Wednesday, 26 May 2021


Welcome to the Be Inspired Hop, today we are sharing projects created with "Friendship" as our theme. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has created! Please be sure to hop all the way around for lots of inspirational projects created by the design team. 

I thought the Biggest Wish Stamp Set was perfect for a friendship card and it arrived yesterday, just in time for me to create this card!

Being a part of Stampin' Up! has opened up a world of friendships, it's like the days of pen pals only better! I hope that one day, when we can travel more freely, I'll get the opportunity to meet some of my Stampin' Up! friends, especially the ones on this team! I have been lucky enough to meet Tanya at a Stampin' Up! event but that seems so long ago! At least with technology we get to see and talk to one another so for now it's just a virtual hug!

To create my card, I started by sketching a layout and choosing the You're a Peach Designer Series Paper. From there I picked out co-ordinating colours of Balmy Blue, Pear Pizzazz, Basic White and gold.

Starting with a floral panel on a Balmy Blue card base, I added a striped panel, then a Basic White rectangle I had embossed with Embossing Paste and a mask from the Basic Patterns set. I wound a piece of Whisper White Baker's Twine around the top two panels and tied a bow.

The flower and leaves are from the Artistically Inked Stamp Set - I can see this is going to be a new favourite!

Hello was stamped in Versamark and gold embossed. Friend was stamped in Balmy Blue and yes both were painstakingly fussy cut!

I added a couple of Gold Metallic Pearls and a sequin from Artistry Blooms pack.

I've created a YouTube video for this card - you are check it out here!

I hope you have enjoyed my creation today. Next up in today's hop is my lovely friend Tanya in Australia, I'm looking forward to seeing what gorgeous creation Tanya has to share with us.

Hello and welcome to the Stamping Society's May Blog Hop and Monthly Tutorial. 

Our theme this month is our Favourite Flower Bundle and I have chosen the In Bloom Bundle.  Here's a sneak peek of the creations everyone has made this month using their Favourite Flower Bundle.


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.

The In Bloom Bundle is such a pretty set and for this card I've teamed it up with some new products from the upcoming 2021-22 Annual Catalogue. The spotted paper in the background is from a Hostess Set called Pattern Party - it contains 48 sheets of gorgeous papers. The Designer Series Paper is coloured on one side and black and white on the other! I've also used the new Polished Pink In Colour, isn't it a perfect pink?

I've bent up a few of the petals to create a little depth as well as adhering them with Dimensionals. The gems are also from the new Catalogue and co-ordinate with the new In Colours. 

The sentiment has been stamped in Polished Pink and die cut. I've used Chelsey Hart Chistensen's fabulous tip of running the stylus from your Take Your Pick tool around the inside of the die to create a beveled edge. Such a clever idea!

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope my project has inspired you to get creative! Please continue on the hop to see everyone's inspirational projects.
