Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Special Guest Rose Coleman

Hello, and welcome to the last Crazy Crafters Blog hop for 2018, our special guest today is Rose Coleman from Calgary, Alberta in Canada. She has been stamping for 15 years, and has qualified for incentive trips during this time - way to go Rose!

Our challenge is to CASE a project made my Rose, whilst I man have been drawn to the pinks, I am a sucker for fun folds I had my project as soon as I saw this:


Now I don't recall making a gate fold card before, and as I do tend to do, I made a slightly complicated version of the Interlocking gate fold card, due to the layering on the oval frame, anyway, I love the way it turned out and would do it all over again, here's a look at my project.



The frame took a little time to align the 3 elements form the Layering Ovals Framelits:
  1. Large Crumb Cake oval frame
  2. Blushing Bride scalloped edging
  3. Very Vanilla sentiment oval frame
But as I said, I am well pleased with my efforts in lining everything up - washi tape to the rescue to hold the elements in place when running through the Big Shot saved the day!


I adore Stampin' Blends with Petal Palette stamp set, the used with brushstroke stamp imagery they are just perfect (very easy for first time users of Blends) - I've used light and dark Pink Pirouette with light Old Olive and Pool Party on the leaves. I popped a little Copper Metallic Thread with Dimensionals behind the die cut flowers and adhered to the  left hand edge of the frame.

I stamped the sentiment and background using Petal Palette, and then embossed the Very Vanilla background with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured impressions embossing folder, then lightly sponged Crumb Cake over the embossing - it really made the wood grain pop.



I decided to add a 2nd scalloped oval behind the sentiment oval, as the background was embossed it was easy to line up everything up.

I also dressed up the inside of the card, carrying the stamping theme and sponge edges, as will as lightly stamping a Hardwood background.
