Ink.Stamp.Share. August Blog Hop - Mini Catalogue



Hello and welcome to my Blog!

You may have started your blog hop journey here or have arrived from Cindy's Blog, however I know you will enjoy hopping from post to post as you get to see what other Stampin' Up! demonstrators have been creating using the new Stampin' Up! August to December mini catalogue for the Ink.Stamp.Share. August Blog Hop.

This week I had a rather large amount of photo’s arrive from Freeprints and it made me realise I had better start scrapbooking or I will never catch up if I keep ordering them and doing nothing with them. 

Stampin Up Brightlty Gleaming SPeciality Designer Series Paper
So, for this blog hop the theme was products from the new mini catalogue so I decided to use the gorgeous Gleaming Brightly Speciality Designer Series Paper.

Once I chose the paper, I decided  to use Stampin' Up! Poppy Moments Dies for some lovely 3D flowers.  I could have spent ages amking loads of these flowers as it was truly addictive and a great way to use up scraps of card and paper.



The flowers were quite a bold statement on the page! I loved them...










Now I have made this page, I feel I need to start scrapbooking more pages so I can make a dent in the photographs that I keep getting printed and get my scrap on!

Here is the supply list of the products that I used in this scrapbook page:

Paper Pumpkin UK Style

Welcome and thank you for stopping by to visit my Paper Pumpkin UK style blog hop, here I am again hopping with other independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators worldwide on the Paper Pumpkin themed Crafty Blog Hop. 

In the UK we are not yet fortunate enough to have a monthly Paper Pumpkin subscription, however we do to get one-off specials, currently we have Paper Pumpkin Box of Sunshine (for more info please click here).

The theme of this blog hop is World’s Greatest Paper Pumpkin kit, and as we did not receive this box in the UK it was time to literally think 'outside the box! (Sorry, I couldn’t resist that!)

My father will be ninety years old next month and I thought he would be the perfect person for me to create for as to me he is the World’s Greatest!  He did everything possible to ensure that I never wanted for anything and has been a fantastic Grandad and Great Grandad!

I knew instantly I wanted to make my Dad’s birthday card, but then all creativity and inspiration disappeared as soon as I realised I was making a MALE card, so I just had a to make it up as I went along.  Why do I find make cards so hard? 

The bonus of using the Paper Pumpkin kit for inspiration was that the colours were all there for me.

In addition to making this card I wanted to make two other projects so I decided on a rosette badge and a bottle tag. 


Stampin Up family party 90th birthday rosetteStampin-Up-family-party-wine-bottle-tag

For once I am organised in having the tag crafted before I have bought the bottle of brandy, so I had to use my bottle of bubbly.  I truly enjoyed making the rosette badge and it was completed in less than twenty minutes.


Please see below the supply list of the products used in these projects:

Gorgeous Posies by Stampin' Up! Crafty Blog Hop

 

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and welcome.

This is my first time participating in the Crafty Blog Hop and I eager to see what everyone else has crafted with this month’s theme - Gorgeous Posies Card Kit by Stampin’ Up! 

When I first saw this kit, I knew instantly that I just had to have it, I loved the choice of colours with Blackberry Bliss being one of my favourite colours, but I also love how well the colours all work together.

As soon as I buy a Stampin’ Up! kit I always create one of each design following the instructions, then I will change it up slightly for my version.  After that anything goes as this kit had four designs and sixteen cards in total so this left me with plenty of scope.

For today’s Crafty Blog hop I will be showing you four of my favourite cards that made using the products provided, it was great fun mixing them up. 


With each of these cards I changed how they were done from the instructions, I fussy cut, chopped the cards, raised them up using Stampin' Up! Mini Dimensionals and swapped greetings onto different die-cuts.

I was enjoying myself so much that I got carried away and made a total of twenty-four cards (I used additional Stampin’ Up! cardstock to create extra blanks) and I would have been more then happy to carry on creating as I still have elements of the kit left over.

Please see below the supply list of the products used in these projects:

Oh my! How lovely is this Gorgeous Posies kit by Stampin' Up!?

Introducing the Gorgeous Posies Semi Inclusive Card Kit


I just wanted to introduce you to this semi-inclusive card kit. Stampin’ Up! have created a truly stunning semi-inclusive card kit called Gorgeous Posies that was launched back in June in their annual catalogue.  What I love about this set is that they also released the Gorgeous Posies stamp set to be used with this kit, but can also be used as a standalone stamp set.


When you receive this kit, it is all packed inside a lovely keepsake box that can be used again once all the cards have been completed.  This lovely kit has everything that you need to create sixteen cards (four of each designs).   The keepsake box contains card bases, co-ordinating envelopes, die-cuts, ribbon and twine.

Stampin’ Up! have also provided a full colour instructions sheet so you will be able to recreate the cards, or you can be creative and use the products to do your own designs.  In addition to the kit and stamp set you will need to use the co-ordinating Stampin' Up! ink pads

I truly enjoyed using this set and at the end I still have several elements left over to be used in other crafting creations.  Why not pop back tomorrow as I will be posting again showing you what I created using this kit as part of the Crafty Blogs Hop.

Please see below the supply list of the products used in these projects:

Ink.Stamp.Share. Special Blog Hop - August



So what have I been working on lately?

First of all, thank you for visiting my blog from Cindy's blog and secondly, welcome to my first Blog Hop with Ink.Stamp.Share. I was truly excited to be taking part in this Special Blog Hop and it is here you will also see fellow Demonstrators showing what they have been working on for the past few weeks using various Stampin' Up! products.

So what have I been working on lately?  Recently I was asked by my Father to create two sympathy cards to send overseas (had to omit Dimensionals to keep down costs).



I knew instantly which Stampin’ Up! stamp set I wanted to use as I had wanted to buy this as soon as it was launched last year - Very Versailles.  I love the script and the elegance of the frame and the leaves and I knew this set would involve me using gold Stampin’ emboss powder as soon as I saw it, even after all these years I still smile when I watch it melt and see the finished item.  


The frame involved me doing some good ole’ fussy cutting (it’s like Marmite – you either love fussy cutting or you hate it) which I love doing, I find it so therapeutic.  


Due to these Sympathy cards being sent to the United States, I had to reduce the thickness of the layers, I usually get a bit Dimensionals happy but this time I only used them on the heat embossed frame  The frame involved me doing some good ole’ fussy cutting (it’s like Marmite – you either love fussy cutting or you hate it) which I love doing, I find it so therapeutic. 

To show just how versatile this stamp set is, I also created a ‘40th Birthday’ card, a ‘Thank You’ card and a ‘Bride & Groom’ card using the same colourways as the Sympathy cards.  They needed a little something extra added to give them and extra bit of bling, so I randomly (I struggle with ‘random’ so I call it ‘organised random’) placed several Metallic Pearls on these cards.


Here are the Stampin' Up! products that I used to create these cards:



Thank you and I hope you have enjoyed visiting my blog, please hop over to Kirstie's blog to see more inspiring work.
