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 & Inspiration Blog Hop – Thanks A Bunch

Welcome to the January 2023 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 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:

Paper crafting Blog Hop – Beautifully Happy

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!

Be sure to hop all the way around and see how the others have used their Sale-A-Bration freebies. Please leave comments for us – we love getting feedback about our work!

These are the cards have the WOW factor, but are sometimes quite easy to make even though they look complicated. We have 13 ideas for this occasion. Our blog hop each month is a project along the theme of the tutorial, but is a different design from the tutorial project.

I demonstrated this card at a virtual event last weekend using a different sheet of the Favored Flowers DSP.

Below is the replay of my Facebook live. Apologies in advance for the poor quality of the video. Facebook has decided that it will only allow me to download my videos in low quality. I have a fix foe next time, but unfortunately I didn’t know this until I downloaded the presentation!

Here is a sneak peek of all the projects in this month’s tutorial bundle

You may be starting here or have come from someone else’s blog – either way there is a list at the end of this post to help you move around all the different blogs and see all the amazing projects that will be demonstrated at the Stamp Camp. We all have our country listed – so if you are looking for a demonstrator in your country, these demonstrators would love to look after you with your Stampin’ Up!® shopping or if you would like to join our Stampin’ Up!® teams.

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.

Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop

As you go through this hop, you can start drawing up your wish list! I am using two Sale-A-Bration items in my card – In The Country and Sending Support stamp sets

The other detail on the card comes from the Ringed With Nature bundle. this gorgeous bundle is carrying over from the July – December 2022 mini catalogue, but will no longer be available at the discounted bundle price. If this is on your wish list, be sure to order it by the 4th January.

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.

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 “Congratulations with a DSP spotlight”. There are so many different reasons to send a congratulations card – I have chosen one for a new home.

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. I fussy cut some of the houses from the DSP and used them to decorate the insert
