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.
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?

Welcome to the August Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop #21. You may have joined me from Kylie Page’s Blog or you have started here. This month’s Blog Hop is a colour challenge. We had to use at least 2 colours but I chose to use all of the 2020-2022 In Colors of Misty Moonlight, Magenta Madness, Bumble Bee, Just Jade & Cinnamon Cider. I chose to showcase the Mountrain Air photopolymer stamp set.
Then I chose to pull out my Sponge Brayers for this card to create a sunset. The Lovely You stamp set has some lovey sentiments to choose from. I used a Misty Moonlight card base and then layered onto Basic Black.
