Country Home, Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop


The Artisan Design Team is here with our official Stampin' Up! October blog hop! We are featuring the Country Lane Suite from the newly released holiday catalogue (that's page 43 for those playing along at home).  I've combined these with the Bakers Boxes, also in the holiday catalogue.  You must check these out if you haven't already!  So great for gift giving.


The farmhouse decorating trend is so in right now, wherever you live!  We are renovating our home at the moment and are just loving adding touches of country comfort into each space.  It's so nice to see Stampin' Up! choose to incorporate the trend in this gorgeous product suite.  This Tin Tile Embossing Folder is to die for! I used an aqua painter to brush over a little copper shimmer paint for the shiny metallic finish.


Our Stampin' Blend markers are perfect for colouring these florals.  I couldn't resist playing around with a few colour combinations - do you have one you like best?

Sincerely Santa Tag Kit, Crafty Carrot Co Blog Hop


It is now the perfect time of year to create something special together with friends!  No matter how experienced you are at crafting, putting together beautiful Christmas projects is easy with the Sincerely Santa Tag kit.


This kit, from the current Holiday Catalogue, comes in a gorgeous candy striped tin and includes 30 printed tags: 6 each of 5 designs, and all the embellishments you need to give your presents in style this year.


Whilst the included tag 'recipes' for this project kit are super pretty, here at the Crafty Carrot Co we are gearing up for a month-long series of classes to give you inspiration for new ways to use these festive elements.



For our Crafty Carrot blog hop today, I decided to share an idea for mixing up the tag elements and using them to create quick and easy Christmas cards.


We have recommended the coordinating Sincerely Santa Stamp set to pair with this kit. As with all our programs, however, when you subscribe to the Crafty Carrot we know you'll get a lot out of the classes even if you don't have the focus products on hand! As you can see from my projects here today, I've mixed in a few stamped elements from other current Christmas sets such as the Hearts Come Home sentiments you might spy here.



If you live in the Bendigo area, I will be offering these projects as a class on Sunday November 4th.
More details will be released over the next week on my facebook page! Stay tuned *HERE*!

Happiness Surrounds, Artisan Design Team Blog Hop


The Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team are introducing the "Snowflake Showcase" promotion today.  This is an exclusive set of products that are available for a limited time only.

For this first design, I matched the medallion from the Happiness Surrounds stamp set with my favourite grey stone Petal Promenade paper for a simple but pretty background.  Then I added a few layers - a strip of pink Nature's Poem paper, a flirty flamingo stamped flower and the sentiment in these same two pink tones.

The floral Snowflake Trinket from this promotion lends an instant 'wow' factor to the project.  I've complimented this with a few additional rhinestones to finish.

Whilst this first design can be made with the stamps alone, my second project kicks things up a notch with the addition of the exclusive Snowfall thinlets.


This 'pocket card' also features a grey and pink colour scheme, with a little extra pop of pool party.  Here I've gone with a basic grey base, heat embossed with that pretty medallion.  Then I've added a little soft sponging in whisper white ink before adding a scatter of die cut pieces in the same grey tone.

The sentiment is silver heat embossed on vellum and is anchored by layered Snowfall die elements that all sit upon a piece of stone grey patterned paper punched with the Everyday Label Punch.


Loving these 'Snowfall Showcase' goodies so far?  Fellow demonstrators can preorder all the exclusive products in this promotion throughout October.  Customers will have to be patient, mark your diary and plan to pick up yours this November!
