Paper crafting blog hop- Darling Donkeys SALE-A-BRATION Stamp SeT

PaperCraftingBlogHopBadge

Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring new products from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalogue and the 2021 Sale-A-Bration 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 wanted to use the Darling Donkeys Stamp Set. I also wanted to use the new Blending Brushes. I decided to use sunset type colours and convert the images to silhouettes by colouring them in black. The fact that one donkey had a rose gave me the idea of Valentines Day, so I hand drew the hearts and the ground and grass. Then I went looking for a suitable greeting. I found It in the Geared Up Garage Set. In Australia, many people don’t celebrate Valentines Day and, if they do, its only by couples. My hubbie and I don’t do mushy Valentines but we do mark the occasion, so I felt that this card was perfect. What do you think?

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – September 2020 – Fancy Label Tag Topper Punch

PaperCraftingBlogHopBadge

Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring punches in the 2020 Annual and the Holiday Catalogues.  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.  Wasn’t her project amazing? Either way, you’re in the right place!

I wasn’t sure how to approach this hop. But I thought about up and coming events and I realised that I needed a gift for my lovely hubbie for our anniversary, not of our wedding, but of our first date. I thought he needed a gift- so I decided on a gift box and I was inspired by Heidi at Flutterby – I haven’t decided what the gift will be, but I have the dimensions! One of my fav gifts for him is smoked salmon – simple, but a luxury that he loves. Now, to find some that will fit into this box!

How does this relate to punches you ask? The answer lies in the flap on the lid. I used the Fancy Label Tag Topper punch to create that flap. The punch made it so easy and looks attractive while being functional too.

WinterWoodsCardStampinUpAnnetteMcMillan13052020

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.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – April – Thinking of You

PaperCraftingBlogHopBadge

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

InspiringIrisCardStampinUpAnnetteMcMillan07042020.jpg

I was inspired to make this card when I was perusing Pinterest. I found a number of cards that had blurry, bright watercoloured backgrounds, combined with bold metallic embossing. While my card is a tad different, I was really pleased with how rich the delicate lines of the stamped images look when heat embossed in gold, especially with the yummy orangey-yellow-pink watercolouring. I am not normally really taken with orangey tones but found this combination, which I stole from the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper, to be very pleasing.

Supplies used:

  • Stamps: –Inspiring Iris, Beautiful Moments
  • Card: –Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Whisper White, Gold Foil
  • Ink : – Versamark, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight Grapefruit Grove, Granny Apple Green
  • Tools: – Aqua Pen, Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder, Painted Labels Dies, Stitched Shapes Dies
  • Embellishments: – Gold embossing powder, Glitter Enamel Dots

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

Paper Crafting Blog Hop- Happy Birthday To You

PaperCraftingBlogHopBadge

Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring a Happy Birthday theme.  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 inspiration from them. You may have started here, or arrived from Anastasia Radloff’s fabulous blog.  Either way, you’re in the right place.

I was inspired to create my card when I saw this card by Artisan design Team Member, Stesha Bloodhart. I just loved the white splattered look, with the vellum and sparkles, so I set about making it my own, using different colours and introducing a different fold – a Corner Tuck Fold card. I also used the beautiful Champagne Rhinestones which look lovely with the Petal Pink.

A closer look.
