Team Blog Hop #18

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.

Painted Poppies Stamp

This is a very simple card using the Peaceful Moments & the Painted Poppies Stamp sets

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.

Blog Hop #6

Thanks for joining us on another team blog hop. If you’ve found me by hopping along from Kerry Bunting’s blog, Welcome and thanks for checking out my page.

This month we wanted to share the retiring products from the current Annual Catalogue. I chose to use the retiring In Colors of Fresh Fig, Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink & Berry Burst. I have really loved using these colours over the last two years and will miss them when they’re gone but I’m equally excited for the In colors that are coming next month to replace them.

The stamp set I’ve chosen is Florentine Filigree which is such an elegant stamp set and is so simple to use. I have simply stamped the images and let them stand on their own. I stamped the sentiment “Thank You” on both cards and just used my papersnips to create two different types of banners but you can also use the triple banner punch to create one of the banners.

You can hop along with us by clicking on any either of the links below to go forward or backwards. If you get lost just come back here and you can get back on the hop by clicking on any of the links below these buttons as with the list of blogs.

Double Flap Picnic Basket

I was looking for a box to put some little goodies in as a gift and came across a great tutorial from Crafty Caroline in the UK.

I made the picnic basket & love it.  It is a little fiddly putting the lid on and putting the split pins on but I love how they turned out.  I’ve used up some lovely designer series paper and a good way to use up your retiring products.  The split pins are no longer available from Stampin’ Up! but I’m using up my stock of them.

Here is the video tutorial for the box.  I hope you will enjoy making this box as much as I did.  Don’t forget that the retirement list is out and selling fast so go online to my shop and grab yourself a bargain as some items are up to 50% off
