Welcome to the Crazy Crafters’ Blog Hop with special guest Cindy Schuster. Cindy is a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator from  Georgia, USA and a current Artisan Team Member. And it’s clear to see why Cindy was chosen to be an Artisan – her designs are unique and beautiful. Our team is very excited to be hopping with her today. You can check out Cindy’s blog by clicking on her picture.

We are each CASEing (Copying and Selectively Editing) one of Cindy’s designs today. I chose the trio of cards below. I love how Cindy has showcased Stampin’ Up!’s gorgeous Designer Series Paper, and these are just so sweet with their ribbons, trims and doilies backing the focal image.

For my notecard sized trio I used a Hostess set and DSP from the upcoming 2017 Occasions Catalogue – Iconic Occasions Stamp Set and Party Animal DSP. I’ve also highlighted the Stitched Shapes Framelits which have been released ahead of next year’s Annual Catalogue and only available until November 30, so you have only 4 days left to grab them!

Iconic Occasions Stamp Set comes with 10 cute little images and coordinating sentiments for different occasions. I also decorated the envelope flaps with the matching DSP for each card.

My first card features the 2015-2017 In Colour Doilies. You can use the reverse side like I’ve done here if you want a white one. I’ve also used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Layering Circles Framelits.

For this card I’ve used a few different images and circled the “correct” one in red. You could make a card with all 10 images and circle the one that matches the sentiment you use – such a fun set! This card also uses the Delicate White Doilies and some Mint Macaron ribbon from the trio pack in the Holiday Catalogue.

For card #3 I’ve stamped the bandaid image onto the spotted DSP and used some Emerald Envy Ruched Ribbon and some of the matching metallic thread from the Holiday Catalogue. So lush – I love these!

 

The products from the new Occasions Catalogue will be available to order from January 4, 2017. If you can’t wait that long, you can join, purchase them on December 1, and get 20% discount.

 

To continue along the hop, select the person next on the list after me, Gail Davidson, to see all the gorgeous creations from Amy and the rest of the Crazy Crafters. But before you go, if you like my design, I’d love it if you could take the time to leave a comment to let me know!
