Vintage Christmas & Mystery Stamping

G’Day Friends,

Yesterday we did a little bit of Mystery Stamping as we hadn’t done any for some time.

I took the clues from a card I had created a week or so ago & went with it.

The Cardstock is Evening Evergreen while the Ink is Crumb Cake & Cherry Cobbler.

The paper is the lovely Lights Aglow Specialty 6 x 6 from the current Mini Catalogue.

It has been finished off with the Festive Pearls also from the current Mini Catalogue.

Thank you so much for dropping by.  It is always very much appreciated.

Today I am sharing our Create Weekly #19 Sketch layout.  I share a layout each Sunday & the on the Monday a video is shared creating a card with the layout along with 1 or 2 alternate ideas.  They are always nice & easy which is what it is all about plus it’s a great way of getting your mojo going with the added bonus of being lots of fun.

For my card today I played with one of everyone’s favoutite- the Hues of Happiness Suite which is in the Annual Catalogue.  Even though I am not a Bright’s person, I am loving all the bright colours in this Suite.

The Base Card is Pool Party & teamed up with the lovely So Saffron flower which has been die cut from the gorgeous DSP.  Don’t you love it when we can do that?

By clicking on the link below, you will be able to see 2 alternate ideas created with the same sketch layout.

September Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop

G’Day Friends,

Welcome to the Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop for September!  Where does the time go?

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.

September is about Autumn or Spring depending on which part of the world you live in.  Here in the South Pacific we are entering Spring.  The birds are chirping, the flowers are full of live & it is raining cats & dogs!

You may have arrived from Cheryl’s blog where she shared her lovely creation.  If you are starting from my blog, all you have to do is click on the Blog Roll below in case you get lost!

When I laid eyes on the Cheerful Basket Stamp Set, a few ideas immediately popped into my head.  One of which is this.  I’m not sure if I’ve carried it off but I’m happy with the end result.

A little masking, a little colouring with the fabulous Stampin’ Blends along with a pop of colour in Tahitian Tide & of course, Clear Wink of Stella & I think it shouts spring.  What do you think?

To tone down the Tahitian Tide colours, I decided to layer the Basic White layer onto Petal Pink & then to a Crumb Cake Base Card.

It was finished off with a couple of Petal Pink Elegant Faceted Gems.

If you live in Australia, click on the photo below to purchase this Suite.  Don’t forget to use the September Host Code – WVPZMJKG  –  if your order is under $250.

Wonderful World Bundle

G’Day Friends,

A couple of months ago, we played arouned with a Fun Fold for one of our Mystery Stamping sessions.

I wanted to highlight the lovely Wonderful World Bundle which included the DSP & the coordinating Stamp Set.

The flowers were stamped with Fresh Freesia Ink prior to daubing a little of Rich Razzleberry Ink around the edges with a Sponge Dauber.  Don’t they look so lovely & soft?

Look at that pretty belly band?  Of course, you have to have matchy matchy, right?  So I added a small piece of the lovely DSP to to the inside too.

Inspirations in Ink August Blog Hop

G’Day Friends,

Thank you for dropping by & welcome to our monthly Inspirations in Ink Blog Hop.

We’re a small group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world who come together each month to showcase a theme & share inspiration for you to create.

You may be starting with me, Vicky Wright Australia or have come from Robbie’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.

So sad to say that today is the last day of Sale-a-Bration & the last day to grab theses cute litte hippos when placing a $90 order.  I’m not sure what has been your favourite but I have loved the Hippest Hippos along with the Hippo Dies.  So much fun, so many ideas, only 2 hands!

Who says Hipps can’t be blue?

Do you ever start out with something in mind but then end up a totally different finish –  nothing like what you were thinking of?  Well, this is one of those projects!

A piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock was embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder before lightly & gently dragging Crumb Cake Ink Pad over the top, first up & down & then from side to side.

Have you noticed their little bellies?   I did a little Paper Piercing with the lovely Splendid Day DSP by stamping 2 images direct onto the paper, fussy cutting the little bellies before adhering to the coloured images.

If you live in Australia, click on the photo below to purchase this Suite.  Don’t forget to use the August Host Code – DP3JVVSY –  if your order is under $250.
