Welcome to our August Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #45. You may have joined me from Meighans’ Blog or you may be starting right here. Either way, welcome to our blog hop.
This months Blog Hop is a Colour Challenge. The Colours we’re using this month is Real Red, Tahitian Tide and Crushed Curry. When I first saw these colours I was thinking, sure this will be easy. Then when I started playing I had a couple of second thoughts but when I got into the swing of creating 4 cards came out in very quick succession.
I chose to use the Kindest Gnomes Stamp set and this made my creating quite simple. I went to one of my favourite techniques, Masking and decided to use Stampin’ Up!’s masking paper. This stuff is brilliant! Using blending brushes I created 2 cards with the masking technique and then another card with just the brushes onto Basic White card. My last card I chose to use strips of each colour as a background and added in some Basic Gray as my neutral. I did cheat a little and added in Smoky Slate as a second neutral.

Today on my Facebook Live I was creating with the Sunny Splash stamp set by Stampin’ Up! This stamp set was not on my wishlist at all till about 2 weeks ago. I saw a number of projects that people had made and thought, yes it is a cute set, maybe I should add it to my order, so I did.
I received the stamp set just yesterday and I an say I love it. It is so cute and adds a bit of whimsy and who doesn’t love whimsy? The weather outside today is overcast and not so pleasant so what better set to use than one that is for summer?
I am loving this Sunny Splash Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up!
I did some quick searching for what others had created using this stamp set and I found a few that I was just drawn to. A couple of these cards were original designs by Songofmyheartstampers.com. Another of the cards was created by Nancy Stamps and the final card I took inspiration from Notes from Patience.
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.
Welcome to our May Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #42. You may have joined me from Marelle’s Blog or 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 colour challenge and this challenge really got me. The new In Colors are absolutely stunning and I love love love them. However, mixing one of the colours with Petal Pink & Soft Sea Foam really was a challenge for me. I chose to use the Bottled Happiness stamp set for my card, and I love this stamp set and has a lot of versatility.
Using the Tea Boutique cards and envelopes as my card base has helped to make my creativity easier on this challenge. Adding in some Gray Granite card as a frame under the stamped image to lift the layer. I used the two greens as the bottle and really happy with how it turned out adding the parakeet party as the shading on the bottle.

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.
