Welcome to this month’s Blog Hop by Let’s Craft Together and thank you for joining us. We are a group 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.

Each month one of us sets a challenge that we use for the blog hop. This month’s challenge is a Tic Tac Toe Challenge which was created by Carolina Evans and is shown below:

I chose the vertical line down the middle- Masculine, Favourite Stamp Set, Fun Fold. Although this may not be my favourite stamp set, I do love it and this is the first time I have used it and I’m very happy with the way it turned out. I think it is a perfect masculine card. The fold is called an Envelope Flap card. The edge of the DSP flap tucks in behind the white circle die cut.

And here’s a closer look at the cool little bird.

I decided to use something metallic, earthy and pretty. This led me to selecting the Planted Paradise Stamp Set and a technique called Faux Patina, to achieve a weathered look.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – April 2024 – Retiring Products

PaperCraftingBlogHopBadge

Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring the theme of retiring products.  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 chose to use the Painted Lavender Bundle, because I love it. Fortunately, it is not retiring, but many of my favourites will not carry over to the new catalogue. I came across this design for a trellis card and I thought it would look just lovely with the spray of lavender on it. I hope you agree.

I will miss the beautiful Go To Greetings Stamp Set when it retires soon.
