BE INSPIRED | HOLIDAY CREATIONS


Welcome to November's Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop! Our projects this month are Holiday Creations, please be sure to hop all the way around for lots of inspirational projects created by the design team. You may have arrived here from my talented and lovely friend Stesha from the United States, or if you are starting here, welcome!


Combing the trees from the Tag Buffet Project Kit, the gold words from the Joy to the World Paper Pumpkin Kit and the Heart Warming Hugs Designer Series Paper made creating this cards a joy!


The ribbon was coloured using the Dark Real Red Blends and layered over the tree and under the sentiments. A generous gold bow and a trio of gold Metallic Pearls completed my cards.


Next up in today's hop is my sweet and inspirational friend Janneke in The Netherlands, I'm looking forward to seeing what gorgeous creation Janneke has to share with us.

AROUND THE WORLD ON WEDNESDAY | THE MARKET - ALL ABOUT TEXTURE!


Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday Design Team's November Blog Hop. The Around the World on Wednesday has been created by my lovely friend Angie McKenzie and comprises a group of super talented demonstrators from around the world. The Around the World Hop goes live on the second Wednesday of each month.


Our theme this month is The Market - All About Texture! It is a broad theme with a specific focus on Texture!

I've chosen to use the new Enjoy the Moment Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!, it is a new stamp set due out in the new Mini Catalogue in January. 


The seed pods, leaves and seeds immediately made me think of the markets where you can buy an array of different items including dried flowers and seeds. These images are so real I can imagine the feel and texture of them, but to add some extra texture, I ran the stamped panel through my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.



Despite dried "things" usually being brown, I decided these images looked great in any colour!


And of course, I added my trademark accessories, some Gold Metallic Pearls, Linen Thread and a sentiment white embossed on Basic Black Cardstock!

I have made a video making this card on my YouTube Channel, you can see it here.

Next up on our Hop is Tatiana, I can't wait to see what she has created! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop.

STAMPING SOCIETY NOVEMBER BLOG HOP | POINSETTIA PLACE SUITE


Hello and welcome to the Stamping Society's November Blog Hop and Monthly Tutorial. I love being part of this team of amazingly talented Stampin' Up!® demonstrators from around the world.

Our theme this month is the Poinsettia Place Suite from the Mini Catalogue. Here's a sneak peek of the gorgeous creations everyone has made.

NOVEMBER TUTORIAL SNEAK PEEK:


We have a video tutorial available, showcasing six different and exclusive projects. You can get these tutorials by:
  1. Buying the tutorials ($10.25 NZD from me or equivalent in each market), click on the Buy Now Button under Tutorials for Sale at the top of this page, to make your purchase; or
  2. Spend $37 worth of Stampin' Up! product from me and you'll get these for free.
  3. Get them for free as a member of my Stampin' Up! Team.

I traditionally associate Poinsettias with red but today I decided to try them in Flirty Flamingo with a Pool Party background! I white embossed the bracts, water-coloured them and layered them onto a Stitched Rectangle that had been sponged with Pool Party. I also stamped some circle images in Versamark, they are just visible under the Poinsettia. The white card base has been white embossed with the leaf image.


A cluster of Rhinestones finish off my Poinsettia along with a generous flick of Frost White Shimmer Paint and some sequins.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Please continue on the hop to see everyone's creative projects.
