Stampin Creative October Blog Hop

Hello.... Boy are the evenings drawing in now. 

Here we are again with another blog hop from the Stampin Creative.

This months theme is Fancy Folds and I know you will have enjoyed a fab creation from LOUISE. Such a talented lady. 

I decided to try a fold I have never done before and to add to the excitement I pulled a stamp set I haven't inked yet either.

Here is my Waterfall Card using Gift from the Garden. 
I always thought these were harder then they are and I will definitely be making more as they are so effective.

A simple mechanism allows you to reveal the images one by one.

I kept to a simple pallete of Watermelon Wonder, Soft Suede and Wild Wasabi to ensure the Fancy Fold was the feature of this card.

I hope you enjoyed this fold and be sure to try it yourself (it's not that scary - honest!).

Now hop on over to PIP for some more fab creations

Squishy Bag fun...

It's day 2 on the 30 day Challenge so here is a card I have designed for this weekends class. 
We are focusing on techniques with Stampin' UP!  reinkers and this is a card which uses those and very little else. 

As you can see it creates a very soft background with little effort but be warned a whole lot of mess!
I call this the 'Squishy Bag' technique but I'm sure there is a more technical name for it out there somewhere lol.
I will be back tomorrow with a tutorial and a different colour way for you.

I used Whisper White for the card above while the card below uses Glossy White. Both cards were created at the same time with the same bag so it shows the different look you can create just by changing the cardstock used.

Enjoy your day and be sure to pop back tomorrow for a tutorial and different card

Happy New Year.....

No I haven't gone a little mad or overslept by 3 months lol... 

Today is the start to the new Stampin' UP! year. A fresh set of goals to achieve, new friends to be made and along the way a tonne more fun to be had.

A new goal for me is to blog more and as if she had read my mind my lovely upline MONICA set a challenge for our team to blog for 30 days in October.

Here is a recent card I made for a swap with fellow demos and it is especially meaningful as I look back on 3yrs of being a demonstrator.

One of the things I love about being a demonstrator is the fantastic support and encouragement you get from your upline, fellow team mates and other demos. There is a real sense of friendship and love within our crafty family and each and everyone I meet in my Stampin' UP! journey really do make me happy.

Join me tomorrow and for the rest of the month as I challenge myself and hopefully bring you a little inspiration along the way.
