Stampin' Creative Blog Hop - Trick or Treat

It's blog hop time again with the talented girls from the Stampin' Creative Crew and this month it's all about Trick or Treat. 

Not into Halloween I hear you say? … Well don't worry, you'll see a variety of makes from Cards that offer Tricks, like Fancy Folds, to Treat packaging, plus a few things Halloween too … so lets get started. 

Welcome to everyone who's started here and a warm welcome to those who have hopped on over from the lovely guest, Danielle who herself deserves a hearty welcome for being our guest hopper this month. 

I'm not heavily into Halloween … but I do enjoy making a few treat holders for the kids in our village, who come Trick or Treating. We're very lucky, as we have some wonderful children in our village, who all respectfully come escorted and enjoy the fun of getting dressed up and feeling part of the community.

Not having many Halloween supplies in, I had to think on my feet here, so created these mini treat holders using some patterned paper from the Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper pack, along with the Gift Bag Punch Board. 

I thought it would be fun to create a kind of stitched top to it, so punched a series of holes along the top to thread the Black Twine through. Can you see how I've used the little White Perfect Accents for the Moon?

I may well have used a variety of Stamp Sets and Dies here, but I hope I've demonstrated how we can pull together a theme from a random selection of supplies.

Hopefully you won't be scared off now and you'll hop on over to see what the lovely Caroline has in store for you. Enjoy the rest of the hop and stay safe. Thanks for hopping by.

Christmas Card Ideas - Places You'll go with Holly Berry Happiness

For many crafters, Christmas started long ago and when it comes to sending cards overseas, there is a need to think well in advance, so when I saw this sentiment in the Holly Berry Happiness Stamp Set, I knew exactly what I wanted to create.

There on my shelf, un-inked, was the stamp set Places You'll Go with the globe that I had in my mind. 

Inking up the leafy circle in Garden Green and adding some Real Red Berries, just seemed so fitting for this simple card.

I added a gentle wash of Pool Party to the background to coordinate with the card base and some shadowing to the base to help anchor the globe, a few punched holly leaves and a Banner and the card was complete. 

I hope this inspires you to get ahead for those overseas Christmas Cards and perhaps look at your stamp sets in a different light.

Spend £50 with me (before p&p) and you'll receive a copy of the current month's Tutorial Bundle. Read more by clicking on this image

Creation Station Blog Hop - Autumn/Winter Catalogue Favourites

We Demonstrators can finally share our excitement as the new Autumn/Winter Seasonal Catalogue has launched and this month's Creation Station Blop Hop is all about our favourites.

Oh my goodness, I have so many favourites this year, but I thought I'd share Merriest Wishes with you today.

This beautiful set offers a Thinlit Bundle that helps you to cut some stunning Christmas baubles. 

It's been a while since I created a suspended element card with a spinning image, but this set totally lent itself to it. Suspended on thin silver metallic thread, the bauble can be spun to reveal a different image to the back. 

I'm hoping that this short little video clip, will show the mechanism working. 


Back to Dena Rekow           forward to Jen Arkfeld

Thanks for hopping by today. I hope you've enjoyed the inspiration that we've all shared with you.

Stampin' Creative Blog Hop - Autumn/Winter Sneak Peeks - Christmas Card Ideas

Welcome to this month's Stampin' Creative Blog Hop and with the excitement of the new Autumn/Winter Seasonal Catalogue launching just next week, we thought we'd share some of that excitement with you, with a few sneak peeks. 

Eimear shared some amazing inspiration in the previous Blog, so I hope if you've started the hop here, then you stick around and hop right round to see that inspiration. There's plenty to be had here this month. 

With so many wonderful new seasonal products, it was hard to choose what to showcase.

A while back Stampin' Up! offered a stunning Stamp that was with fir and pine cones and I foolishly didn't buy it, so when I saw the new Christmas Pines Stamp Set and Pretty Pines Thinlits, I just had to get them.

Copper Foil Cardstock is going to be very popular, as it's just gorgeous. I hope you can see the thin strip surrounding the sentiment panel … 

… and the gorgeous mini Pinecone embellishments, also with a Copper finish to them. 

I hope you like my share with you today and I hope you'll now hop on over to see what the very talented Louise has to share with you from the up coming catalogue.
If you'd like to receive a copy of the Autumn/Winter Seasonal Catalogue and you don't have a dedicated Demonstrator to obtain one from, then do get in contact. 

Enjoy your weekend
