Picture Perfect Paper #loveitchopit

These quick cards were so easy to make...once I got over my 'issue' with cutting up pretty paper! The best way to showcase any of the Stampin' Up papers is to make projects with them. I created a set of birthday cards with just a few supplies, paper, cardstock, one stamp set & some retiring embellishments. 
The paper is so pretty on it's own you really don't need anything else to go with it!
I added some acrylic embellishments (heart, star & flower) and a pretty greeting embossed in gold.
Here are the others - some have tassels others have some tinsel thread or sequin trim.
Go on, be brace and cut up all that pretty p

Ink it! Stamp it! Blog Hop - Favourite Retiring Bundle #inkitstampit

 
Welcome to the Ink it! Stamp it! Blog Hop. The Design Team have been busy making projects inspired by our Favourite Bundle theme. The team are from all over Australia who have all created amazing projects to share with us tonight. The full line up below will guide you through all the projects and we'd love to hear from you on what your favourite current bundle is?

This is my favourite current annual catalogue bundle as it's so cute and great value for money! This bundle includes a fabulous stamp set, matching Dies for ALL the images & a 12x12" pack of the beautiful Designer Series Paper. YOU will love this bundle like me, if you haven't already got it. 
I mixed n matched the images and colours, taking inspiration from the designer paper colours. It almost looks as though the fox wants that cake all to itself! I wanted the images to be the focal point so I stamped the sentiment straight onto the designer paper, it forms part of the background. 
Here's the bundle details you can click on the picture to see it in the online store. 
If you like the colour combination, please share it on your favourite Pinterest board!
Thank you so much for joining us today. We hope that you'll join us again next month to see our New Annual Catalogue projects. I'm Carolina and to keep hopping around see the list below to see who is up next.

Flamingo or Cactus? My Onstage Candle Swaps

Swaps are always a fun part of any Stampin' Up! event. I was lucky enough to spot these cute tea light candles at Kmart on one of my late night shops. My local store is open 24 hrs, so I sometimes go after work which is usually around 9pm. It's surprising how busy it is at that time!
These cuties were a hit and after making nearly 100 I don't ever want to see a cactus or flamingo again! Lol. Just kidding. The little box holder was very easy to make and I was able to make 5 from a sheet of A4 (pic below). I added some retired washi to the tin case - a great way to use up some of that hoarded washi! As I had to fly to Sydney, I took everything ready cut & scored, this was a great idea as they would have got damaged on the way. Over a glass of bubbles I convinced my room mates to help me assemble them in the hotel room. It's always more fun to craft together.

Which are you? FLAMINGO or CACTUS?

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop CASEing Nadine Weiner



Welcome to another Crazy Crafters Blog Hop. We're so excited to share our projects and we're certain that you will find great tips and inspiration from all our creations. Inspiring us today is the very special Nadine Weiner! We've all selected a project to CASE to inspire you today. The full lineup below will help you move along the hop, so grab a cuppa and enjoy!

I have chosen this project to CASE. Nadine has stamped the floral image once the right way up & again upside down. Beautiful!

I have done something similar but with a gorgeous new corner Die from the Garden Impressions Suite of the New Annual catalogue. I cut two of the dies in Cherry Cobbler cardstock and stuck one on the bottom left corner and flipped the other and stuck it in the top right hand corner. If you look carefully you can see the join line down the middle.
The Die is so beautiful it would look great on any kind of paper project and you can even cut pieces from it to decorate your projects.

I finish this card off with a black banner and a sentiment from 'Detailed with Love' - you recognise the circle from 'Swirly Frames'..
 If you like the colour combination, please share it on your favourite Pinterest board!
