Crazy Crafters January Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for the Crazy Crafters Black & White Blog Hop. We hope you enjoy our virtual hop where you will learn great techniques for your paper crafting projects.

You should have just left stop number 2 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 The Postage Stamp Collection made with the Stampin' Up! Postage Collection (Hostess) and Clearly for You (retired) stamp sets.  The Card Design features 16 postage punchies with little bordered images stamped in Basic Black.  The size of the Card is 6" x 6" and includes 2 layers of Whisper White cardstock.

To add dimension to the Card Design, I have raised every 2nd postage stamp with Dimensionals.

Don't forget to decorate the inside of your card when dark coloured cardstock is used as the card base.  I have added a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" square of whisper white cardstock and a little strip of black patterned paper from the Neutrals Colour Collection Designer Series Paper Stack and a strip of Pinking Hearts Border Punch (retired). 

To co-ordinate with the card, I have made a 6" x 6" envelope out of the same DSP using the Envelope Punch Board. This was the first time I made an envelope out of the Envelope Punch Board and it was so easy to do.  Finish the envelope with a mailing label in Whisper White with a Basic Black matt and include a couple of little stamped images for a nice touch.
