Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Special Guest: Sarah Berry

Image may contain: text
Welcome to the Crazy Crafters' Blog Hop with our Special Guest stamper, Sarah Berry - we are thrilled to have Sarah join us this month and so excited to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) any project that has been created by her.

Whether you are starting the blog hop here at my blog, Stephanie Fischer - The Crafty Thinker, or have come from the person before me, be sure to click on the person listed under me further down the page to continue your journey through the blog hop.

To the left is Sarah's gorgeous card that I chose to CASE.  It was a very difficult choice - I found so many of her cards that I admire!  I love the neutral colours in this card that form the perfect backing to the pop of colour.  I also love the layout and simplicity and the background of repeating stamped images ... well, the list of what I like about it could go and on!

I decided to take the basic premise of Sarah's card and make a Christmas card using the Beautiful Baubles bundle (Beautiful Baubles stamp set and Detailed Baubles dies sold together at a saving of 10%).

Sarah used the lovely soft, warm neutral, Sahara Sand for her romantic card.  I chose the slightly cooler Granite Gray to go with the Christmas theme.

I was gratified by how quickly and easily the card came together.  I probably spent the most time tying the little knot in the Gold Cord and then keeping it in place with the application of some glue.  So I made another four in a variety of colours.  In order to keep them simple, easy to post and with minimised product cost, I omitted the Gold Cord and and Metallic Pearls and I'm still happy with the result.  I'll be making quite a few more of these as I need to make a lot of Christmas cards in a short space of time.

    1. Thank you, Carol! Yes, I know what you mean about not feeling Christmas-y in hot weather. It took me several years to adjust to Christmas down under!

  7. Very pretty, Stephanie! I've been 'on the fence'about the lace edgelits...they are the perfect addition to these sweet cards!

    1. Hi, RaeDeen! Thank you for your lovely comment! I can see what you mean - I usually shy away from edgelits a bit but I've found these ones to be quite versatile - they're earning their keep!
