Weekend Blog Hop Round Up!

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 

Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it. I had a busy weekend with 4 blog hops & a Facebook Live!  I thought I would do a round up of the blog hops for you just in case you missed any of them.   I will have published  tutorials on my YouTube channel very soon soon. 

Weekend Blog Hop Round Up

Stamp 'N Hop Blog Hop

For this blog hop I made 2 cards, was not my intention to make 2 when I started it just worked out that way. We were mixing the old with the new.  I mixed a lovely new stamp set - and my lovely new Scan N Cut machine! - with some old DSP, ribbon and die set from the annual catalogue. The second card, the belated birthday was because a fried posted on Facebook tat it was their youngest 2nd birthday & I thought oops I need a card for her, so here it is! I will have a video coming out on Friday showing how I made this card.

Pootlers Team Blog Hop

At the start of every new catalogue as a team we always do a blog hop. SO this is the team New Stampin' Up! Jan - June Mini catalogue.  I made this box which is a CASE of a former team mate. I have made it smaller and created a sweet Valentines gift box. I have a video tutorial coming out tomorrow for this box :-)

Ink. Stamp. Share  Showcase Blog Hop

I love this blog hop as I get to share what ever I want. This month I have been playing with my Scan N Cut and seeing what images from DSP it will cut. I am not a huge fan of these pansies that cover an entire sheet of DSP, I think they look a bit like crazy, colourful Ewoks & I keep wanting to put eyes on them! Anyway I decided to see if my machine would cut them out and maybe in isolation I would use them. It did and I did! I have CASE'd my good friend Jill from Paper Daisy crafting for this card. In fact I went a bit mad and made it in 4 different colours! There will be a video soon on my YouTube channel :-)

Stamping Inkspirations  Blog Hop

Finally I had a card sketch to follow with added shimmer and shine. This is not my favourite card I have ever made but after preparing for these 4 blog hops and for a Facebook live this weekend I was not going to make another one! I may do a video but change it a bit so I do like it!
