Kylie Betucci Crazy Crafters Highlight

Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Highlights this week.  Holy dooley the weeks are flying by now! Not long until the kids are out from school for a nice big break.  
This week I wanted to share my "Happy" cards.  If anyone is like me they hate waste.  So, I originally was only making one card, but that soon snowballed into three lol. 
I love using my Aqua Painters and Blender Pens and wanted to have a try at using the Whisper White Craft Ink.  So I got a little piece of scrap Basic Black.  I stamped using versamark and embossed with White Embossing Powder.  Then grabbed my pen and started playing.  Well... I liked it that much I couldn't throw away the scrap and decided to make a card out of it.  Because happiness is great and I love these thinlits I thought this would be a perfect pairing for the scrap.  What I did was use the 'negative' on this card and that of course is why I then needed to make another card, because I didn't want to waste the cut out (if I put it aside for a rainy day it just ends up in a pile from when I used to do that and gets forgotten) so I made the next card....

 This card was done the exact same way.  Using the Hello You Thinlits for the sentiment and the Birthday Blooms Stamp Set.  I love how both of these cards turned out.  Now, its not easy to see by the photograph but I used the thinlit to cut out the happy from the black cardstock so I could lay the white in it whic means, yeah you guessed it I needed to make another card.....

This card was super simple I simply cut out the backing with the Detailed Floral Thinlits in the Glimmer Paper and Popped the sentiment up on dimensionals that I had cut down so it couldn't be seen behind the lettering


So that's my little bundle of 'Happiness' for the day .  I hope you have enjoyed my projects and I would love it if you voted for me, you can do that by CLICKING HERE.  
I also love hearing back from you so please leave me a comment if you have the time :-)

Until next time Stay Well and Happy Crafting. Tamie xx

Brian King Case

I have just found an unpublished blog hop post from quite some time ago that had not been completed of scheduled.  So I thought I would pop it up now for everyone to see.  I loved Brians use of lilttle tags so I cased that part of his project, also he made many of these adorable little boxes, so I decided to make many of the little sets below for everyone at onstage on the Gold Coast in April.
Cheer All Year, Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper, Bow Builder punch, Stampin' Up!, Brian King, Christmas gift-giving ideas

So I hope you like what I have done here. The bags were made out of our packing paper using the gift bag board


Until Next time stay well and happy crafting. Tamie xx

You Got This #CTC010 #GDP062

Hi there, I have made a card today, it started out as an entry for Case This Card over at Jessie Holtons Blog.  The CASE is a card of KO Creations who won the #CTC009 last week.  
 So this time it is #CTC010 and I've used the pink flower and the background behind the flower as inspiration.
Then it evolved to Louise Sharp and her love of pink (she is such a beautiful lady, I caught up with her at Onstage again and she is just the cutest, she didn't recognize me and it made me giggle).  I wish there was a recording of her talk at convention years ago, I loved listening to her speak, she is so inspirational!  Then... because I was thinking about Louise I thought of the Global Design Project, because she is one of the designers and I saw that it would fit in perfectly with my card.  So this card is being entered in the #GDP062 also.
This is the card I came up with.  The flowers base colour is  Melon Mambo, It has been highlighted with Rose Red.  The Cardstock and Enamel Shapes are also Rose Red (& Basic Black).
The flower and the silver backing (silver heat embossed) stamp is from the You Got This Stamp set.  The sentiment and the little backing to the sentiment are from a new set to be released January 4 2017 called Sealed with Love.  The sentiment was stamped with Whisper White Craft Ink and Embossed with Melon Mambo Embossing Powder.  The edge of the sentiment I ran across the Versamark Pad and embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.

All supplies used in this card are available for purchase in my online store, the link for it is at the top of the page.
Thanks for taking the time to look at my post, I'd love if you left me a comment.  Until next time stay well and happy crafting. Tamie

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Bibi Cameron

This is what I decided to CASE.

I chose this because my Daughter came to me and said she wanted to give her teacher a white chocolate as a farewell gift as she was leaving to have her baby.  I didn't get to take photos because as per kids right she gave me notice, and I ended up making it outside the school while they were getting started for the day.  That meant two things. 1. I had to get the school to take a picture of them together for me so Cathy had something to remember her by and so you all could see it (I haven't got permission to post the photo so if you see this Sensai let me know and I'll remove it) and 2. I had to go out and buy another box of chocolate so I could recreate it (it's called taking one for the team I believe lol). This one was made with Soft Suede and Bermuda Bay.


The remake is a little different as I'm in a more SIMPLE mood today hahaha.  The colours used this time were Soft Suede and Sugarplum.  Love that ribbon! A little wink of stella on the sentiment (You've Got This stamp set) and Hardwood stamp in Soft Suede and sponged in the same colour and that is this done. super simple but lovely at the same time. I apologize for the photos it's a lovely rainy day here so there was no chance of good pics.

I love that I managed to get the sparkle in the sentiment to show up (there's a first for everything)



Well until next time stay well and Happy Crafting Tamie

Crazy Craftrers Blog Hop Featuring Amy Koenders

Welcome to another CC Blog Hop.  To see all of the wonderful creations, see the full line up with their links below.  If you have the time please leave us a comment as it makes our day to see others loving what we do.  This time we are CASEing the super talented Amy Koenders.  So for the Hop the card I chose was this one below. It's very simple and sweet and I am dying to use some of the NEW 2017 Occasions Catalogue DSP and I thought this was the perfect project to highlight it...


Here is what I made.  I used Whisper White and Real Red Cardstock.  Real Red Ink and a little Whisper White Bakers Twine.  The Stamp Set is BRAND NEW, I got it from Onstage as a gift from the table at the end of the day as my Birthday was next YAY!!! Love Love Love It!!  
 Now, my CASE of this card evolved.  I had intended it to be upright the same as Amys but decided I liked the layout I was doing as a landscape instead of a portrait.  I used the paper from the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack. 

The hearts and arrow were cut with the Love Notes Framelits Dies.   The little love heart and swirl pattern across the card was made using the aforementioned stamp set, it is called Sealed with Love, I stamped it three times across the page and then fussy cut around it and used it like a filigree/ lace edge.                                                                                                                   

The sentiment, OMG the sentiment! What a nightmare. I direct stamped versamark onto the paper and White Embossed it, and hated it.  So I decided, well I'll just sponge it with a little Real Red Ink to make it POP, bleh it looked awful!  So then I continued to fiddle (the better half suggested I shelf it as I was getting annoyed lol, however I'm a bit stubborn and wouldn't give up 'till I had made it right.  
 I ended up using the same sentiment that I used in the first place but this time went the other way around and stamped the little swirls in each corner, I fussy cut around it.  Then I thought about making it a little more interesting.  So I used some more of the little stamps and fussy cut around them.  Lucky for you they come with framelits, and even better they come as a bundle with the stamp set.  These are available January 4th 2017 to the public.  If you would like to get them sooner contact me and I'll be happy to help you get it in December.

Well until next time Stay Well and Happy Crafting.  Tamie xx
