Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Wendy Cranford


Hi all!

Today I'm taking part in the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest Wendy Cranford.

Wendy is based in the USA and is an inspirational Demonstrator and crafter.  I'm so excited to be taking part in this blog hop with her!

Wendy's cards that I chose to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) for this blog hop are these.  I love how she chose to highlight only some of the images and leaving the rest black and white.


For my card, I decided to use the Piece of Cake Photopolymer Bundle.  To start off, I stamped one of the cake images from the stamp set onto some Whisper White cardstock and then coloured it in using Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody and Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends.


Once I was happy with the colouring, I used the punch to cut out the image, as well as a number of unstamped images.  I then positioned these on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and once I was happy with the placement, adhered them into place.   I then attached the card front to a Whisper White card base.

The punch made this card really quick and easy to make and I love how it turned out.  I'd love to hear what you think so please feel free leave a comment.

That's all from me today.  There's lots of amazing creations to see as part of this blog hop though so don't forget to continue on.  The full lineup is below.

Thanks for stopping by!

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Meg Loven


Hi all!

Today I'm excited to be taking part in the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest Meg Loven.

Meg is super talented and I'm really excited about being able to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) one of her creations for the blog hop.

The card I chose to CASE was this one as I was inspired by the layout and the use of purple.


For my card, I layered a piece of Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper onto a strip of Blackberry Bliss cardstock and attached it to a Whisper White base.



I then used the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies to die cut a scalloped piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock and the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies to die cut an oval out of Whisper White cardstock.

I chose to use the Love What You Do stamp set for my sentiment and flower and I stamped them using Blackberry Bliss and Mint Macaron.

I love how this card turned out and how simple it was to make using the Designer Series Paper.  I hope you like it as much as I do!

That's all from me today.  Don't forget to continue on with the blog hop to see the amazing creations everyone has come up with.  The full lineup us below.

Thanks for stopping by!

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Dena Rekow


Hi all!

Today I'm taking part in the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest Dena Rekow.

I love Dena's creations so I'm very excited to be taking part in a blog hop with her!

Dena's card that I chose to  CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) are these. The layout really appealed to me and I like the simplicity of the design.


For my card, I started with a Melon Mambo base and added a Powder Pink layer on top.  I then dry embossed a piece of vellum using the Sparkle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.


I then die cut a scalloped circle and the word wish from a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies and the Broadway Lights Framelits Dies.  I also die cut  another circle using Whisper White cardstock and the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

I chose to use sentiments from the Broadway Birthday Stamp set and I stamped one in Melon Mambo and the other I heat embossed in white.

The little banner I created using Melon Mambo cardstock and the Classic Label Punch.

That's it from me.  Thanks for stopping by.  I love hearing from you all so please feel free to leave a comment.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the blog hop too.  The full lineup is below.

Petal Promenade Thank You Card

Hi all,

It's been a while since I posted one of my card creations so I thought I'd share a thank you card I made for my customers a few months back.



This is a really simple card to make and uses the beautiful Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper.  This Designer Series Paper includes a range of gorgeous floral images as well as some frame images

At first glance I wasn't too sure how I was going to use these frame images, but I quickly realised that they would be perfect for making quick and simple cards as all you need to do is cut out the frame, and then stamp a sentiment in the open space!  So that's how these thank you cards came about.


To make this card, I used a Whisper White card base and layered it with Fresh Fig cardstock and one of the frame images.  The sentiment is from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set and I stamped it in Fresh Fig.  To finish the card off I added some Whisper White 1/8" Sheer Ribbon.

This card was really easy to make and is perfect for when you need to make quite a few cards quickly.

I hope my customers liked their card as much as I enjoyed making it!

Each of my customers receives a handmade card and a gift from me at the end of the month when they shop with me.  They also go into my monthly customer draw where I give away a voucher to use in my online Stampin' Up!® store.

If you'd like to place an order through my online store, you can click here or on the 'Shop Online' button.  Use this months hostess code (MP4YAJET) at the bottom of your Shopping Cart to receive a handmade card and free gift from me.

As always, thanks for stopping by!  I hope I've inspired you :)
