Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Billie Moan

Hi Blog hoppers! Thank you for coming by and having a look at what I have made today!
Today the Crazy Crafters are very lucky to be blog hopping with the amazing U.S. Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Billie Moan!  Wow what an honour!  You are currently visiting my blog – Sandra Mastello in Australia and you will be visiting lots of different places in your hop today. There is a list at the end of the page which will help you to move along.
There is soo much inspiration over at Billies Blog, Rambling Rose Studio, and I chose this gorgeous creation to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit)
As you are most likely aware there is a new Annual Catalogue due to be released in June (Click here to subscribe for your copy) so a lot of us demos are in mourning for all the products due to be retired, in this spirit I will be showcasing at least one retiring item every day between now and then, plus maybe sneaking a few new ones in!
In that spirit here are my cards for today,  I absolutely love Kraft cardstock (133674) so this will be a sad one to say good bye to, I just love the way the water colour (141709) pencils really create wonderful depth on it.  To keep the colour really bright put down a layer of the white pencil first, then come in with your other colours.
This stamp set is going too :( its called Helping me grow (140764) I have given it a lot of love so it is very fitting that this is one of the first to say farewell to.

For this card I used my blender pens (102845) and as you can see they give a slightly different look to the layered pencil on the card above.
Thanks for dropping by, don’t forget if you live in Australia and would like to purchase any of the items used today just click on the links below and you will be taken to my online store.

  7. Hi Sandra :) great minds think a like!.. I am going to miss this set so much too :( I love your colour choices and the difference between the pencils alone and with the blender pens. I adore how these water colour pencils layer colours so easily for depth and texture. Gorgeous work xx
