Crazy Crafters Blog Hop

Saturday, September 08, 2018

Hello friends, thanks for popping in! I'm Zahra Premji, from Toronto, Canada! Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop and my blog, My Pretty Inkspirations. I'm both honoured and excited to have been asked to be a guest on the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop! The Crazy Crafters are Kylie Bertucci's amazing team in Australia!

As you might have noticed, I don't blog often, so when my dear friend Kylie asked me to be a guest, I felt a little frightened and intimidated. But as they say, 'life begins at the end of your comfort zone', so I'm stepping out ;)

At the end of my post, you'll see a list of the other Crazy Crafter bloggers that are hopping with me! Be sure to check out their blogs and lovely creations. Everyone in the hop is choosing a card from my blog to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit), I've chosen one too!

I chose to CASE this 👆 card using the Quilted Christmas Suite in non-traditional colours from last year's Holiday Catalogue. You can read more about it HERE. I just loved the layers and details on this card. Here's the one I created using the layout as inspiration:

I used products from the new Frosted Floral Suite, which is currently my FAVE in the new Holiday Catalogue 😍 This gorgeous frosted Designer Series Paper has me drooling swooning! I also LOVE the floral image stamps in this set, as well as the font - I'm a total sucker for a good font...

Can you see the stamped florals on the Gray Granite card base? I used a brand new product in the Holiday Catalogue, shimmer paint! I love all things shimmery and sparkly, so this had my name written all over it! It's hard to see the shimmer in the photos, but trust me, it's shimmery and beautiful 😍

In keeping with the non-traditional holiday card colour theme, I went with Gray Granite, Night of Navy and Powder Pink...I just love these colours together, will definitely be using this combo again!

Here's the card recipe:
  • Gray Granite Card Base - 4.25" x 11"
  • Night of Navy layer - 3.25" x 4.5", embossed with (new) Corrugated Embossing Folder
  • Powder Pink layer - 3.25" x 3.25"
  • Frosted Floral DSP layer - 3 1/8" x 3 1/8"
  • Layering Scalloped Circle - Gray Granite
  • Stitched Shape Circle - whisper white
  • Leaf Punch cutouts - vellum
Here's another card I created, inspired by the same layout, using the Peaceful Noel Stamp set, Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper and the new - and might I say, AWESOME - Sprig Punch

Thanks again for stopping by! Check out the amazing creations by the Crazy Crafters, a huge thanks for letting me craft with you!!



In LOVE with Apron of Love!

Hey there lovely,

Thanks for dropping by! While I don't get around to blogging as often as I would like, I do really enjoy sharing my creations with others, so I'm happy you're here!

I'll be honest, I've had the Apron of Love Bundle for quite some time now and have seen many fun creations with it, but had no idea where to start playing with it! Enter the #tgif149 Color Challenge - it was exactly the jumping off point I needed for this fun set! Thinking back, I really ordered this bundle so I could make a card for my mom, who is my rock and is ALWAYS there for me 'in a pinch'. I know it's a little early for Mother's Day, but I didn't need an occasion to let my mom know I love her 💚

And here's my card:

I wasn't sure at first how I was going to use so much green on the card without it looking too tarty, so I decided to add some black and white to a lightly watercolored background and was so happy with how it turned out! I used a striped pattern paper from the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper, this paper is so versatile and pretty. I also loooooove the gold touches on the card. I could hear Austin Powers' voice in my head saying " I love goooold" as I kept adding gold detail after gold detail 😉

The sentiment - Best Mom Ever - is embossed with clear embossing powder over black ink - first time I've ever done that - will definitely be doing it again, I loved it! Here's a closer look at some of the details:

I see many possibilities with this bundle - if you don't have it, you should definitely get it and start playing! You can shop my Online Store anytime!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
