Casually Crafting Blog Hop – Celebration

Welcome to the first Casually Crafting Blog Hop – Celebration. To kick off this new blog hop, and to prepare for Sale-A-Bration commencing 3rd January, we have chosen the theme of Celebration.

The Casually Crafting Design Team are a group of Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who would like to share our projects with you, our take on casual crafting. We will be sharing our projects relating to a selected theme every 3rd Friday of the month. Please check out the Casually Crafting projects from the rest of the Design Team using the photo links at the end of this post.

Celebrate You

For my project I decided to use the Annual Catalogue Piece of Cake stamp set which has a coordinating Cake Builder Punch.

These have been stamped using VersaMark and Copper Embossing Powder on Shimmery White Cardstock, layered on Copper Foil to enhance the Celebration theme. I have also used a couple of other stamp sets which you may already have in your collection to further enhance the celebration theme, these are Vibrant Vases and Making Christmas Bright (these sets are not just for Christmas).

A similar style card could also be achieved using the Sale-A-Bration Happy Birthday to You stamp set which is FREE with any £45 purchase from 3rd January to 31st March.

I also created a Beginner and Avid Crafter style cards on a similar theme and format. For the Beginner card I kept to a single stamp set (a Piece of Cake) with limited layers but using Wink of Stella to add the glitz to the card and layers (who doesn’t use Wink to add glitz). The Avid card included additional die cut layers and embossing folders to add depth and interest.

I hope you enjoyed my Celebration card and our first Casually Crafting Design Team Blog Hop.
