. Has Michele posted hers yet? I was there when she made it, hence the comment about the Altenew stamps. I guess she didn't read the part about yours being PTI.

Barb, now it is my turn to pick my jaw up, this is a beauty! Yellow, is not one of my 'go to' colours and now for the life of me I can't work out why... maybe I just need to do a little reset of the brain. Love how you have clustered those sweet roses in the upper corner and the subtle diamond embossing is pure elegance. I feel very humbled that this was inspired by a card that I created. Big hugs xx

Barb, another fabulous card from yours and Michele's play date! I am very partial to yellow and pink, so it was a delight to see both of your cards today. Layering stamps are hit and miss for me, but you've done a great job.
