It's time for a Blog Hop!
Thank you for visiting me today, and taking part in our new Blog Hop, featuring amazing Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from across the globe! That's right – we have some of the most creative, fabulous demonstrators from across the United States, Canada, and Australia, gathered together as part of "The Creation Station" to share our projects with you, and I'm beyond thrilled to be part of the team!
If you're following the "Next" buttons, you've come to my blog from the amazing Jennifer Downey's blog – isn't she just so creative?! Her style is amazing!
Today I have 2 projects to share with you, both featuring the Stippled Blossoms stamp set. I'm so happy that this set is being carried forward into the new catalogue – it's so beautiful and versatile – the combinations you can do with this set are endless!
Here's my first creation – a cute little gift bag, perfect for tucking in a gift card, or a special treat for a special someone.
How cute is this?! This is the perfect 'little something' when just a card isn't enough!
Here's a side view, so you can see that the sides are 'gussetted', to allow room for that treat (yes, I mean chocolate! 🙂 )
Cardstock: Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper: Watercolour Wonder
Inks: Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Crisp Cantaloupe, Tangerine Tango
Stamp Sets: Chalk Talk, Stippled Blossoms
Tools: Chalk Talk Framelits, Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, Simply Scored, Stampin' Dimensionals, Sticky Strip
Accessories: Gold Baker's Twine, Tea Lace Paper Doilies
My next project I made a Birthday card, but wanted to do something a bit different. I also wanted to say good-bye to our retiring In Colours of the last two years – I'm sure going to miss them! Let me know what you think!
The style reminds me of a Japanese Soji screen – do you think so, too?
The Stippled Blossoms stamp set is so gorgeous, I think it's perfect for creating your own designer paper – so I did! I really like the effect you can create with this set – it's called "two-step" stamping; first you stamp your lighter colour as the solid flower shape, then stamp your darker colour detail stamp on top. It creates terrific depth with almost no effort – Stampin' Up! is wonderful at making us look like great artists!
Cardstock: Primrose Petals (retiring), Gumball Green (retiring), Whisper White, Vellum
Stamp Sets: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Stippled Blossoms, Papillion Poutpourri
Tools: Label Bracket Punch, Curly Label Punch, Simply Scored, Stampin' Dimensionals, Anywhere Glue Sticks
