Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Dawn Olchefske - Touches of Texture

Hi Crafters!

Some exciting news for you today! It's Blog Hop time!! Today we are CASE-ing (Copy & Selectively Edit) Dawn Olchefske, who is also joining us on this hop! 

I hope you find great inspiration from all the projects in this hop. You may 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 Dawn's work.

Here is the card I have chosen to case from Dawn:

And here is my take on Dawn's lovely card:

I have taken inspiration from the Touches of Texture stamp set that I thought was similar to the stamp set that Dawn has used & I have also copied Dawn's layout of the card.

To achieve the white flowers, I have used Versamark, Clear Heat Embossing Powder & the Heat Tool first & then I have inked the images using Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, So Saffron, Pink Pirouette & Calypso Coral. Next, I have sponged over the top of all the images in Pink Pirouette. I have used the new Ruched Ribbon in Flirty Flamingo & also layered a piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock behind, which I have propped up on Dimensionals. I love the new Flirty Flamingo colour & I love the new Ruched Ribbon, it is so soft & lovely! I also added Basic Rhinestones to the centers of the flowers.

The sentiment comes from the Limited Edition Thoughtful Branches stamp set. This stamp set is only available during August, so hop on my Online Shop & order yours before they run out!

I have also used Pink Pirouette & Flirty Flamingo inks for the inside of the card. Images are from the Touches of Texture stamp set & the sentiment is from the Thougthtful Branches stamp set.

Hop, skip & jump along here to travel through all the blogs casing Dawn from the Crazy Crafters. Enjoy your travels!
