Hello! Welcome to the September edition of our team blog hop.
I can’t wait for you to see what our Paper Adventures team have created for you this month. You may have joined me from Kim Oliver’s blog – thanks to Kim for being our amazing guest designer this month. There’s 7 stops today – 5 blogs and 2 Facebook pages. See below for the full list of participants.
The theme for today’s hop is “CAS” or Clean & Simple. Of course, everyone has their own definition of what makes a card clean & simple, but I like to think of it as a card that isn’t too fussy. Clean lines, straight edges, lots of white space and not too many embellishments.
Some people utilise this style really well, but it’s probably not my natural style. I do love my embellishments!
Every catalogue I buy the stamp set or bundle that everyone is raving about, but isn’t an instant love for me. I love being enabled by other people’s creativity. For the 2018 Holiday Catalogue, my enabled purchase was the Country Home stamp set.
This is my CAS creation…
The background is the Tin Tile embossing folder. Like so many of the embossing folders in the catalogues, they truly come to life when you see them used.
I’ve added the doily as a pop of colour against my white space.
The flowers are coloured with some of the new Stampin’ Blends available in the Holiday Catalogue (Light Real Red, Light & Dark Blackberry Bliss, Light Shaded Spruce, Dark Mint Macaron*) and the cotton flowers have been shimmered using the new (or returning – depending on how long you’ve loved SU! for!) Frost White Shimmer Paint.
*Mint Macaron is a colour shown in the Annual Catalogue.
Thank you for joining us for our Clean & Simple hop. Keep hopping to see what my talented teamie Mandy Depiazzi has created.
What are your weekend plans? It’s a long weekend here in Western Australia – I’m hoping for good sleep, lots of sunshine and some stamping.
I hope wherever you are in the world, your weekend is full of happiness and amazing weather!!!
