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.

Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop – Wonderful World DSP

Thank you for joining us for this month’s Stampin’ Creative blog hop. The theme for this “Creative Colouring”. Unfortunately for me, colouring is one place where my creativity is lacking. I have taken a huge amount of poetic licence with this one, and used DSP to selectively colour parts of the lattice.

The DSP will be available tomorrow and is part of the Wonderful World level 2
Sale-A-Bration reward. The flowers on the card were fussy cut from the another piece of the DSP pack. The sentiment is from the Charming Sentiments bundle which is well on its way to becoming my favourite bundle!

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

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.

Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop – Let’s Set Sail

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

Thank you for joining us for this Stampin’ Creative blog hop. The theme for this month is “Masculine Makes” We all seem to find masculine cards a bit more challenging. There are so many beautiful floral stamp sets, you are spoiled for choice when it comes to making feminine cards, but we battle to make cards for the men in our lives. Fortunately, there are some lovely masculines stamp sets that are available at the moment. One of my favourites is Let’s Set Sail. As an added bonus, you can bundle it with the Sailboat Builder punch.

This is a faux step card and look like this from the side

I have had a crazy couple of weeks, so things aren’t as up to date as I would like them to be. Check back here on Sunday, and I will have instructions on how to make this card posted.

Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop – Wildlife Wonder Angled Gate Fold

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

Thank you for joining us for this Stampin’ Creative blog hop. The theme for this month is “Fun Folds”. I LOVE fun fold cards. They are usually fairly easy to make, but have that WOW factor. We never discuss what we are doing for this hop, so it is going to be interesting to see if we get any duplicate folds. The card that I have chosen is an angled gate fold:

I used the Wildlife Wonder stamp set for all my stamping. The trees on the Layered Circle is cut with the Grove dies. The DSP is Beauty Of The Earth which will be retiring at the end of April. This DSP is a perfect fit for this stamp set, so if you want some of it, be sure to place your order before it is all gone! This is how the card looks as it opens:

Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop – Home Sweet Home

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

Thank you for joining us for this Stampin’ Creative blog hop. The theme for this month is “Home Sweet Home!” I had the funniest thing happen a few weeks ago – I have a friend in Scotland and I ordered flowers for her for her birthday. She sent me a message to say thanks for the flowers and I’ll be using the bird seed at my new place. I couldn’t understand the message until I saw the photo that she sent:

I really don’t know why bird seed was sent with the flowers. If I had ordered animal food, it would have been dog biscuits as she has the cutest dachshund. If nothing else, we both had a good laugh about the bird seed. I decided that I would continue the theme and send her a card for her new home.

This is the view from the top of the card

Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop – Party Time!!

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

Thank you for joining us for the December 2021 Stampin’ Creative blog hop. The theme for this month is “Party Time!” As we approach the end of the year, I think that everybody is ready to party- either to celebrate the end of 2021 or to welcome in 2022. The last 2 years have been hard, and we are all hoping that 2022 is going to be getting back to a new normal.

I have made a Z-fold card using the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set and Love you More Than dies with the Rainbow Glimmer Paper. The sentiment is cut from the (soon to be retired) Black Glitter Paper and Word Wishes dies

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 Party Times they have to share.

Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop – Christmas Cheer

Thank you for joining us for the November 2021 Stampin’ Creative blog hop. The theme for this month is “Christmas Cheer”. I have decided to use the Ever Eden DSP for my card. Remember, this suite is a pre-order for the January – June 2022 mini catalogue, and the DSP is only available as part of the pre-order. If you want some, you need to place your order ASAP as it is only available while stocks last.

Last month after World Card Making Day, we had world card sending week. I received this card from Leona Bourgault in the USA, and I loved everything about the card, so I had to try and CASE it.

For my card, I inked up my Evergreen Forest 3D embossing folder with Soft Succulent ink and then ran it through my Cut & Emboss machine. Using a standard card base, I cut 5cm (2″) off one edge and then cut that strip into my 3 squares.

Measurements:
Base (Soft Succulent) – 14.9cm x 16.0cm scored at 10.5cm (5 1/2″ x 2 1/4″ scored at 4 1/4″)
Cut the strip that you cut off into 3 equal squares 4.95cm (1 7/8″)
Insert (Basic White) – 14.4cm x 10.0cm (5 1/4″ x 4″)
Basic White (tree embossed) – 5.0cm x 14.4cm (2″ x 5 1/4″)
DSP – 5.0cm x 14.4cm (2″ x 5 1/4″)
– 3 pieces 4.5cm x 4.5cm (1 3/8″ x 1 3/8″)

Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop – Blessings Of Home

Thank you for joining us for the October 2021 Stampin’ Creative blog hop. The theme for this month is “Nature’s Beauty”. This theme is wide open, but I have decided to give you a sneak peek of a suite, Heart & Home which will be in the new mini catalogue. This stamp set has a large floral image and a smaller bouquet.

I stamped the flowers onto vellum with Versamark ink and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder. They were coloured in with my Stampin’ Blends and cut out with the coordinating dies. Below is the card with the large image.

The DSP is Heart and Hone which is part of the suit. The one side has coloured floral and leafy images, and the reverse side has different wood grain textures in grey and white. If you love these cards, add them to the top of your wish list to order in January when the new catalogue goes live!
