Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Special Guest Wendy Cranford

Thank you for joining us today for our Crazy Crafters Blog Hop! We are thrilled to be hopping with the amazing Wendy Cranford today. Wendy is a high-achieving demonstrator from the US. She is currently ranked 10 Overall in the US and ranked 14 in the Global 100. WOW! Go Wendy!

Here is a pic we took with Wendy and Missy Mills  one of my Crazy Crafter on the Explorer of the Seas whilst cruising in Alaska. 

We are all going to be casing Wendys work so we can be inspired by the colours she has used, or the layout.... Whatever we decide catches our eye and gives us creative inspiration.

Here is the project of Wendy's that I have been inspired by today -

What I liked was the layout of the card and the banner sentiment across a circular element. Using the gorgeous new Products from Stampin' Up!® this is the card that I came up with today -

I started with a Sahara Sand card base. I went for a Portrait card with the bottom opening. I used a number fo different products

Needle and Thread Bundle
For the flowers, I stamped the flowers in Petal Pink and Sahara Sand. It is great as the stamp is in one piece and there is a coordinating framelit. I embossed the highland heather piece of card stock and then punched this shape out using the Prety Label Punch. I stamped the sentiment using Highland Heather and cut this into a thin banner.

Well Written Framelits
As an accompaniment to the stamped sentiment, I added the word friend. I added Adhesive Sheets to the rear of a piece of petal pink and cut out. I then stuck this down.

Doily Builder Thinlits Dies
I was going to leave the card as it but I tried adding the doily piece in Highland Heather. I love the way it looks with it.

Finally, I added some of the cute little Needlepoint Nook Buttons. These are in Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand and Petal Pink so they matched the card perfectly.

I love how this card turned out. Of course, it wasn't the way I envisaged it, but i still love it!
