Crazy Crafters and Pootlers Blog Hop


Welcome to the Crazy Crafters/Pootlers Blog Hop for December. This month we are excited to show off our “2016 Occasions / Sale’a’bration Sneak Peeks”. We hope you find great inspiration from the projects. You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Louise at Whiteflagdesigns or you may have come from the person previous to me, Sue Vine from MissPinksCraftSpot. Be sure to click on the next button further down to continue your journey on this extra special blog hop with my fellow Pootler’s and our International crafting sister’s from Australia.


I was so excited to get my copy of the new 2016 Occasions catalogue, but I was even more excited when I saw the A Nice Cuppa Stamp Set I love it and couldn’t wait to get my hands on it! The new 2016 Occasions Catalogue starts 2nd January and then you will also be able to get your hands on all these lovely goodies! Not forgetting from 5th January (excitingly jumps around) Sale’a’Bration starts!!


For my card base I used a piece of Whisper White A4 Thick Cardstock cut at 4 1/8 inches and scored at 5 7/8 inches. Using some of the gorgeous Have a Cuppa Designer Series Paper Stack I cut two strips measuring 1 1/2 inches x 5 7/8 inches. I adhered the Crushed Curry piece to my card front using Snail Adhesive. With the Bermuda Bay piece of DSP I did some partial die cutting with the tea cup die from the matching Cups and Kettle Framelits Die Set (which is available as a bundle saving 15%…….Amazing!!!). I then adhered this to my card front also.

I stamped the main image from the stamp set on to some Whisper White A4 Cardstock with some Melon Mambo Classic Ink. I did some “fussy cutting” and popped this up on some Stampin Dimensionals onto my card front.

To finish off the front of my card I stamped the “Steaming” Heart image above my teacups in Melon Mambo ink using the stamping off technique to go along with our theme for this blog hop of “One die or punch, One Stamp Set, One DSP and One Ink”. I also had to add some of the New Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush Pen to my stamped hearts. To top it all off I added some of the It’s My Party Enamel Dots.


For the inside of my card I stamped a sentiment and a cute little heart, in some Melon Mambo ink, from the stamp set.

Well that’s my card for this extra special blog hop with our International friends.

Thanks for hopping by, Louise xx
