Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Special Guest Shannon Lane

Hi Stampin' Friends

Welcome and Thanks for joining us today for another Crazy Crafters Blog Hop. We are excited and very blessed to hop with lots of talented top international demonstrators regularly, one of the great perks of being a Crazy Crafter.  Today our special guest is none other than super talented Shannon Lane - Crush On Colour from Canada and also a member of the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team.

We are thrilled that Shannon could join us today, she is such a talented designer and has so many gorgeous cards I found it really hard to decide which card to CASE, I finally settled on this.

Its no secret I have a real thing at the moment for Irresistibly Floral Designer Series Paper, I think I may have to hide it from myself its just amazing!  Here is the card I came up with. I have taken the 1/4" Silver Natural Trim and inked it by placing it in a sandwich bag with some reinker.
(Caution this can be MESSY ... Use Gloves!).

We hope you find great inspiration from the projects you see on our hop. There is a list below of everyone taking part, grab yourself a coffee and make your way around all the fantastic projects.  We do love to know you have stopped by also so please take a moment to leave a comment.

To create this card you will need
Stylized Birthday Stamp (Woodmount 141828)
Rose Garden Thinlit Dies (140619) & Layering Circle Framelits (141705)
Irresistibly Floral Designer Series Paper (141644)
Cardstock - Island Indigo, Silver Foil, Silver Glimmer Paper & Whisper White
Ink - Island Indigo for sponging and reinker to dye ribbon
