Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop




Welcome to our Stampers Anonymous SU blog tour! Tonight we are delighted to show you projects using products that were available to us in our demo sneak peek from the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalogue.


You may have just come from Marelle Taylor’s blog, but if you are starting here, don’t worry … you can make the complete tour just by following the links at the end of each post. There are 14 stops along the way and we hope you will visit each one to see the wonderful creations we have to show you! Please feel free to leave some comment love along the way …


At the end of each post there will be a link to take you to the next stop on the tour.

So grab a cuppa, sit back and enjoy!


The new catalogue has some great sets and bold Designer Series Papers. 


For this Blog Hop I have used the Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper and I really love the colour combination.


The paper uses the new colours Pear Pizzazz and Daffodil Delight with some old favourites including Chocolate Chip, Real Read, Pumpkin Pie and Baja Breeze.


It has been sometime since I have used Pumpkin Pie and I found it goes really well with the  Chocolate Chip, maybe that will be my next challenge to create some more cards using Pumpkin Pie.


But for now I have created a small tote bag with some co-coordinating cards.  I put off creating 3-D projects as I think it may take too long but I was really surprised how quick this bag was to create and how much fun I had creating it.  So if you have been putting off creating a 3-D project – I would suggest you just give it a go. 


This little bag  could hold 4 cards with envelopes and is a great gift idea.


I have used the quote “Thank You for your Kindness” from the Occasional Quotes Hostess set and layered it on two punched Pumpkin Pie Scallop Oval pieces.

Stamp sets: Friends Never Fade, Occasional Quotes (Hostess)
Card: Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery, Whisper White
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Scallop Oval Extra-Large, 1 -3/4” x 7/8” Oval Large and Scallop Edge Border Punches, Stampin’ Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive, Sticky Strip, Greenhouse Gala DSP


The Greenhouse Gala DSP was used on both the cards and the bag.  The new stamp set Friends Never Fade co-ordinates well with this paper.


Both cards were quick to make and I really love the saying from the Friends Never Fade stamp set which reads -  “Friends are Flowers that Never Fade” -  How true is that!

Stamp sets: Friends Never Fade

Card: Chocolate Chip,  Certainly Celery, Whisper White
Ink: Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Scallop Edge Border Punches, Stampin’ Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive, Greenhouse Gala DSP


This was not how I was going to layer this card, I had planned to use just a touch of Pumpkin Pie card stock but I like the bright cheery end result of the card.

Meighan - these are lovely. I have struggled with this stamp set but seeing your creations has opened my eyes to other possibilities.

Lynda said...

The first thing that struck me meighan was the colour combo. It's so very striking!!! Kinda reminds me of the wallpaper in an old 70's style kitchen....but in a good way!!) Fab project.
