It's a Birthday Bash with Stampin Friends!


Hello and welcome to this month's Stampin Friends Birthday Bash Blog Hop. We have lots of ideas for you for cards and gift packaging, sit back, grab a cuppa and enjoy!

I've combined elements from the Annual Catalogue with touch of the Occasions catalogue for my projects today:



I love the die cuts in the Window Box Framelits set, the decorative candle thinlet is so cute, and not only that, when cut with Stitched Shapes Framelits they fit perfectly around the sides of the hexagonal box. And for something a bit different for the box, changed it up so it opens on the side instead of the top.



I decided to use a white background and use bright and happy colours, the Narrow Note Cards from the Occasions catalogue were the perfect size for the candles as well as the sentiment from Picnic with You. After layering strips of coloured card stock behind the die cut I popped the "candle element" on the card using dimensionals - simple but effective!



The gift box has 5 of the "candle elements", and the groovy raised banner is so easy to create with the special thinlet in the window box set - it cuts and pre-scores edge of the banner, so you can make it what ever size you need, so versatile!

Art Gallery Painted Texture - All Star Tutorial Blog Hop Jan 2021

Hello and welcome to my first post for the year, and also to join me with the new All Star Tutorial Design Team Blog Hop. I've fallen in love with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder, so I've made a card for today featuring this as well as the images and die cuts from the Art Gallery Bundle. The flowers are a 2 stamp process, I've used Petal Pink with Calypso Coral (stamped off once).  I stamped the base image twice and trimmed the flowers off so as to get the Soft Sea Foam leaves. Lastly I added a touch of bling with Champagne Rhinestones.  Be sure to continue through the list below to see more creations from the Flowers for Every Season Suite from the design team: Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project.

Peony Garden All Star Blog Hop

Happy Friday and welcome to the new look All Star Tutorial Team. Today we have more projects featuring the gorgeous Peony Garden Suite. After a few crazy busy weeks at my not so 9 to 5 day job, some colour therapy was needed; I find colouring relaxes me and helps me unwind, how about you? I used light & dark Highland Heather & Old Olive Stampin' Blends, then added Light Pool Party around the edge of the images - all the time using the Color Lifter to help blend the colours to my liking. To finish I added a strip of Basic Black cardstock and some black ink splatters.  Continue through the list below to see more creations from the design team: Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project.

Celebrate Sunflowers

I can't believe it's October, another month has gone by, on the plus side we are closed to the end of 2020, and a new All Star Tutorial Bundle is available. This month we are showcasing the Flowers for Every Season suite, I've been using the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle for my creations. I made this card with a recipient in mind, so that's why the non traditional flower colour theme, but to be honest I think it looks great. I purposely left some of the die cut pieces in the flowers to an extra hint of Coastal Cabana contrast to the Bermuda Bay background. I used a Stampin Marker to underline the sentiment, and of course I had to add a little bling, just a hint of Metallic Mesh Ribbon behind the banner and some shimmer paint for the centre of the sunflowers.

Sending Smiles with Butterfly Bouquet

One of the fantastic things about being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is that we get early access to catalogue items - just the Butterfly Bouquet Collection!  This means that we can show you our wonderful projects on the day that it released to customers.... TODAY! Isn't it just gorgeous, talk about want it all...... uhh, yes! I reframed from using DSP today and have focused on the beautiful die cuts. The set comes with both outline and detailed dies, so it's entirely up to you as to what you want to use, surprise, I couldn't choose, so stamped a couple of the smaller images to combine with a large diecut. I used blending brushes with Highland Heather and Seaside Spray, with the sentiment (from Many Messages) and butterfly detail stamped with Gray Granite. The background is courtesy of the Painted Texture 3D Embossing folder. Be sure to continue through the blog hop for more inspiration from Butterfly Bouquet.

Love You Always - All Star Tutorial Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the All Star Tutorial Design Team Blog Hop featuring this month's suite - Love you Always. For today's card I've let the True Love Designer Series Paper do most of the work. After cutting the flowers, I added a light touch of colour with Blushing Bride and Soft Sea Foam then positioned under the double banner - I love how this banner has the indentations for folding to make it look more 3D. Lastly I added a touch of bling with Blushing Bride Metallic Ribon and Champagne Rhinestones.  Be sure to continue through the list below to see more creations from the Love You Always Suite from the design team: Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project.
