Hues Of Happiness for World Ovarian Cancer Day

Thank you for joining us for the May Blogging Friends hop. This month we are showing our support for World Ovarian Cancer Day – which is on the 8th May. Ovarian cancer is the most lethal of the female cancers. This isn’t one type of cancer, but is the umbrella term for 30 different types of cancers. The colour for ovarian cancer is teal. Translating teal into Stampin’ Up! colours, I have used Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana.

I used the Happiness Abounds bundle to do the stamping and the dies in the bundle to cut out the flowers from the Hues Of Happiness DSP (one of the best features of this suite is that the dies cut out the flowers in the DSP. For the centre panel. I applied Coastal Cabana ink to the Fern 3D Embossing Folder. The Coastal Cabana foil sheet is no longer available, it was from the pack that was part of the Waves Of Inspiration pre-order.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope everyone has a fun and creative weekend. Be sure to hop around and see what everyone else has created.

Wildlife Wonder Angled Gate Fold Card

As I promised in my blog post last Thursday, I made the angled gate fold card during my Facebook live on Sunday. If you missed the original post, you can see it here. (The card shown in that post is slightly different to this one).

I had a bit of a drama during the live when i couldn’t find the DSP for my focal point. I have uploaded the replay (with the oopsie in it, so if you don’t want to watch me making a mess, feel free to fast forward that bit!). This is what the card looks like as it is opening:

Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop – Wildlife Wonder Angled Gate Fold

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Blog-Hop-Header.jpg

Thank you for joining us for this Stampin’ Creative blog hop. The theme for this month is “Fun Folds”. I LOVE fun fold cards. They are usually fairly easy to make, but have that WOW factor. We never discuss what we are doing for this hop, so it is going to be interesting to see if we get any duplicate folds. The card that I have chosen is an angled gate fold:

I used the Wildlife Wonder stamp set for all my stamping. The trees on the Layered Circle is cut with the Grove dies. The DSP is Beauty Of The Earth which will be retiring at the end of April. This DSP is a perfect fit for this stamp set, so if you want some of it, be sure to place your order before it is all gone! This is how the card looks as it opens:

Join me for my Facebook live at 10:00 on Sunday and I’ll show you how I made it. (If you haven’t already found my Facebook page you can click here)
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Below is the list of all the hop participants. Be sure to visit them all to see what they have created. We love hearing from you, so please leave us comments to let us know what you think about our projects.

Let’s Set Sail Z-Fold

If you couldn’t join me for my Facebook live on Sunday morning, this is the card that you missed. Once again, I couldn’t stay away from the New Horizons DSP. I’ll try use something else this week, but no promises! This is a Z-fold card and it open like this:

Although they aren’t shown together in the catalogue, New Horizons DSP is the perfect background to the Let’s Set Sail stamp set. You will need (want) the coordinating Sailboat Builder punch. Remember if you buy them as a bundle, you save 10%

I used a different sheet of the DSP for the live. Now I can’t decide which colour scheme I prefer!

Grassy Grove Fun Fold

Did you manage to watch my Facebook live yesterday? I demonstrated a fun fold card using the Grassy Grove bundle. I told you in my blog post on Thursday that I would be doing this in my live. You can see the original post here. I used a different sheet of the DSP when I did my live. This is the card that I made.

Do you love Facebook lives and are you looking for inspiration? If so this is for you!

Global SU Share fair is a collaboration of international demonstrators. It is an exclusive customer group and every second month we have an event where we each do a Facebook live. We also each use a different stamp set or bundle. There are usually 16 presenters, so you get 16 different projects and you can mix and match the designs and stamp sets to get even more! The April event will be a celebration of our 2 year anniversary. For me, this was a BIG plus that came out of the pandemic. If you are one of my customers who isn’t in the group, please let me know and I’ll send you an invitation. As a bonus for our birthday, invite a friend who loves crafting! Let me know their email address and I’ll send them an invitation too.

Here is the replay of my live:

CASE a friend – Honeybee Home

Thank you for joining us for today’s blog hop. The theme for today is CASE (Copy And Share Everything) a friend. This means that you take inspiration from a card that someone else has made and use it as a start for your own card. You can either copy it exactly, or make small changes, but the original inspiration still shines through.

One of the amazing things about paper crafting, particularly in the virtual world that we now live in, is that you can make friends with people anywhere in the world, without having met them in person. I have a wonderful circle of friends who I have spoken to online, but never face to face and we all get along so well and we all have our crafting in common. One of these friends is Annette McMillan. I “met” Annette through a virtual event that we both participate in, and we have spent hours talking and messaging each other. I love Annette’s work and spent some time looking through her blog posts. Eventually I managed to narrow my options down to one card. This is my card:

This is Annette’s card that I CASE-d. You can see her original post here. I am going to send Annette a message to telling her to visit my blog and see if she likes my take on her card.

*I used the Honeybee Home bundle and Symbols of Fortune DSP. I coloured the Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon with my dark Calypso Coral blend. I couldn’t decide whether I liked that bow or the Pale Papaya Open Weave ribbon, so I just used both bows!
Honey Bee home is one of the products in my Bundle Bonus program. You can find more details about that here

Today you get a double whammy of inspiration with the original and the CASE-d card. Be sure to hop around and see what inspired everyone. Here is the hop listing:
