Thank you for joining me today as I am once again playing along with the March Stamp ‘N Hop blog hop.
We are a group of SU! Demos from all over the world sharing their love of Stampin’ Up! You are able to join us if you like, but we do ask that you are a current SU! Demo & that you use current SU! products.
I’m first cab off the rank, so to speak but you may have come from Cheryl’s blog where I am sure you enjoyed her lovely creation.
This month is all about “Easter”. This is the perfect time to get a head start on your Easter projects.
Welcome to the Top Ten Winners Blog Hop! Do you remember my post from a couple of weeks ago asking for you to vote? Check it out by clicking on “Teacher’s Gifts”. Thank you to every one of you who took the time to vote – it worked! Because of your votes, myself & other lucky talented Demonstrators get to hop along with Kylie (Australia’s #1 Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator). I feel very honoured to be among this group, so thank you once again!
You are visiting from Corinne Blakewho is from the USA. I do hope you enjoyed Connie’s lovely creation.
Last month the theme was Teacher’s Gifts. Well, for this blog hope, it is the same theme but creating a new item. I did started out with butterflies in my head but now that I’ve finished it, they do look like funny sort of butterflies. Yep, I picked up the wrong item, but never mind, I am happy with the project & more than happy with the colours.
The leaves were stamped onto a scrap piece of Whisper white CS, first with Lemon Lime Twist, then with Old Olive, punched with the Leaf Punch, scored down the middle to give them dimensional before adhering to the flowers. They are from the Painted Harvest Stamp Set. Sorry the photo doesn’t really do them justice.
For my card, I created another flower using the above steps, layered the embossed Card onto a piece of Daffodil Delight CS& then to the Base Card – Whisper White. The leaves were created the same way as the crate.
I’m pretty happy with the end result even though the flowers were meant to be butterflies. A happy mistake in this instance.
Until I am back into the swing of things I am keeping today’s post very short but I am sharing with you a couple of gifts I created using the “Wood Crate” Framelits, Page 212 of the 2017 Annual Catalogue.
I did these for a Expo I attended a couple of weeks ago & much to my surprise they proved very popular, especially to the kids. I say this because I don’t usually do this sort of thing but I do think they were such a hit because they may have been a little different.

My card was one I had started playing with a couple of weeks ago & has been sitting on my desk in bits & pieces for a couple of weeks now. Instead of starting from scratch I challenged myself to use what I had started so I sat down & then bang, it hit me. The flowers from the “Wood Words” Stamp Set were perfect as they remind me of Thailand. The colours I didn’t have to change at all as I had gone with Berry Burst & Lemon Lime TwistInks & Card & I think they are the perfect colours……
I do hope all the Demonstrators who have earned the Thailand Incentive Trip are enjoying themselves as it is such a lovely country.
There is a free tutorial on how I created my card by clicking on the link below. It gives you all the product used plus the measurements (metric & imperial).
