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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

To check out how I created my card, click on the video

Vintage Christmas & Mystery Stamping

G’Day Friends,

Yesterday we did a little bit of Mystery Stamping as we hadn’t done any for some time.

I took the clues from a card I had created a week or so ago & went with it.

The Cardstock is Evening Evergreen while the Ink is Crumb Cake & Cherry Cobbler.

The paper is the lovely Lights Aglow Specialty 6 x 6 from the current Mini Catalogue.

It has been finished off with the Festive Pearls also from the current Mini Catalogue.

Inspirations in Ink August Blog Hop

G’Day Friends,

Thank you for dropping by & welcome to our monthly Inspirations in Ink Blog Hop.

So sad to say that today is the last day of Sale-a-Bration & the last day to grab theses cute litte hippos when placing a $90 order.  I’m not sure what has been your favourite but I have loved the Hippest Hippos along with the Hippo Dies.  So much fun, so many ideas, only 2 hands!

Who says Hipps can’t be blue?

Do you ever start out with something in mind but then end up a totally different finish –  nothing like what you were thinking of?  Well, this is one of those projects!

A piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock was embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder before lightly & gently dragging Crumb Cake Ink Pad over the top, first up & down & then from side to side.

Have you noticed their little bellies?   I did a little Paper Piercing with the lovely Splendid Day DSP by stamping 2 images direct onto the paper, fussy cutting the little bellies before adhering to the coloured images.

Friends are like Seashells – Day 5

G’Day Friends,

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

It’s Day 5 of the Feature of the Week!  Thank you so much for your emails saying how happy you are with this returning.

This week has all been about the lovely Friends are like Seashells from the Annual Catalogue & one of my favourites.

These are the cards we created in our FB Live the other day where we played with a 6 x 6 DSP One Sheet Wonder.  It was an easy layout but one with lots of variations.  I’ve only created 3 projects but as I’ve said, the list is endless.

I’ve used Starry Sky Cardstock for the Base Cards on all cards along with a layer of Basic White.  The only change on all cards are the images & colours!  The images have been stamped in Highland Heather, Mango Melody, Old Olive Inks while the sentiments were all stamped in Starry sky Ink.  A piece of the lovely Metallic Woven Starry Sky Ribbon were added along with the gorgeous Iridescent Rhinestones – oh how I love these Rhinestones!

Friends are like Seashells

GDay Friends,

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

Today sees the return of my Feature of the Week.  I’m happy to say that it is returning with one of my favourite Stamp Sets from the Annual Catalogue – Friends are like Seashells.

This is one I’ve cased from Pinterest & of course now I can’t find it to give credit to the creator.  If you recognise it, please let me know.

It’s been yonks since I’ve played with my Water Painters so when I saw this lovely card I thought it the perfect timing to dig them out & play around a little.

The colours I’ve used for the background are Bermuda Bay & Soft Suede.  I think I also mixed a little Crumb Cake there too.

Need supplies to create today’s project at home?  Click on this link to shop in my Online Store.  Don’t forget to use June Host Code – GANNR4W4 –  if your order is under $250.

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.
