Ink.Stamp.Share Blog Hop - December



Welcome to December's  Ink. Stamp. Share 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 

 "use something new from the Spring/Summer catalogue and/or SAB"

You may have joined me from Annette'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 have chosen one of the new million dollar achievers stamps set - 
Happy Thoughts and paired this with the Ornate Layers dies.  Having stamped the sentiment and die cutting it out,  I chose to showcase one the papers from the Flower & Field DSP collection from the upcoming Sale A Bration offerings.
Flower & Field DSP


To add some dimension to the card I stamped some of the flowers form the
Beautiful Friendship stamp set with the Midnight Muse ink. To finish this off (I don't think my photograph picks this up) I went over ALL the flowers - even on the DSP with my Wink of Stella Glitter Brush





If you purchased the Ornate Layers dies and the Happy Thoughts/Beautiful Friendship stamp set you would be able to earn the papers for FREE  

I hope you like the card that I've shared with you - supplies used  to created this can be ordered via my Online store here

Remember to use the current months hostess code,which can be found in the side bar, to receive a little something from me if your order is under £150. 

If you don't have a demonstrator and would like a copy of the upcoming mini and SAB catologues please do contact me and I'll be more than happy to pop one in the post for you. And if your not sure how sale a bration works then I'll be more than happy to explain.

Had a Hoot!!!

I had a real "hoot" making these commissioned cards which use the Have a Hoot stamp set and the Winter Snow Embossing Folder.                                                                                                                                           Using Memento Ink on a Layering Circle cut from Vellum cardstock I stamped the pair of owls, then stamped them again and coloured them using Stampin' Blends.                                                                                                                            Adding the lovely sheer ribbon I made them into baubles. Before placing them on a matt of whisper white card stock embossed with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder.


I hope the recipients liked them.

Supplies used  to created this card, can be ordered via my Online store here. Please remember some of the items used on this layout can be found in the Winter Mini Catalogue which ends real soon so hurry before they go out of stock!!

Christmas - was my choice, I chose to scrap my photo's from last year (as I'm so far behind) and it was really special as Amy and Symeon came back from Bejing for the festivities and it was the first time Amy and Lucy met each others newborns- Ezana (born in May) and SJ (born in June) it was such an exciting time for all. Frank and I were so excited to met SJ again and having for hugs with him.




I paired by photographs with the Gnome for the Holidays stamp set and Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper to create this double page spread.  I also used the Stitched Triangle dies to create the tree's the one white one on the right page is just waiting for me to add my journaling.

Colour Combo Blog Hop - December

 


Welcome to  Decembers's Colour Combo Blog Hop, using the colours shown above -  Gray Granite, Real Red and Cinnamon Cider 

You may have just visited Elisabeth'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.

When I first saw this colour combination I immediately thought of Christmas - not sure why though.  So I reached for my Forever Fern Stamp set and coordinating dies Forever Flourishing Dies from the Forever Greenery Suite.


Firstly I stamped some of the leaves in Cinnamon Cider both - first and second generation stamping and some berry's and the littlest leaves in Real Red. I then cut these out using the coordinating dies and one of the leaf flourishes in Whisper White Card stock. When I was happy with my arrangement I glued them together and put them to one side whilst I set about the base of the card.




For the base I used Real Red and a matt layer of whisper white, to pull the colours together I cut out a large rectangle out of the whisper white and added in a Gray Granite one. It really shows off the beauty of the edges on these dies.  The sentiment is from the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set. 

  

I hope you like the card that I have shared with you using this month's colours.  Supplies used to create 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 to receive a little something for me if your order is under £150.
