January Stamp n’ Hop Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop & our very first for 2023 where it is all about the lovely products from 2023 January-February Sale-a-Bration.

We are a group of SU! Demos from all over the world sharing our love of Stampin’ Up!  Feel free to join us if you like, but we do ask that you be a current SU! Demo & that you use current SU! products.

You may have arrived from Gez’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!

For my project I decided to try & use some of the gorgeous papers for males so I had to look at them all from a different angle.  I think I have succeeded but you be the judge.

The paper is from the lovely Level 1 Dainty Flowers DSP which you can earn for FREE when spenidng $90 in my Online Store.

 Again I challenged myself to team the paper up with something I already had & the Whiskey Business Stamp Set was just that.  It is also one of my favourites.

The images were stamped onto Basic White Cardstock prior to being coloured & blended with Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Combo, fussy cut & adhere to the centre of the DSP panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped with Night of Navy Ink while the base card is Crushed Curry.  The colours have been taken from the colours in the DSP Pack.

Dandy Designs DSP by Stampin’ Up!

G’Day Friends,

I’m sharing the card we created in our Stamp & Create FB Live yesterday where we played with the Level 2, Sale-a-Bration Dandy Designs DSP.  Much to my surprise, I am loving the designs & colours of these papers.  The colours are for male, female, kids & babies.  In fact anyone & everyone.  It is just perfect for all occasions.

I’m not sure what this Fun Fold is called but be careful, be very careful as it is pretty addictive.  The hardest part of the whole fold is deciding on what Papers to use!

Now I know what you’re thinking, “Blue & Green should neer be seen!”  But in this case, Pool Party & Granny Apple Green go so well together, don’t you think?

  Check out the colours on that owl?  He is from the Level 1, Sale-a-Bration, Adorable Owls Stamp Set.  The colours are Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green & Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Blends.

All the measurements will be posted once I’ve sorted them out.

In the meantime, click on the video to see how I create my card.

Framed Florets Bundle by Stampin’ Up!

G’Day Friends,

Today I sm sharing a card created when we were able to pre-order the Fitting Florets Collection before being released with the new 2023 January-April Mini Catalogue.  In saying that some of the product in the Collection is for a limited time so once it’s gone, it’s gone!

Luckily the Framed Florets are hanging around for us to play with!  It’s such a pretty bundle with the lovely & easy flowers to colours, the varity of different oval frames & not to mention the gorgeous sentiments in the Stamp Set.  I love it!

My card is an easy one, but one that I’m happy with especilaly if you love blue, Balmy Blue, ie. The colours in the Fitting Florets DSP are simply gorgeous & blend so well together.

The flower has been coloured & blended with Blamy Blue Stampin’ Blend Combo while the leaf was die cut from Night of Navy Cardstock.  The sentiment was stamped in Night of Navy Ink.  The card was finished off with Metallic Mesh Ribbon & Silver Pearls from the Festive Pearls Pack.

The piece of Pumpki Pie DSP was adhered onto a layer of Very Vanilla Cardstock prior to being embossed with the lovely Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.

The flowers are from my favourite Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set, stamped with Pumpin Pie Ink & coloured with Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Combo.

The basket has been coloured & blended with Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Combo.

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.

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.
