Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest - Sarah Berry


Welcome and thank you for joining me in a special Crazy Crafters team blog hop.

We are hopping with a special guest - The amazing Sarah Berry.

The theme of this blog hop was to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) one of Sarah's cards.


Here is the card of Sarah's that I chose to CASE:



I really liked the layout of this card, especially the narrower card front and wanted to give this a try. To checkout Sarah's card in more detail click here.


Here is my version:





I have used the new Jar of Love stamp set for my card and thought it would look great using yellows & greens.

My flowers are stamped using So Saffron & Daffodil delight, with the stems & leaves in Garden Green. I went with Pool Party for the water in my Jar (which is stamped in Tuexdo Black). The flower heads were cut using the coordinating Everyday Jars framelits (you can purchase the stamp set and matching framelits in a bundle and save 10%).

My card base is Daffodil Delight with the card inner a patterned designer series sheet in Garden Green.

The "For You" sentiment is also part of the Jar of Love stamp set and is stamped in Garden Green. My banner is a shortened banner from the Gift Card Envelope & Trims thinlits set.

I decorated the inside of the card with some extra die cut flowers I had left over after creating my card front.

A nice simple card suited for any occasion. Hope you like it.

  7. Kirsten, you have made this card perfect. It is so crisp and clean every part has detail, I love how the inside of the card is totally covered with DSP, and then there is still so much more in the inside, yes it is only 3 little flowers but where you have placed them it makes the card look so finished, I can imagine the recipient of this card open and close it a few times to see if those flowers have actually fallen from the Mason Jar on the front. :)

    1. Thanks so much Christine. Initially I hadn't thought about decorating the inside, but I ended up with some extra flowers so thought it would be a nice touch (thank you for noticing :) ). I too really like the fully DSP covered inside, must do this more often, just finishes off what usually is the boring part of the card :)

    1. Thanks so much Fiona. It was a little difficult to try and not over do the number of flowers in the jar and make it too big, I am very happy with the layout I went with in the end.
