You're a Peach

I have another ShoeBox Design to share with you today. This one is by Tamara Blanch. This card is all Designer Series Paper, apart from the sentiment. Very handy, if you don't own the Sweet as a Peach stamp set! The You're a Peach Designer Series Paper has lots of pretty patterns, in shades of Calypso Coral, Balmy Blue and Pear Pizzazz. 

I cut strips of the DSP at random angles and stuck them down, alternating sides of the paper. It's a great effect, and a good way to use up paper scraps. I also cut out the peaches from the DSP. 

The Scalloped Contours Dies give a bit more interest to the sentiment (it's from the Shaded Summer stamp set). 

I had lots of fun making this one. Thanks for stopping by!

September Blog Hop

Welcome to another Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop! This month we have a Sketch Challenge. You can make the complete circuit and see all the lovely creations by following the links at the end of each post.

This is such a versatile sketch that could work with just about any stamp set....that gave me a dilemma about which one to choose! In the end, cute won out (as it so often does!):

The cute today comes in the form of squirrels. This was my first play with the Nuts About Squirrels stamp set....and it won't be my last! They are just so sweet. You can colour them, as I've done here, or use the 2-step solid stamp to add colour.

I used some Christmas DSP in the background. Yes, that leaf pattern is from the new Mini Catalogue - it's called Painted Christmas.  I think it works well for non-Christmassy designs too!

To tie in with the forest theme, I used the Timber embossing folder on the Crumb Cake piece.  

The sentiment is also from the Nuts About Squirrels stamp set. I used the Banners Pick A Punch to flag the ends. 

Well, that’s all from me. Click on the button below to move to the next stop:

Sweet Christmas Pudding

Today I have a Christmas card to show you! This one comes courtesy of Paula Duke's Stamp Camp ShoeBox card. I love how fun and modern this card is. I would never have thought of using this black and white gingham for Christmas, but paired with Cherry Cobbler, it really works! 

The cute pudding from the Sweets & Treats stamp set makes the perfect Christmas centrepice for this card. I love the touches of gold too, to add a bit of glam. 

You can see all the ingredients I used make this card listed below.

Evergreen Plants

I thought it was about time that I showed you one of MY ShoeBox Designs from our Virtual Stamp Camp. I wanted to come up with a design that didn't require a lot of stamping, so that it didn't matter if everyone didn't own the required stamp set. So I chose the Bloom Where You're Planted Designer Series Paper. I paired it with some Paper Lattice and the Macrame Embossing Folder. I love using Evening Evergreen as a background colour. The deep tone really makes the other elements 'pop'. 

Hopefully everyone enjoyed making this card!

Encircled in Beauty

This gorgeous ShoeBox card was provided by Elizabeth Yager. It's a simple design that really lets those intricate dies and beautiful Designer Series Paper shine. I didn't have the Encircled in Friendship stamp set that Elizabeth used, so I substituted the Shaded Summer stamp set. I think it works quite well!
