Welcome to another Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop. You may have joined me from Kylie’s page or joined us here. You will love seeing all the projects that the other ladies have made using products from the new January-June Mini Catalogue that was released on the 3rd January, 2020.
This month is a challenge to use products from the new Mini Catalogue. You can get a mini from me by contacting me and I will be happy to post one out to you.
I have chosen to use the “Timeless Tropical” stamp set. I loved playing with this set and love the colours. I chose these colours as they were so bright and to me they feel like summer and holidays. I used an aqua painter after I stamped each image to make the ink run and colour them in. I saw this technique at Onstage in November and thought it was so very clever so wanted to try it with this stamp set. And I think it worked beautifully.

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.
Welcome to the November Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #12. If you’ve joined me from Melissa’s blog then welcome and keep hopping along with us. If you get lost along the way you can click any of the names below to get back on track. We’ve been hopping for 12 months now. I’m so excited to share these cards with you this month. The colours are so lovely by themselves. I chose the Beautiful You stamp set to work with and I love how the cards have turned out.
This first card I saw on Pinterest and changed it up. I loved the idea of using the daisy punch for the skirt. I stamped the daisy stamp from Daisy Delight in Granny Apple Green and then sponged on some Lovely Lipstick in the centre and sponged some Granny Apple Green at the tips of the leaves to blend the colours. I then cut up the petals into pairs and overlayed them into the shape of the skirt. I used the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots around her waist to hide where I’ve stuck the petals. I used the blends to colour in the rest of her dress blending the two colours together. I used Night of Navy on the ground so it looks like she’s dancing on water. The colour was a bit too dark so I used the Color Lifter to remove some of the intensity of the Navy. I then added some Shimmery Crystal Effects onto the petals and on the water.
The next three cards are fairly simple cards. I’ve always been a fan of simple cards. On the dancing lady I’ve stamped the image onto Granny Apple Green and then cut the dress out and stuck it onto the stamped image and coloured the hat with blends.

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.

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.

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.
