Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Jenny Hall - Best Birds

Hi Crafters!

Some exciting news for you today! We are CASE-ing (Copy & Selectively Edit) the lovely JENNY HALL, who is also joining us on this hop! Exciting! I've known Jenny for a while now & she is the most lovely person, amazing artist & mum to two of the cutest boys ever! I really hope you enjoy this blog hop looking at & casing all of her amazing work!

Jenny has made a few really amazing cards with the Best Birds Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! And I really love that stamp set, too, so I've decided to use it today. Here is one of my favourite cards from Jenny, using the Best Birds stamp set.

And here is my version of the card using the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack for the patterned background in Tranquil Tide.

Instead of Gold Heat Embossing I've incorporated the gold using Glimmer Paper (die cut with the Layering Oval Framelits) & the Metallic Edge Ribbon. I have used Soft Sky for the front oval, die cut with the  Stitched Shapes Framelits.

I've added a layer of Tranquil Tide & stamped the thatched pattern with Tranquil Tide ink so that it just pops out the sides of the ovals. I've also used Tranquil Tide for the sentiment & then Soft Sky for the leaf/branch image. I love a bit of tone on tone stamping for a really soft look. All the images & sentiments are from the Best Birds stamp set. The ovals are propped up on Dimensionals.

 I've used one of the bird images to stamp the front of the envelope.

And I've stamped the inside to match.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today & that you can hop around the crew & leave a little blog love along the way! Thank you for hopping with us, Jenny!

  1. Wonderful to see how a design evolves in your eyes, Jessie. The branch works so well with the sentiment the way you have it featured. Truly beautiful card! Thanks so much for hopping with me :-)

  3. Oh I love this stamp set, it's my go to for the greetings for sure. Great card Jessie

  4. Gorgeous card Jessie. I really love the Tranquil Tide, Soft Sky and Gold combo.

  5. Hey, Jesse, Your card is very Elegant. The Gold and the Green always look so lush together. I particularly like how you placed the bird inside the card a very bold move and it paid off so well. I know I got a pleasant surprise, so whoever is the recipient is for this card they will truly love it.
