Inspirations in Ink January Blog Hop

G’Day Friends,

Thank you for dropping by where once again it’s time for our Inspirations in Ink Blog Hop.

Welcome to January where we are showcasing the oh so gorgeous Seaside Bay Bundle.  I have loved playing with this Bundle so much that I know you will too.

You may be starting here – Vicky Wright, Australia – or have come from another blog.  Either way, you can find our Blog Roll at the end of this post, especially if you get a little lost.  All you have to do is click on the links to follow along.

Chcek out this cute little Seagull!  Don’t you think he is just the cutest?  To achieve this look, I inked the image with Sahara Sand Ink, prior to randomly daubing Night of Navy Ink over the feathers with a Sponge Dauber.

The sand/seahells image was stamped direct onto a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock with Sahara Sand Ink.  Yep,  you read right!  I wanted to play & create with Very Vanilla Cardstock instead of Basic White Cardstock which is what coordinates with the By the Seaside Designer Series Papers.  I think it worked out perfectly, but you be the judge.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my project today.  I have a few more projects to share with you throughout February along with the Bundle Focus Online Class all created with this gorgeous Bundle.

As mentioned above, this is a blog hop.  I know you will see amazing projects created with this Bundle along the way.  Of course, don’t forget to leave a little comment or 2 as you go.

January Stamp n’ Hop Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop & our very first for 2023 where it is all about the lovely products from 2023 January-February Sale-a-Bration.

We are a group of SU! Demos from all over the world sharing our love of Stampin’ Up!  Feel free to join us if you like, but we do ask that you be a current SU! Demo & that you use current SU! products.

You may have arrived from Gez’s blog where she shared her lovely creation.  If you are starting from my blog, all you have to do is click on the Blog Roll below in case you get lost!

For my project I decided to try & use some of the gorgeous papers for males so I had to look at them all from a different angle.  I think I have succeeded but you be the judge.

The paper is from the lovely Level 1 Dainty Flowers DSP which you can earn for FREE when spenidng $90 in my Online Store.

 Again I challenged myself to team the paper up with something I already had & the Whiskey Business Stamp Set was just that.  It is also one of my favourites.

The images were stamped onto Basic White Cardstock prior to being coloured & blended with Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Combo, fussy cut & adhere to the centre of the DSP panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped with Night of Navy Ink while the base card is Crushed Curry.  The colours have been taken from the colours in the DSP Pack.

Stamp ‘N Hop December Blog Hop

G’Day Friends,

Welcome to the Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop for December where it is all about Christmas!

We are a group of SU! Demos from all over the world sharing our love of Stampin’ Up!  Feel free to join us if you like, but we do ask that you be a current SU! Demo & that you use current SU! products.

You may have arrived from Mo’s blog where she shared her lovely creation.  If you are starting from my blog, all you have to do is click on the Blog Roll below in case you get lost!

As December is always full on, it is a very short hop this month.  All the same, I’m sure you will find inspiration for your Christmas projects.

I’ve been creating my Christmas Cards with an Australian feel about them.  Not necessarily all the same but same layout with different stamp sets which I will be sharing over the next few days.  It isn’t often that I create multiples of the same card but I love this layout & I love this stamp set!

My cards today have been created with one of my favourite layouts which I think is quick & easy!  I’ve used the 2022-2024 In Colour DSP to create them along with the Sunkissed Stamp Set from the current Mini Catalogue.  This fun set will no longer be available once the Mini finishes.  Shop for this set NOW.

The Stampin’ Write Markers of Tahitian Tide, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake & Old Olive were used to colour the image prior to huffing & then stamping onto the die cut stitched rectangle.

The cards were completed by randomly adding Pearlescent White Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  Next up is Vickie.  If you get lost, be sure to click on the very short Roll Call below.  Please share a little love by leaving comments as you visit.  I know they would appreciate it.

Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop – November 2022

G’Day Friends,

Thank you so much for joining me today.  Once again I am joining Kylie & Bruno’s  Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Monthly Training Blog Hop.  I love these hops, so many ideas & inspiration, so many talented crafters & Demos.

I wanted to use my Stampin’ Write Markers in some way on my card this month.  I feel that sometimes we just sort of overlook our wonderful Markers.  I know I do, do you?

The panel has been masked off with Masking Sheets prior to randomly stamping an image & then carefully removing the masks prior to ruling a line down each side where the stamping ends.  It sort of looks like it has been layered onto Cardstock, don’t you think?
