Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #26

It’s Blog Hop time again and this time we are showcasing creations made using products from the new January – June 2021 Mini Catalogue and/or January – February 2021 Sale-A-Bration brochure.

 

If you are starting the hop here, you can make your way around by either clicking the ‘Next Blog’ button or by clicking the direct links to the participants blogs below.

 

 

My card today features the Flowering Cactus Product Medley. I just love the colours in this collection plus cacti or cactuses (whichever you prefer to say) are my type of plant. I’m a terrible gardener and if anything needs regular watering then it’s guaranteed to die as I often forget but cactus are a little heartier and don’t need as much water. I’m not like this with other living things (namely my children and our animals) however, which of course is a good thing.

I’ve made a pretty simple card using some of the Designer Series Papers, 1 stamp (the sentiment), a felt flower, a couple of inkpads and some cardstock. The main image is actually from a sheet of the Designer Series Paper. All the images on this sheet can be die cut using the coordinating dies. Everything apart from the inkpads and the cardstock comes in the kit so it’s a great buy. The kit contains the stamp set and coordinating dies, 48 sheets of 6″ x 6″ designer series papers, 8 felt sheets and a linen thread combo pack. You can check it all out in the product list below or on page 8 – 9 of the January – June 2021 Mini Catalogue.

Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #25

It’s Blog Hop time again and our last one for the year is…..

 

If you are starting the hop here, welcome and I hope you like what I have created.

I decided not to share Christmas creations today but 2 cards I have made using the gorgeous ‘Forever Greenery’ DSP.

 The first card also uses the lovely die from Painted Labels along with the Stitched Shapes dies and the sentiment is from the Fancy Phrases stamp set. I’ve embossed the lower part of the card with the Greenery Embossing Folder and also added a couple gold leaves from the coordinating Forever Gold Speciality DSP.

 

 

On the second card I’ve only added an embossed sentiment and let the DSP do all the work.

 

 

One last photo of the 2 cards together.

Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #24

It’s Blog Hop time again and this time we have a sketch.

 

If you are starting the hop here, welcome and I hope you like what I have created.

 

 

For my card I started out with a base card of Whisper White Thick which I have then added a layer of Old Olive that has been embossed using the Pinewood Planks 3D folder. Next I die cut a circle in Whisper White using the Stitched Shapes Dies. I’ve added a strip of Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo designer series papers from the Brights 6 x 6 DSP packs. I then die cut the ‘birthday’ in Old Olive using the Well Written dies and layered it onto a Whisper White piece which I created from tracing the die and then fussy cutting. Next I stamped and heat embossed in white the ‘WISHES’ sentiment onto Melon Mambo cardstock which is from the Well Said stamp set. Lastly I have stamped the floral image from the Four Season Floral stamp set in the Beginners Brochure onto Whisper White twice using Memento Tuxedo Black and then coloured using Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. Once coloured I fussy cut them and mounted to the card.
