Joy & Peace Colour Challenge

Hello and Welcome to our colour challenge!

This is a great colour challenge featuring gorgeous images and Stampin' Up! colours.  

The colours this week, worked perfectly for the Night Divine bundle and the gorgeous coordinating papers.  

I've used a Very Vanilla card base, and die cut the Night Divine silhouette dies for the front image. 

I used inks and water painters to add colour to the die cut nativity scene with varying tones of the challenge colours - I also added a couple of extra lines using Stampin' Write Markers.  

The stable die was enhanced using Grey Granite and a blending brush to show off the gorgeous texture on the die.  

For the greeting at the top, I rolled up a piece of Vanilla on each side of the stamped greeting.  I've also added extra colour using a blending brush.  

Inside the card also features some of the wonderful paper, and a stamped greeting with blending brush added detail.

It's all about Autumn CTC#438

Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop CASEING the CATTY.

To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit and we love to CASE from our amazing Stampin' Up! catalogues.  

This week we are sharing inspiration from the gorgeous Autumn Suite - which I really love!!

Can you see where my inspiration comes from?  I  created a simple card that only uses stamping.

The base level is some gorgeous new paper available online - it's the Tartan Foil and comes in  Lost Lagoon, Copper Clay and Pebbled Path and looks great for all sorts of projects!!

The leaves are stamped using Lost Lagoon, Copper Clay, Petal Pink and Lemon Lolly with Lemon Lolly ribbon to finish off the card.  

Inside is some more simple stamping.

Scrapbooking Blog Hop - transport theme!

Hello and Welcome to our Monthly Scrapbooking Blog Hop!!  

This is an amazing International group sharing fantastic Scrapbooking Inspiration featuring Stampin' Up! products.  

This month, the challenge is Mode of Transport - a perfect theme for all the holiday makers!!  

AND, for this little scrapbooker, the only mode of transport I could think of was WALKING!!  We do a lot of bushwalking so I knew there was lots that I could use for my pages.  We recently went on a camping trip to the Bunya Mountains where we did a lot of bushwalking.  It's our first time there and we had a really great time.

The lovely A Walk in the Forest paper worked perfectly for my page AND it's a wonderful fundraising paper.  In Australia, the fundraiser is for the Anglicare Tots and Toys - every pack sold gives $4.25 to the charity - how amazing is that!!  

I've also had a great time using the lovely Merriest Trees bundle for some sweet trees stamped in the background AND for the die cut trees from the A Walk in the Forest paper which coordinates perfectly.  I also love the tag die which is part of the Merriest Trees set too.  

And Alphabets are FANTASTIC for scrapbooking too!  Here I've used the Alphabest set and the Alphabet A La Mode dies together. 

AND you absolutely MUST use adhesive sheet on these dies to help them stick perfectly!!  

As you can see I ended up having enough photos to make a double spread!!  

Make sure you keep hopping to see lots of amazing inspiration!!   

It's all about the walking scrapbook page
