I am a very non-traditional Christmas person.  Don’t get me wrong, I love christmas but I am not keen on all the reds & greens. I like to step out of the box a little.  I also like to create what I think suits our area.  So be prepared to see all sorts of cards this month lol.

My card is not what I started out to create.  It sort of took a different turn but I’m happy with the colours & layout.

The Paper is the 2022-2024 Tahitian TIde 6 x 6 which was chopped back to a piece & adhered to a piece of Basic White Cardstock.

The sentiment is from the Very Best Occasions which is just perfect for ALL occasions.

To highlight the paper a little, 2 lines were scored along the top & 3 along the bottom of the DSP.  I love doing this on my cards.  It creates such a big impact.

Stamp ‘N Hop December Blog Hop

G’Day Friends,

Welcome to the Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop for December where it is all about Christmas!

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 Mo’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!

As December is always full on, it is a very short hop this month.  All the same, I’m sure you will find inspiration for your Christmas projects.

I’ve been creating my Christmas Cards with an Australian feel about them.  Not necessarily all the same but same layout with different stamp sets which I will be sharing over the next few days.  It isn’t often that I create multiples of the same card but I love this layout & I love this stamp set!

My cards today have been created with one of my favourite layouts which I think is quick & easy!  I’ve used the 2022-2024 In Colour DSP to create them along with the Sunkissed Stamp Set from the current Mini Catalogue.  This fun set will no longer be available once the Mini finishes.  Shop for this set NOW.

The Stampin’ Write Markers of Tahitian Tide, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake & Old Olive were used to colour the image prior to huffing & then stamping onto the die cut stitched rectangle.

The cards were completed by randomly adding Pearlescent White Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

Nature’s Prints

G’Day Friends,

Thank you so much for dropping by.  It is very much appreciated.

Last night was the first time we did our Mystery Stamping on a Monday Night.  A little different for me as I usually go to bed with the chooks & up with the birds!

I decided to play with some new product that will be in the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue & believe me, I loved them & I think you will too.

I was able to purchase the gorgeous Tea Boutique 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper along with the Sun Print’s Suite Collection in our Pre-Order.  I didn’t use the whole Collection but instead teamed Nature’s Prints Stamp Set up with the DSP.  I think it may have worked but I will let you be the judge.

It’s a simple & easy layout but one that showcases both the lovely Stamp Set AND the gorgeous DSP.

Of course, when you have a great layout that you love & use over & over, there is no stopping.  I then shared a 2nd card I created that morning with different supplies.

This one is created from new 2022-2024 In Colour  of Tahitian Tide which is from the 2022-2024 In Colours 6 x 6 DSP Pack, along with the Friends are like Seashells Stamp Set, Petal Pink, Basic White & Soft Suede Cardstock.  The shell has been stamped in Petal Pink Ink while the Sentiment is in Soft Suede.
