Ink and Share Blog Hop

Image may contain: text

Welcome to the first Ink and Share monthly blog hop.  We are a group of Independent Stampin' Up Demonstrators from around the world.  We aim to inspire you with some of our work.  
My names Linda and I live in the UK on a small island in Essex.

This month we are working from the Sale-a-bration Catalogue.

My main item was the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set, but I also used the Celebrate You Thinlits and the Shimmer Ribbon both from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue.

I love the beautiful flower stamp in this set, I immediately wanted to make my own DSP with it and thought a box was the way to go.

I made a very simple box using Thick whisper white for the lid and Dapper Denim for the base, I also used Dapper Denim ink to stamp my flowers.

I wanted the Thank You cards to be the same but decided to use different blue's on each card.  I was brave and cut my Thank You sentiment but you can mask the 'you' off before inking if you don't like cutting your stamps.

Don't forget to pretty up your envelopes, I like to match my cards to my envelopes when possible.

Hope you liked my project, now please hop along to see Phoebe Borromeo-Carr's amazing work.   Thanks for dropping by.

2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop February

No automatic alt text available.

Welcome to the February 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop, we are a group of Independent Stampin Up Demonstrators.  We are hoping to inspire you to create.  There are some super talented people on this blog hop, be sure to visit them all.

This month we are making projects using items from Sale-a-Bration, there are lots to chose from, I love the cute Party Panda's so easy choice for me.

What better use for a Party Panda than a party invite!  Once the invite was finished I had to keep crafting and made a pretty party bag, name setting and simple straw.  I used Berry Burst as my main colour with a touch of Blushing Bride and Whisper White.

The blossom and branch were cut using the Seasonal Layer dies, I stamped my pandas in Basic Black then covered them in clear embossing powder to give them a lovely shine.  Yes I had to fussy cut some of my pandas but worth the effort.

How cute is this panda swinging in the blossom

Thanks for joining me on our blog hop, don't forget to check out the lovely crafters below

Feb 2018 Stamp N Hop Blog Hop

Image may contain: text

Welcome to the first Stamp N Hop Blog hop, my names Linda and I live in the UK on a small island in Essex.  We are a group of Independent Stampin Up Demonstrators from around the world. This month our theme is projects from the Spring/Summer Occasions Catalogue.  There is some awesome work on this hop, don't forget to hop along.

I love the Magical Day bundle which I combined with the Sunshine and Rainbows cloud die.

I was inspired by a Jennifer McGuire Youtube video.  Off the edge die cuts.  

Once I had built my castle! I thought clouds were required, the dragon sat in them nicely.  I pulled the card together by using Pool Party in the dragon, knight, sentiment and the bunting. I also used the Pumpkin Pie in the sentiment, bunting and knight.  I stamped my sentiment by dabbing on the different coloured inks then huffing onto the stamp, (to re-activate the ink).  The actual card base is small, but large enough to write your message in, finished card fits into a normal sized envelope.
