PAPER CRAFTING BLOG HOP – MAY – THINKING OF YOU GUYS – WINTER WOODS

PaperCraftingBlogHopBadge

Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring the theme Thinking of You Guys.  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 Maureen Rauchfuss’s blog.  Either way, you’re in the right place!

When deciding what I would create for this blog hop, I started thinking about what makes a card masculine. I decided that it was the colours used, texture and metallics. Often, thinking of you cards are for a sad occasion, and flowers or butterflies come to mind, but not for a male. So, I was thinking, Lovely As A Tree stamp set….Oh no, it’s retired. So I was wondering what I had that was similar and I thought of the Winter Woods stamp set. I’ve seen lots of lovely Christmas cards made with these “wintery trees”. My thoughts then went to neutral colours, texture and metallics, and this card was born.

I hope my card inspires you.  I have listed all supplies below. Please add a comment and let me know what you liked about it before clicking the next image to hop to Shirley Merker’s blog in the United States to see what fun ideas she has to share.

Beautiful Moments Card

BeautifulMomentsCardStampinUpAnnetteMcMillan12052020

My team of demonstrators (Netty’s Inkers) had a virtual meeting last month to share some quality crafting time via Zoom. I had chosen a sketch challenge for everyone to use from Create with Connie and Mary. The card shown was what I came up with and I was quite pleased with it. In fact everyone created great cards using the sketch. Card sketches are a great way to develop your creativity because they give you a place to start, and you can then bring in the supplies that you have on hand. I selected the colour scheme based on the paper, so easy!

May Global SU Fair Share

GlobalSU ShareFairLogo_StampinUp_AnnetteMcMillan_08052020

I am thrilled to have been invited to present again at the second Global SU Share Fair. It starts at 4.30pm (AEST)  on Saturday 16 May in Australia, heads over to Europe, then over to the US and Canada, ending at 8am (AEST) on Sunday 17 May . My presentation will go live at 5.15pm (AEST).

For this Facebook Live event, I have teamed with 16 Stampin’ Up! demonstrators around the globe to bring Facebook Live video demonstrations into your stamp space.  

So, in Australia we can start watching at 4.30pm, continue to watch presentations from the UK and if we stay up late we will get to watch some in the US and Canada. We can return to watch any we have missed at a later stage.

Demonstrators will share short videos beforehand in the group letting us know what products to gather from our stamp space to create along on the day. If you don’t have the exact supplies, gather similar items you do have. Share what you create along with us in the group.

Joining the Facebook Global SU Share Fair is by invitation only, and only customers of demonstrator presenters are allowed in the group. Sorry, demonstrators that are not presenters are not allowed to join the group. Please contact me if you want to join the group. If you are not a current customer of mine, place an order through my online store by clicking here and you will be a customer after placing that order.

There is a Show Special to use when placing your order.  See image at top of this page for details.

This month, the theme is retiring stamps. I have chosen to present a project using the Painted Glass Stamp Set.

I’d love you to join me.

Thanks for popping By……………………………………
