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 very talented and inspiring Sarah Berry from the UK.

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:

This is an oldie of Sarah's from 2016, but I just loved the layout and thought it was going to work perfectly for a Baby Congratulations card I needed to make.

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

Here is my version:

I started off by stamping the cute elephant from A Little Wild in memento ink on some Whisper White cardstock and then coloured it using my Stampin' Blends (Light & Dark Smoky Slate and the retired Light & Dark Pink Pirouette - as I don't have the new light pink Blends yet). Then I used the Scalloped Tag Topper punch at the top of my cardstock piece, and stapled a small piece of the Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon through the tag hole at the top.

The sentiment, from the Petal Palette stamp set, is heat embossed in White on a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock and then cut out using the co-ordinating framelit from the Petals & More set. This was then adhered to my tag using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

My cardbase is Blushing Bride with a Whisper White layer on top. The Blushing Bride dot patterned designer series paper is from the Tropical Escape pack.

To finish off the card, I adhered my tag to my cardbase using some Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.

I felt the card was missing something, so I popped on a cute Blushing Bride Enamel Heart above the elephant.

The little heart came from the Subtles Enamel Shapes, which are sadly retired, however you could easily replace it with another embellishment of your choice :)

  1. So adorable, I will be making a similar card soon as I need a baby card.

    1. Thanks so much Sherlie :) I think this will be a layout I use a lot now, it is just so versatile, just change the DSP & cardstock colours and it can suit a Baby Boy or Girl.

  2. What a great choice to CASE! Your card is such a cute take on it!

  3. I LOVE your baby-girl version of Sarah's card - and I am really enjoying Kylie's 'Crazy Crafter's' Blog hop! Tfs ~ C ~
