Merry Christmas - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop



We're feeling mighty festive this month as we play with the All is Bright suite from the Holiday Catalogue. Welcome to another Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team hop!

I made this sampler-come-scrapbook-page for display over the Christmas season and then for keeps in the album later. My white square bases are 3x3" and the next layer up is 2 7/8" square - I'm a narrow borders kind of gal! If you make these now and then, or are teaching them in a class, you can make a chipboard frame to help easily line up the squares - see below.




Chipboard frame for placement ^^^. Inner square is 9 1/8" square.

Snowflake Showcase 2 - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Snow is Glistening by Stampin! Up - Layout with Snowfall Dies - Susan Wong, Artisan Design Team


Welcome to our second Snowflake Showcase hop! (Missed the first one? Click *HERE*). For this month only, Stampin' Up! have these gorgeous products available and today I get to feature the Snow is Glistening stamp set. It was a perfect choice for one of my fav pics from visiting Canada this time last year - especially with the die cuts in White Velvet Paper! So it's a little hard to see but there are a bunch of snowflakes stamped in light grey on the background and the Christmas tree made a fun 'washi tape' look at the top left and bottom right of the page. I used Cherry Cobbler to match my cosy scarf!

Country Home - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop


Welcome to the October Artisan Blog Hop! This month we're showing you an array of ideas with the gorgeous Country Home stamp set and coordinating products. I LOVE this suite! It has so many great neutral accessories along with it that I've been using to no end - and that yellow! Mmmm... 

This card is ALL about the texture. I used the Chicken Wire Elements as a template to sponge through on the base and used some under the sentiment, frayed the Braided Linen Trim, used the Tin Tile DTIEF on Country Lane designer paper and then tore it and sanded it, popped on a Galvanized Clip and splattered Frost White Shimmer Paint across the whole lot! Woah, catch your breath!

While we're talking fun with texture, this next card is a Christmassy take on the Country Home stamp set. I slathered the Frost White Shimmer paint over Coastal Cabana embossed cardstock which turned it into more of a Pool Party hue.
