Welcome to the monthly Crazy Crafters Blog Hop! This month we are featuring special guest Tanya Boser, US blogger at Tinkerin In Ink. Tanya, a registered nurse, has four children and one grandchild, and enjoys crafting as a form of relaxation. This month we are delighted to have picked one of her creations to CASE (copy & selectively edit).
This is Tanya's card I have selected to CASE:
|I Think You're Great|
Here is my card version featuring the elegant new stamp set "Hello Friend":
I selected Tanya's card based on the various layering components, in particular the vellum & ribbon, which came together really well when combined. I selected the stamp set "Hello Friend" that comprises of nine rubber stamps, four of which are sentiments that are unique with differing fonts and sizes. The other stamps in the set include an elegant background stamp, a wreath and complementary flowers and leaves to enhance and personalise it. The colour palette I chose was Powder Pink, Copper, Berry Burst & Whisper White.
After heat embossing the background image, I did a strip of Berry Burst that I wound 3 strands of Burlap Ribbon around and knotted. I layered this with the vellum sheet, which featured a white heat embossed wreath, and adhered copper embossed flowers using mini dimensionals, creating a 3D effect. Powder Pink fussy-cut leaves were added, and pink enamel dots placed in the corners (mainly to hide the mini glue dots that adhered the vellum to the base cardstock).
