Welcome to the Friends of SUBA Blog Hop

Welcome to the Friends of SUBA August blog hop.  We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrator friends that have met through attending fantastic Simply Unique Business Angels courses, run by Louise Sims and Pip Todman, to help with the technology side of our business.  They are highly recommended by all of us.  You can find out more here.

Whether you have just join our blog hop or hopped over from Carrie I hope you enjoy our projects.

Our theme this month is Christmas.

I am one of those people who love Christmas especially the run up when you are making cards and gifts for those you love to filling stockings and wrapping up presents.

For this blog hop I decided that I would make a boxed frame using some of the products from the wonderful Santa Workshop Suite.  I decided to use the following products: the stamp set, dies and Memory and More card pack.

I stamped the stamps using memento ink and then water coloured them in using our water colour pencils.  These were then die cut and Wink of Stella was added to add a shimmer.

Next I used some of the stickers in the Memory and More pack to add embellishments and cut one of the Merry Christmas cards for the middle square.

I then stuck these to Real Red and Garden Green squares which were cut using the Stitched Shaped Framelits.

I wanted a simple coloured background to fix the squares to, so chose one of the papers from the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Papers.

Finally to finish it off I made a bow using Real Red ribbon.

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

Stamp N Hop – Casing the Annual Catty

Stampin n crafting Logo

Welcome to another Stamp ‘n Hop Blog Hop

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

This month’s theme is Caseing the Annual Catalogue.

Caseing is an acronym for “Copy and Share Everything”.

When it comes to CASEing stamping – it can mean creating an exact copy of a card or project that you saw or received or it can mean using a card or project as an inspiration.  What ever it means to you, CASEing is a great tool to have in your craft kit!

I did find this challenging as I could not make up my mind which card/item I would CASE.  In the end I chose the card on page 60 using the Coffee Cafe stamp set as I have not used this stamp set before.

The ink colours I used are Soft Suede, Grapefruit Grove, Daffodil Delight (ribbon), Pineapple Punch, Petal Pink and of course Whisper White.

For the card base I used Petal Pink card stock.  The mat layer is a piece of the 2018-2020 In Color Designer Series Paper.  This was stuck to the card base.  Then the strips of paper were stuck at angles to form a back ground. For this I used Petal Pink and Grapefruit Grove card stock and a strip of the Pineapple Punch DSP.  Then I stamped the hearts and coffee beans from the stamp set in Soft Suede.

Next I stamped the coffee cups using Grapefruit Grove and Soft Suede ink and die cut before putting them together.  I die cut a piece of Grapefruit Grove card stock to go on the middle of one of the cups.  To this I fixed some Daffodil Delight Double Stitched ribbon across the cup and stuck a bow on top.

Finally I fixed the cups onto the card using Stampin’ dimensionals.

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

2018 SF Happy Holidays BH

Stampin n crafting Logo

Welcome readers to a new blog hop I am participating in for the first time this month!  I’m excited to join the Stampin’ Friends Blog Hop and see all their beautiful projects!

Image may contain: textMost of us are now thinking of Christmas and what to make or buy for our family and friends.

For my projects this month, I wanted to use one of the Suites from our Annual Catalogue as we sometimes miss these when the Autumn/Winter catalogue comes out.  My chosen suite this month is Under the Mistletoe which consists of the Mistletoe Seasons stamp set, Under the Mistletoe designer series paper and of course matching card stock and embellishments including ribbon.

My first project is a mini album.

Whilst I was attending a summer scrapbook crop I was taught how to make a mini album using a sheet of 12×12 DSP.  As I wanted samples for a Christmas Craft Fayre I decided to make mine using Christmas DSP.
I have used Real Red card stock to make pull out journalling cards so that the pages that are seen can hold more photos.
For the album cover I used Read Red card stock and fixed the ribbon between the DSP and the cover to make it stronger and of course hide where it was stuck.
Then I cut Old Olive card stock to break up the Real Red cover.  On the front cover I also cut a piece of Whisper White card stock and using our lovely Stamparatus stamped the mistletoe and bow.  I love how the Stamparatus ensures that you can line everything up and mass produce images.
Once everything was stuck I decided that it needed a bot of sparkle so I brushed Wink of Stella over the bow to make it shimmer.

My second project is a Christmas card.

Again using the same colours as above I mat and layered the Old Olive card stock onto the Real Red card base.  As I was already using the Stamparatus I added the sentiment to the last plate and stamped it beneath the mistletoe.

Stampin Dreams November BH

Welcome to this month’s Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop

Stampin Dreams BH Logo

The theme for this month is Christmas.  In our Stampin’ Up! Autumn/Winter catalogue there are loads of wonderful products from stamp sets, dies, punches and embellishments.

I love using stamp sets and punches as these are ideal for the customer who has to watch the pennies and does not have a Big Shot.

For this Blog Hop I decided to use the Candy Cane Season stamp set with the matching punch to make a 10 cm x 10 cm card which could be used as a card or as a gift label.

As the theme is Christmas I chose to use Real Red and Old Olive ink as these colours fit in with the Christmas theme and matched the Designer Series Paper I was using.

Here is my card which can easily be made by any level of stamper.

As you can see I have chosen a Whisper White card base.  I cut a 9.5 cm x 9.5 cm piece of DSP from the Under the Mistletoe DSP.  This I then stuck to the card base.

I then cut a 8.5 cm x 8.5 cm piece of Real Red card and stuck this onto the DSP.  I stamped holly and berries into each corner of a 8 cm x 8 cm piece of Whisper White card stock which was then stuck to the Real Red card stock.

For the Candy Cane I first stamped the outline in Black Memento ink and then stamped the stripes in Real Red and punched it out.  This was stuck to the middle of the stamped Whisper White card stock.

To finish off the card I stamped the bow outline using Old Olive ink and then stamped the inside bow stamp using the 2nd generation technique where you first stamp of the ink onto scrap paper and then stamp where you want it to be. This gives a lovely toned effect to the bow.  This was then punched out and stuck to the candy cane.

I hope you like my simple Christmas card.  You can make a few more and put them into out Baker Boxes to make a lovely gift.

Please do leave comments as you hop around this month’s blog hop.

Scrapbooking Global November BH

Welcome to another Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop.

Scrap booking Global Blog Hop

This month’s theme is Winter Techniques.

In the UK we have a Christmas Jumper Day where everyone wears a Christmas Jumper and raises money for Save The Children charity.  This year it is being held on Friday 14th December.

I decided that I wanted to design a layout using the Cable Embossing Folder.  As everyone knows Christmas jumpers are bold and bright, I decided to cut out a jumper from the reindeer patterned Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper.

I then made a template and cut the smaller jumpers from Real Red card stock and even smaller jumps from Old Olive card stock.

The Real Red jumpers were embossed using the Cable Embossing folder and the lines on the Old Olive jumpers were made using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and the Simply Scored Metric Scoring Plate.

I stamped the title using the Christmas stamp from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set in Real Red ink.  Then using the Brushwork Alphabet I stamped the words Jumper and Days in Old Olive ink and Night of Navy ink.

Finally I have left space to mount the photo which will be taken on Friday 14th December.

I hope you have enjoyed my simple layout.  Please do leave comments as you hop around this month’s Blog Hop.  To visit Marga and see her scrapbook layout please click on the Next button.

Colour Combo November BH

Stampin n crafting Logo

For the Colour Combo blog hop we are given three colours to use for our project.  This month we have been given the colours: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Basic Gray.  These three colours can be found in our Neutrals Colour Family.

Whether you have joined me hopping over from Tricia’s blog hop or are just starting the Blog Hop with me, I am sure you will see some fabulous projects using these colours.

For this month’s Blog Hop I decided to use Foxy Friends stamp set and the three colours swayed me towards stamping a Reindeer.  The main body and head were stamped in Crumb Cake ink, the antlers were stamped in Soft Suede and the legs, eyes and nose were stamped in Basic Gray onto Whisper White card stock.

This was then die cut using one of the Ovals from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

For the base card I used Crumb Cake card stock and embossed a Soft Suede cardstock mat using the Layered Leaves embossing folder.  This was fixed to the base card with the raised indentations facing the card base.

I then cut a strip of Crumb Cake and a narrower strip of Basic Gray card stock and glued them onto the card front.  To make an attractive border around the reindeer I punched out sprigs in Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Basic Gray card stock using the Sprig Punch.  These were glued around the Reindeer.

To finish off the card the Reindeer was fixed to the card using Stampin Dimensionals.

I do hope you have enjoyed my card.  Please do leave comments as you hop through each blog.

Kre8tors November BH

Stampin n crafting Logo

Welcome to the November Kre8tors Blog Hop.

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

This month our theme is Birthdays which is quite appropriate as my stepson recently had his 30th Birthday.  So I needed to make a special card for him.

I decided to make a box card.

I made the base of the card using Basic Black card stock as I wanted to use some of our 2018-2020 in color card stock.  Once I had made the base of the card I started to decorate it using Blueberry Bushel, Call me Clover, Real Red and Daffodil Delight card stock.

I embossed the Real Red and Call me Clover card stock with the Hexagon embossing folder and stuck these onto the bottom sides.

Next I decorated the top of the card.  Unfortunately the Number dies are now retired but are just the right size for this type of card.  I punched out balloons using the Balloon Bouquet punch and then went over them with Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to give them a shimmer look.

I then decorated the Daffodil Delight and Blueberry Bushel card stock.  For the Blueberry Bushel sides I flicked Wink of Stella onto them using both the normal brush and the watered down with rubbing alcohol to give a starry night look.

For the Daffodil Delight sides I stamped Happy Birthday from the Perennial Birthday stamp set and the little cake from Tabs for Everything stamp set. Finally I punched out 2 balloons using the silver glimmer paper and stuck them onto the card.

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

Ink & Share Scrapbook BH

Stampin n crafting Logo

Welcome to November’s Ink & Share Scrapbook Hop.  This month’s theme is Winter Holiday.  Whether you have joined me from Sue of are starting the blog hop with me I hope you like my scrapbook page.

In England, when we think of Winter Holiday the first thing that springs to mind is skiing and snow.  I decided to continue the theme and layout that I did for last month’s blog hop but using a Winter theme.

For this layout I continued with the stamped line of trees from Sheltering Tree stamp set.  These where stamped using Early Espresso ink.  The to make the snow I used the Craft White Ink and using the blossom/leaves stamp from Sheltering Tree I stamped snow onto the trees and above in the sky.  I used another stamp from this set to stamp the snow on the ground.

The photo was taken a few years ago and was taken looking across the village green to the old cottages in Castle Rising in Norfolk where I had family.  After the photo was taken we went out to make a snowman.

This photo was mounted onto Mossy Meadow and Basic Gray card stock.  The same card stock was used to make a banner going down underneath the photo.  The word Winter was stamped in White Craft Ink.

Finally I die cut snow flakes using the snow flake dies from Colourful Seasons and dazzling glimmer paper.

Now that you have seen my scrapbook page, I hope it has given you ideas to do your own page.
