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.



All the supplies used may be ordered through my online store here

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.

I'm sharing with you one of the projects that I made with my customers at my Christmas in July all day class. 

We wore Christmas Jumpers and played Christmas music to get us in the spirit the only thing I ran out of time to do was bake some Mince Pies!! 




We used the Christmas papers from the Annual Catalogue  Under the Mistletoe to make a variety of packaging for Christmas Presents as well as cards using the co ordinating stamp set - Mistletoe Season


This one was fun as its an Origami box........... some of the ladies even went on to make smaller ones (they enjoyed it so much)

Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop - Autumn Theme


                                                                      


Welcome to October's  
Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop, the theme chosen for this month is Fall/Autumn. 

I love the range of colours that you see whilst driving or walking in the countryside....at this time of year.
You may have joined me from  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.

Having chosen my photograph and gathering items from the Nature's Poem suite and coordinating inks I started creating. 



I decided I didn't want a clean looking page so I inked the edges until I was happy with the shading.


I then inked the edges on the Nature's Poem DSP with the same colours and then shaded it a little on the top as the paper was too "clean" looking for what I envisaged. 


Behind this I made a border using the Delicate Lace Edglits with Cajun Craze card stock.



I then double mounted my photograph, before embellishing it with leaves both stamped  using the Rooted in Nature stamp set and embossed  using the Nature's Roots Framelits and  the new Big Shot Embossing Mat. 

And to go totally over board on my four legged friend Max I added some of the Leaves Trinkets.






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

Colour Combo Blog Hop October

Welcome to October’s Colour Combo Blog Hop.  




You may have just visited Tricia'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.


having just received my latest Stampin' Up! order I thought I'd use the bundle that I bought - The Beautiful Blizzard bundle. Buying both the Beautiful Blizzard stamp set and Blizzard Thinlits Die together I saved 10% on my order as well as my demonstrator discount.*

Having first stamped the Blizzard in Petal Pink ink stamped off, before stamping some snow flakes in real red. I'm not sure if you can see but i added some swirls onto my banner. 


I just love how the Blizzard Thinlits die can be used both to cut out snow flakes but what's left can also be used to make a card too.... NO waste a win win I think


I have yet to try the Blizzard Thinlit die with the New Big Shot Embossing Mats - so be sure to pass by to see my creation using this bundle with it next Friday.





I hope you like my creations - all supplies used  to created this card can be ordered via my Online store here. Remember if you purchase any bundle you can save up to 10%
