World Card Making Sending Week & A Botanical Bliss Card

Jessie and I had an amazingly productive day today - we made over 60 cards for the Crazy Crafters team Onstage event (we will post them in November) We also made sure we did some World Card Making Day Sending too! 

One of our favourite people to send some cards to, was our new friend Jamie from Wales in the UK.


Jamie is 8 years old and his Grandma Wendy said that he watches my videos and loves them! How adorable. He was even impressed that his grandma and I were friends on Facebook and wanted to know if we will come and visit them. (SO CUTE). He is having a tough time at school and not very confident. So we knew that this was the perfect candidate for some card spam for World Card Making Sending Week.

So we sent Jamie a card each from Jessie, Bruno and I. We know he is going to LOVE receiving this mail. If you would also like to send Jamie a card - You can contact me and I can pass on his address (with permission from his Mum).

I love that our craft can bring people from all backgrounds and places and can make a difference in a BIG way. So special! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️.

I also did some card making tonight and was inspired by the incredible Brandi Barnard! We got to cruise with her and her Hubby John earlier this year and we were seated together for dinner. Oh we had so much fun!


This is the card that Brandi gave us on the Cruise - 



I absolutely love this stunning card that she gave us with the Purple Posy, Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather and Seaside Spray. WOW! Brandi! You can check out her blog HERE.

This is the card that I made today after being inspired by Brandi's amazing card.
I have used Melon Mambo as the base, then Costal Cabana and Gorgeous Grape. LOVE ❤️ ❤️ ❤️.




I added a pop of Basic Black cardstock and the Basic Black Scalloped Edge Ribbon that is found on page 53 of the Holiday Catalogue. The droplet embellishments are a new go to for me and are the Clear Epoxy Droplets. The sentiment is also from the Botanical Bliss Stamp set and was embossed in white.

For those that have my card templates here are my measurements -
Melon Mambo Card Base - Gorgeous Grape layer
First Layer Basic Black - Melon Mambo layer
Second Layer, Whisper White - Flirty Flamingo Layer
Melon Mambo Strip for the sentiment - Width of the Flirty Flamingo layer and height you prefer.
