Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Suite on You

| on

Hello, and welcome to my blog.

It's the 4th Sunday in the month, and the 'Stamping Sunday Design Team' have a Blog Hop featuring Suites from the Stampin' Up! 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue.

I have created using the divine 'Tidings of Christmas Suite'.

I have added a Vintage theme to my creations, as one of my friends wanted to have a 'Vintage Themed Christmas in July'.

My Christmas card using die cut elements, Designer Series Paper, Ribbon & 'Linen Trim'.

The criss-cross star element is die- cut from the 'Gold Metallic Specialty Paper' adhered to a 'Very Vanilla' die-cut star.

The little touch of holly leaves & berries brings in some Traditional Christmas colours.

A Gold Embossed sentiment within.

A perfect accompaniment to my card is the sweetest little pillowbox from the 'Pretty Pillowbox Dies'

A super cute gift box, or favour for the table.

The gift tag is made from the 'Tailor Made Tags Dies'.
I just shortened it a bit.

I had a little bit of Designer Series Paper left over from the pillowbox, and here is my Vintage Christmas Gift Tag.

Such a cute couple!
Both of these little darlings are made from 1 piece of 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper. 

Thankyou for checking out my creations, and I hope to have inspired you to get Christmas ready with the 'Tidings of Christmas Suite'?
Below is the list of my talented friends...
See you next month. D x

Inspire.Create.Stamping Challenges Blog Hop - 'Sketch' Challenge #095

| on

 Hi there!

The Inspire.Create.Stamping Challenges Design Team have a Sketch Challenge.

We would love for you to join in the fun... choose your stamp set or bundle, papers, colour combination & embellishments.

You can add your project to our gallery here.

I have used the cute 'Penguin Place Bundle' for my Sketch Challenge creation - available 3rd August, 2021 from our Mini Catalogue, with the Sale-A-Bration 'Penguin Playmates' Designer Series Paper.

'Happy Birthday'
This sentiment 1 of 7 sentiments offered in this stamp set.
Also, I  punched the Penguin from the Designer Series Paper, and I added a stamped bow.

A cute bow, and a 'Polished Pink' balloon!
TIP: Do you have the retired 'Balloon Bouquet Punch'? 
I punched my Balloon using the small balloon with the 'Balloon Builder Punch'!, because it's hard to fussy cut something oval or round.
I took 1 strand from the White Baker's Twine to secure the balloon.

Some embossing using the NEW 'Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder', and the circle element die cut from the 'Painted Labels Dies'.

Such a cute card!

Looking forward to seeing your project in our gallery. If I haven't inspired you, I know the Design Team will.
See you next time. D x

Just Add Ink - 'Sketch' Challenge #563

| on

Hi there.

The Just Add Ink Design Team have a 'Sketch' Challenge, and we would love for you to have some fun and join us.

 Make up your own creation copying the Sketch above, then add your project to our gallery here.

The 'Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper' was too pretty to leave in the pack.

Using 2 of the patterns from the DSP, I created the card front. 

Embellishments: Calypso Coral stitched scallop trim, Linen Thread & Pale Papaya Genial Gems.
Sentiment: 'Art Gallery' stamp set.

And another card with the same DSP, but the other way around.

The Dot pattern on top, and the Flowers below.
Same embellishments too.

I love them both!

Tip: grab your 'Paper Snips' and curl that 'Linen Thread'.

Thankyou so much for paying my blog a visit.
Did I inspire you, or did one of the ladies from the JAI Design Team?. Let us know, and see you for the next Challenge. D x
