Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Rachel Tessman

Hello and welcome to the today's blog hop with special guest Rachel Tessman, a hugely successful demonstrator from the US, she has been stampin' for 18 years, WOW!

As a Crazy Crafter, our task is to CASE (copy and selectively edit) one of Rachel's creations, not an easy task with so many wonderful creations on show at "stamp you art out", after much deliberation I decided on the below card

I liked the effect of the die cut element in conjunction with the use of DSP - you know, the pretty paper we all have, but so many of us don't cut into, bahhahaha! Here is my CASE using those 2 elements:

I created a window frame by taping 2 square die cuts together, and cut 3 layers, then cut into a sheet of Delightful Daisy DSP and layered beneath the frame. Now for the Die cut elements, the Jar of Love double set has a gorgeous coordinating flower, woot - this is what I love about Stampin Up! items coordinate between sets making them so versatile.

I "stamped off once" and used the 2nd generation ink for the main stamping of the flowers, then re-inked and stamped at full strength for the smaller of the 2 step stamping using Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder and Pink Pirouette, stamped some foliage then die cut the elements, and added to the top left of the frame.

Lastly adding the simple sentiment, and some Rhinestone bling (I have to have a little bling, hahaha).
