One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop - Lay it Out

Good Day Crafty Friends,

Welcome to the One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop for June 2018. I am so super excited to be joining this team of talented Demonstrators as we share our creativity with monthly themed blog hops using Stampin' Up! products.

This month’s theme is "Lay it Out". Yay!! Something a little different and fun. I totally enjoyed this challenge as I don't often create Page Layouts, and ended up going a little overboard with two colour themed projects. While I had everything out it was easier to create two sets, also just incase I boo booed one,  there was a back up project lol.

There are literally so many stunning suites in the new Annual Catalogue, I have to admit I felt spoilt for choice when choosing what items to use for this challenge. As mentioned earlier, I have made a few sets - A Page Layout with matching card.

The first Page and Card use the bright and fun, Pineapple Punch teamed with Black & White. I have used a variety of stamps along with Archival Black & Pineapple Punch inks. A portion of both the Page and Card have also been lightly sponged.

Its a very eclectic design created using a mix of stamps inked in Black Archival ink: Tabs for Everything, Artisan Textures, Timeless Textures, Rooted in Nature, Pick a Pennant and Stitched All Around.

And a mix of die cuts created using: Stitched Labels Framelits, Petal Palette Thinlits, Stitched Shapes Framelits.

The second set also includes a layout and matching card. This time swapping out the Pineapple Punch for Lemon Lime Twist - even though the photo's really do not do the LLT any justice.

I have used almost the same stamp sets from the first project, swapping out a few from Timeless Textures and adding extra images from the Accented Blooms.  The first layout has been stamped in a "t" pattern, the second in a "c" shape starting and ending on the right hand side. Don't be afraid to stamp over previously stamped images for added depth. The wavey image stamp from Artisan Textures was great for this technique and used heavily on this set.

No DSP was harmed in the making of these projects lol. For those that follow my work/blog, will know I am not a big user of DSP and will always try to find a way to complete challenges with just stamps, ink and matching card. However, I did just order three packs of stunning DSP from the new catalogue, so time will tell if I can use it or will struggle like usual and start a DSP collection in a dedicated corner of my crafty space.
