Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Tracy May



Guess who we get to hop with this time?? Tracy May! Tracy is a lovely Stampin' Up! demonstrator located in the UK. If you haven't seen her work then you need to change that and visit her blog.

This month we are all excited to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) any project that has been created by Tracy May. 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.


This card is one of my favourites of Tracy's. I am not sure if it is the simplicity, the balance or the really cute scoring on the side of the card that makes it so amazing. Most likely its just the perfect combination, in any case, I just had to give this one a go to CASE. For full details of her card, please click here.







Here is my card that was inspired by Tracy's design.




I used a Bermuda Bay card base. I stamped using the Time of Year set in Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo and Archival Black ink. The butterfly is cut out of Melon Mambo card stock with silver thread behind. I then put a light coat of Wink of Stella over the whisper white card to give it a shimmer.





I like the look of the scoring at the side of the card so much that I made a second card using the Butterfly Basics set with Perfect Plum cardstock, Blushing Bride and Archival Black ink.





The butterfly is out of blushing bride glimmer paper, with a touch of silver thread behind.





I hope you enjoy the blog hop.

Thanks for stopping by,

    1. Thanks Sue. I couldn't get my lighting right tonight and it was ever so dark and rainy here in Melbourne. The little butterfly is full of sparkle thanks to Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, but its not showing up in the photos.

  16. Greetings from Portland, Oregon, USA!

    I am looking for ideas using the stamp set SWEET CUPCAKE.

    I would like to make a variety of note cards and thank you notes.
    My children are hosting a birthday party for my one year old granddaughter - there will be 40 attending.
    I would like my gift to be thank you cards for recipients to receive as thank you notes.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Christine

    1. Hi Christine,
      Thanks for stopping by. I don't actually own this stamp set, so I can't assist personally with any ideas.

      What I do suggest, is that you google "Sweet Cupcake Stampin' Up!" and take a look at the images that pop up, until you find ones that you like. The other alternative, is to use Pintrest and use the same search.

      I use this same technique when I feel a little lost for ideas.

      I hope this helps.

      Rosalie
