Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Georgia Giguere

I'm back again for another Crazy Crafters Blog Hop.  This week we are CASE-ing (Copy and Selectively Edit) Georgia Giguere and she is also hopping along with us!

The full list of todays lineup is below, so make sure you head on over to the next blog after visiting here so you can see the rest of the amazing creations.

For todays card, I chose to CASE this card of Georgia's.

I have a lot of washi tape but don't find I use it on my projects much so thought this would be the perfect opportunity to use some.  I decided to pair this up with the Tasty Trucks stamp set, which is one of the free Sale-A-Bration items available this year.  And this is the result...

I just love this little truck, and it's perfect for colouring.  I used my Stampin' Write markers to colour directly onto the truck (Sweet Sugarplum, Blushing Bride, Peekaboo Peach, Emerald Envy, Smoky Slate and Basic Black) and then used some of the Playful Palette washi tape.

I decided to make a couple of versions of this card to use as my customer thank you cards, so I mounted some onto Blushing Bride cardstock, and others onto Emerald Envy before adhering them to a Whisper White cardbase.

I love how the tape adds another level to the card and I'll definitely be breaking out my rolls of washi tape more often!

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you've enjoyed the blog hop so far.  Feel free to leave a comment and please check out the rest of the lineup below.  You won't be disappointed!

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Shannon Lane

Welcome and thanks for joining us on another Crazy Crafters Blog Hop.  Today we are CASE-ing (Copy and Selectively Edit) Shannon Lane.

I've been following Shannon's work for a while now so it's an amazing privilege to not only be able to CASE one of her creations, but to participate in a blog hop alongside her!

I really hope you enjoy this hop as much as I do. Make sure you take a look at the full lineup below to see what other creations the Crazy Crafters have come up with.

For this hop, I decided to CASE these cards.  I really like the layout and how versatile it is.

I've been wanting to play with the Big on Birthdays stamp set for a while now and thought this would be the perfect opportunity.  The stamp I wanted to use though is quite large so I decided to put my twist on the layout and this is the result.

I stamped the image and flowers using Jet Black StazOn ink and coloured the flowers and leaves using Real Red, Garden Green and Pear Pizzazz Stampin' Write Markers.

I then placed a strip of Real Red cardstock behind the white panel before mounting it onto a Basic Black cardbase.

It's difficult to see in the pictures, but I also stamped an image from the Falling Flowers set onto the cardbase using Versamark.

I really like how this card turned out and will be making a few more in different colours!

I'd love to hear from you so please leave a comment below.  Don't forget to check out the rest of the blog hop.  The full lineup is just below.
