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.

Wonderful World Bundle

G’Day Friends,

A couple of months ago, we played arouned with a Fun Fold for one of our Mystery Stamping sessions.

I wanted to highlight the lovely Wonderful World Bundle which included the DSP & the coordinating Stamp Set.

The flowers were stamped with Fresh Freesia Ink prior to daubing a little of Rich Razzleberry Ink around the edges with a Sponge Dauber.  Don’t they look so lovely & soft?

Look at that pretty belly band?  Of course, you have to have matchy matchy, right?  So I added a small piece of the lovely DSP to to the inside too.

G’Day Friends,

I have an easy but fun technique for you today.  I first saw this somewhere in my social media feed either TickTok, Pinterest or FB.  I’m not sure which but it stuck in the back of my mind & thought I would give it ago.

To create my bubbles, I’ve used Coastal Cabana Ink along with a Sponge Dauber.  You could also use your Blending Brushes if you wish along with as many colours as you like.

It would be great to see the same effect with different shapes or even balloons.

I am loving the soft colour of Coastal Cabana along with the Bermuda Bay togs & Basic Grey sentiment.  What about the bling?  They are the Evening Evergreen Opal Rounds which just pops the card even more.

Go To Greetings

G’Day Friends.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Today, I have a “bits & pieces” project to share with you.  It is one that I’ve created with a a little this & a little that rejected from other projects.  Now, in saying that it wasn’t because I didn’t like them, they just didn’t go with the final project or looked a little out of place.

I will also admit that I am not good at going back using up bits & pieces.  With me, they either get used for that particular project or they end up in the bin!

The paper is from the now retired Waves of the Ocean DSP while the leaf is from Palms Dies & die cut with Granny Apple Green.

The daisy has been punched with the Medium Daisy Punch from Basic White Cardstock, sponged with Pacific Point Ink & a Sponge Dauber.

Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop – May 2022

G’Day Friends,

Thank you so much for joining me today.  Once again I am joining Kylie & Bruno’s  Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Monthly Team Blog Hop although it has been a couple of months!

We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin’ Up!® business and to reach goals we have set ourselves.  Your support is really appreciated.

You may be starting here – Vicky Wright – or have come from another blog – either way you can find the Blog Roll at the bottom of this post.  By clicking on the links, you are sure not to miss out on lots of inspiration for your next project.

As these will be my customer Thank You cards, I wanted to keep my card fairly simple while at the same time create a bit of a WOW.  I then went for Friends are Like Seashells Stamp Set along with the matching Seashells 3D Embossing Folder & the Seaside Seashells Dies.  Try saying all that fast – I had a lot of trouble typing it lol.

Tahitian Tide really jumps out at you so to tone it down a little, I daubed Pacific Point Ink onto an image with a Sponge Dauber prior to stamping it.  It come out a little darker than the Tahitian Tide but toned down from the real colour of Pacific Point.

The sentiment is from the lovely Sending Smiles Stamp Set while the die cut shape is from the matching Sending Dies.  I can see myself using these a lot throughout the year.

The card has been finished off with a couple of Opal Rounds randomly adhered to the Front.

Belle & I were out & about early on our walk this morning.  In fact, it was still dark when we left home, but by the time we hit the beach, I was struck with the most amazing sunrise with the sun just starting to appear.  Can I just say, most days the sunrise is amazing but some more so than others.

As I sat down to create my card, I knew I wanted to try & capture the image into my card.  I think I have!

The circle was die cut with the Layering Circles Dies before being embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  To create the scene, the images were stamped onto a piece of Bsaic White Cardstock before being adhered to the back of the circle.

The sentiment is from the Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set.
