Stampin Stars Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Stampin Stars Blog Hop.  We're celebrating the launch of the Autumn/Winter Catalogue be showcasing some of the new products and hoping to give you lots of ideas and inspiration to get crafting!

If you have just joined me from the Sticky Elf - isn't she fab!  I had the pleasure of working with Nic at the Great British Craft Show recently and I love her style - so clean and stylish.  If you haven't yet had the pleasure, when you have finished here just click on the back button to take you there.

So - to my project.  I was inspired to try this by my new downline Ally Blackman.  As an idea it's been around for a little while but I had never made one before.  It's much easier than you think and it makes for a great little gift or stocking filler.

I love the new stamp set White Christmas and it's just so easy to build a picture.  I wasn't too keen when I heard that Stampin' Up! were introducing photopolymer stamps but  now I'm convinced!  I was able to build my "story" ready to wrap around the can in minutes.  And of course I had to make a matching card and gift tag to complete the set.  Sadly you can't see how sparkly they all are.  My only decision now is what do I hide in the can?

My "story" before it was wrapped around the can!

Can you spot all the new products I've used?  No?  Well I've popped them below - perhaps that will help!

If you are ready to move on click on the forward button and that will take you to the very talented Christine Widdowson.  She always has a slightly different take on things so I am sure you will enjoy her work.  If you have come from Christine's page - then click on the back button to take you to the sticky elf.

Thanks for popping by!
Just in case any of the technology isn't working - I have copied the list of all those taking part at the end of the post so you can always pick up the thread if you get lost!

Work of Art

I haven't had time to play with many of my new sets yet so I thought I'd show you a few more examples from my launch event.  I had a lot of fun playing with this stamp set - it's so versatile and can be used in  so many ways to create quick, simple cards.

This was one of my make and take projects.  A really simple card using just a few colours that compliment each other and then combining work of art with another favourite stamp set and punch - Papillon Potpourri and the Bitty Butterfly punch.

Why not have a go at recreating this yourself using your favourite colour combination?

Time to start again

Well - it's been a while since I last posted  - a lifetime I hear some of you say!  I will be posting more regularly from September - but it's been so long I thought I better try and see if I can remember how!

So - I am still crafting and still a Stampin Up demonstrator!  The new catalogue has just launched so I will try and show you some of the the cards I have made.

I made this scrapbook page using the fantastic Work of Art stamp set and 3 of the lovely new in colours - tangelo twist, hello honey and lost lagoon.  I threw in a little so saffron and soft suede and voila!
