Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest Sandi MacIver




Hello and welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop. We are so honoured to have a very special guest Sandi McIver from Canada joining us. As part of the hop we get to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) any card or project by Sandi. 

I have chosen to CASE Sandi's gorgeous Triple Panel Card below featuring the hot air balloon from the Lift Me Up bundle and the Cupcakes & Carousel DSP. Sandi has a wonderful video tutorial on how to make this card and you can click here to visit her blog for the card tutorial and recipe.








Here is my card...



The Cupcakes & Carousels Suite is such a lovely set using carnival imagery with a vintage flair. 

I have kept the same Bermuda Bay card base and have used the Starburst and the Ferris Wheel pattern from the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP. 

The cute and fun Ferris wheel image has been stamped directly on to the patterned paper and have later cut the panel into 3 equal parts. This has been mounted on to Basic Grey card stock panel.

The individual cupcakes has been stamped and coloured in separately on Whisper White card stock and have die cut using the coordinating dies from the Up & Away thinlits dies that is part of the Lift Me Up bundle.

The horse has been stamped on to Whisper White card stock using Memento Black ink and have coloured it in using Copic markers.

I have added glossy accents to both the cupcakes and horse for that added shine and lift.



The sentiment 'Enjoy Life and Have Fun', is from the Suite Sentiments set and coordinates with this set using similar fonts. 

It has been stamped with Black Stazon Ink and Versamark and have white heat embossed Enjoy to for contrast and to highlight it.




Inside the card is kept simple using the Big top image stamped in Bermuda Bay to coordinate with the base card stock in the corner. It's left blank to use for the right occasion.

I hope you have enjoyed and found inspiration. The Cupcakes and Carousels suite is fun to use and perfect for celebratory events with that vintage carnival imagery.
