Team Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop.

This month we are showcasing two new stamps sets received at the recent Stampin' Up! OnStage called "Amazing Life" and "Incredible Like You".  These stamp sets will be available in the new Seasonal Catalogue from the 3 January until 3 June 2019.

You will have just arrived here from Melissa's  blog.

I have used the Amazing Life stamp set and I just love the sentiment which reads 
"So Happy to have you in my Life"

I haven't used the new Mango Melody colour so with this in mind my card came to life.

Here is a look at my card:

I stamped the sentiment in the Mango Melody and then rolled the stamp again lightly with Melon Mambo ink.

The die used are also new in the catalogue Rectangle Stitched Framelit Dies - love it!

The cardstock Melon Mambo was embossed with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder.

The corners were punched out using the Detailed Trio Punch.

Here is a close up of the sentiment:

There is small strip of Night of Navy (which unfortunately looks a little dark here) on the side which has been die cut using one of the dies from the Delicate Lace Edgelit collection.

A few rhinestones cause we all love bling.

Your next stop is Sharon Wilson's blog to see what Sharon has created.

Should you get lost along the way here is a list over the team's blogs:

The dies used were from SU Square Framelits and Spellbinders Nestablilities Captivating Squares collection.

Here is a close up of the spotlight image:

The sentiment is from the SU Beautiful Promenade set and stamped in Fresh Fig ink Whisper White cardstock.

PB Autumn Splendor

Hi everyone,

I was so lucky to be asked to create a card as a Guest Designer at the
Penny Black and More Challenges.

The theme for the challenge is Autumn Splendour and this theme can lend itself to so many fabulous ideas, from the colour, nature or even a combination of both.

I have used a floral image from the Penny Black Bouquets stamp set and stamped the image in
SU Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Cajan Craze inks on SU Very Vanilla cardstock to
create the back ground.

I then added another layer of the Cajan Craze cardstock, which has one site punched out to create a border.

Here is my card:

The sentiment is from the SU Painted Harvest stamp set and stamped in SU Old Olive.

I then added another image from the Penny Black Bouquets stamp set in the top corner of the sentiment cardstock.

Here is a close up of the sentiment.

Please visit the challenge if you get a chance, I am sure they Design Team would love to see your creations.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.

Alphabet Challenge - N is for Nature
Craft Rocket Challenge - #53 Autumn/Halloween
Crafty Gals Corner Challenge - #175 Anything Fall Goes
