Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stampers Anonymous SU blog tour! Tonight we are delighted to show you projects using products from the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalogue.

You may have just come from Kerry Bunting's blog but if you are starting here, don’t worry … you can make the complete tour just by following the links at the end of each post. There are 14 stops along the way and please feel free to leave some comment love along the way …
At the end of each post there will be a link to take you to the next stop on the tour.
So grab a hot choc, scroll down, click on and enjoy!

I've started with two of my favourites sets from the new catty. The 'Woodgrain' background stamp - isn't it just fantastic? I can see this being very useful - especially for cards for the men. I stamped it in Chocolate Chip ink on Soft Suede cardstock.
 Then  I've stamped the sentiment from 'Sparkly & Bright', the cute new Christmas Stamp set, on a piece of Old Olive cardstock in Chocolate Chip and the background sparkle stamp in Old Olive. Then using my 2way Glue pen sparkled it up with some Olive Fine Supernova glitter. I stamped the reindeer in Chocolate Chip and coloured the nose with my Real Red marker and getting out my 2way glue pen again covered Mr Reindeer in Chocolate  Fine Supernova. Well with a name of 'Sparkly and Bright'  it is just asking for glitter right!?!

I punched him out with my 1 3/4" circle punch and then layered 2 round tabs in Real Red behind.
Easy really!

Next I wanted to try a fun card that the boys would love. I've kept with Sparkly & Bright and made a viewfinder card. When you turn the white (and sparkly) tabs the different images from the stamp set rotate.
We start with Mr Claus himself.

I've used a Build-a-Brad as the splitpin that holds it all together and allows the white piece to turn. Santa's face just fit perfectly in the circle for the Brad.

Next we have the stocking

the tree

Mr Reindeer again

Hope you've enjoyed my rather Christmas focused efforts!

Big Deal and Outlined alphabets farewell

I am so sad to see these alphabets go - last day to get them! They are so versatile and have served me well and will continue to to I know! My nieces in QLD recently had birthdays and I had these Pukka Notepads put aside for them so sat down with another niece to create personalised covers for them.

I just love Stampin' Up!'s Manhattan Rose Embossing folder for the Big Shot. It is just so completely elegant and easy and quick - a winning combination. I used the Outline alphabet for Eliza-Jane's one and finished it off with the Build-A-Brad using a flower from the 'Always' stamp set. Colours Baja Breeze and Regal Rose.


Then for Tianna's I wanted a brighter, bolder more fun look so used the Big Deal alphabet and Polka Dot Embossing Folder in the Big Shot.
I stamped her name in yellow first then filled them with the small flowers from the Cottage Garden stamp set in Rose Red and Baja Breeze. 

I then stamped the name again in Versamark over the top roughly and embossed with clear embossing powder. Using my brayer I rolled Rich Razzleberry all over the and wiped the excess off the letters to reveal the flowery name - cute!   And finished with a Build-A-Brad using another flower from Cottage Garden in Baja Breeze. Colours Rose Red, So Saffron, Baja Breeze and Rich Razzleberry.
I'm loving the Build-A-Brads - they are lots of fun to use.
Come back at 9pm tonight to do a tour of the new catalogue with our team Blog Hop.

Animal Crackers is one of the cute stamp sets leaving us on the Last Chance list. How cute is this little giraffe - hard to go past! 
I had fun with the scraps from my DS papers. I think this might have 2 different types on it. Urban Oasis is the green and Windsor Knot is the brown and yellow striped pieces. I just outlined the giraffe with markers to give colour to the image.
Animal Crackers $34.95
 Urban Garden DS paper is a crazy 50% OFF at $8.48
Windsor Knot is 25% OFF at  $12.71

Together Forever

This gorgeous stamp set is soon to be gone forever. Together Forever is a beautiful set useful for engagement and wedding invitations, cards, albums and 3d projects.

This was the card I made for a recent wedding we went to. 
It was a beautiful Italian wedding full of fun.

I love the cute Rhinestone brads - the colour of this hasn't come up right in the photo but it matched the flower beautifully.
If you love this set make sure you place your order before tomorrow night to get it as it's on the Last Chance List!
ETA: Colours used Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive, Whisper White, Basic Black

fresh cut notes

These gorgeous Fresh Cuts Note cards are continuing the in new Stampin' Up! catalogue but this absolutely beautiful Cottage Wall DS paper isn't sadly. These note card are so easy to use and make such delicious cards so quickly. I've stamped and cut out a flower from the Cottage Garden stamp set and layered it over the middle of the flower and then pushed a Filigree brad and Rhinestone brad through the middle.With matching envelopes don't they look great.

chalkboard technique

  The chalkboard technique is always such a wow! 
Such a beautiful effect and I think this 'Medallion' stamp (currently in the Stampin' Up! Autumn Winter Mini catalogue) is made for this technique.
We are doing these two cards at my class this Friday night 20th. Email me to book in.

Sesame Street Scallop Circle Die cards

At my recent Mums and Kids class we did these Sesame Street cards. It was a fun afternoon - particularly for the parents! It was good to break out Stampin' Up's! scallop circle die for the Big Shot and so easy to make these card bases.
I've seen quite a few of these around on the net in various forms so cannot quote a specific source of inspiration except to say I did study the Sesame Street website to try and get it as close as possible. For those fans I admit that I got it wrong with Big Bird. I don't know how I missed that he has pink eyelids and turquoise eye lashes.I shall be back with close-ups and a "made over" Big Bird!
