All about Love with Stampin Friends

Hello Friends,wWelcome to the first 2019 Stampin Friends Blog hop. It's great to be back hopping with the group...especially with all the beautiful new stamps and products available in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue, not to mention the Sale-A-Bration, January is a fabulously crafty time of year! 

Our theme is month is "All About Love", I immediately thought of hearts, and I was lucky enough to receive my order containing the Meant to Be Bundle just in time to be able to create for this theme - here's my Love inspired creations:


I did have a couple of change of plans with the projects, mainly being due to be spoilt for choice with gorgeous heart stamps and oh my.... the coordinating Be Mine heart framelits, so many to choose from.

I finally decided on the floral edged heart stamp, as it had a coordinating edge stamp, which was perfect for the gift box in my project. A Diamond Box seemed perfect for this months theme, after all, diamonds are associated with Love.



After Silver embossing the stamping, I used an Blender Pen to apply Melon Mambo and Pear Pizzazz to the design, then added a layer of shimmer paint to the heart.

Here's a close up of the matching card to complete the set. Repeat stamping is a great way to add interest to a card, I stamped the sentiment with Melon Mambo, then added a plain Whisper White Layer - I am loving the straight scalloped edge die, and what a bonus that is also has the stitched detail... Love! I also added a little metallic thread above the stitching for a little extra bling, then added a matching heart to complete.

All Star Tutorial Blog Hop

Not only is today the monthly All Star Blog Hop, but it is also the launch day of Sale-A-Bration and the Mini Catalogue, wow what a busy day!

Do you ever get caught up in the detail, and before you know it hours have past and all you really wanted was a quick card? That is me all to often,but today card came together quickly and it's perfect for a masculine birthday event too!

Who would have thought with just a strip of Birthday Bonanza Designer Series paper, a sentiment from Bonanza Buddies (from the new Mini Catalogue) you could have a gorgeously masculine card in a jiffy!

I raised card front layer using some corrugated embossed cardstock for a little mow impact, the DSP is adhered directly to the card base, here's the side view


Lastly add some sequins to celebrate the happy day = card is complete!


Yes, it's a simple design, but less can be more on some days, hahaha (I don't have many of those days when it comes to card making).

Say it with Stars... Happy Birthday

I've had a crafty orientated day today in between weekend household chores, after delivering catalogues, and in between multiple loads of washing & cooking I played with part of my So Many Stars bundle..... being the Stitched Stars dies (23 in the set, spoiilt for choice, woot!)

These dies were perfect for the Global Design Project theme this week:


I started by stamping my birthday sentiment, then placed 3 of the star dies (the 3 smaller detailed stars) in position and ran through the Big Shot, then re-positioned and worked by way along the edge of the card, cutting 7 in total - perfect for a rainbow of colour.


I used 2 of the stitched stars to cut the colours, then placed them behind the card front and popped up on dimensionals, lastly mounting the card front on a Thick Whisper White card base, and there you have it, a fun Children's birthday card!

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.
