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?

Flowers for Every Season OSW

Today’s cards that I want to share with you are again from the Flowers for Every Season OSW (One Sheet Wonder) like these cards from my post on the 8th January. I used a very very different sheet of the 6×6 dsp but I can assure you it is from the exact same pack. Again this One Sheet Wonder is originally from a fellow Aussie Demo Kelly Kent in WA.

I hope you’ll forgive me as I did send one of the cards to a dear friend so I don’t have all 4 cards. This One Sheet Wonder does really make the designer paper the centre of attention.

If you’d like to see more of the One Sheet Wonder cards that I have made you can see some here. Tropical Oasis, Using up DSP and I created my own DSP in this post. I would love to see some of your creations using a One sheet wonder template.

Flowers For Every Season DSP

I always love a One Sheet Wonder and so tried out this one from Kelly Kent and wanted to use some of the papers from the Flowers For Every Season DSP from the current Annual Catalogue. Here are the cards that I came up with.

I paired the Flowers For Every Season DSP with Poppy Parade, Just Jade & Mint Macaron. These papers I found hard to use but I am loving how these cards came out.

January to June Mini Catalogue

Today is the day that the January to June Mini Catalogue has been released! New catalogue release day is always an exciting day as we get to see all the new products that have been released for us to get our hands on. And there are some amazing products in this catalogue. Not only is the January to June Mini Catalogue released but so is the
Sale-a-bration Catalogue which also starts today until the 28th February. It is shorter this year but get another SAB in the middle of the year to make up for it.

During Sale-a-bration you get a gift with purchase when you spend $90. There are many choices of stamps and paper that you can choose from. Just check out the Sale-a-bration catalogue to see all the things that you’d like to receive FREE.

Butterfly Wishes

Butterfly Wishes is what I am sharing today with you and this gorgeous card. I have matched this stamp with Blushing Bride, Rococo Rose, Soft Sea Foam & Crumb Cake ink. Adding the extra texture to the card with the 3 types of ribbon adds to the card.

When I create my classes I always have left over kits and this is one of the kits I had left over so I wanted to create extra cards. Using Very Vanilla also softens the card.

I will continue to use up all the excess card kits that I have and I am hoping to use all current stamp sets to do so. Tomorrow is the last day to be able to order from the Giant Year End Close Out.
