Blog Hop #5

Welcome to our April Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop.

You can start the hop from any team members blog and then all you need to do is follow the ‘Next Blog’ link to continue along the hop. Alternatively, there is a full list of participants below. We would love for you to leave us a comment and let us know what you think of our creations and hopefully we have inspired you to get creating too.

This month we are working with the following Sketch.

For this sketch I went with a simple card using the lovely Animal Expedition Suite on pages 26 & 27 of the Annual Catalogue.

One of the great things I love about this set is that not only does it have coordinating dies for the stamp set but the dies also fit the designer series paper images. The image on my card is actually from the designer series paper which makes for a super quick card.

I hope I have inspired you with my creations. You will find a supply list below along with a full list of the hop participants, but for now you can head over to the next blog or back to the previous one by clicking the buttons.

Onstage Team Swaps

Last weekend I attended our Stampin’ Up!® Local OnStage event in Melbourne and the team I am part of decided to do a team swap.

I decided to create a card using my current favourite set, Tropical Chic, and the co-ordinating products.

Here is the first sample I made.

I liked it but thought it needed a little more.

This is my second sample and what ended up being my team swap card.

I think the extra strip of paper worked well.

I really like these colours together which are taken from the Tropical Escape DSP.

I also love the extra touch the Metallic Sequin Assortment gives. These have a pink tinge to them which fit perfectly with my colour combination.

Do you have a preference?

If you’d like to recreate these cards you can purchase all or any of the items by clicking the links below which will take you directly to my Online Shop, or alternatively email me or call 0418 218 467 and I’ll place the order for you.

Tropical Thank You…

So I’m back today to share another card created using the Tropical Chic stamp set and co-ordinating products. This time I’m using the sketch from Create with Connie & Mary.

Here’s what I created.

And this is the Sketch they provided.

I’ve continued the theme to the inside using some stamped die cuts, a little of the designer series paper from the front and a bit more of the gorgeous Granny Apple Green ribbon.
