July Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #32

Welcome to the July Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #32. You may have joined me from Meigans Blog or you may have started here. This month’s Blog Hop is to create a card a designated layout. I enjoy the layout challenges as it can take some of the hard work out of the challenge for me. Are you loving the Hand-Penned stamp as much as I am? That’s why I chose this stamp set to create with this month. The sentiments weren’t quite going to work with my card so I did need to substitute with another stamp set for the sentiment and so I used the stamp set Peaceful Moments for the Thank you.

One of the colours that I really love is Granny apple Green and so I paired that with Polished Pink & Fresh Freesia and then also used Basic Black to make the flowers pop.

June Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #31

Welcome to the June Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #31. You may have joined me from Kylie’s Blog or you may have started here. This month’s Blog Hop is to create a card using Black, White and add one other colour. The challenge may sound easy as you just work in monochrome but then you need to decide which colour you want to add into the project and with 50 colours to choose from, that can get quite challenging. I chose to use Daffodil Delight and used the blending brushes to colour in the True Love Patterned paper that is retiring at the end of the month so you should purchase your pack today before it is gone.

Tying some daffodil delight ribbon around the centre breaks up the daisies. Using the tailored tag punch and the retiring You are Amazing stamp set for the sentiment finishes off the card.

Beauty of the Earth

Welcome back to my blog and today I wanted to share with you some cards I made using the Beauty of the Earth suite of products.

Yesterday morning I woke up quite early and couldn’t get back to sleep so decided I would get up and get creating for my class that I had that morning. Nothing like creating at the last minute!

So I went onto trusty Pinterest to search for the suite Beauty of the Earth. After a very short search I found some inspiration from Glenda Calkins (The Stamp Camp) and copied her card and then continued to create 3 more cards to round out my class, adding a rotation of the layout for two of the cards.


Do you create at the last minute or are you a prepare in advance type of person?

I usually like to create well in advance but I am finding more and more that I am creating last minute. There is so much going on with my husbands business that I am not finding as much time as I would like to get creating with my own.

May Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #30

Welcome to the May Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop #30. You may have joined me from Melissa’s Blog or you may have started here. This month’s Blog Hop is to create a card using this layout. The layout challenges can be quite fun and this one came together really quickly. I have had a very busy month and so wasn’t sure if I was going to get the chance to create my card but on Wednesday I sat down and created this card. What do you think?

Starting with the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set and coordinating dies, I created this card. I added some of the gold leaf foil to the centre of the flowers to add a bit of interest. The foil is to die for.

Its hard to see the shimmer of the foil in the photo but, if you look carefully, you may just see it and the foil is so fabulous to play with. I used the Curvy dies for the shape of the Fresh Freesia card in the background. Using the Black ink I stamped the flowers and then coloured in the flowers and leaves using the fill in stamps from the Hand-Penned Petals.
