The INKreators Blog Hop- One Sheet Wonder

13661971_10154225877170991_5659845011330594848_o

We’re back for another INKreators Blog Hop and rather than showcasing particular stamps or product we’ll using a technique – One Sheet Wonder.

If you’re already on the hop then you’ve arrived here from LoveLifeLauren and I’m sue she had something wonderful to inspire you.  If you’ve started here then welcome I hope you enjoy today’s showcase.

With this technique we had the option to either use DSP or make our own – I chose to make my own background paper using this month’s new exclusive and limited time bundle Thoughtful Branches.

I’ve used the single leaf and I think it’s a small branch, a bit like holly berries, and a sheet of A4 vanilla cardstock to make my own DSP.  The leaf was stamped in Wild Wasabi ink and the branch in Real Red.   Now I got a bit ahead of myself and chopped up my stamped background before I photographed it but here is a small piece I had left over.  You should still be able to get an idea of what the whole piece looked like.

From there it was just a matter of cutting up the sheet to fit my cards.

My first two cards feature some more stamps from the Thoughtful Branches stamp set.  There are a total of 23 stamps in this set with a great mix of images and sentiments.  It also lends itself well to Christmas projects with some great tree images and those cute little birds.

For my third project I decided on a Z fold card.  These are incredibly popular right now, I’ve been seeing them all over the Pinterest.  The stamp set is a new hostess set from the Annual Catalogue called Time of Year.

Once again thanks for stopping by and make sure you hop on over to Liv Ingle to see what great projects she has to created for you this month.

Inkreations Blog Hop – the new Occasions catalogue

INKreations Blog Hop-007

Happy New Year and welcome to the first Inkreations blog hop for 2016.  I hope you all had a wonderful festive season and spent some quality time with family and friends.  Hopefully you got a chance to recharge your batteries ready for a new year – and sneak in some crafting as well.

Today we are featuring some of our favourites from the new Occasions catalogue.  I say “some” because there are so many fantastic products its impossible to pick just one I like best.

For those of you arriving from LoveLifeLauren  how gorgeous were those cards.  I sooooo love stamp sets with coordinating punches.

So what did I choose – well I settled in the end for the Love Blossoms suite.  I figured with Valentines day almost upon us it would be the perfect opportunity to create for that special someone.

I love how easily the stamp set coordinates with the patterned paper but that’s not surprising it’s one of the things I love most about Stampin’ Up! products; matchy matchy!

So first up is the card featuring the main sentiment from the set.

Now I don;t mind fussy cutting but for those of you who hate it the Bloomin’ Heart thinlit die makes cutting those small flowers ever so easy.

The blushing bride ribbon is from the Love Blossoms embellishment kit and finishes off that empty space at the base of the card perfectly.

Next up is little box just big enough for a few chocolates – if you’re anything like me you made the annual resolution to eat less chocolate this year so this will work for you.

These self closing boxes are really popular right now, you’ll find them all over Pinterest.  A quick google search will bring up heaps of instructions so I won’t bore you with the details here.  The cute little hear under the “it’s in the air” banner features the gorgeous new blushing bride glimmer paper.  This is sure to be a favourite and should go straight on your wish list.

Thats’s it from me today.  I hope you’ve found a little inspiration in these projects but don’t stop here head on over to Inkreations – I know the lovely Liv Ingle has some great projects for you.
