Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop

G’Day stampers,

Today I am hopping along with the June Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop.

We are a group of SU! Demos from all over the world sharing their love of Stampin’ Up! June-2019---Hello-to-the-ne 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.

Oh boy, do we have a real treat for you this month as it is a great big hello to the brand new 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue!  I sure hope you are inspired with all the fantastic projects you will see as you hop along with us.

You may have arrived from Stacey’s blog where I’m sure you would have seen her fantastic project.

I chopped & changed my mind so many times  I ended up confusing myself with all the lovely new stuff I could pre-order.  In the end I decided to keep it simple & showcase the gorgeous new Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack along with the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes.  I can see myself using these a lot during the year & are already on my list for re-ordering.

Card #1

I adhered a small card from the Memories & More Card Pack onto a piece of Petal Pink Magnolia-Lane-Card-Pack---ICardstock before adhering it to the centre of the large Card.  The sentiment has been adhered to a piece of Whisper White Cardstock for more support, cut back to size & then adhered to a piece of Mossy Meadow Cardstock which has been punched with the Classic Label Punch before adhering it to the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimenisonals.

I wrapped a piece of Mossy Meadow Twine which is from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack, around my fingers & adhered it the back of a die cut flower using a Mini Glue Dot.  Once again, I adhered the die cut flower to a piece of scrap Whisper White for more support & fussy cut around the flower.  The flower was then popped over the Twine with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

It was finished with a couple of Pearls to the Card Front.

Magnolia-Lane-Card-Pack

Card #2

Again a small card from the Memories & More Card Pack was adhered onto a piece of Petal Pink Cardstock before adhering it to the centre of the large card. The sentiment was again adhered to a piece of whisper White, cut back to size & adhered to the Card Front with Mini Stampin’ Dimenisonals.

It was finished with a couple of Pearls to the Card Front.

For the insides of the cards, a decorative strip from the Card Pack was adhered onto a piece of Whisper White prior to adhering inside the Base Card.

The cards are very easy to create but oh boy, are they gorgeous in real life.

I will be sharing the remainder of the cards created during he week so be sure to pop back to see them all.

I couldn’t decide what to do for this challenge as I often use the SU!

432. Today Blooms just for You – Better With You

Better-with-You

 

Sending Smiles …

… Across the Miles.

Today’s card is one created in class a couple of weeks ago – I seem to be way behind in sharing our cards with you.  It is one I cased from the new catalogue, page 35 except I’ve turned my card into an Easel Card.Up-&-Away---Open

We used some of the new colours on the card – Lovely Lipstick, Shaded Spruce & Mint Macaron.  I’m not a green person but I love the colours together with just a touch of the pink. I'[m also very happy that the Lift Me Up Stamp Set & the Up & Away Thinlits were carried over.  You could easily turn this card into one for the male by changing out the Lovely Lipstick colour.

Birthday Blossoms

Birthday-Blooms-1---Close-U

Today’s card is one of the many we created over a month in our class when we played with the Retifom Techniquewhich you can find the tutorial here.

The class was split into pairs which mean we worked on 4 lots of cards at once.  I thought it would be utter chaos but much to my surprise it worked our perfectly & we seemed to fly through the classes in record time.Birthday-Blooms-1---Inside

We used a few of the retiring In Colours to create our card – Emerald Envy & Peekaboo Peach Inks & Cardstock.

This technique is a little addictive as each time you play you will end up with a different look which is what happened in our classes.

Stampin’ Up! Retiring Products Blog Hop

retiringproductsbloghopThank you for joining me today.  I’m pretty excited as this is the first time I’ve been a part of the RemARKably Created Blog Hop which is open to all SU! Demonstrators from around the globe.  I have looked at the hop for a while now & thought this the perfect time to hop along.  This month it is all about Retiring Products!  Thank you so much Janet for making this possible.

As always at the start of a new catalogue year, there is so much that I THINK I am going to miss, but seem to get over very quickly as all the new “stuff” starts to arrive & before I  know it I am once again, busy playing with my new “stuff” that the retired product is long forgotten. 

Rose-Wonder---Close-UpI thought I would share with you one of my all time favourite Sets – Rose Wonder along with the matching Rose Garden Thinlits.  I am sure going to miss these items, but no doubt Stampin’ Up! will have much bigger & better things available for us to purchase.

To start off with I stamped the flower onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, coloured with Pink Pirouette & Old Olive Stampin’ Blends (available once again in the new catalogue) before die cutting the rose outline & adhering over the top of the stamped image.

 

To grab your free tutorial, please click on the link below.

In case you get lost on the hop, there is a list below that you are able to click on to follow along.  Please leave comments to any that you may visit as I’m sure they would appreciate it.  

 

 Once again, thank you for stopping by.  I do hope I have inspired you to start creating whether it be for yourself or for that special person you is lucky enough to receive it.  Be sure to click on the links below so you can see the amazing creations that have been created for you.

 Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Kylie’s International Top Ten February Winners Blog Hop

 

I was one of the lucky ones who made it to the top ten in Kylie’s International Blog Hop last month with this card using the Petal Palette.  Because of your vote, I get to hop along with 9 other lucky Demos.  Thank you to everyone who voted for me.  It is very much appreciated.

Once again our theme is “Sale-a-Bration and Occasions Catalogue Product”..

While creating this card for the hop, it suddenly occurred to me that it could go in the Springtime-Foil-DSP---Flowemail today for a friend who is celebrating her birthday.

I am loving the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP from the SAB 2nd release & available while stocks last.  It is perfect for colouring, fussy cutting, backgrounds & just about everything else you can think of.

I’ve coloured a couple of the flowers from the DSP with Stampin’ Blends, fussy cut & adhered to the card front.  The silver bling is actually Rhinestone Basic Jewels covered with VersaMark & heat set with Silver Emboss Powder.  I wanted something a little different & to match in with this gorgeous paper.

If you click on the link above the card, you will be able to download your free tutorial to create your own card.  It includes a list of products used, measurements (metric & imperial) plus the instructions..

Below the photo, you will find a Roll Call.  All you have to do is click on the names to take you over to their post.  Don’t forget to leave a little “love” while visiting.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

c2ab7-international2bhighlights2bheader2bvote2bfav

G’Day Stampers,

Once again, I am taking part in Kylie’s International Blog Highlights where our theme this month is our favourite Sale-A-Bration Or Occasions Catalogue Product.  This is the perfect time to celebrate, showcase & see all our lovely products!

Not sure of what is Kylie’s International Highlights?   It is where Demonstrators from all around the world take part in a monthly Blog Highlight.  It’s a great way to get to know other Demonstrators & see projects using current Stampin’ Up!® product.

What is so different about this Blog Highlight?  YOU get to vote for your top 5 favourites.  The top ten will then get to take part in an international blog hop with Kylie & other Vote for Me Heretalented successful demonstrators.

What do I do?  All you have to do is click on the “Vote for Me” photo at the side or head on over to Kylie’s Blog, click on the heart in the top right hand side of the picture.

I was playing around with the lovely Petal Passion Suite the other day creating a couple of future classes when an idea sort of popped into my head & of course I had to go for it.  The Suite includes the lovely Petal Palette Stamp Set, Petals & More Thinlits Dies, Petal Passion DSP, Petal Passion Embellishments, Whisper White Organza Ribbon & of course the Petal Pair Embossing Folders.  I’ve used all the mentioned except for the Ribbon.Petal-Palette---Inside-Cher

I’ve kept my card all Whisper White except for touches of Cherry Cobbler which I think only highlights the Whisper White even more.
