Welcome to our March Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #40. You may have joined me from Melissa’s Blog or are you starting right here? Either way, welcome. There are 8 of us hopping along this month so you’re in for a real treat.
This months Blog Hop is a colour challenge and we are using some In Colors that will be retiring very very soon. I love the colours for this challenge but struggled to work out what I wanted to do so I went with a stamp set that I have been creating with lately, the Artfully Layered Stamp Set.
The Artfully Layered stamp set is from the January to June Mini Catalogue. I chose to do a slim line card this month. Can you believe that this is only the 2nd slimline card that I have created? What do you think of my card?

Welcome to our February Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #39. Have you joined me from Niki’s blog or are you starting right here? Either way, welcome. There are 9 of us hopping along this month so you’re in for a real treat.
This months Blog Hop is a layout challenge. This challenge was a lovely one to participate in. I was able to create two cards this month and I rotated one of the cards.
I chose to use the tulip paper and coordinating stamp set from the January to June Mini Catalogue. The cards aren’t square but I hope that I have fulfilled the challenge. Layering the DSP onto a colour other that white really brings out the colours in the Designer Series Paper. Isn’t the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper just beautiful? Leaving the DSP to shine was a great choice with just a small amount of stamping.

Welcome to our January Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #38. Have you joined me from Elizabeth’s Blog or are you starting right here? Either way, welcome.
This months Blog Hop is an “Anything Goes” challenge. Which, in and of itself, is fairly easy until you look at ALL the products we have and I need to narrow them all down and choose only a few products.
I decided to go with some more product from the January to June Mini Catalogue that has only been out for a bit over a week The “In the Moment” set is absolutely gorgeous and I was so happy to see it in my goodie bag for our Demonstrator OnStage event in November last year. Can you believe that this is the first time I’m inking it up? Neither can I but here you go. In the end I created a couple of frames on each of the cards. I didn’t like the layering effect with the image sitting on top of mat so I created the frame effect instead and cut out a window on the vanilla layer, then a smaller window on the pool party layer and then glued the image underneath. Creating the mat for the frame felt like it lifted the images more.
I’ve created a quick little video showing how I coloured in the images. I don’t show the full creative process as it changed from what I had intended to what you see above. Do you find that you change up your designs mid way through?

Welcome to another Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop. You may have joined me from Kylie’s page or joined us here. You will love seeing all the projects that the other ladies have made using products from the new January-June Mini Catalogue that was released on the 3rd January, 2020.
This month is a challenge to use products from the new Mini Catalogue. You can get a mini from me by contacting me and I will be happy to post one out to you.
I have chosen to use the “Timeless Tropical” stamp set. I loved playing with this set and love the colours. I chose these colours as they were so bright and to me they feel like summer and holidays. I used an aqua painter after I stamped each image to make the ink run and colour them in. I saw this technique at Onstage in November and thought it was so very clever so wanted to try it with this stamp set. And I think it worked beautifully.

I chose to make a male card this time as you can never have enough ideas for the men in your life. I am using “A Good Man” stamp set, the “Come Sail Away” Designer Series Paper and my Blends. I was holding a card class earlier in the day that I made this card so I had the stamp set out. As it is a male card I knew that the Come Sail Away papers would go perfectly.
Welcome to the November Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #12. If you’ve joined me from Melissa’s blog then welcome and keep hopping along with us. If you get lost along the way you can click any of the names below to get back on track. We’ve been hopping for 12 months now. I’m so excited to share these cards with you this month. The colours are so lovely by themselves. I chose the Beautiful You stamp set to work with and I love how the cards have turned out.
This first card I saw on Pinterest and changed it up. I loved the idea of using the daisy punch for the skirt. I stamped the daisy stamp from Daisy Delight in Granny Apple Green and then sponged on some Lovely Lipstick in the centre and sponged some Granny Apple Green at the tips of the leaves to blend the colours. I then cut up the petals into pairs and overlayed them into the shape of the skirt. I used the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots around her waist to hide where I’ve stuck the petals. I used the blends to colour in the rest of her dress blending the two colours together. I used Night of Navy on the ground so it looks like she’s dancing on water. The colour was a bit too dark so I used the Color Lifter to remove some of the intensity of the Navy. I then added some Shimmery Crystal Effects onto the petals and on the water.
The next three cards are fairly simple cards. I’ve always been a fan of simple cards. On the dancing lady I’ve stamped the image onto Granny Apple Green and then cut the dress out and stuck it onto the stamped image and coloured the hat with blends.

This month we were challenged with card layout. I chose to use the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley. A gorgeous suite of products that include stamps, dies, 6×6 papers, adhesive image sheets, stars & tinsel.
I used the stamps & the designer series paper stack for this project. I also used the Mossy Meadow linen thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack which I feel just goes beautifully with rest of the card.
I love the gold foil on the red mistletoe background paper and then on the flip side are the trees. I loved this combination together as they are very traditional Christmas colours. I like the simplicity of the card with just the tree and then with the candy canes as the decorations on the tree. I felt that the tree was still a little naked so I used the other tree image as the branches stamped off. I just kept stamping till it filled in the spaces of the tree.
I added the Mossy Meadow linen thread to break up the sentiment and the tree, Then I added a christmas present on the scallop circle in real red so it is quite a subtle tone on tone image.
I made another card but rotated the design on the next card as I cut the patterned paper incorrectly but it enabled me to create another card. I used the scallop circle with the image in real red ink.
