Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Alison Solven

Hello everyone 😊

I am hopping today with the Crazy Crafters Team and our special guest Alison Solven

We will all be using Alison as our inspiration today.
While perusing through Alison's wide range of works I noticed so many gorgeous floral cards. You can visit her blog HERE to check out some of her lovely designs.

I adore flowers of all types, so that is what I was inspired by.

For my project today I used a bundle called Floral Frames.

Here is my project.

Sending LOVE

I wanted to create a Shabby style of card that has a clean feel with a bit of white space.

The background was created by distressing a piece of the Tropical Escape DSP and gluing straight onto the Whisper White card base.

Focal Area

  • I stamped the coloured framed image onto Shimmery White in Sahara Sand. 
  • I then coloured it with Inks and an Aqua Painter. 
  • Old Olive
  • Garden Green 
  • Petal Pink 
  • Merry Merlot 
  • Mossy Meadow 
  •  I defined the larger of the leaves using a Stampin' Write marker in old Olive.
  • I Fussy Cut the frame and layered it using dimensionals onto 3 Die cut Floral Frames. 
  • The 3 frames were die cut from Old Olive and Thick Whisper White card stock. 
  • I cut the centres out using the layering circles framelits. 
  • I added a length of Copper trim that has been cut open and spread out flat behind my layered frames to add a little texture.
