Wishing You Well Stamp-a-Stack


I used the Wishing You Well stamp set for one of my last Stamp-a-Stack classes of the year. The colours I chose are Mossy Meadow, Fresh Fig and Blackberry Bliss - a very elegant combination. I also used a few different embossing folders and lots of Champagne Shimmer Paint.

Since this is such a versatile set, we made these cards for all occasions....even Christmas!

Come and Hop with Us!


Welcome once again to the Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop! On this hop you will see projects made with either the ‘Amazing Life’ or ‘Incredible Like You’ stamp set that we received at a recent Demonstrator Training Event. These sets are featured in the upcoming Occasions Catalogue (live on January 3!). You can make the complete circuit and see all the lovely creations by following the links at the end of each post.

There's a couple of sneak peaks on this card, and a returning product too. The star of the show is that beautiful flower from the Incredible Like You set. It's a 2-step stamp set, so there's lots of depth and dimension. And it's photopolymer, so it's easy to line up (and a bargain price too!). There's also a kit that goes with it, for those times when inspiration isn't striking. I love the sentiment in this set too. I made this card for a very dear friend and those words are exactly what I wish for her.

The background paper is a Sale-a-Bration sneak peak. It's called Botanical Butterfly and I know I'm going to use it to death over the next few months. One side of all the prints is black and white...be still my beating heart!! You'll be able to earn this paper for FREE (with a $90 order) from January 3.

My colour scheme is Lemon Lime Twist and Highland Heather, with a splash of silver. I embossed the sentiment in silver, used Silver & White twine and also some of the Frosted Epoxy droplets (yes, these are hanging around! Hooray!).

Well, that’s all from me. Thanks for stopping by! Click on the button below to move to the next stop:

CCMC540 Christmas Purples


It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at www.createwithconnieandmary.com.
This week is a sketch challenge, and this is the sketch we had to work with:

 
I love playing with non-traditional colours for Christmas. Here I've used Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape, two beautiful shades of purple. I've also used a Retiring bundle, called Beautiful Baubles. The Detailed Baubles thinlits are just stunning. I cut them out of just Whisper White cardstock and then used a sponge brayer to apply Ombre shading.
 
I've also used some of my other favourite products on this card - the Swirls and Curls embossing folder (sponged with Frost White Shimmer Paint to really make it pop), the Subtle embossing folder, Stitched Shapes framelits and Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon (attached with a glue dot). 
 
The sentiment is from the Hung With Care Hostess stamp set.

I hope you like my card. Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page!

Frosted Floral Suite


This card turned out a little busy for my liking. However, I thought I'd put it out there anyway, since we are all different and like different things! I think it would look a lot better if I'd kept the background plainer, but that's just me. What do you think?

I've used products from the Frosted Floral Suite. The whole card has a subtle shimmer, thanks to the Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper. The First Frost stamp set is just stunning - grab the bundle by January 2. After this, it will no longer be available at the bundle price.

Thanks for visiting! Have a great week.

Accented Blooms in Purple


Accented Blooms is one of my go-to sets for quick cards. It's a lovely image to colour, but as I've shown here, it also works well left uncoloured. Actually I've very lightly shaded with a Blender Pen here, just to add a hint of colour.
My colour scheme here is Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape...a match made in heaven!

Coming Soon - NEW Cling Stamps


At our recent Demonstrator Training event, Stampin' Up! made a very exciting announcement. Going forward in all new catalogues, wood mount stamps will no longer be offered. Instead, all red rubber stamps will be Cling Stamps. If you've ever been frustrated with stamps not sticking to your blocks, then you're going to love these new stamps. They come with a tacky sticker, and trust me, there's no way these will ever fall off your blocks. I've had a play with them, and I love them already.

You'll be able to try them for yourself in January - all of the red rubber stamps in the Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-Bration brochure will be Cling stamps (some sets will still be offered in photopolymer).

CCMC539 Country Charm

 
It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at www.createwithconnieandmary.com. This week is a colour challenge, and these are the colours we had to work with:

No surprises that I've gone with a  Christmas card with these colours. I've used the Ready for Christmas stamp set and the Christmas Staircase thinlets, from the Annual Catalogue. I've also used the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper (both the check and woodgrain patterns), from the Holiday Catalogue. I also used the Cable Knit embossing folder on one of the banners. The string and bow are hand-drawn with a Gray Granite marker.
 
This is a pretty simple card, but I like the country charm.
 
I hope you like my card! Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page

Dandelion Wishes in Fresh Fig


Dandelion Wishes was a must-have set for me from the moment I first saw it in the Annual Catalogue. I've used it to make get well cards, but also birthdays and thank yous. I made this card in several different colours, but this Fresh Fig one was my favourite. I added some sparkle to my dandelions with Fine tip glue and Dazzling Diamonds glitter.

I hope you like my card. Thanks for visiting!
