Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest Jay Soriano

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

We are hopping with a special guest - The very talented Jay Soriano from the United Kingdom. Jay is a supporting Stampin' Up demonstrator to his partner Barry, who together are known as Mitosu Crafts.

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

It was hard to choose a card with so many wonderful creations out there and there were a number of amazing cards that I felt I just wouldn't be able to do them any justice, so I settled on this fun card as I really loved the layout.

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

To checkout Jay's card in more detail click here.

Here is my version:

My woodland themed card uses the Foxy Friends stamp set, the Woodland embossing folder and the Fairy Celebration stamp set for my sentiment.

I stamped my images from Foxy Friends using Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi & Soft Suede. The layered scalloped circles use matching card stock. I have also cut out a small banner for each, using the small banner from the Large Numbers Framelits set. Each circle is raised off the card using some dimensionals.

The centre panel is Crumb Cake cardstock embossed using the Woodland embossing folder.

My sentiment comes from the Fairy Celebration set and is stamped with Soft Suede ink. The banner from the Popcorn Box Thinlits was the perfect size to cut out my sentiment.

A super cute birthday card that I will be giving my youngest son for his birthday next week.
I hope he likes it :)

I have included my cute card in The Joy of Sets first challenge #jos001, using a stamp set starting with the letter "F". My card created using Foxy Friends and Fairy Celebration fits in perfectly :)

My card also fits in with this weeks Global Design Project: Kids Theme Challenge #GDP095
