Creative Inkers Christmas Blog Hop


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.

ESAD Blog Hop – Annual Catty

Good afternoon and welcome to my blog, I hope you have enjoyed the hop so far and enjoyed Emily Campbell’s post.

It has been a crazy few weeks in my house with three birthdays and two birthday parties. It hasn’t been easy with half of my family being sick last week, and trying to organise my sons party at the same time.

In May I was lucky enough to attend convention in Brisbane and was even luckier to win a prize patrol, in this pack I won the Beautifully Baroque stamp, embossing folder and a pack of DSP called Eastern Elegance so thats what I have used as my sample. I also attended a team training last weekend where we made swaps so I have included a few samples from my fellow team mates.

I have a card made from a new stamp set called Beautifully Baroque. It also includes the matching embossing folder and DSP called Eastern Elegance. It is quite a large stamp but I loved having a play with it and found embossing it in white and then sponging over it gave the best image.


This card is using the same stamp, embossing folder and DSP but was made by Irene Wardlaw:


And here are a few cards also made by demonstrators in our team using the stamp set called Sketched Birthday:

First one is by Vicky-Lee Mueller

Hamilton Regionals

Good morning, wow what a fantastic day yesterday in Hamilton, I attended the annual Regional Training held all over New Zealand over a period of time and it was finally Hamilton’s turn (lucky last one for New Zealand). I decided to go to Hamilton’s rather than Auckland’s as I had a couple of guests who live there and wanted to attend. We had a great day filled of new techniques and a couple of wow projects taught by our fellow demonstrators, there were lots of laughs and some amazing swaps.

On that note here is my swap, I was rather pleased with it. they did take a long time to make as I had to do each one individually so they matched the clouds on the backing piece, Yes you will recognise it, I did a similar one the other week but with a different stamp.



We also had a challenge to make our name badge for the day, I ran out of time for this so I through one together at the last-minute, I decided to match my swaps.



1. Cut whisper white cardstock to 2 1/2” by 3 1/2”

2. Cut one sheet of A4 Whisper White in half.  (main card piece) Fold in half.

3. place the small piece over the front section of card where you would like it to end up.

4. Punch out 5 scallop ovals and stick them together by the very ends to create a very long cloud.

4. Place stencil over both pieces of card stock and using a dauber, gently add ink till you get the shade of colour you require. Repeat this about four times to get four layers of clouds. move your stencil over for each layer. By leaving the front piece in place you will have the clouds continuing on both pieces inline with each other.

5. Stamp any image on the front piece, I find a solid image is best. (I have used Just Believe)

6. Layer the front piece with coloured cardstock to give the 3-D effect, Use those colours to embellish the side panel. Stick on Dimensionals.

7. Add any embellishments you wish to finish the card.

  • Just Believe
Card Stock
  • Whisper White
  • Cherry Cobbler
  • Basic Black
  • Dimensionals
  • Scallop Oval Punch
  • Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die
  • White Satin Ribbon
  • Scallop Border Punch

I hope you understand my recipe, it’s easier to say it then write it.

Have a great day, and hopefully I will get to make my card for this weeks challenge over at Try Stampin On Tuesday and post it tomorrow.
