Colour Combo Blog Hop: January 2020

Welcome to the first Colour Combo Blog Hop of the new year! Thank you so much for joining us this month. If you’ve come here from Sandra’s blog make sure you continue on the hop and leave love with each creator.

I’ve been trying to participate in as many challenges and blog hops as I can to help build traffic to my blog, but mostly to help me use my stash of supplies! I’ve always been a craft collector and more recently I’ve started to be more of a crafter!

I created this card using a brand new bundle from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog called So Sentimental Bundle. The stamp set has a bunch of really great sentiments and the dies (called Stitched So Sweetly Dies) have the stitched scallop rectangles and the stitched labels. I know that I will be using this stamp set and these dies for so many cards!

Below is the list of all the items I used to create this card! If you click on one it will take you to my store. If you don’t already have a demonstrator in the US I would be delighted to help you.

Stamp n’ Hop: SAB/Mini Catalog Showcase

Hello everyone! Welcome! I’m so excited to be kicking off the new year with my first blog hop with the Stamp N’ Hop stampers. I created this card to showcase items from either the Sale-a-bration Brochure or the 2020 Mini Catalog (formerly occasions).

While there is some super cute stuff in the SAB Brochure, I chose to focus on the Mini Catalog. That’s truly the hardest part of a new catalog launching. There are always so many ideas and new products that picking just one suite to focus on can be a challenge!

Below I’ve listed all of the products that I used to create this card. If you don’t currently have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator I would be happy to help you! Just click on the thumbnail image of the item you love and add it to your cart.

You can also use my January Host Code to earn some Extra Sparkle for free! Check it out here!

November 2019 OnStage

I made this card for one of my organized swaps for OnStage back in November. I’m finally getting around to sharing it here on my blog.

Stamp ‘N Hop: Anything But A Card

Welcome to the monthly Stamp ‘N Hop blog hop! This months challenge was to create Anything But A Card! Most of us are card makers (I need to work on being a card sender) and don’t often make other types of project so hop along with us to see what we’ve made this month.

I made these cute little match book treat holders for the Stamp ‘N Hop challenge this month to make Anything Buy A Card! These are so cute and easy to make for any time your need to give out a little treat. I used the Wrapped in Plaid Suite for a Christmas themed treat holder, but you can make them any theme you want!

I also made one using products from the Dino Days Suite that could be birthday themed! Now, I didn’t plan ahead and take pictures of the process or measurements for this project. However, there are tons of tutorials for Matchbook Candy/Treat Holders on the internet that can be adjusted to the size of your treat!

December Colour Combo Blog Hop

I’m back today with a card to share using the December Colour Combo Blog Hop combination! I’m so thankful for the opportunity to participate in blog hops and challenges during the busy Holiday season because it helps me get into my craft room to create when I would otherwise find an excuse to be busy with something else!

My card for you today is a CASE from the 2019-2020 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog that I have been wanting to make since I saw it launch in June! You can see the original on page 76 of the AC. I obviously changed the colors to fit this challenge and I now love it even more!

I used Early Espresso to stamp the heart image and the sentiment. Then I used Stampin’ Write Markers in Petal Pink and Merry Merlot (and Pear Pizzazz) to color in the flowers on the heart image. Once I assembled my card I used some Heart Epoxy Droplets as a finishing touch.
