July Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #44

Anything Goes using something new from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalogue

Welcome to our July Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #44. You may have joined me from Melissa’s Blog or you may be starting right here. Either way, welcome to our blog hop.

This months Blog Hop is an Anything Goes from the Stampin’ Up! July to December Mini Catalogue. I had plans to get creative and make something but my month has been super busy with a kids holiday program at my church last week and then we went away for a couple of days for a bit of a break so I didn’t get a chance to create something new and so please forgive me for sharing a card I made for a team swap last month.

I chose to use the ‘Decorated with Happiness’ stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! July to December Mini Catalogue.  The colours I used are Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler and Sahara Sand.  I have also used the Time Worn Type 3D embossing folder on the Sahara Sand layer and then used the Blending Brushes to add an antique look to my card.  I used the blending brushes on all the pieces to add that antique look.  Using my paper snips I chose to shred up the edges and add an additional antique look 🙂

Have you had a chance to look through the Mini Catalogue yet? What is your favourite product from the Stampin’ Up! July to December Mini Catalogue?

Splendid Thoughts

On my Facebook Live last Friday I shared the Splendid Thoughts stamp set and created 5 cards using the stamp set. I created a couple over basic cards to start with and then stepped them up.

I was really happy with how they turned out and you can watch the quick video below where I have sped up the card making. You can also watch the extended version here.

I show you the masking technique in a couple of the cards and this is a technique that I love using. It really is a fun way to create a card. Show me your projects that you’ve made using the masking technique.

Flowering Rain Boots

Every Friday I do a Facebook Live on my business Facebook Page. Today was no exception and I chose to Showcase the Flowering Rain Boots Stamp Set and coordinating Rain Boots Dies.

Both of the these are on the Last Chance Product list till the end of June 2022. I had a bit of a search online to see what others had created and took inspiration from a few projects and came up with these 4 cards. The current 2022-2024 In Colors are really my favourite inks to use right now and I chose to use them in these projects with the Flowering Rain Boots stamps.

I created 4 cards and have stepped up each card as I went. Simple cards are a favourite because it means you can create them at home with minimal supplies. My first and second cards are very simple. The last two cards have used the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to cut out elements and to emboss the background.


I have created two videos this week. The first one is my Friday Facebook Live where I chat through what I am creating. The second video is a short sped up version of the video. I recorded the short one simultaneously via my phone so I could edit it quickly.

Which version of video do you prefer to watch?

June Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #43

Welcome to our June Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #43. You may have joined me from for are you starting right here? Either way, welcome. There are 7 of us hopping along this month so you’re in for a great hop.

This months Blog Hop is a layout challenge. I had plans in my head about what I wanted to use and had an image of what I expected the card to look like, however it turned out differently to what was in my mind. When I first starting thinking about the layout I wanted to use the “He’s the Man” Suite of products. I am loving the papers, stamps and dies of this suite. A great suite for those men in your lives.

I chose to use Sahara Sand, Soft Succulent & Early Espresso card stock and stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink so that I could emboss the sentiment in White embossing powder.
