Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Quite Curvy with Gilded Autumn DSP

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 “Fall cards using DSP”. You may have arrived from Carol Payne’s blog. Didn’t she have a great project?

My card gives a sneak peek of a new bundle that will be coming in the new catalogue, and is available as a pre-order from 3 November, it is called Quite Curvy. This is a really fun stamp set and I can see that i will be getting lots of use from the dies. I have used the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP. The Autumn punch pack will punch out the leaves and acorns on the DSP.

I recently took part in a creative challenge. We were given the components, and asked to make a card. The list was: choose your colour of your card base, a neutral colour for the first layer embossed with an embossing folder, 4 pieces of DSP 9.5cm x 3cm, a shape for the sentiment and ribbon and embellishments.
For this card I have used thinner strips of DSP as 3cm was a bit thick. I love the versatility of this card. Choose any sentiment that you like and use the DSP to make your #.

Today we are CASEing the May Share Fair projects. We created a tutorial bundle with all of these fantastic ideas. I had a really hard time deciding which idea to CASE, but after looking through the bundle numerous times, I decided to CASE Sandra Robert’s fancy fold note card. This is the third project in the pdf tutorial. Sandra managed to make her card using one bundle, but I used a few different stamp sets on mine Here is her card (first photo) and my version of it

I used the Beauty Abounds and Butterfly Wishes stamp sets, painted labels dies, Flowers For every Season DSP and the butterfly duet punch.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Time To Celebrate with All Dressed Up

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 “Happy Birthday”. You may have arrived from Shirley Merker’s blog. I always love seeing what she has created to share with us!

If you didn’t start your hop here, you might think you are in the wrong hop, because I am completely off theme. I got this month’s theme wrong!! Apologies to my fellow bloggers for my error, but I hope that you enjoy my off-theme design in any case.

We are still in stage 4 lock down, and as you do when you can’t go out, I went browsing online! I saw a few different handbags which were plain in front and had a patterned or textured side. I immediately decided that I wanted to recreate that in paper. I made the bag using the All Dressed Up dies. The card is made using a note card (so that it fits inside the bag) and the Hooray To You stamp set. Once again the In Good Taste DSP has landed up in my hands. I am going to try it out using the Rococo Rose DSP too!

Layering Squares Thank You card

Thank you for visiting today as I join Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world in playing along with our friend Kylie’s International Blog Highlights to share cards that show appreciation.
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 or project.

This card was a little bit fiddly. It took me a long time to get the squares cut out (mostly) even. I love the overall effect, so I think that the time taken was well worth it.

If you like this card, please vote for me by clicking on the button below. Keep spreading happiness by sending cards to anyone who touches your life. A handmade card in the post box brings joy to the worst day

Colour Inkspiration #83

I am a little bit late in posting this, as the colour challenge actually finished a week ago, but better late than never! I enjoy taking part in colour challenges. They sometimes push me out of my comfort zone and force me to work with colours that aren’t my regular go-to colours, and other times inspire me to use combinations that I hadn’t considered.

This challenge forced me to do both. Green isn’t one of my favourite colours, but this combination really works well together. I was very excited to be placed in the top 5 of the entries for this challenge.

Below is my Facebook Live video showing how I made these cards.

Blossoms in Bloom with Artistry Blooms DSP – VLOG Hop

I am very excited about today’s post! You might know that I set up my YouTube Channel a couple of weeks ago and today I am participating in my First VLOG hop!

This is the card that I am going to be demonstrating. Please hop over to my video to see how easy it is to make. I will be doing more videos and uploading them over the next few weeks, so please subscribe to my channel to be kept up to date when new videos are uploaded

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Herringbone Technique

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 “Designer Series Paper Spotlight”. You may have arrived from Shirley Merker’s blog. Wasn’t her project fantastic?

I was recently shown how to do the herring bone technique, and what better way is there to show off the beautiful DSP in the new catalogue? You need very few supplies for this technique – a piece to place your DSP onto, some adhesives sheets and DSP strips cut to 1cm. You can use whatever sentiment appeals to you. I wanted to keep it small so that I didn’t cover too much of the design. The sentiment is from the Lovely You stamp set and cut out with a stitched oval.

You can choose a specific colour scheme, or use each V in a different colour. I have a video showing how I made these cards, so pop back tomorrow to get the tutorial.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Tasteful Textures

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 “Happy Birthday”. You may have arrived from Shirley Merker’s blog. I always love seeing what she has created to share with us!

I used a whole mixture if different stamp sets and accessories for this card. Most of these products are not together in the catalogue, but they all came to mind in my creative process. The flowers are from the Tasteful Textures stamp set, the greeting is from the Happiest of Birthdays set (appropriate for the theme), the embossing folder is Greenery which is part of the Forever Greenery suite.

The DSP is the In Good Taste which is part of the In Good Taste suite. When you first look at this DSP it is good for masculine cards. It is all wood and brick textures. By usine the ones that has some pink in them ans using small pieces, it manages to come out soft and feminine.

These are the supplies I used in my card
