Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Dena Rekow!

Hi Crafty Peeps!

Today we are excited to be CASE-ing (Copy & Selectively Edit) Dena Rekow, who is also joining us on this hop! How exciting!

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 Dena's work.

Here is the card I have chosen to case from Dena! Can you believe this is the first Hostess stamp set I bought back in September when I joined & this is the first time I'm using it & now it's retiring at the end of the month!! I am slapping myself for not getting into it any sooner!! Bad Jessie!!

And here is my version of Dena's beautiful card. I've decided to keep to just three colours, Flirty Flamingo, Copper & Mint Macaron - I think this colour combo is really pretty & I'm super happy with how this card has turned out!

I have used my trusty Whisper White for the base, butterfly & sentiment. I've embossed the Mint Macaron layer with the Decorative Dots emboss folder (retiring) on my Big Shot & then stamped on it with Mint Macaron ink, using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set for the splashes in the background. I've also used the Big Shot with the Precision Plate to cut out the butterfly with the Bold Butterfly framelits.

The Copper Dots Washi Tape is from the Affectionately Yours set from the new catalog. I have heat embossed the butterfly from the Floral Wings (retiring) hostess stamp set with Copper heat emboss powder & set with the Versamark ink & heat tool. The Copper heat emboss powder is also from the new catalog.

I have used Flirty Flamingo ink for the flowers & sentiment - this is one of the five new 2016-2018 In Colours. I have used Mint Macaron for the leaves. The sentiment has been cut out with the Washi Label Punch (retiring). The white metallic thread is from my stash. I have used Dimensionals to prop up the butterfly & sentiment.
