CRAZY CRAFTERS BLOG HOP WITH LEA DENTON




Welcome once again to a Crazy Crafters Blog Hop. This time we are CASEing (Copy And Selectively Edit) any project that has been created by Lea Denton. I am so excited to have Lea joining us today, her work is absolutely amazing. You should check out her blog. We hope you find great inspiration from todays projects.

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Rosalie Desmond or may have come from the person previous to me. Be sure to click on the person listed under me further down the page to continue your journey on this blog hop.

Here is what Lea inspired me to make today. I had a purpose in mind when making this card. A friend has recently been ill and I wanted to wish her well. The sentiment "Sending Wishes Your Way" can be used for so many different events, in this case as a Get Well sentiment.




This is Lea's card that I CASED. I used the concept of using beautiful colours and using emboss resist to create my card. I also Used a similar layout and turned it  portrait rather than landscape.



I sponged Blushing Bride, Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party and Peekaboo Peach on a clear embossed image from Lovely As A Tree to create my image. The sentiment is from Butterfly Basics. I then added some metallic enamel shapes to finish it off.



Thank you for joining me today. I hope you enjoy the remainder of the blog hop,
Rosalie


ESAD EASTERN PALACE SUITE BLOG HOP




I hope you are enjoying all the gorgeous projects in the ESAD Eastern Palace Suite Blog Hop.

We have been enough to have a suite from the new 2017-2018 Catalogue early. It is an amazing collection of a stamp set, thinlits, inks, card stock, designer series paper, stickers, and tassels. What makes this even better is that it is available to everyone as bundles right now!

You may have come from the wonderful  Ellen Woodbridge or be starting the hop here with me, Rosalie Desmond.

Recently, I have been really having some fun with this suite. I have found that it works with almost any colour scheme and the designs you can make are almost endless. So if you are looking for some versatile products, this suite is certainly worth a look. Here is a card that I would love to share with you today.



I have teamed up the lovely Specialty Designer Series paper with some  Daffodil Delight and Tranquil Tide card stock and some stamping. If you thought you just read a new colour, you are absolutely correct. Tranquil Tide is one of this years new in-colours. The gorgeous spotty piece of paper is from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper which highlights another new in-colour, Lemon Lime Twist.







Thank you for joining me today. I hope you have fun and enjoy hopping around the whole hop. Next you will find the lovely, Cathy Pinchbeck.

CRAZY CRAFTERS SNEAK PEEK BLOG HOP










Welcome once again to a Crazy Crafters Blog Hop. This time we are giving you a sneak peek from the upcoming 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue. The new annual catalogue is so amazing I can't wait until you have a chance to see the catalogue. We hope you find great inspiration from todays projects.

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Rosalie Desmond or may have come from the person previous to me. Be sure to click on the person listed under me further down the page to continue your journey on this blog hop.

I have decided to show you an amazing suite which is in the new catalogue called Eastern Palace. The suite consists of a stamp set, matching dies, speciality designer series paper, stickers, tassels and cardstock. Everything you need to create so many amazing projects.

I love this set so much. It works so well with every colour. I used Flirty Flamingo, Blushing Bride and Whisper White to create this card. I used a stamp from the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set to create a special background.






I love how these thinlits can make almost anything. On this card I have used them to make a flower. I then added a little banner of silver foil to add a little bling.




Thank you for joining me today. I hope you enjoy the remainder of the blog hop,
Rosalie


SCREEN CARD

With so many different types of card folds out there, my to-do list is amazingly long. Screen cards were huge on the internet last year and I have finally got around to making my first one. Better late than never they say.

Here is my first screen card which uses Touches of Texture.




My screen card has four sections which are all 7cm wide. This allows for the opportunity to have multiple pictures.



Thank you for joining me today,
Rosalie

TAG TUESDAY #1

Happy Tuesday everyone!!

This blog post is the first in a series that I have named, Tag Tuesday. Tags are a very recent addition to my crafting experience. With a combination of inspiration from an amazing crafter, Bobby Fort, and a wonderful opportunity, I have taken up being a guest on a Swap Design Team for Aussie Crafters. I have had the concept of Altered Tags thrust upon me. So why not make this into a regular Tuesday series, at least for awhile. I hope you have fun checking out my work, that is outside my norm and my comfort zone, but still so much fun.

Here is the first tag I have to share with you. This one is a grungy Dragonfly Dreams tag.




I used one of the thinlits from the Eastern Medallions set to cut out shapes in the Very Vanilla cardstock to allow some of the colour to poke through.
