Welcome to our November Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #48. You may have joined me from Nikki’s Blog or you may be starting right here. Either way, welcome to our blog hop for this month.
This months Blog Hop is a Layout Challenge. I started creating a card for this challenge but really didn’t like what I came up with so I went back to the drawing board and created another card which I love.
Starting with the Sun Prints DSP and then choosing the coordinating Nature’s Prints Stamp Set, I was ready to create.
Taking a step away from Christmas and creating this card was a lovely change for me at this time of the year.
Don’t you just love the Sun Prints patterned papers? They are just divine and my absolute favourite in the Annual Catalogue.

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.

For my final project from my 12 Days of Christmas Series I have the Secret Santa Gift that I made for our Team Christmas Party.
I used the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series papers for my inspiration. I made a little bonbon and some half bonbons to put product and chocolates in. I used the labels I’d made on previous projects on the bag and the Jar of Malteasers. I purchased the little jar from Kmart.
I also make up a little box for some ribbon that uses no adhesive and can fold flat. The box was originally made by Sam Hammond from Pootles.
This box was originally made by Sam Hammond from Pootles.co.uk

For my Day 5 project I made up a jar with “Reindeer Noses” inside which are Malteasers and Jaffas. Its a cute little project that anyone would love. A great gift for kids too though maybe a bit too much chocolate.
I’ve used the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper, Green Sprigs, Mini Ornaments & Black Shimmer Ribbon and purchased the glass jar from Kmart.
I’ve listed all the products used at the bottom of this post.
The pocketful of sunshine stamp set presentation continues.
I wanted to make a sampler and experiment with all the stamps that were in the set so created this sampler. I took some photos of my girls hamming it up in their sunnies.
I’ve used the Color Theory paper stack in conjunction withe the stamp set.
I really love how this turned out. I just need to get the hubby to put it up on the wall for me.
The last project I made was this banner. When I saw the pocket stamp I knew it would be great to create a banner with it and combine it with the alphabet stamp set. The colours I used were Dapper Denim, Crushed Curry, Old Olive & Berry Burst.
