INK IT! STAMP IT! BLOG HOP - NEW ANNUAL CATALOGUE

Friday 22 June 2018
 


Welcome to my very first hop with the Ink it! Stamp it! Blog Hop Design Team. I'm so excited to be part of this fabulous group of talented stampers from all over Australia who have added a few of us international girls to the mix. Tonight we are sharing projects from the New Annual Catalogue so keep your wish list handy!  A full line up below will guide you through all the projects and you won't want to miss any!
 
 
The Little Elephant stamp set is one of my favourites in the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue - I loved it the minute I saw it! For these cards I've chosen colours to co-ordinate with the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper - Night of Navy, Petal Pink, Pool Party and Soft Sea Foam. The backgrounds have been stamped using the Versamark Pad to create a lovely subtle look.

 
Flirty Flamingo co-ordinates perfectly with the Petal Pink as do the Iridescent Sequin Assortment.

 
I've used Bermuda Bay to go with the Pool Party cardbase and DSP.

 
Blues always look great together - Pacific Point ink, Night of Navy cardstock and DSP, and Pool Party Sequin.
 
 
And lastly the Soft Sea Foam works well with Lemon Lime Twist Ink and Pear Pizzazz Sequin.

The Whisper White Baker's Twine tied in a bow gives each card a little finishing touch.

Thanks so much for stopping by, enjoy the hop and I look forward to sharing more projects each month with the Ink It! Stamp It! Design Team.

STAMPIN' DREAMS BIRTHDAY THEME BLOG HOP

Thursday 21 July 2018

 
 
Hello and welcome to this month's Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop. You are currently visiting Angela Meiritz-Reid from Christchurch, New Zealand. The team have all created projects with a Birthday theme so there'll be lots of great projects to inspire you. A full list below will take you around all the projects. 
 
 
Have you seen this Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper in the new Annual Catalogue? It's simply stunning. For my card I've adhered it to a piece of Petal Pink cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then trimmed it down to size. I added the glue sparingly to the bigger leaves and flowers which seems to be enough to hold it!
 

I then cut out five of the word "celebrate" in Flirty Flamingo cardstock using the Celebrate You Thinlits and glued them together, again with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
 
 
I attached a swirl of Gold Metallic Thread underneath "celebrate" then adhered it to the card front, finishing it off with a sprinkling of Iridescent Sequins.

The Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper is so delicate and gives projects a beautiful elegant look.

Please make your way around the hop - you won't want to miss any!

I've created my card using the Little Elephant stamp set.
 
 
I've kept the layout the same just changed the colours to co-ordinate with the Bermuda Bay ribbon. I stamped the elephant first then created a mask so I could stamp the flowers in the background.

CASEING THE CATTY C182 - TEA ROOM SUITE

Sunday 10 June 2018


 
Welcome to this week's CASEing the Catty Blog Hop. Our inspiration this week comes from The Tea Room Suite on pages 13-25 of the fabulous new Annual Catalogue!  You may have arrived here from seeing Kelly's gorgeous 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 next button at the end of this post will take you on your journey.


My inspiration this week came from the vases card (in the picture below) from page 13 of the Annual Catalogue.


 It's such a pretty card, I love the colours and the layout.


My card uses products from the new Annual Catalogue - it's so exciting having lots of new products to choose from! The flowers are from the new Love What You Do stamp set while the "Enjoy your special day" is from Dragonfly Dreams, a continuing favourite! The paper is from the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper - I've already used a whole pack!


The gorgeous Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon adds a luxe feel to any card and co-ordinates perfectly with the DSP. A piece of Pearlized Doily peeks out from below the sentiment - this is actually the back of the doily as I thought the matte side worked better!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous week. The Next button at the bottom of my supplies list will continue you on the hop.
 
Here's a list of supplies I used:

Stamp Set: Love What You Do, Dragonfly Dreams.

Inks: Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive.

Papers: Blushing Bridge, Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry and Share What You Love DSP.

Accessories:  1/4" (6.4mm) Velvet Ribbon - Rich Razzleberry and Pearlized Doilie.s
