Crazy Crafters blog hop with special guest Alison Okamitsu - Tutti Frutti

Image may contain: text

Hello everyone 😊
I am so happy you could join me again today. 
I am hopping with the Crazy Crafters team led by the fab Kylie Bertucci with our special guest Allison Okamitsu.
We are all CASEing a project of Allison's and sharing what we create with you here today and I will have a full list of hop participants closer towards the end of this post. You are currently here with me Kim Oliver so, to keep moving through the hop please just click the name in the list directly after mine.

Here is the project of Allison's I was inspired by.

I loved the simplicity and use of colour that Alison's has combined for her card.
Having the stamp set plus the FREE matching cards and envelopes I thought I would have a play. 

Here is what I came up with.
 The elements I chose to use from Alison's card are the small round focal area with the use of a doily piece.

We Make a Great Pear

I chose to cut my Tutti Frutti card bases and use them as layers for my cards. The little doily piece on my card is a small wedge from a whole doily that has just been cut down into four equal pieces. I really like the subtlety of the crumb cake against the light and dark of the Lemon Lime Twist

Sweet Strawberries

I love the vibrancy of this card, doesn't that red just jump out in comparison to the first card? I did think about adding a layer of real red under the top layer of LLT, but I think I ended up just forgetting about doing it, haha. The card looks lovely without it though. I can always make another and add it 😊

 I have added offset sentiments to all of the cards. I enjoy using this technique at times as it gives another layer of interest to a simple layout.

For my last card I kept the LLT in play but this time mixed it with the light and dark of the bold Calypso Coral. I was pleasantly surprised with this colour mix.
To finish all cards I have add  rhinestone basic jewels, just a little bling never goes astray and is always pretty.
