Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Loaded Envelope

Welcome to October's Stampin Sunday Blog Hop


I had great fun creating this month's project.
It's a stuffed envelope, well, I made it slightly bigger than your average envelope so I could pack lots of goodies in.  When I did a search on the internet for what one was, there was such an amazing variety of creative ideas.  The idea I latched onto was to decorate or gather useful items to put in a fun paper pocket.

I started off with 2 pieces of 6" wide DSP, they were then folded and cut to create a layered pocket.


I gathered some colour co-ordinated teabags and sweets and bagged them up.


These are a decorated notebook, a book mark and some sticky notes.


I then couldn't resist making some fun paperclip toppers, by the way the paper clips are quite large, about 3" long.


Here is the pocket envelope stuffed with all the goodies, ready to give as a fun gift.


To see how I put the pocket together have a look at this short video


Isn't it adorable? I look forward to making more of these.

{Getting Inky and stamping art} collage style stamping

I had so much fun getting inky with some bright inks and various stamps. A whole sheet of card was used initially.

It's a process that requires a little bit of courage to keep applying ink and stamped images, then go in with some heat embossing and white ink to create focus and contrast.


After the colourful layer went down, I heat embossed the butterflies with black embossing powder.

To make the butterflies standout more, a blob of White reinker was put onto a block and I used the Water Painters to lighten them.


The sheet was then cut into 4 and additional stamping and swishing the bak ink pad over the edges was added.

This is the video tutorial of the process

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Saleabration Farewell September 2021


Hi there and welcome to this month's hop.  We decided to give you a  little reminder of what is available for FREE during these last days of Saleabration.

With a £45 purchase, this adorable set of papers 158420
 

and with a £90 purchase this beautiful stamp set (sorry to US customers, I don't think it's available anymore)


I decided to make some tags and show them off with the gorgeous ombre bags from the annual catalogue.


They were so much fun to make.

I created a bit of a production line of all my pieces, including fussy cut animals and punched out elements.


By choosing colours featured in the designer series paper, this saved me time and also created a cohesive look to the colour scheme.


Can you spot the stars cut from this super sparkly card?  That is free too!



I love how the business of the tags looks paired with the simplicity of the bags.


Here is the video showing how I made them...

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Suite on You - Sweet Symmetry


Hi there and welcome to the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop, this month we are focusing on the Suites of products that Stampin' Up! create to make it easier to choose what we love.

I have chosen to focus on 
Sweet Symmetry 


it contains some very pretty papers, with patterns in the style of folk art, also an extremely versatile stamp set and punch.


I decided to create 3 cards.


The first one is made with just ink, card and paper, by making use of the symmetrical patterns in the stamp set, it was so easy to create this pattern using Calypso Coral, Polished Pink, Bumblebee and Night of Navy.


In the second card I wanted to use a piece of the beautiful paper, but also wanted to show off some of the stamps by using Night of Navy on the delicately patterned yellow paper.  By mounting it onto the matching card stock it really shows it off.


For the final card I wanted to show off the colourful paper and the leaf punch.

To watch my process here is a video
