Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday blog hop!  We are a group of international Stampin' Up!® demonstrators who have gathered together for a monthly blog hop.  The blog hop goes live on the 2nd Wednesday of the month.

This month we have a very fun theme...we are CASEing another Around the World on Wednesday team member and we are also teaming up with an AWOW Team member.  I was teamed up with Rochelle Laird-Smith!  Rochelle is from Australia.  We were able to Zoom together and figure out who we were going to CASE.  So much fun!  It was such a treat to connect with Rochelle.  We decided to CASE the mighty leader of the Around the World on Wednesday blog hop, Angie Mckenzie!  We looked at her blog, Nature's INKspirations and picked out a project that would serve as our inspiration and CASE.  Let me tell you that it wasn't easy.  Angie is a very talented stamper and her blog is indeed filled with INKspiration. 


This is the card  from Angie's blog we chose as inspiration.  We also agreed to use the color Lemon Lolly in both of our cards.  


I followed the general layout of Angie's card.  Instead of leaves I used the flowers and leaves from the Paper Florist dies.    I also used the Gorgeously Made dies for the sentiment and the border just like Angie's original card.  The colors I used: Gorgeous Grape, Fresh Freesia, Lemon Lolly, Basic Black, and Granny Apple Green.  The sentiment is  from the Gorgeously Made stamp set.


Inside of the card I added another Gorgeously Made border and a Lemon Lolly flower.


What a wonderful challenge!  Thank you to both Angie and Rochelle for making this such a fun experience and challenge!

Now it is time for you to hop on over to see what the talented  Chris Smith created.

Rochelle Laird-Smith

Ooh I LOVE your flower arrangement Sharon and the colours you have chosen. Beautiful card. It's been a lovely way to get to know you through this challenge x

Cheryll Miller

Oh what a gorgeously exuberant card Sharon. Fabulous case ... It is quite funny that not only did Chris Smith and I decide to CASE Angie, but we chose exactly the same card!!! So four fabulous CASE's of Angie's card on this hop and they are all such different cards! :) xx

Wendy Lee

Such a fabulous case. OK so how long did it take you to cut and assemble all those wonderful flowers? Love it!

Annette Ball

Love it!!

Chris Smith

I LOVE your fresh color combination and beautiful spin on the card so many of us admired! I have a basket of those flower pieces, myself but you have some layers I haven't tried yet. Thank you for the inspiration!!!

Cheryl Hamilton

Gorgeous card! In fact, almost too beautiful to be a card. I might CASE you & frame it!


Really stunning card! I love everything about it.

Jan Clothier

Sharon, this is fabulous! I love that you preserved the layout of the original. The switch up of colour and stamp set really made it your own. The dies look amazing and I can't wait to crack mine open. :-)


Beautiful card ! The effect of these cut-outs is extraordinary, beautiful work!

Melissa Gifford
