Butterfly Brilliance

G’Day Stampers,

Today I am sharing with you a card I created sometime ago but have never gotten round to sharing it with you.

Butterflies!  I love seeing them in my garden, flying out & in the flowers & plants  Some of them bright while others not so but all very beautiful just the same.

The butterflies have been stamped onto Basic White in Bermuda Bay, chopped into 3’s prior to adhering to a piece of Blushing Bride.  I didn’t go how these colours would suite but I am liking them.

Randomly chopping my layers & DSP into pieces is one of my favourite ways of creating my cards.  So what do I do this time round after stamping my image?  Chop into 3’s, of course.

The central butterfly is from the now retired Butterfly Bijou DSP.  I love that we have images on some of our DSP that also coordinate with our Dies.

To download a free PDF Tutorial, all you have to do is click on the link below.  It includes both A4 – Metric & Imperial plus Letter size measurements.  Of course we can’t forget the List of Products to create your project.

Happy Stamping!

Celebrate Sunflowers #3

G’Day Friends,

I do hope you all had a lovely weekend.

I am a little late in sharing my 3rd project with you featuring the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle.

I am not normally a green person but I am loving the colour combination with this one.  I’m not sure if it is the touch of Pumpkin Pie in the sunflower or what it may be.

I’ve teamed Mint Macaron, Old Olive with touches of Pumpkin Pie & Soft Suede to create this one.

Sometimes we don’t know where our creations are heading but we keep pushing on with them so that the end result is as much a surprise to us as it is to you.

I’ve completed the card with a couple of Holiday Rhinestones.

Celebrate Sunflowers #2

G’Day Friends,

I have another project for you today using the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle.

In fact it is one I took from the brand new Catalogue due to go live 4 May.

Again, I’ve used my Blending Brushes to blend Polished Pink Ink over a piece of Linen Cardstock – both new products in the Catalogue Cardstock left over.

It was then layered onto a piece of Basic White & then to a Mint Macaron Base Card.

The sentiment was stamped in Evening Evergreen Ink – new In-Colour – direct onto a piece of Mint Macaron before being die cut with the Tasteful Labels Dies.

A piece of Soft Sea Foam Cardstock was randomly stamped in Soft Sea Foam Ink with the small leaves from the Celebrate Sunflowers prior to being adhere to the back of the sentiment shape.

A piece of Flowers for Every Season Ribbon was then adhered to the back of the panel with Mini Glue Dots.

The sunflower shape was die cut from a piece of Basic White with the Sunflower Dies & then adhered to the centre of the Card Font before the panel adhered over the middle of the sunflower shape with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The card was completed by randomly adhering Pearls to the Card Front.

Celebrate Sunflowers

G’Day Friends,

Thanks so much for popping in today!  It is always very much appreciated.

Today I thought I would do something a little different & share with you a project with one of the Bundles I love – Celebrate Sunflowers!

In fact, you will be happy to know that I will be sharing projects I’ve created with this Bundle all week just for you.

I was playing around with my Blending Brushes the other day & had a spare piece of Cardstock left over.  So as not to waste it, I thought it perfect to create a simple card to share with you today.

A piece of Basic White Cardstock has been blended with Bumblebee Ink & a Blending Brush.

I temp adhered this piece to a piece of Basic White Card prior to stamping the large sunflower direct onto the blended area plus ensuring that part of the image stamped over onto the Basic White Cardstock too.

To create a mask, I stamped the same image onto scrap paper prior to fussy cutting along the stamped lines.

This mask was temp adhered to the stamped image prior to stamping the single leaf image around the sunflower in Early Espresso Ink.

I carefully removed the mask & the sponged Cardstock before adhering the panel to a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock.

I adhered this piece to the partially stamped Basic White ensuring that all images are matched in perfectly or as close as can be.

The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set & was stamped straight onto the Basic White layer in Early Espresso prior to adhering to a Bumblebee Base Card.

The card was completed by adhering 5 x Bumblebee Enamel Dots to the Card Front.

Tip – You could always die cut a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock with the Sunflowers Dies & add to the top of the stamped sunflower.

If you have enjoyed my card today, be sure to pop back in a couple of days when I will be sharing my 2nd project with you.

Ok enough of that, let’s get onto today’s card.

Today’s card is one that I’ve created with the lovely new Butterfly Brilliance Collection which goes live today until the beginning of May.  I am loving this collection & much to my surprise am enjoying creating for a class around this Collection but I am getting off the beaten  track so to speak.

I embossed a piece of Mint Macaron with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder prior to adhering to a Just Jade Base Card.

A piece of the Butterfly Bijou DSP was trimmed down prior to adhering to a piece of Basic White & then to the top part of the Card Front.

I die cut the stitched shape from Basic White with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, stamped the sentiment from the Happy Thoughts Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, die cut with the Layering Circles Dies & adhered to the centre of the stitched shape with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  This was then adhered to the centre of the DSP panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals too.

I inked up the butterfly of choice, stamped onto a piece of Basic White in Memento Tuxedo Ink prior to colouring & blending with Mini Macaron Stampin’ Blends.

The image was die cut with the outline die from Butterfly Wings Dies before being adhered to the bottom of the die cut circle/shape with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on bottom of the wings only.

To complete the card I randomly adhere Shaded Spruce Holiday Rhinestone to the front of the card.

During March we are showcasing this lovely collection, so be sure to subscribe for more ideas on creating with this collection.

G’Day Stampers,

Thanks so much for dropping in today.Daisy-Lane-2---Inside

I’ve been playing with the Daisy Lane Stamp Set the past few days & as it was still sitting on my desk I decided to have a little play but try & do something a little different.

I then teamed it up with the Daisy Delight Stamp Set along with the Daisy Punch & the Medium Daisy Punch.  The sentiment is from the You Always Deliver Stamp Set.

As I mentioned, it is a little different but I am more than happy with the final result.

G’Day Stampers,

Thanks so much for popping in today!

I am a little late in posting this but as the saying goes “Better late, than never!”Dasy-Lane---Inside

Today’s share is one I created yesterday while I had the Daisy Lane Stamp Set sitting on my desk.  I’ve teamed it up with the lovely Rococo Rose Cardstock, Ink & DSP.  A little Crumb Cake has been picked up from the Scalloped Linen Ribbon.

I’ve left a sentiment off on purpose as sometimes I like to send my cards out “Just Because”.

It is also a reminder to ourselves not to forget our fantastic Annual Catalogue during Sale-A-Bration time.

It’s a short post today but one that I hope you have enjoyed & it has inspired you to create your own. To purchase any of the products used in this project, all you have to do is click on the links above & they will take you to my Online Shop!

Stamp N’ Hop Blog Hop

G’Day Stampers,

Welcome to the Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop for February!February-2020---Colouring

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

This month we are showcasing Colouring which can come in all forms.  Have you checked out the wonderful selection of Colouring Tools available in our Annual Catalogue?

Daisy-Lane---InsideYou may have arrived from Sue’s blog where she shared her lovely creationIf you are starting from my blog, all you have to do is click on the next arrow below to continue.

I’ve been playing with a lot of older stamps, etc of late.  Sometimes I think our Annual Catalogue gets a little lost with all our new product from the Minis & Sale-A-Bration which is why I went with the Daisy Lane Stamp Set, Daisy Punch & Medium Daisy Punch which is also available as a Bundle.  They have been teamed up with the Woven Threads DSP.

I love Sunflowers, Daisies & Gerberas!  I think they are bright, happy flowers which is another reason I wanted to try & do something with this set.  The flowers have been inked with Highland Heather, lightly stamped off once to achieve a close Purple Posy colour & then Pretty Peacock applied to the inner petals with a Sponge Dauber.  Don’t they look pretty & soft?
