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.

Daffodil Daydream by Stampin’ Up!

The Project I’m sharing with you today is using the stamp set Daffodil Daydream by Stampin’ Up! I created this card because of a colour challenge at a Stamp Camp back in February. The colours I needed to use was Shaded Spruce, Melon Mambo & Crumb Cake.

I chose to use the stamp set Daffodil Daydream by Stampin’ Up! and used my blends to colour in the daffodils. Not the traditional colour but I love the cards.

At the stamp camp I decided to record a number of the cards that I made including some shoeboxes and I’ll continue to share these with you over the coming weeks. You can see some I’ve already shared here.

Don’t forget there is still the Last Chance Products list still on so you can grab yourself a bargain before all the products are gone for good.

Mischievous Mice Host Stamp Set

On my Facebook Live on Friday I used the Mischievous Mice Host Stamp Set to create a birthday card. This is a host set that you can earn with a minimum order of $250. It is a super cute stamp set that you will love to use. I coloured in the sweet little mouse using Smoky Slate and Calypso Coral Blends and then add some Pool Party blends on the “ground” at his little feet.

The design for this card came from the January to June Mini Catalogue. I loved the layout so much that I decided to case the catalogue but added my own touch to the card.

Hannah Turns 12 in Lockdown

My youngest daughter Hannah turns 12 in Lockdown today. We live in Sydney Australia and we have been in lockdown since the end of June and we are now at week 11 and there looks like there will be another 8 weeks at least.

But as Hannah turns 12 and we are in lockdown I wanted to celebrate her as much as we can at this time. So I made her this card as she is a huge fan of Harry Potter. She has read all the books and her favourite house is Hufflepuff which is why the card is the colours that they are. The majority of her gifts are Harry Potter related so I hope she is going to be super excited with them.

I used the Suit & Tie dies and the Playful Alphabet dies from Stampin’ Up! And then used the Biggest Wish stamp set for the sentiment inside. I did make a smudge on the collar but hopefully it just adds to the look of the card and highschool 🙂

Team Blog Hop #18

Team Blog Hop #18 Sketch Challenge

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.

Don’t forget to click on the “Next Blog” button below to be taken to Nikki’s blog and see her creations or you can go backwards to Meighen’s Blog to see what she has created.

Using the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper allowed me to stamp less to let the paper do the work for me.
