Crazy Crafters and Pootlers Blog Hop


Welcome to the Crazy Crafters and Pootles Blog Hop for December.  This month we are excited to show you some fabulous projects using products from the new Occasions Catalogue - Handmade from the Heart and Sale-A-Brations. 

This month we are delighted to have the famous Pootles - Sam Hammond Donald and her lovely team playing along with us! All the way from the UK. Sam is VERY talented and has a following all around the world. Thanks to Sam and her team! 

I decided to create this simple card using the Party with Cake Stamp Set and Party Pop Up Thinlits, which are amazing - you're going to love them! 

Our theme for this hop was "one", one stamp set, one die, one ink, one embellishment etc - what a challenge! It does highlight how easy it is to make beautiful cards from a small amount of product.  I opted for black cardstock, with the sentiment stamped in versa mark and embossed in white.  The two slices of cake are embossed on black card, fussy cut and stuck on with dimensionals.

Now for the inside (my favourite part of the card).   I used the Party Pop Up Thinlit to create the Happy Birthday on 5"x 5" very vanilla cardstock (I found this size works best for the pop up).  As with the cover I used black cardstock and white embossing for the sentiment.

To add a bit of 'sparkle' I did use the clear wink of stella glitter brush over the words  'Happy Birthday' and on the candle flames - shhhh!

Love Blossoms

I'm in love with the bloomin' heart thinlits dies and coordinating bloomin' love stamp set from the new Occasions Catalogue!

The die cut heart looks amazing in blushing bride glimmer paper, paired with whisper white, blushing bride and rose red card stock.

The thinlits set includes two small flowers that coordinate with the stamp set and the love blossoms designer series paper. I used them here to embellish the flowers on the large heart along with blushing bride sequins from the coordinating embellishment kit.

Not to forget the matching envelope, custom made with the envelope punch board and stamped with the heart from the bloomin' love stamp set.

Hooray Engagement Card - Watercolor Words

Two of my dearest friends recently got engaged and here is the card I made for them... I just love the watercolour words stamp set.  The texture of the images is really beautiful.


To get the two tone heart, I stamped the first dark red heart and then the second heart without re-inking. I really like this nice, clean and simple design.

Crazy Crafters November 2015 Blog Hop



Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog for November. This month we are excited to show off "Most used stamp sets".  We hope you find great inspiration from the projects...

 My favourite and most used stamp set is work of art (wood mount).  I use this set time and time again because it is so versatile. You can create a card for almost any occasion and for both genders.


To create this particular card (inspired by the ideas catalogue) I embossed the 'you' first, then added some colour using lost lagoon and mint macaron ink.  I stamped off some of the stamps to create some variation in colour.


Once I finished stamping I used a baby wipe to clean any ink from the embossing and also to create a watercolour effect.


I then used a watercolour pen to add a few drops of water to create a 'splash'  and some crystal effects to add 'dew drops' and adhere the stars and thread.
