GSF Blog Hop – Sketch Challenge

Hi Stampers! Welcome to my very first Blog Hop with the Global Stamping Friends!

gsf-blog-hop
I am so excited to participate in my first blog hop – so let’s hope I actually do this right 🙂 I am actually pretty honoured to participate in the hop alongside so many talented artists! I can’t wait to see what they come up.

Now, let’s get to it. This month’s hop is a sketch challenge based on the following sketch. We have to option to follow it to a ‘T’ or really have some fun and play around with it. I chose a bit of both!

gsf-march-hop

There are really so many places you can take a sketch like this, but for this challenge, I chose to keep it simple. Sometimes I think simple cards are the best cards; think of  understated beauty. And that’s exactly what I think this is.

gsp-blog-hop-pic1

For this card I used a scrap piece of paper from last year’s Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack. I alway keep my scraps. Always. That way when I need to make a quick card, I have some paper readily available. Beside, why waste good paper? 🙂

I also used the Avant Garden stamp set that is part of the current Sale-A-Bration promotion. I absolutely love this set. It’s so versatile and can really be used with any sentiment you may have on hand. The best part is, is that you can get this set for FREE! Click HERE to learn more.

The colours used for this card include Watermelon Wonder, a hint of Cherry Cobbler using the Stampin’ Write Marker, Cucumber Crush, and Basic Black for the sentiment.  Of course, I also added some rhinestones as well, for a nice added touch!

Pretty and simple.

And thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my card. Now it’s time to hop on over to the next person…Kimberley has something amazing waiting for you as well!

Global Design Project GDP #074: Oh So Succulent

succulent-blog-1

I finally received my Oh So Succulent Bundle in the mail yesterday, I literally couldn’t open  the package fast enough! The amount of projects and cards that I’ve seen, combined with one of my upcoming classes (Succulent Garden Party), I really couldn’t get this set in my hand fast enough. I have been DYING to play with it…ok, well not dying, but as a fellow crafter you know how antsy we get when we’re waiting for a package to arrive!

I didn’t have anything else planned, so I basically dove right in to create this card for the Global Design Project GDP #074. This is the first time I’ve entered a design into any challenge, so I am excited to do so, and to also see what other designs other stampers have come up with. The only stipulation is that we need to create a design based on their sketch, which is what you see below. Though it is important to note that the sketch is just a guideline and we can make the project our own, which is where the fun and creativity come in.

For this card in particular, I decided to stick with some bright and cheery colours such as Sweet Sugarplum, Melon Mambo, and Bermuda Bay; and  of course I used the Oh So Succulent stamp set and framelits dies. The sentiment is from the new Avant Garden stamp set that is part of the current Sale-A-Bration promotion. You can get this set for FREE! Click HERE to learn more!

For this card I also used our new Watercolour Pencils. Let me tell you – these are a game changer when it comes to stamping! They can be used alone or you can use them with the Aqua Painter like I did to create a really beautiful watercolour effect. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these pencils and will be using them for the larger stamps that I’ve typically left aside because I didn’t know how I should colour them in.

I am very happy with the results of this card. In fact, I made two of them so I can send them to my twin baby cousins for their 1st birthday!

Jump on over to the Global Design Project gallery and check out all the different interpretations of the sketch…and why not take the challenge and enter your own card!

Happy Stamping!

January Paper Pumpkin

january-paper-pumpkin-blog-2

I am a little late with showing off this kit, but let me tell you, good things actually come to those who wait!

I mean, just look at how cute these treats bags are!

These are from the January Paper Pumpkin kit. If you’re unfamiliar with Paper Pumpkin, it’s a monthly crafting subscription kit that delivers creativity to your door every month. Each box includes everything you need to make a stunning project (including any ink AND adhesive!). The kits are also more than just cards (as you can see above), as it can also be projects such as cards, gift packaging, and home décor.

The best part? The kit is only $26.95/month, shipping included!

Here are some examples of past kits:youtubeth_pp_septyoutubeth_pp_octoberyoutubeth_pp_novemberdec-2016youtube-thumbnailpng

Aren’t these awesome? I mostly like how there are themed boxes for holidays. It makes it so much easier when I’m running behind on getting treats made for the kids classes or if I’m running behind on making Christmas cards!

The cool thing about the crafty Paper Pumpkin kits each month, is that often they have extra supplies so I’m always sure to use those for more craft projects later.

So the big question…are you a Paper Pumpkin subscriber?

If you are – THANK YOU!

If you are not, you have a few choices to try it out:

All subscriptions started by the 10th of the month will receive the kit for that month.

All subscribers get to purchase these PAST KITS anytime!

All kits are delivered right to your mailbox each month! Can you say Happy Mail?!

Subscriptions and kits make GREAT gifts too!

Please email or contact me with any questions.

Welcome to Stampin’ Girl.com!

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll notice that things have changed around here. And for the better I hope.

If you’re new, then welcome to Stampin’ Girl.com!

I used to be Handstamped with Love, but to be honest, have neglected that blog for a while now. While stamping, crafting, and general DIY have always been a passion of mine, it wasn’t until recently that my passion for blogging and my passion to take this business a bit further, were reignited.

You see, I am part of the “Stamp with Jenn” team, and with this, Jenn hosts quarterly meetings where we chat all things business, projects, and ideas…and of course we also get crafty. It was at this meeting where something in me just clicked. I’ve always been active with my Stampin’ Up! business; hosting events, etc., but I’m mostly only active on my Facebook page.

So as we were talking, though I can’t pinpoint the exact moment, something sparked within and I instantly had project ideas come to mind, and this included a complete rebranding of my stamping business. New name, new blog, new Facebook page, and new Instagram.

I truly love this business of mine and I love to share the joy and love crafting and stamping can bring, so with my newly rebranded Stampin’ Up! business, I hope to help you inspire and create. And who knows, maybe you’ll even join me on this journey in the future.

I do hope you follow along, so be sure to follow my blog by clicking the ‘follow me‘ bottom on the side bar. Not only will I be sharing project and card ideas, but you’ll also find crafting and DIY tutorials, and who knows, maybe even some self-love tutorials as well!

Thank you to everyone who has and continues to support my business. I truly appreciate you all.

Have A Cuppa Card Sampler

Nice Cuppa Designer Paper Cards

Guys, I am in love! With the Have A Cuppa Designer Series Paper Stack that is!

Seriously, aren’t these so cute?! This paper stack is probably one of my new faves, and you can find it on page 35 of the new 2016 Occasions Catalogue from Stampin’ Up!

I love it because all of the colours work really well together; they are so bright and cheery, and are a subtle reminder to me that Spring is, in fact, on it’s way!

Here’s a closer look at the cards with some detailed information.

Here’s To You:
This card measures 4″ x 5½”. Each designer paper is 1¼” x 5¼”. The white flag measures  1″ x 3″.

For embellishments, I used three of the Brights Candy Dots from Stampin’ Up! and a flower I already had on hand.

Nice Cuppa - Here's to You

You Are Tea-riffic:
This card measures 4¼” x 5½”. Each designer paper is 1¼” x 5¼”. The white flag measures  1″ x 3″.

For embellishments, I used three of the Brights Candy Dots from Stampin’ Up! and then I made a tea bag from vellum paper and Blushing Bride Baker’s Twine (currently on clearance for only $1.59!).

Nice Cuppa - Tea Riffic

You Are So Loved:
This super cute card (measuring 4¼” x 5½”, and now one of my favourites) was made using the Herringbone Technique. Believe it or not, this is my first card using this technique. Not too shabby if I do say so myself 🙂

Most of this card was made using leftover scrap pieces of paper; a good reason why I always save mine!

If you’re just hearing about this technique, then stay tuned! I hope to film my very first video tutorial on this technique soon!

What do you think about this paper stack? I’d love to see the cards you’re making with it. Post on Instagram and use the hashtag #handmadecuppa so I can follow along!
