Welcome to the March Stampers Anonymous Team BlogHop #28. You may have joined me from Elizabeth’s Blog or you may have started here. This month’s Blog Hop is to a colour challenge. Colour challenges can be fun and not so fun, if you know what I mean. But I do like these colours together and I knew which stamp set I wanted to use straight away.
I wanted to use products from the January to June Mini Catalogue and I like the Fine Art Floral Suite. And with so many great products that are still available, you’ll want to get your hands on these products now.
I had some inspiration for this card from one I recieved this past week from our Demonstrator Development Manager, Clare. Her card is gorgeous and had an embossed frame and I wanted to incorporate that into my card. However, I felt the white in the background was a bit stark for me so I chose one of colours to be a background layer. Then I chose the coordinating Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder from the Art Gallery Suite. I applied some ink to the folder and then ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to add some depth to the embossed image.

I always love a One Sheet Wonder and so tried out this one from Kelly Kent and wanted to use some of the papers from the Flowers For Every Season DSP from the current Annual Catalogue. Here are the cards that I came up with.
I paired the Flowers For Every Season DSP with Poppy Parade, Just Jade & Mint Macaron. These papers I found hard to use but I am loving how these cards came out.
If you’d like to see more of the One Sheet Wonder cards that I have made you can see some here. Tropical Oasis, Using up DSP and I created my own DSP in this post. I would love to see some of your creations using a One sheet wonder template.

Today I want to share with you a card that I made for my eldest daughters Teacher. The class parent was collecting money for a gift for the teacher and I offered to make a card to go with the gift. I also had some Christmas gift tags to go into the gift as I always love giving a handmade gift rather than just money. Gift tags are always a more practical gift as they can use them straight away for Christmas.
Here is the card I made.
I used the Water colour pencils for this project and enjoyed colouring this card especially as the Teacher is a very creative teacher that coordinates our Art Show every second year.
I stamped the image 3 times, twice on Whisper White and then the third time was on another piece of Whisper White then fussy cut it out and popped it onto dimensionals after I coloured it.
The hamper was given to her on Wednesday but I wasn’t able to be there unfortunately but have since heard that she loved the card.
If you’d like to order any of these products please check them out on my online shop and if you use the hostess code of the month then I will send out an extra special thank you to you for your order.
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
