CHRISTMAS CARD LOVE FOR 2020!

I wanted to share the Christmas cards I have received from lovely family and friends this Christmas. It’s so lovely to be thought of. Whether they are handmade or shop bought it’s so nice.

Since we are all about handmade cards here I thought I would share those ones with you.

I am sure there is some inspiration among them for you.

Hope you enjoyed your Christmas. I’m starting to play with lots of new products which is so fun. I will share soon.

DOVE OF HOPE CHRISTMAS DECORATION!

I wanted to share this project with you today. This was a bonus project for our class last week. I saw these gorgeous Christmas decorations on Pinterest -> HERE.

I changed it up a bit. Rather than using the Gold Hoops I cut 2 circles from Gold Foil cutting the centre out of them too. Then layered them back to back. It still works well. I added some Vellum behind the wings and tail to add a little softness.

I think everyone liked it. I like how it is hanging in our Christmas tree. 🙂

Happy Christmas to you. I hope you have a wonderful, festive time and remembering the wonderful gift of peace and hope we have been given.

This card is a Triangle Easel card. I have made a number of them over the years. They are really easy to make. I am using the Dove of Hope stamps and Dies. I am so sad these are leaving us.

3D projects, Catalogues, Onstage, Stampin' Up!

ONSTAGE @ HOME TEAM DAY!

Last weekend was the Stampin’ Up! Onstage event @ Home. It was sad not to meet together but a few from my team got together which was a lot of fun.

It was lovely of Sarah to open her home up to us and we could watch the big TV screen together with all the sessions and chat about them. There is always lots of ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’. 🙂

We had a card display and I made up some gifts for my team.

Here are the little gifts. I included a Stampin’ Up! file folder with some Stampin’ Up! hand-outs, a clipboard (great for all those sessions notes), and I made up a little pack with a highlighter, sticky notes and a Stampin’ Up! magnet. These were all gifted in past Stampin’ Up! convention bags.

These were little table gifts for the tables. I made them up using some retired pillow boxes and decorated them with the new Dandy Garden suite. These are some gorgeous new products coming in the 2021 Occasions Catalogue starting in January. I thought this sentiment was good as we start out on a new Stampin’ Up! year.

Of course one needs to be hydrated at these events so I made up some bottle tags using the cute Zany Zebras.

Just some of the name tags. Sarah created these which were great!

And then you must have Prize Patrol right. We had drawings over the 2 days for some fun prizes. And that was in addition to the Stampin’ Up! giveaways over the weekend.

Some card displays with the Curvy Celebrations and the Curvy Christmas stamp set, the Dove of Hope and a few other stamp sets.

The Dandy Garden Suite. I will share closer views of the cards over the next couple of weeks and months. I think you will love this suite.

The Poinsettia Petals card samples created by Sarah.

Getting some creating going on with the Dandy Garden project. I will share those with you very soon.

Recognition was announced. I was so pleased to achieve Sales and Team Building Recognition for this past year. Thank you to you all for your support and encouragement and Thank You to my wonderful team.

Thank you to you all for your support and encouragement whether you order from me or cheer for me from near and far. I appreciate you. Thanks for visiting my blog. And of course Thank You to my wonderful team.

If you would love to be a part of these fun get togethers then I would love to welcome you to my JEN’s INK team. I go on about the discount a lot but really being with Stampin’ Up! means a lot more. It’s connecting with so many “crazy” people like you who get excited about stamps and ink. You can find out more on my page HERE of 9 Reasons why you need to join the Stampin’ Up! Family.

Keep creating,

TEAM DAY SWAPS!

Last week we had a Team Recognition Day for the Inky Fingers Team I am in. It was a lovely day of creating together especially as we hadn’t been able to meet together for so long. We chatted and created and were recognised for our achievements this year.

This was all the lovelies in our team who attended the day.

Clare our DDM (Demonstrator Manager for Australia) was there. It is always so lovely to see her bubbly self. 🙂 This is also with Sarah one of my team members who came along too. It was so great to share that with her.

Vanessa our team leader gave some of us a little gift. There were particular requirements to attend the day and those who achieved the requirements TWICE received this gift box with some special ribbon and embellishments. I was so honoured to receive one.

The boxes are the Mini Paper Pumpkin boxes. Isn’t it gorgeous!

Below are the swaps I received. I didn’t make any swaps. We only found out the day before and I really didn’t have time to get anything together but people were so lovely to share some of their swaps with me.

This is a little bar of soap in the little cellophane bags. It is a lovely idea instead of chocolate.

This one is created with the Dove of Hope stamp set with the World Map Dies. I love how these co-ordinate together.

This is a little treat bag. Another lovely gift. It’s a great size for a mini chocolate.

This card below was created by my friend Leonie. It’s the cutest mini Pop-Up card using the Warm and Toasty stamp set. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Christmas.

The little tree inside is from the Most Wonderful Time stamp set.

Stop by tomorrow and I will share the cutest little gift box and mini cards we made as our projects.

Have a great day,

Jenny

TIS THE SEASON DOVE!

I’ve told you how much I love the Dove of Hope Bundle right … 🙂  It’s a gorgeous set.

I have shared a few cards already.  This one uses the Tis The Season Designer Series Paper. 

It’s simple in design but the dove is heat embossed in Gold and diecut.  Great to have the matching Detailed Dove Dies.  The gorgeous Real Red Sheer Ribbon is beautiful and soft and so easy to tie bows.  The ribbon was wrapped around the card mat and paper piece before adhering it to the Garden Green card base. 

Here is the beautiful Dove of Hope stamp set.  What do you think?? Are you liking it??

In Australia?  It is now available in my store -> HERE.  

Please use the Host Code:26MVE4MV  I appreciate each and every order.  Thank You. Be sure you don’t mark it anonymous when you order or I can’t send out you a little Thank You.

If you would rather me add the order for you please phone me on 0439 844574 or email jghayward@yahoo.com

Have a great weekend and keep on crafting!!

Blog Hops, cards, Catalogues, Christmas

CHRISTMAS IN JULY BLOG HOP!

Today I am hopping along for Christmas in July with a great group of crafters.  There is some amazing talent in this group and I am honoured to be joining in.

For the Blog Hop we are featuring products from the new Holiday Catalogue beginning on August 4th.  I am excited to start creating with these products.  I know we may not feel too much like Christmas yet but once you start creating with these fantastic products you will quickly get in the mood.

For the Blog Hop today I am using the Dove Of Hope Bundle which has the gorgeous stamp set and dies.  I made 2 projects to share with you today.

The first card is a more simple design.  The dove is diecut with Whisper White card and it really shows off the crispness of the dove as well as the little embossed details.  Don’t you love the detail in the wings??

To complete the card I used a piece of the ‘Tis the Season Designer Series Paper adhered on to a Real Red card mat.  The leaves were stamped over the Garden Green card base in Garden Green ink.  For the sentiment it was stamped in black on to white card and then punched with the Timeless Label Punch. 

The next card is a stepped up version.

The red card mat was diecut with one of the Ornate Layers Dies with piece of the ‘Tis the Season Designer Series Paper added.

On this dove I diecut it with some of the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper.  This paper is gorgeous and has flocked designs on vellum There are 3 different designs in the pack.  I went for this “flourish” style.  I wasn’t sure how it would work.  I did find that some of the flocked pattern was flattened but you still get the pattern on the dove.

The sentiment this time was heat embossed in gold on to white card and punched with the Timeless Label Punch.  To add a little extra shine I cut a small strip of Gold Foil and flagged the end to go under the sentiment.

Now you are off to continue your Hop.  I hope the links work for you. 🙂
