Pootlers Autumn Blog Hop

Pootlers Autumn Blog Hop


Today is a special day, a group of my fellow Stampin' Up demonstrators have got together to form a Blog Hop, a continous link through our individual blogs to showcase a range of gorgeous products from the Seasonal Catalogue.

If you're a regular reader of my blog or if this is your first time, it is lovely to have you here. Please keep on hopping using the buttons at the end to see what everybody else has made.


I shared this set of cards and matching gift box a little while ago with you all and it went down really well, I got so much lovely feed back that I thought I'd make a similar set that would fit in the same box. If you'd like to see those cards in a bit more detail and how I made the gift box, I will add that video at the end of this post.


As regular readers will know, I am not a massively experienced crafter and I keep coming across new techniques I want to try. For these cards I decided to try out the camouflage inlayed die cut technique.

I just love the subtle results this technique gives. 


As well as the camouflage technique I also did a version with the die cut word topped in silver foil card stock and another where I just left the Whisper White top visable. 

Leave me a comment below with which you prefer and I'll pick one person at random on Monday 21st Sept to win a special spot prize. Check back on Monday to see if it you - I will post the prize world wide.



The stamp set is of course my ever favourite, Flurry of Wishes, I've stamped in Island Indigo, Pool Party, Smoky Slate and Night of Navy. 


The die cut Merry is from the Christmas Greeting's Thinlets.

As you can see, these cards coordinate brilliantly with the gift box I featured a few weeks ago - the video for the box is at the bottom of the post.


Saturday is a day I would normally share a new video, I generally publish videos on Tuesday and Friday each week but in honour of the Blog Hop and because I love this technique so much here is a sneaky video showing just how to do it. Click HERE to view if you're reading this in your email

  1. Hi Caroline, I made this box when you posted it, and I can honestly say it is a favourite of mine. As to your cards, they are all lovely, but if you are asking us to choose, I like the one with the Silver die cut. I love using the 'camouflage technique', and it is surprisingly easy to achieve and yet looks so effective. Well done on all the variations, but shiny always gets my vote! x

  8. At first I liked the white one best but then after another look I think I prefer the silver, I like the additional 'wishing you/ Christmas' parts on that one.
