CASE THE OCCASIONS CATTY! - FANCY FRIDAY BLOG HOP

Welcome to the Fancy Friday blog hop!  We are a group of past and present Artisans who loved working together so much, we just can't stop!  Each month we bring you inspiration in the form of themes, and this month, it is CASEing the Occasions Catalogue.

I decided on the Petal Palette suite of products and a mash up of some of the projects from page 22 of the catalogue.  It's a pretty busy card for me, but I am happy with how it turned out.  This suite has become a favourite of mine and thankfully, it will be around for at least another year!



I even used some vellum as an embellishment!  Hope you were sitting down then.  CASEing (Copy And Selectively Edit) is a great way of trying new things and adding to your card making repertoire!


Next up on the hop is my amazingly talented friend, Krista.

STAMPARATUS BLOG HOP


Welcome to the Stamparatus International Blog Hop!  We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world who have come together to inspire you with Stampin' Up!'s fabulous new stamp placement system - the Stamparatus!


I love that I am now able to place my stamps exactly where I want them on my project.  Not only does the Stamparatus make lining up images in two and three step stamp sets so easy, it also allows for so many fabulous techniques.  I am stamping a rainbow with just one stamp!  I can be certain, that no matter how many times I stamp this image, it will be in the same place EVERY single time!


Rather than tell you how I created this, I will show you!  I have created a video for your viewing pleasure.  Be gentle, I am still finding my feet with this videoing lark!


The Stamparatus will be available for purchase on June 1st!  This amazing tool is a "must have", in my humble opinion, and has changed the way I stamp for the better.  If you live in New Zealand, you can order from my Online Store your very own Stamparatus come June 1st!

I have showed you just one way to use the Stamparatus, but there are nineteen more reasons to visit each designer in this hop!  Next up to "wow" you is the delightful Rachel Tessman.

SHARING WHAT I LOVE!

It has been a loooong time since I played at Global Design Project.  This fabulous challenge site will always have a place in my heart, after serving as one of it's designers for over a year, and I am still friends with many of it's members today!  I am playing along this week with GDP134.


I love the sketch the team has put up for us to play with this week, little realising that it would come to my rescue when I had to make an unexpected sympathy card.  I also had lots of new product to play with too, so here is a little sneak peek for y'all.



So I have used new stamp sets, new Designer Paper, new embellishments and I may have also used some returning colours to the Stampin' Up! range.  Can you guess what they are?  Actually, you don't need to guess because I have listed them below for you and you can get your hands on everything in June! Unless you want them in May?  Consider joining my team if you want them early!
