Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Fall

PaperCraftingBlogHopBadge

Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring the theme Fall.  I am excited to share another project with you today.  Fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe are participating, so we have lots of fun projects to share with you. I hope you get loads of creative inspiration from them. You may have started here, or arrived from the talented Tracy Held’s blog.  Wasn’t her project amazing? Either way, you’re in the right place!

When I saw that the theme was Fall (we call it autumn in Australia, and it is spring here at the moment) I knew I would use the Beauty of the Earth DSP. The colours in this paper are so vibrant and have strong “autumnal” overtones. I also decided that these colours would lend themselves to a Thinking of You card. This is what I came up with.

Karen led a project to create these amazing cards. These are all of our creations. Above shows them closed and below shows them open. Aren’t they incredible? Will be so hard to give them away.

Many of the supplies we used have now retired, so are no longer available, but the Timeless Tulips stamp set and coordinating Tulip punch are still available. See link for my online shop below.

We had a card swap based on the patterned cardstock we created at the previous month’s meet using the shaving cream technique. We used Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive inks.

I think we did a great job designing all of these cards. Frances used the Simply Succulents Stamp Set. Karen used the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle, the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder and the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, the Birthday Chick Dies and the Painted Texture Embossing Folder. Anne used the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder and the Double Oval punch. Vicki used the Stitched Rectangle Dies. All of these products are available in the current Annual Catalogue.

I hope you are inspired by our cards. I’d love to know what you think. We had so much fun making them. If you would like to be part of my team and join us for these meets, click on the link below.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Happy Birthday

PaperCraftingBlogHopBadge

Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring the theme Happy Birthday.  I am excited to share another project with you today.  Fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe are participating, so we have lots of fun projects to share with you. I hope you get loads of creative inspiration from them. You may have started here, or arrived from the talented Tracy Held’s blog.  Wasn’t her project amazing? Either way, you’re in the right place!

I wanted to make a card for a friend who had a birthday this week and I know she likes bright colours. I started with the DSP. Then I decided to create a Pinwheel Tower card. One of my team led us in making these last month. I had the idea of doing the silhouette look because the DSP is bright on one side but black and white on the other. The rest of the supplies and styling just evolved as I went.

September Suite of the Month

SuiteoftheMonthLogo

The 2021-22 Annual Catalogue is full of awesome NEW paper crafting products. I have joined with a global group of demonstrators to offer an amazing Suite of the Month program using products from this catalogue. If you don’t yet have a copy of the catalogue, contact me and I will arrange for you to get one.

One product suite is highlighted each month. I hope these suites are on your wish lists because you will earn a FREE make and take kit when you order the designated suite. My Youtube assembly video link will be emailed to you so that you can assemble your kit at your leisure.

In addition, I am collaborating with other demonstrators who will be sharing 2 projects each using the same product suite. This month, there are 5 demonstrators, so you get 10 FREE video tutorials. Although you will only get the kit for my make ‘n takes, you will be able to make all the other projects because you have purchased the suite! Much as we would like to buy everything in the catalogue, we also have to choose which are our favourite favourites, so the demonstrators can vary from month to month.

I will need some time to prepare your kit and post it to you. When I see an order come through with the designated Suite of the Month, I’ll send off your make and take kit to you that month.

You are welcome to order any other products on the same order so that you can earn and spend host rewards host rewards but if your order is under $250 (excluding shipping) please use the host code for that month shown in the sidebar of this blog when ordering.

Here are the Suites being featured each month. The page numbers refer to the 2021-22 annual catalogue unless stated otherwise.

Fun Fold Cards – Avid Inkers Team Meeting

At the end of June, members of the Avid Inkers Team met after a long break. It happened to be one of the member’s 50th birthday. She said she couldn’t think of a nicer way to celebrate her special day. That’s a lot to live up to but we had serious fun, including a rainbow birthday cake. It’s great that my team is also part of a bigger team which meets periodically.

We made two mystery projects, both fun fold cards, which were led by Vicki and Karen.

FancyFoldCards1StampinUpAnnetteMcMillan21082021
Vicki led the the project to create a Trifold Spanner Panel card. These are the landscape shaped cards. Karen led a projects to create a Pop Out Swing Card, which are portrait shaped. The pic above shows everyone’s cards. We had so much fun making them and they were all gorgeous (and FLORAL!)

This pic shows my version of Vicki’s Trifold Spanner Panel Card.

SUPPLIES:

  • Stamps: –Hand Penned (Front of Card Image) Art Gallery (greeting on second layer), Celebrate with Flowers (greeting on bottom layer)
  • Inks: – Highland Heather, Bumble Bee, Mossy Meadow, Memento Black,
  • Card: – Highland Heather, Bumble Bee, Whisper White, Window Sheet, Pansy Petals DSP
  • Tools: – Paper Trimmer, Paper Snips, aquapen
  • Embellishments: – Pearl

This pic shows my take on Karen’s Pop Out Swing Card. Notice that it has a panel stuck to the inside of the card front, which makes it operate much more smoothly than the traditional design of this card fold.

SUPPLIES:

  • Stamps: – Art Gallery, (front image ), Enjoy the Moment, (front greeting), Celebrate with Flowers (dragonflies and inside greeting- worked so well being vertical),
  • Inks: – Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow, Bumble Bee
  • Card: – Merry Merlot, Whisper White, Beauty of the Earth DSP
  • Tools: – Floral Gallery Dies, Banners Pick-A-Punch, Blending Brushes
  • Embellishments: – Gilded Gems

I hope you are inspired by the projects I have shared here. I would love to have you join my small, enthusiastic team. And, during the SaleABration promotion, you can earn even more rewards for joining my team. see link below.

That’s it for now, thanks for stopping by, till next time,
