Layering Leaves | Stampin’ Up!

G’Day Friends,

It seems like forever since I’ve posted!  Things have been quiet on the home front starting in early February with no phone or internet for 10 days due to upgrades with the service.

Anyhow, Robbie & myself are back with sharing ideas & inspiration with you throughout the month of March.  We are caseing ourselves from March 2023.  Should be very interesting hey.

My card is actually from late February as I didn’t read the date correct but that is ok.  You can see all the details on my original card by clicking on this link.

Now, let me be honest here & say the piece I’ve used on my card today has been on my desk for sometime & I’ve just been moving it from spot to spot.  At one stage it ended up in the bin before being rescued.  You can imagine me doing a happy dance when I saw this card lol as the piece was just perfect for today’s card.

I am really happy with the layout of this one as it sort of come together of it’s own free will.  Does that often happen to you.

Stampin’ Up! | Soft Pastels | Easy Technique

G’Day Friends,

We’re playing with the Soft Pastels this month & sharing different ways of using these little beauties.  If you haven’t seen them, they on Page 125 of the 2023-2024 Annual Catalogue.

The colours I’ve used from the pack are Coastal Cabana, Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight & Poppy Parade.  Don’t you think they look beach?  Mind you, it didn’t start out that way.

The Artistically Inked Stamp Set & Artistic Dies have been teamed up with the Soft Pastels which give a real coastal look to the card.  The Cardstock is Basic White, Night of Navy & Grey Granite while the inks used are Tahitian Tide, Parakeet Party, Lemon Lolly & Night of Navy for the sentiment.

Why not have a play with your Soft Pastels & see what you can come up with.  They are so much fun!

Stampin’ Up! | Softly Stippled DSP | Thank You | Sale-a-Bration

G’Day Friends,

Today Robbie & myself are back for something a little different to share with you throughout the month of February.  We’re sharing our projects from February 2023.

This is gonna be a lot of fun especially seeing the same projects with new product.  You can check out the original post by clicking HERE.

For my project today, I’ve grabbed the Level 1, Softly Stippled DSP from Sale-a-Bration.  Much to my surprise, I love these papers, especially the colours.

Pool Party Ink was blended over a piece of Basic White Cardstock with a Blending Brush prior to adhering the fussy cut flowers over the top.  The flowers are from the same pack of Softly Stippled DSP.

The Base Card is Pool Party Cardstock while the Emblellishments are the Opaque Faceted Gems, Level 1, Sale-a-Bration.

G’Day Friends,

I have a very simple & easy Birthday Card to share with you today.

It’s our last week of sharing Brithday Cards with you  over on our FB Pages.  Sure hope you have gotten lots of ideas & inspiration from them.

I love it when you can use the opposite sides of our papers to create for the males or even the kids.

My card is just that – one for the kids!

This is just one side of the Flight & Airy Designer Series Papers, Level 1 Sale-a-Bration.  it’s great for all occasions, not just for Birthdays.

The cute little image is from the Zany Zoo Stamp Set.  It’s been coloured & blended with the Watercolour Pencils before being die cut with the Zany Zoo Dies.

Sunny Days DSP | Stampin’ Up! | Sale-a-Bration

G’Day Friends,

Well, where did that time go?  It’s our last week of sharing Brithday Cards with you  over on our FB Pages.  Sure hope you have gotten lots of ideas & inspiration from them.

I found another Sketch Layout over on Pinterest & thought it perfect to showcase the fun Sunny Days DSP.  I will warn you that the colours of Copper Clay, Petal Pink & Shaded Spruce are way out of comfort zone.  Oh, I’ve tossed in a little of Crushed Curry too.

Let’s face it, not all of us like the same colour combinations, so it always a great idea to do this once in awhile.  I do hope you like this combination?

Did you see the sentiment stamped direct onto the Designer Series Paper?  I love doing this when I am able.  It is just another way of using our papers.
