I hope you have been enjoying the 2015-2016 Stampin’ Up! catalogue!!  I lurrvve it!!  There are lots of fabulous new stamps, punches, ribbons, kits and big shot accessories.

My amazing stamping team, Eureka Stampers, is having a blog hop tonight, to celebrate the arrival of the new catalogue.  You may be starting with me or have come from the talented Janine’s blog. (She’s my stamping great grandma!!)

I always love a sketch challenge to get my creative juices flowing, and my friend Emma pointed out the Sweet Sunday Sketch blog to me.

I decide to try Sketch 271 as I felt I could do something with it.

I wanted to play with the new Brights Designer Series Paper stack as I think the new flower print is really cute.

I wanted to make a card for my sister, as she has had a difficult time this year with depression, and I wanted her to know that I’m here for her. So the Friendly Wishes stamp set had the perfect stamp for me to use!! I also used the new Lots of labels framelits. I am going to be using these a lot!! And the smallest one is sooo cute!!

I love doing paper piercing and used the new updated essentials paper piercing pack to do the circle around the sentiment. I hope you like it too!

I couldn’t stop at just one project though! I also got the Bakers box thinlits and the matching stamp set, Homemade for You. As this was my first play with the die, I kept it simple. It’s very easy to put together and doesn’t it look cute! And can you see the bling!! Silver sequins!! My sequin wishes are now complete!!

So does that stamp I used on the front mean I need to buy my sister something? Isn’t a cute box enough!! hehehe

It’s time for these ones to say Goodnight

goodbyes

Welcome to the Eureka Stampers Retirement Blog Hop! You may be starting here with me, or have hopped around from the fabulous Mel.

One of my favourite tools to use (aside from the Big Shot) is the Colour Coach which is sadly retiring. I hope they bring out something similar. I find it really handy when I am looking for a new colour combo. For our hop today, I got out my trusty colour coach and had a look at the suggestions for Bermuda Bay (fav colour at the mo!!). I decided to go with Bermuda Bay, Tangerine Tango and Smoky Slate. The next step was to decide what stamp set to use. Fortunately, I have 47 stamp sets that are retiring so I had a few to choose from!! I decided I would feature stamps and their matching punches for my projects today.

For my first card, I used the Mosaic Madness stamp and the matching mosaic punch. I love this bundle and will be sad to see them go. I used Smoky Slate cardstock for my base and then the Brights DSP stack for the Bermuda Bay patterned paper. I carefully laid out the punched shapes and stuck them down with fast fuse. I added a piece of the silver satin ribbon (it looks very close to smoky slate) and used the Apothecary Accents framelits (which are retiring) and the Lots of Thanks stamp set.

Here’s a closer look.

For my second card, I was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest by Card Creations by Beth.

I stuck with the same colour combo as before but used a different stamp/punch bundle – Label Love stamp set and Artisan label punch. I also used the Alphabet Press embossing folder (retiring) which is great for baby cards.

easter hop es

It is time for a blog hop with my fabulous stamping team, the Eureka Stampers!! With Easter quickly approaching, our theme is, of course, Easter!! Can you believe how fast the year is going!!!

You may be starting with my blog, or possibly have come from Carly Middleton’s blog. Don’t you just love her cute project!!

I have a couple of projects to show you today. I think the Happy Easter Bunny stamp in the Occasions catalogue is very cute and I wanted to showcase colouring the bunny.

For my first card, I wanted to use the Subtles Colour Collection and my blender pens, and I carefully coloured using Pink Pirouette, Soft Sky, So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz. I stamped using staz-on ink as I didn’t want it to bleed when I coloured.

My second card is made using the Brights Colour Collection and the Flowerpot DSP as the background. To be a little different, I used the bow builder punch. Isn’t it cute!!

easter hop 4

I think I will be sending these to my nieces for Easter with an ITunes gift card!! Easter eggs do not travel well in the mail!!

My third card is made using the Indescribable Gift stamp set. I think the flowers in this set are beautiful. I have also used my aqua painter to colour the flowers. I’m happy with how it turned out.

I decided to make a couple of items. First up, I did a Mojo Monday Sketch, No. 274. You can check out the sketch here.

The first card I did was nice but I thought it need something else. So I used the Vine Street embossing folder and Voila! Awesomeness!!!! What do you think?
