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.
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.

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.

Welcome to this months Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #7.
This month our challenge was to use 3 of the new In Colors that have only just been released. These are gorgeous colours to play with especially the deep rich Pretty Peacock. I also decided to showcase one of our new Stamp sets with matching punch in the Above the Clouds Bundle.
It was hard at first knowing how I was going to use these colours but then I picked up the Above the Clouds stamp set and the card came together. I used a layer of Seaside spray to break up the vanilla and added some black birds in the sky and the sentiment.
This is a two step stamp set so I used the outline of the balloons in full strength and then stamped off for the Hot air balloon.

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.

Thanks for joining the Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #5. You may have joined me from Kristy’s Cards blog, so welcome.
This month’s Blog Hop is a layout challenge. I chose to use some products that I am fairly confident that will be retiring in May. I have used the Share What you Love Designer Series Paper which is absolutely a gorgeous pack of card stock. Normally our DSP is paper weight, however this pack is a thicker weight than our normal DSP. In this pack you get 4 sheets of each patterned paper so you get a lot of card in this pack which is great as you want to just keep using it. Some sheets have some shimmer on them as well.
I have paired the dsp with the coordinating stamp set “Love what you do” in Berry Burst Ink. The card came together quite easily as I already had the layout provided so just needed to add the elements to it. Sometimes the layout can be the hardest part to card making. The colours can be the easy part especially with Stampin’ Up! as all their colours coordinate so well together.

I decided to add an envelope to my project and so I covered the back flap with some of the DSP. I really like how my whole project turned out. I added a whisper white insert into the card as the Berry Burst is just a bit dark to write on. I stamped the same flower that’s on the front to the insert as well. You can see that on the photo above.
Welcome to our February Team Blog Hop. This month we were challenged to use the colours from the Sale-a-bration Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack, Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather & Lemon Lime Twist. This ribbon is found on page 7 of the Sale-a-bration catalogue. Unfortunately, this ribbon is now unavailable due to the high demand. If you don’t want to miss out on any of the other products in the Sale-a-bration offerings, then don’t delay and put in your order today!
I chose to use the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper Stack. I found inspiration from Create with Lynn. I changed up the butterflies as I just used the Botanical Butterfly DSP for the butterflies and punched them with the duo butterfly punch. I used Highland Heather ink for the sentiment from the Birthday Cheer Stamp Set.
From tomorrow there will be a few additional items that can be earned during Sale-a-bration.
