Creative Inkers Christmas Blog Hop

Creative_Inkers_Blog_Header

Welcome to another fantastic Creative Inkers Blog Hop. This time we are doing a Christmas one to get you all excited for the up-coming season and of course to give you some great ideas for your own Christmas projects.

I have used the stamp set called Get Your Santa On from our new Holiday Catalogue.

For this first card I made it for a recent team training day held by Stampin Up as a swap. I kept it very simple as I made a few of them. I have used the Santa stamp and coloured him in using our Cherry Cobbler Blendabilites. I have then backed it on a scallop circle piece of cherry Cobbler cardstock. I have embossed the background using the Lucky Stars Textured embossing folder, also from the Holiday Catalogue. The sequin on his hat is from  Frosted Sequins.

For the second card I have cased this one from pinterest by Kathleen Wingerson.  I just love how it turned out. I have cut out a star in Red Shimmer card and also in Acetate and stuck them over a cut out piece on the card base. I have then used a glue dot and stuck the santa image to the acetate.  I have used the Confetti stars punch to punch out the little stars scattered around the card. For the inset I have added back the star that was cut out of the front and stuck that on a piece of Cherry cobbler cardstock.

Clever Owls

Good afternoon, today I have a cake and matching card to share with you, that I made for my sons teacher’s 30th birthday last month. His block at school are called the clever owls so it was only fitting that the card and cake were one too.

Both owls are identical in size as I used the same tools for both.

First of all here is the cute card I made:

photo 4(10)

I have used the circle framelits for the owls body, and embossed the centre part with the stars folder. the bow is made using two hears and sticking a circle in the middle of them. The feet are just scallop circles. I have done an ombre effect down the side of the cake.

Here is the matching cake:

ESAD Holiday Blog Hop

Good evening and welcome to my blog, and of course another great ESAD blog hop. Didn’t you just love Keryn’s project.

For my posting I have two cards to show you. I have made some shaker cards from products in our new Holiday Catalogue.

For the first one I have based my card on a design I found on the web and then made it my own. I have found the Confetti Stars Punch great for shaker cards, the tiny stars make great confetti for the centres, and when you punch out a couple of different colours, it is very cute. I have used my markers and coloured in a tree from the set Festival of Trees. This is a photopolymer stamp set, so for only $33.95 you get 13 stamps. I have masked and sponged the grass at the base of the trees. For my shaker layer I have used the Shaker frames from page 205 in the annual Catalogue, and moulded them around the larger circle. The embossing folder is called Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Last but not least is my sentiment, this is from our current promotion, and you can earn this for free. It is called Good Greetings.

Here is a picture with the envelope. The middle of the card is the same as the envelope.

For my second card, I made this at a class I attended last month and is also a shaker card, so I thought I would share it as well.

On this card we have used the Star framelits as our base. We have embossed the star with the Perfect Polka Dots folder. The sentiment is from Wonderful Wreath Frameits Die set. Don’t you just love the border at the top and bottom, this has been created with All is Calm Designer Washi Tape. You get five different designs in this set. We have just finished it with lining the edge with some cut offs from our Silver Glimmer Paper. The envelope has been created using our Envelope Punch Board.

Creative Inkers Holiday Blog Hop

Badge Blog Hop Final

Good evening and welcome to the first ever Creative Inkers Blog Hop.  Tonight we have for you some fantastic ideas using products from the new Holiday Catalogue that is released tomorrow.

I am going to share a 3-D item I made for our last team meeting. I have made a candy stick that you can hang from your Christmas Tree. Why buy those candy canes from the shop when you can create your own unique treats. I have used the new Stamp set called Bright and Beautiful. This is a set of 8 stamps and the stars coordinate with the Star Framelits in our main catalogue.

For the center star I have used our Simply Pressed Clay and pressed the stamp into the clay. I have then dipped it in gold ink and clear embossed them.

here is a closer look at my stars.

ESAD Annual Catalogue Blog Hop

Good evening and welcome to the ESAD blog hop. I hope you have had a great time going through everyone’s blogs. Haven’t they done a fantastic job.

For my share I have made a couple of cards. The first two are using the new stamp set called Work of Art. This is my favourite set at the moment and is so versatile.

This one I made for our team swap. At the time I had a cast on my hand and I couldn’t use scissors very well so I had to make my card very simple, but I loved how it turned out.

Here it is with the envelope:

For my second card, I have also used the same set and also the new in colours. This card I made at a class I attended:

Sneak Peak from the 2014-2015 Catalogue

good morning and welcome back to my blog. Isn’t it getting exciting, only 5 more days and the new catalogue starts. As demonstrators we are very lucky to pre-order some product and have a play. Today I have a card I made for our team training day last Saturday. Sadly I couldn’t make the training but I did get to join in for the swaps.

For my card I have used the stamp set called Work of art. This is a very versatile set and another great one for one layer cards.

Due to injuring my thumb and having it in a cast I have not been able to do much cutting so I needed to keep my card quite simple. The birds are from the stamp set called Wetlands and they have been embossed.

I have used the new 2014-2015 in-colours, Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey and Tangelo Twist a long side Sahara Sand.

Enjoy the rest of your week.
