We’re a bit over a week away now to saying Goodbye to the 2019/2020 Annual and the January-June 2020 Mini Catalogues. In some ways I will be sad to see these go but in so many more ways I’m excited to share the new 2020/2021 Annual Catalogue with you.
There are still some fabulous products in the Last Chance Products list and even some amazing discounts on a select number of products. Make sure you check out all the amazing products befroe they are gone for good.
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.

The Painted Poppies Stamp set is one of my favourites from the January to June Mini Catalogue. And we have recently found out that these stamps are carrying over into the new Annual Catalogue. Yippee!!
I decided in January that I was going to use this suite of products for my April Retreat.
The reason was because Poppies are traditionally used as a flower to remember those we have lost during times of war. My retreat was going to be held over the ANZAC weekend.
In this very simple card I have used a Blackberry Bliss card base. Stamping the three poppy stems on a piece of whisper white card and then, using one of the mottle stamps, I stamped blackberry bliss over the poppy heads to add some colour. After that I attached a strip of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper on the left hand side of the whisper white.
To step up the project I stamped the poppy onto the envelope to keep the theme going and to match the card.
Unfortunately I had to postpone my retreat, but I was able to host a virtual one in its place and send out a retreat in a box for those that wanted to participate. It was a fun weekend that I believe everyone that “attended” enjoyed.
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.

To create this card I first needed to create a mask. Layering the mask over some Whisper White card stock I used one of the leaf images in Soft Sea Foam to create the background, overlapping them as I went. After I took off the mask I then stamped the tulip buds in Poppy Parade ink. Stamped the stems and leaves in Old Olive ink. I stamped “Happy Mothers Day” in Poppy Parade ink.
I used a Poppy Parade card base to then layer the stamped images onto a Basic Black mount.
The inspiration to use the Timeless Tulip Stamps came from Thinkingstamping.co.nz and I love how katiedrewcards.blogspot.com, created the background. Utilising both of these ideas and melding them together to create the card I have now. To say that I am really happy with how well it turned out is an understatement. I am going to be sharing this card and a few others with my team this coming weekend on a zoom meeting. We’re going to have a virtual craft session.
The Timeless Tulips Stamp set by Stampin’ Up! really is timeless. They are a stunningly designed stamp set that you will want to keep forever.
Is it Sunday again? Well another Sunday, another Designer Series Paper Day. This week I’m sharing the Garden Lane DSP which is part of the Garden Lane Suite of products. If you love green then you will love the Garden Lane DSP.
The Verant Garden Stamp set matches the designer paper beautifully. The Magnolia Lane Suite of products also coordinates with the gorgeous paper.
