Across the Waves Blog Hop

G’Day Friends,

Thank you & welcome to our monthly Across the Waves Blog Hop.  May is all about flowers & boy are there some lovely product in the new Annual Catalogue featuring flowers.

You may be starting with me or have come from Christy’s blog where she shared her lovely project.  Don’t forget you can visit all the other blogs on today’s hop by clicking on the Blog Roll at the bottom of this post.

I’ve been playing with the lovely Design a Daydream DSP from the new Catalogue.  It can be yours too when spending $250 or over.  I am loving the colours in these papers.  Looking at my card today, I’ve just realised that the image I’ve used is very close to the image in the Art Gallery Stamp Set which is what I’ve used to create my card.

I’ve teamed the paper with Old Olive, Blackberry Bliss & Petal Pink.

The 1/8″ Cottom Ribbon Combo Pack from the current Mini Catalogue is perfect for this project.

I’ve finished it off with the Pearls Basic Jewels.

Friends are like Seashells

G’Day Friends,

Thank you so much for dropping by.

My card today is one we created in our Mystery Stamping a couple of weeks ago & thought I would share it with you.

I’ve been playing with the Soft Pastels of late & WOW, WOW, WOW!  I can’t seem to put the things down.

If you haven’t see them in the Annual Catalogue, do yourself a favour & grab them today, as you need these little beauties in your collection.  I love them so much that I’m planning on doing a series of classes with them, but more about that later.

Again it is an easy layout & one which you can use over & over while resulting in a completely different look.  But then again, that is what Mystery Stamping is all about – simple, easy but with a little bit of mystery!!!

To watch the video on how I created my card, click on the photo below.

Of course, when you have a great layout that you love & use over & over, there is no stopping.  I then shared a 2nd card I created that morning with different supplies.

My 2nd card I shared using the same layout has been created with the lovely limited Waves of the Ocean Collection.  This Collection will no longer be available after May 2.

Cardstock is Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy & Basic White.  The images have been stamped in Soft Suede, Basic Black & NIght of Navy Inks.  Of course the Waves of the Ocean DSP is from the Collection.

I do hope you have enjoyed what Robbie & I have shared with you over the last few months.  Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my FB Page.  It’s always so appreciated.

For the month of April, we are showcasing the lovely Oceanfront Stamp Set.  You need this set in your collection, believe me!

This set makes it so easy to create lovely projects with minimum supplies & effort!

Belle & I were out & about early on our walk this morning.  In fact, it was still dark when we left home, but by the time we hit the beach, I was struck with the most amazing sunrise with the sun just starting to appear.  Can I just say, most days the sunrise is amazing but some more so than others.

As I sat down to create my card, I knew I wanted to try & capture the image into my card.  I think I have!

The circle was die cut with the Layering Circles Dies before being embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  To create the scene, the images were stamped onto a piece of Bsaic White Cardstock before being adhered to the back of the circle.

The sentiment is from the Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set.

Supplies –

Stamp Set – Oceanfront, Inspired Thoughts

Inks – Memento Tuxedo Black, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green, Calypso Coral

Cardstock – Basic White, Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral

Colouring Tools – Sponge Daubers

This set makes it so easy to create lovely projects with minimum supplies & effort!

I wanted to see if I could create something a little different wih this set using only the grass images.  I think I have achieved it, but you decide for yourself.

I’ve actually used 3 techniques on this card – can you guess what they are?  Check below to find out what they are…..

March Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop

G’Day Friends,

Welcome to the Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop for March!

We are a group of SU! Demos from all over the world sharing our love of Stampin’ Up! You are free to join us if you like, but we do ask that you be a current SU! Demo & that you use current SU! products.

This month we are showcasing all the lovely Packaging that Stampin’ Up!® provide for us in the Catalogues or we could create our own.

You may have arrived from Robbie’s blog where she shared her lovely creation.  If you are starting from my blog, all you have to do is click on the arrow or the Blog Roll below.

I decorated a couple of the Sweet Little Boxes from the 2022 January-June Mini Catalogue, Page 9 for a Stamp Camp.  These ended up being pillow gifts for everyone who purchased the Hello Ladybug Stamp Camp.  They were filled with the fun little beetle chocolates.

A piece of the Heart & Home DSP was adhered to a piece of Basic White before being embossed with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder.  Can you believe I don’t have the Hive 3D Embossing Folder?  This was adhered to a piece of Misty Moonlight & then to the front of the box.

The daisy from the Hello Ladybug Stamp Set was stamped in Daffodil Delight Ink, punched with the Medium Daisy Punch, layered together & then to the right side of the box with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

The sentiment from the same set was stamped in Misty Moonlight Ink, die cut with the banner die from the Tasteful Labels Dies before being adhered to the top of the box.

A couple of White Classic Matte Dots were coloured with the Dark Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blend before being randomly adhered to the front & centre of the daisy.
