Be Inspired by Vellum Blog Hop

Hello there lovely reader of mine :)

I hope this finds you well and your week is going great. Its time for me to hop with my talented friends from the Be Inspired Team and tis time its Vellum we are playing with.

Now please don't judge me, while my project definitely uses vellum its not the star of the show but my goodness its cute :

I designed this for my Fall Retreat at the Manor House in October and I loved the cute little sleigh ornaments I made simply out of lolly sticks stained with our gorgeous inks. 



 Alpine Adventure Bundle is such a fabulous duo I think most people overlooked it in the catalogue.  The Vellum was embossed with our new Subtle Dynamic Folder and it really turned that smooth Vellum into something special. If you have them in your stamp room please go and give it a go now to see just how fab it is, if you haven't please go and buy some here :)



Two of these ornaments fitted perfectly into an acetate box, making them a perfect gift for someone this Festive Season. I will have a list of all the products used at the end of this post if you are interest in all the little details. 

I hope you enjoyed my project today now please go and see what the rest of my fab friends have in store for you. You can hop over to Maike whom will be part of the 2019 Artisan Designers Team.. Congratulations sweet Maike !!!

Making Christmas Bright Blog Hop

Hello there,

YAY its time for another hop with the Stamp To Share Team and we are focusing our attention on the Making Christmas Bright bundle from Stampin'Up! 



This set was probably quite overlooked in the catalogue but I have to say its one that's so much fun to create with and a really good stand by to have as it works so well with other Christmas related images and not just Christmas.

I designed this project for  team training in October and made a couple of versions. I am always late with my cards usually at Christmas and I am even worse with tags so this year I am a little ahead.

The tags were simply cut from Crumb Cake card, shaped with the scallop tag punch and a little background stamping was added for a bit of interest. 

Next came the bright bulbs, they were stamped and punched out with the matching punch  sleazy and fast. The colours used we Real Red, Mango Melody and Pool Party . A little sentiment and a few punched branches from the Sprig Punch  quickly brought this project together. 
I hope you liked my easy tags today using the Making Christmas Bright bundle, and I hope you will hop on to check out the next set of goodies created by the fabulous Paula Dobson
