May Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #42

Welcome to our May Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #42. You may have joined me from Marelle’s Blog or are you starting right here? Either way, welcome. There are 7 of us hopping along this month so you’re in for a great hop.

This months Blog Hop is a colour challenge and this challenge really got me. The new In Colors are absolutely stunning and I love love love them. However, mixing one of the colours with Petal Pink & Soft Sea Foam really was a challenge for me. I chose to use the Bottled Happiness stamp set for my card, and I love this stamp set and has a lot of versatility.

Using the Tea Boutique cards and envelopes as my card base has helped to make my creativity easier on this challenge. Adding in some Gray Granite card as a frame under the stamped image to lift the layer. I used the two greens as the bottle and really happy with how it turned out adding the parakeet party as the shading on the bottle.

April Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #41

Welcome to our April Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #41. You may have joined me from Marelle’s Blog or are you starting right here? Either way, welcome. There are 9 of us hopping along this month so you’re in for a great hop.

This months Blog Hop is a layout challenge and these challenges can be fairly quick to whip up as you just have to decide what stamp set and colours to choose. The retiring list is out and so I have chosen to use the Smooth Sailing dies which is discounted to $33.60 and coordinating stamp set Sailing Home which is now no longer available to purchase. I also used the New Horizons 6×6 paper stack from the January-June Mini Catalogue.

I gave some texture to the “Rope” by adding some crumb cake ink, and I also did the same to the sentiment. The seaweed I used some Mossy Meadow ink to add some texture. Don’t forget to keep hopping along on the other blogs by clicking the Next blog below or any of the links.

March Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #40

Welcome to our March Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #40. You may have joined me from Melissa’s Blog or are you starting right here? Either way, welcome. There are 8 of us hopping along this month so you’re in for a real treat.

This months Blog Hop is a colour challenge and we are using some In Colors that will be retiring very very soon. I love the colours for this challenge but struggled to work out what I wanted to do so I went with a stamp set that I have been creating with lately, the Artfully Layered Stamp Set.

The Artfully Layered stamp set is from the January to June Mini Catalogue. I chose to do a slim line card this month. Can you believe that this is only the 2nd slimline card that I have created? What do you think of my card?

February Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #39

Welcome to our February Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #39. Have you joined me from Niki’s blog or are you starting right here? Either way, welcome. There are 9 of us hopping along this month so you’re in for a real treat.

This months Blog Hop is a layout challenge. This challenge was a lovely one to participate in. I was able to create two cards this month and I rotated one of the cards.

I chose to use the tulip paper and coordinating stamp set from the January to June Mini Catalogue. The cards aren’t square but I hope that I have fulfilled the challenge. Layering the DSP onto a colour other that white really brings out the colours in the Designer Series Paper. Isn’t the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper just beautiful? Leaving the DSP to shine was a great choice with just a small amount of stamping.

January Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #38

Welcome to our January Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #38. Have you joined me from Elizabeth’s Blog or are you starting right here? Either way, welcome.

This months Blog Hop is an “Anything Goes” challenge. Which, in and of itself, is fairly easy until you look at ALL the products we have and I need to narrow them all down and choose only a few products.

I decided to go with some more product from the January to June Mini Catalogue that has only been out for a bit over a week The “In the Moment” set is absolutely gorgeous and I was so happy to see it in my goodie bag for our Demonstrator OnStage event in November last year. Can you believe that this is the first time I’m inking it up? Neither can I but here you go. In the end I created a couple of frames on each of the cards. I didn’t like the layering effect with the image sitting on top of mat so I created the frame effect instead and cut out a window on the vanilla layer, then a smaller window on the pool party layer and then glued the image underneath. Creating the mat for the frame felt like it lifted the images more.

My Cards

Here are both cards using the In The Moment Stamp Set.

I’ve created a quick little video showing how I coloured in the images. I don’t show the full creative process as it changed from what I had intended to what you see above. Do you find that you change up your designs mid way through?

August Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #33

Welcome to the August Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #33. You may have joined me from Elizabeth’s Blog or you may have started here. This month’s Blog Hop is a colour challenge. Initially I didn’t have any idea what I was going to create but after playing with a Sale-a-bration stamp set today, the card came together really quickly. The new Sale-a-bration Stamp set “Textures & Frames” which you can earn for FREE with a $90 purchase. I paired this set with the “Enjoy the Moment” stamp set from the Annual Catalogue.

We needed to use 3 of the new In Colors from the Annual Catalogue, Pale Papaya, Soft Succulent & Evening Evergreen. I chose to use the Tuxedo Black ink for the seed pod. Layering it onto a piece of Evening Evergreen and then onto a piece of Whisper White Thick card stock.

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.
