Crazy Crafters Blog Hop | Special Guest Brian King



Hello and welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop featuring Special Guest Brian King. Brian has been and will continue to be an inspiration to me - He is so vibrant, full of energy which show through in projects, I just love his work. After watching his YouTube projects I now hear his cheery  voice as I read through all of his wonderful project details, tip and hints on his blog.

Deciding what wonderful project to case was a challenge in itself, as so many of Brians projects appeal to me, one thing that stands out and gets my attention immediately is how Brian uses border repetition to create layers - I just adore them!  I also love how he incorporates DSP into his projects - something I should use more, Stamping Up DSP is just so pretty, I always look at it and are afraid to cut! Below are are a couple of cards featuring use of borders/layers and DSP - So there you have it, my CASE elements, Layers and using my DSP not just looking at how pretty it is!

An Autumn Thank You with English Garden - STAMP WITH BRIAN: Hello, It's My Party Designer Series Paper Stack, Stampin' Up!, Brian King, CYCI100:


I just adore the Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack, and my favourite colour combo for this DSP was just called to be featured for this CASE.  I love these Calypso Coral flowers, I've use both the Basic Black and Very Vanilla backgrounds on this design - I couldn't choose between them!  Just love how this turned out with the diagonal band separating the DSP, such a cheery flower design, perfect for the Happy Hello sentiment from the Tin of Cards set.



Once you have worked out the size of your borders to create the layers it is super quick to put your card together, I just I had to make another to showcase It's My Party DSP.  This DSP just bursts with colour, the sentiment from Party Wishes can be used to for any occasion, even for when you just want to let someone know you are thinking of you - making this set fab as it is so much more than just for Birthdays.
