BE INSPIRED | RETIREMENT OR GRADUATION

Welcome to this month's Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop! Our theme this month is Reitrement or Graduation. You may have arrived here from my very talented friend Stesha   from the United States of America,  or if you are starting here be sure to hop all the way around, you won't want to miss any of the inspirational projects created by the design team. Have you had a sneak peek at the new Stampin' Up!® Annual Catalogue (3 June 2020 - 3 May 2021)? It is full of lots of exciting new products plus lots of those favourites too! Tasteful Touches is a beautiful new set with co-ordinating Tasteful Labels Dies, and the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder is going to be a new favourite!

SOCIAL STAMPING | ANIMALS

Hello and welcome to today's Social Stamping Blog Host! We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators brought together by the very lovely and talented Kelly Kent. For the last nine weeks, we have been sharing our creations as a means of bringing us together due to the world being in various stages of social distancing and isolation. You may have arrived here from seeing Nikki Spencer's gorgeous creation, or if you are starting here please be sure to hop around everyone, you won't want to miss any of the inspiring projects everyone has to share. The theme for this hop is "Animals" and with the Animal Outing Stamp Set about to retire I thought I would give it a little love before it does!   The images in this set are so cute and with a checked background stamped using the Buffalo Check Stamp in Balmy Blue, I thought it would make a great baby card.

SOCIAL STAMPING | SUNSHINE

Hello and welcome to today's Social Stamping Blog Host! We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators brought together by the very lovely and talented Kelly Kent. For the last eight weeks, we have been sharing our creations as a means of bringing us together due to the world being in various stages of social distancing and isolation. You may have arrived here from seeing Julia Quinn's  fabulous creation, or if you are starting here please be sure to hop around everyone, you won't want to miss any of the inspiring projects everyone has to share. The theme for this blog hop is "Sunshine" and with the sentiment "Hello Sunshine", I decided the "Under My Umbrella" Stamp Set was perfect for this! With more time than normal to experiment, I played around with the embossing paste, water-colouring and the Champagne Shimmer Mist! I love this subtle background with the bright and cheerful umbrella on top! Confession time
