Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop, today we have the super talented Paula Dobson from New Zealand joining us special guest! What makes today so great is that we get to CASE a project and hop along with Paula - Awesome! We hope you find great inspiration from the projects. The full blog lineup below will help you move along to see all the projects.
I so love Paula's style, I spent quite some time viewing her amazing work, then I found it, here is the card I decided to CASE:
There are so many aspects of this card I adore, the colours, the sunset, the layers, but what most drawn to was the sponging technique - I'm normally a clean lines kinda girl, but I really liked the rugged hills and foreground and those sunset layers, what I was inspired to create:
I created the mounds of snow by tearing paper, yes you heard right, I didn't cut I, tore the paper! I've used Smoky Slate and Soft Sky for sponging snow using the torn paper as a mask at the base of the beautiful trees from Thoughtful Branches - I didn't ink the stamp to the bottom of the trees so it looks like the snow is piled up high. To create the Gold edging I used Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder around the edge of a piece of card stock - here's a here is a picture from a card I made last year to give you a visual of what the embossed edge looks like before all the layers are put together
One of the reasons I love doing this is that border then perfectly matches the embossed sentiment. I love the combination of Gold with Always Artichoke - makes for an elegant Christmas Card don't you think?
I would love it if you could pin my cards!
