Crazy Crafters Blog Hop - Special Guest Nadine Köler

Image may contain: text

Welcome back to one of my favourite blog hops. 
Kylie Berucci's Blog Hops is how I first started learning about blog hops and participating in them. 
Today we are all showcasing the stunning works of Nadine Köler each of us choose a project of hers and CASE it.
What is CASEing
Casing is where we Copy And Selective Edit a project. You can copy everything or only selected parts of a card and then share exactly where you got your inspiration from.
 You are here with me Kim Oliver. 
There is a list of all other paticipants towards the end of my blog.

This is the project I have chosen to CASE

It is a Clean and Simple (CAS) design. 
I adore CAS designs for quick and pretty cards, but I have to admit I am not very good at CAS.
But I keep practising 😉.

Here are my Projects 

I used my favourite suite for these cards.
Can you guess which it is? lol
 It's the Delightful Daisy suite.
The DSP is divine and that Daisy punch WOW it creates flowers that are just gorgeous!

The Delightful Daisy suite will be available in my online store from the 1st of June.

Forever Young

This was the first card I created for this hop.
As you can see I chose to keep the basic layout that Nadine has used for her card.
All I did was cut a rectangle using the square stitched shapes framleits. I then punched out the daisy and backed onto Daffodil Delight.
I added a DD centre to the flower using the Blossom Builder punch and topped this with a silver faceted gem. I added a Silver embossed sentiment and a few diamantes to finish this CAS card.

I liked it so much I did it again in Calypso Coral below.

You Look Gorgeous!

The above card is exactly the same just different colour. Calypso Coral and Powder Pink are teh colours used for this card.

I still hadn't finished with this design!
 I decided I would step it up by adding an embossed background.

I would love to know which design you prefer (for me it's the steped up cards).
The embossing folder I used is called Petal Burst.
I also die cut my daisies in white, shaped them and daubed colour onto them to match the cards colour panel.

It's Your Day

The coloured DSP has been backed and adhered to my embossed base using dimensionals.
I added silver metallic thread under the  flowers.
The flowers have been given a little more lift by popping them up on a dimensional..

Make  A Wish

Just to finish these stepped up cards I added some Rhinestone Diamantes areound the embossed sentiments.

I do hope you have enjoyed my projects today.
Here is the list of all the other participants that have taken part in this wonderful blog hop..

If you have reached the end then I do hope you have found some inspiration too.

Thank you so much for visiting today.

Ooooh I nearly forgot to mention I made a couple of extra cards from some of the scrappy bits. I will share these with you all tomorrow.
