Blessed, Let's Get Hopping #18

Back in July 2016, I shared a set of Christmas projects *here* on the blog.  That blog post has, by far, been my best performing - most viewed - post to date! 

So when the Let's Get Hopping team were challenged to CASE themselves for this month's blog hop theme, I decided to draw inspiration from these popular projects to bring you this new design.
What does CASE mean? 

I like to think of it as Copy And Selectively Edit.
Copying isn't particularly creative work.  Being inspired by someone else's idea to produce something new and different is creative work.

I chose to CASE the cookie bag from *this* original post.  To start with, I searched through my stamp collection to find a sweet little floral that would suit being coloured with Stampin' Write Markers.  I settled on this "Beautiful Promenade" flower and went with tones of Highland Heather and Mossy Meadow.  I paired it with a romantically scripted "Southern Serenade" sentiment.
I'm featuring this design in a card buffet event later this month.  Are you local to the Bendigo area? Come and make this card with me!  Find details of my next event *here* on my facebook page.

Or, learn with me online!  Find this tutorial and more on my YouTube Channel.

  1. Beautiful project, Jenn. Well, both of them. No wonder the Xmas one has a such a great performance. it's lovely. You made a beautiful card. The DSP you used is, to me, somewhat intimidating, I never know what to do with too busy paper. You clearly do! And then you take an awesome photo of it too! Of course. Thank you for inspiring me.

  2. Some of my favorite DSP! Love your project!

  3. Wow, you have created another Beautiful card, the dsp is so pretty as the background, but the stamped images have been softened to create a stunning card, Well Done Jenn!!!

  4. I love how the boldness of that DSP doesn't take away from the focal point, just gorgeous! :)

  5. Just beautiful Jennifer. My all time favourite dsp.

  6. Oooh I remember that Christmas bag. I love th his card Jenn. Very brave using such bold DSP as a background but you completely nailed it
