Crazy Crafters Blog Hop | Special Guest Dawn Olchefske





Welcome to our mid week Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest Dawn Olchefske.  What an honour for us to be CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) one of Dawn's fantastic projects! 

The inspiration came from this card. Dawn has instructions for making this Shadow Box Fun Fold card on her blog, and I am a sucker for fun folds so decided this was the perfect opportunity to give one a try

Blooms & Wishes card created by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC186 #dostamping #stampinup

It's just like Dawn said, these cards are fun and easy to make! I changed things it up a bit and made a winter snow scene for the focal part of the card, I am so excited to share with you how this turned out!


I immediately thought of I card I made a few weeks ago when when I saw Dawns shadow box, so incorporated the design from the card for my shadow card.  


I used Layering Ovals Framelits Dies to cut the window in the top layer of the shadow box, and also created a small scalloped frame and adhered with the fine tipped glue pen. The Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder finished of the design perfectly.




The back layer is sponged lightly with Soft Sky then I stamped the trees then stamped the small trees multiple times with Crumb Cake and VersaMark  used Heat & Stick Powder to heat emboss Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter

I also added a middle layer to my card to project to give a 3D effect for the beautiful Thoughtful Branches trees, here is a close up of the  layer:

  3. Sue, you have hit the Wow factor again. Your Card is so delicate looking, truly beautiful. I adore the Softly Falling TIEF it is so versatile. I also used the heat 'n'stick with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on my Card. It must be the start of the Season for using it.
