Guest Designer for Crazy Crafters Blog Hop
I am humbled today to be chosen as this month’s Guest Designer for Crazy Crafter’s Blog Hop. Creating cards to share with those who we love is a worldwide connection that many people share. I have made many friends through cardmaking and cherish each and every one. For this Blog Hop, the participating Team members will choose to recreate one of my previous card projects with their own products and customized charm. I also have chosen a card to recreate! I’m CASE’ing myself for today’s project and have chosen one of my all time favorite cards.

CASE’ing a card
What is CASE’ing? To Copy And Selectively Edit a card design by another crafter. Basically, to use another’s work as inspiration for your own new project. The crafters that are participating in this Hop will choose one of my cards from my Gallery here at the Blog and use the design with current product. I created the “Thoughtful Branches night sky” card some time back. This stamp set has since retired and no longer available to purchase. For my project today, I’m staying with the night sky theme, trees and snowbanks but creating it all in a different technique.
Icy trees with Shimmer Paint
To create this serene scene, I first started out with a piece of Watercolor paper and a Sponge Brayer. Adding color from 3 stamp pads (Balmy Blue, Blueberry Bushel and Gorgeous Grape) the color is deeply concentrated at the top. Knowing there would be a snow bank in the foreground and that light is reflected off of snow, I’ve kept it light and ethereal toward the bottom horizon line. Don’t miss out on the video tutorial for exactly how to create this ink blending technique.
Trees will often appear very dark when backlit and this night sky is illuminated with stars and snow. Giving the look of ice on the branches was easy by adding a little Shimmer Paint to the black die cuts. This cardmaking project was easy to complete with the supplies I had on hand- with the addition of the Shimmer Paint. Loving this stuff!
