Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest Cathy Caines

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

We are hopping with a special guest - 2018 Artisan Design Team Member Cathy Caines.

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

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

Here is my version:

I love the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper! So gorgeous and you get stunning looking cards and all you have to do is colour it in. Can it be any easier.

To colour the flowers I have used my new set of Stampin' Blends :)

The colours used are: Bermuda Bay (Light), Calypso Coral (Light & Dark), Cherry Cobbler (Light & Dark), Daffodil Delight (Light & Dark), Old Olive (Light & Dark), Pink Pirouette (Light & Dark) and Rich Razzleberry (Light & Dark).

My sentiment comes from the Petal Palette stamp set and is heat embossed.
What! ... heat embossed you say! But it's Bermuda Bay. How?

Well you can heat emboss any colour you like, by inking your stamp with Versamark first, then inking up your favourite colour. Just use clear embossing powder to finish off.

Just because I wanted to add a little sparkle, there is a little silver thread under the stitched shape sentiment circle.

Thanks so much for your support and for visiting me today :)
