This week's Your Creative Connection theme is YOUR FAVOURITE DSP. Choosing my favourite designer series paper was a hard ask as I have many! I narrowed it down to two, one from each of the annual catalogues: Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper from the upcoming 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue and Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper from the current 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue.
I have been creating using the gorgeous new Ornate Garden Suite, which is an early product release from the upcoming 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue. The products I love the most from this suite are the Ornate Thanks stamp set with a coordinating Ornate Borders Dies, plus the fabulous Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper. I have used these products to create this thank you card...
Once a holiday like Valentine's Day, Easter, or Christmas, is done and dusted, we will often put aside the stamps and designer paper that was devised for those occasions. I want to challenge you to use those holiday-specific products throughout the year too! For example, this masculine birthday card was inspired by the stunning stripes found in the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper, a set of patterned papers designed specifically for Valentine's Day.
This week's Your Creative Connection theme is A RAINBOW FOR YOU. I had trouble figuring out the best way to include all the colours of a rainbow on one project without it looking over-the-top. So instead, I created two cards that, combined, cover the spectrum of colours from Real Red to Night of Navy!
Through Stampin’ Up!, I was fortunate to earn the Mediterranean Incentive Trip in May 2016. It was our first-ever trip to Europe and the furthest we had ever travelled, so Stephen and I decided to extend our holiday to include a week in Paris, in spring! The Parisian Blossoms Suite was the perfect choice to capture our memories of Paris.
