Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop: Valentine's Day - Rooted In Nature

Welcome to the monthly Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop.  You are currently visiting Stephanie Fischer (The Crafty Thinker) from Australia.

Our theme this month is Valentine's Day and this is my card. I've never been more grateful that my husband doesn't know the names of any of my stamp sets!
#thecraftythinker #stampinup #cardmaking #valentinecard #rootedinnature #sdbh , Valentine Card, SDBH, Rooted In Nature, Masculine Card, Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Stephanie Fischer, Sydney NSW
A masculine Valentine Card with no hearts in sight!
I'm not really one for hearts and pink (or even traditional red) for Valentines day.  This has a masculine, non-frilly approach to saying the most important thing.

The last year has been extremely difficult and my wonderful husband has been there beside me the whole way: holding my hand, supporting me; reminding me who I am, who we are and that life is good.

Thank you for visiting.  I hope you enjoyed this card.  You are currently visiting Stephanie Fischer - be sure to click on "Click here to enter" below and then click on all of the photos below to check out all of the other wonderful projects that my co-hoppers are sharing today,  you don't want to miss any!

'Til next time!

Three FREE products from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue combined into one card!

I think it's well established that I love FREEBIES!  What could be better than being able to use a FREE product to make a pretty card? .... Using THREE free products!

To make this card I used a tiny bit of ink, some cardstock, a little piece of ribbon and three FREE products from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue:  Lovely Lily Pad stamp set, coordinating Lily Pad Dies and Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper.

I'm doing a happy dance!

Free As A Bird on Bermuda Bay

#thecraftythinker  #stampinup  #cardmaking  #saleabration  #freeasabird #scripty , Sale-A-Bration, Free As A Bird, Scripty, Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Stephanie Fischer, Sydney NSW
The Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper is so versatile!
And it's FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a qualifying order
Well, it's official - I'm totally besotted with the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper!  And not because I got it FREE (with my qualifying purchase during Sale-A-Bration) - although I love that too - but because it's stunning!!!  And versatile!!

So I've been finding all sorts of things to do with it and pair with it!

This card began with my desire to colour a piece of the golden honeycomb design.  I used a sponge brayer to apply some Bermuda Bay ink.

Then I watercoloured and cut out a bird from the Free As A Bird stamp set, added a greeting stamped onto a label cut with one of the Stitched Nested Labels that forms part of the Free As A Bird Bundle (10% saving!) and ran the Bermuda Bay layer through the Big Shot with the Scripty 3D embossing folder.

My advice? .... Take advantage of Sale-A-Bration while it lasts! (until 31st March).

Thanks for visiting.
'Til next time!

Golden Honey Poppy Sympathy

#thecraftythinker #stampinup #cardmaking #sympathycard #poppymoments #saleabration2020 , sympathy card, Poppy Moments, Sale-A-Bration, Mini Catalogue, Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Stephanie Fischer, Sydney NSW
A Sympathy card created with the Poppy Moments Dies and Golden Honey papers
The Poppy Moments Dies did the heavy lifting for this card, using Basic Black, Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape cardstock.

I watercoloured the flowers on the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper, layered it onto a piece of black cardstock and added some Gorgeous Grape Mini Striped Ribbon.

The word "sympathy" is cut from black cardstock using one of the Well Written Dies.

The Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper is free during Sale-A-Bration with a qualifying purchase.

Thank you for visiting.
