Hopping Along on a Stamp With Us Sunday

Or should that be Stamp a ma jig Sunday?

Before I explain all that I would like to welcome those of you who have joined us as part of the New Stampin' Up! Colours Blog hop.  Its lovely to see you here. Please feel free to take a moment and make yourself right at home. Oh and be sure to read to the end as there are two chances for you to win a prize...

Did you enjoy the lovely projects shared by the equally lovely Peg?

If you have been following my blog for a while you will know that Stampin' Up! are renovating their colour range and that we have just got our hands on some of the new colours.  You will also know I am loving using these new colours and as you will find as you follow the blog hop I am not alone! The Demo's who are participating in the hop are all very talented so grab a cuppa and hop around and see what you can find to inspire you.

Today is also the day a new challenge is launched at Stamp With Us and this challenge is a themed challenge and the theme is Get Well.  When you see my card you will know why I am calling it Stamp a ma jig Sunday!

This card has been brewing for a long time and the new colours were just the kick start I needed to get on and actually take the idea from my head and onto a card.

The pattern is made from one of the Stamps in the wonderful Framed With Love Stamp Set in the Mini Catalogue.  Each image was positioned using my favourite tool the Stamp a ma jig.  The bottom rows were stamped in the scrummy Rich Razzleberry, for the middle row I inked the stamp in the beautiful Melon Mambo and the rolled the bottom of the image in Rich Razzleberry, before stamping the top rows in Melon Mambo. 

Everything was then mounted on a layer of Rich Razzleberry.  Next I stamped the sentiment from Sincere Salutations inside a frame from Frames with Flourishes. This was mounted on Rich Razzleberry and then holes were punches in each end.  Some of the gorgeous White Satin Ribbon was threaded through and tied in a bow round the card before mounting the whole thing on a Melon Mambo base with Stampin' Dimensionals.

One of the images from Tiny Tags reminds me of the image I have used on this card so, with more help from my Stamp a ma jig, I stamped a row of these cute little flourishes along the bottom of the insert of my card.

Now, I dont't know about you but when someone is ill I think they also deserve a little something to cheer them up, so I made a matching gift box to go with the card.  More Stamp a ma jigged rows of images in Rich Razzleberry decorate this Melon Mambo box.  You could put any gift you like in the box but I made it just the right size for a packet of tissues.

Now I mentioned something about a prize ... Well you may have noticed I love my Stamp a ma jig and this month members of my Customer Club have the chance to win one - all they have to do is place an order with me and they get one entry to a pize draw for every £10 they spend (before post and packing).  If you want to join them, and you are in the UK, contact me to place an order.   If you want to try all the new colours, and I have not even shown you the scrummy Soft Suede today, I am able to offer you some special sample packs gving you the chance to try them all - you can see them here.

And it's not just members of my Customer Club who can win a prize with this blog hop.  You can win a selection of card in each of the new colours and a length of each of the matching polka dot ribbons.  You can see them all here.  All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning this prize is to leave a comment on this post.  I will draw one winner at random next Sunday.  So make sure you leave a comment before continuing on to the next step of the blog hop.

Next stop on the blog hop is the lovely Theresa, creator of some very stylish projects so hop on over to her blog and enjoy the rest of the hop.
