Team Blog Hop # 59

Welcome to our team blog hop.

This month we have a colour challenge.

The colours are perfect for Halloween but I have used them to create some cute little bug cards using the Hello Lady Bug stamp set.

I stamped the leaves in Old Olive on a full page of Basic White cardstock.
The leaves were stamped in full ink and then stamped off ink to get the different shades.

I then cut this sheet into 4 and created four cards.

The lady bug body was stamped in Blackberry Bliss as well as the main part of the wings.
The little spots on the wings were stamped in Pumpkin Pie.

Here are the cards created:

The stamp set has three little dots so I add a little more of the Pumpkin Pie colour with this stamp.

The sentiments are from the Layering Leaves stamp set and stamped in Blackberry Bliss on Basic White and die cut using the Stylish Shapes Dies.

Hope you enjoyed my creations.

Enjoy the tour that the my team bloggers have created.

See you next time.

Team Blog Hop 50

Welcome to our new monthly team Blog, if you have joined my blog from visiting Sharon's blog - I hope you are enjoying the teams creations!

A New Year and  new challenge.

This month we have a sketch challenge.

What you create with this sketch?

I have created a card using products from the new Mini Catalogue and Sale-a-Bration promotion.

The DSP Favored Flowers is one of the Sale-a-Bration products, beautiful papers with stunning flowers and patterns.

The stamp set and die used are from the new mini catalogue and called Fragrant Flowers Stamp Set and Fragrant Flowers Dies.  

I do not mind fussy cutting but there is a co-ordinating die in the Fragrant Flowers Dies that did the work for me. So I die cut a couple of flowers at the one time to make up some other cards later.

This is my card:

The card stock used is Blackberry Bliss and Basic White.

The sentiment from the Fragrant Flowers Stamp Set is stamped in Blackberry Bliss.

The paper is from the Favored Flowers DSP. 

The flower and sentiment have been layered up with dimensionals and a few Champagne Rhinestones for a little bling.

Team Blog Hop # 49

 Welcome to our new Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop for December.

This month is a colour challenge.

The base of my card is Orchid Oasis and I have added a die cut  border in Pear Pizzazz using the Basic Borders Dies.

The images are from the Bottled Happiness stamp set. 

The main flower image was stamped in Calypso Coral and then the second image I have I have applied  the ink using daubers.

Here is my card:

I find that I get a better image if apply the ink to the bottled image.  The ink used for this a neutral colour Sahara Sand.

There is a little bow in linen thread at the top of each bottle and the sentiment also from the Bottled Happiness stamp set has been stamped in Orchid Oasis.

There is also a couple of rhinestones for bling.

Welcome to our new Team Blog Hop for April.

This month we have a sketch challenge and it was fun to work with.

For my card I have used the You're A Peach DSP with a little stamping.

Here is my card based on the sketch

I have used a large piece of the DSP and then smaller section.

The leaves are from the Artistically Inked Stamp set stamped in Garden Green and die cut with the
co-ordinating Artistic Dies.

Here is a closer look at the card

The sentiment and flower are from the Sweet as a Peach stamp set.
The flower stamped in Calypso Coral and the sentiment in Early Espresso.

The It's Your Birthday sentiment was die cut using one of the Peach Dies.

I have added Stampin' Dimensionals to lift the sentiments and add the leaves and added a Rhinestone to the flower image.

Team Blog Hop # 40


Welcome to our team blog hop for March 2022.

You may have joined my blog from Marelle's blog or just started here - either way we are so glad you have joined us.

This month we have a colour challenge.

I had an idea in my mind on the stamp set I wanted to use which is the Crane of Fortune set.

I stamped the Crane in Bumblebee ink and die cut it with the Good Fortune Dies.

I also die cut the flower fan die in Magneta Madness using the dies.

Here is my card

Base of the card is Misty Moonlight - I really like this colour.

The little dragonflies and the water are stamped on the Misty Moonlight with the co-ordinating ink.

The sentiment is from the SAB Friendly Hello stamp set and stamped in Memento Black.

I have used dimensionals for most of the layers to give the card a little pop up.

Of course you cannot go past some bling with a few Rhinestones.

Welcome to the Stampers Anonymous team blog hop for February.

This month we have a sketch challenge.

I have created a card using Sale-a-Bration Daffodil Afternoon DSP and the cute Hello Ladybug stamp set.
I stamped the Lady Bug image in Evening Evergreen and punched out the body and wings using the Ladybug Builder Punch which can be found in the January - June Mini Catalogue.

The wings are from the Vellum Laying Designs pack also in the Mini Catalogue, I nearly missed them but they have great designs.

Here is a look at my card:

The base card used is Mossy Meadow and I added some Champagne Rhinestones.
The image was die cut using the Layering Circles Dies.

Here is a closer look at the image:

You can see the pattern on the vellum in this photo
The ribbon used is Gold Fine Art.

The sentiment and leaf have been stamped in Mossy Meadow ink but the leaf was stamped off once.

Team Blog Hop # 38

Happy New Year!  

I hope your 2022 has started off well and that you are keeping safe.

We have a fabulous team blog hop to share with you and if are following the blog hop you will have joined my blog after visiting Sharon's blog.

Our challenge this month is Anything Goes.

I have decided that I need to make time to do some crafting so I have been taking a sheet of Whisper White Cardstock and playing with different colours and images and stamping.

I then cut up the Whisper White Cardstock up and create some cards.  
Sort of One Sheet Wonder but a little different.

So for this challenge I was inspired to try some different colours which I saw funnily enough on a fabric softener bottle.  The end result was a little different then planned but I still like it.

The ink colours use are Daffodil Delight, Sahara Sand, Mossy Meadow, Garden Green, Balmy Blue and Night of Navy.

Card stock used is Garden Green, Sahara Sand and Whisper White.

I have only added a sentiment to one of the cards and the others I will add sentiments later.

I ended up cutting the A4 Whisper White cardstock so I had 4 cards and with a little strip left over which I may use on the inside of the card.

The images stamped on the Whisper White cardstock were from the Sale-a-Bration "Friendly Hello" set and "Artistically Inked" stamp set in the main catalogue.

Here is the card with the sentiment and the sentiment is from the new seasonal catalogue called "Nature Harvest"

This is two of the other cards

and the last card

Team Blog Hop # 35


Hello and welcome.

It's been a while since I have had a chance to do any crafting so I am super excited to be joining this months team blog hop.

For October we have a Colour Challenge and if you may have arrived here from Elizabeth's blog.

I have used Artistically Inked Stamps for the images on my cards and the co-ordinating Artistic Dies.

The Many Messages Stamp set and Messages Die provides lots of different sentiments and styles, so I could pick the best one for the card.  The sentiments were stamped in Calypso Coral. 

As I was in a crafting moment and had some spare time I created 4 cards with this colour combo.

All the card bases are  Calypso Coral.

Card 1

Added some DSP from the Tidings of Christmas DSP pack which has Sahara Sand & Whisper White and some bling.  

Card 2 
I stamped the swirly background image in Calyso Coral randomly on the card base and then added a strip of the images, sentiment and bling.

Card 3 
The flowers and leaves have been die cut once stamped on Whisper White.
I rounded the corners on the Whisper White base, added some dimensionals and linen thread under the sentiment, plus of course a little bling.

Card 4
I stamped the flowers, leaves and spots on Whisper White and a die cut Calypso Coral card stock border using the Basic Borders Dies.  
Apologies the thread is retired but I had not realised until the card was finished.
