Team Blog Hop # 14


Welcome to our new team blog hop for January 2020.

You will have joined me from Melissa's blog and I have added a list of the team participates below if you get lost.

For our blog hop theme this month we are showcasing products from the Mini Catalogue.


I have used the Tropical Oasis Memories and More Card Park. 
Included in the pack as well as the cards are some sticker sheets to add words or embellishments.

I found the bundle to have fabulous colours, great for quick cards and also scrapbook too.

Below is a picture of the bundle of cards with the belly band I created with the sticker "enjoy".


Here is the belly band with just the envelopes



To follow are images of the cards in pairs:





I have also a taken pictures of the cards individually:


The base card is Pretty Peacock with some Burlap Ribbon and the rest are stickers included in the pack.


The base card is Pear Pizzazz and I added some Vellum and the twine. 
The die cut is from the Painted Labels Die set which co-ordinates with the Painted Poppies Stamp set also in the Mini Catalogue.
The sentiment sticker reads " Thinking of you Today & Always".  The heart is a sticker.



The base card is Soft Suede with layers of the cards and a few Tropical Oasis Trinkets with a Rhinestone under the words.


I think this is my favourite of the all the cards.  The base card is Grapefruit Grove.
The "Aloha" was another card which I fussy cut around.
Added some dimensionals and some Burlap Ribbon on the bottom card.


The list of our team providing inspiration are:

Team Blog Hop #7



Hello and welcome to our team blog hop.

You may have arrived at my blog from Nikki's blog where we are starting our blog hop this month.

If not please feel free to have a look at what the team has created, all the links are below.

Our challenge this month is a colour challenge using some of the new In Colors.


I was limited when creating my card as I do not have the new In Color ink pads but I just adore the dies in the Delicate Lace collection, so this is what I used.  

Here is my card:


Lots of layers and a little bling.

I had die cut each layer from a piece of  the In Color cardstock (Pretty Peacock, Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray) and Whisper White.  The layers were adhered to Whisper White cardstock.
The base layer of the card is Pretty Peacock.

The sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set and I used the Pretty Peacock marker to ink up the words.

The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White cardstock and layered with some more Pretty Peacock cardstock.  Both pieces have been punched out with the Tailored Tag punch.

Hope you like this little creation.


Please continue on our blog hop by stopping by Melissa's blog and see her inspiration.
