Stamping Dreams - Favourite DSP

Welcome to the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop, this month it's all about DSP - Designer Series Paper. Now I will confess, I am a lover of DSP, but not a cutter, bahhaha! It looks at me and says "I'm so pretty, how can you cut me?", yes for me the struggle is real.

That being said, if you follow me, you will know that I love shimmer and bling, so it would be no surprise if I said that Specialty Designer Series Papers would be my favourite, in the Occasions Catalogue Sweet Soiree was my favourite, but now (sorry Sweet Soiree), my new favourite would be Share What You Love.

This beautifully stunning Specialty paper feature hand painded designs on heavy weight 12 x 12 sheets, and 4 designs have a translucent, pearlised finish - that set off my bling-o-meter for sure! The colours in the designs are just devine, yes there are elements of pink, but I love them all!

One of the Make & Takes at the recent OnStage event featured this paper, and rather than complete the project at the event, I finished it at home and changed up the design - I've have also added some retiring bling by the way of Petal Passion Embellishments with the "new" for my project.

Now if you are thinking that you are seeing Mint Macaron, your eyes are NOT deceiving you, yes, yay! it's returning in the 2018 Annual Catalogue.... WOOT! Both the card base and background stamping form the Love What You Do set are you Mint Macaron fix! And how gorgeous is that DSP, this hand painted design is just stunning, I'm so in Love!

You are currently visting Sue Vine - MissPinksCraftSpot, take you time and work through all the DSP projects in the hop - I'm sure that you will be inspired to cut into your pretty, pretty papers!

Thinking of Botanical Butterflies | Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Wendy Cranford

Welcome to our Crazy Crafters Blog hop with special guest Wendy Cranford for the USA. Wendy is a super talented crafter,  you may be familiar with her blog Luvin Stampin, it's full of amazing projects that are bound to inspire you.
As a Crazy Crafter, our task is to CASE (copy and selectively edit) one of Cathy's creations, I decided on the below card, I just adored the simple lay out.

Like Wendy, I've made use of the beautiful Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper - it's just gorgeous.... and can be yours FREE with a qualifying purchase during Sale-A-Bration, here's my Wendy inspired creation:

I was taken by the delicate detail of this imagery, I paired up with stitched scallop edge from the Be Mine framelits - I can't believe that I missed this framelit when I first looked at the set - I must have been too excited by all the hearts. To add height to my scalloped layers I added a layer of corrugated embossed cardstock.

The sentiment is from Climbing Roses, and…

Floating away with Tropical Chic

How quickly time goes by, it's another All Star Tutorial blog hop already! I'm always looking for new techniques and ideas, and follow a number of paper crafters -there is always so much to learn and seeing one project can open up inspiration for another.

Have you ever seen a project and just had to give it a try? My creation today is a inspired by all the Floating Frame cards I have been seeing, I just had to make one,.. but I was soon to discover that it wasn't going to be easy, search as I did, the wonderful Press & Seal still remains illusive to me here in Australia, whilst there is a Costco in Adelaide, it's a long drive so we don't have a membership, likewise the online options I located are just not cost effective, so I came up with an alternative approach for my card - my solution = a floating card front!

The first phase was to find a stamp set with medium to large die cuts, I opted for my one of my favorite sets, Tropical Chic, then to stamp and die cut …

Delicate Lace with Magnolia Lane

Well hello Saturday! What a long week that was, so happy to creative today, it feels like it's been ages! To get me in the mood I went to my favourite challenge blogs for some inspiration, and I chose this sketch:

For today's creation I've mixed some old with the new - Delicate Lace edge dies with Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper. I decided to turn the sketch on the side, it seemed to show of the lovely flowers better.

This DSP is just gorgeous, a mix of floral and stripes all using a beautiful colour palette - yes, it did have me with pink, but honestly if you replaced pink with a purple or yellow it would still be an amazing DSP.

Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project. Stay tuned for more inspiration and tips this month. If you live in Australia and don't already have a demonstrator I'd love love to be yours.
