Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop. Tonight we are excited to show you some projects made with products that we as demonstrators were able to purchase as a sneak peek to the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalogue.

You may have come from Fiona Harvey's Blog, but if you are starting here don't worry you can make the complete  tour just by following the links at the end of each post. There are 14 stops along the way and we hope you will visit each one and see the wonderful creations we have to show you. Please feel free to leave comments too - we love comments!!!

So grab a cuppa , sit back and enjoy.

Tonight I am going to show you just a couple of projects. Since I broke my ankle I have not had much inspiration but I am hoping that it is back... When we got the sneak peek brochure there were a couple of sets that jumped right out at me and I am going to showcase "Contempo Christmas" and "For You Flower".

Contempo Christmas is available in both wood and clear mount. It is a set of 4 stamps and is very reasonably priced at $26.95 (for wood). As it is contemporary in name and appearance I decided to not use the traditional Christmas colours but to use Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery.

Here is the first card

I just love this tree - you can also colour it using your Stampin' Write markers to give it a different look.

Next is a card made with the Ornament.

I can tell you that we will be getting the much coveted Ornament Punch in the new Idea Book and Catalogue however they are not too difficult to cut out. I apologise that the sentiment has not come out as well as I had hoped but it says "Christmas is Love with all the Trimmings".

And finally with this set I have made a couple of Christmas Bon Bon's. Now these Bon Bons are really easy to make and you can find a great video on Dawns Stamping Thoughts.

These are really cute and easy to make and will hold a lot in them.

Materials Used (all Stampin' Up!)
Stamps: Contempo Christmas, So Swirly Jumbo Wheel
Ink: Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink
Paper: Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
Other: Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Dimensionals, Large Oval Punch, Clear Rhinestone Brads, 1/4" Certainly Celery Grosgrain Ribbon,  Scallop Edge Punch.

My final offering to you is using the A La Carte Stamp "For you Flower". I really love how Stampin' Up! have included these in the new Idea Book and Catalogue. It means that if you new to stamping or don't have a lot of money to spend you can get a great single stamp that will probably start your addiction!!!!

Now these Stamp co-ordinates beautifully with the new Fancy Flower Punch and I have a feeling that I will be using that Punch a lot in future. I must admit that the large card has a sneak peak of another stamp set that if you come back tomorrow you will see in the ESAD blog hop.

Materials Used:
Stamps: For You Flower, Sweetheart
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive
Paper: Crumbcake, Whisper White, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry
Other: Fancy Flower Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Dimensionals, Polka Dot Embossing Folder, 1/4" Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, 1/4" Whisper White Ribbon.

I do hope you like my creations. It is now time to hop off and see the wonderful creations of Kerry Bunting.

Love your contemporary take on the traditional colours Juliette, they look great. This set is one I am sorely tempted to add to my wish list. Great projects.

Kirrily said...

The pink and green is such a lovely alternative for Christmas - very sweet.

I really like the colour combo for the Christmas ideas.They really well and who says we have to be traditional. The For You Flower stamp set I really like also. I think I will have to get it also.
