Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with our special guest Frenchie Martin

It's not every day that you get to blog hop with someone you have been admiring for what seems like forever. That is, unless you are in the Crazy Crafter team, then you get to join forces with some amazingly talented people every month!

This month we have the privilege to be hopping with Frenchie Martin. We are CASEing (Copy And Selectively Edit) any project that she created. We hope you find great inspiration from the projects.
You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Rosalie Desmond or may have come from the person previous to me.  Be sure to click on the person listed under me further down the page to continue your journey on this blog hop.

When selecting which project I was going to CASE, I kept going back to the same project - Watercolour Joseph Coat. This is Frenchie's card that I CASEd.

For more information about this technique please check out Frenchie's blog.

I don't remember seeing this technique before and just loved the look. So I took this opportunity to give it a go. I used a slightly different take on Frenchie's project - I sponged my colours before I embossed rather than water colouring.

This first card uses the Flourishing Phrases stamp set. I sponged using Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Emerald Envy, then clear embossed the images and covered the paper in Dapper Denim.

I loved the look of this technique so much that I just had to try it with different stamp sets. This time I used the Vintage Leaves set. Sponged in Melon Mambo, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Emerald Envy, then clear embossed the images and covered the paper in Dapper Denim.

This is my third card, this time using the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set. I sponged in Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Real Red. Clear embossed the images over the sponging and covered the paper in Dapper Denim.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the remainder of the blog hop,

A little play with a swirly bird

There are so many products that I love in the new 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue.

The Swirly Bird stamp set was one of the first on my list (yes, that ever growing wish list). It ticks so many boxes. It stamps well, and is so versatile.

I had a bit of a play with it the other day and came up with a few designs, so then we played with it in class as well. Everyone was impressed!

So first thing I thought of when I saw this stamp set, were kites.

Class cards

Then of course I saw flowers.

Some more cards from class

And then finally a boat.

Thanks for stopping by,

Sleepover Invitations

My daughter is about to have a sleepover party with some of her friends. Now as you may know, much of the fun is in the planning. Apparently they have been discussing at school, all of the fun things they are going to do.

She has chosen to have a colour theme of pink, black and gold. So the first thing that comes to my mind is Stampin' Up!s new speciality paper- Pop of Pink!

So paper is decided!

She then scrolls through pintrest, choosing the design she likes. Once that was chosen, we set off to work.

This is what we came up with together.

She wanted to see what one would look like embossed. So I grabbed some Melon Mambo Cardstock and the new Seaside Embossing folder and made a front for her invitation.

On the flip side was the place for the party details. I printed these out using my printer on Whisper White cardstock. The touch of pink, comes from the hearts in the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamp Set, stamped with Melon Mambo ink.

Thanks for stopping by,

Don't forget the two Stampin' Up! June specials! Extra Stampin' Rewards for orders over $450 and also the joining special. Click here for more details.
