Suite Showcase #8 - Enjoy the Adventure

Hello and welcome,

Just want to say thank you for popping by to look at the second Suite Showcase of April 2023, these truly do come around quick.  

As an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator it has been a very busy and exciting month as we have so much exciting things happening - a colour refresh where there will be some current colours leaving, some old colours returning and some new colours.  We also got to preview and order from the new Annual Catalogue. I will be sharing more information on this over the next few weeks.

For this Suite Showcase we are showing you what we have made using the lovely Memories and More Cards that also have co-ordinating Cards and Envelopes too.  Both of these are reduced in price until the 1st May 2023 where they will disappear when the new Annual Catalogue will be released.

Here are both of the products that I used for this months Suite Showcase, I truly did enjoy using these and so far I have produced five cards.


I loved creating card one, it involved me cutting the flower and greeting from one of the small 3” x 4” cards and using a strip off another card to create a banner on top of a 4” x 6” card. 

These were attached using several Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to give different heights.  

Once I had completed this I glued the topper onto a Basic Black card blank and added a bit of bling with the very versatile Rhinestone Basic Jewels.



For card two, I wanted to show the lovely Memories and More card blank. 

I chose to cut up another one of the small 3” x 4” cards and then placed it on another small card as this was perfect for the background, I inked around the edge of it before placing the greetings on top.  


Once I had attached the topper to the base card, I added a little jewel as the finishing touch.

Making card three was so easy, as I used a card blank and I then cut up two 3” x 4” cards and used the dog and hearts that were leftover from card two.  
I also added a sticker strip of hearts with Rhinestone Jewels to finish the card off.

You just never know when you will need 'Thinking of You' cards so I decided to make two cards using one of the small 3" x 4" cards and one of the 4" x 6" inch cards.

   

On card four (left), I just cut up the 3” x 4” card and used two of the flower stickers and added Rhinestone jewels to finish it off. 

With card five (right), I cut the strip out of the middle of the card and attached the top and strip onto a Basic Black card blank, rotated the bottom of the card so the flowers side was showing.  

Again, I finished off this card with a sticker and two Rhinestone Jewels.

Suite Showcase #7 - Rain or Shine

Happy Easter to you all,

So hoppy to see you all as you join Joanna (Purrfectly Creative) and I for another Suite Showcase.  I hope you are as egg-cited as I am for the slowly improving weather as I must admit I'm a bit tired of being cold and need to feel some sun to defrost me.  

You will never know how much I have been looking forward to using the Rain or Shine Suite from the Mini Catalogue since I saw it iback in November and I am super happy that this stamp set, dies and embossing folder will be carrying over into the new Annual Catalogue which will be out on 2nd May 2023.

For my first card I wanted to use the sheet of rain effect Designer Series Paper (DSP) to stamp directly onto it using Stampin' Markers to colour the flowers onto the stamp before stamping onto the paper.  


Bonus of these dies is that they cut out some of the images on the DSP so they are great for making quick card making.

When you are a Nana to four girlie girls, it means you get to use lots of pinks, so I decided to make an Easter Card for one of them for the Suite Showcase.  As always, the Alphabet á la Mode dies were prefect for this card as it allowed a different way for making the greeting. 

I chose to use another bunny for the Easter Bunny stamp set and with a bit of fussy cutting I had a little girlie bunny who just looks lovely with a little bow.  Easter with children would not be Easter without a few eggs and a carrot for the Easter Bunny.


Card three was fun to create as I got to make another shaker window.  This time I wanted to use the Easter Bunny stamp set and punch.  The Easter Bunny bundle is so cute, egg-actly what I needed to create a fun card, especially the carrots which were stamped onto Mango Melody and Old Olive cardstock and attached to each other.

Fair to say that I got a bit carried away when I was crafting and no surprise that I got a bit side-tracked too.  If you would like to see what I created then you will find it by clicking this link and it will take you to the Rain or Shine Scrapbook Page's post that went live first thing today.  

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


Here are the colours that were used in these projects.
Well I hope you enjoy looking at what I have created and I hope to see you again for the next Suite Showcase on 21st April.  Pop over to Joanna's blog to see what she has created using this suite.
