Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Special Guest Angela Meritz-Reid

Thank you for joining us for the Crazy Crafters blog hop with special Guest Angela Meritz-Reid! We are so happy to have Angela hopping along with my Crazy Crafters team. We will be CASE-ing Angela's work (Copy and Selectively Edit). This means that we will use Angelas work as our inspiration, but still make the project our own. It is such a great way to get inspiration without feeling like you have to copy it exactly.

 Here is a photo of Angela and I at OnStage in Brisbane, 2016.

Here is the card of Angelas that I am casing today -

The main elements of this card that I am inspired by are the diagonal axis and the use of framelits. Here is the card that I made - 

I have been meaning to use this bundle since the catalogue first came out. I have seen so many projects using this bundle that are JUST BEAUTIFUL and I have been inspired by so many. But, during our recent trip to Singapore, we visited the amazing Gardens By the Bay in the Flower Hall and were just mesmerised by the beauty and simplicity of the Orchid.

I white embossed onto Very Vanilla. I then used the Aqua Painters and very lightly coloured the Orchids with Sahara Sand to create some depth. I then cut out the two orchids using the coordinating framelits. I cut out a set of the framelit shapes using Sahara sand and mounted to create some depth. I stamped the middle part of the orchid using Sahara and cut out using the framelits.

I then cut out a layer of Sahara and stamped some leaves and branches using VersaMark. I then mounted the Orchids onto this card and mounted onto a Very Vanilla card base. I used the 'Thinking of You' sentiment from this bundle and stamped in Sahara Sand onto Vanilla and mounted onto the card.
