Stamp 'N Hop - November



Welcome back to another blog hop with this creative group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world.                                                                                                                       


This month's theme is - Case the Annual Catalogue, there where so many lovely projects to choose from. 


You may have just visited Linda's blog or perhaps you are starting your journey here with me. 

I choose to case one of the cards on page 119  using the Petal Palette stamp set and coordinating dies  Petals & More. 

I've changed some of the colours used in the catalogue the card base from Pool Party  to Balmy Blue, Old Olive to Granny Apple Green and Calypso Coral to Poppy Parade - to give my own twist on the project. 





I hope you like our creations and that they give you inspiration to case projects and

Colour Combo Blog Hop - November

Welcome to November's Colour Combo Blog Hop. 


You may have just visited 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 with this months colours.



I chose an old favorite stamp set of mine - well it was one of the first stamps I bought nearly 10 years ago and is still in the Annual Catalog.


I've stamped the image in Basic grey on  crumb cake card stock and again several times on Very Vanilla.








I then decided which features of the tress I would like to make panels with and mounted them on to Soft Suede card stock.  Here's a closer look at the panel sections.

Celebrate


There are a few of us out there in the Stampin’ Up! World that do not have an upline…. Not through our own fault, it just means the person we signed up under has left – usually you would be passed on to their upline but in our cases they’ve left too.

We have group on Facebook and actively support each other and host a blog hop once a month… it’s a great family to have. As few of us where going to Onstage in Orlando we thought it would be really nice to meet up and have dinner and of course swap – it just had to be done.

I chose to make a card using Celebrate as the theme seeing as Stampin' Up! are celebrating their 30th




Be sure to pop back later to see the cards that I receive in return for these swaps.

Mean while happy Stampin'

Time for tea............


Time for Tea
                                         
Knowing that I was going to Onstage in Orlando, in the back of my mind I knew which stamp set I wanted to use to make my general swaps with and that I’d like to share a little bit of an English Tradition of tea drinking. I set about designing my swaps.


I came up with 3 different designs



This first one has a flap that tuck in behind the tea cup which some have been stamped and embossed with the copper embossing powder



This second one is a little envelope punch board which you slip the belly band off




And this third one is a fancy fold using a length of the Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper. if you'd like the measurements just contact me and I'll email it out to you

Be sure to pop back later this month when I’m back to see some of the swaps that I received in return.

Mean while happy Craftin'

Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop - Winter Holiday





Welcome to November's  Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop, the theme chosen for this month is Winter Holiday.




And it seems really strange posting this as at the moment I'm in Orlando attending Onstage for Stampin' Up!s 30th anniversary celebrations and the weather is so much different back home in the UK and that found on my scrapbook page.



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


When I first saw the theme I was a little hesitant as I didn't take many photo's last year as we were a little snowed under (excuse the pun) with my daughters wedding and then all going down with the flu, then I remembered some photo's that I had taken a while back when we had really bad snow... I found these and then started creating.




Using a mixture of Frost Shimmer paint, Brusho's and Whisper White Craft re inker, I set about making the background for my page.


I then mounted my photo's on to card stock before adding snow flakes from both the Blizzard Thinlits and Seasonal Layer Thinlits Dies.

I've used a technique and to cut my title out using the Large Letters Framelits.





I hope you like my double page spread - supplies used to create this layout can be ordered via my Online store here

Happy Scrappin'

You'd never guess where I am, just by looking at my swaps  would you??? 


If you guessed Orlando Florida, you’d be 100% correct!!





I made these using the punches shown in the picture, using black card stock and the 2018-2020 Incolor 6x6 paper stack.  The back ground one of the stamps from the Gallery Grunge stamp set.









In total I made a 100 of these to swap at an organised Swap with another 100 fellow Stampin’ Up t from around the world.

Ink.Stamp.Share Blog Hop - Tic Tac Toe Challenge



Welcome to  back to another  Ink and Share Blog Hop  Octobers blog hop which are projects 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.




This month's theme is a Tic Tac Toe Challenge - if your not sure how to play along with this the idea is you use three elements in any of the row's either horizontally, vertically or diagonally






Having had the new incolor for 2018-2020 on my work space for a scrapbook layout I was playing with for class I decided that I would like to make my card using them... I grabbed an uninked stamp set as well Abstract Impressions and started creating!!

Using the Layering Squares I created the first element of the Tic Tac Toe board. I needed to make a birthday card so that was the way my row went.  The sentiment is from the Balloon Celebration stamp set. 







For the first card I added a plain ended banner and on this second card I added a tail to it.

although I've used the same stamp sets and changed the pattern of the 6x6 Paperstack and the color of the ribbon Ican't quite make my mind up as to which one I prefer





I  hope you've liked what I've shared with you - all supplies used  to created these cards can be ordered via my Online store here



Don't forget to leave me a comment below, before you continue hoping around to see everyone's creations Janey's next and in case the chain breaks I've posted a roll call below

Paper Crafting Blog Hop -





I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring projects that are "Fall" themed

Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! 




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.



Whilst driving home from work I was admiring all the lovely colours I saw of the different trees and wondered how I could recreate them - I know I could have used the Baby Wipe technique with re inkers but I haven't got the colours I wanted then I remember an old technique using the Stampin' Write Markers and a Spritzer bottle.






So I grabbed an old favourite stamp set - Lovely as a Tree, Stampin' Write Markers, Spritz bottle and started creating.............



I'm not sure if you can see it in the photograph but I've added some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint to the edges of the distressed card base and the leaves on the tree image.  Hubby walked in from work and said  that really looks really nice ------ he doesn't often spontaneously comment on my cards was well chuffed. 


Don't forget to leave me a comment below, before you continue hoping on over to see what Anastasia has created for this months theme.

Kre8tors Blog Hop - Autumn Color Challenge





Thanks for joining me again for October'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.   




                                                                                                        This months we were set a colour challenge - using the photo as inspiration and to use a minimum of 3 of the 5 colours  chosen - Granny Apple Green, Grey Granite, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Soft Suede.



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.



I chose to use an old favorite stamp set that needed some TLC - Sheltering Tree 

having stamped the tree trunk in Soft Suede ink on Very Vanilla card stock and die cutting it out using the Stitched Oval shape, I set about adding some autumn leaves. 

To create the leaves on the tree's I used the baby wipe technique - using the Real Red and Pumpkin Pie Re-Inkers . 

To complete the card I die cut 3 of the smaller maple leaves from the Seasonal Layers framelits.







As I had lots of ink still left on my baby wipe I decorated the insert .










I hope you like my card for this Theme  - *supplies used to create this card can be ordered via my Online store here

has  created for this Color Challenge.
