Ink. Stamp. Share Blog Hop Spring/Summer Catalogue

Hello, Welcome to the first Ink. Stamp. Share Blog hop of the year.
You may of joined me from Tricia Butts beautiful project, or you may of started on my blog, hope you enjoy.

This month our theme is Spring/Summer Catalogue.  The new catalogue went live on 3rd January and is packed full of beautiful, fun and cute items.  If you would like a copy please contact me and I will post one right out to you.

I'm using Geared Up Garage.

This is a great suite and the stamp set has a matching die set with 10% off when brought as a bundle.  There are also 6 x 6 paper packs, metal elements and ribbon.

Classic Garage Metal Elements, so cute!

Here's a picture of my card with some examples of the paper designs in the 6 x 6 packs.  I think this card may look even better with the map paper. Wish I'd thought of it earlier!!!

I used the blends to colour my car in, I love the blends so easy and fun to use.  It's hard to see in the photo but my white top layer has been die cut with the car an the actual car is on the bottom layer.  I believe this is called Set Back Stamping.

The Metal Elements stick really well with the Fine Tip Glue.

The blends do bleed through the back if you're colouring on the card base, this is why I added a panel using the Rectangle Stiched Framelits to cover this up.

I've made a short video on how I made this card.

Don't forget to hop along with all the talented ladies in this Blog Hop, you will not regret it, Rebecca-Jo Unwin is next, check out her great project.

Stamping Around the World Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Stamping Around the World Blog Hop.
My names Linda and I live in the UK on a small island in Essex.
We are all a group of Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who have joined together to offer our customers a PDF file of card and project samples with a qualifying order.  On top of this we are doing a monthly blog hop using the same products to give you different ideas.

Hope you enjoy and don't forget to hop along.

I am using the Butterfly Gala Suite.

Using the narrow cards & envelopes I've made some cute Thank You cards also decorating the envelopes.  

Then I decided a lovely box for the cards would make a perfect small gift for a family member or friend. 

Pretty ribbon from Sale-a-Bration
I've made a couple of quick videos on how I made the cards and the gift box.

Kre8tors Blog Hop Occasions/Sale-A-Bration

Hello, and welcome to the first Kre8tors Blog Hop of 2019 
 You may of joined me from Tricia Butts post and awesome project, or you could be starting at my post, whichever way I'm very pleased to see you.

We are starting off the new year with a real challenge, a Tic-Tac-Toe or Noughts and crosses for us Brits with an 
Occasions/Sale-A-Bration theme.

Why not have a go at home with this challenge?  Choose a row up across or diagonal and make a project using whatever is in the box.

I have gone for Sequins, 3D Item and Heat emboss.

I've made a cute box with some cards inside.

This is a very simple, straight forward box to make.  I've covered my 3D item, with my box, my cake is stamped and then embossed with Stampin' Up Silver embossing powder and my sequins are attached to the back of my pretty ribbon.  All bases covered phew...

The cards are using the narrow cards and envelopes, this is the perfect size for them with a cheeky pen enclosed as well.  This would make a lovely gift for a family member or friend.

Cased box from CraftClare, changed it up a bit.

Here' a close up of my cake and ribbon, sequin combo.  This ribbon is beautiful and free! yes free with Sale-A-Bration at the moment.  

Do you see that cute owl peeking round the box, he's an oil burner Christmas Present, also perfect for card props!

I love how well the cards came together, this bundle is a great buy and has some really lovely sentiments.

 I love these ribbons
from this years Sale-A-Bration.

I have now been a member of the Kre8tors Blog Hop for a year and I've taken part every month I'm proud to display my badge.

I've made a short video on how to make the box.

and another video on the cards
