Let’s Craft Together – Pansy Patch

Thank you for joining us for our Let’s Craft Together blog hop. We are a quartet of multi cultural Stampin’ Up! demonstrators in Australia who have developed a strong friendship though our love of stamping and our admiration of each other’s style of crafting. For we have a sketch challenge:

This is always an interesting time of the year as we wait for the new catalogue and wonder which of our favourite stamps are going to retire. I pulled out a favourite that I haven’t used for a while – Pansy Patch. This is my interpretation of the sketch

ESAD Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop- Beautifully Happy

Thanks for joining us for another ESAD blog hop! If you are wondering what ESAD means, here is an explanation.

The theme for this hop is Sale-A-Bration. I always say that Sale-A-Bration is the happiest time of the year. It is where you get free goodies – the type of things that money can’t buy. The only way to get them is to put in a qualifying order, and get them free! We are into the last few days of this promotion. After the 28th of February you will no longer be able to get these products. I have used the level 2 item- Beautifully Happy for my card.

The embellishment in the centre of my flower is a sneak peek of the Loose Frosted Dots embellishments that will be available from the beginning of March as an online exclusive product.

Thanks for stopping by today. Next up is Sharon Dalton. Let’s hop over and see what fabulous project she has created for us.

Creativity Abounds Blog Hop – Dainty Delight

Welcome to our December 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 month’s tutorial bundle show cases birthday cards. These are the cards that are most often given out, and 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 stamped the greeting towards the left side using the Go To Greetings stamp set. I then embossed with the Let’s Celebrate embossing folder above and below the sentiment. Use your Paper Trimmer to score above and below the embossing for the extra definition. The flowers and leaves are a sneak peek of the Dainty Details bundle that is in the January – April 2022 mini catalogue.

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.

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 didn’t manage to incorporate Pumpkin Pie into my card, but I got all the others

This was one of those cards that used lots of different products: Happiness Abounds bundle, Basic Borders dies and Eden dies. The ribbon is the White Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon that I smooshed into my Evening Evergreen ink pad. I repeated the edging on the insert

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.

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:
