Crazy Crafter's Blog Hop



Welcome to the February Crazy Crafter's Blog Hop.  If you are following the Blog Hop you would have come from Tamie Holt at Tamie Luvs Craft2  .  This Blog Hop we have used products from Stampin' Up's new Occasions Catalogue which is released in Australia this month.  Whooo Hooooo!  It is full of exciting new products that I am totally enjoying using but I ordered so much from it I had a hard time coming up with a card for this Blog Hop because I wanted to use it all at once.  In the end I made a very simple White and Gold card.
I really love all the stamp sets from the new catty especially the floral sets.  I vary rarely stamp straight onto the card I usually do a card front and then adhere that to the card because I am too scared of making a mistake but decided to give it a go this time and it worked!  I stamped the large flower from the Peaceful Petals stamp set randomly all over the card in Versamark Ink then embossed in Gold embossing powder adding a gold sequin to the centre of each flower.  The Washi Tape is from the Watercolour Wonder Designer Washi Tape set and then I added a strip of Gold Foil carried over from the last catty.
The Banner is made using the new Banner Framelits Dies which I just love, and the sentiment is from the Peaceful Petals stamp set as well.  The little flower is from the Petite Petals stamp set which also has the matching Punch as well.  If you buy the stamp set and punch together as a bundle you will save 15%.  I also embossed the Petite Petals stamp in Gold embossing powder and added a sequin to the centre. I wrapped the new Gold Baker's Twine several times around the front of the card, the Baker's Twine is so gorgeous and it comes in Gold and Silver and is thicker and softer than our other Baker's Twine but just awesome to use.
 I used the following products to make this card:
Whisper White cardstock106549
Gold Foil Sheet 132622
Peaceful Petals stamp set clear 133107
Petite Petals Bundle(stamp set and punch) clear 134822
