Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special Guest Allison Okamitsu

We are thrilled that we have another blog hop to share with you today as a team! The amazing Allison Okamitsu is our guest today. A top Canadian Demonstrator who has on numerous occasions been part of the Stampin' Up!® Artisan design team. Such a Superstar this woman!

Here is the card of Allison's that I am casing today - 

Here is the card that I came up with - 

You may be thinking - how did Kylie get that from Allison's card?? But I love the way Allison created the background just by stamping. This is exactly what I did to create my background. Then it is just a simple addition of the flower and sentiment. 

I decided to step it up and even added some ribbon and washi. I took this element from Allisons strip of Gimmer cardstock that looks just like washi.

Here are the colours that I used in the card please pin for inspiration later.

I love that you can get inspiration from another persons card and truly make it completely your own. There might be elements that help you to get started - maybe the colour or the layout. When you start to discover how to Copy and Selectively edit - you will never run out of craft mojo every again! There is always inspiration.

I am loving this new stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue if you would like to purchase that you can see my supplies list below.
