Stamp Review Crew...Bonus Sale-a-bration!


Its time for another Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop! and for this one we are sharing our projects created with the lovely "NEW" Sale-a-bration products that we have earned. 
In the South Pacific Stampin Up! region, you get to choose free product from the SAB brochure for every $90 spent, or in the case of the products l have used today $180 spend...For that l got to choose the gorgeous "Friendly Hello" bundle of stamps & dsp...So pretty!

I have used my Stampin Blends in Fresh Freesia & Granny Apple Green to add a hint of colour to the images and then these were layered up onto a couple of the Tailored Tags., with some foliage from the new Bough Punch. 
Then they were all popped up on a layer of the Fresh Freesia dsp, with some In Colour ribbon, black twine and some 21-23 In Colour Jewels for the finishing touches.

If you are happily hopping, you would have arrived here from the fabulously creative Jay Soriano and l'm sure he had something amazing to share! 
But if you've just landed here, you can follow the hop and see all of the wonderful crew projects by clicking the link above or "Next" banner below.

Just Add Ink#587...Choose Two!

Good Morning everyone!

This week our Just Add Ink challenge is from Chantell! She has challenged us to choose two of the elements listed above. 
For my project, l have gone with some pretty florals choosing a "Circle & Gold Twine" as my two elements.
The colours are such a pretty combination and were dictated by the gorgeous Harvest Meadow dsp and they are Mist Moonlight-Calypso Coral/Cajun Craze-Bumblebee/Mango Melody-Blushing Bride-Old Olive-Mossy Meadow-Balmy Blue.
The base is embossed with the Bark 3D folder and l have added some Gold Twine & Blushing Bride Frayed grosgrain ribbon and some Polished dots.

Lots of lovely projects from the team, so don't forget to click on the link above to take a peek at those!

Just Add Ink #586...Just Add "Summer" BLOG HOP!

Happy 2022 friends!

Just Add Ink are back and we are celebrating the New Year with a full design team blog hop. Our theme for this one is summer! If you get lost, take a detour or find a road block, just click on the JAI link above and you will find a full list of hop links on the challenge post.

Summer is definitely my absolute fave season. I love less layers, sunny days, the beach and colourful blooms!

For my project, l have used the gorgeous "Blossoms in Bloom" bundle, taking inspiration from the icy poles for colour! I have used my Stampin Write Markers direct to rubber, channeling my inner Shelli with a huff of breath to moisten the ink for stamping...Love the textured effect this technique gives! With the heat and humidity we currently have in Melb, my garden is a riot of butterflies and winged things...So of course adding a pretty butterfly was a given!

The colours l've used are Melon Mambo-Daffodil Delight-Pumpkin Pie-Granny Apple Green & Highland Heather on Basic White and a Coastal Cabana base. A little bling for the small bloom centers using the 21/23 In Colour Jewels...Sweet, Simple and such pretty colours!

If you are happily hopping, the next on the loop is the lovely and so talented Lou Kitzelman No doubt her fabulous project will inspire!

With brand new mini & Sale-a-bration catalogues to create with, l have chosen two if the new SAB freebies...Friendly Hello & Simply Marbelous dsp. A little layered stamping and some Stampin Blends colouring. 
I have so many half packets of bling, l've decided to try using them up by changing the colours. The two enamel dots (bottom right) were originally Pear Pizazz l think, but now they are Granny Apple Green thanks to Stampin Blends.
