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.
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.

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 Team Blog Hop for March. This month’s challenge was to create something using a product that you can earn free during Sale-a-bration. I chose to use the gorgeous Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper. I created a Card Gift Box Set. The original box was created by Crafty Caroline. I paired up the Gingham Gala DSP on the cards with the Butterfly Gala & the Gingham Gala Adhesive-backed sequins.
This is the full set of cards with the box. I really enjoyed creating this project to share with you.
