Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Valerie Moody

It's Crazy Crafters Blog Hop time again and today we are
CASE-ing (Copy And Selectively Edit) a project made by the very creative Valerie Moody

I'm sure you've seen some fantastic projects already as part of this hop so make sure you check out the rest of the lineup below.

I found it really hard to decide which project to CASE today as Valerie has so many amazing projects.  This is the card that inspired me most though.

I really wanted to try out the technique that Valerie used to make this card.  It's so simple and looks lovely!

To make my card, I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped my Soft Sky ink pad directly onto it.  I then stamped an image from the gorgeous Beautiful You stamp set over the top of the background.

I used a greeting from the same stamp set and then layered the card front onto So Saffron and Smoky Slate cardstock.

This card was so easy and fun to make and I'll definitely be using this technique more often. 

I hope you have enjoyed todays card.  Please take some time to check out the rest of the lineup below.

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Sandi MacIver

Welcome to another Crazy Crafters Blog Hop. Today we are CASE-ing (Copy And Selectively Edit) Sandi MacIver and she is hopping along with us!

We hope that you have fun following along with the hop.  There are so many amazing projects to enjoy.  Make sure you check out the full lineup below.

There are so many inspiring projects over on Sandi's page but my inspiration came from this card.  Isn't it gorgeous!

I love the colours that Sandi used and initially I started to design a card using these colours, but this is what I ended up creating.  Something totally different inspired by the layout of Sandi's card.

The background was created using Pacific Point cardstock and the Confetti embossing folder and I used the Layering Ovals Framelits to cut out two different sized ovals, one in Emerald Envy and the other in Whisper White.

The birthday greeting was stamped in Pacific Point, Emerald Envy and Tangerine Tango ink, using stamps from the Cake Crazy stamp set.  I also added some matching stars from the Brights and 2016-2018 In Colour Enamel Shapes.

I used Stampin' Dimensionals to attach both the oval die cuts to the background and then adhered this to a Whisper White card base.
I hope you have enjoyed stopping by.  I should add that the colour inspiration for this card came from Case This Card #CTC018 Colour Challenge which I've also entered this card into.

Please make sure you check out the rest of the lineup below.  I’d love to hear from you too so please leave a comment!
