Artistically Inked

G’Day Friends,

Today I am sharing with you the card I created for our series of CASEing the Catalogue.

Of course, we couldn’t go past the front cover of the Annual Catalogue without doing our version of the cover.  The colours & design are so bright & fun.  I never tire of looking at the cover.

I decided to go with Artistically Ink Stamp Set along with the matching Artistic Dies.  Both of which I haven’t played with in some time.  Although in saying that, I’ve only used the sentiment from the Stamp Set after all!

A piece of Balmy Blue Cardstock was embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder while the die cut flower shape has been sponged with Sponge Daubers with Old Olive, So Saffron, Merry Merlot & Balmy Blue Inks.

The sentiment has been stamped with Merry Merlot Ink before being cut back to size & shape.  A piece of the Gold & Vanilla Satin-Edged Ribbon was adhered behind the sentiment prior to being adhered across the flower with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To see how I coloured the die cut flower, be sure to check out the video.  I also show bonus projects to inspire you.

To complete the card, Palye Papaya Opal Rounds were randomly added to the card front.
I’m loving the colours of Pale Papaya, Balmy Blue & Very Vanilla along with the Ink colours.

Create Weekly #19 with Butterfly Brilliance by Stampin’ Up!

G’Day Friends,

Thank you so much for popping by.  It is so very much appreciated.

Before we get into today’s share, I just wanted to let you know that November’s Stamp & Card Club is now open.  This club is only available via monthly subscription. We’re playing with the Happiness Abounds Stamp Set along with the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper.

For all the information about this club & to subscribe, click on this LINK

Each Sunday I share a Sketch Layout for our group to play with.

Then the next day – Monday, I share a video tutorial showing how I created my card along with a bonus project using the same layout.  It’s a lot of fun, especially great if you are stuck for inspiration.

It is a simple layout although you can make it as hard or asa easy as you like.  In my case, I let the lovely DSP do all the talking & be the star of the show.

I created my card with the Design a Daydream DSP which I teamed up with the lovely Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set & the matching Brilliant Wings Dies.

The Cardstock colours are Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive & Basic White while the Ink is So Saffron & Blackberry Bliss.

The sentiment on the card is from the fun Biggest Wish Stamp Set & one of my go to sets.  I love that you can do so much with it & have a different result each time.

Click HERE to see the original card created in the video.

By clicking on the video below, you will be able to watch how it was created including an alternate idea with the same sketch layout.  That’s 3 different ideas!

Friends are like Seashells

G’Day Friends,

Thank you so much for dropping by.  It is always very much appreciated.

Last week for our Stamp & Create FB Live we cased a card on Page 15 of the 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue.  Some of us forget to use our Catalogues as inspiration.

As I don’t have the same supplies used, I decided to go with the lovely Friends are like Seashells Stamp Set.  I also created my card a standard size & added another layer.

Hues of Happiness Suite by Stampin’ Up!

G’Day Friends,

Thank you so much for dropping by.  It is always very much appreciated.

Today I am sharing our Create Weekly #19 Sketch layout.  I share a layout each Sunday & the on the Monday a video is shared creating a card with the layout along with 1 or 2 alternate ideas.  They are always nice & easy which is what it is all about plus it’s a great way of getting your mojo going with the added bonus of being lots of fun.

For my card today I played with one of everyone’s favoutite- the Hues of Happiness Suite which is in the Annual Catalogue.  Even though I am not a Bright’s person, I am loving all the bright colours in this Suite.

The Base Card is Pool Party & teamed up with the lovely So Saffron flower which has been die cut from the gorgeous DSP.  Don’t you love it when we can do that?

By clicking on the link below, you will be able to see 2 alternate ideas created with the same sketch layout.

Butterfly Kisses Suite by Stampin’ Up

G’Day Friends,

We played around with the fun & bright Best Butterflies Suite in our Stamp & Create FB Live yesterday.

Each week, I post a Sketch Layout where we create our project using the layout.

I thought it would be fun to showcase an alternate way of creating a very easy Fun Fold using the Sketch Layout.

I will be honest & say I didn’t really look at this Suite from the Annual until recently.  After playing with it for a few days even creating a bright Cards to GO! Kit with it, I’m happy to say that I am loving it so much.  So much fun!

Click on this link to watch the video on how I created my card.  I also show you another version created with the Same Suite & Sketch Layout.

Wonderful World Bundle

G’Day Friends,

Today I have a fun way of chopping your Designer Series Paper along with a Sketch Layout we did on a FB Live a couple of weeks ago.

As always a simple layout but one that I think I will be using a lot more often.

I think we are all loving the gorgeous paper from Wonderful World Bundle, I know I am.  It is Level 2, July-August Sale-a-Bration.  This is the perfect way of showcasing both the paper & the stamp set.

I have a video for you showing how I created another card but using the same layout.  Click on this link to watch the video.

Kylie’s International Blog Highlights

G’Day Friends,

Today I am hopping along with Kylie’s International Blog Hop for July.  This is a hop where Demonstrators from all around the world chose to take part highlighting all our lovely product.  If this is the first time visiting my blog, thank you so much for dropping by.

You are able to vote for my card Here or by clicking on the photo below.

Thank You is our theme for the hop.  Many of us don’t take the time to thank the ones we love or care about.  It can be the simple things that they do for us each day or big things that they have done recently.  It is so important to say thank you and show our appreciation for the hard work of others and the kindness that they show.

I love creating this type of card & posting them off in the mail or leaving them in my neighbours letterboxes.  Do you know of anyone you can this type of card to?  I’m sure they would appreciate it.

I’ve been playing with the gorgeous Splendid Day Suite from the new Mini & wow, are you going to love creating with it too!   It’s simply stunning & perfect for all occasions.

At first the main image was stamped onto Basic White but after putting the card together I decided it needed a little something else as it was too flat.  I then stamped the same image onto scrap Basic White, coloured & blended with Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Combo, finishing off with the Clear Wink of Stella.

After die cutting the image with the Splendid Stems Dies, it was adhered over the top of the original image with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Much better I think.

The sentiment is from one of my favourites – Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set.  Not only is it perfect for all occasions but the font seems to suit all cards.

If you live in Australia, click on the photo below to purchase this Suite.  Don’t forget to use the July Host Code – HXQEXPCS –  if your order is under $250.

  • All orders receive a Handmade Card & a PDF Tutorial.
  • Orders over $50 receive a Handmade Card plus an exclusive Megal Splendid Day PDF Tutorial Bundle or you able to purchase this Tutorial Bundle HERE.

Splendid Day Suite = $145.75

Don’t forget to click HERE to vote for me.  I would really apreciate it!
