Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Wendy Cranford

Welcome!
This week we have another exciting blog hop with Wendy Cranford from Luvinstampin.com. I really enjoyed looking through her blog finding a project that I was going to CASE (copy and selectively edit). The project I chose was this one: I was taken with the colour blending and the use of the die cut over it.
I decided to use a watercolour wash for my colour blending.  I used Night of Navy, Bermuda Bay, and Soft Sea Foam.
The beautiful die cut is from the Lovely Flowers edgelits, which I put over the top allowing some of the watercolour wash to peek through.



I finished it off with some Bermuda Bay ribbon and a sentiment form the Incredible Like You stamp set.

 I love these colours but just think how many other colourways you could do this card!


Give it a try!
But before you do, hop on over to the next blog and see what my fellow Crazy Crafters have designed this week.



Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Patsy Waggoner

This week we are CASEing Patsy Waggoner.
We had to pick a card of hers and Copy and Selectively Edit it. 
It was such a joy to look through her blog (http://www.stampstodiefor.com/patstamps/) and Pinterest page - I was left with plenty of choices.
I picked this one:


I was taken by the colours initially and the white space.
I wanted to make a card with the same use of white space and colours that popped.

Here's what I did with this in mind......


I used the new First Frost from the upcoming Holiday catalogue. This set is gorgeous! Instead of diecuts tucked behind the white panel I stamped in Versamark. The contrast between the colours Blueberry Bushel and Mango Melody really pop.

I love the watercolour look of the stamps.  The sentiment is from the Friendly Expression stamp set - don't you love that font! 
I added a sprig die cut from vellum to add some texture.

You can try this for yourself in any number of colour combination.
You can use any stamps you have on hand, or you can get the new F…

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop - CASEing Jessica Taylor

This week we are CASEing Jessica Taylor - number 118 globally!!!  Wow!!
Looking at her blog I can see why.  It is full of amazing information to help you get started, try new techniques and full of inspiration.
There was plenty to choose from to CASE  - I was spoilt for choice but I loved the look of this collection using a retired Sale-a-bration set.

I updated the look with the new Animal Outing set from the new catalogue (coming very soon!!!)

This set has some very cute animal images - the only one I didn't use was the Giraffe.


The Kangaroo has a little Koala in it's pouch - very cute and a nice tribute to us stampers down under!  I decided, as he had the little arm (?) sticking out, it was just right to hold a sign. I used the Petal passion paper as it has many black and white papers to choose from, and this reminded me of jungle vines.
The Rhino, not often thought as a cute, is just that, especially with the little bird perched on his horn.  The embossing folder reminded me of an…
