CASE Showcase #6 – Mary Brown

Hello bloggies!

I have a great card to share with you today … I loved this idea as soon as I saw it … and decided that you could use so many stamp sets with this design. The original design comes from Mary Brown … one of the well known “Create with Connie & Mary” founders. Mary has such a professional way of putting cards together … I am in awe of her work! Here is the inspiration for today’s CASE Showcase card …

And … here is my “copy cat” card!

One of the things that drew me to this card was the colour! I soooo love green. But … I decided that part of my “selectively edit” tweak to this CASEd card was to change the colours. I left the design layout pretty much identical. Another excuse to use my new “Build a Cupcake” Punch … and I was really pleased with the result. I did use some glossy white card for the cupcakes. I love the depth of ink colour that you can get when you stamp on glossy card. You just need to be careful not to slide the stamp on the card. It is a little slippery for stamping! 😀 This photo captures the “gloss” quite well.

Day 6 of my holiday … and suddenly the week seems to be disappearing. When your break is only such a short one … it is hard not to start counting it down almost before it even starts. We so desperately needed this break … but couldn’t manage more than 6 days away. I do hope we feel the benefit … even though it is shorter than we hoped for. Having said that … I don’t want to be complaining. It is such a blessing that we managed to get away at all! So … I am trying to be content. 😀 Hope your week is as nice as mine! 😀 Hugs xxaxx

    Another great card. Relatively simple, but with a real ‘wow’ factor. I might have to have a go at a card like this.
    I hope you are having a fantastic weekend to top off a beautiful week – at least it only rained for half of the day today! 😯 It is pretty waterlogged around here! 😉
    Thanks for sharing – I’m loving your ‘showcase’!

    I love your ‘cashews’ (is that what their called) on the icing! Lovely!
    Andrea adds: Giggle … I think you mean “cachous”! LOL! But … cashews would be good too! 😀 I got these pretty silver half pearls from a lovely blog friend, Silke! Hugs xxaxx
