Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest - Georgia Giguere

Welcome and thank you for joining me in a special Crazy Crafters team blog hop.

We are hopping with a special guest - US Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Georgia Giguere.

Georgia has been a demonstrator for 15 years and was Number 63 of the Global Top 100 Stampin' Up! demonstrators last year. What an achievement!

The theme of this blog hop was to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) one of Georgia's cards.

Here is the card of Georgia's that I chose to CASE:

To checkout Georgia's card in more detail click here.

Here are my versions:

For my cards I stamped the turtle image (from the From Land to Sea stamp set) onto some Vellum Cardstock with StazOn (instead of a window sheet) and then coloured them using Classic Ink Pads & Blender Pens.

I coloured one on the same side as the StazOn (front) and the other on the back of the vellum, just to see what different this would make. The only difference seems to be the one coloured on the back is a little lighter/softer than the other.

My backgrounds are created by using some sheets of designer series paper from the By The Shore pack. Such a quick and easy way for a lovely card background.

The sentiments come from the Rose Wonder & Guy Greetings stamp sets and were stamped using Memento.

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my creations.

If you enjoyed my cards, it would make my day if you left me a comment.
