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 "Technique Savvy" and I've chosen to use Embossing Paste.     These cute little 7.6 x 7.6 cm (3" x 3") cards feature designs created using the Embossing Paste and masks made from the Doily Builder Thinlits Dies.   I simply cut three doilies, placed them over the Whisper White Cardstock and applied the paste over the mask.   The Whisper White one uses the embossing paste straight from the jar!   The Melon Mambo one uses a mask made from Melon Mambo Cardstock and has picked up the pigment from the cardstock creating a pink tinge to the paste - I love how it did that!   The Pool Party one has a drop of Pool Party ink added to the paste - I did this when it

Welcome to the Ink It! Stamp It! Blog Hop. This month we are sharing 3D projects. You may have arrived here from seeing the Carolina'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. I've created a selection of boxes and packages each containing gifts for my Bingo Class attendees. As I had a range of different shaped gifts I needed packaging to suit. On the left are little boxes 8.5cm x 8.5cm and on the right little pockets 9cm x 15cm made using the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper. These boxes are also made from the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper. The smaller boxes are 7cm x 7cm and 4cm high, the larger box is 9cm x 9cm and 7cm high. The bases have been made with Whisper White Cardstock. These packets are so easy to make, just wrap the Designer Series Paper around your gift, trim to si


Hello and welcome to February's Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop. It's such an honour to be part of this amazing team of talented Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world and we look forward to sharing and inspiring you with our creations. This month we are featuring the Dear Doily and Well Said Bundles. I've combined both these bundles to create three very sparkly birthday cards!   The Doily Builder Thinlits Dies are so much fun to use, and work perfectly with the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets - just peel away the backing, attach to the back of the Gold Glimmer Paper, place the die on top and run it through the Big Shot using Precision Base Plate, peel off the other backing and voilà a sticky doily!   How cute is the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder? It's so delicate and pretty and makes a stunning background.    This is the largest doily in the selection, and makes a pretty statement on its own. The R

The butterfly was stamped with Powder Pink on Whisper White Cardstock and adhered to Powder Pink Cardstock.   The flower and leaves stamps are from F
