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.

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.

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.
