Crazy Crafters and Pootlers Blog Hop


Welcome to the Crazy Crafters and Pootles Blog Hop for December.  This month we are excited to show you some fabulous projects using products from the new Occasions Catalogue - Handmade from the Heart and Sale-A-Brations. 

This month we are delighted to have the famous Pootles - Sam Hammond Donald and her lovely team playing along with us! All the way from the UK. Sam is VERY talented and has a following all around the world. Thanks to Sam and her team! 

I decided to create this simple card using the Party with Cake Stamp Set and Party Pop Up Thinlits, which are amazing - you're going to love them! 

Our theme for this hop was "one", one stamp set, one die, one ink, one embellishment etc - what a challenge! It does highlight how easy it is to make beautiful cards from a small amount of product.  I opted for black cardstock, with the sentiment stamped in versa mark and embossed in white.  The two slices of cake are embossed on black card, fussy cut and stuck on with dimensionals.

Now for the inside (my favourite part of the card).   I used the Party Pop Up Thinlit to create the Happy Birthday on 5"x 5" very vanilla cardstock (I found this size works best for the pop up).  As with the cover I used black cardstock and white embossing for the sentiment.

To add a bit of 'sparkle' I did use the clear wink of stella glitter brush over the words  'Happy Birthday' and on the candle flames - shhhh!
