Happiest of Holidays - Merry Moose

Moose! I love him! This was a fun card we made in class a few weeks ago showcasing the Merry Moose bundle. So easy having a punch to create the moose. 

We used crumb cake and early espresso with a hint of garden green to make the tree and sentiment stand out.

Sending Love your way - Posted For You

Continuing on with the posted for you background design that I showed you a few days ago, I also created this card using rich razzleberry as my colour base. I thought that I cased this card from Allison @ Nice People Stamp but I cannot find the card again. If you know, please tell me so I can update this post and give credit where credit is due!!  

This time I didn't colour the flowers on the background instead choosing to colour the other images as the focal point using the postage stamp punch to punch them out. Love this punch!!

Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop - The World Around Us

Hello and welcome everyone to our monthly Around the World on Wednesday blog hop! Today we are showcasing our projects with the theme - the world around us. 

For me the last few weeks have been all about Christmas holiday planning and preparation so I am sharing with you some of the projects I have been working on - some are still very much hush, hush but these ones I can show you now :)

I love the Poinsettia bundle so very much and have been using it for heaps of my class projects for cards, 3D items and home decor. 

And I love these slim line cards that are very popular at the moment so I was keen to try one for myself. Super, super easy - I cut my cardstock in a 8" x 8" square then scored it down the middle. This way it fits into  standard DL envelope (for those of us in Australia/NZ at least!) I randomly stamped the poinsettia stamp over a piece of whisper white cardstock then die cut 3 stitched squares trying to get a random assortment of the stamped image to make the card look less uniform. I I also stamped the card base with the same image. I then coloured them with blends markers. 

I also made a wooden ornament to hang on the Christmas Tree. I found these wood slices about 18 months ago - I *think* it was on Ebay. I simply made a poinsettia flower, added some sprigs and a liberal dose of Wink of Stella then glued it to the wooden slice. I then added a red ribbon hanger. 

I cannot wait to see how everyone else interpreted this challenge, I sure had fun with it!

Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop #23

Yippee it is time for our monthly team blog hop! This month was a colour challenge - Pretty Peacock, Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry. Not colours I normally gravitate towards but I was up for the challenge. 

My first thought when I saw these colours was a fun birthday card but as I started to play I gravitated towards flowers and then ultimately ended up using Fancy Phrases. 

I stamped the images in memento black then used my blends to colour the flowers. I did have to use another colour though - my leaves needed to be green!! 

After stamping and colouring I ran the white panel through the subtle embossing folder - it gives a really nice texture to the card. I then added some of the yellow gems from the Holiday Rhinestone pack to the centre of the flowers for some bling and a sweet little sentiment which could cover a few different occasions. 

Next up is Kristy - make sure you click through to see everyone's creations.

Posted for You

I love using the smaller images in our stamp sets to create my own designer series paper looking backgrounds. This card is really quick and easy to make (even quicker if you choose not to colour the images) I saw a card made by Lyssa @ Song of my Heart and loved the colour combination so I tweeked her design slightly and came up with this. 

This sweet flower image is from the Posted for You stamp set. I randomly stamped the image on whisper white cardstock using misty moonlight ink. I then used my blends to add colour to the leaves. I then added some ribbon, some stamped sentiments - all from the same stamp set. 

These types of cards are great for stampers who might not have a lot of supplies or perhaps you are travelling and don't want to take everything you own!
