Crazy Crafters & Pootlers Blog Hop - Occasions Catalogue Sneek Peak

Welcome to the Crazy Crafters / Pootles Blog Hop for December! This month we are excited to show off our "2016 Occasions / Saleabration Sneak Peeks". We hope you find great inspiration from the projects. 

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Nicole Spicer - or may have come from the person previous to me - Angelina Clark. Be sure to click on the next button further down to continue your journey on this blog hop.

This month we have very exciting news that we have the famous Pootles - Sam Donald and her lovely team playing along with us! All the way from the UK. We are absolutely thrilled that they said yes to playing along with the Crazy Crafters this month, as Sam is VERY talented and has a following all around the world. Thanks Sam and her team!

Here is the list of bloggers we have participating this month and what a list!

So here is my card. When I saw this suite at the Local Onstage Stampin' Up! event last month, I was so excited! I'm a bit of a pink girl and I love this beautiful intricate heart die.


Here's a brief run down of how I made by card.
  • My card base is 10.5cm x 15cm in Rose Red and I layered on that a piece of Blushing Bride 10.2cm x 14.7cm as I only wanted a small border due to the size of the heart die.
  • I then cut a piece of the new Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper stack to 9.9cm x 14.4cm. I flipped this piece over and ran it through my Big Shot with the new Bloomin' Heart Thinlits Die. This is on page 16 of the new catalogue. And even better, you can purchase the die with the stamp set and save 15%! Love it! I adhered this piece onto the Blushing Bride cardstock.  I love this effect so you get a sold colour against the detail of the heart.
  • I then ran that same die through using the new Blushing Bride glimmer paper. Its so beautiful! And in true Stampin' Up! style, the glimmer paper coordinates with the DSP! I used dimensionals to pop up the heart on the DSP.
  • My greeting is from the Stamp Set Bloomin' Love Stamp Set, which as I said is available in a bundle. The banner is cut out with the big shot also, with the Large Numbers Framelits Dies, but could easily be fussy cut. I popped this up with 2 dimensionals so it would pop up over the heart.
  • I finished off my card today by adhering some flowers (from the Bloomin' Heart Thinlit Die) in Rose Red cardstock and basic rhinestone jewels.
  • The inside of my card has a strip of the same DSP and a flower/jewel just so it matches!

I hope you've enjoyed my card today. I was really happy with how it turned out!

SIP Challenge 27 - Thanks - Love Blossoms DSP

Hi everyone, thanks for visiting my blog today! Gee it's been so long since I've blogged, but I just made this card yesterday, and saw that it fits with this challenge blog from SIP!

The card I've made today was created whilst playing around with my NEW stuff from the NEW 2016 Occasions Catalgoue, going live on the 4th February 2016! I can't wait! The DSP I've used is called Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack. Its part of a beautiful new suite, which includes a stamp set, thinlits die, ribbons, accessories kit and more! The stamp set I've used is also from the new catalogue, called You're So Lovely. Definately items for your must-have list!

I really like the simpleness of this card too.

Here is the challenge post from SIP. Check it out, even if you don't have a blog yourself, its a great place to get inspiration for your next project! Click on the image below!

Thanks for joining me, see yu next time! - Which is sooner than you think! Come back later on this afternoon/evening as the team I am apart of - The Crazy Crafters - is teaming up with Sam Hammond Donald from the UK for a very exciting Occasions Catalogue Sneak Peek blog hop. I hope you can come and see the awesome project we have!
