Stampin' Stars and Twinklets Blog Hop

To celebrate the start of the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue a number of the team have got their thinking caps on and joined in the blog hop that I've organised.



There are 13 (my lucky number) of us in taking part and I've put a list at the bottom of everyone and links to their blogs just in case you let lost.

You may have joined me from Fiona Harris's blog - Stamping with Fiona. Or, this may be your first port of call. Either way, welcome.

Just so you know, there are three Fiona's taking part but it's really not obligatory to be called that if you wanted to take part.

If you want to go back and check Fiona H's fabulous project again, please click on the following button.


Anyway, without further ado here are the projects that I've made. They feature the Love & Affection stamp set and also the fabulous Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper (DSP).





This first card is a drapery/curtain fold card. They are pretty easy to do once you have worked out all the measurements and I will get the tutorial for this up on the tutorial page in the next couple of days. Promise. UPDATE - it's now on the Tutorials page.

I love this pack of DSP but haven't yet got the courage to cut up the sheets with the gold foil in. In any event, the foiled sheets are single sided so would not be suitable for this effect. They are lovely though.

The second card is also a little different from the norm, but you only really notice it when the card is open. I've seen a few of this type of card on Pinterest but they are usually stamped where the cut out is. I of course decided to be a little more different.


I had to fussy cut the flower and leaves. It's not that difficult and pretty quick to do.


Details of the products I used for these cards are as follows:

  2. These are lovely Fiona, I still haven't had the courage to cut up the gold and copper ones ! These are very effective at showing off the DSP in a good light as for me I find it too fussy as 12x12, but much nicer in small portions!

    1. My mission this week is to cut it up! I'll post a photo of the project just as soon as I've wiped away the tears.

  3. I think 'Fiona' must be a particularly crafty name! I love the curtain fold, and having the fussy cut flower on the second project is a lovely adaption. Thank you for inviting us onto the blog hop, really enjoying it.
