Global Stamping Friends - Circles!

Welcome to our November blog hop with Global Stamping Friends! Our theme this month is circles. My card has a few circles on it, I used the Layering Circles Framelits and the Tin Tile Embossing Folder that has circle patterns. And because it's November with Remembrance Day coming I choose Poppy Parade for my flowers.


Next week is Stampin' Up!'s Onstage in Orlando, Florida! I'm so excited and almost all packed, my swaps are done and so looking forward to seeing almost 7,000 other demonstrators from around the world! Even better is that I will get to meet a few others that participate in this blog hop while at Onstage! If you would like to see pictures and updates from Onstage you can follow me on Facebook: www.facebook.com/FromWhereIStamp and Instagram: www.instagram.com/FromWhereIStamp

Oct Crop - RMHC

Thank you to everyone who spent time crafting the day away on Saturday. It was the perfect day to hide inside while rain/sleet/snow fell! This month's crop was in support of Ronald MacDonald House Charities.

For the pocket page we used the same designer series paper that participants received in their grab bags in September. The First Frost stamp set is very versatile! Works very well for any season and so many different colours.


Lisa designed the scrapbook page and the 3D item - a calendar easel. We hope everyone enjoyed making the projects.

Extraordinary Hop - Global Stampin Friends


Welcome to a special Extraordinary Blog Hop with Global Stamping Friends! We are highlighting projects featuring new products from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.


This past weekend I helped run Crop Kingston's Fall Weekend Retreat here in Kingston, Ontario. I was able to borrow the stamp set, framelits and embossing folders from friends at the retreat to create this card. On Sunday when I placed my order those items were the first ones on my list! They will arrive next week and I am looking forward to playing with the beautiful stamp set again.

The flowers and leaves were leftovers from another card that I will post next week. I stamped extra images and since they were sitting on my work space it was a perfect opportunity to make another card! To create the embossed piece behind the bouquet I put a piece of Champagne Foil sheet into the Big Shot with the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder first and then lightly swiped my Whisper White Craft Ink pad to highlight the raised portions of the embossed image.

Supplies
Stamps: First Frost and Detailed With Love
Colours: Blackberry Bliss, Grapefruit Grove, Granny Apple Green
Accessories: Frosted Banquet Framelits, Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder, Champagne Foil Sheet, Subtle Embossing Folder, Stampin' Dimensionals, Stitched Labels Framelits, 3/16" Braided Linen Trim

Old Farm Truck - Christmas!

I so love the truck from the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set!


I coloured in the truck and tree using a blender pen. The effect makes it look like an old farm truck that the sun has faded the paint so I added a few rust spots! Unfortunately, it reminds me of my rusty truck!

Supplies
Stamps: Farmhouse Christmas
Colours: Crumb Cake, Call Me Clover, Blueberry Bliss
Accessories: All is Bright designer series paper, Farmhouse Framelits, 1/4" Copper Trim, Gold Faceted Gems, Blender Pen
