Stampin’ creative Blog Hop – Season Of Chic

Thank you for joining us for this month’s Stampin’ Creative blog hop. The theme for this is Wow Cards!

This is my card for today, it is a simple fun fold, and the wow comes in when it starts to open

This is a really easy card to make. Start with a piece of card stock 21.0 x 21.0 cm
(8 1/4 x 8 1/4in). Score along the top and the left side at 7.0 cm (2 3/4 in) measure and mark 14cm (5.5 in) right and down from the top left corner. Score diagonally from one mark to the other. Fold and burnish the score lines pushing the diagonal lines towards each other. If these instructions aren’t making sense, join me for my Facebook live on Sunday morning at 10:00 am (Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time – daylight savings come in on Sunday morning at 2:00am) and I will show you how it all comes together.

Be sure to hop around and see what all the other ladies have created to wow us. Below is the link list:

Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop

Welcome to the September 2022 Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You may be starting at my blog or landed here from another one.
Each month there is a new Inspirational image and colour challenge, you can use either part to create your project. Either
INK – use the colour challenge to create a project unrelated to the image -{There will generally be 5 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:

If you subscribe to my blog, it probably feels like all you have had is blog notifications as this is the third blog hop that has happened today. While this does sometimes happen, it is unusual that I use the same stamp set 3 times in one day. I was planning on using the Cup Of Tea stamp set, but when I was making my card Kindest Gnomes wouldn’t leave me alone! I eventually gave in and combines the two

You are currently visiting Tracy Held at Trace Of Creativity in Australia. Please see the list below & hop through all of the other participants to see how they were inspired by the gorgeous picture.

Art Gallery Two Step Stamping

Thank you for joining us for this month’s Technique Tuesday blog hop. The technique we are sharing today is two step stamping. As soon as I saw the theme, I knew that I wanted to pull out my Art Gallery stamp set and stamp it with the new In Colors.

Share It Sunday – Hippest Hippos

Thank you for joining us for our Sunday blog hop (of course in Australia this goes live at 1:00am 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.

Sadly Sale-A-Bration will soon be ending. Today is my sister’s birthday and she LOVES the Hippest Hippos! I had a whole pile of cards so that everyone in the family could give one to her. Here all the hippo cards that I have been working on. The first two are the same but use different paper from the Sale-A-Bration Silver and Gold DSP.

The next 2 are also the same design, but use different colours and different little shapes from the Hippo dies:

The last one uses the 2022-2022 In Color Assortment DSP and the Basic Borders Dies

my sister was really excited with all her hippo cards. If you want this stamp set and matching dies be sure to place your order by 31st August.
Hop around and see what everyone else was doing over the weekend.

I used a number of the Sale-A-Bration items in this card. These are only available until the end of August, so if you want any of them be sure to get your order in and redeem them for free before they are gone for good! The circles are from the Rings Of Love DSP, the background is the Wonderful World DSP and the little flowers are from the Hippo dies. The sentiment is from the Happiness Abounds stamp set.
