{Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Forever Greenery Suite}



Hello and welcome! Thank you for popping in on my blog, today is blog hop day and we are focusing on the Forever Greenery Suite.

It has so many elements that work so well on their own or with other craft materials.
I love how it can be used for many styles and types of cards and craft projects.


I decided to stay away from greens for a bit of a change and also make a home decor item.

Here is a decorated battery operated candle.  I stamped onto vellum and then used stamped and die cut leaves to stick around it, finishing it off with a ribbon and gold thread, I did cheat a little and added some flowers punched out with the Small Bloom Punch.

The colours used were
Blackberry Bliss
Rich Razzleberry
Rococo Rose
Pumpkin Pie


I decided to make a matching card.


Had to use some gems that are from the up coming mini catalogue, they were too yummy not to use!
Can you spot the stencilling? The Forever Gold Lazer Cut Speciality paper provides some lovely textures that can be sponged though to create custom backgrounds.


Here is a video of how I put it all together


Thank you so much for having a look, please let me know if you would like a copy of the upcoming Mini catalogue and have a wonderful rest of the day.

Please have a look at the blogs of the other fabulous demonstrators and be inspired by their creations with the Forever Greenery Suite.

{Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - In Colours 2020 - 2022}

Welcome to my blog, today it's blog hop day!


Today we are focusing on the new In Colours.

They are Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade, Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight.


They are available in the ink pads, card stock, some embellishments and marker pens.

A lovely addition to the Stampin' Up! colour palette.

The colours are deep enough that when stamped 2nd, 3rd and even 4th generation the results are deeply satisfying.

Recently I have enjoyed stamping flower wreaths or garlands to create home decor pieces.


Here are some close ups, after laying down some testured stamps from Textured Essentials, I used stamps from All things Fabulous to "colour in" the images from Tasteful Touches and Jar of Flowers




As I was stamping the big wreath, I "stamped off" onto a piece of card atthe side of me and created a collage of images.  I then stamped flowers from All things Fabulous in Misty Moonlight to create this bright card.

{Paper Flower canvas - Paper Rose made from heart punchies}

It's been a few months since I've made an altered canvas.

I had the idea rumbling around in my head for a few days.  I'm sure like me you may have felt saddened by recent events around the world, and for me it has been a devastating reminder of the fragility of life, the brokenness of this world and how we need to be responsible for our thoughts and actions.

I wanted to create a piece that reflected my feelings and was also a therapeutic act to re connect me to my Creator.

Here is the result.

{Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - New Product Preview 2020}

Hello there and welcome to the



I trust today finds you well and safe.

It has been my pleasure to get my hands on some of the new products that will be available form the 3rd June.  As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator I get to buy from a selection of products a month before they are widely available. 

One of the exciting things with a new catalogue is seeing 5 new colours that will be added to our palette for the next 2 years.

Today I have used 3 of them along with a beautiful stamp set called Tasteful Touches and the accompanying dies.

 

I decided to make an explosion box and create my own paper to decorate it, the video tutorial is below.


Can you see the nest of gold the butterfly is sitting in?  That was made from some new gold thread coming soon.



Stampin' Up! have also provided some matching ribbon which is lovely and soft and great for making bows.


With the left over pieces I was able to make this card, the stamped panel was embossed with a new embossing folder called Tasteful Textile, it's really subtle and gives the card a canvas effect texture.




Here is the video of how I made the box and card.
