ESAD Blog Hop

Thanks for joining me and 25 fellow demonstrators for ESAD’s 2017/2018 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek Blog Hop.  You may have hopped over to me after seeing Kim’s fabulous project.  When you’re finished on my page make sure you click on the next button and hop over to Sandra’s project.  You won’t want to miss out on any of these amazing creations.

Today we are giving you a Sneak Peek of some of the new products from the 2017/2018 annual catalogue.  Ordering from our new catalogue starts on the 1st June.  If you’d like a copy of the new catalogue please contact me through my website.

2017/2018 catalogue Stampin' Up!

Anyone that knows me knows I love earthy colours and texture so when I saw the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack I knew it would become a favourite.  This DSP is perfect to use with the Wood Crate Framelits but I thought it would also look great on cards.  I’ve paired it with the new Lovely Words Thinlits and the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

I’ve made the DSP the hero of the card.  I just love the texture of this piece.  I also added some to the inside.  I couldn’t stop there because the other side of this piece of DSP is just as amazing.

These cards were so quick and easy to make I thought “what else can I come up with using the Wood Textures DSP”.  I’m usually struggling to have one idea for a blog hop.  This hop I had to limit myself to four ideas lol

How gorgeous is this new In Colour, Lemon Lime Twist?

Or do you prefer Berry Burst?  I love how the Stitched Shapes Framelits co-ordinate so well with the Lovely Word Thinlits.

My assistant Marvi didn’t really have a favourite card as none of them had any Twine or Ribbon on them that he could pull off.  I think he was more interested in the camera today.

Colour INKspiration Challenge C109

Colour INKspiration C109

Here’s my design for the Colour INKspiration Challenge C109.  This time the challenge requires you to use Cherry Cobbler, Dapper Denim and Pool Party.  We can also use any neutral colours and metallics.

Wood Crate Daisy Delight Stampin' Up!

I haven’t made a card for this challenge, I’ve made a small crate with note cards.  I’ve used Serene Scenery DSP for my Wooden Crate.  The Pool Party wood grain pattern is perfect for the challenge.

I’ve made 3 little note cards to go in my wood crate and added some envelopes as well.

I’ve used a clear block stamped in Pool Party to create the background behind the daisy.  I think the small daisies stamped on the envelopes look super cute.

I hope you like my project.  I’d love you to leave me a comment.

CTC 127 – Favourite Retiring Product – Annual Catalogue

This weeks Challenge is to CASE your favourite retiring product from the Annual Catalogue

CTC 127

I’ve chosen to CASE the “Thanks To You” card on page 88 of the Occasions Catalogue

Beautiful Banners Stampin' Up!

I’ve changed the card to Pool Party card stock.

I’ve also changed the embellishments on the banner, using Flourish Thinlits in Silver Foil behind the sentiment.

I love the border stamped on the sentiment, it matches the stamping on the card.

Thanks for stopping by.

ESAD Eastern Palace Suite Blog Hop

ESAD Eastern Palace Suite Blog Hop

Thanks for joining me and 21 other demonstrators on ESAD’s Eastern Palace Suite Blog Hop.  You may have hopped over to me after seeing Cheryl’s great project.  When you’re finished on my page make sure you click on the next button and hop over to Maree’s project.  I’m sure you don’t want to miss out on any of these amazing creations.

Today we are highlighting the Eastern Palace Suite, available to purchase 1-31st May 2017.  Stampin’ Up! have released these products one month ahead of the new catalogue launch.  There are 2 Bundles available to purchase, the Starter Bundle or the Premier Bundle

Eastern Palace Bundles

The Starter Bundle come with a FREE pack of Very Vanilla Note Cards and Envelopes and the Premier Bundle come with a FREE pack of Very Vanilla C6 Envelopes and a pack of Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock.  Who doesn’t love something for free?

My project uses the Window Box Thinlit Dies as well as the Eastern Medallions Thinlit Dies.  They work well together as the Eastern Medallions Dies fit perfectly with the Window Box Die.

Window Box Thinlit Die Eastern Palace Suite Stampin' Up!

I’ve used Smoky Slate for my Window Box and embellished it with Basic Black and Lemon Lime Twist.

I’ve alternated the die cuts on the side of the Window Box.  I’ve also added in some stamping from the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set in Basic Black and Lemon Lime Twist and finished off each side with a Basic Rhinestone.

My assistant Marvi was on hand for the photo shoot.  He inspected the box only to find nothing in it.  In fact, I think he poked his tongue out at it.

I had seen an amazing blog from Tricia Raineri and she had made some hexagonal cards to go in the Window Box.  I CASEd her idea and made 3 matching cards.

Here is a picture of the box and matching cards together.

Marvi wasn’t sold on the cards, judging by the look on his face, but I think they’re cute.  There was a bird on the fence that was much more interesting for him to look at.

Now it’s time to hop over to Maree’s blog and check out her wonderful project.

Thank’s for stopping by, I’d love if you left me a comment.
