October Blog Hop

It’s time for Blog Hop again!  This time the design of our card is based on a given sketch.

This sketch works easily with any stamped images.  I’ve been playing with the Back on Your Feet stamp set quite a bit recently so I’ve made this card using the sloth from the stamp set and pairing it with ferns from the Daisy Lane stamp set to match the overall leafy design of the card.  The background was embossed with the Layered Leaves 3D embossing folder and the strip of pretty paper is from Come To Gather Designer Series Paper.

I hope you like my card.  We have so many creative crafters in this group, I hope you’d be able to get more inspirations from this talented team.  Hop on to the next blog to see what Kylie Page has come up with in the next blog!

September Blog Hop

It’s time for Blog Hop again and I was delighted to know that the challenge this month is to use anything from the Holiday Catalogue.  The catalogue just has launched this month and it has now given me another reason to play with the new lovely products 🙂

I have chosen to use the new Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder for a gorgeous gleaming background.

The sentiment is from the Greatest Part of Christmas stamp set, a great hostess set with so many Christmas and New Year sentiments to choose from.

I then decorated the card with Christmas trees and pine cones from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set.  I love how the trees come with a coordinating punch which makes cutting them out so easy!

I hope you like my card.  We have so many creative crafters in this group, I hope you’d be able to get more inspirations from this talented team.  Hop on to the next blog to see what Melissa Gifford has come up with in the next blog!

August Blog Hop

   

This month’s blog hop requires us to use 5 given colours and this is the card that I came up with.

The card was made using mainly the Layering Alphabet Dies and the Lined Alphabet stamp set in Grapefruit Grove and Mint Macaron cardstock in alternate layers.  I love using these dies and stamp set to make personalised cards.

The punched daisy was stamped in Basic Gray then punched out using the Medium Daisy Punch.  I have also stamped a lighter shade of daisy in Sahara Sand at the top corner of the card.  My sentiment in Balmy Blue is from the Rooted in Nature stamp set.

I hope you like my card.  Check out what Sharon Wilson has come up with in the next blog!

Happy Chinese New Year 2019

Today is the first day of Chinese New Year celebrating the Year of the Pig. The celebration is in full swing among my family members. Here are some cards I’ve made for my friends and family celebrating the occasion.

This Little Piggy and the Barn Door stamp sets make a perfect pair for this occasion!

     

Beautiful Waterfront

Last week I made this card for a lovely friend.  I used a couple of stamps from the Waterfront set to build the scene.  Then I stamped the girl from Beautiful You twice.  The first time was on the same cardstock where the waterfront scene was stamped.  The second time was stamped on a DSP.  I then cut out the dress and the hat from the DSP and stuck them onto the same image on the cardstock.  That’s an easy way to have your beautiful girl wear a dress of any print!

Dashing Deer

The Stamper Anonymous group, which I’m part of, is kick starting a Team Blog Hop, today being the first!  Once a month, the talented Nikki Stalker will send the team a sketch or a colour challenge and we design something based on this guideline.

This week is a sketch challenge, and this is the sketch we had to work with:

Since Christmas is just around the corner, I’ve decided to make a Christmas card.  The deer is cut out from the Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies while the sentiment is from the Labels of Love stamp set from the Annual Catalogue.  I’ve also punched some sprigs using the Sprig Punch as I think they make a good match with the Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) used in the background.

My colour scheme is Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and white for a traditional Christmas colour.

I hope you like my card.  Check out what Melissa Gifford has come up with in the next blog!

Wonderful Moments for an Expecting Mother

I have a colleague who is going away for maternity leave and I made her this card.  The elegant background was made with the Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies and the image and sentiment are from the Wonderful Moments stamp set. I’ve coloured in the image using the Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers which makes it so easy to do blending,

This stamp set has many more images suitable for all types of wonderful moments like weddings and birthdays and it comes with sentiments suitable for such occasions!
