Celebrate Sunflowers #4

G’Day Stampers,

Thank you for dropping by today.  Your visits never go unnoticed!Celebrate-Sunflowers-5---In

Today is #4 in our Celebrate Sunflowers week, although you may need your sunnies as it is very bright!

I have used a piece of the lovely Flowers for Every Season DSP & teamed it up with Magenta Madness (new 2020-2022 In Colour) & Real Red CardstockA bit of a different colour combination but I took the colours for my card from the DSP & much to my surprise, I am loving the colour combination.

The sentiment has been stamped in Real Red Ink while the flowers have been coloured & blended with Daffodil Delight & Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Combos.

Celebrate Sunflowers #2

G’Day Stampers,

Today I am sharing a 2nd card created with the lovely Flowers for Every Season Celebrate-Sunflowers-4---InSuite which includes the Jar of Flowers Bundle & the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle.

This card is all about the lovely Flowers for Every Season DSP.  No images except for the sentiment which is from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set & stamped in Night of Navy Ink2020-2022 In Colours are not avialable at the moment.

As the DSP is so bright I thought why not let this lovey DSP “shine”!  It also means it’s a very quick 5 minute card but hey we need these sometimes.

Kylie’s International Blog Hop

G’Day Stampers.

It’s been sometime but I have finally managed to create a card for Kylie’s International Blog Hop for February!  If this is the first time visiting my blog, thank you so much for dropping by.

23795742_1526957270690636_5772889941271498061_nThank You is our theme for the hop.  I love creating this type of card & posting them off in the mail.  Do you know of anyone you can this type of card to?  I’m sure they would appreciate it.

I must admit that the final result looks absolutely nothing like I set out to create.  It just sort of took it own path but then it didn’t help with me chopping, chopping, chopping!

I decided to have a play with the oh so tropical Timeless Tropical stamp Set, along with Timeless-Tropical---Insidethe In The Tropics Dies which are available as a Bundle too.  I can see myself using this a lot in the next couple of months.

Be sure to head on over to Kylie’s Blog to vote for me.  While there, check out all the lovely creations created by other Demos who are playing along this month.  Yes, you can vote for your favourites while there.

Don’t forget to download the tutorial by clicking on the link below.  It includes all Measurements – imperial & metric plus a list of products used to create this card.

Floral Phrases

Heya Stampers,

I am showing you a card I saw on Pinterest last week with this fold, so I decided to sit myself down & play around trying to create the fold.  Thank you Lyssa for your 20170506_133036bloginspiration.

It showcases the gorgeous “Floral Boutique” DSP which is retiring at the end of May.  I have managed to finish about of the DSP for my card with just little bits & pieces left.  I’ve challenged myself to create a card using those pieces, so be sure to bop back in a couple of days to check out what I’ve done.

The fold actually looks harder then it really is.  I was quite surprised at how quick & easy it was to complete this fold as it looks harder than it really is.

Now is the perfect time to let you know that I have updated my Retired Products ( ex the current products retiring), so be sure to head on over to my “Retired Product 4 Sale” Page to check it out.  There is still more to add but that will be done over the next week.  A lot of it has already gone!

I think I will be creating more of these fun “Fanfare Fun Fold” Cards especially for classes.  It is also a great way of using up your retiring DSP.

By clicking on the link above the photo, you are able to download a Free Tutorial to create your own card using this fold.

Don’t forget to check out all the great products on the 2017 Retiring List by hopping onMay over to my Shop.  Stampin’ Up! have been updating items on the list and they are selling fast!  When placing an order Online, don’t forget to use May’s Host Code.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

220. A Special Note – Floral Phrases

20170506_133011blog

Hey Chick, Thanks

If you have seen the 2017 SAB Catalogue, you will have seen the great little “Hey, Chick” Stamp Set.  They are just so cheeky & I will admit I am a lover of chooks.  Today’s post is showcasing this set once again.  In fact, I started out casing the Card on Page 16 but it soon took off on its own.  It was perfect for a couple of Thank You Cards I needed this month.

You can find another card using the same set here.

Yep, I’ve used the fantastic Watercolour Pencils from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.  As you have probably seen over the internet, we are all crazy about them.  Be sure to add them to your supplies, you too will love them.

By clicking on the link below, you will be able to download a tutorial to create your own card.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Jar of Flowers

I actually decided to have a play this week & the challenge over at Freshly fms267Made Sketches popped up.   As it’s been a little while since I’ve done one  with them I thought it the perfect opportunity to do so.  I actually had “Falling Flowers” sitting on my desk left over from another project.

Getting out of my comfort zone, I  decided to go “Bright” which are not my “go to colours” or “first cab off the rank” but hey it’s a good thing to try new colours.  I also fliped the sketch on its side to challenge myself a little more.

I stamped the middle jar from “Jar of Love” Stamp Set onto a piece of Whisper White Card in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink before repeating it onto a scrap of paper & then fussy cutting for my mask.  The mask was then temp adhered to the stamped jar before stamping a jar either side.  This creates the effect of the middle jar being in front of the other 2.  “Thanks” was stamped inside the jar with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

The lids were stamped direct onto scrap Whisper White Card in Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise & Daffodil Delight Inks before being die cut with the corresponding “Everyday Jars” Framelits by running through the Big Shot & adhering to the tops – Melon Mambo & Tempting Turquoise with Multipurpose Adhesive Glue while Stampin’ Dimensionals were used on the Daffodil Delight Lid.

The Leaves were stamped direct onto 2 of the jars in Old Olive Ink.  The Flowers were stamped direct onto more scrap Whisper White Card 20161219_132907_resizedblog(love it when I get to use some of my scraps) in Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight & Melon Mambo Inks before die cutting with the coordinating Framelits.  I then decided to stamp & die cut another small leaf  only because I had made a slight smudge – don’t you love it when you can cover it & no-one will ever know.  As the Flowers are 2-Step Stamping, I stamped off once prior to stamping the 1st image.  The stamped Whisper White Card was then layered onto a piece of Basic Black Card leaving a small edges showing around 3 sides & a larger one on the LHS.

As I thought the card looked a little bare, I then decided to add a few flowers down the side so I stamped a couple of leaf images direct onto a piece of Whisper White Card & then layered the Jar piece over the top allowing the leafs to overlap a little prior to layering onto a piece of Basic Black Card & then to the Base Card – Whisper White.

To finish the card, the Flowers were randomly adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals before Rhinestone Basic Jewels were adhered to the centres.

I’m loving the bright colours of the card especially teamed up with Basic Black.

Why not head over to Freshly Made Sketches & play along.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Thanks So Much

I was playing around the other day & decided to have a play with Washi Tape & try & use it in an entirely different way.  Mind you, I am still working on that project.

While playing, I had a light bulb moment!  Why not try & use it with the Brick Wall EF?  Out came the “Cherry on Top” Washi Tape (Retired) & off I went playing & cutting.

As I wanted the Washi Tape to be the star, I kept the remainder of the card very clean & simple.  Don’t forget, you could even use scraps of DSP, Ribbon or even Cardstock.  You will also need a little bit of patience, but I think it is worth it in the end.

A Little Thanks

I’ve used the Emboss Resist Technique on my card today.  It happens to be one of the 7  August - TTTechniques from our current Technique Treats, along with the Double Embossing Technique.  I will be honest & say that this is one of my favourite techniques.  All kinds of possibilities.  I’ve also used the “Swirly Bird” Bundle.

I wasn’t too sure what I was going to do with the piece once I had created it, but then decided to cut it into pieces to create a Mosaic Background.  I’m very happy with the card now.

For a Free Tutorial on how I created my card, please click on the link above the photo.  It also includes all the supplies & measurements (Imperial & Metric).

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
