Paper Crafting Blog Hop - March



Welcome to March's 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 of "Happy Birthday" 

You may have just visited Sandy'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 some cards that I made recently for some of my customers for their birthday's.  




I was rather cheeky as  I created them whilst they where busy making their cards at my all day Bloom by Bloom workshop.

Firstly I stamped the largest circles from the Swirly Frames stamp set before cutting out a circle and stamping the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set.




I then punched a selection of different flowers using the new Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack from card stock.  I chose card stock from the Brights  family as this really made them pop the card.




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





All the supplies used may be ordered through 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. 

Happy Stampin'

Colour Combo Blog Hop - March

Welcome to March's Colour Combo Blog Hop



You may have just visited Rene'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.

My card was made last minute.com as I had totally forgotten that I had signed up for this months hop, and I didn't want to let anyone down - so I grabbed the Daisy Delight stamp set - one of the stamp sets that I'm using at my retreat in a couple of weeks and created this card - so two jobs done in one!! 

Firstly used my Pool Party re inker and washed the background on watercolour paper - unfortunately the photograph doesn't pick that up. That will teach me to leave everything too the last minute. 

I then stamped the stems using Shaded Spruce - to get the lighter shade I stamped off first. Then I added the buds and hand cut flowers in Flirty Flamingo.  To embellish the card I used the Flirty Flamingo ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack and a Faceted Gem, I've also added a Wink of Stella to the flower heads.


Stampin' Up!

Kre8tors Blog Hop - Bye Bye SAB



Welcome to the March'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 Melissa'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 is Bye, Bye Sale a Bration - wow some many good choices this year the best yet!!  and with the addition of the extra items from the Annual too. I'm saying Bye, Bye Especially to the Foil papers I so love the colours.



Here I've teamed them up with the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies and the Geared Up Garage stamp set  which form up some of the items in the Classic Garage Suite.

The Lovely Lipstick foil is most definitely feminine where as the Grapefruit Grove could be used for masculine cards.  



I'm not sure if your believe me but I created the scrapbook layout I'm sharing today back before extra items where added from the Annual Catlogue!!

Having cut a couple of floral sections from one of the sheets in the  Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper- this was to highlight the detail in the back of Amy's wedding dress. I added a matte layer using the Grapefruit Grove Foil as her colours were Orange and Gold and also added some centre's to the flowers in the DSP by using the pop outs from the Garage Gears thinlits Dies. 




I hope you like the items I've made for this months theme - supplies used to create them can be ordered via my Online store here

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 - and don't forget you can purchase items to co ordinate with some of  this years Sale a bration items. 

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

Ink & Share Scrapbook Hop - New Papers


Welcome to February's Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop. 

The theme chosen for this month's theme is "New Papers" which meant we could create any layouts using any of the New Designer Series Papers which can be found in the New spring/summer catalogues or any of the papers from this years Sale a Bration offerings too.






You may have joined me from Jo'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 my layout I have chosen to share with you one of the layouts I created for this hop and also taught at my scrapbook class this month using the All My Love Designer Series Paper from the All My Love Suite. 



I decided that I would challenge them to incorporate some stitching on their page - and they all accepted the challenge and where really happy at using the sewing machine. 

So after cutting and sticking 2 strips of All My Love DSP they stictched on a length of the All My Love Ribbon.





Then using the the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies cut out three different Hearts, a cluster of hearts and the long stitched edging (which is popped just behind the ribbon)



To finish the layout I added some Heart Epoxy Droplets coloured using my Stampin' Blends and fussy cut the sentiment stamped from the Forever Lovely set. 

I haven't yet put a photo on the layout as it's ready for one of my new arrivals due in May and June.

I hope you like my layout using this months theme - supplies used to create this layout 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. 


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

Ink.Stamp.Share - Blog Hop



Welcome to  back to Ink Stamp Share's February 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 Sale A Bration.










I'm also combining my hop  card with a Sketch Challenge that can be found over at the Paper Craft Crew Challenge page here with PCC327 






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.

My card uses a stamp set from the 1st release of Sale a Bration items - Lovely Lattice and the Designer Series Paper from The Painted Seasons Bundle from the second release of items.





Firstly I stamped the flowers out from the Lovely Lattice stamp set, coloured them in using the Pool Party, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight  Stampin' Blends before fussy cutting them out. 



As I couldn't decide which contrasting colour I wanted Coastal Cabana or Bermuda Bay I decided  I would make one up in both of the colours and I still can't deiced which one I like best - perhaps you can tell me your favourite one, in the comments below.


I've stamped the sentiment from Humming Along on my Bermuda Bay card and left the other one blank for any occasion card. 

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. and 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.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop - February



Welcome to February's 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 of SALE A BRATION

You may have just visited Sandy'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 one of my WOW cards from my all day workshop this month, showcasing the New Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder just one of the 2nd release Sale A Bration items along with the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and items from the Butterfly Gala Suite.


My ladies had asked me to revisit and refresh their memories of how to create a "card in a box" so I thought I'd make them a butterfly garden and at the same time showcase all the different ways that the butterflies from the butterfly gala stamp set could be coloured - sponging, rock n roll technique, Stampin' Blends, Stampin' Write Markers, water coloured or just punched from  cardstock or from the Botanical DSP from the first Sale a Bration release.  




The best thing is this card folds flat and goes in an ordinary sized envelope.

This card was a win win with my ladies.








I do hope you like the card I've made for this months hop. 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.

Sketch Challenge PCC326



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.

Happy Craftin'

Colour Combo Blog Hop - February


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 - 
Lovely Lattice.

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
