Creative Inkers Occasions Blog Hop

Hi there

Occasions Badge

Welcome back to our second Creative Inkers Blog Hop for 2015.  This blog hop showcases products from the Occasions Catalogue that was released earlier this month and is here until 2 June 2015.  It's full of lovely stamp sets, paper and accessories.  Don't forget that for every $110 NZD that you spend between now and 31 March 2015 you get to choose FREE product from the Sale-A-Bration brochure.

If you've been following the blog hop you will have come from the very talented Rachael Knight or you may have just joined my page.  If you get 'lost' there's a list of all the blogs at the bottom of this post.  So grab a cuppa and enjoy the 'hop' - this is a longer post than normal so read to the bottom :)

I've gone with the same style of card - Magic Card - for my two projects.  The first one uses my favourite set - From the Herd.  I've always wanted to make a Magic card and this set works perfectly.

What's so magical about this card you say - well wait until you pull the tab up and voila - colour appears.

And here's the herd on the inside.

I've coloured my images using our Blendabilities - which you can get FREE as part of Sale-A-Bration.

Stamp set - From the Herd
Card Stock - Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Whisper White
DSP - Park Lane
Ink/Blendabilities - Momento Black Ink, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Smoky Slate, Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler, Wild Wasabi, Black StazOn
Other - 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Deco Labels, Window Sheet, Early Espresso Bakers Twine

For my second card I've used a set that I think will become a favourite - Sheltering Tree.  Again - where's the magic?


And a close up - this was so much fun to stamp.  First the tree trunk, then the leaves (whatever the season), then the grass and finally personalise your scene.  I've added the swing and bike with a few 'flowers' off to the left.

And the inside can't be left out
