New at SU Blog Hop – Feeling Festive

Hello and welcome to our New at SU Blog Hop for October. We are feeling festive and for us in the Southern Hemisphere it’s halfway through Spring which means not long for Christmas. So I’ve created some projects with Christmas festivities in mind.

New at SU Blog Hop, Header

I used the largest die in the Celebration Labels to cut out the card base. Then I scored it in half to form a note card. These note cards would make great little greeting cards or they could be used as a cute gift card to accompany a lovely Christmas present.

Using the next size in the dies to cut the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper. I’ve been using these papers so much as I love the mix of colours in it. During October, you can order the Plaid Tidings DSP and a range of other papers at 15% off. See the full list here.

I decorated the note cards with elements from the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Card Pack, even using the sentiments from it. Memories & More Cards offer a quick and easy creative alternative. You can use it for scrapbooking, cardmaking, decorating 3D projects, home decor – anything really. They come in a variety of card sizes, specialty cards (in some cases) and sticker sheets.

Make a batch of these note cards and decorate them for various occasions using the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Card Pack. With images, sentiments and stickers to cover a variety of occasions you will be able to get several of these made in no time. Bundle a few of these together to make a great Christmas present.

Stamp ‘n Hop Blog Hop – Favourite DSP

What a cracker of a theme for this month’s Stamp ‘n Hop Blog Hop. We are using our favourite DSP on our projects. With a fantastic sale on during October on a range of our Designer Series Paper, you will be wanting to grab a bargain once you’re through with our hop today.

Stamp 'n Hop October 2020, Favourite DSP

So what is DSP? It’s Stampin’ Up! lingo for patterned paper and stands for Designer Series Paper. Our Designer Series Paper range is double-sided to give you more choice and it’s a nice thicker paper which allows you more creative possibilities.

There are so many beautiful papers and it’s always a difficult decision to make as to which one is my favourite. So, I chose one that has recently caught my eye. I must tell you that when I first saw the Plaid Tidings DSP in the Mini Holiday Catalogue, it didn’t really grab me but when I got it in my hands it was an entirely different story. I love the different colour combinations that are available making it really easy to create projects for a number of occasions. There’s bright colours, muted tones and even black and white which gives you lots of creative possibilities.

Plaid Tidings DSP

Today, I have paired the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper with the Press On stamp set. This is a fun stamp set with cute images and sentiments which are great for coffee lovers however it could be easily adapted to hold a hot chocolate!

This sheet of paper really pulled towards the Oranges but I just thought I’d give Old Olive a try. I love how, together with the Granny Apple Green cup, it really brought out the colour of the DSP. The black circle has been punched from the Magic in this Night DSP.

I’ve kept my cards simple in layout to let the colours of the paper really show through. This next card has a colour combination of Melon Mambo, Merry Merlot and Daffodil Delight. I’m loving the bright colours of this plaid sheet. Some simple colouring highlights the stamped image.

Another great sheet from this pack, in Pretty Peacock. The sentiment is a separate stamp so you can add that on any cup. I stamped ribbon with Cinnamon Cider coffee beans for a custom look.

Just think of all the possibilities with stamped ribbons!
