Stampin’ Up! Onstage Display Stamper 2017 Blog Hop Day 7

Day 7! Last day of our Blog Hop! what an adventure it has been! Its been a great experience to 1. Be an Onstage Display Stamper.. and 2. Join many others around the world share our creations with you all! If you ever get a chance just do it!

Now here is a new stamp set that you will be seeing a lot closer to Easter… Sweet Little Something… Now I didn’t want to reinvent the wheel…. as we already have a very cute bear stamp in our current catalogue.. But I found that this rabbit could be used to create pretty much what you did with the bear… but what makes this bunny stand out more is that it looks just like a photography if stamped right with the right colours! Here I have stamped it with Berry Burst, Blushing Bride… I have stamped off with a layer so I wasn’t adding in another colour! Now onstage they said why not try it with Basic Black and then add some colours… so make sure you keep your eyes peeled ready to see this bunny take the world by storm….

I’d been dying to try an Eclipse Card…. and I thought why not use the Bunny for it…HOP! It looks so good with these blues…… what do you think?

Thanks again for hopping and leaving some love in the comments… make sure you continue on….

Stampin’ Up! Onstage Display Stamper 2017 Blog Hop Day 6

Day 6… As this blog goes live I will be halfway to my holiday destination with my 2 beautiful Children! If only my husband and our beautiful dog could come too… But someone must stay home and watch the house….

Today I share another Scrapbook layout as well as a card…

This layout is simple but I added some of the beautiful flowers from the Perennial Birthday Stamp set.. I have also added some of the beautiful Painted with Love Speciality DSP… these flowers look great heat embossed in Gold .. but I can also see many other great ideas, which Stampin’ Up! have shared in the new catalogue.. Bring on January! 

I’ve heat embossed  the flower onto the Vellum and made a shaker card with the Gold Glitter Flakes.. teamed with the Petal Passion DSP and the Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon, it can make a simple card look fancy! Don’t be afraid to play with vellum!

Thanks again for hopping and leaving some love in the comments… make sure you continue on….

See you tomorrow!

Stampin’ Up! Onstage Display Stamper 2017 Blog Hop Day 5

Day 5… I’m glad you are still with me! Some days I think it is easier to create then to blog lol But I can’t have you all come visit me to see my creation.. But it would be fun!

I did say on Day 1 that I did more Scrapbook layouts then cards… I really feel many forget to record their photo’s… It is so easy to take photo’s these days… All mine are from my phone…  I know my phone has a really great camera…. so why not print them out!

Here I have used the Petal Passion DSP and coloured in a flower with the water color pencils and fussy cut it out.. I’ve also added some Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon.

Here I have coloured the DSP with Watercolour Pencils again.. but only added a light layer of colour… its the same pencils and colours from the other days… I just didn’t put a heavy layer on. The Happy Birthday Stamp is from a new stamp set called Perennial Birthday… YOU WILL NEED TO ADD THIS SET TO YOUR COLLECTION!!!!! LOVE LOVE IT! I just love the different size fonts……. Again throw some Gold Glitter Flakes at your page and where they land glue them down!! Don’t overthink!!!

Thanks again for hopping and leaving some love in the comments… make sure you continue on….

See you tomorrow!

Stampin’ Up! Onstage Display Stamper 2017 Blog Hop Day 4

Hello Day 4! You Are My Sunshine…… and what better way to make this page stand out is with a Crepe paper handmade flower! Just cut out a circle with some cardstock and add some glue and start adding the ribbon. I finished mine off with a Gold Die cut flower.. I’ve again used the Heart Happiness Stamp.. and Gold embossed the outside along with the words… This stamp set coordinates with a new set of framelits.. so you don’t need to fussy cut like I have! Again the  Painted with Love Speciality DSP is the star of this layout! The Gold Foil adds that touch that just adds more dimension without the bulk or time…

Hearts just pair nicely with this paper…. I stamped and embossed with Gold on Berry Burst cardstock and then cut them out… a very quick card.. perfect for a birthday card!

Thanks again for hoping… Please leave some love and hop on… 

See you tomorrow!

Day 3 already!! I hope you are enjoying the Hop?

Today’s I’m sharing what I made with the Painted with Love Speciality DSP.. This paper has Gold Foil Accents on one side of all the papers.. and Brushstroke imagery on the other side.. I’ve tried to layer up the papers on my 6×8 layout.. and I’ve also added some Current Embellishments to add some fun and used the new Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon to add some more texture to the layers. And why not add more Gold Embossed Stamped Hearts using the Heart Happiness Stamp! Isn’t my daughter Beautiful!!

Why Not add this beautiful paper as the BASE! Just breaks it up a little…. layer up the  washi tape you are hoarding along with strips of DSP… The 6×8 layouts are just perfect size for quick pages… and using up scraps of paper….

This was our last Hospital Stay in Melbourne. My son has Epilepsy and we have been travelling from Queensland to Melbourne for Brain Surgery.. He has his second Brain Surgery next year. We Love that we can stay with Ronald McDonald House. I love that Stampin’ Up! Also Supports RMH too! Makes it extra special to work for a great company!  

Thanks again for hopping and leaving some love in the comments… make sure you continue on….

Stampin’ Up! Onstage Display Stamper 2017 Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome Back to day 2! How beautiful were yesterdays creations! I’m excited to share more with you today and I can’t wait to see what everyone else has shared!

Today I’m sharing a 6×8 Scrapbook layout and a card with you!

Today I’m featuring this beautiful Petal Passion DSP again.. I really enjoyed colouring it. When you use the Water color Pencils from Stampin’ Up! you can put a lot of colour down without colouring in much.. if you have a nice juicy Blender pen it will spread it like paint! If you haven’t purchased new blender pens for awhile add it to your next order! They come in packs of 3! It really makes a difference! I love that our pencils can add that touch of colour you need to any of our papers especially this Petal Passion paper! Did you see this new ribbon? It’s actually Crepe paper! Its all stitched together and comes in 3 colours.. this is Berry Burst… it just screams PARTY!!! So make sure you get some Picture Perfect Paper Ribbon in January!!

Here is my card… I have pretty much done the same as the above Layout…. You will be amazed how quick you can colour.. love that the paper can be coloured to what ever colours you need….. You will need at least 2 packs of this paper!!

You might have noticed I have added some Gold Glitter Flakes.. they are a hexagon shape and are only in Gold,,,, On the Scrapbook layout I just picked up a few and threw it at my page…. then stuck it down with some glue… they aren’t too hard to pick up with a pick up tool… Stop thinking too hard about where you should place things… just stick where they land… It will feel more natural…… I dare you to give it a go!!

Thanks again for popping by and checking out my blog again…Make sure you leave some love in the comments! Enjoy Hopping around!!

See you tomorrow!

Stampin’ Up! Onstage Display Stamper 2017 Blog Hop Day 1

23550398_10155876258117329_7280917722192681821_o

Welcome to the Stampin’ Up! Display Stamper Blog Hop! we will be sharing 7 days of our creations.. and I hope you hop along and check out what new will be coming in 2018 and what other Demonstrators have done with their supplies they were supplied from Stampin’ Up! With! You would of just hopped from Aurelie Fabre… and then after me you will get to see what Danielle Bennenk has done with her creations!

I took a different approach to most and decided I would go more traditional scrapbooking. I hear a lot of people say that they can’t see how Stampin’ up! can be used on a scrapbook page….. Well I hope you come for the ride this week and see what I have created. I stuck to 6×8 Layouts since we had limited space to display and I have also added some cards in as well!

Here you will see I have used Current and New Up and coming products…. The feature of this page was to use the Stamp Set called Heart Happiness, It is a Photopolymer stamp that has 15 stamps in the set and I feel it a very good price for a stamp set. I have also used the new Designer Series  Paper called Petal Passion. You will see this DSP show up on many of my pages and cards.. Its a Black and white design so you can go to town with our Water Color pencils, Markers and Blenders.. it is double-sided… And the designs are just stunning! (Can’t wait to use the stamp set and thinlits that go with this!!) The Ribbon is also new Night Of Navy 3/8” Corduroy Ribbon. Its just beautiful ribbon…. You will love it!

This page is what I call USE YOUR SCRAPS!!! very basic… and I nearly didn’t display it… But I wanted to show that you can just do a very simple page.. with a few strips of paper… you could add some journalling to it to explain the photo’s… This is actually ME cracking a whip! Yep I’m an Aussie country girl…..  I do have a video on it.. I’m very proud of! lol

Please leave me some love in the comments and keep jumping to see what is new!! Click Next!
