Paper Crafting Blog Hop – February 2024 – Sale-A-Bration

PaperCraftingBlogHopBadge

Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring the theme Sale-A-Bration.  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 Jungle Pals stamp set, which is one of the items you can choose for FREE when you spend over $90AUS on Stampin’ Up! products during Sale-A-Bration 2024 (January or February). It has a coordinating die set which you can choose when you purchase products to the value $180AUS. I don’t have these dies yet, but I couldn’t wait to create a card with this stamp set, so I fussy cut the animals. I used the Circle Sayings stamp set for the greeting and the 2 3/8 ” (6cm) circle punch to curve the edge of the greeting panel. (These two products coordinate and are available as a bundle (with 10% discount during the life of the current Annual catalogue). I used the Perched in A Tree stamps for the branch and cut it with the coordinating Aspen Tree Dies. Finally, I stamped some greenery using the new ( In the January-April 2024 Mini Catalogue) Planted Paradise Stamp set, and fussy cut the images.

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.

UsingDSPGraphic_StampinUp_AnnetteMcMillan_05012023

I decided to use one of the DSP packs which are available FREE during the Sale-A-Bration promotion, which ends this month. I thought I would find a design where the DSP was the card and I found this design by US SU demo Karen Titus and thought it was perfect.

This design can also be varied to turn the card into a gift wallet as shown in the pics below.

Stamps: – Biggest Wish

Inks: –  Crushed Curry, Lost Lagoon

Card: – Basic White, Poppy Parade, Trusty Toolbox DSP

Tools: – Wanted To Say Dies, Paper Snips, Simply Scored Scoring Tool

Embellishments: Stampin’ Dimensionals,

Let’s Craft Together Blog Hop – January 2024 – Picture Inspiration

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 Picture Challenge which was created by Tracy Held and is shown below. I am really excited to have joined this talented group. I know you will be inspired by our hops.

I decided to try to emulate the image. I love using messy techniques and trying new ones. I wondered how I could achieve a shine like the one on the dress. In a nutshell, I stamped all the colours randomly over a sheet of basic white using a small leaf stamp, then used a black watercolor pencil to create the background and shadows. I added “creases” using a black marker and, lastly clear embossed the whole panel before shaping with paper snips.

  • Stamps – Planted Paradise Stamp Set, Quiet Meadow Stamp Set, Go To Greetings Stamp Set
  • Card – Basic Black, Berry Burst, Basic White
  • Inks – Smoky Slate, Bubble Bath, Berry Burst, Blackberry Bliss, Blueberry Bushell, Pecan Pie, Watercolor Pencils 1, Versamark, Basic Black Marker
  • Tools – Meadow Dies, Exposed Brick 3D Embossing Folder, Water Painters, Paper Snips
  • Embellishments – Festive Pearls, Basics Embossing Powder, White Bakers Twine

I hope you are inspired by my card. I’d love to know what you think. Make sure you hop all the way around and see the inspiration that everyone has shared, and don’t forget to leave a comment. We all love to get comments on our projects.

PaperCraftingBlogHopBadge

Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring the theme Thank You.  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!

During October, Stampin’ Up! ran a free event for World Card Making Day (WCMD) which I participated in. The cards made used the Earthen Textures Bundle. I have this bundle, but like many, have mainly used it with the earthy colours in the coordinating Earthen Elegance Designer Series Paper. The WCMD event, though, used some very bright colours and I loved them. So here is one card I made during the event which I cased for this hop.
