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.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Kindest Gnomes

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 July – December 2022 mini catalogue. This gives us heaps of options for projects – I have gone with one of my favourite suites in the catalogue, Storybook Gnomes

This is one of the easiest cards that you can make because all of the images are cut out of the DSP! Don’t you love it when the dies match the images on the paper? Fussy cut a toadstool for the inside, and your card is done!

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

Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop – Hippest Hippo

Thank you for joining us for this month’s Stampin’ Creative blog hop. The theme for this is “Summer Sunshine”. Being in the southern hemisphere, we are freezing our little toes off, while our friends up north don’t know how to cope with the heat they are experiencing. It is so sad the we can’t send some cool air up to them, they can send some warm air to us and then everyone can be happy!!

Even though we don’t have much summer sunshine at the moment, I think my card definitely has a summery feel to it

If you don’t have the Hippest Hippos yet, you only have until the end of August to redeem them (free) as a Sale-A-Bration item and then they will be gone forever! I used all 3 hippos from the set on my car, the third one is hiding inside!

I am sure that the other ladies on the hop have some lovely sunny ideas to share with us, so be sure to hop all the way around.
