Crazy Crafters’ Blog Hop with Special Guest Amy Koenders


Welcome to the Crazy Crafters’ Blog Hop with special guest Amy Koenders. Amy is an extremely talented paper crafter from Georgia, Atlanta in the USA and our team is very excited to be hopping with her today. You can check out Amy’s blog by clicking on her picture.



We are each CASEing (Copying and Selectively Editing) one of Amy’s designs today. I chose the card below. I love the simple, elegant style of Amy’s card, and the little geometric strip peeping out below the banner. I took that idea, and the three panels to make my card.


I chose a blue/green colour palette and cut a bunch of the strip die-cut from the Flourish Thinlits Dies in Mint Macaron, Bermuda Bay and Pacific Point. Don’t they look gorgeous together? I adhered two each to panels in the same colours.


The sentiment is a sneak peek of a new item from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue – Suite Sentiments Stamp Set. I’m telling you, you NEED this set! It has so many gorgeous sentiments in the most adorable fonts! I used my markers to create an ombre effect. I used the brand new Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies to crop the sentiment and then adhered it to a layer of Mint Macaron using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. I just love how these dies all layer together. I offset the layering to add interest, and added some hearts from the Brights Enamel Shapes pack in Pacific Point. This image also shows the Wink of Stella I added to the die-cuts – so sparkly!


I added some Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon and finished the inside off with another of the die-cuts.


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!

    Gail I really enjoy your take on Amy’s card, you have flipped it and added blue ombre. How you have carried the ombre through with your lattice and base colours to perfection is very clever. It really enhances the sentiment.
