Kylie's October Greek Isles Blog Hop

Hi my name is Donna Gray I am an Independent Stampin Up!®Demonstrator in Northern NSW Australia 
I joined Stampin Up! in July 2016 and I just have to say it was definitely one of the best decisions I have made in the last 10 years for sure
I not only have met some fantastic people in the last 2 years I have created some wonderful friendships that I am sure will last a lifetime 
I am so blessed to be participating in this wonderful blog hop today with some of the most talented Demonstrators from all over the world
So I was very new at the Stampin Up! world I didn't have much of an idea about the business side of Stampin Up! let alone know of all the awesome bonuses that could be earned if you worked hard but I am sure finding out now
I not only achieved a wonderful growth in my business but was able to earn my first incentive trip
My little team of 1 grew to a team of 28 on my first level 8 on my 2nd level & 2 on my 3rd level 
Wow who would have thought my year would turn out like that 
I am so so excited to be able to have my first ever trip overseas and to be able to share it with my husband and so many other demonstrators from all over the world
I still feel like I need someone to pinch me as it all still feels like a dream!!!

I decided to share one of my card that I made in a Facebook live video using the Falling for Leaves
Stamp Set I also wanted to keep it very neutral with the colour as the framelits are just to die for so I felt the black really made them show their beauty

 I love making cards with the neutral tones & sometimes adding a splash of colour

I also created this cute card using the Buffalo Check Stamp as a background & the Spirited Snowman stamp as the feature on the front of the card Who doesn't love a cute snowman stampset I know I do

You can catch the replay of my facebook live video below

Thank you all for blog Hopping with us today feel free to hop to the next talented Demonstrator on the list

Facebook Live Creations using Stampin Up! New Snowflake Showcase Stamping with DonnaG!

Oh what fun it is to get new Stampin Up! Special Edition Stamp Sets & Framelits
I had soo much fun today in my Facebook Live video 
Not only did I create a glimmery card using the 
Beautiful Baubles Stamp set, Framelits
& some awesome gold Heat Embossing but I created
another very earthy card using one of my favorite bundles
The Winter Woods
I also made a cute little treat box
The first card I made I used the Beautiful Baubles Stamp set & framelits Adding the glimmer paper & the gold embossing makes this card look very elegant
I used whisper white thick card stock for the base cut at 5 3/4"x8" folded in half
Gold Glimmer Paper cut at 5 1/2" x 3 3/4" for the first layer
Then with my whisper white I used the framelit without the outer frame to cut the circle that I stamped the large bauble & Embossed with gold heat embossing It didnt matter that the white layer was also cut from the framelit as I cut the framelit with the outer layer framelit to create the beautiful glimmer frame
I then embossed the Deck The Halls sentiment I used the tripple banner punch to flag the end & layered it onto a thin strip of glimmer paper
Product List
My second card I used one of my new favorites The Winter Woods Bundle 
I used my most favorite colour of all Blackberry Bliss as my base cut at 5 3/4"x8" folded in half
I then used Early Expresso for my first layer cut at 5 1/2"x 3 3/4"
I then embossed a layer of Sahara Sand with the Woodlands embossing folder
I stamped the tree image in early Expresso ink onto Sahara Sand Card stock & cut it out with the matching framelit
I also stamped the sentiment & cut it out with one of my label punches
You may ask how did you get that layer of gold foil behind my sentiment label?
I cut a label out with the punch & cut it in half to glue onto the back of my sentiment to add a gold highlight to the label It works a treat!!
Product List
My 3rd project was this cute little treat box using The Takeout Treats Bundle & some of the dashing along DSP that was a limited edition in September
The framelit did all the work for me you cut 2 pieces & adhere them together with some liquid glue I stamped the stripey label in Real Red & used the matching framelit to cut it out I then stamped the cute saying Something Sweet to Eat & cut it out with the awesome framelit that is designed to look like a ribbon
Product List

Stampin Up! Rooted In Nature Card Set Stamping with DonnaG!

If you love leaves & Trees you will love the new Stampin Up! Rooted In Nature Bundle!!!

I simply love this bundle for making cards for all occasions
 I had so much fun playing around with some of my favorite colours Yes you guessed it Blackberry Bliss is definitely top of the list
I mixed it up with the card bases as you can see 1 was Crumb Cake Another Blackberry Bliss & the third I decided to go for a very clean simple look with the very vanilla
All card bases are cut at 5 3/4"x8"
The Blackberry Bliss card I used a combination of Blackberry Bliss Grapefruit Grove & Soft Suede 
I have stamped using these colours onto a whisper white piece f card stock layered onto a grapefruit grove piece of card stock 
I think finishing it of with our bakers twine just adds to that great earthy look
