“Stampin Stars” 2014 Autumn/Winter Catalogue Blog Hop

I can’t believe I am taking part in my second blog hop, in such a short time. If you have come here from Fiona Whitten welcome to my blog.

After the amazing launch of the new catalogue I wasn’t expecting the ‘New Autumn/Winter Catalogue’ to have such a big impact; but I was mistaken! It was a big WOW!!! from me. There was so many things that I wanted/needed, “just had to have it now”…..so tell me ….Who can control themselves when there are soooo many lovely things to look at……I mean….look at the new ‘Holiday Home Bundle’ who wouldn’t want it…it’s so versatile…. Christmas, Halloween, new home and I am sure there are plenty of other projects you can come up with.

My head was buzzing with so many new ideas, I didn’t know which to start first. Today I have a couple of projects for you to see, firstly I will start off with something quick and simple. I know a lot of you have been making these block cards, and why not they are easy to make and they give a big WOW! when you see them.

Anyway let me show you one of my project’s for this blog hop, I had so much fun making this card, and I even managed to use my blendabillities, so love these pens, and look I even managed to cut out Santa and his sleigh.


This is a smaller version of the block card, than previous ones I have made, ideal for bulk making your Christmas cards. The papers I used are from the ‘Trim the tree’ paper stack and my absolutely favourite card stock ‘Cherry Cobbler’ . These card stacks are so versatile and take up hardly any storage space….that means more room for other goodies 🙂 Below you will see the box and the tag to match the card…..can you see the 3d tree on the box…..so cute.


Now on to my next project for this blog….This is another bundle which was definitely a must have…..Bright & Beautiful bundle.


This card and star box is made with very vanilla card stock,  gold glimmer paper and gold stampin ‘Glitter’ embossing powder. Simple yet stunning. This is a really simple card to make and the box once I got my head round it was very easy to put together. To be able to get a box with a lift off lid you will need to score your strips with a 1/8 in difference, when sticking the smaller of the 2 you need to stick just in of the edge.


I used the Labels framelits to cut the greeting out, I cut the bottom off as it would have covered most of my star.

Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope that I have given you some ideas for using these fabulous products.

Your next blog to visit will be to the wonderful Pip Todman.
