Crazy Crafters Blog Hop - Special Guest Holley Stene

Image may contain: text

Welcome back to KOCreations Cards 
So happy to see you all again 😍

Today we the Crazy Crafters are all showcasing the wonderfully talented Holly Stene.
 Holly is also part of the Artisan Team for Stampin' Up!®
OMG !! How awesome is that!!

Each of us are choosing a project to CASE (Copey And Selective Edit) 

You are currently here with me Kim Oliver.
You will find a list of all partcicpants towards the end of my blog.

Here is Holly's project that I chose to CASE.

What drew me to this design is it's simplicity. Just stamp add a ribbon a little bling and voila a sweet birthday card.

Here is my take on this card

Let's Celebrate Your Day

I love flowers! 
Nothing better than being given this type either, as they never die!

As you can see, I kept the floral theme and basic layout from Holly's cards.
 For my card I used the Tranquil Tulips HOSTESS set. 
Only Hostesses and Demonstrators can purchase this gorgeous stamp set!

I fussy cut a couple of my stamped tulip images and mounted them on dimensionals and glue dots. Placing one dimensional at the top with a glue dot at the bottom.
This enabled me to get my tulips off the page a little and add more dimension to my card.

Angled and Open View

  • My card base is Daffodil Delight card stock. 
  • The images have been stamped into Very Vanilla in Berry Burst, Daffodil Delight, Powder Pink, Fresh Fig Old Olive and Lemon Lime Twist. 
  • For a little extra Oomph I added a strip of Pick a Pattern DSP along the left side of the Very Vanilla, all was adhered to the base using Tear and Tape.  
  • The sentiment used is from the 'Bunch of Blossoms' stamp set and was mounted using the 'Lots of Tags' die cut in black. 
  • I also added black metallic thread down the left edge then tied a bow and held this in place with a glue dot.
