Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest Valerie Moody

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

I have chosen to CASE Valerie's cute and adorable 'Tasty Trucks' card below. I love the simplicity of this card and yet it's so effective. It's such a versatile set and looks great with any sentiment or stamp set. 

I have been having so much fun playing around with this set and great for colouring in.
You can get this set for free from Sale-A-bration with any purchase over $90 and it's just fabulous.

I have taken the colour inspiration from Valerie's card with the Pool Party and have used it in a simple yet bold way, showing the creativity you can achieve with this set.

The main feature in this card is the  circles using the large polka dot embossing folder as well as the Stitched shapes circle framelit. I have cropped it to give it something different and play with the layout. The Tasty Truck has been coloured in using copic markers and what a joy it is to colour in using this cute image.

This card uses the 'Enjoy' sentiment from Everyday Tags and just love this layout getting the most out of the stamp set. The Tasty Truck has been stamped onto Pool Party carstock and have fussy cut it out. The windows have been stamped on whisper white cardstock and also cut out and mounted on top. The wheels have been punched out using the Owl punch builder, a tip from another Stampin' Up! demonstrator, however, I forgot her name sorry but thank you so much for this great tip. 

The next card is simple again but has technique using ink blending and white heat embossing. I have used  Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils here with a blender pen to smooth out the colours. It's all on one layer too and mounted with fun foam for an even raise. The creativity is endless with this set.

I hope you have enjoyed and found inspiration. I would love to hear you thoughts. The Tasy Trucks is a wonderful set to have with and you'll have endless fun with colouring in and make the most cutest cards ever hehe.
