Crazy Crafters Blog Hop, I’m Honored



It’s such an honor to be hopping with the Crazy Crafters Team.  My friend Kylie who lives in Australia has a fabulous team of demonstrators.  They chose me this week to be their inspiration station for their designs.

Their job was to go to my blog and CASE (copy and share everything) that I have created.

How fun!

Today I create a very different card than my usual style.  I paired the Floral Phrases with Christmas Pines to create a really cool and unique wedding card.

My cousin-in-law Amanda is getting married this weekend in the redwoods in Santa Cruz.  She’s having a very bohemian outdoor magical forest type of wedding.

I knew right away I would like to use pine cones and pine needles to create her card.

I used crumb cake card stock as my base, lots of copper embossing powder and old olive green and always artichoke for my pine needles.

I also created a custom envelope for the card.  Hope you like it!

What’s your best marriage advice for a new couple!?  I would love to know.

Make sure you continue hopping and see all the cards created based off my creations.  I am so excited to see all the fabulous stuff that is created.

  1. What an amazing card Wendy, I love the copper embossing around the edge too. Perfect for the couple who love the bush or wilderness.
    As for marriage advice hmmm well ‘ACTIVELY listen to your partner’ is all I can recommend 🙂
    Have fun at the wedding today & thank you for sharing all of your creatons…I love them all!

  2. Thank you so much for hopping with us Wendy! It’s been so much fun casing you! I absolutely love this wedding card you’ve made & especially the rough copper embossing around the edges xx

  3. Hello, Wendy, Thank you so much for blogging with us today we have been looking so forward to it, and panic stations were on just moments before we all went live but everything for my blog was okay in the end Phew.
    I like your different style Wedding Card, it is a great design for the theme of the Wedding. I know that the Bride and Groom will be extremely happy with your choice of the card as with Handmade Cards it is the thought of how you are to make it and there is also the love we put into the card too.
    I hope you have a wonderful day celebrating the first day of the rest of the Happy Couples new lives together.
    I love going to Weddings as it brings back all those beautiful memories I have of my own Wedding Day so many years ago.

    I have been married 29 years on 28 November 2016, to my darling husband Ray. We were courting for 5 years before Ray got down on one knee and proposed to me, we were then Engaged a further 22 months before we Wed. So yes we were married on the 7-year itch.

    My advice to the Happy Couple is.
    NEVER go to bed angry.
    Always Greet each other with a Hello and a Goodbye as you never know what the day has in store for you. ( this is the Vows in Bad Times)
    Tell each other your feelings – don’t say I’m Fine, or It’s okay when it clearly it is not. The other partner is not a mind-reader.
    Best Wishes Christine xxx

  4. What a gorgeous card for a bohemian wedding Wendy! I adore that stamp set and matching dies. And I love that you’ve used Always Artichoke (it’s such a beautiful green and often overlooked). Thanks so much for hopping with the Crazy Crafters today! xo

  5. Thank you so much for hopping with us Wendy, I love your card, the copper embossing on the Pine cones especially.

    My husband and I never leave the house for work without giving each other a kiss or a hug – I proposed to my now hubby, there is such a story there lol!

  6. LOVE your card Wendy, you have such a great style and vision. This card so unique and refreshing for a wedding theme. It’s such an honor to case your gorgeous works and Thank you so much for hopping with us. 🙂

  7. Hi Wendy! Thank you so much for hopping with us today, we are the honoured ones! Your creations are so bright, fun and happy so it was awesome to case one- that was the hard part choosing just one! Love this creation – I’m yet to crack open the dies for this set looking forward to that 🙂 xx
    Advice – we have 2: Always remember your wedding vowels – that promise you made to ‘love/protect, sickness/health, richer/poorer, good times/bad’, The other my husband and I have always stuck by ‘work as a team’ we may not always agree on everything but we have the same goals and when we work together getting there is so much more rewarding. xox

  8. Hi Wendy, I really like how you’ve created a wedding Card to match the theme and feel of the wedding and also the colour scheme. Your card creations are all fabulous and it was hard to choose just one to CASE! Thanks for hopping with us today! It’s been so much fun! ☺☺☺☺

  9. Wendy, thank you so much for giving us this great opportunity to case your projects. I had a hard time to pick one to case. Your use of the Christmas set for wedding card is fantastic idea and it showcases how versatile this set is very well. Thank you for the great inspiration.

  10. The card and envelope are fantastic, Wendy! My wedding advice is the same that I received over 44 years ago. Never go to bed angry at each other.
