Crazy Crafters Blog Hop | Special Guest Nadine Köller


Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest Nadine Köller. Nadine's blog had me mesmerised... clean and white themed cards really appeal to me - yet I don't make them often, funny that!  After a cup of coffee whilst viewing Nadine's gorgeous projects I decided on the below card to CASE - Copy and Selectively Edit


I love the background effect, and especially the colours,  and how there is a hint of the stamped design, however the randomness (is that a word?) of the technique freaks me out as you can't really control how your pattern will look - anyway, I've stepped out of my "control" zone and given this technique a go


I chose Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum for my colours, I was a little bit heavy handed with amount of ink I applied to the watercolour paper with the cling wrap, and I was freaked out! (hahaha), but I walked away and left it to dry - I was pleasantly surprised when I returned, the colours weren't as intense as when I first applied the ink, they were more subtle, I was a little calmer now.

Next I stamped the large daisy from the new Daisy Delight stamp set (available 1st June) with Versamark and heat embossed with White Stampin' Emboss powder, then I sentiment. Instead for "splattering" the card, I used the tiny daisy heads stamp and applied my little dots, then stamped single mini daisies randomly. I mounted on Blushing Bride and Sweet Sugar Plum, then on the Whisper White card base.

I enjoyed the card so much I got adventurous and made a second!


This card highlights 3 of the gorgeous 2017-2019 In Colours - Powder Pink, Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist (my daughters favourite), I wasn't sure at first as the colours were so bright, but when I added the strips of Lemon Lime and Berry Burst cardstock, WOW I was so happy with the pop of the colour combo.

  2. WOW Sue...I adore them both BUT The 3 incolour card is my fave :) I love bright and cheery and this ticks both boxes. (Plus Green is my fave colour and I am addicted to LLT)
    The beauty of water colour is it fades as it dries ... what you think you ahev been heavy handed with will more than likely be quite alot lighter whenh dry

All Star Tutorial Blog Hop

Not only is today the monthly All Star Blog Hop, but it is also the launch day of Sale-A-Bration and the Mini Catalogue, wow what a busy day!

Do you ever get caught up in the detail, and before you know it hours have past and all you really wanted was a quick card? That is me all to often,but today card came together quickly and it's perfect for a masculine birthday event too!

Who would have thought with just a strip of Birthday Bonanza Designer Series paper, a sentiment from Bonanza Buddies (from the new Mini Catalogue) you could have a gorgeously masculine card in a jiffy!

I raised card front layer using some corrugated embossed cardstock for a little mow impact, the DSP is adhered directly to the card base, here's the side view


Lastly add some sequins to celebrate the happy day = card is complete!


Yes, it's a simple design, but less can be more on some days, hahaha (I don't have many of those days when it comes to card making).

Say it with Stars... Happy Birthday

I've had a crafty orientated day today in between weekend household chores, after delivering catalogues, and in between multiple loads of washing & cooking I played with part of my So Many Stars bundle..... being the Stitched Stars dies (23 in the set, spoiilt for choice, woot!)

These dies were perfect for the Global Design Project theme this week:


I started by stamping my birthday sentiment, then placed 3 of the star dies (the 3 smaller detailed stars) in position and ran through the Big Shot, then re-positioned and worked by way along the edge of the card, cutting 7 in total - perfect for a rainbow of colour.


I used 2 of the stitched stars to cut the colours, then placed them behind the card front and popped up on dimensionals, lastly mounting the card front on a Thick Whisper White card base, and there you have it, a fun Children's birthday card!

Delicate Lace with Magnolia Lane

Well hello Saturday! What a long week that was, so happy to creative today, it feels like it's been ages! To get me in the mood I went to my favourite challenge blogs for some inspiration, and I chose this sketch:


For today's creation I've mixed some old with the new - Delicate Lace edge dies with Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper. I decided to turn the sketch on the side, it seemed to show of the lovely flowers better.



This DSP is just gorgeous, a mix of floral and stripes all using a beautiful colour palette - yes, it did have me with pink, but honestly if you replaced pink with a purple or yellow it would still be an amazing DSP.




Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project. Stay tuned for more inspiration and tips this month. If you live in Australia and don't already have a demonstrator I'd love love to be yours.
