Paper Crafting Blog Hop - September


Welcome to September's  Paper Crafting blog hop with the lovely ladies from the Paper Crafting Blog Hop group.

Fellow demonstrators and myself from all over the globe are participating so we're sure to have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! using this months theme " Punches"


You may have just visited Sandra's blog or perhaps you are starting your journey here with me. I hope you like our creations and that they give you inspiration.



For me I am sharing with you 2 card samples I have made for my upcoming very first online class " Zany Zebras" which uses the

            "Balloon Bouquet Punch" 




As DL/slimeline cards are all the rage at the moment especially in the USA I made my design with that in mind. Using the Brights colour family I punched out the larger balloon in all 10 colours and played around with them in 2 lots of 5 until I was happy with the 2 colour combinations.  


I then cut out to sets of the word "HAPPY" from the Playful Alphabet Dies and "Birthday" from the Well Written Die set in Silver Foil and adhered these to the balloons and card base.  Using my basic black Stampin' Write Marker I drew some balloon strings before stamping up one of the Zany Zebras and adhering it to the card base as well.






I do hope you like the card that I've shared with you for this months hop. Don't forget to leave me a comment below, before you continue hoping on over to see what Sandy has created using this months theme.

Colour Combo Blog Hop - September


Welcome to  September's Colour Combo Blog Hop, using the colours shown above -  Granny Apple Green, Flirty Flamingo and Night of Navy. 


You may have just visited Elisabeth's blog or perhaps you are starting your journey here with me. I hope you like our creations and that they give you inspiration with this months colours.

For this month's hop I thought I'd use the Lovely You stamps set which coordinates with the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch which are available as a bundle saving you an extra 10% 

For this first card I placed the senitment at an angle before I stamped all over the card with the images and added a length of ribbon before adhering the card altogether.

For the other cards a created a one sheet wonder using a piece of A4 whisper white.  I double matted some on Flirty Flamingo card stock before adhering them to a Night of Navy card base.



I used the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch to created the labels for the sentiments, Sharing with you both the different ends you can make with this punch.

Ink.Stamp.Share - Special Blog Hop

 



Welcome to the Ink. Stamp. Share Special Blog Hop..... the theme for this Special Hop is 
"ANYTHING GOES"  

The projects are designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators from around the world.

You may have joined me from Jo's blog or perhaps you are starting your journey here with me. I hope you like our creations and that they give you inspiration.


I'm sharing with you Scrapbook layout that I made last weekend using two pieces of Designer Series Paper from the World of Good Specialty Papers. 




Firstly I coloured some white acrylic paint with my Early Espresso reinker and painted the clock face, setting this aside I cut out circles for the the Designer series paper and some Very Vanilla card stock. Once the clock face had dried I adhered them all together leaving a little gap for some hidden journalling made using the Scalloped Tag Topper punch and Bakers Twine.



I'm sure my daughter will be please with this layout as it's the first time her youngest Ezana went out walking without the buggy, and Eli was so proud being the Big Brother.

Paper Craft Crew Challenge #391

 I'm back today with a card I made for this weeks Paper Craft Crew Challenge #391



This week's challenge is totally different you get to choose who's card you'd like to from the Design Team.

For my card I wanted to play with one of Stampin' Up!s new Christmas Stamps 

Don't Stop Believin' 

I  just love the Elf image. So I created a double z-fold card.




I coloured the image using a variety of Stampin' Blends and added some Wink of Stella but unfortunately my photograph hasn't picked this up. 

Love the saying that goes with this image too.... I always get tangled when putting up my lights!!



Why not join in the fun with this weeks Paper Craft Crew Challenge?? you could end up casing all the design team members this week!!

Check out the rest of the Design Team’s creative inspirations back at the Paper Craft Crew Challenge page and play along this week by submitting your own handmade creation HERE

Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop - Travel





Welcome to August's Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog hop this month months theme is

                    TRAVEL




You may have joined me from Dana's blog or perhaps you are starting you journey here with me, I hope that you like our creations and the they give you inspiration as you hop around the world. 


For me when I first saw this month's theme, I knew exactly what photo's I wanted to scrap.  It was of my daughter when we went out for a drive at the beginning of "Lockdown" dropping of shopping for my uncle who was shielding. 



Firstly I cut out a selection of cogs using the silver foil sheets and distress some of them with black ink, before inking the edges of my 12x12 Sea Spray base and randomly second generation stamping the ink splodges from the Geared Up Garage stamp set.  I adhered some of these with Stampin' Dimensionals to give some depth. 


 

To remind of us of why and when this photograph was taken.... I added a section for some hidden journalling. Especially as she picked up her car just before lockdown and hadn't really had chance to get out in it. As the roads where a lot quieter, it was the perfect time for her to gain some experience. 





I  hope you liked the scrapbook page I've shared with you -  supplies used  to created this, can be ordered via my Online store here

Ink.Stamp.Share Blog Hop - August




Welcome to August's  Ink. Stamp. Share Blog Hop. The  projects are designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators from around the world. The theme for this month's blog hop is 

 "Mini- Catalogue"

You may have joined me from Jo's blog or perhaps you are starting your journey here with me. I hope you like our creations and that they give you inspiration. 

For this month's hop I had lots of new items to choose from I was spoilt for choice. I chose in the end to use the Have A Hoot stamp set and coordintating dies - Peek A Hoot.  

As this stamp set covers both Christmas and Halloween, I decided on making a project for the later.

I knew I had some of the Coffin Treat Boxes left over from last year (and they are currently on the Clearance Rack £2.60 for 12) so I grabbed them and ran the lid through the big shot with one of the Wrapped in Texture embossing folders.



Having stamped the image of the owl hiding behind the pumpkin, I t
hen coloured it using my Stampin' Blends before cutting it out with one of the Peek A Hoot Dies. To finish it off I added a little bit of sparkle by using the  Glittered Organdy Ribbon.  




It felt lonely so I also made a quick card using Stampin' Ups Notecards, I love this size just a tad smaller than the standard A6. 





I love it when Stampin' Up bring out a new stamp set with coordinating dies or a punch as they usually offer them at a discount.. 


I  hope you like the projects that I've shared with you - all supplies used  to created this can be ordered via my Online store here
