Crazy Crafters Favourites Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for the very first Crazy Crafters Favourites Blog Hop. We hope you enjoy our virtual hop where you will either learn great techniques for your paper crafting projects or enjoy a chance to win some blog candy!

You should have just left stop number 1 on the Crazy Crafters Hop - Kylie Bertucci at Crafty Kylie.  If so, you are in the right spot. If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

My project for the hop is Pop Up Birthday Gift Card made with the Stampin' Up! Zoo Babies and Banner Greetings Hostess stamp sets and featuring Designer Series Paper from Birthday Basics.  How bright and fun does this card look?  This card design can be suited to a boy or girl across many age groups.

When you open the Birthday Card, you're presented (no pun intended) with a nice surprise - pop up birthday presents with a bow on top.

The idea came from DOstamping with Dawn.

Building a vertical stack of animals is a clever way to show case the different Zoo Babies images on one card.  I've used stamp pads that coordinates with the Birthday Basics DSP.
The 'happy birthday' banner includes 3 Bermuda Bay Candy Dots and has been raised with dimensionals.

I'm giving away a Birthday Basic DSP Sampler Pack including all the goodies in the photo immediately below, including 7 x A5 sheets of cardstock, 6 x 6"x6" Birthday Basic DSP and 50cm each of Bermuda Bay 1/8” Taffeta Ribbon, Basic Gray 5/8” Satin Ribbon, Raspberry Ripple 3/8” Satin Stitched Ribbon, Gumball Green 3/8” Satin Stitched Ribbon, Summer Starfruit 3/8” Satin Stitched Ribbon and Crisp Cantaloupe 3/8” Stretched Ruffle Trim.

To enter, please leave me a comment at the end of this post with the name of your favourite Stamp set. The deadline for comments is the 7th November midnight. I'll choose and announce a random winner from the comments on the 8th November. The winner must have a Australian address and needs to contact me within 24 hours of my announcement.
