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.

PAPER CRAFTING BLOG HOP – AUGUST – IN GOOD TASTE

PaperCraftingBlogHopBadge

Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring Suites in the 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!

InGoodTasteSuiteStampinUpAnnetteMcMillan18082020

I chose to create a project using the In Good Taste Suite. The suite consists of the Tasteful Touches stamp set, the Tasteful Labels dies set (available as the Tasteful Touches bundle, at a 10% discount), the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper, the Tasteful Texture 3D embossing folder and the In Good Taste Elements.

As you would guess from the names, it is a very tasteful suite. Actually, it is delicate enough to allow feminine projects but versatile enough to suite the most rugged gent. The DSP is full of texture, with very earthy tones. The stamp set contains some lovely greetings in a beautiful script, two of which are specifically designed to fit into two of the ten gorgeous label dies, a luscious flower (easily fussy cut), a delicate sprig, a feather, and a number of texture stamps. The elements are made of wood and include leaves, sprigs and small textural shapes.

When playing with the elements that went into this card, I was struggling to use DSP AND the gorgeous embossing folder. Then I realised that I could accomplish this by using the “DSP Quadrangle Cut”. Not sure about this name. Anyway, I quite liked the layout, but couldn’t decide which label and greeting to use so I consulted the brains trust (Hi Vicki and Antoinette!). They had differing opinions, so I used both. Which do you like the best?

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – July – Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper

PaperCraftingBlogHopBadge

Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring the theme Designer Series Paper.  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 have yet to purchase a great deal of DSP from this year’s offering, so the choice was easy. Either Artistry Blooms or World of Good (used that for last month’s hop). I recently saw a One Sheet Wonder Based on a 6″ square piece of DSP producing 4 cards. I found it on an Australian Demonstrator’s facebook page. I haven’t been able to find out whose idea it was originally, but I think it’s a great one, and it suited my paper because it is very bright and I think the large white space balances out the bright colour. Just after I made these cards, our fellow hopper, Sandra Roberts shared some beautiful Christmas cards she had made using this technique and did a video on Youtube here. I think this layout needs a name! Any ideas?

The secret to making these cards is the template shown below. You simply take your 6″ X 6″ piece of DSP, mark 1.5″ in from each corner. Cut from top left mark to bottom right mark. Rotate and repeat. It is optional to add another layer between the DSP and the card base. Also, you either have the wider side at the top as I have or rotate 180 deg as Sandra has.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – June – 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 Maureen Rauchfuss’s blog.  Wasn’t her project amazing? Either way, you’re in the right place!

When deciding what I would create for this blog hop, I wanted to use some new products from the 2020 Annual Catalogue. However, as yet I haven’t purchased a great deal of new goodies, apart from the new In-Colors and some of the World of Good Suite products. I love the colours in this suite and the Bronze Foil gives it a real POP! So, it was a no-brainer, I had to use products from this suite, so it would have to be a masculine card. Then, I stumbled across a fancy card fold I hadn’t heard of before, a Rectangle Rocker, so I thought I’d give it a go. And since I used the Memories and More Card pack, the only thing I needed to stamp was the greeting. Even the little triangles at the top and bottom of the frame are stickers from the M&M Card pack.

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!

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.
