KELLY'S STAMPING FRIENDS BLOG HOP


 Hello and welcome to Kelly's blog hop ! I first met this lovely young lady online when she offered to help me with some technology  issues and couldn't wait to meet her in person . Kelly is celebrating five years as a Stampin ' Up ! Demonstrator and this blog hop is her way of celebrating her journey with us all . I was flattered to be invited along for the hop . There are no rules , Kelly stipulated we were to share what makes us happy !
I have been playing with a set I've just received and it is making me very  happy so I will share a sample I created using it ! It such an easy set to use and works best with thick white card stock , but you can spritz our regular card stock and still achieve a pleasing result . I have used some new in colours as well as Bermuda Bay for this card . You can have a lot of fun using all of the different swatches and shapes in this  set . I went a little crazy and stamped the envelope as well as the inside , easy peasy ! Love !



This next card just popped into my head when I first began to play with the Lovely Laurel thinlit dies !  I couldn't wait to see how the beautiful vines would look above this swing which is in the Sitting Here set . I think it looks amazing , don't you ? I can see lots of uses for this set ! 



I created this next card for our team retreat swap this weekend ! I used our watercolour pencils to create the sunset effect , so easy just colour and then add water with your aqua painter ! When this section was dry , I stamped the sun rays , sentiment , chair and palm leaves . I really love how this card came together for me and I  hope my team love it just as much as I do !


I adore this set which is called Bright Wishes and I have created a diarama card -  perfect for this set . This card came about because of a whoopsadaisy and  the decorated outer piece also as a result of a whoops ! A boo boo that had me reaching for another two sets Wood Words and Happy Birthday Gorgeous. I was delighted to see how well the flowers in both sets matched . 



I've been having a lot of fun playing with Birthday Delivery and seeing what other ideas I could come up with for the little girl . If you saw my previous post you'd have seen her gazing in awe at a Christmas tree ! Here I have her waiting at the front door with a bunch of flowers hidden behind her back and then I have her dreaming of fairies ! The door was created with a technique shown by Carolyn Bennie where you swipe your ink pad down onto your glossy paper . The door was stamped and cut out using the At Home With You bundle.



The flourish was clear heat embossed and the background was achieved using our watercolour pencils . I have coloured the fairy and cut her out using my paper snips .



Now its time to see what the very talented and gorgeous Kristel Rimmer has created for us ! Just click the next button
