This week has been a fairly busy week. I had my ProCRAFTinators Retreat last weekend and this weekend I have had Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage@Home event. So I really had very limited time to get the creative juices flowing. Having the challenge be a Layout meant I didn’t need to think of a design but did need to choose some products to use. I went with the early release Eden’s Garden Suite. This includes the Stamps and Dies and the limited release products of the cotton paper, designer series paper and the gems. If you love these papers and gems as much as I do, then you will want to get your hands on them quick smart as these are only while supplies last.

My card came together really quickly while I was in a break from OnStage@Home. I wanted to show off this suite and have a good play with it as I haven’t had too much time to just create for the sake of creating. On the white piece I have used my paper snips to rough up the edges around and repeated this process for the evening evergreen layer. To finish off the card I have use the gorgeous Garden Gems to help bring out the gold foil that is on the DSP.

My Card Design

In the first image below you can see the texture I created using the cotton paper where I using liquid glue and scrunch up the cotton paper and then layer onto the card front to get the crinkle look. The second image you can see that I have stamped the insert inside the card. I have also layered the white onto a piece of Evening Evergreen card stock to add extra details. On the envelope I have used the Designer Series Paper to decorate the back flap and I have stamped on the front as well.

October Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #35

Welcome to the October Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #35. This month’s blog hop is a colour challenge. You may have landed her from Melissa’s Blog or you may have started here. You will be able to continue to the blog hop by clicking on any of the links below or by clicking on the Next button which will take you to the next blog.

The creative juices were flowing and so I created 2 cards this month. Both cards I used the Color & Contour Stamp set. The inspiration for the first card came from Beth McCullough using blending brushes to create the background and masking off sections of the card each time to create a line and an ombre effect. The Basic Border Dies is a favourite product for me right now and so I chose the zigzag border to cut off the edge of the card front .

The Cards

The second card I made is a simple card just using stamps ink and paper. My husband is more partial to the cleaner look. Which one do you like better?

The Designer Series Paper I used is the Beautifully Penned paper which is available to earn FREE during Sale-a-bration which ends at the end of September. You can choose this paper FREE if you place a qualifying order for $90. If you purchase these three die sets and some card stock you will get over the $180 and you can then choose 2 items FREE from the Sale-a-bration brochure.

I layered the patterned papers onto basic black card and layered them all onto Petal Pink card stock. I cut the intricate heart out of the Rose Metallic Specialty Paper. Using the banner die that is in the Floral Heart dies was also cut out of Petal Pink card stock and I stamped in Memento Black ink and made it into an anniversary card.

August Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #33

Welcome to the August Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #33. You may have joined me from Elizabeth’s Blog or you may have started here. This month’s Blog Hop is a colour challenge. Initially I didn’t have any idea what I was going to create but after playing with a Sale-a-bration stamp set today, the card came together really quickly. The new Sale-a-bration Stamp set “Textures & Frames” which you can earn for FREE with a $90 purchase. I paired this set with the “Enjoy the Moment” stamp set from the Annual Catalogue.

We needed to use 3 of the new In Colors from the Annual Catalogue, Pale Papaya, Soft Succulent & Evening Evergreen. I chose to use the Tuxedo Black ink for the seed pod. Layering it onto a piece of Evening Evergreen and then onto a piece of Whisper White Thick card stock.

July Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #32

Welcome to the July Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #32. You may have joined me from Meigans Blog or you may have started here. This month’s Blog Hop is to create a card a designated layout. I enjoy the layout challenges as it can take some of the hard work out of the challenge for me. Are you loving the Hand-Penned stamp as much as I am? That’s why I chose this stamp set to create with this month. The sentiments weren’t quite going to work with my card so I did need to substitute with another stamp set for the sentiment and so I used the stamp set Peaceful Moments for the Thank you.

One of the colours that I really love is Granny apple Green and so I paired that with Polished Pink & Fresh Freesia and then also used Basic Black to make the flowers pop.

June Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #31

Welcome to the June Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #31. You may have joined me from Kylie’s Blog or you may have started here. This month’s Blog Hop is to create a card using Black, White and add one other colour. The challenge may sound easy as you just work in monochrome but then you need to decide which colour you want to add into the project and with 50 colours to choose from, that can get quite challenging. I chose to use Daffodil Delight and used the blending brushes to colour in the True Love Patterned paper that is retiring at the end of the month so you should purchase your pack today before it is gone.

Tying some daffodil delight ribbon around the centre breaks up the daisies. Using the tailored tag punch and the retiring You are Amazing stamp set for the sentiment finishes off the card.

May Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #30

Welcome to the May Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop #30. You may have joined me from Melissa’s Blog or you may have started here. This month’s Blog Hop is to create a card using this layout. The layout challenges can be quite fun and this one came together really quickly. I have had a very busy month and so wasn’t sure if I was going to get the chance to create my card but on Wednesday I sat down and created this card. What do you think?

Starting with the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set and coordinating dies, I created this card. I added some of the gold leaf foil to the centre of the flowers to add a bit of interest. The foil is to die for.

Its hard to see the shimmer of the foil in the photo but, if you look carefully, you may just see it and the foil is so fabulous to play with. I used the Curvy dies for the shape of the Fresh Freesia card in the background. Using the Black ink I stamped the flowers and then coloured in the flowers and leaves using the fill in stamps from the Hand-Penned Petals.
