CAKE SOIREE - STAMP TO SHARE BLOG HOP


Welcome to the Stamp to Share International Design Team blog hop for February as we feature the Cake Soiree Suit and Bundle!  You may have just joined me from Nadine Koller's blog or are starting the hop with me.  Just be sure to click the "next" button at the end of the post to carry on around the team.

I have two projects to share with you today.  I couldn't just stop at one!  The first is this super pretty, very glittery birthday card.  Can I just say how much I love the Shimmery White embossing paste?  I love that it can be coloured slightly as I have done here.  My birthday cake has been slightly altered also as the original stamp has only two layers to it.  And that gorgeous shimmery ribbon?  It is one part of a three part ribbon pack this Sale-a-bration and can be yours free when you spend $110NZD with me.






This sweet little tag is the perfect way to zhoosh up a little gift.  I adore the filigreed edge of the tag die in this set and made a feature of it by cutting silver foil to lay over the white tag base.



So much goodness to be featured using this gorgeous bundle and suite.  Next on stop on the hop is my good friend Rochelle Blok.

ALL THINGS THANKS - THE CRAFTY CARROT CO. BLOG HOP

I have the absolute pleasure of Guest Designing for the fabulous gals over at the Crafty Carrot Collective. These four, very clever ladies, are either current Stampin' Up! Artisans, or have been in the past.  They have created an online, interactive crafting program, designed to help you get the most out of your Stampin' Up! purchases. Let me introduce you:


From left to right is Cindy from the US, Krista from Canada, Jennifer from Australia and our very own Susan from New Zealand.  And here I am for my guest spot in March!



My project for this hop features the All Things Thanks stamp set along with the Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes, a Sale-a-bration option you can choose for free when you subscribe to the Crafty Carrot Collective March program.  




I have added a layer of the Tutti-Frutti DSP to my card front and picked the colours from that to use on the rest of my card.  The DSP has a subtle fleck through it and I "borrowed" a favourite technique from Krista, flicking my marker against it's lid, to add the same flecked look to the inside of my card and front of my envelope.  I fussy cut some of the fruit from the DSP to add as embellishments to my card sentiment and envelope front.  While the envelopes come with a printed inner, I used the same DSP to reline the envelope and tie my project all together!
