Bloggers Challenge 107


Today’s Bloggers Challenge was to case a card from another Bloggers Challenge player!  What fun!  Of course, the talent is amazing, so it was hard just to choose one person to case!  But, my card was cased from one I found on Tiffany Bauer’s Blog.  I love all the layers that she uses on her cards!


On this card she used a retired set called Always in my Thoughts and Kiwi Kiss colors that retired last month.  I decided to update her card with a new set from the NEW catalog called Herb Expressions, along with one of the new In Colors, Rich Razzleberry!

I started by using my Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry markers to ink up the Thyme herb in the Herb Expressions stamp set and stamped it on Whisper White.  I layered that on Orchid Opulence and then on Rich Razzleberry.  That element was mounted on more layers of Whisper White, Orchid Opulence and Rich Razzleberry and the 1/4 circles (Crop A Dile) were added in the upper right corner, and the 1" and 1 1/4 punched circles with Thyme stamped as an accent were popped up with dimensionals on the front.  I wrapped the Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Ribbon around that entire unit and secured it with adhesive, then used one of the Kraft Corduroy Buttons to hold both the ends together (wish we had these in the new In Colors!).  The base card is Old Olive with a layer of Rich Razzleberry, then the dotted pattern from Cottage Wall Designer Paper.  I love this color combination!

This was such a fun challenge!  I hope you enjoy your weekend!  Make sure to check out the rest of the ideas by clicking on the Bloggers Challenge badge on the right!
