Stampin Friends October 2020 Blog Hop


Hello, the Stampin Friends Blog Hop is here for October, our theme today "Thanks/Thankful". I've used the Arrange a Wreath Bundle and Buffalo Check stamp set for my creation. 



I began by cutting a Cajun Craze and Mossy Meadow wreath, then intertwined them, then cut 3 Crushed Curry flowers. After working out the arrangement I wanted something more, that more was the Buffalo Check, so I stamped in Crushed Curry, but it still wasn't what I was hoping for.....so I stepped up the check to plaid by ruling lines with my Stampin' Markers, that did the trick, tying all the elements together.



I trimmed the plaid panel and adhered to the card and attached the wreath using a mix of glue and dimensionals, I also added a little Linen Thread for bling (not all bling shines) and lastly added the sentiment.

For the treat box I partially stamped the wreath after cutting with the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box, then cut some wreath elements from scraps and threaded through the handle.

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!

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:

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.

All Star November 2019 Blog Hop

It's the first Friday of the month, so that means we are back with the All Star Tutorial Bundle Blog Hop. 

I enjoyed experimenting with watercolour for my tutorial, so I thought I will continue the theme into today's hop - it's a different card and technique, but features a watercolour element.



I must say, I was terrified to try this technique, but absolutely adore the outcome! It's really simple to do too - ink up your stamp (I've used the tree from Winter Woods), spritz your watercolor paper, spritz your inked image, then stamp... and then magic before your eyes, isn't it wonderful?



I'm normally into fine lines and details, but the randomness of the watercoloured tree blows my mind, I love it! I also double stamped the sentiment (from Merry Christmas to All), first in Cherry Cobbler, then in Golden Glitz, the shimmer is just gorgeous in real life (my photo doesn't give justice) - at first glance it tricks your eyes and may look a little blurry, but then …
