PEACEFUL NOEL - STAMP TO SHARE BLOG HOP


Welcome back to the Stamp to Share Blog Hop.  We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world who love to come together to create awesome projects with the fabulous bundles of product featured in our current catalogues, and inspire you to do the same!


This month we feature the beautiful Peaceful Noel Bundle from the 2018 Holiday catalogue, which went live just a week ago!  This two step stamp set gives so many options for your projects, from lovely watercolour-like images, line art images you can colour, a great mix of sentiments and DIY wreath stamps!  And for you punch lovers out there, the Sprig punch!


It turns out my project was a little difficult to photograph!  I really wish you could see it in person, as it has a beautiful shimmer to the whole card front.  I have used Champagne Foil Sheets as mats and to punch some sprigs from, so there is the lovely soft shine from that as well.


I think it is elegantly rustic with the Buffalo Check and gorgeous Braided Linen Trim.  The Buffalo Check was first stamped in Gray Granite ink, moved just a fraction and then stamped again with Frost White Shimmer Paint.  I used my Stamparatus to do that.  I then finished the whole card off with the beautiful Frosted Epoxy Droplets.


Next up on the hop is my friend, the wonderfully talented Rochelle Blok in Australia!

LOVE YOU TO PIECES - FANCY FRIDAY BLOG HOP

Welcome to this month's Fancy Friday Blog Hop!  If you have never hopped with us before, welcome!  We are a group of past and present Artisan Design Team demonstrators from Stampin' Up! who just love to share and inspire you.

We have a great hop this month based around Stampin' Up! bundles.  Bundles are a stamp set and die/or punch combination designed to go hand in hand and make life just a touch easier for you.  There is also a great discount when you purchase current Bundles in our catalogues!  Who doesn't love a bargain?


My bundle is called Love You To Pieces. The idea of being able to create my own little jigsaws, whether on cards or other projects, made this bundle irresistible to me!  I have a lot of memory keeping to catch up on as my daughter is in South America on her second OE at the moment, so I knew I wanted to create a scrapbook page of her travels.



I threw everything at this page!  Watercolour, resist, splatter, crinkled paper, faux stitching and then I added a photo jigsaw!  I am not a natural memory keeper.  Creating pages such as this is a struggle for me, but I love how this page turned out and I can't wait to show my daughter when she gets home.


Next up on the hop is my lovely friend Sylwia, whom I know has a "darling" project for us!

A TRIO OF PALS IS BETTER THAN JUST ONE!

Have you seen the adorable Postcard Pals stamp set on page 49 of the 2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue?  This set is perfect for those who love colouring super cute critters (me!) and has a great assortment of sentiments for the outside and inside of your card creations.


This set is so stinkin' cute that I couldn't stop at just one card!  I had brand new Blends to try out too and made each card in a different colour and with a different treatment on each base card.


This card features the Poppy Parade Blends on the same colour card base.  I kept this base plain and simple, but coloured the pearls with an Old Olive Blends Marker!


Call Me Clover was the colour of choice for this wee cutie and a little tone on tone stamping was done on the card base.


I just love the new Highland Heather colour on this card!  I embossed the card base with the Maps ETC 3D Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder.  I thought that was a perfect choice considering the postie will probably use a map to deliver the letter being held!
