CREATING KINDNESS DESIGN TEAM BLOG HOP - GUEST DESIGNER!


 
Yay what a great way to start the year - being a Guest Designer on the Creating Kindness Design Team Blog Hop! This team is full of amazingly creative Stampin' Up!® demonstrators and I'm thrilled to be asked to hop along.

The theme for this hop is Bendi Cards! I had never made one before and was excited to try something new. It was lots of fun and way easier than I thought. If you'd like to learn how to make a bendi card Jenny Hall has a great video tutorial here.

 
The butterflies are from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set which comes with a co-ordinating Butterfly Duet Punch. The spotted paper is from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper which is FREE during Sale-A-Bration!
 


"Celebrate Your Day!" is from the Hello Cupcake Stamp Set also FREE during Sale-A-Bration - I love the fonts! The butterflies have been inked up in Grapefruit Grove, Lemon Lime Twist and Coastal Cabana, I love how fresh and clean these colours look!

The accessories I've used for my card are the Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins, Rhinestones and Silver Metallic Thread.
 
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop for lots of bendi card inspiration. My gorgeous and talented friend Lou Kitzelman from Austrailia is up next.

INK & INSPIRATION - NEW CATTY SNEAK PEEK


Hello and welcome to this month's Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You are currently visiting Angela Meiritz-Reid from Christchurch, New Zealand. The complete list at the bottom will guide you through all the inspirational projects created by the team.
 
The theme this month is a sneak peek from the 2019 Occasions and the Sale-A-Bration Catalogues.
 

For today's card I've used the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and co-ordinating Butterfly Duet Punch. These two gorgeous Stampin' Up!® products are going to be so well loved by me - so look out for lots of butterfly creations!
 
I've used two of the new Designer Series Papers too! The black and white spotted paper is from the Botanical Butterfly collection (available FREE with any purchase of NZ$110 from 3 January) and the striped paper is from the Happiness Blooms collection available from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.

 
The butterflies have been stamped in Calypso Coral to co-ordinate with the Happiness Blooms DSP and I've added leaves from the Incredible Like You Stamp Set in Lemon Lime Twist. The Whisper White strip of cardstock has been embossed with the Subtle Folder.
 
"A little note" is stamped in black and is from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set - isn't the font lovely?
 
A few rhinestones to tie in the Silver Glimmer Paper and the Silver Metallic Thread complete my card.
 
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop. You won't want to miss all the fabulous projects the team has to share!

INK IT! STAMP IT! BLOG HOP - SNEAK PEEK!


Welcome to the Ink It! Stamp It! Blog Hop. This month we are sharing Sneak Peek projects from the 2019 Sale-A-Bration and Occasions Catalogues. You may have arrived here from seeing the lovely and talented Jenny Hall's project if you're hopping along already. If you started here, welcome and please make sure to visit all the Design Team's blogs, the full line up below will guide you through all the projects.

 
Oh how I love these butterflies from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and the co-ordinating Butterfly Duet Punch from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.  You stamp two images at once, one large and one small and the punch cuts them out together - very clever! I now have a little stash of butterflies for my next project!
 

The spotted paper is from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper in the 2019 Sale-A-Bration Catalogue - FREE with any purchase of NZ$110 from 3 January! There are coloured images on one side (mostly butterflies) and black and white designs on the other - I love black and white, timeless and elegant!

The white background has been embossed using the Subtle folder - I stamped the sentiment first!

I also added a few co-ordinating silver elements - thread, glimmer paper and rhinestones - along with some sequins from the Gingham Gala Sequin collection.
 
These two catalogues are full of gorgeous Stampin' Up! product. Please contact me if you'd like to purchase anything or click the link above to my Online Store.
 
Have a very Merry Christmas and I look forward to seeing you again soon. The holidays are here so I'm looking forward to some uninterrupted crafting time!

Here's a list of the 2019 team - it's a photograph of the screen at OnStage announcing the team. I had to keep it a secret for a while so I was pleased when it was announced!

 
I received a beautifully decorated white lacquered box with a personalised Artisan Design Team stamp and a gorgeous Tiffany's bracelet inside!
 
A big thank you to the 2018 Artisan Design Team, you have been amazing!

INK IT! STAMP IT! BLOG HOP - CHRISTMAS


Welcome to the Ink It! Stamp It! Blog Hop. This month we are sharing Christmas projects. You may have arrived here from seeing the lovely and talented Kirsten Aitchison's project if you're hopping along already. If you started here, welcome and please make sure to visit all the Design Team's blogs, the full line up below will guide you through all the projects.

 
Making Christmas tags, or tags of any sort, is a great way to use up any leftover pieces of Designer Series Paper and Cardstock! For these tags I've used the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper along with the little trees from the Festive Farmhouse Elements. I coloured the trees in using my marker then embossed them with Clear Emboss Powder. Yes it was a bit fiddly but I love how they've turned out!
 
The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings and is the perfect size for a tag!
 
Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!

INK & INSPIRATION - CHRISTMAS TIME BLOG HOP


Hello and welcome to this month's Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You are currently visiting Angela Meiritz-Reid from Christchurch, New Zealand. The complete list at the bottom will guide you through all the inspirational projects created by the team.
 
The theme this month is Christmas Time.
 

This gorgeous Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper has been an absolute favourite of mine and I have used every last piece!

The swirl under the sentiment is from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits and picks up the copper in the paper to create an elegant look!


The sentiment is from the Sincerely Santa Stamp Set and has been embossed with the Copper Emboss Powder. I've created the label using the oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits, punching a hole in the top and adding a piece of Baker's Twine.

The little stars are from the Festive Farmhouse Elements - aren't they cute?

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop. You won't want to miss all the fabulous projects the team has to share!
