Welcome to the October Kre8tors Blog Hop.

Whether you have joined me from Trisha or just started this Blog Hop with me, you are sure to find some lovely projects.

This month’s theme is a colour challenge with a difference.  This month we have been given a photo and to use three of the following colours:  Soft Suede, Granny Apple Green, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Gray Granite

For my project I decided to use the Pop of Petals stamp set and the Four Petal Flower punch.  I stamped the Soft Suede card base using the leaf from the Pop of Petals stamp set with soft Suede ink to give a background.

The sentiment is from the Rooted in Nature which was stamped in Gray Granite onto a Whisper White stitched circle.  This was mounted onto a Pumpkin Pie scalloped circle cut using the Layering Circles dies.  This was then mounted onto the base card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the three flowers I stamped 4 flowers in Real Red, 2 in Pumpkin Pie and 3 in Granny Apple Green for the leaves.  These were stuck together, moulded using the ball end of the Take Your Pick Tool and glued onto the base card.  A Basic Pearl Jewel was then added to the middle of each flower to finish off the card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my project.  Please do leave comments as you hop around the blog hop.

Stamp N Hop – Christmas Jump Start

Welcome to another Stamp ‘n Hop Blog Hop

Hello you may have hopped over to me from Jo and seen the lovely project she has done or you have just joined the Blog Hop with me.

My first project is a notebook.

I made this on a summer retreat this year but decided to use the ‘Under the Mistletoe DSP, Real Red and Old Olive card stock, with a scrap of Basic Black.

The covers are cut from mounting card, covered in the DSP and finished off using Real Red card stock.  Two pockets were made for the inside front cover using the Real Red card stock and decorated with the DSP.

The outside front cover was decorated using Basic Black and Old Olive card stock.  The Merry Christmas was die cut using the Merry Christmas Thinlit Dies from the Autumn/Winter catalogue.

My second project is a curled paper wreath.

This is an easy project but looks very effective.

For this project I used a 25cm polystyrene wreath, dressmaking pins and one pack of Under the Mistletoe designer series paper.

First I chose 3 suitably patterned papers from the DSP pack.  Each of the 6 sheets were cut into 25cm x 1.5cm strips.  These were then folded in half and curled using the Stampin’ Up! bone folder.  A dressmakers pin was pushed into the fold of the strip and pinned into the wreath.

The middle was a circle of Silver Glimmer paper and again using the Merry Christmas Thinlit Dies Merry Christmas was cut out of the Real Red card stock and fixed to the wreath.  To finish it off a loop and bow was attached.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects today.  Please do leave comments as you go through the blop hop.

Ink & Share October BH

Stampin n crafting Logo

Welcome to another Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop.  Whether you have joined me from Karen or starting the blog hop with me I hope you enjoy my project.

This month’s theme is Fall in in England Autumn.

It is currently the start of Autumn in England and the trees are slowly changing from shades of green to shades of yellow, orange, rust and red.

During my September card classes I used the Sheltering Tree stamp set as I had not used it and loved how the card samples turned out.  I decided to use it again for my Autumn themed scrapbook page.

For my page I stamped the tree and branches in Black Memento Ink.  The trees were then stamped using the following inks – Garden Green, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze.  Some were stamped straight onto the branches whilst others were stamped 2nd or 3rd generation.

The photo was mounted onto Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze card stock.

The 3 leaves were stamped using the baby wipe technique.  This technique is where you add drops of reinker onto a baby wipe then using the baby wipe as an ink pad.  I used the plain leaf stamp from Colourful Seasons to stamp leaves onto Whisper White cardstock and die cut the leaves using the matching dies.  These were then stuck onto the page.

Finally I needed a title but wanted to keep it simple as I did not want to overshadow the rest of the page.  So using the Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry cardstock to cut rectangles I stamped the word Autumn using the Make a Difference stamp set.

Now that you have seen my scrapbook layout I hope that is has given you an idea of what you can do.

Colour Combo October 2018 BH

Stampin n crafting Logo

Welcome to this month’s Colour Combo Blog Hop.  Whether you have arrived here from Astrid or started the blog Hop here, I hope you enjoy the projects you are about to see.

With this blog hop we are given 3 colours and the 3 colours for October are:  Real Red, Blackberry Bliss and Powder Pink.

My first thought was would these colours go together, then what stamp set could I use that did not include flowers.  I decided to use the Cookie-Cutter Christmas stamp set for 2 reasons, one is that I have not used it before and the other was that my husband and I have just heard that we are going to be first-time Grandparents in April.

I therefore decided to use the teddy bear stamp for my card.  As Stamping’ Up! have changed their ink pads this year and as I am in the process of changing over to the new ink pads, I was surprised to find that by using the different types of ink pad, I was able to make each teddy look different.

I first stamped a teddy bear in each of the 3 colours on to Whisper White card stock and mounted that onto Real Red card stock.  This was then stuck onto the Powder Pink and Blackberry Bliss card stock.  Finally this was stuck onto a Whisper White card base.

I hope that you have enjoyed my card and that the colours have given you ideas for your own project.
