Heartland with Burlap Background

I have been working with this beautiful country theme stamp set "Heartland" and it has been very popular in my country town where I sell my cards. This time I have sponged my background on Shimmery White cardstock, stamped my image in the bottom right hand corner. Then I created a mask and covered the image and using the new "Burlap" stamp set, stamped over the entire front of the card to create the beautiful background. It sparkles being on Shimmery White cardstock and adds texture using the background stamp with masking the small image. Finally using the Layering Ovals and the Stitched Shaped Framelits I have added my sentiment and adhered it to my card with dimensionals.

You've Got This


Welcome back crafter's to our last Blog Hop for this month, we are very lucky to have the very talented Susan Wong hopping with us today. You can visit Susan's Blog to be inspired with her creations HERE!!!! The theme for our blog hop is to CASE one of Susan's cards/projects. 
CASE: To copy and selectively edit - Make It Your Own! 

Susan Wong



Susan's Card 


With my card I have used the same stamp set Susan has "You've Got This", I started by using the layering ovals and cutting a oval shape on my base card, then with the top layer which is Shimmery White I stamped it in Calypso Coral using the large background stamp from the set.  I then white embossed the flower on top and cut out a larger oval shape using the layering ovals so I could have a nice oval frame showing the Calypso Coral. I then stamped and cut out the flower and water coloured it before adding it to the card. Finally adding the sentiment inside the card so you can view it through the oval shape cut out.

Notecards and Matching Tote Bag


Welcome to another Crazy Crafters Team Project Highlights,  I have made some Note Cards with a matching Tote Bag. I have used Coffee Break Designer Series Paper for my Tote Bag  and the trim on the top and bottom of the bag with Early Espresso Cardstock handles. With my note cards I have used Stampin' Up!® precut and prescored notecards and envelopes (the most cost effective way). I then have my first mat of Early Espresso Cardstock, second mat is Whisper White. I have stamped the image from the Heartland Stamp Set on the front of the notecards and the envelopes. This would make a lovely present or gift of appreciation. Finally I tied a piece of the 1/8" Copper Ribbon on the Tote Bag.

Please check out the other Crazy Crafters Cards/Projects HERE  and please take the time to VOTE FOR YOUR FAVOURITE 5!
