Happy Little Stampers October CASE the Designer – Birgit

Hi! Thanks for spending some of your valuable time visiting me here. 🙂

I’m happy to be with you today for Happy Little Stampers’ CASE the Designer Challenge for October.

I’ve been CASEing my sweet friend Birgit of “Crafting While I Wait.”

Here’s Birgit’s lovely card:

Soooo pretty! I was inspired by Birgit’s layout, elements and the overall sweet design.

Here’s the card I came up with, using Happy Little Stampers Doodle Flowers and Thinking of You stamp sets.

How I made this card:

  1. First, I created my background panel with Brushos Crystals (spritzing with some water to activate). img_1890_edited-12. Then I stamped the entire panel with the large block script sentiment from Thinking of You. img_1865_edited-1    

3. I randomly added some flowers and leaves from Doodled Flowers.

4. I die cut the panel.

5. Then I added white gel pen to the flower centers. img_1867_edited-1

6. Then I stamped the largest flower from Doodled Flowers in embossing ink onto a white panel of cardstock from my stash. (I had previously sponged some overlapping red, orange and yellow circles onto the white paper and liked the combination of colors.)

7. I heat embossed the flower with red and yellow embossing powder.

img_1864_edited-28. Then I colored in the flower with alcohol markers.

9. I die cut the panel and reassembled the die cuts, turning some of them 180° to produce a balanced color pattern. img_1890_edited-210. I added foam tape to every other die cut and adhered the rest with adhesive.

img_1865_edited-1 11. Next I adhered the panel to the base.

12. I heat embossed the sentiment in white onto black card stock (fussy cut) and added the sentiment. (Doodled Flowers)img_1891_edited-1

I loved CASEing Birgit’s card and I hope that you’ve been inspired to play along.
