Crazy Crafter's July Blog Hop with Special Guest - Tami White



Welcome to another Crazy Crafter's Blog Hop with special guest Tami White and wow - what a privilege. Tami is a Stampin' Up! Demo from America and is very talented. She has a cool periscope channel too which I often catch where she does crafting live. If you'd like to know more about Tami - click on this link to see her amazing blog.



It was hard to choose a card to CASE (copy and selectively edit) as Tami has made so many brilliant cards. I ended up going with one using the Swirly Bird stamp set and matching Framelits as it's one I wanted to play with some more. Here is the card I chose.

And here is the card that I came up with:


I liked that Tami's card consisted of mainly swirls - and so I went with this theme for my background. I used Sweet Sugar Plum cardstock for the swirls and White embossing powder
 for the rest. The sentiment was from 'Thankful Thoughts'.

After making this card - I couldn't just stop at one, and so made a second card with some slight variations. What do you think?

Well thanks for stopping by, don't forget to check out all the other amazing cards that were created by The Crazy Crafters!




Products I used for this card:

  • Swirly Bird bundle
  • Fast fuse
  • Stampin dimensionals
  • White emboss powder
  • Embossing buddy
  • Black cardstock
  • Sweet Sugar Plum cardstock 
  • Thankful Thoughts
  • Black memento ink
  • Clear embossing powder
