Kre8tors Blog Hop January


Welcome to the first Kre8tors Blog Hop of 2022.  


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  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.

This months theme was "Free for All" 

As I had the Hello Ladybug stamp set on my desk for an upcoming class I thought I would play with that set.  I had seen a 3D project over on you tube using the set so tried my hand at that.. I am so glad I did, thank you Kajta for inspiring me.

Using one of the papers from the  Pansy Patch collection, I set out to make my box using the incolours - Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen. I also stamped out a large leaf in Soft Succulent and cut this by hand along with the little ladybug. The dots are a lot easier than I imagined to line up.



When I created the 3D Ladybug using the coordinating punch (purchasing the 2 together saves you an extra 10%) I used
 Stampin' Up!s Black Dimensional's to adhere the wings to the body - being black they won't stand out ...they're great for darker projects.




The sentiment "thanks" comes from one of the Sale - A - Bration offerings for spending £90, using the Banners Pick a Punch I  added one of the sentiments from the Hello Ladybug set. I can see myself making a few more of these for my friends.......


I hope you like the project  I have shared with you using this month's theme - supplies used to create it can be ordered via my Online store here. Don't forget to use this months hostess code which can be found in the side bar, if your order is under £150 to receive a little something from me.

Ink Stamp Share - Showcase Hop January


Welcome to the first Ink. Stamp. Share Showcase Blog Hop of 2022 .....the purpose of this hop is to show you what we have all been working on during the month. 
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 a card I made for an upcoming class using the Happy Hedgehog Stamp set, this also comes with a coordinating punch so you can purchase this as a bundle saving you an extra 10%.

One reason I chose to purchase this set, was my mum liked hedgehogs so I bought it in her memory... 

Firstly using my green Blending Brushes I inked the grass in Old Olive, before stamping the bushes in Memento ink and colouring them in Stampin' Blends - Flirty Flamingo, Soft Suede, and Old Olive.



I then stamped the "Fungi" and Hedgehog on a scrap of Basic white, again colouring them with Stampin' Blends - Crumb Cake and Poppy Parade before fussy cutting them out. 


The other Hedgehog in the stamp set is the one that coordinates with the punch, which I will share with you after the class has taken place... I just wanted to show you a card without using the punch as I think this fellow is really cute too.


The Stampin' Up! supplies used to create this card can be ordered via my Online store here.  Don't forget to use this month's hostess code which can be found in the side bar, to receive a little something from me if your order is under £150. 

And remember its also SALE A BRATION, so for every £45 you spend you'll get to choose a FREE item,  the link to this years offerings can be found in the side bar too. So if you choose the bundle at £30.50 and 2 packs of Stampin' Blends you'll qualify for a Free item..

Ink.Stamp.Share Showcase Blog Hop- December

 


Welcome to the Ink. Stamp. Share Showcase Blog Hop .....the purpose of this hop is to show you what we have all been working on during the month. 

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

You may have joined me from  Angie'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 my showcase project I'm going to share with you is a project I made for my Christmas Retreat.

Having purchased so Glass Coasters we set about decorating them using a variety of stamp sets... the two shown here use Peaceful Cabin and  Arctic Bear stamp sets which both have co-ordinating dies and sadly these are all on the Last Chance list - so if you really like them then I would get them before you regret it.


Firstly we stamped the main image on to the reverse of the glass coaster using stazon on ink (remember that the image would be reversed so if using sentiments or alphabets be very careful). Once this was dried, we mixed acrylic white paint with a re inker to produce the colour we wanted and then sponged this onto the coaster.

One tip we did learn that you have to wait between layers/different colours to dry before adding another layer.


I photographed them both on a piece of white card stock and a piece of black and I'm not sure which one I prefer - the darker because it looks more like a winter snow storm or the white as its a little more gentle which do you prefer??

The Stampin' Up! supplies used to create this card can be ordered via my Online store here.  Don't forget to use this month's hostess code which can be found in the side bar, to receive a little something from me if your order is under £150.

Ink & Share Blog Hop - Happy Holidays



Welcome to November's Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog 


This month's theme is 



You may have joined me from Alison'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. 


As I had lost my Scrapbookin' MOJO recently I decided that I would case a layout that I had seen out there in blog land - sorry I can't remember who it was.



The layout uses some of the elements from the Christmas Whimsy Card Kit which is available whilst stocks last. 

Firstly I created the back ground using the Balmy Blue Ink with a Blending brush then stamped the stars  from the Christmas Whimsy Card Kit, in Night of Navy ink. 


I then tore another sheet of Basic White to make the hills of snow. Using a retired die I cut out some trees in the Evergreen Elegance card stock, I adhered these and the "elements" from the Christmas Whimsy Card kit using Stampin' Dimensionals. 



The Stampin' Up! supplies used to create this layout can be ordered via my Online store here.Be sure to use this months hostess code, which can be found in the side bar to receive a little something for me if your order is under £150.

Please remember to leave me a comment below, before you continue hoping on over to see what Sharon  has created using this months theme.

Ink.Stamp.Share Blog Hop - Tree Decoration

 


Welcome to the Ink. Stamp. Share Monthly Blog Hop .....this months theme is to

"Make a decoration, something you can hang from the Christmas Tree"

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

You may have joined me from Angie'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 my decoration I choose to stamp onto a wooden slice using the Peaceful Cabin Stamp set from the July - December Mini Catalog. I was a bit hesitant to begin with using inks in this way and my first attempt was a bit wonky when I hung it up I forgot to center the hole at the top but to the side.


Here is my second attempt  and I love how it turned out, the inks I used were - Early Espresso, Old Olive, Smoky Slate, Coastal Cabana.  Although the Cabin set has trees in it they where a little big so I used one from the Evergreen Elegance Stamp set. 


For the sentiment I used a Stampin' write Marker on a retired stamp. To make the snow appear to glisten I painted it carefully with Wink of Stella. And to hang it on the tree I used a piece of Real Red Double Satin Ribbon. 


As I was so pleased at how it turned out, I'm using it as a project at my Christmas workshop this weekend. 

The Stampin' Up! supplies used to create this card can be ordered via my Online store here.  Don't forget to use this month's hostess code which can be found in the side bar, to receive a little something from me, if you order is under £150.
