Welcome to the November Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #36. This month’s blog hop is a layout challenge. You may have arrived here 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.
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.

On Sunday night I held a Kit Along with Me Class with my team. I hold a couple of team events each month but this was an extra event. With my team growing, especially this month, the fabulous offer Stampin’ Up have during Sale-a-bration means you can join me and my team for only $169. And choose your own kit up to the value of $235 Plus get FREE Shipping, Plus get a FREE bundle from the July-December Mini Catalogue. This is a fabulous deal and I would love for you to join my team.
Anyway, getting back to Sunday night. There were 11 of us on Zoom that joined in and we all put together a kit from Stampin’ Up!’s #Kitcollection and played some Bingo. I have been wanting to try Bingo for quite some time now and I thought my team could be the guinea pigs and I think its safe to say that they loved it and so did I. It was a lot of fun and something that I plan to incorporate into my events.
The kits that Stampin’ Up! now are offering are so lovely and I know that you will enjoy putting them together as much as we did. The bonus of these lovely kits is that they are all inclusive. Everything you need to create these kits are in the box, well except for scissors.
I plan to hold a Kit Along with Me Class in September as well and you can find out the details here. Make sure to order your kit as soon as you can and make sure you use host code AP4WMNY6 to ensure you get your kit in time. I would suggest you order by the 9th of September. Unfortunately as Sydney is in lockdown, our warehouse has had to close for cleaning a few times which has slowed down shipments.
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.

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.

The Dragonfly Garden stamp set is found in the Dandy Garden Suite and is so lovely that you will get so much inspiration from it and will want to snap it up in no time. I have used the Dragonfly Garden Bundle of the stamp set and punch and also used the Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP. These were designed by the Stampin’ Up! team and I enjoyed making these cards. Using all the same products and sized card stock pieces for each card. We’ve just flipped the layout. On these cards we have also used the Mossy Meadow Braided Trim and used the Mini Glue Dots to keep the bow or not affixed to the card. You can see another set of cards from my other post and this post.
