SOCIAL STAMPING | WAR & PEACE


Hello and welcome to this week's Social Stamping Blog Host created by my lovely and talented friend Kelly Kent. Kelly wanted to give us a platform to share our creations due to the world being in various stages of social distancing and isolation. You may have arrived from Kathryn's blog, or if you are starting here please be sure to hop all the way around, you won't want to miss any of the fabulous projects everyone has to share.

The theme for today is "war and peace"! 

It is Anzac Day here in NZ today, and it is the first time ever that we have not been about to gather in crowds at dawn and stand silently on a cool autumnal morning to remember the fallen. But while we won't be standing shoulder to shoulder wearing our ancestors' military decorations, buying poppies or listening to the haunting Last Post, we will stand in our driveways, living rooms or balconies and we will remember. We will also remember with gratitude that no matter what we are currently dealing with, it is incomparable to what our forebears suffered in wartime.


The gorgeous Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper was an obvious choice to use for my cards. I have almost used it all up now!


I have created a selection of different cards showcasing the Designer Series Paper with a sentiment or two.


I'm planning on sending these out to customers around the city to say hi and let them know I'm thinking about them.


Just choosing a different accent colour creates a totally different look.


Glimmer papers, foils, metallic thread and rhinestones all look great on this paper too.


This paper is just too beautiful to cover up!

I hope wherever you are in the world you are keeping well and staying safe.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the hop - Kia Kaha!

Next up is Siobhan, I look forward to seeing her gorgeous creation.
