Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop - February



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


                                                                       This month's theme is  "LOVE"                                                                  



                                                                                                            



You may have joined me from Sharon'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 NOT to use ANY Designer Series Paper and have only used stamps, coordinating dies and ink - back to basic's !! Simple Stamping



I've used 3 colours - Balmy Blue, Night of Navy and Smoky Slate, either stamped directly or second generation stamping (stamped off). And 3 stamp sets - Love You To Pieces, Geared Up Garage and Painted Popies.

The Love You To Pieces has a coordinating die set making it easier to cut out the puzzle pieces........ this is one of the layout's that I will be featuring in my scrapbook class next month.




I  hope you liked the scrapbook page I've shared with you -  supplies used  to created this, can be ordered via my Online store here and don't forget to use this months Hostess code which can be found in the side bar.

Kre8tors Blog Hop - February







Welcome to February's Kre8tors Blog.  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 Sue'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 "Love and Romance" 

For this hop I am sharing with you a card that I made for a fellow demonstrator's anniversay....... and I can safely share it now as she and her husband have received it.  



I chose soft delicate colours  - Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake and Soft Sea Foam

Having cut the large heart out form the Stitched be Mine set, I then embossed the infill using the Tufted Embossing folder to give this some depth.


I made a couple on niches in the Very Vanilla card stock after running through the big shot using the Scripty 3D embossing folder.

This enables me personally to tie these into bows without denting or tearing the card stock. 


The sentiment is from the Beautiful Bouquet set.



I hope you like card that I have shared with you using this month's theme - supplies used to create it can be ordered via my online store here and don't forget to use this months hostess code 3DKMRW9V, if your order is under £150 to receive a little something from me.

Colour Combo Blog Hop - February



Welcome to  February's  Colour Combo Blog Hop, it's been a couple of months since I've hopped with these ladies and I'm really excited to join in again this month.

You may have just visited  my dear friend Angelique'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 really wasn't sure about this colour combo when they were annouced but once I had the card stock and colours in my hands and playing around with them an idea popped into my head, so I headed to by stamps and grabbed the Varied Vases stamp set.

I then teamed this up with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.


Firstly I ran the base card stock through the big shot with Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.  I then stamped the out line of the vases, before making a mask so the flower stems didn't show. I then used the colour's to infill the images either full or second generation stamping.

Finally I matted and layered this on this months colours card stock. 

                                 

I hope you like the card that I have shared with you using this month's colours  - supplies used to create them can be ordered via my Online store here and don't forget to use this months hostess code

Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop - January




Welcome to the first of this year's Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop's.

I've been missing in action from these hops for a little while and am really keen to get back into my "Scrapping"
                                                                                                                            



                                                                                                            
For this month we have been granted  "Artistic Licenese" which means that as long as we use anything that's in the ANY of the current Catalogue's we're keeping within the rules.... 

With the release of new papers in both the NEW Mini  and the Sale A Bration catalogue's we have so much gorgeousness to choose from!!


You may have joined me from Colleen'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 used the Lily Pad Impressions Designer Series Paper, as soon as I saw these papers I just knew I had to have them!! Along with the reversible stamp set and and coordinating dies from this years SALE A BRATION offerings. 

The reason I so was going to get this collection was they reminded me of the mass of Lily Pads whilst we were on holiday in Beijing. 


I stamped some of the Lily pads in Blushing Bride and Old Olive  on coordinated cardstock, I then used the coordinating dies to cut them out and another in Blackberry Bliss. Before arranging them along the side of my designer series paper. 








Did you notice that I also stamped off some of the Lily's and  Pads on my base card stock? 


All thats left for me to add is my title using the Hand-Lettered Prose Dies, which I have left at home........... isnt it always the way you forget to pack something you really need to use!!



I  hope you liked the scrapbook page I've shared with you -  supplies used  to created this, can be ordered via my Online store here and don't forget to use this months Hostess code which can be found in the side bar.

Ink.Stamp.Share Blog Hop


Its been a few months since I have hopped along with these ladies...

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"


You may have joined me from Stacy'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 you a card I made using the Little Ladybug Host Cling Stamp Set - during Sale A Bration when you host a party or place an order that reaches £275 or more you can earn this stamp set FREE to as well as collecting the normal hostess and sale a bration rewards.



I stamped the images and then coloured them in using Stampin' Blends - Real Red, Basic Black, Smokey Slate, Daffodil Delight and Rocco Rose. Before fussy cutting them out.






The sentiment has been die cut using one of the frames from the Painted Labels Dies. I put a double layerof Stampin' Dimensional under the flower to give it some extra depth.










I  hope you like the card that I've shared with you - all supplies used  to created this 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.




Remember on the 4th a February you'll be able to purchase the die cuts for this stamp set and some others both from either the Sale A Bration offerings, Annual or Mini Catalogue.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop - Sale A Bration



Welcome to the first of this years Paper Crafting blog hop's 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.


Today I'm sharing with you one of the cards that I made to go in the stationery box I made and shared earlier this month here.

Again I have used the Lily Pad stamp set and coordinating Lily Pad dies, both available FREE during Sale A Bration this year. Details of how you can earn them for FREE can be found here.



This stamp set is one of Stampin' Up!s new styles as it's 'Reversible' which means to create your finished imaged you stamp using both sides of the stamp, my class ladies where totaly confused as I tried to explain it but once they saw it in action and played with it in class making this same card they where in awe.




When I reached for the colours to use on this card I wasn't quite sure that Blackberry Bliss and the Incolor Rocco Rose would work together, but suprisingly they do, I think this could be because the solid image stamped off making it a lot lighter in shade.




I do hope you like the card that I've made for this months hop, all supplies used  to created this 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.

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.


This month's theme is to create a project using either items from the New Sale-A-Bration & Mini Catalog's. Well what can I say there is soo much gorgeousness to choose from but I chose my favourite paper from the Sale A Bration offerings this years Lily Impressions pack. Along with the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and coordinating Lily Pad dies all available FREE




I had the instructions for a stationery box which was american sized so our UK sized envelopes didn't fit in so I adjusted a few of the measurements and volia I completed it and am really pleased with the results.  As you can see from my photo's I have also created a coordinating card using the same papers.

Have you noticed the New Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder??



The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the New Peaceful Moments stamp sets I just love the font used for this set.

Be sure to pop back soon to see some more cards made using these papers and stamp sets.
