Team Blog Hop #18 Sketch Challenge

Welcome to the Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop #18. Thank you for joining us along our journey to creativitiy. This month it was a layout challenge. I just love this suite with all the bright colours. Which is why I really enjoyed this challenge. As it gave me the opportunity to play with the Birthday Bonanza Suite.

This suite will be retiring in just a short couple of weeks. Do you love this suite as much as I do? Then you had better go and buy the suite now before it is gone for good.

I wanted to let the Designer Paper do the work for me in this Team Blog Hop. However, I knew I needed to add some stamping onto the card too, so I stamped the Toucan and the party hat to add another focal point. And of course I needed to add the sentiment. I gave this card to my daughter for her 13th Birthday which was on the 1st of May.

Don’t forget to click on the “Next Blog” button below to be taken to Nikki’s blog and see her creations or you can go backwards to Meighen’s Blog to see what she has created. If you get lost along the way you can always come back here and click on any of the links below to see the other creations. I can honestly say that there is a lot of creativity amongst these amazing women. Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to check out our blog hop next month as well.

Using the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper allowed me to stamp less to let the paper do the work for me.

Team Blog Hop #17

Thanks for joining us this month for our Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop #17. You may have joined me by coming from Kerry’s blog or you may be starting here. Either way, welcome.
This months Blog Hop is a colour challenge. We were challenged to use Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo & Smoky Slate. I chose to use the Under My Umbrella bundle and added in Whisper White & Basic Black as my neutrals. Using lot of my circle punches with this card made it quick to create and I love how it has turned out. You could step up the card again by running the basic black through an embossing folder.
I also made the card with the different colours as a frame.

On the card on the right I made a little mistake with the embossing and as there are no mistakes in cardmaking I used a black circle to cover up my bad embossing 🙂

I have created a video on how I made it and you can find that below. If you like the video, please subscribe to my channel as I am creating videos on a regular basis. If there is something that you’d like me to show you, please let me know by commenting below.

I chose to make a male card this time as you can never have enough ideas for the men in your life. I am using “A Good Man” stamp set, the “Come Sail Away” Designer Series Paper and my Blends. I was holding a card class earlier in the day that I made this card so I had the stamp set out. As it is a male card I knew that the Come Sail Away papers would go perfectly.

Blog Hop #11

Welcome to our October Blog Hop. You may have just come from Amanda’s blog or starting here. Either way it is good to have you join our blog hop. You can continue to hop along with us by clicking on the Next Blog or Previous Blog. Or if you get lost you can click on any of the links below to get back to hopping.

This month we were challenged with card layout.  I chose to use the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley.  A gorgeous suite of products that include stamps, dies, 6×6 papers, adhesive image sheets, stars & tinsel.

I used the stamps & the designer series paper stack for this project.  I also used the Mossy Meadow linen thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack which I feel just goes beautifully with rest of the card.

I love the gold foil on the red mistletoe background paper and then on the flip side are the trees. I loved this combination together as they are very traditional Christmas colours. I like the simplicity of the card with just the tree and then with the candy canes as the decorations on the tree. I felt that the tree was still a little naked so I used the other tree image as the branches stamped off. I just kept stamping till it filled in the spaces of the tree.

I added the Mossy Meadow linen thread to break up the sentiment and the tree, Then I added a christmas present on the scallop circle in real red so it is quite a subtle tone on tone image.

I made another card but rotated the design on the next card as I cut the patterned paper incorrectly but it enabled me to create another card. I used the scallop circle with the image in real red ink.

Team Blog Hop #10

Can you believe it? We’re in double digits for our Blog Hop.

Thanks for joining us on our blog hop journey of Holiday Catalogue Projects. This month’s challenge was a great one to do as we all get to play with brand new product from the new Holiday Catalogue which was only released 10 days ago.

I have chosen to play with the Memories & More Card Pack from the Night Before Christmas Suite. I have always loved these cards as they make creating cards very quick and easy. In this card pack you get 6 each of 9 double designs and 6 sticker sheets. So you could easily grab 5 friends and get together to make some simple Christmas cards.

There is very little stamping on these cards as most of them already have the sentiments for you. I did add the “Celebrate the Season” to Santa in Cherry Cobbler ink from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set as he needed a little something extra and rather than using a punch I just used my papersnips to cut the Vanilla Card on an angle to add some extra dimension.

Team Blog Hop #9

Welcome to this months Team Blog Hop #9. You may have joined me from Olivia’s blog. Please feel free to take a look around. This month we had a colour challenge using up to 5 colours. I chose to use 4 colours and hoping that using whisper white is allowed.

I chose to use the High Tide stamp set along with some patterned paper from the Come Sail Away DSP.

I used some Balmy Blue layered under the striped patterned paper and then with the Mint Macaron I used the Subtle 3D embossing folder to add some texture.

I stamped the sentiment onto a Sahara Sand Circle using the Layering Circle Dies and then using the same circle cut out a Balmy Blue circle to layer off centre.

Team Blog Hop #8

Thanks for hopping along on another month of our Team Blog Hop #8. If you have just come from Kristy’s blog then Welcome to my blog and please make yourself at home and write a comment if you feel inspired.

This month’s hop is a layout challenge. I had a few false starts on this challenge but am quite happy once I finished. I kept changing my mind about which stamp set I wanted to use but finally settled on the Crackled stamp but then had to work out which stamp set to go with it and I pulled out the Daisy Lane stamp set. Once I had these two sets I was good to go. I love love love the Pretty Peacock In Color. That may feature in a few of my cards throughout the next two years.

I used the fern in the Daisy Lane stamp set and stamped a second time without reinking. I also stamped the fern on the inside of the card on vanilla card stock.
