You have come to my blog from the lovely, Monika O’Neill.  Blogs are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

I have a double spread scrapbook layout using the Candy Cane Lane DSP, Cookie Cutter Bundle & Star of Light stamp set.

I haven’t done any journalling, as I have created this ready for Christmas this year, and it really isn’t that far away!

Every December, my girls and I make gingerbread men and tiny gingerbread houses and we decorate them. It takes us the whole weekend but we have made it our annual tradition.

My next project features the Blooms & Bliss DSP. I adore the colours in this paper pack; Blushing Bride, Island Indigo, Mint Macaron, Rich Razzleberry, Sahara Sand, Sweet Sugarplum & Whisper White.

The sentiment is from the Suite Sayings stamp set. The flower is from the Crazy About You stamp set and coordinating punch, Flower Medallion.

This card uses the same Blooms & Bliss DSP, but in the blue tones!

 

The next DSP to feature is from the Holiday catalogue, Presents & Pinecones. This has been my favourite paper pack this season! This is a shaker card using the Delicate Ornament thinlits.

My final project for today features the Floral Bouquet DSP with the Crazy About You stamp set and coordinating Medallion punch.

I love the classic blue and white of these papers.

World Chocolate Day!

Dear Crafters,

Today is World Chocolate Day and what better way to celebrate than with a card in its honour!!!

I LOVE chocolate, no I mean I REALLY LOVE and this card is probably going to stay in my stash as I really love it also!!!

There is a lot of work in this card, in that there are lots of little pieces to cut and glue together. You will need some patience for this one if you are to make it!

The black card base is A5 (21cm x 14.8cm) scored in the centre at 10.5cm.

Sweet Sugarplum layer is 10cm x 14.3cm (sponge the edges)

Black layer is 9cm x 13.3cm

12 x Chocolate pieces (chocolate chip cardstock) are 2cm x 2.5cm (sponge edges) & top layer is 1.5cm x 2cm (sponge edges then embossed with Floral Affection Embossing folder). Glue each piece down with Tombo Multipurpose glue.

Make sure you do sponge the edges of all the cardstock as it gives it the depth needed to make it look real. Yes, it is a lot of work but how cool is it though?

Cut a piece of DSP to 11cm x 8cm. At each side I folded it over and glued to the back so the block actually looks wrapped.On the right side it is cut at 6cm up to the left side to get that angle.  Before gluing it down, add some aluminium foil.

How beautiful is this colour combination too? I love the Sweet Sugarplum, Chocolate Chip and Black together.

I even added another piece of chocolate to the bottom right inside of the card and the envelope (although I didn’t take photos of these, oops!)

What do you think? Will you give it a try?

feminine, Flowers, Stampin' Up!, Thank you

Suite Sayings

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a card using the Birthday Blooms & Suite Saying stamp sets from the Occasions 2016 catalogue!

I love how these flowers pop off the sides of the card and this sentiment can be used for so many different things, this one for Mother’s Day.

My colour scheme: Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz, Basic Black & Whisper White.

This is a single layer card, so no dimension, but it really doesn’t need it.

I stamped the flowers first and then coloured them using Stampin’ Write Markers and some Wink of Stella over the top on the petals (you can see it below)!

Bordering Blooms

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a card that I have cased from Pinterest by a gentleman called Brian King. I thought it was such a clever idea to create such a gorgeous background from a border stamp!

My colour scheme: Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight & Whisper White.

IMG_5623

I stamped the border image multiple times with Black ink on Whisper White card stock.

I coloured the images with Stampin’ Write Markers and layered it onto Bermuda Bay card stock, then onto a Melon Mambo card base.

The sentiment is from the Suite Sayings stamp set (Occasions 2016 catalogue) and I used the circles punches and then sponged the edges. A small bitty flower was added and a rhinestone to finish it off.

Don’t forget to decorate the inside of your card & envelope too!

I love this colour scheme, how bright and cheery it is!
