Ink & Share Blog Hop - Selfie or a picture of you

 


Welcome to this months Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop. 

The projects are designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators from around the world.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 joined me from Kirstie'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 "Selfie or a picture of You" - I haven't had many photo's printed of myself recently so I've cheated and used one of me and my hubby.

For my layout I've scrap- lifted a layout from a fellow demonstrator - this layout uses the All Together Suite which is available until the 2nd May. Although the stamps, dies and papers discontinue the Stampin' Blends will be available in the new Annual Catalogue and I love that they are all varying skin tones. 

Using Blending Brushes  I've coloured some of the All Together 6x6 DSP to coordinate with the colours we were wearing. 



The Stampin' Up! supplies used to create this layout can be ordered via my Online store here.  Don't forget to use this month's hostess code which can be found in the side bar, to receive a little something from me if your order is under £150.

Ink & Share Blog Hop - Tic Tac Toe

 


Welcome to this months Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop. 

The projects are designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators from around the world.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 joined me from Gez'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 we were given a Tic Tac Toe board to play along with.


For my layout I chose to use the Expressions In Ink Suite from the Annual Catalogue - Artistically Inked stamp set, Artistically Dies (available as a bundle with a 10% discount), Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack and Expressions in Ink Specialty Paper. 


I chose to use one of the pieces of Expressions in Ink Specialty Paper for my base. O
nce I had paired this up with a photograph I triple mounted this on to Granny Apple, Gold Foil and Shaded Spruce card stock.





Since I had chosen green as a base colour and a spring photograph, I only had to add a tag to complete a Vertical line on  the board. But having added the tag using the Tailored Tag dies with some ribbon and some stamped flowers - in Polished Pink I could also claim the horizontal line. 




Under the stamped flowers from the Artistically Inked set I added some of the gold leave from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera pack along with some of the jewels dotted over the page... a diagonal line as well - I was amazed that I managed to complete 3 different lines in one layout without really thinking about it.




I love this photo of my daughter taken back in 2020 when she came home during the height of covid for 6 months and can't wait to see her again this summer before she and her family head off again to somewhere exotic.



The Stampin' Up! supplies used to create this layout can be ordered via my Online store here.  Don't forget to use this month's hostess code which can be found in the side bar, to receive a little something from me if your order is under £150.

Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop

  

Welcome to the first Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop of 2022.  

The projects are designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators from around the world.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 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 we were given “Artistic License” which means anything goes as long as it’s current product in either of the current catalogues or from the Sale A Bration offerings. 

As soon as I saw the Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series Papers  in the Sale a Bration offerings, I knew I wanted to do some layouts with them.  This layout I have prepared for an upcoming retreat. 

I paired the papers up with the Flowering Rain Boots Bundle (P30/78) as I have photographs of my grandchildren gardening that I'm going pop on once I've got them printed.



                                                                            Firstly I coloured the daffodil's using the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends from one of the papers.                                                                                                                                                                                     
After fussy cutting them out from the sheet before adhering it to the base card stock, which I had sponged lightly with Olive Olive one end and Balmy Blue the other. When I adhered them I used plenty of Stampin' Dimensionals to raise the top of the Daffodils.





The Stampin' Up! supplies used to create this layout can be ordered via my Online store here.  Don't forget to use this month's hostess code which can be found in the side bar, to receive a little something from me if your order is under £150. 

And remember its also SALE A BRATION, so for every £45 you spend you'll get to choose a FREE item,  the link to this years offerings can be found in the side bar too. So if you choose the Flowering Rain Boots bundle at £46.75 (also saving 10%) you'll  also qualify for these papers or another item for FREE!!

Ink Stamp Share - Pick A Suite


Welcome to the Ink. Stamp. Share's Monthly Blog Hop .....this months theme

"Pick a Suite"

The projects are designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators from around the world.

You may have joined me from Dana'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 the Heart & Home Suite which can be found on pages 58- 61 of the New Seasonal Mini Catalogue.  This suite comprises of two stamps set bundles, Hive 3D embossing folder, Papers, Denim Ribbon, Memories & More cards, Cards & Envelopes, Dollies and Matte Dots.


For this first card I  used the Honeybee Home bundle with the Hive 3D embossing folder, Stampin' Blends and added one of the sentiments from the Blessings of Home set.  To finish this off I added some Pastel Pearls.


For the next card I  used the larger of the floral images from the Blessings of Home set  and sentiments from both sets.

Using on of the Ornate layers dies and cutting this in half I positioned this above and below the image. I also remembered to dress the inside of the card. 



I ended up making two of these but I'm not sure which colour I prefer, do you have a preference? I'd love to know. 



The Stampin' Up! supplies used to create these cards or any other projects on the hop, may be ordered via my Online store here.  Don't forget to use this month's hostess code which can be found in the side bar, to receive a little something from me if your order is under £150. 

And remember its also SALE A BRATION, so for every £45 you spend you'll get to choose a FREE item,  the link to this years offerings can be found in the side bar too. so for spending £90 you'll get the choice of 2 level 1 items or 1 level 2 items.  If you love the products then have you ever thought of signing up as a demonstrator?? ask me for more details

Kre8tors Blog Hop January


Welcome to the first Kre8tors Blog Hop of 2022.  


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  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 months theme was "Free for All" 

As I had the Hello Ladybug stamp set on my desk for an upcoming class I thought I would play with that set.  I had seen a 3D project over on you tube using the set so tried my hand at that.. I am so glad I did, thank you Kajta for inspiring me.

Using one of the papers from the  Pansy Patch collection, I set out to make my box using the incolours - Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen. I also stamped out a large leaf in Soft Succulent and cut this by hand along with the little ladybug. The dots are a lot easier than I imagined to line up.



When I created the 3D Ladybug using the coordinating punch (purchasing the 2 together saves you an extra 10%) I used
 Stampin' Up!s Black Dimensional's to adhere the wings to the body - being black they won't stand out ...they're great for darker projects.




The sentiment "thanks" comes from one of the Sale - A - Bration offerings for spending £90, using the Banners Pick a Punch I  added one of the sentiments from the Hello Ladybug set. I can see myself making a few more of these for my friends.......


I hope you like the project  I have shared with you using this month's theme - supplies used to create it 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, if your order is under £150 to receive a little something from me. 

And remember its also SALE A BRATION, so for every £45 you spend you'll get to choose a FREE item,  the link to this years offerings can be found in the side bar too.

Ink Stamp Share - Showcase Hop January


Welcome to the first Ink. Stamp. Share Showcase Blog Hop of 2022 .....the purpose of this hop is to show you what we have all been working on during the month. 
The projects are 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.

I'm sharing with you a card I made for an upcoming class using the Happy Hedgehog Stamp set, this also comes with a coordinating punch so you can purchase this as a bundle saving you an extra 10%.

One reason I chose to purchase this set, was my mum liked hedgehogs so I bought it in her memory... 

Firstly using my green Blending Brushes I inked the grass in Old Olive, before stamping the bushes in Memento ink and colouring them in Stampin' Blends - Flirty Flamingo, Soft Suede, and Old Olive.



I then stamped the "Fungi" and Hedgehog on a scrap of Basic white, again colouring them with Stampin' Blends - Crumb Cake and Poppy Parade before fussy cutting them out. 


The other Hedgehog in the stamp set is the one that coordinates with the punch, which I will share with you after the class has taken place... I just wanted to show you a card without using the punch as I think this fellow is really cute too.


The Stampin' Up! supplies used to create this card can be ordered via my Online store here.  Don't forget to use this month's hostess code which can be found in the side bar, to receive a little something from me if your order is under £150. 

And remember its also SALE A BRATION, so for every £45 you spend you'll get to choose a FREE item,  the link to this years offerings can be found in the side bar too. So if you choose the bundle at £30.50 and 2 packs of Stampin' Blends you'll qualify for a Free item..
