An elegant washi tape Christmas


This week at Stampin' Up! Only Challenges, we are inspiring you with our projects featuring Holiday Elegance........ and I though my lovely little washi tape tree fit the bill perfectly!!  
This Washi Tape comes from the Tin of Tags Kits, and I had plently left over when I finished the tags to create a few more special projects.  
I've embellished with the gold enamel shapes, and some gold foil for the Christmas Greetings thinlits, and little gold bow at the base of the tree.  The stamping comes from Holly Jolly Greetings.

I'm on the team at SUO!

Simply create your project which features some Holiday Elegance, and add it in to our challenge using the link.  We love to see your projects!!

Love a good punch? Check out these awesome projects with CTC#107




Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop where we Copy And Share Everything to inspire you to look again at our awesome catalogues - and this week, we are sharing our favourite punch bundle in the Holiday Catalogue.  I love a good punch, and this project features the Holly Berry Builder Punch.  This punch has that lovely little bow, the berries, and 2 different sizes of the holly leaves.


I've been inspired by a combination of these two cards here!!  I've used the wreath, and added that lovely cluster of all those holly leaves.



After I created the wreath, I then mounted it over the Hearth and Home framelits and some bricks created using the brickwork embossing folder.

Now it's time for you to continue hopping around to see the amazing projects from the rest of the design team by using the following link.





And then you can add your project to our monthly challenge.

Suite Sentiments


I made a totally delicious Mango Salad last week - so delicious in fact, that I was asked for the recipe, so instead of a piece of paper, I popped it into a little recipe card!!


I CASED this idea from my dear friend Janine, who sent me this yummy strawberry card!!


This paper just looks good enough to eat!!


And here's the recipe for you too!!

Look again at those hostess sets with CTC#106


Have you looked at our Hostess Sets lately?  Sometime we get so caught up on all the fabulous NEW things, we forget to look as those little treasures hidden in the hostess pages - and they really are very special!  This week we are using these little wonders to inspire our creative challenge to CASE the Catty (Copy and Share Everything).


And, as I'm totally looking at Christmas at the moment, I chose this great little card as my springboard.  This set on page 201 of our Annual Catalogue has some gorgeous greetings for Birthday, Christmas, and any time really!  It's called appropriately Time of Year.

I've cased the card layout very closely, but changed to my (current) favourite colours of Bermuda Bay, with a touch of Island Indigo and white/silver highlights.


See that lovely spotty background there?  Did you wonder where I found this paper?  It's the 'oh so versatile' Irresistibly Floral Specialty DSP in the dotty design and sponged with Bermuda Bay to the intensity of colour that I was looking for.  

And isn't that gorgeous big greeting and font so lovely!  It  really does make this card SAY SOMETHING!!  And what else do I love about my card?  I really love the extra bling of the silver sequin trim, the little bermuda sequins shining on the holly berries, and that little corner detail on the central panel - such a simple idea, yet it looks so cool!! (and easy peasy to do with the little 1/2" circle punch on each corner)  Thank you Stampin' Up! again for your awesome inspiration in our Catalogue!!!


Now it's time for you to continue your fun Sunday night blog hop and see the fantabulous and amazing creations brought to YOU from the rest of the design team.  Make sure you hop all the way around and totally feel free to comment and join in the fun too!!  We love the conversations we have with you AND we love seeing all your creative projects too.  We are thrilled to inspire you and share with you our love of Stamping AND our great Stampin' Up! catalogues!
