Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest Billie Moan

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

We are hopping with a special guest - The very creative Billie Moan, from the United States. Billie has been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator since 2005, so 12 years! How inspiring.

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

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

Here is my version:

I have gone with a similar layout to Billie's card, however I have used colours from the Brights family - Melon Mambo, Old Olive & Daffodil Delight.

I cut out my flowers and leaves using the Botanical Builder framelits (which are sadly retiring at the end of the current Annual Catalogue) and then stamped the line pattern and leaf veins from the Botanical Blooms stamp set (which too is retiring soon). My sentiment comes from the Blooms & Wishes stamp set.

I adhered my flower and leaves, then added a couple of randomly placed Melon Mambo sequins from the Brights Sequin Assortment (these are retiring soon too).

This was a super quick and easy card to put together.

I hope you like my bright and colourful card inspired by Billie.

There are a number of items used in my project that are sadly retiring with the end of the current catalogue, so if you are considering purchasing these items, then don't delay, grab them today before stocks run out and they are gone forever :(
