Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Wonderful World Shadow Stamping

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 “Encouragement”. There are so many different sentiments you can use and so many different ways in which people need a little encouragement. A card to let someone know that you are thinking about them can change a whole day from miserable to wonderful!
You may be starting your hop here, or you may have landed from Maureen Rauchfuss’ blog. Did you love her project?

I have used the flower from the Wonderful World stamp set (which is part of the Wonder World bundle and is a level 2 Sale-A-Bration item). The sentiment and background texture is from the Season Of Chic stamp set and the rough edges are easily created using the Deckled Rectangles dies.

If you want to learn how to do the shadow stamping, join me at 11:00 on Sunday morning (Australian Eastern Standard Time) on my Facebook page and I will show you howto make this card.

Be sure to complete the hop to see all the wonderful ideas that we have to share with you. The next stop is Shirley Merker. I can’t wait to see what she has created this month – she is using the cutest stamp set in the July – December mini catalogue!

Combining Hues Of happiness with True Beauty

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.

I love the background die cut from the Blossoming Happiness dies and it works so well with the flower from True Beauty bundle. Below is the replay of my Facebook live showing how I made this card.

Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop – Cottage Rose

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

Thank you for joining us for this month’s Stampin’ Creative blog hop. The theme for this month is “Simple Stamping”. The definition of simple stamping is to use stamps, inks and paper only. Many of us (me included) can;’t get away from adding some embellishments or ribbon to our cards. I decided to limit myself to one stamp set and one colour of ink and paper. this is the end result:

I did need to restrain myself as I really wanted to add some embellishments! However, this stamp is so pretty that it really doesn’t need anything extra. As always, I stamped the inside of the card to match and it does have a matching envelope.

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.

Creativity Abounds Blog Hop – Sending Smiles in 2022-2024 In Colors

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is CA-Header-1024x534.jpeg

Welcome to our May Creativity Abounds Blog Hop. We are a group of very keen Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world that are coming together to share our creative ideas with you. We are happy that you can join us and hope that we can Inspire your creativity.

If you live in Australia and shop with me you will receive this tutorial bundle FREE! This tutorial bundle showcases the 2022-2024 In Colors and we use a variety of products with the colours. In this blog hop we each offer a bonus project which compliments the tutorial bundle. I have chosen Sending Smiles to use for my card.

The torn out of a notebook look on the edge of the Basic White layer was made using the Blossoming Happiness dies (keep checking back, next week I will be giving details for the July Stamp Camp which uses the Hues Of Happiness suite). The colours aren’t showing up very well in the photo, but my bow is actually a double two tone bow using the Starry Sky and Orchid Oasis Metallic Ribbon.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Tasteful Touches

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is SUBlogHop-1024x482.jpg

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 “Flowers”. There are so many floral stamp sets in our catalogues that it is difficult to choose just one. You may be starting your hop here, or you may have landed from Maureen Rauchfuss’ blog. Did you love her project?

I decided to use one of my favourite flowers which is on the last chance list. It is from the Tasteful Touches stamp set. The last time I checked this set is still available in Australia, and as a bonus it is 50% off. I added more flowers in the background with the Pretty Flowers embossing folder. You might be surprised to know that the DSP is New Horizons. It probably isn’t a piece that you have seen too often as we all tend to use the pieces that create a scene, but this is one of the reverse sides. The sentiment is from Flowering Tulips stamp set.

Be sure to complete the hop to see all the wonderful ideas that we have to share with you. The next stop is Terri Stewart. I can’t wait to see what she has created this month.

I stamped my images with the additional rectangle on top of the card front and then coloured in the flowers on the rectangle. Then I ran the rectangle through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine with the Bark 3D embossing folder.

I hope that my card has inspired you. We have an amazing line up of Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators, and we know you are going to love all the creativity that is being showcased today. Remember you are currently on my page – Tracy Held. See who is below me to know where to go next.

There are some products that will be retiring soon, so if you want them you need to order them ASAP to avoid disappointment. The star of the card is the Artistically Inked bundle. this set is carrying over, but in the new catalogue will no longer be available at the bundled price (less 10%). The other retiring items are the Pattern Party DSP and the 2021-2023 In Color jewels. The die that i used for the sentiment is one that probably never though it would be used like this – it is from the Horizon dies.

As always, I stamped the inside of the card too

Pansy Petals Birthday Card

Thank you for joining us for the April Blogging Friends hop. The theme for this hop is “Flowers” The northern hemisphere is moving into warmer weathers and will have flowers in bloom, and in the southern hemisphere we are heading for cooler weather and the flowers on cards that don’t die will be keeping our spirits up.

Pansy Petals is one of the bundles that will be carrying over to the new catalogue, but the DSP will not. One of the fun features of this DSP is that the images on it co-ordinate with the Pansy dies. This is one of the projects that I did for the Bundle Bonus collaboration. If you would like to know more about this, you can find the details here. The card has a surprise inside.

Here is the video that was part of the Bundle Bonus

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.
