Hostess Sets

Believe You Can

I’m back today to share another this time using the ‘Believe You Can’ Hostess set.

First up I stamped the image onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I have then coloured using Stampin’ Blends in the Brights colour family of colours. I then stamped the ‘Thank You’ sentiment from the set using Poppy Parade ink. This has then been die cut using the Stitched Nested Label Dies. I have also cut a larger Stitched Nested Label die using Poppy Parade card stock. I embossed a piece of Whisper White card using the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder which is mounted to a piece of Poppy Parade cardstock. I have then mounted the Poppy Parade Stitched Nested Label die cut piece to the front of the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and have then added a piece of Granny Apple Green ribbon across the front and adhered using Mini Glue Dots. Next I mounted this piece to a Whisper White card base. The main image piece was added next mounting with Stampin’ Dimensionals over the ribbon. My last step was to add a bow using the Granny Apple Green Ribbon which is adhered using a Mini Glue Dot.

I’ve had a busy few days with not much time for creating although I’m not sure my ‘mojo’ is fully back as yet from that break I had anyway. Hopefully my mojo will fully return and I”ll get back to more regular posting soon.

I have managed to sit down this morning and create one card which is for 2 challenges this week.

First up is the Colour Challenge #25 from Rubber Redneck.

Color Round Up # 25

Next is the Sketch Challenge #59 over at Just Add Ink.

I always seem to struggle when using Pacific Point. It’s not that I don’t like the colour, it’s just that I find it very bright. With that said I’m happy with my end result with just little bits of Pacific Point showing through.

I have used the Pacific Point as my base card and layers. To this I’ve added some Peach Parfait Patterns DSP along with some Melon Mambo Patterns DSP and tied some Old Olive Taffeta ribbon around.

The main images are from the Level 2 Hostess set – Apple Blossom. The sentiment is from the stamp set – Taking Care of Business. I’ve also added a small rhinestone to the flower for a bit of sparkly but it doesn’t show up real well in this photo.

This card will be heading to one of the lovely ladies who has already placed an order to help me reach my sales goal for the end of the month. She’s also in the draw to WIN a FREE BIG SHOT. There is still time to place your order and be in the running and you don’t have to be a regular customer (nor do you need to become a regular customer of mine) to be eligible, you just need to live in Australia. To find out more, check out this post.

I hope to be back later with some more creations so till then……

Over on Cards & Things Challenges this week we have been given a gorgeous colour combination to play with for Colour Challenge #65.

I haven’t played a lot with Concord Crush as yet, but I do love Pear Pizzazz and Bashful Blue is always nice.

Now I wanted to try and use a stamp set I either hadn’t used yet or not very often and decided upon one of the Level 2 Hostess sets – Apple Blossom. Previously I’d only used one stamp from this set on the desktop calendar I made for my last Secret Sister in my Stampin’ Up in Oz group.  I’ve also used another stamp set that I hadn’t used as yet and that is Hodgepodge Happiness, which of course I’ve teamed with some Styled Silver Hodgepodge which I haven’t used any of in quite a while.

Stamp sets: Apple Blossom (Hostess), Hodgepodge Happiness (Summer Mini)
Card: Concord Crush, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, Subtles Pattern Stack – Bashful Blue
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Bashful Blue, Concord Crush
Accessories: Styled Silver Hodgepodge, Basic Jewels – Rhinestones, Small Oval Punch, Concord Crush 1/2” Stitched-Poly Ribbon

Just a reminder that you only have till 8pm Sunday 13th February (Sydney time) to be eligible to enter to win some Blog Candy. You can read all about it here.

Till next time…..
