Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop for March. This month we are excited to be CASE-ing Allison Okamitsu, who is also joining us on this hop! How exciting! Allison has so many BEAUTIFUL cards, it was so hard to just choose one to case!
I hope you find great inspiration from all the projects in this hop. You may just be starting the hop here at my blog (Jessie Holton) or you may have come from the previous person on the list. Be sure to click on the next person in the list to continue your blog hop adventure casing Allison's work.
I have based my card on Allison's Pedal Pusher card as I absolutely love this stamp set but I haven't yet had the chance to use it. I bought this set as it reminded me of mine & my husband's honeymoon in Europe, especially in Amsterdam where we hired bikes & rode all over the city, but the stamp set really reminds me of France, too with the bread & wine in the basket. Plus, my hubby loves bikes & we watched the Tour de France when we were in Aple du'Huez, Nice & Paris. And it is our 3 year anniversary on 23 March. So all in all, I thought this was the perfect card for me to case.
Here is the card I cased by Allison:
This is the card I have made:
I have started off with a square 6x6" Lost Lagoon cardstock, layered with Silver Foil & Whisper White cardstock. I have stamped directly onto the white cardstock, mostly with Archival Black. I have used Dimensionals to attach the white layer to the silver layer.
The bike, sentiment & clouds are from the Pedal Pusher stamp set. I have coloured in the bike frame with my Lost Lagoon Stampin' Marker. I have used a Blender Pen for the rest. The colours I have used are So Saffron for the birds & wine bottle label, Smoky Slate for the other bike frame bits, Crumb Cake for the bread, Pear Pizazz for the grapes, Soft Suede for the basket, Cherry Cobbler for the wine. I have used Soft Sky for the clouds.
The balloon is from the Balloon Celebration stamp set. I have stamped the balloon with Cherry Cobbler ink to match the wine. The bike's shadow has been created with on of the stamps from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, stamped in Smoky Slate. The baker's twine & candy dots are Mint Macaron.
I thought there was a "wine" stamp in the Balloon Celebration set, which is why I coloured the front with Cherry Cobbler, but never mind, we'll drink Champagne instead. I'll get drunk quicker on the bubbles :P
I have used Archival Black & Soft Sky to stamp the inside. The Happy Anniversary sentiment is from the Number of Years stamp set.
