I have just found an unpublished blog hop post from quite some time ago that had not been completed of scheduled. So I thought I would pop it up now for everyone to see. I loved Brians use of lilttle tags so I cased that part of his project, also he made many of these adorable little boxes, so I decided to make many of the little sets below for everyone at onstage on the Gold Coast in April.

Welcome to another CC Blog Hop. To see all of the wonderful creations, see the full line up with their links below. If you have the time please leave us a comment as it makes our day to see others loving what we do. This time we are CASEing the super talented Amy Koenders. So for the Hop the card I chose was this one below. It's very simple and sweet and I am dying to use some of the NEW 2017 Occasions Catalogue DSP and I thought this was the perfect project to highlight it...
This is the project I decided to CASE
And this is my take on the project...

What is a bit hilarious to me is that I didn't end up using a butterfly on my card. I busted open this stamp set for the first time to make this little beauty.
Sparkly Seasons is the Stamp set used for this card and what a gorgeous little set it is, I love that it's easy to see through the photopolymer to line up and layer on the project. I used Candy Cane Lane DSP (yes I actually used DSP for a change lol) this paper is so gorgeous I couldn't resist buying it. Colours used were Soft Sky, Real Red, Soft Suede and Tangerine Tango for the snowmans cutest little nose. I used Dazzling Diamonds for the snow and used the acetate sheet from the stamp set to make my globe glass. Foam Adhesive Strips are perfect to keep all that glitter where it is meant to be. And Merriest Wishes is the set for the Sentiment. I like how it turned out and my kids LOVE it lol they're all asking for it for their teachers for christmas.
Feel free to leave a comment with your opinions or suggestions, I love hearing from you all.
Until next time Stay Well and Happy Crafting. Tamie xx

The joy of CASEing is that it has so many meanings, I like Copy And Selectively Edit. With that in mind I made this little cutie into a full sized card.
Only Whisper White Cardstock was used for this project. The stamp set I used here is I Think You're Great. The colours used are Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Bermuda Bay. I used a little Silver Metallic Thread. and the beautiful stars were made using the Hearts and Stars Decorative Masks, ink and sponge daubers. Add a little Snail, some dimensionals and a glue dot and you end up with this delightful card.
I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it.
Until next time stay well and happy crafting. Tamie xx

Welcome to another CC Blog Hop. To see all of the wonderful creations see the full line up with their links below. If you have the time please leave us a comment as it makes our day to see others loving what we do. This time we are CASEing the super talented Sarah Berry. How to choose just one of her creations....? Impossible! So come back tomorrow and I will have another creation of hers that I have cased ;-). So for the Hop the card I chose was this one below. It's so simple and sweet and I am a sucker for butterflies, also I don't use ribbons etc enough on my cards so I thought this was the perfect card for me.

Have you ever made something and thought I've never seen that done before? Yeah, me too. And then you google it.... hmmm bugger. Well I did it again! And then I searched it and I couldnt find it anywhere, yippie!
So heres what I did.
I used the 'tree branches' die out of the thinlits die I cut it out in Cherry Cobbler card stock. I then chopped off the trunk and turned it upside down (i was thinking of big hero6 at this point, you know, when the little brother was frustrated because what he was making wasn't working how he wanted it), I used the small handheld punch to punch two holes so I could fit the single strand from the new twine through. Then i took another strand and tied the bow. I stamped the sentiment and set it on a backing then was stumped, i had been usong scraps off my desk and they ran out (booo), so i grabbed my cherry cobbler marker and my ruler and free handed some 'stitching' as a surround for the card. Ive showed some of our team and i got the comment that this made it look 'rustic' I love that description!

Hi, so happy you could drop by. Today I am part of a blog hop with the Crazy Crafters, we are CASEing Wendy Cranford this hop and wowee was it a challenge to choose just one thing. I was searching through all of Wendys posts and got to one that was close to home. It was an Autism Matters Blog which is important to me because my beautiful daughter has Autism, and to have awareness brought to the condition is very important, not just for those who have ASD but also those who care for and are involved with them on a daily basis so they can understand there is a difference between a Temper Tantrum and a Meltdown and that all of those involved are amazing human beings. But enough of that, I could talk all day about it. I also loved this project because it was a watercolour card, something that I love the look of but have never been very good at. So here's Wendys gorgeous card....
How stunning is that. I absolutely LOVE it! Now as seems to be the norm with me I couldn't find what I needed to make this, (watercolor paper) oops.... So I started watching youtube videos to learn how to do it so it didn't look like mine was done by a kindergartner. Wow there are a lot of different methods.
Now on to the solution. I recalled a great friend of mine Angela (click to go to her blog) saying to me that Shimmer White cardstock works for watercolour, and I had some (winning). So I got to making. And I came up with two cards as I tried two different styles that were completely different but totally gorgeous so I couldn't choose which one to feature which means you get to see both.
