Hopping by…

Morning all and welcome to my stop on the ILWS colour coach blog hop. If you’ve started from the beginning (Anthea's Blog)  then hopefully you’ve arrived from Jane’s blog. However If you’ve started here, then simply follow the link at the end of my post to Val’s blog, then continue on around the loop, and you’ll eventually end up back here! There is also a second loop running which starts with Emily.

For my samples I chose a simple masculine colour combination of Whisper White, Marina Mist and Night of Navy – all of which are from our ‘getting started’ colour collection. I used the circle circus stamp set to create a one sheet wonder on A4 whisper white cardstock in my two ink colours, and then cut the panel into lots of smaller pieces to make the following collection of cards.


It’s a really simple technique for generating a number of cards on a theme with a limited selection of supplies, and can be used with lots of our stamp sets – I’ve used it previously with greenhouse garden and serene snowflakes. Here are the cards in a little more detail.



Hopefully you’ve reached this far! Now it’s time to hop on over to my lovely friend Val’s blog and discover what she’s been creating with Rich Razzleberry – yum!

I’ll be back soon with some sneak peeks of my upcoming ‘Plane & Simple’ class.

Until then
