It's been along time since I've taken part in any sketch challenge's so I thought I'd have a play along with the one over on The Paper Craft Crew Challenges page.
Having just unpacked the new Sale A Bration Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I was really keen to use it with this sketch, in fact it has ended up as my focal piece.
I embossed a piece of Whisper White card stock and then used my Stampin' Blends to colour the embossed flowers and leaves - the texture is so detailed it's very realistic I'm not sure the photograph does the embossing folder justice.
I embossed the Butterflies using ink and clear embossing powder on Vellum before punching them out with the Butterfly Duet Punch. The sequins are also from the Butterfly Gala Suite.
and to finish the card off I've used the lush Polka Dot ribbon.
I do hope that you like my take on the PCC326 sketch and I do look forward to playing along again real soon.

Welcome to February's Colour Combo Blog Hop
You may have just visited Pia'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 months's colour theme I chose to showcase another of this years Sale A Bration stamp sets -
Firstly I stamped up two of the large floral image one my matt layer and another of just the flowers on a piece of scrap using, the Stampin' Blends in the 3 colours of this months combo I coloured in the image. I then cut out the largest flower from the image I had stamped on to the scrap paper and layered it on to the one on the matt layer. To give the main flower some depth.
I have purposely left a sentiment off from the card so I can add it when I need too...... as I often find myself needing a card for an occasion but have no cards with that sentiment on.
I hope you like my creation- all supplies used can be ordered via my Online store here.
Remember for every £45 you spend in either the Annual or New spring.Summer catalogue you get to choose a FREE sale a bration item - watch out for the second release of items on FRIDAY 15th February

Welcome to the February's Kre8tors Blog Hop. I know that you're going to find some great inspiration from the wonderfully creative Stampin' Up! demonstrators as you follow along with us.
You may have just visited Linda's blog or perhaps you are starting your journey here with me. I hope you like our creations and that they give you inspiration.
Seeing as we're hopping in February I think you can guess the theme we were given - Valentines/Love.
I had several ideas running around in my head as I have just came across the diagonal fold card, I'm loving the Sale A Bration stamp set - So Hoppy Together and I had the stamps on my desk from the All My Love Suite - Forever Lovely as I had been preparing my Scrapbook class for later this month and came up with these creations.
The lovely thing about the diagonal fold card is you get 2 cards for the price of 1. As you can see from the photographs below the matt layers go on the opposite side of the second card.
Here my matt layers are from this years incolour 6 x 6 paperstack and a piece of Whisper White card stock stamped around the outside with the DistINKtive hearts from the Forever Lovely set in Lovely Lipstick ink.
Using Stampin' Blends I coloured in the Frog from - So Hoppy Together and 2 of the clear Heart Epoxy Droplets and placed them in the Froggies hands. I added the sentiments to the first card using the Stampin' Write Markers from 2 different stamp sets and the second one using a sentiment from Itty Bitty Greeting.
To finish the cards off completely I added some hearts to the insert and a sentiment.
Don't' forget for every £45 you spend in either the Annual or New Spring/Summer catalogue you get to choose a FREE Sale A Bration item - watch out for the second release of items on 15th February.

Welcome to Ink Stamp Share's first blog hop for 2019!!
The theme for January's blog hop is the Spring/Summer catalogue or known in other countries as the Occasions catalogue
The projects are designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators from around the world.
You may have joined me from Laura'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've chosen to share with a card I made using products from the Happiness Blooms Suite, which can be found on page 24 of the Spring/Summer catalogue.
As my husband said "they say Blue and Green should never be seen - but in this case it works"
I stamped the largest of the flower heads up in Night of Navy and the stalk and leaves in Call me Clover and fussy cut them out, before adhering them to piece of whisper white card stock I cut out using one of the square stitched framelits.
Having cut one of the sheets of DSP and punching a banner shape at one end I then made up my card.
To finish it off I added a sentiment and some of the Call me Clover Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots.
The Bloom by Bloom stamp set doesn't have any sentiments in it so I used the "Happy Birthday" one from the Amazing Life set (p28)
Don't forget to leave me a comment below, before you continue hoping around to see everyone's creations, Jacqueline's next and in case the chain breaks I've posted a roll call below

The papers that I used this layout are from the Twinkle Twinkle Designer papers, which I then folded into squares.

Wow I can't believe we're in the 3rd week of Sale A Bration - I'm having fun playing with all my new stamps and accessories from the Spring Summer Catalogue and the Sale A Bration offerings.
Today I'd like to share with you one of the cards that I've made for my
Bloom by Bloom all day workshop using products from the Happiness Blooms Suite.
Firstly I embossed my Pineapple Punch card base - It's one of my favourite colours at the moment.
I then created the tag from a sheet of the Happiness Blooms DSP using the Detailed Trio Punch. I made the smaller flowers on the printed paper 3D by using one of the punches in the Bitty Blooms Punch set and added an Enamel Dot to their centres.
My sentiment is from the Sale A Bration Part of My Story stamp set. Being an avid scrapbooker I was really pleased to see a versatile stamp set that can be used both for card making and scrapbooking.
