Share It Sunday Blog Hop – Playing In The Rain Valentine’s Day Card

Thank you for joining us for our Sunday blog hop (of course in Australia this goes live at 3:00am Monday morning, but it is a great start to the working week when we wake up!) There is no theme for this hop, it is for each of us to choose what project we want to share.

Some cards are super fun to make, and this is one of them. I couldn’t stop laughing while I was working on this.

This is one of those cards that combines a few different bundles and stamp sets. You can click here to purchase all the products used to make this card at my online store. This will add all the products to your cart, you can remove any that you don’t want to purchase. The carrot stamp set is a level 1 Sale-A-Bration reward, so don’t forget to redeem it at the checkout.

Below is the replay of my Facebook live from Sunday morning

Hop around and see what everyone else was doing over the weekend.

INK – use the colour challenge to create a project unrelated to the image -{There will generally be 6 colours for the colour challenge you may use some or all colours plus Stampin’ Up! basics range (black, white, vanilla) or
INSPIRATION – use the image subject as inspiration for your project any way you can tie them together is fine. This is the beautiful image for this month:

I knew what stamp set I wanted to use, (I am currently obsessed with carrots) but I wasn’t sure how all the colours would come together. In the end I landed up using all 6 colours!

This is a VW fold card, so it opens out like this:

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you! Our theme this month is Sale-A-Bration, or as I like to call it – The Happiest Time Of The Year!

I have used all sale-A-Bration products in this card. The DSP is Dainty Delight which is a mega DSP pack – it has 48 sheets in the pack, 4 sheets of 12 double sided designs. The stamp set is Beautifully Happy. This is a two step stamping set which suits me perfectly as it saves me from colouring the flowers!

Fragrant Flowers Spot Light

I am happy to be taking part in Kylie’s Monthly International Blog Highlights again.
The theme for this hop is “Thank you”. Many people forget those simple words. I have seen people’s days brightened because someone said a simple thank you to them.
Show your appreciation to people in your lives who have inspired you, helped you or supported you by sending them a thank you card.

When I first got the Fragrant Flowers bundle I was a bit unsure about whether or not I like it. Once I started using it, I quickly came to the realistaion that I LOVE it! When I realised that the dies coordinate with the Favored Flowers DSP, I loved it even more! If you want to see how I made this card, join me foe my Facebook live at 10:00 on Sunday morning (15 January). You can find my Facebook page here.

Favored Flowers Decorated Note Book

During my Facebook live yesterday, I demonstrated how to convert a boring note book into one that you will love writing in using the Sale-A-Bration DSP papers.

You cannot buy this DSP. If you spend $90 you can choose to get the Favored Flowers DSP free. If you spend $180, you can choose the Dandy Designs DSP (this is a mega pack which contains 48 sheets of DSP – 4 sheets of 12 double sided designs). I had a lovely discovery when I realised that the Fragrant Flowers dies cuts out one of the sheets of the Favored Flowers DSP.

New Catalogue Blog Hop – Two-Tone Flora

We are all super excited about the new mini catalogue! Hopefully you have had a copy in your hands for a few days and have your NEED list drawn up. Our blog hop today is using products from this catalogue. I have used Two-Tone Flora. I love this bundle. It doesn’t matter which flowers you stamp, your card comes out beautifully!

I stamped my detailed flowers in Flirty Flamingo for the big flowers and Fresh Freesia for the smaller ones and then stamped off for the fill in so that I got the same colour in a lighter shade, and then die cut the flowers and leaves. The inside of the card has a stamped flower.
