Top 10 International Highlights Winner's Hop July 2020

I am beyond thrilled to be one of the Top Ten Winners this month!! The theme for every Highlight Hop is Thank you.  I created this card to Thank everyone who voted for my card.  I appreciate all 131 votes!! 

My card is more of a “You’ve been on my mind”. I have a dear friend going thru a health thing and she has been on my mind and in my prayers. She makes the most gorgeous cards and has been generous with her friendship. So I wanted to make a gorgeous card to send her and sharing it for my top 10 win seemed appropriate. 

As in my original submission I used the Peony Garden suite. My friend sent me this for inspiration. So I had to use it. 



The flowers are sponge daubered with Blushing Bride, Rich Razzleberry and BlackBerry Bliss. I coloured the seam binding ribbon with the same colours. 



I hope you enjoy my card!!  Thanks again to All who voted for me!!

Happy Stampin’

Stamper's Showcase - Gift Packaging


Welcome, and for those who are here for the first time, 
my name is Annette Ball I am an independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in Canada.  Today I am hopping with my friends on the Stampers Showcase Group.

The Theme this month is Gift Packaging.
One of my Favourite things is Gift Tags and stamping lends itself well to creating all kinds of tags.  So I created 3 different gifty ideas.  I created a bag with cardstock. stamped a panel with peonies in the same colour; Blushing Bride. I cut out 3 peonies to create some dimension and tucked in a few leaves too.  I used the lace trim to make a girlie bow and I Love how it turned out!!  Next I used a paper lunch bag, cut an inch off the top, stamped and sponged it with Crumb Cake.  This tag is also Early Espresso.  I attached a crumbcake die cut and a coloured sunflower.  Lastly I used on of the new rectagular tins coming in the Mini Catalogue with the intention of putting a Coffee Gift card inside.  I am going to get a lot of use out of these tins this Christmas!!


Stamp Sets used; Peony Garden, Celebrate Sunflower Bundle and Nothing Better Than Stamp set

I hope you enjoyed my projects.  Everything you see is available at my online store.  Just click on the Canadian Flag to get there.  You do have to live in Canada to shop from me.
Please keep hopping to see what other gift packaging ideas you might find on my friends blogs!!
And please leave comments..we Love feedback!!

Happy Stamping!!
