May Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #42

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.

Artfully Layered Bundle

The Artfully Layered Bundle jumped out at me as soon as I saw it. I love the greenery in the paper and the dies are just to die for, pardon the pun. This is also my first class for the year which will be held on Thursday 17th February at 10am. You can email me for more details or click on this link.

The Designer Series Paper is so lovely that it does a lot of the work for you when you’re creating your projects. This suite would also go well with the Paradise Palms Bundle

Artfully Layered Bundle Cards

Each Friday I have been doing a facebook friday live and on the 31st December I am showcasing these cards, however I did create some quicker cards on the live. I also upload the video to youtube. I have been enjoying the facebook lives and it has helped me with my creativity.
Which version of the cards would you like to re-create? I show these cards above at about the 6 minute mark on the video if you wish to skip ahead.

Paradise Palms Bundle

Paradise Palms Bundle is available now from the January to June Mini Catalogue while supplies last. When I was creating this card I couldn’t locate my dies so I fussy cut out the palm heads. I was casing the catalogue with this card but changed it slightly. Adding some ink behind the trees adds something extra to the card I think. What do you think? This is the second card in my series of cards and you can see the first card here.

Paradise Palms Card

Sharing today the Paradise Palms card I created using the blending brushes to create a sunset. I started by punching out a circle from a post it note and stuck it onto my card front. Using the blending brushes I added the ink to the front of the card.

January Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #38

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.

My Cards

Here are both cards using the In The Moment Stamp Set.

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?
