April 2019 KBH Theme: Spring Color Challenge...

 
Good afternoon from Norfolk in the UK, today I am hopping with the Kre8tors Blog Hop and this month we have been tasked with a colour challenge.
 
We are to use a minimum of three of the following colours.
 
It is such a beautiful colour combination and I would have loved to use them all but in the end I decided on Gray Granite, Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green.
 
I love a colour challenge because it makes you think outside of the box and it is always hard to decide which stamp set to use but in the end I chose the Tea Together stamp set.
 

 
I stamped my images in Gray Granite and used the small buds stamp to decorate the teapot and teacup.  I then used the Stampin' Blends in Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green to colour them in.  The greeting was stamped in Granny Apple Green and punched out using the small scalloped circle punches.
 
I hope you like my card and I am now going to pass you on to Laura who I am sure has something lovely to share with you today.
 
Happy Hopping!

Colour Combo Blog Hop April 2019...


Good morning and welcome to the Colour Combo Blog Hop for April.  You may have joined me from Rebecca-Jo or you may be starting the hop here.  Either way, welcome and hope you enjoy what we have to share with you today.
 
This month we are using...

Pear Pizzazz - So Saffron - Blushing Bride

Such a pretty combination of colours.
 
For this card I decided to use the Hand Delivered stamp set, exclusive to Hostesses.  I have had this set for a while and I thought it was quite quirky but this is the first time I have inked it up for my goddaughter's birthday.
 
I stamped the image in Gray Granite rather than black so it was softer and I used the three colours to watercolour the balloons and skirt.  I mixed a little of the So Saffron and Blushing Bride to achieve the skin tone.





 
I hope you have enjoyed my project and I am now going to pass you on to Dorothee who, I am sure, has something lovely to share with you today.
 
Happy Stampin!

Kre8tors March Blog Hop - Bye Bye SAB...

 
Good afternoon and thank you for hopping with me today.  I am hopping with the Kre8tors Blog Hop made up of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world to say Bye Bye to Sale-a-Bration.  This is the longest promotion that Stampin' Up! run each year where you can earn lots of amazing free products. We have been spoilt this year with lots of items so much so that the two I have chosen for this hop I hadn't actually had out of the box!
 
So without further ado, the first card I am sharing with you today is using the By the Bay stamps.
 
 
I love the little stamps that come with this lovely set so chose to highlight them using the new stitched rectangle framelits.
 
I then opened up the So Hoppy Together stamp set, how cute are these...
 
 
 
I am now going to pass you on to Kathy who I am sure has something lovely to share with you today.
 
Happy Stampin'

Ink & Share Scrapbook Hop - February - New Papers...

 
Good morning and thank you for hopping with me today.  I am taking part in the Ink & Share Monthly Scrapbook Hop for February which highlights our choice of amazing new papers available to us from the Spring/Summer collection or Sale-a-Bration brochures.
 
You may be starting the hop here with me or you may have joined me from Jenna, either way, sit back and enjoy some lovely projects.
 
I have chosen to highlight the Floral Romance suite and speciality papers.  These papers are beautiful and consist of normal designer series papers and several sheets of patterned vellum, the colours are soft and very pretty.
 
I was looking around for a photograph to highlight the beauty in the papers and chose this lovely picture of my late mum and dad in their courting days.  I think mum was around 21 and dad 23.  This is one of my favourite pictures of my mum and dad, I love the old photos.
 
I was looking for some words that seemed appropriate and the words in the Wonderful Romance stamps fitted perfectly "Together is a wonderful place to be".  They were married for 58 years when dad passed away and they are together once again.



 
I hope you like my project and I am now going to pass you on to Sue who I am sure has something beautiful to share with you today.
 
Happy Scrappin'
