Stamp ‘N Hop – November 2020: 3D Project

Hey Stampin’ friends, I’m so excited to be back with the Stamp ‘N Hop this month (if you missed me last month check out the project I created here). Today we are sharing 3D projects. If you are hopping along from start to finish you’ve come from Susan Simpson’s blog.

I don’t usually make 3D projects. I think they are darling and I am so impressed by crafters and creators who are able to make and use 3D projects on a regular basis, but I just don’t usually do it! Last weekend Stampin’ Up! hosted their first ever virtual OnStage event. Due to the global pandemic it was important for our safety that we didn’t travel to Salt Lake City, Utah for the previously planned OnStage Live event.

My direct team gathered to watch the events on Friday so I created a little gift box using the Perfect Parcel Dies. I also printed and cut out the logo for the belly band around the box! I thought I was so clever and my team loved the goodies inside.

I used Pool Party for the box and then created the belly band out of Pacific Point. The colors I chose coordinated really well with the theme of the weekend! I added stripes of Melon Mambo, Granny Apple Green, and Mango Melody. We had so much fun learning new tips, tricks, and techniques during OnStage@Home this year. I can’t wait to have more about OnStage@Home and the upcoming January-June 2021 Mini Catalog to share with you soon.

If you don’t already have a demonstrator (US Only) I’d be happy to assist you with all of your Stampin’ Up! needs. I supported virtual classes during the pandemic and will be continuing them as part of my regularly scheduled programming. Click the “shop now” banner link above to shop my online store!

Colour Combo Blog Hop: November 2020

I’m back! If you follow me outside of the blog hop you will see that I made a card for the challenge and shared it, but I missed my chance to sign up for the blog hop in October! Check out my card here.

The idea for this months card came together so quickly! I chalked it up to having a great inspirational combination this month. If you’ve ever played along with a challenge or a blog hop you know that sometimes the inspiration given by the host can really stretch your crafting muscles.

If you are following along with the blog hop you just came from Sigrid Joch’s blog. If you joined from my IG link or other social media make sure you click the next button to keep hopping!

I used the polka dots from the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks and a #2 pencil to create the pattern on my background. I alternated filling in dots using the eraser on the pencil dipped in ink just like a stamp! This process seemed tedious and I wasn’t 100% sure it how it was going to turn out, but I love it! Now I have so many more ideas of ways to use this mask in the future!

I used sketch #457 from Freshly Made Sketches. I draw a lot of inspiration from the sketches the hosts put forward and I often use the style over and over again. I rarely get to play along live so if you click the link you’ll see that this sketch is from a few weeks ago!

Thank you so much for hopping by today! Don’t forget to leave some love in the comments below and click the next button to visit the rest of the Colour Combo Blog Hop creators today!

Unlikely Inspiration!

When I was thumbing through the brand new 2020 August – December Mini Catalog way back in June I was overcome with new ideas and thoughts of how I was going to use all of that great new product to share my love of creating! THEN I remembered that we had just launched a brand new Annual Catalog full of so many beautiful new items and all of the sudden I was overwhelmed with ideas!

On page 24 of the new mini I saw this adorable product suite called Trimming The Town. In the bottom right hand corner of the page is this cute little bag and tag that I just loved. I could not for the life of me figure out which stamp set the word’s and sentiments came from. I scoured the mini and the brand new annual catalog when finally it dawned on me…the DSP!

So while I was waiting for my 2020 AD Mini Catalog pre-order to arrive I searched my crafty stash for items I could use to re-create this tag! In the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Card Pack I found two of the most perfect cards!

These two cards helped me created a fall version and a winter version of the same tag that I turned into a card! For these two cards I just hand cut our the words that I liked best for each card and I have left overs to make more!

Finally, my mini catalog order arrived and I was able to make my dreams of turning that cute tag into the perfect Christmas card! Follow me on Instagram to see how a put it all together!
