Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop – November 2021

G’Day Friends,

Thank you so much for joining me today as I am joining Kylie & Bruno’s  Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Monthly Team Blog Hop!  This is my first time hopping so I’m sure you will find lots of ideas & inspiration.

We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin’ Up!® business and to reach goals we have set ourselves.  Your support is really appreciated.

You may be starting here – Vicky Wright – or have come from another blog – either way you can find the Blog Roll at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post and idea today.

I selected a piece of paper from the Pansy Petals DSP which I am loving.  Mind you, I have been using the opposite sides but I love that we are able to do that.

The colours for my cards today were taken from the colours in the paper pack – Fresh Freesia, Rich Razzleberry & Basic White.  Colours way out of my comfort zone but hey that is a good thing.The flower & sentiment are from the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set while the die cut shape is from the matching Tasteful Lable Dies.

Once again, thank you so much for popping by today!

Shop for the items I’ve used on my cards today by clicking on the photo above.  You are able to add all the items or just pick & chose the items to your Shopping Cart.

Remember – By placing an order with me or joining my team this month, you will receive one of these lovely cards as my way of thanking you!  Of course, I have a matching PDF Tutorial along with 3 projects waiting to be emailed to you, all created with the products used on my card today!

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!

 

 

Blog Roll –


Peaceful Deer

G’Day Friends,

Today I am sharing a card I created when I first received my pre-order for the new July-December Mini Catalogue.   It’s called Peaceful Deer AND there is matching DSP in the 2nd lot of Sale-a-Bration which could be yours when spending $90 or over.

I’ve adhered a piece of the lovely DSP to a piece of Basic White Cardstock & then to a Basic Black Base Card prior to die cutting a shape in the front with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

I adhered a snowflake to the bottom left of the shape prior to adhering a punched deer t the top which was punched with the matching Deer Builder Punch.

The sentiment is from the same Stamp Set & was stamped inside the shape in Real Red Ink.

To finish the card, I tied a small bow from Basic White Baker’s Twine, adhered it to the deer’s neck with a Mini Glue Dot & randomly added 3 Clear Rhinestones to the inside of the card.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!

August Blog n Hop Blog Hop

G’Day Stampers,

Welcome to the Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop for August!

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.

Thank you for visiting.  If you are starting from my blog all you have to do is click on the next arrow below to continue.  There is also a Roll Call at the end of this post in case you get a little lost.

For my card today, I decided to grab Sailing Home from my shelf.  It is one of my favourites but one that hasn’t seen ink in some time.

A piece of Basic White Cardstock was embossed with the Bark 3D Embossing Folder before being adhered to a piece of Night of Navy & then to a Thick Basic White Base Card.

The shape was die cut from Basic White with the Painted Labels Dies, the yacht stamped in the middle of the circle in Nigh of Navy Ink along with the birds & then adhered to the left side of the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish it off, I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of scrap Basic White in Night of Navy Ink, chopped it back to size & into a banner shape before adhering it to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

As I mentioned, a very simple & easy card but one that I am more than happy with.

Thanks again for visiting my blog today.

Share it Sunday Blog Hop

G’Day Stampers,

Something a little different for me today as I am hopping along with a group of lovely ladies & I must admit this is the first time I’ve hopped with them.

The theme of the hop is….  Share a project, any project which works out perfectly as I had created a card especially for a challenge & thought it also perfect for this hop.

I’ve used one of my favourites – Timeless Tropical Stamp Set along with Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Highland Heather & Mossy Meadow Inks.  The Cardstock is Basic White & Pool Party.

The Basic White layer has been embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder while the sentiment was stamped in Pacific Point.

I am loving the colour combination!  What do you think?

Thanks so much for dropping by.  Be sure to click on the links below to check out what everyone has created for this hop.


Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!

July Stamp n’ Hop Blog Hop

G’Day Friends,

Today I am hopping along with a lovely group of SU! Demonstrators from all over the world.  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.

It has been so long since I’ve hopped along with them so fingers crossed it will be continue.

Welcome to our July Hop.  This month we are showcasing our favourite Bundle!  You may have just arrived from Liz’s blog where she shared her lovely project with her favourite Bundle.  If you have started from my blog, all you have to do is click on the next arrow below to continue.

There are so many lovely Bundles in the Annual Catalogue that I had a hard time choosing my favourite.  So when in doubt, I closed my eyes & hoped for the best.  Just happens Flowers of Friendship Bundle IS one of my favourites!

I’ve kept the layout fairly simple as I wanted the Bundle to POP!

Along with the simple layout, I decided to go with a colour combination way out of my comfort zone of Melon Mambo, Granny Apple Green, Basic White & Night of Navy as the Base Card.  What do you think?  I am happy with the combination.

This or That – Sailing Home, Day 3

G’Day Friends,

I do hope you are enjoying my This or That this week.

As I didn’t want those that opted for the gorgeous Sailing Home Stamp Set, I created a simple card especially for them.  This set just happens to be one of my favourites.

It may look a little harder than you think but believe me, it didn’t take me long to create once I sort of got my head around what I wanted to do.

This or That – Rooted in Nature

G’Day Friends,

Thanks so much for dropping by today!  It’s been a little while since my last post but hopefully I will be more consistent with the posting.

Over on my FB Page & in my VIP Group, I posted a This or That photo with 2 different Stamp Sets, asking which one they would like to see projects created for.  Rooted in Nature was the clear winner BUT that is not to say that I won’t be sharing projects for Sailing Home!

Today’s share is a simple one created with a very simple masking technique.

The sentiment is from the Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Set & was stamped in Night of Navy.

Rococo Rose #2

G’Day Friends,

This is Day 2 of Robbie & myself showcasing the lovely 2019-2021 In Colours over on our FB Pages.  Be sure to join us there.

Once again, my card is very simple to create but one that I think is lovely & clean so that it showcases the elements of the card perfectly.

This time round I’ve pulled out one of my favourites – Timeless Tropical Stamp Set.   It has been teamed up with the lovely Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.

The flower was stamped with Blushing Bride Ink while the leaves are Mini Macaron Ink.  The images were die cut with the matching dies from In the Tropics Dies.

The sentiment is from the Floral Essence Stamp Set.

The Base Card is again Rococo Rose along with the piece across the middleI am loving this colour & will be so sorry to see it leave us.

I finished the card off with a couple of 3 Clear Rhinestones..

What do you think?

Heal Your Heart – Day 2

G’Day Stampers,

I have Card #2 of our #SimpleStamping to share with you today.  In fact it is the one I shared on my FB Page yesterday.

Again it is using the fantastic Sale-a-Bration products that you are able to earn during January & February.

This time round I’ve chopped into the Crushed Curry from the Regals 6 x 6 Pack to create my card today.  I am loving this DSP & the patterns!

The circles were punched with the 2″ & 2 1/4″ Circle Punches.  The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso Ink while the Ribbon is the lovely Faux Suede Trim.  The wooden leaf is from the In Good Taste Elements.

I’ll let you into a little secret – while taking the photo, I noticed a small ink mark on the circle…..  How to cover it?  I didn’t want bling as I thought the card was perfect for a male.  The Faux Suede Trim to the rescue!

~~~~~~~~

Crikey!  Thank you everyone who purchased the class yesterday.  There are still a few spots left for Creativity in a Box.  This class is all about he plush & sophisticated Peony Garden Suite BUT it is only for a limited time & limited number available!  This class closes Tuesday, 19 January

Oh So Ombre Day #4

G’Day Stampers,

It’s Day #4 & that means I have another simple card created with the lovely Sale-A-Bration Oh So Ombre DSP, Level 1.  Can you tell I am a little obsessed with this DSP?

BUT before I get onto my card today, I just want to let you know that there is now Suite Shares available – Australian Residents only.  Check out all the details over on the 2021 Jan-Jun Suite Shares Page.

I’ve used the Blackberry Bliss colour of the pack & teamed it up with the lovely fern from Positive Thoughts which has been stamped in Granny Apple Green.  The sentiment is from the same set while the die cut butterfly is from Nature’s Thoughts Dies.

I finished the card off with a small bow tied from Whisper White Twine which comes from the Twine Combo Pack of the Snail Mail Suite.
