Global Design Project #064 ~ Fabulous Friend

I am so excited to be playing along with the Global Design Project this week.
It's my first time playing along with it.
I always say that I am going to and somehow it always slips my mind *naughty*
This week the challenge was to CASE (copy and selectively edit) one of Connie Collin's gorgeous cards that you can see up on The Global Design Project blog. it's an amazing card.

You know what though, upon searching for something to use on the card I realised I am in severe shortage of floral stamp sets. WHAT? 
How did that happen? 
I thought I loved all things girly and floral, but apparently I don't buy them!
So I conquered one of my creative challenges and decided to use *for the first time* a stamp set that had me stumped, that I didn't know how to use. 
Yes, you heard right. I have NEVER used the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set or punch bundle. 
Today I can finally say, it's been inked!


I also really loved the dapper denim and melon mambo combination and think that I will be using that again in the near future. 
I ended up CASE'ing the basic layout of Connie's card and the idea of a floral. 
Luckily I have some new floral sets on the way soon!


I have finished off the card with the gorgeous sentiment and banner from Bunch of Banners. That's also a new stamp set to my ever growing stash and I just love it. 
It comes with matching thinlets which I love, because who seriously enjoys fussy cutting?
Even those petals came with a punch!

I think the card looks finished with that gorgeous Fancy Frost specialty paper which I snapped up in the Online Extravaganza sale last week. Bargain!

I hope you get time to play along with the Global Design project too!

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop ~ with Cindy Schuster


I am so excited to be taking part in the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop today with Cindy Schuster.
I feel so privileged to take part in a blog hop with her, as her work is nothing short of amazing. She is currently on the Stampin' Up artisan team, and no surprise when you see her work.
You can check out her blog here. (or click below to see her part in the blog hop)


This is her gorgeous card that I CASE'd. (copied & selectively edited) As you can see I've done my won take on this as I've moved the panel down and used the gorgeous designer acetate as the layering piece. I've also added the linen thread instead of the ribbon.

I was excited to have a play with one of the brand new sets out of the Occasions Catalogue. This is one of the hostess only sets and includes a flower pot which you can layer with flowers to achieve different colours.
The top layer I have copper embossed, which was inspired by a sample I saw at Onstage.


I have used Mint Macaron and Watermelon wonder on the flowers and love how they work together. I then decided that the 2015-2017 in colours would work well together so I used Tip Top Taupe on the flower case and the Delightful Dijon on the sentiment. I love how it came together. 


I have also used some of the GORGEOUS new glassine paper from the Sending Love suite out of the Occasions Catalogue to layer between the black card stock and the Designer Acetate. I love the extra texture that it gives.


Finally here is the centre of the card which I have finished with Crumb Cake card stock and a gorgeous phrase stamped from the same stamp set in Tip Top Taupe.
I have also used Watercolour Wings to stamp one of those gorgeous butterflies in Delightful Dijon.

To see what everyone else has created on the blog hop, see the list below. 
There are some amazing projects!

Crazy Crafters Highlights ~ Enjoy Life

How can it be another Friday again?
The weeks seem to be going so fast and blending into another at the moment.
It's scary to believe that the year is almost over already.  

This week I am bringing you a card that was inspired by one I saw in the samples at Onstage. 
This is featuring one of the GORGEOUS sets from the upcoming Sale-a-Bration. You will be able to earn this lace set FREE from the 4th of January for every $90 you spend.
How awesome is that?
It was definitely one of the sets that grabbed out to me straight away.


I have heat embossed each strip of lace with white embossing powder, alternating the strips of lace I used each time. I have done this on Shimmery white card stock to add that extra bit of shimmer and sturdiness for the card. 
I had to work on each one at a time so I could see where the last strip of lace was positioned. It was a long process but worth it in the end.

I have used Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay and Mint Macaron to sponge over the top.
I love that combo together.


I have added in some of the metallic gold twine from the Baker's Twine trio from the Holiday Catalogue and I have also added a doily, some pearls, gold metallic thread and gold glimmer paper.

The sentiment comes from a gorgeous set from the brand new Occasions catalogue called SUITE SENTIMENTS. I loved this bold statement and definitely a good sentiment for a friend!


I have finished off the inside of the card with a sentiment from the brand new dragonfly set from the Occasions catalogue and a gorgeous stamped heart from the Sending Love suite from the brand new Occasions catalogue. I have stamped these in Pacific Point and Emerald Envy.
