December 2018 Reveal, Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

December 2018 Reveal, Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!


Finally the day has arrived and the December 2018 Reveal, Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY is here! The Release will be available to purchase HERE at a NEW time of 9pm GMT tonight.

Hopefully you have hopped on over from HERE, where I have formally introduced all the NEW products. Now I have a couple more cards to share using some of the new stamps & stencils.

First up I have a card using Wonderful Day…


I thought I’d start with a bright and cheerful card 🙂 When I made my previous Wonderful Day cards I shared HERE, I stamped a bunch of the layered solid flower blooms in a variety of colours. These were 3 that were leftover and perfect to pop on a card.


I kept the card really simple with the Wonderful Day sentiment, embellishing the flowers with a leaf & foliage sprig and some Glossy Simply White Nuvo Drops. I added dimension to just the one pink flower and whole panel is adhered to the card base using foam adhesive too.

Next I had to use Pure Florals: Peony…


This time I stamped and embossed the smaller Peony bloom with VersaMark & Detail White EP onto watercolour card. I then used my Altenew watercolours to colour the blooms. Again, I am no expert at colouring or watercoloring, but having embossed the flowers, it gives you a line to keep inside. Plus with Peony flowers being so ‘fluffy’ and full you can get away with a more free style and artistic approach to colouring. Well, that’s my thinking anyway 😉



The sentiment is just one of the options from the stamp set and again I fussy cut and layered the blooms, with just the top left adhered with foam adhesive for a little dimension.

Lastly, I went Christmassy and used the Stencil In The Forest…



To create this card I used Distress Oxide Inks in Peeled Paint, Crushed Olive and Forest Moss. I secured my card layer and stencil in place and then loosely masked around each tree to selectively colour it with one of the trio of greens. It was quite a timely process, but the result is pretty cool.


I tied some red bakers twine with a bell bow to make the card resemble a Christmas gift and added the Jingle Bells sentiment from Simply Said Blocks Christmas.

That’s all I have to share with you for today, but I know that the team have an abundance of inspiration to show you using the new products.


Be sure to comment along the hop for your chance to win the ENTIRE Release!! You have until Midnight (GMT) Friday 14th December 2018 to comment and the winner will be announced soon after.

Happy Hopping!
