Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Holiday Catalogue Favourites 2019

Hello lovelies, a warm welcome to the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop. This month's theme is our Holiday Catalogue Favourites. I'm so excited! All these products will be available from September 4th.

I'm Sharni Haines from Australia you may have started here or come from the talented Danielle Bennenk either way have a look and keep on hopping around to see what fabulous creations everyone has to share with us!




I look forward to this Holiday Catalogue every year because I LOVE Halloween & Christmas! I always find something in it that I just can't resist. This year, one of my favourites was the super cute Elfie's. (of course I have others but let's just start here!)


I have created a mix of cards to show you...and to suit all levels of stampers...the Beginner, the Casual and the Avid Stamper.




BEGINNER STAMPER

My favourite (this week) from the Holiday Catalogue is the Elfie Stamp Set. I have created a super simple design for the beginner stamper. I stamped the image onto some Shimmery Paper and coloured in with the Blends.





The colours I used were Flirty Flamingo (cheeks), Lovely Lipstick, Smokey Slate, Ivory for the skin and Bronze for the hair.




I added a little splash of colour in the background using my Aqua Painter. I put some ink onto a stamp base, mixed with a bit of water and lightly brushed onto the Shimmery Cardstock - careful not to touch the stamped image (as this will cause it to run). Once dry, I glued the paper onto a Whisper White (thick) card base.




CASUAL STAMPER

Using the same papers and stamp, this time I cut out the stamped image and once coloured in, I mounted it onto some Dimensionals. I coloured the background the same way as the first card and once dry, I embossed the Shimmery Cardstock using the Subtle Embossing Folder.
