Summer Mini Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampers Anonymous SU blog tour! You may have just come from Lorna Casha’s blog, but if you are starting here, don’t worry….you can make the complete circuit just by following the links at the end of each post. There are 14 stops along the way and we hope you will visit each one to see the gorgeous creations we have to show you!

For our first tour we decided to showcase the beautiful new products in the Summer Mini, available to you from December 1st. At the end of each post there will be a link to take you to the next stop on the tour. Feel free to “share the love” and leave a comment! So sit back, relax and enjoy!

The items I’ve made to share with you all today are all made using the gorgeous new RAZZLE DAZZLE stamp set.

For something a little different (for me anyway) I decided to create some coasters using tiles I’d purchased last year and had still yet to use. I thought this stamp set would work well and here is the end result.

Of course I then needed something to present them in…..

You can’t really see from the picture but there is a clear cover that slides on over the base container. The ribbon and tag finish it off.

Next up is a Post-It Note holder. I’ve actually added magnetic strips to the back so it can be placed on a fridge or even a filing cabinet so you should never be without pen and paper to write out that shopping list of make a note of something important.

To complete my items I’ve made a coordinating card.

Friends 24-7

This stamp set was one of the first I had to have when the new IB&C came out in April. I think it had more to do with the fact that I loved the coordinating wheel but I did like the stamp set too. Unfortunately it hasn’t been used all that often. Another wonderful thing about this set is it’s one of Shelli’s Signature Collection sets which are new this year.

So seeing how I hadn’t used it much I decided it need to be inked up again. I love the sample cards in the IB&C for it so decided to recreate something along those lines but make it my own too.

I ended up making 4 cards very similar looking, 2 portrait orientation and 2 in landscape orientation, and changing the sentiments.

Set 1

The colours I’ve used are Kraft, Close to Cocoa, Baja Breeze and Whisper White.  I really like to softness to these cards.

My sunglasses card…

I don’t mean that this card actually looks like sunglasses but you may wish to put some on before checking out the card……lol.

This is so not my colours that I would grab myself but following along from the last card in yesterday’s post I chose another Splitcoast Sketch Challenge and Colour Challenge.

The Sketch Challenge is #SC218 and I’ve teamed it with Colour Challenge #CC218. The colours for CC218 are Summer Sun, Only Orange and Kiwi Kiss. Now I looovvee Kiwi Kiss but Summer Sun and Only Orange are totally not colours I normally go for but a challenge is supposed to be just that.

I don’t totally dislike the card but as you will see it’s very different for me.

So are you ready. Do you have those sunglasses on??

Okay, here it is.
