Hello and welcome to this month’s blog hop with the Creative Crew. We thought we would share with you some sneak peaks from the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue which goes live on 1st June and believe me you won’t be disappointed!
You are currently visiting me – Gina Connor AKA Emerald Kreations from the Emerald Isle , Northern Ireland. If you are following the blog hop, you will have arrived here from the very talented Eimear and her gorgeous project.
A friend of mine has recently moved into a new house and we have the perfect stamp set and co ordinating dies, for the occasion- “At home with You” .
I stamped the image on Watercolour paper with Smokey Slate and then used an Aqua painter to colour in the images. The door is in Soft Sky.
Do you see how clever the dies are? There is a die to cut out the door surround and then there is another die which cuts into 3 sides of the door, allowing the door to open. How clever is that !
I hope you have enjoyed your hop to my blog. If you click on the button below, it will take you to the lovely Sarah Berry’s blog and you can see what delight she has come up with this month.

Welcome to the Stampin’ Creative March blog hop. You are currently visiting me ! Gina Connor aka Emerald Kreations from Northern Ireland. Hello there!
This month’s theme is Last Chance Sale-a-bration. I have chosen to use the beautiful Delicate Details stamp set from the Sale-a-bration brochure. It’s such a pretty feminine set!
I used Sahara Sand ink and co-ordinating card with Whisper White card and a little bit of Blushing Bride ink. Oh and some bling !
To make sure everything was straight I used my grid paper and made sure the Whisper White card was sitting straight on the paper. I then took care before putting the stamp on the card, making sure that each end of the stamp was on the same line either side of the card.

Next week I am taking part in a Stampin’ Up ! Experience event at the Dunsilly Hotel. There are 4 demonstrators taking a class each and I decided to showcase the beautiful “Urban Underground” designer series paper.
It has been a while since my Gift Bag Punch Board has been out of the box and it was great to use it again as I had forgotten how it’s so easy to use! I used a full sheet of 12×12 to make this large bag.
I am using the “Hello You Thinlets” which co- ordinate with the “Crazy About You ” stamp set . This set covers every occasion possible and I just love the clear, simple font .
My husband loves to receive “nice” socks for Father’s Day and this is the perfect gift wrap for them! All I have to do now is get the socks !!
Thank you for visiting my blog ! See you again soon x
Hello and welcome to this month’s blog hop with the Creative Crew. It only seems like yesterday since I posted on the last hop – doesn’t time fly! You are currently visiting me – Gina Connor AKA Emerald Kreations from Northern Ireland.
The theme for this month’s blog hop is Birthday Bonanaza. I decided I would share with you a card that we made in class on Monday using the ” Cake Crazy” stamp set.
The card is actually a Z card which means that the front side folds back on itself to form a Z. Here is the inside view of the card , you can see the “Z” maybe from this angle.
The measurements for the base card is 21cm by 14.9 cm. Along the the 21cm side I scored at 5.25 cm and 10.5 cm . I then used a bone folder to give a good crease on the 5.25cm scoreline.
I stamped my image on a piece of Whisper White card measuring 8cm X 14.9cm and adhered it to a piece of Pool Party card which measured 8.4cm X 14.9cm .
The insert measures 8cm x 14.9cm and when fixing it to the base card I made sure that it was directly under the Pool Party layer, so that it can’t be seen when the card is closed.

Take care and see you all next month ! X

Good morning from a very wet Northern Ireland ! I don’t know about you but I’m ready for some warmer temperatures! Winter is far too long in this country!
So today I thought I would share with you a card that I made for a card buffet in January using the Sale-a-bration stamp set Avant Garden. I just love this set and it was a firm favourite with my customers at the event.
I used the “Stampin off technique” to show how you can get two different tones inking the stamp once but stamping twice. The colours that I used were Watermelon Wonder and Pear Pizzazz.
You a receive this stamp set free from me if you place an order for £45 . I love the sentiments in the set as well so it is a great set to add to your stash.
Thank you for visiting my blog, have a great day x
Hello and welcome to the Stampin Creative January blog hop. Currently you are visiting me ! Gina Connor AKA Emerald Kreations. This month’s theme is all about wildlife so I thought I would bring out the beautiful Dragonflies stamp set and see what I could come up with. I thought I would do something a little different with the ribbon – what do you think ? It’s certainly different!
I love the Bermuda Bay colour – it’s so fresh and really compliments the grey . Of course I had to include a little sparkle to make it ” pop” !

Hello and welcome to the Stampin Creative December blog hop. You are currently visiting me – Gina Connor aka Emerald Kreations.
I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas, for me it’s all about spending time with family and friends!
This month’s theme is “Sneak Peak ” into our new Spring Summer Catalogue which goes live next week! As a demonstrator we are given the privilege to preorder the new products before the catalogue launch date. I just love the “Special Reason” bundle and just had to have a play with it. I saw this card on Pinterest and just had to case it using different colours. There are some lovely wording in this set which makes it very special!
Thank you for visiting my blog. The next stop is with the lovely Mikaela and I’m sure she will have something totally fabulous for you to see!
I wish you all a very Happy New Year !

It seems to have become a tradition to make a new tissue box cover for Christmas every year in our last class for the year. I used the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set and co ordinating dies and decided instead of using a red/ green colour combination I would use my favourite colour combination – Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky and Whisper White. We used the Softly Falling embossing folder for the back ground to create some texture.
I added a little bell with a bow for a little detail. I love this set! I will be back with some other cards that I have made using this set – meanwhile I must get and make some more Christmas cards !!
Thank you for visiting .x
I have made a start on my Christmas cards – I intend to be organised this year ! I have such fun with theses little fellows – Merry Mice, aren’t they cute ?
I coloured then in using a blender pen . I scribbled a little bit of ink from the wide tip end on the markers onto a ceramic tile and then picked up the colour with the blender pen. It gives a much softer colour and you can add shade by adding more colour to the areas that you wish.
I like to stamp a little on the envelopes, just to make them a little different.
I hope you have enjoyed these . Thank you for stopping by . x
Hello and welcome to this month’s Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop. Currently you are visiting me! Gina Connor AKA Emerald Kreations. The theme this month is Gift Wrapping Ideas which I do think is very helpful at this time of year. With this in mind and a few invites to some Christmas parties on the calendar, I thought I would make some little for some “liquid” gifts.
I used the “Here’s to Cheers” stamp set and co-ordinating “Cheerful Tags ” framelits dies. They are so quick and easy to make! I kept the colour theme simple but traditional. The little holly embellishment was made using the “Holly Berry Builder ” punch .
