Colour Combo Blog Hop: March 2020

Hi Everyone! I’m so happy to be able to participate in this monthly Colour Combo Block Hop! It helps me to see colors that I wouldn’t normally use working together.

To create the pattern on my stitched rectangles I used a baby wipe wrapped around a clear block. I dotted ink along the edge of baby wipe and brushed it over whisper white cardstock. Then I die cut and arranged them on my card front. I love this technique for when I can’t find DSP that coordinates with my project.

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!

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.

November Colour Combo Blog Hop

Today I am participating in my 6th Colour Combo Blog Hop. I’m so excited you’ve decided to stop by to see what I have created! My favorite part about a color combo challenge is that I am really stretching outside of my comfort zone to create a card or a project.

This month we were challenged to use Sahara Sand, Pineapple Punch, and Highland Heather. While I have worked with all three colors, I never would have put them together! I used Stampin’ Write Markers and Stampin’ Blends to create my main panel background and incorporate the Pineapple Punch.

I got the idea to create my own background from @stampinthroughthecatalog on Instagram. It’s another great way to make your own Designer Series Paper when you need just the right colors. I also used the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks to create a subtle polka dot with Highland Heather ink on my Highland Heather cardstock.

I added the ribbon and twine behind my sentiment banner help it stand out. I also added three rhinestones to give this card a little sparkle…after all the sentiment is comparing the recipient to a diamond!

Thanks again for stopping by today. Scroll down to see all of the supplies I used to create today’s card and click the next button to keep hopping along! Don’t forget to subscribe to my blog to be notified when I share and check back next month to see what Colour Combo we use!

Stamp n’ Hop: Sketch Challenge

Hello everyone! Welcome to Sparkle and Stamp with Caroline Peck! I am a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in the US and I am so happy you’ve stopped by to see my creation for today’s blog hop! This is my first time participating in this blog hop.

As we get closer and closer to the Christmas Holiday season I keep created Christmas Cards because you can never have too much inspiration! Using the sketch below I mapped out where I wanted my elements to go on my card base.

I’ve seen so many beautiful cards made with the Brightly Gleaming Suite and I hope this one does the Suite justice.
