The Artful Stampers and Pootlers Blog Hop

Hi There!

I'm so excited to be joining in a blog hop with my team, the Artful Stampers from Australia, and the fabulous Pootlers team from the UK, headed by the lovely Sam Donald. I'm a big fan of Sam and love watching her videos for ideas for little bags, boxes and treats for friends and customers.

Have a look at the gallery below and be inspired by all the gorgeous projects.

Here's mine:

This was one of the cards made in a recent card class I held. This is a mixture of "old" (but still currently available) and "new" products.

I used the Wondrous Wreath stamp set for the wreath and the sentiment, and used the matching Wonderful Wreath framelits to cut out the wreath and the bow and hanger. This set has been around for a few years now, and is still one of my favourites.

To create the background I used the new Pine Bough embossing folder from the Holiday catalogue, embossing a piece of Whisper White cardstock with it and then using a dauber to lightly ink the raised areas in Cucumber Crush ink.

It's a clean and simple card, and doesn't really take too long to make.

Anyway, have a look at the rest of the lovely ideas in the blog hop in the gallery below.

Happy hopping,

International Visual Blog Hop using current Stampin' Up!® Products

Welcome to our International Visual Blog Hop using current Stampin' Up!® Products. We have all created this gallery of projects for you to be inspired by! We would love it if you could visit every one of our blogs and see a close up of our projects. Our theme this month is LOVE because as card makers we love spreading the love. You can see the gallery below and this will be on every blog that you click on so you will never be lost.

My card is a Christmas card, and I especially love the sentiment on this one, as Christmas is a time for enjoying spending time with family and friends, spreading the message of peace, joy and love.

The fold is called a diagonal gate fold, and there are lots of tutorials and videos showing how to make this. I used This Christmas Specialty Designer Series paper and the Peace This Christmas stamp set for the sentiment. I used my favourite Copper embossing powder and the Holly Berry builder punch to create the accent on the central greeting. The holly leaves and berries were stamped with the matching Holly Berry Happiness stamp set.

Here are a couple more photos:

Thanks for visiting my blog today, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss. We know that you will love our gallery of projects made from Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators around the world!
