Thursday, 26 December 2019


Welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Design Team Blog Hop. You may have arrived here from my lovely and talented friend Sandra Mastello from Australia. If you are starting here please see the complete list at the bottom of this post which will guide you through all the inspirational projects the team has to share.

The theme for this hop is "Sale-A-Bration/Mini Catalogue Sneak Peek!

The Forever Blossoms Stamp Set and its co-ordinating Cherry Blossoms Dies are going to be one of my favourites and I'm looking forward to creating lots more with this set!

I've created this card by stamping the floral image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colouring it with the Granny Apple Green, Lovely Lipstick and Petal Pink Blends. I used the co-ordinating die to cut out the image and layered it on a Subtle Embossed background.

The Rhinestones have been coloured with the Blends too! Making them co-ordinate perrfectly, of course! Happy Birthday is from the Well Said Stamp Set.

I've also added a bow in Linen Thread and an extra shimmer on the flowers using Wink of Stella.

All the products I've used are from Stampin' Up! and can be purchased directly from my On-Line Shop by clicking the Shop Now Link at the top or on the images below. The products from the Mini Catalogue will be available on 3 January 2020 - just 8 days to go! 

Thanks for visiting today and be sure to hop all the way around to see the gorgeous creations my fellow team members have created.

Hello and welcome to the last Stampin' Up! 2019 Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Where has this year gone? It has been a fabulous year and I loved being part of this group of talented, inspirational and gorgeous Artisans from around the world.

You may have arrived here from my lovely and talented friend Tanya Rees from Australia. If you are starting here please click on the next button at the bottom of this post and hop all the way around. There are so many inspirational projects to see, you won't want to miss any!
For this hop we are showcasing the Tiny Keepsakes Bundle and the Tags Tags Tags Bundle. Both these Bundles are super cute and so versatile - check out all the gorgeous projects created by the team.

I love creating mini cards and the striped and checked stamps in the Tiny Keepsakes Stamp Set are the perfect size! I've teamed them up with the Valentine sentiments from the Tags Tags Tags Bundle, along with the hearts from the Stitched Be Mine Dies. A bow in Whisper White Solid Baker's Twine, a splattering of co-ordinating ink on the background and Iridescent Sequin complete each card.

Inspired by Sylwia's cute fox, I made this unicorn one. Wouldn't they make the perfect party favour for a child's birthday party?

I added die-cut felt accents from the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit to these little boxes to co-ordinate with the 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper. I attached them to the edge of the box so they could be opened and closed easily without retying the bow!

And yes there are more! Once I started ...

Thank you so much to everyone for all your fabulous support this year. It has been a dream come true and I'm so pleased to have been entrusted by Stampin' Up!® to represent them this year. Thanks also to my fellow 2019 Artisan Design Team, you will always hold a special place in my heart. 

Thanks for stopping by and please keep hopping along and check out all the stunning projects created by the rest of the team. Next up is Ashley Van Camp,  her projects are gorgeous!
And now ... I am pleased to introduce the Artisan Design Team for 2020! Congratulations to you all and I look forward to seeing your inspirational creations over the next year!

Yay, the Artisan Design Team are hopping today with projects created using products from the upcoming Sale-A-Bration brochure.

The Sale-A-Bration pre-earn period is finally here - from 3 December 2019 to 2 January 2020! This means that demonstrators can earn items in the Sale-A-Bration Shop offering early. For every $110 you spend, you choose a free item from the Sale-A-Bration brochure that matches the level you spent. Demonstrators can even use the pre-order of the January-June mini catalogue and purchase items from that catalogue or any other current catalogue, and earn free Sale-A-Bration products! If you aren’t a demonstrator yet, this is a great sneak peek to see what is in store for Sale-A-Bration beginning 3 January 2020!

This is just one of the many fabulous perks of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

How cute is this Lovely Lily Pad Stamp Set? And of course, it gets better! There are co-ordinating Lily Pad Dies!

The lilies on both these cards have been embossed with White Emboss Powder, heat set and water coloured.

The background on the right card has been created by using one of the die cuts from the set as a mask with Emboss Paste and then splattered with Champagne Mist.

This stamp set has the added bonus of being a "Reversibles" so the outline image can be stamped first, turned over and stamped again to colour in the image. So versatile as it caters for those who love to colour in and those that don't!

The background has been created by embossing "Celebrate" from the Happy Birthday to You Sale-A-Bration set and adding a water colour wash over it.

I also used the Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blend on the lines of the Lily to add a little more depth once I had stamped it. Stampin' Blends have been used to colour the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon too so it co-ordinates with my cards.

The Sequins are from the Peaceful Poppies Suite and before I adhered them with glue I used my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to create a little black dot. This made placement easy and I like the look of the sequins being filled in!

This pre-order/pre-earn opportunity is an exclusive benefit for demonstrators to enable them to get products early so they are prepared when Sale-A-Bration starts on 3 January.

Next up is my fabulous friend Ashley van Camp, her cards are gorgeous! Please keep hopping along and check out all the stunning projects created by the rest of the team - here's a little sneak peek to whet your appetite!


If you live in New Zealand and would like to become a Demonstrator I would love you to join Stampin' Up! and become part of my Stamping Beauties team. Please email me at angela.frank00@gmail.com and we can have a chat about this fabulous opportunity.
