There are some colours within the Stampin’ Up! colour families that I don’t often use, most of them seem to be yellows and oranges, so I took this week’s Dynamic Duos Challenge of using the colours Tangerine Tango and Old Olive. Now, Old Olive is a long time favourite, but combining it with Tangerine Tango, hmmmm. But I am glad I had a go at this one, I am pleased with how it turned out and think I may be using this colour a little more from now on.
The image is from the Serene Silhouettes stamp set, which has been coloured with markers. And I have used the Two Tags die and the Apothecary Accents Framelits, both very useful and versatile.
I hope this inspires you to have a go at using a different colour combination.
Hope that you’ve all been enjoying the gorgeousness of the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. The Holiday Catalogue also went live on the 1st of September, but we thought we’d give you a couple of weeks to get into it before we bombarded you with the beautiful things the Holiday Catalogue brings!!!
So another Artful Stampers Hop ~ this time to celebrate the Holiday Catalogue Launch!
You may have hopped here from Melissa at Bee Devine Designs, but if you are just starting here, keep hopping on through. I’m stop 4 on the Hop and I’m glad you’re here sharing in the fun!!There are lots of gorgeous Christmas goodies in the Holiday Catalogue, but I thought I would showcase something different. So, my projects for today all use the Orchard Harvest suite on pages 28-30 of the Holiday
Catalogue. I am making these for my sister, who has a property with heaps of apple trees. Eventually they want to open a cidery, so I thought I should keep her inspired with these gifts. She doesn’t spend much time on her computer, so here’s hoping she won’t check out my blog and see them before she gets them!!I have used the Orchard Harvest patterned papers and the Perfectly Preserved Stamp Set for the card and the cute little box. The box also uses the Cannery Set Framelits Dies which match the Perfectly Preserved stamp set. Love how Stampin’ Up! match everything up. These also come as a bundle to save you even more money! Love it!
And I have made a Lavender Bag and Coaster, both of which use the Orchard Harvest Designer Fabric. Unfortunately the fabrics didn’t have apples on them, so I had to use pears instead!
I have a few other things to make to add to this collection, but I have been away for the last few days so haven’t had a chance to get it all done. But I’ll share them all with you before I send them off to my sister.
Now it’s time to visit Anna for the next stop on our Hop. I am sure you will find lots of wonderful ideas to inspire you. And in case you get lost or there are broken links just pop back here for the full list of stampers taking part in this hop.
Don’t forget to leave comment love as you trip along the hop from blog to blog. We like to know what you think about the things we’ve been doing!! And if you have any questions please feel free to send me an email.
Happy stamping, and I hope you find lots to inspire you!
Recently, I was asked to donate some boxed sets of cards for a charity fundraising event. I am very excited to be asked to do this, and wanted to make the box something a bit special, and I found this design on Tanya Bell‘s blog, and thought it was perfect. Thanks for sharing the tutorial for this one Tanya.
The white flap of the box opens up so that you can put the cards and envelopes inside.
For this particular box I have used Primrose Petals as the main colour, along with the Apothecary Art Stamp Set, the Framelits Labels Collection and some retired bits and pieces. I have made two of these boxes and each has 6 of my hand crafted cards in it. As well as that, I have also put together 250 advertising packs, each with information about my stamping business and each also has a gift tag inside. I will show you the advertising packs in another post, but let’s just say it has definitely been a big project!
Hope you are having a crafty day. Happy Stamping!
Only two more days until the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue goes live to you. And today I am going to give you a look at some more gorgeous goodies that will soon be available. The colours I have used are Early Espresso, Pink Pirouetteand Very Vanilla, and a new stamp set called Layered Labels. I have stamped in Early Espresso and then coloured inside using a Pink Pirouette marker. The image has been cut out using the new Apothecary Accents Framelits, and the brown layer with the Top Note Die. The vanilla and brown layers have both been run through the Big Shotusing a new Embossing Folder called Lacy Brocade. Very lovely and lacey! 🙂
That layer of brown card stock is another new product being introduced into the catalogue, it is called Core’dinations Card Stock, and it is a sandable card stock, great for distressing, sanding or tearing. Looks great, don’t you think? It is available in Early Espresso (used here), Cherry Cobbler and Gumball Green (a new In Colour). It also comes with a sanding system and dust buddy.
Now, this card was CASEd from another demonstrator… somewhere…. again, I apologise, but I can’t remember where I saw it. I often do a quick blog hop and have a look at a few sites to get some inspiration, but I usually get ideas and then go and do something else. So, please let me know if you recognise it, but as always, I imaging mine has ended up being fairly different. Anyway, I hope you like it.
And talking about Blog Hops, make sure you come back here on the morning of the 1st Sept for a Blog Hop through some fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators blogs, to see lots of new ideas from the catalogue. In the meantime,
