Crazy Crafters Blog Hop | Special Guest Meg Loven

Hello, and welcome to the last Crazy Crafters Blog hop for 2018, our special guest today is Meg Loven from the United States. Meg has been a demonstrator since 2002, and was ranked #10 in the US for the 2017 Stampin' Up! year, such an honour to be hopping with her today.

I visited Megs Pinterest board, so many lovely projects to choose from, and eventually decided to CASE the below card  - the shortened front panel with decorative edge caught my attention, I like doing something that is a little different to the norm!

Here's what I created featuring the You're Inspiring stamp set from page 31 of the Occasions catalogue.

The stamped image is stunning, the detail and fine lines is just amazing, I was like "wow" that is gorgeous when I stamped it! I stamped the larger flower image multiple times, using post it notes to mask so I didn't overlap images of the foliage. Them it was to the trusty Stampin' Blends for colouring, I love colouring, and blending colours to create shadows and shades is so much fun - I cant get enough of them!

Rather than adding ribbon to the inner panel of the card, I chose to emboss a pattern with one of the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders (Page 23 of the Occasions Catalogue), I'm really happy with this effect, and it's unlike a normal card.

  1. Very very pretty Sue. You are as the card say's, inspiring x

  2. Your card is so gorgeous! Your colouring is superb and I love the attention to details.

  3. Wow Sue. Such a pretty card and so beautifully coloured. I nearly chose the same card to CASE, I really love your take :)

  4. Beeeeeautiful, Sue! This is just gorgeous.

  5. Love your daffodils, Sue!! I haven't used that folder yet, but it looks like I'm going to need to pull it out and put it to good use :)

  6. Can you share how you made the Daffodil Delight scalloped trim along the side? It adds that pretty pop of color against the green and I’m curious how you did that.

  7. I am curious too about the trim along the side. Looked at all the SU dies and could not find one that did this. Is it an old die cut?

    1. I used the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch to create the long scalloped edge :)


Thanks for taking the time to write a comment - you have made my day!
