I have been a part of this wonderful challenge group since March 2011, click Here if you would like a peek at my very first official design team post...It has been nearly 9yrs of wonderful friendships, gorgeous inspiration and loads of fun, laughter and special memories.

We'll be choosing some other entries to receive a little something also - to be eligible all you have to do is leave a comment on each of the blogs along the hop - 14 stops in total.

With our challenge theme being "Celebrate" l was able to create whatever l liked as long as l was celebrating something!
Birthdays are always a a reason to celebrate, so using the gorgeous "NEW" Stampin Up! "Timeless Tropical" bundle and coordinating products, this is what l came up with.
This suite is so much fun to create with and is very versatile, even for masculine cards!

Stamp Review Crew...Beautiful Day!


A big "Happy New Year" everyone!

I am back hopping at Stamp Review Crew today with our focus set "Beautiful Day". As l love colouring, this set is great for using any colouring mediums with its lovely large images.

I've gone with Stampin Blends using Call me Clover for the Butterfly and a mix of Daffodil Delight-Flirty Flamingo-Calypso Coral-Granny Apple Green for the other floral details, which are an image from "Bloom & Grow" and the "Lots of Happy" card kit.
I stamped the background with the gorgeous "Birch" background stamp in Flirty Flamingo on a Flirty Flamingo base.

I made this card for a friends birthday and as l was gifting her this fabulous "Frankie Gusti" candle with gorgeous artwork from Maria at "Say Hola", l wanted it to coordinate.
It looks beautiful and smells amazing (Kaffir-Mango-Coconut) and l really wanted to use colours as close as possible to those on her artwork.

If you are happily hopping, you would have landed here from the lovely Lou Kitzelman

Now you are of to be inspired by the fabulously talented Stesha

It's Colour INKspiration time and the last of our challenges for 2019! 

Looking back on all of the colour combinations, it really is amazing how beautifully the teams projects came together, using some really interesting colour combinations. 
Especially for me, some of them l would never have reached for together, but l pretty much loved them all!

So, my project this week uses the Serene Scenes bundle with one of the floral images from Bloom & Grow, coloured with Stampin Blends.
I love a good shaker card and l must say, this bundle is so easy and fun to use. Not sure l pulled of my original concept here, but it is pretty and shows how versatile and not just for Christmas this bundle is!
