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.

Stamp Set – Oceanfront, Inspired Thoughts

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

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.

Seas the Day

G’Day Friends,

This is where we get to share 2 projects created with a nominated Stamp Set or Bundle.

Throughout March we wil be sharing projects created with the gorgeous Seas the Day Bundle.  It’s from the current January-June Mini Catalogue.

I will be honest & say that this Bundle has been sitting on my shelf since my pre-order BUT now that I’ve had a play, I can see myself playing lots over the next few days & weeks.  The images & dies are to “die” for.

You may recognise my card from the Catalogue, as I decided to case the card on P38 but with my own spin on things.

There is a lot of sponging going on with my card but nevertheless, I am happy with it all.  It may look a lot but believe me, it didn’t take long at all.  In fact, I am thinking seriously of creating a video in the next couple of days on how I’ve actually created it, so stay tuned.

Edit – This is the video created to show how I created my card.

Supplies –

Stamp Set – Seas the Day

Inks – Pale Papaya, Old Olive, So Saffron, Balmy Blue
