Kylie’s International Blog Hop

 

G’Day Stampers.

Once again I am taking part in Kylie’s International Highlights Hop for February.

This month the theme is Encouragement.

I love sending out encouragement cards or “Just Because”.  Isn’t this one of the reasons we create?  Do you know of anyone you can send encouragement to?  Maybe a Get Well Soon – or WOW, You are Amazing, even a Thank You card?  I’m sure they would appreciate it.

I’ve had bits sitting on my desk that were waiting to be used.  They were either from previous cards that didn’t suit or just sitting waiting to be used.  So instead of ditching the pieces I thought I would try & create with what I had.  All I had to do was the Base Card!

The background has been embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder.  The image is from the new set in the 2019 OccasionsAll That You Are“.  I think this set is perfect for our Stampin’ Blends.  The sentiment is from “Broadway Birthday” which was punched with the Classic Label Punch.

By clicking on the link below you will be able to download a free tutorial to create your own card.  The tutorial includes both the products used & the measurements (metric & imperial).

To vote for me, head onto Kylie’s Blog.  While there, why not check out all the lovely creations created by the other Demos who are playing along this month.

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop

all-that-you-are---close-up

G’Day Stampers,

Once again I am hoping along with the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop where we have an Extraordinary Blog Hop showcasing the yummy goodies from the Sale-A-Brationlogo & the Occasions Catalogues.  Why not join us.

I will be honest with you & say I had such a hard time deciding what to use for this hop but then remembered that I had a lovely box of goodies delivered yesterday I had forgotten to open so I decided to play with the stamp set “All That You Are” & team it up with the gorgeous Foil Sheets from the SAB Brochure.

I decided to highlight the Foils Sheets even further by Dry Embossing a piece of the Lovely Lipstick with the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder.

all-that-you-are---insideMy images have been coloured with Stampin’ Blends – flowers with Lovely Lipstick Combo & the leaves with Granny Apple Green ComoI’m happy with result as it makes the Foil Sheet pop.

To finish the flowers I applied Clear Wink of Stella to the tops which brings the colour out even more.  I finished it off with a couple of Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the sentiment.

G’Day Stampers.

Once again I am taking part in Kylie’s International Highlights Hop for January.

Thank you to everyone who voted for me last month as I happened to be one of the Top Ten winners.  

This month the theme is Encouragement.

Do you know anyone you can send encouragement to?  Maybe a Get Well Ssoon – or WOW, You are Amazing, even a Thank You card?  This is a great way to think of something that you want to build up and give some love.  Another option that I use a lot is “Just Because”. 

Do you recognize my card?  I will be honest with you & say my inspiration came from the front cover of the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.  It just goes to show that inspiration can come from everywhere.

bloom-by-bloom---insideTo create my card I’ve used my favourite DSP from the Occasions Catalogue & that is the Gingham GalaI’ve teamed it up with a stamp set that I just can’t seem to get enough of & that is the Bloom by Bloom set.  I didn’t really think I would like it but oh how I was wrong!

By clicking on the link below you will be able to download a free tutorial to create your own card.  The tutorial includes both the products used & the measurements (metric & imperial).

Hey, Friend

Beautiful-Day-3---Close-Up

 

G’Day Stampers,

I am sharing with you a card we created sometime ago in one of our Friday classes using the Stamparatus.  The class was actually divided into 2 groups with each group creating a different card.  At the end of the class both groups had created the 2 cards.

To create our card, we used the small cluster of flowers from the Beautiful Day Stamp Set Beautiful-Day-3---Insidewhich was stamped in Rich Razzleberry.

Stamp ‘N Hop for November

Oh-So-Eclectic---Close-Up

G’Day Stampers,

Thank you for joining me today as I am playing along with the Stamp ‘N Hop blog hop for November where we get to Case (Copy & Share Everything) the Annual Catalogue.

It is a group of SU! Demos from all over the world sharing their love of Stampin’ Up! You November---Casing-the-Annuaare able to join us if you like, but we do ask that you are a current SU! Demo & that you use current SU! products.

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

I couldn’t decide what to do for this challenge as I often use the SU! Catalogues for inspiration & often case them too.  I decided to go with the Oh So Eclectic Stamp Set along Oh-So-Eclectic---Insidewith the Eclectic Layers Thinlits as I needed to create a special birthday card (it’s not like I don’t have any in my stash!)  You can find the card I cased on Page 157.

By clicking on the link below, you will be able to download your free tutorial to create your own card.  The tutorial includes a list of supplies & measurements (metric & imperial).  You may notice a bit of a difference in the layout of the tutorial as I am slowly doing updates to everything including my blog.

Thanks again for visiting my blog.  Don’t forget to check out all the lovely Stampin’ Up! Demos hopping along – below the photo.  When visiting, please leave a little love on their blogs.

Next up is Andre.  All you need to do is click the NEXT arrow.  In the event that you get lost, there is a Roll Call of everyone playing along.

International Highlights November Blog Hop

c2ab7-international2bhighlights2bheader2bvote2bfav

G’Day Stampers.

Once again I am taking part in Kylie’s International Highlights Hop for November.  It has been some time since I’ve played along with a hop, especially this one.

We are celebrating 30 years Stampin’ Up!® this month so what better way say THANK YOU than to #MakeaCardSendaCard to Shelli to thank her for what Stampin’ Up!® has Jar-of-Love-1meant to me.  Without her determination and hard work to keep this company going none of us would have met one another, been inspired to do more and fulfilled so many awesome things.  We have so much to be grateful for!

I am taking a break from my 12 Days of Christmas to play along with Kylie.  I will be back tomorrow so be sure to pop back to check the remaining days out.

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.

My card I am sharing with you today is one we created in class a few weeks ago using the Stamparatus.  It is a very clean & simple card but one that I like.  We played with the Jar of Love Stamp Set, along with Everyday Jars Framelits.  I am not normally a yellow person, but I am liking the Daffodil Delight & Melon Mango flowers which have been teamed up with Call Me Clover for the leaves.

If you click on the link below, you will be able to download a free tutorial to create your own card.  The tutorial includes both the products used & the measurements (metric & imperial).

Don’t forget to head on over to Kylie’s Blog to check all the other lovely creations.  while there, vote for your favourites & leave a little love.
