Scrapbooking Global May Blog Hop

This month the scrapbooking global blog hop is all about Masculine!
Here is my Layout using a new DSP that will be available next month in the 2019/2020 Annual Catalogue (Wovens Threads DSP). I just love this DSP as it is vintage, feminine and masculine!

Heres my LO.

I also used Over the Moon Stamp set, Woven Heirlooms, Stitched Nested Labels dies and used a mask from the Pattern Party Decorative masks (144103)

Simple Stamping Techniques-Easel Card

Wow I have been busy with blog post after blog post lately.

This month the Simple Stamping Techniques Design Team are playing with Easel cards.

Now I needed a couple of customer gifts so I made these little easel cards using some Memories and More packs…first I used the Big Plans Card Pack (pg 196 AC 146863). I have just loved this kit. I did no stamping …all of the sticker elements were easy to layer and on a couple I mounted them onto each other or onto another card from the pack and cut out using punches or my trimmer…so this might be an idea for someone new to card making!

The other one I used was the Tea Room Memories and More Cards pack (pg 195 AC 147035) This coordinates with the Tea Room Suite on pages 14-15). For this project, I used the Treat Time set (pg 35 AC 146626) for all of the stamping and then embellished with the stickers in the pack. So quick and easy to do!

The cards are 4×6″ so all you need to do is score them at 1 1/2″ and 3″…fold over! Add another 3×4″ card to the first 1 1/2″ panel and voila your easel card is done.

All I did then was add a stopper down the bottom and I was done.

The envelopes are just half cut down normal Whisper White envelopes which I decorated. You could also make your own envelopes for these using the envelope punch board (pg 209 AC).

I tied them all up with some coordinating ribbon and popped them into a Half wide stamp case (pg 206 AC 127552). I love these cases for storage of a huge range of accessories…eg reinkers and embellishments.

Here’s a few more pics of the easel cards.

Welcome to our April Blog hop! This months theme is courtesy of our Guest Designer Mariejosee Gagnon.

Scrapbooking Global is a Facebook page of over 5,000 fans of scrapbooking with Stampin’ Up! products! Come and join us!

Here’s what I came up with using one of my favourite Designer Series Paper (AC Petal Promenade 146913 pg 190) but also making my own DSP using Stamps. So easy!

This Layout is of our Daughter Jennifer ..just home from the hospital.

I used a couple of stamp sets here ..Beautiful Day (145912 AC pg 134) and Sweet Baby (146459 AC pg 89). The Sweet Baby Bundle is also available which I’ve only just got (148345).

Other Dies used are Sunshine Wishes Thinlits (141489 AC pg 220), Ribbon is Petal Pink/WW Variegated ribbon (OC 148776 pg 11)

The tags (its a girl and the journalling tag) are from the OC Sweet Pins and Tags (148571 pg 15)

There is something so therapeutic about colouring in and these flowers were coloured in with Calyspo Coral (1440450 , Petal Pink (147272), Old Olive (144597) and Crumb Cake (144601) Blend combos.

So off we go to the next blog on our monthly blog hop. You can click on the graphic below taking you to Cheryl or the next button or you can click on the little blue frog icon below to see all of the blog hop participants.

Simple Stamping Techniques-Step Cards

This month the Simple Stamping Techniques team are showcasing step cards.

I am using a very simple stair step card that I first saw on Pinterest but I’ve just tweaked it a bit to round out the metric measurements.

This card is for a niece who has just had a wee baby boy.

For this card I used Sweet Baby Bundle (AC page 89 148344) and Labeler Alphabet (OC page 175 141936), Rectangle Stitched Framelit Dies (OC 148551), Twinkle Twinkle DSP (AC page 189), Soft Seafoam Cardstock (AC page 186), Blends used were (AC page 205 Soft Sea Foam Light 148057, Pool Party Light 144595 and Petal Pink Light 146866.

Here’s a side view.

This card folds flat into a normal envelope.

So here is my template.

You will also have to cut a mat to the middle back panel and this measures 10.5 x 10.5cm. You will also need a 10 x 10cm DSP for this panel too. For the 3 cm and 4.5 cm panels you will need to cut the DSP at 2.5 x 10cm and 4 x 10cm.

Check out the other Design Team Cards this month.

Happy Stamping!


Stamping Society April Online Tutorial

Our April online tutorial is now available for purchase!

This month we are using the Amazing Life Bundle.

Here is a sneak peek for you of our projects using this stamp set and/ or Thinlits

We are also having a blog hop to showcase this bundle and here’s my card.

I used 3 different colours of ink for this card. Call me Clover, Garden Green and Tranquil Tide.

Tranquil Tide will be retiring soon so don’t forget to stock up on ink and cardstock before it is gone for good!

The Stamparatus (AC pg 207) was invaluable here for this card.

Easy to do and I love that I can just move the plate down a notch.

I’m in love with these thinlits and have used them a lot ..especially on my scrapbooking pages. Great as a frame/journalling spot too!

I also used this bundle on our February sneek peek can see that scrapbooking page over on my Facebook business page.
