Welcome to the April Stampers Anonymous Team BlogHop #29. You may have joined me from Kylie’s Blog or you may have started here. This month’s Blog Hop is to create a Fancy Fold card. This month I wanted to create a card that had a number of elements within the card and so I went for a little search on the interwebs and stumbled across this one from Simply Simple Stamping. I like that there are a number of elements to this fancy fold card. And generally with a fancy fold card there is a limited amount of space to write your message and have it not be seen before you open it. However, with the extra panel there is a lot of space to write.
Don’t you think the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper is absolutely stunninng? I knew I had to use these papers as I just love the colours. What paper would you choose if you were to make this card?

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.

Welcome to the February Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop #27. You may have joined me from Niki’s Blog or you may have started here. This month’s Blog Hop is to a layout challenge. I do enjoy these challenges as I have somewhere to start from.
I wanted to use products from the January to June Mini Catalogue and I especially love the “Love you Always” Suite. There are so many delicious products that are now available and you’ll want to get your hands on these products.
With Valentines Day today I thought it only fitting that I use the “Love You Always” Suite. My husband and I don’t really celebrate Valentines day but I decided to give him this card anyway. The Love You Always Speciality & the True Love Designer Series Papers are absolutely gorgeous together. I paired these with the Always Dies and layered the “Love” over the outline of the word with black and white.

Today I wish to share with you a lovely set of cards using the Berry Delightful patterned paper as my first Stamp a stack class for the year.
Last night I was having a crafting session with some of my team and I was inspired by my upline Marelle and her gorgeous cards from a couple of years ago which you can see here.
I wanted to use something current for my upcoming class on the 11th & 12th February and so I chose the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper with the coordinating Berry Blessings stamp set which you can earn for FREE with a $180 purchase till the end of Febuary during Sale-a-bration. Using some coordinating colours from the patterned paper I used Blackberry Bliss, Poppy Parade, Pacific Point & Granny Apple Green. Cutting out some of the images to go beside the sentiment and then stamping the other images and fussy cutting them out. This is a lovely fancy fold card and I’d love for you to join me at one of my classes in February.
You can see some more of the wonderful papers that you can earn for free with a $90 purchase during Sale-a-bration here.
The Floating & Fluttering Bundle is such a gorgeous set of products that you would love to play with it. I started by stamping the butterflies in the corresponding colour on a piece of Basic White Card. Then I stamped the butterflies in Tuxedo Black ink on a scrap piece of Basic White. After stamping the butterflies in tuxedo black on some scrap paper and then using the blending brushes I coloured in butterflies with each colour. Using the Stampin Cut and Emboss machine and the Fluttering Dies to cut out the butterflies. I then hand cut the butterflies from each other so I could pop them up on dimensionals like their popping off the page. Using the Tailored Tag Punch I layered the sentiment onto black. I had to cut the white card down slightly so that I would have a slim border of black around the outside of it.
Using the current in colours that will be retiring in June I wanted to share how lovely they are. I love the simplicity of colours on the card, only White, Black and the In color.
