Big Thanks Becky Blog Hop!

November 29, 2014 at 10:00 am 16 comments

Hi! Sorry to interrupt your Saturday 😉
Today a few of the girls are getting together to say a ‘Big Thanks’ to Becky for her time spent working as Creative Designer at docrafts. She’s still working.. doing magazine work and other commissions and you can still catch her work in Creativity mag, but in a freelance capacity.
She’s spent tons of time helping inspire people to use their crafty supplies (and buy new ones :-P)- so we thought ‘thanks’ was in order- and a simple hop around some of the girls connected with docrafts seemed like a good idea.
I’ve done a really super-simple card. I bought some metal adhesive tape the other day and thought I’d put it through its paces. It’s not a patch on my usual Add A Little Dazzle sheets, but wanted to give it a go anyway.
I started by embossing the tape, then removing the backing sheet (big mistake- once embossed just stick the backing down with the metal attached). Then although the texture was lovely- it looked, shall we say…a tad gaudy. So I reckoned that toning it down with some blue vellum could work. I didn’t want to lose the texture completely so cut out an aperture and then used the new Wooden Alphabet (in the cutest little wooden box) from Papermania to make the sentiment. To get it precisely lined up is time consuming, so simply cut out the individual letters instead. I added the tiniest extras and ta-daa..done.
Simple card in quick time too!
I hope that you’re encouraged Becky. Lots of people have really enjoyed your work. I was going to do more of a ‘becky-style’ card and decided that that was a bad idea as I simply can’t emulate her multi-layered-ever-so-slightly-vintage-style, so just went with CAS instead.
I’m the next to last blog in this fab list- and last (but by certainly no means least) up is my lovely friend Denise– who constantly stretches herself to try new things and is a wonder with creating all things 3D. Here’s the complete list in case you miss a link
Keren’re right here!

Here’s to you Becky; may your new way of working suit you to a tee and it will fun watching where your creative journey takes you!

See you soon,

Keren x

    Phew! and here I am back again! What a lovely blog hop! I love the card you made for Becky and I hope she knows that we ‘mere mortals’ (i.e. not designers) over at DoCrafts will also miss her designs and smiling face on ‘In the Studio’ hugely. All the very best Becky! Clare x

      No such things as ‘mere mortals’ Clare! – we’re all crafters, we all ‘design’ our own cards/projects and we all inspire each other!! xx

    Lovely card Keren, after seeing yours and Denise’s fab work with the metal tape I’m sorely tempted to have a go.


    • 10. kerenbaker  |  November 29, 2014 at 4:55 pm

      I would recommend the Add a Little Dazzle sheets- much thicker and with a gorgeous array of colours!!

    Very cool card! I love how you used the blue vellum and love the pop of red from the flower!

    Love how the circle aperture works with the texture and letters – another amazing card Keren! X

    What a completely FABULOUS idea Keren and a beautiful card! I must give this a try. Hazel x
