Last days to get your hands on the Snowflake Showcase!

How quick has November gone, I can't believe that December is almost here, which means there is only a few days left to purchase any of the items form the Snowflake Showcase promotion.

I've used my favourites for this project, the Snow is Glistening Stamp Set and the GORGEOUS Snowfall Thinlets



I'm feeling under the weather today, so I reached to the sample in the below flyer and gained inspiration. I used warm instead of cool colours for this snowflake themed project - different to the norm for me as I would normally opt for blues and purples, but adore the finished project, especially the touch of gold, so simple with the Gold Foil edged cards and envelopes.

Merry Christmas to All | Eclipse technique

Welcome to this months Ink it! Stamp it! Christmas themed hop - I'm sure you are going to be inspired with some amazing creations from the team.

I started with a simple design, but me being me couldn't stop there, and decided to add the Eclipse technique to my project



I can't get enough of the Foil-edged cards and envelopes, they add a whole new level to your card with no effort at all = love! Speaking of love, the snowflakes in Snow is Glistening are gorgeous, and so are the Trinkets.

After stamping the Merry sentiment in Merry Christmas to All over the snowflakes, I die cut the word Christmas from the card base (being careful to keep all of the little pieces), then 3 times in Coastal Cabana.


The next step is to place a Costal Cabana die cut back into the card, then position your "little bits" back in to the card base, then layer the other Coastal Cabana die cuts on top of each other and finish by placing the white die cut from the card base on top - I offset mine a little to show off the Coastal Cabana.



To finish, paint Frost White Shimmer paint on the lower part of the die cut, and adhere a trinket.

Beauty Abounds | Crazy Crafter Blog Hop with special guest Dena Rekow

Welcome to todays Crazy Crafter Special Guest Blog Hop, we have the great pleasure to be CASEing Dena Rekow from the United States, I love Dena's creations and tutorials - you many have visited her at The Creativity Cave.

 Country Home by Stampin' Up!

When I saw Dena's card, I fell in love with the double stamping, and decided to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) this element. Here's what I was inspired to create...


I don't normally post projects from an upcoming catalogue so early (in this case the Occasions Catalogue, pre order available to Demonstrations from 5th Dec, and customer purchases from 3rd January 2019), but I got sooooo excited with my weekend delivery  of Product Purchase Premiere from OnStage I couldn't resist.


This stamp set is called Beauty Abounds, and is a bundle with an absolutely gorgeous butterfly die cut (stay tuned for projects with that - there will be many, it's stunning).

After stamping using Crumb cake colour select parts of the stamped images with Old Olive, Soft Sea Foam and Melon Mambo using an Aqua Painter, then apply a soft layer of shimmer using Vegas Gold (I mixed with a little rubbing alcohol). I love my bling, so a little Metallic Thread and Pearls later and my card was finished.



Get comfortable and work your way through the list below to see all the amazing creations  inspired by Dena, I can't wait to see what the rest of the team has to show you, don't miss out on any of these blog posts today as I know you are going to get inspiration!
