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.

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.

Rings of Love DSP

G’Day Friends,

Today is the last day to take advantage of the wonderful Sale-a-Bration we’ve been offered throughout July & August.  I’m not sure which has been my favourite but I do know the lovely Rings of Fire DSP, Level 1 is high on the list.  It also coordinates with the Ringed with Nature Bundle from the July-December Mini Catalogue.  Do you have a favourite?

My card is one I share on our Weekly FB Live, Mystery Stamping  a couple of weeks ago & suddenly remembered that I hadn’t share it with you.

I wanted to share both sides of the DSP so what better way than to do so by using both sides of 1 piece of paper.  Oh, notice the house?  It’s from the same pack of papers & all I’ve done is fussy cut it.

To check out the Video, click on this link.

Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop – July 2022

I’m still playing with the Splendid Day Suite Collection so thought I would continue with the theme with this blog hop.  As this hop is all about our customer Thank You cards I wanted to do something special while at the same time, keeping them simple.

I wanted to use something different for the sentiment on the cards, so I went with the sentiments in the Stamp Set – perfect for lots of occasions.  I am loving the soft colours of Soft Sea Foam & Pool Party in ths Suite.

The card has been finished off with a couple of the lovely Brushed Metallic Dots.

Spendid Day Suite Collection by Stampin’ Up!

G’Day Friends,

With the weather the way it has been this week, it has been the perfect time to just sit & craft, too wet & cold to get out in the garden.

My little dog has not been getting out of bed until about 9ish, when we go for our walk, she has brekkie & retires back to bed until about 2ish & then it is time for another walk.

I’ve been playing with the gorgeous Splendid Day Suite from the new Mini & wow, are you going to love creating with it too!   It’s simply stunning & perfect for all occasions.

I actually did a live for this card yesterday showing how to use your scraps of DSP.  Mind you it completely turned out different to what I had in mind as it just didn’t go to plan – my part – but we battled on & got there in the end.  It is probably a great design to complete your half finished projects too.

I am loving the fact that you are able to stamp on the opposite side of the foil sheets, which is exactly what I did here.

I will be honest & say that the image was going to be coloured with Stampin’ Blends but after the disaster of the chopping the DSP, I thought better not to push my luck lol.  If you watch the video, you will see why.

G’Day Friends,

Thank you so much for popping by today!  It is always very much appreciated.

It’s Day 5 of the Feature of the Week!  Thank you so much for your emails saying how happy you are with this returning.

This week has all been about the lovely Friends are like Seashells from the Annual Catalogue & one of my favourites.

These are the cards we created in our FB Live the other day where we played with a 6 x 6 DSP One Sheet Wonder.  It was an easy layout but one with lots of variations.  I’ve only created 3 projects but as I’ve said, the list is endless.

I’ve used Starry Sky Cardstock for the Base Cards on all cards along with a layer of Basic White.  The only change on all cards are the images & colours!  The images have been stamped in Highland Heather, Mango Melody, Old Olive Inks while the sentiments were all stamped in Starry sky Ink.  A piece of the lovely Metallic Woven Starry Sky Ribbon were added along with the gorgeous Iridescent Rhinestones – oh how I love these Rhinestones!

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.
