The Artful Stampers Blog Hop Challenge 34

Aloha!!  Phew!  I didn’t think I’d make it for this weeks challenge as my computer is on it’s way out.  This week we have a sketch challenge, I’ve used the Stampin Up I Like You Hostess Set.

I’ve also used a few new items!

Stampin Up I Like You

The colours I’ve used are Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron and Gold.  The script is Gold Paper that is available in the New Neutrals Colour Collection Stack.  I received it as a Spin the Wheel Prize in Hawaii.  It was repackaged for us, with just the Gold and Silver Papers.  We get very spoiled on these trips.

Stampin Up I Like You

Here’s the sketch for you to use as inspiration in your own cardmaking.

Stampin Up Painted Petals

As I write this I am currently 270 miles to my destination and goodness knows how many thousand feet above the Earth! Home time is 2.56am, local time around 7.30am the day before. Saturday I think.

It’s time for another blog hop challenge tho. I made these before I left at Linc n Learn and am typing up the post on the plane to Hawaii for the Stampin Up Grand Vacation.

Please excuse the photography, they were taken on my iPad just before we left.

Hope that my photos have all worked. Next we are onto Alison Barclay

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Bundle

Welcome to Monday and another Blog Hop.  It is well and truly Monday in my house, because I’m not ready with my post and my kids are driving me nuts already!  – Okay I’m back with my post :)  This week I’m using Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Bundle to do my ultra quick Colour Combo Challenge.

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Bundle

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Bundle

The purple of my choice is Rich Razzleberry, teamed with Black, White and Silver.  A fairly simple card – just cut out the largest butterfly from the Die Set in Rich Razzleberry, a stamped image down the side of the white with a strip of Silver Glitter Card, and a stamped sentiment.  Too easy.  I did also tie some bakers twine into a bow, but it looks more like a squashed Daddy Long Legs!

Here’s the challenge if you’d like to play along at home

Colour Combo

Lets continue on to Annette :)

New Stampin Up InColors 2015 – 2017

Stampin Up Stippled Blossoms

Stampin Up Stippled Blossoms

I am so sad to see Stampin Up Stippled Blossoms on the retiring list.  If you are after this set, best be quick, the Clear Mount has sold out only Wood Mount is available.

I decided to take The Paper Players sketch challenge for this week along to Linc N Learn to see what we could come up with. Here’s the results:

I was going to have just an Elegant Eggplant oval behind the flower, but the card was just too heavy, so I’ve added some Whisper White to it.

Stampin Up Stippled Blossoms

Then I couldn’t decide whether I wanted an eggplant border or a white border, so we made one of each.

Stampin Up Stippled Blossoms

I still cant decide which one I prefer!

Card Recipe:

  • Stamp Set: Stampin Up Stippled Blossoms, Painted Petals, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
  • Card: Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White
  • Ink: Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant

The Artful Stampers Blog Hop Challenge 30

Hi everyone, welcome to another Monday Blog Hop.  This week we have a Sketch Challenge, I’m using Stampin Up From the Herd.

I’ve had this stamp set for some time and have used the Happy Birthday from it plenty of times, but I’ve not used the main image which is what attracted me to it in the first place!

Stampin Up From the Herd

Coloured with my trusty Aquapainter, Inks and Reinkers.  There are quite a few colours in this image, each animal has 2 colour layered in it.

Stampin Up From the Herd

Here’s the sketch for you if you’d like to play along at home.
