Today I'm excited to be hopping with the Australian girls from the Artisan Design Team. We are having a South Pacific Blog Hop and are showcasing projects from the Gingham Gala suite. The gorgeous projects my talented friends have created will totally inspire you!    There are five light, fresh colours in classic gingham checks in the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper - Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather and Lemon Lime Twist. As I wanted to use all the colours these little 7.6cm x 7.6cm (3" x 3") note cards seemed a great way to do it!     The butterflies from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set have been white embossed onto vellum paper and punched out with the co-ordinating Butterfly Duet Punch.   I've layered them onto a square of Shimmery White Cardstock that has been watercoloured with the co-ordinating ink and cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I also splattered from Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and added some wate

Welcome to the Ink It! Stamp It! Blog Hop. This month we are sharing projects from the 2019 Sale-A-Bration and Occasions Catalogues. You may have arrived here from seeing the lovely and talented Stephanie's project if you're hopping along already. If you started here, welcome and please make sure to visit all the Design Team's blogs, the full line up below will guide you through all the projects.    These two cards use the Amazing Life Stamp Set - it's such a fun set and full of great sentiments and images! I used Lovely Lipstick and co-ordinated it with paper from the All My Love Designer Series Paper.     The strip on this card was created by white embossing the cake images onto Shimmery White Cardstock and water colouring it with Lovely Lipstick Ink. I added Lovely Lipstick Enamel Dots from the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots pack and some Rhinestones to tie in with the Silver Glimmer Paper strip.   The little stitched scallop edge was created

Hello and welcome to this month's Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You are currently visiting Angela Meiritz-Reid from Christchurch, New Zealand. The complete list at the bottom will guide you through all the inspirational projects created by the team.   The theme this month is "Love is in the Air" and with Valentine's Day not too far away it is the perfect time to get organised!      My projects have been created using products from the All My Love Suite. The All My Love Designer Series Paper is a gorgeous collection of hearts and florals in classic romantic colours. I love the hint of Balmy Blue in the paper.     For my card I've layered the All My Love Designer Series Paper, wrapped it in Flirty Flamingo Ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack and added some Lovely Lipstick enamel dots from the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots selection.     The hearts have been created in various ways, the stamped heart is from the Meant to Be S

Hello and welcome to January's Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop and my very first as an Artisan Design Team member! I am so excited to be part of this amazing team of talented Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world and look forward to sharing our creations with you.   This month we are featuring the Forever Lovely and Meant to Be Bundles along with the All My Love Designer Series Paper and Ribbon Combo Pack. I've chosen to showcase the Meant to Be Stamp Set and co-ordinating Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies together with the All My Love Designer Series Paper.     To create the background of my card I started with a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock. This cardstock is perfect for water colouring and performs perfectly! I used Flirty Flamingo ink to co-ordinate with the All My Love Designer Series Paper. The hearts are also in Flirty Flamingo and are from the co-ordinating Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies.   This gold heart frame is my favouri

  Yay what a great way to start the year - being a Guest Designer on the Creating Kindness Design Team Blog Hop! This team is full of amazingly creative Stampin' Up!® demonstrators and I'm thrilled to be asked to hop along. The theme for this hop is Bendi Cards! I had never made one before and was excited to try something new. It was lots of fun and way easier than I thought. If you'd like to learn how to make a bendi card Jenny Hall has a great video tutorial here .   The butterflies are from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set which comes with a co-ordinating Butterfly Duet Punch. The spotted paper is from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper which is FREE during Sale-A-Bration!   "Celebrate Your Day!" is from the Hello Cupcake Stamp Set also FREE during Sale-A-Bration - I love the fonts!
