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?

Peaceful Deer

G’Day Friends,

I can’t believe that I’ve made it to Day 8 of my #30daysofchristmascards challenge I set myself.  I will say that I am enjoying the challenge even though they are fairly easy & simple to create, but that is what we want sometime.

You can check all the previous days over on my FB Page.

Today’s card has been created with the lovely Peaceful Deer Stamp Set.  It’s been teamed up with the Pretty Prints DSP from the Annual Catalogue.  I love it when we can use alternative DSP for all occasions, especially Christmas.

The base card is Soft Sea Foam which the Inks are Early Espresso & Garden Green.  The tag is from the Tailor Made Tags Dies.

Love, Santa Tag Kit

G’Day Friends,

Well this month, I have challenged myself to creating 30 Christmas cards/projects in 30 days which will be posted on my FB Page.  The big question is “Can I do it?”

Each Sunday, I will be sending out a Newsletter with a weekly round up of all the projects created for the week.  If you don’t subscribe to my Newsletter, be sure to do so by clicking HERE as I would hate for you to miss out.

Create Weekly #19 with Butterfly Brilliance by Stampin’ Up!

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

Before we get into today’s share, I just wanted to let you know that November’s Stamp & Card Club is now open.  This club is only available via monthly subscription. We’re playing with the Happiness Abounds Stamp Set along with the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper.

For all the information about this club & to subscribe, click on this LINK

Each Sunday I share a Sketch Layout for our group to play with.

Then the next day – Monday, I share a video tutorial showing how I created my card along with a bonus project using the same layout.  It’s a lot of fun, especially great if you are stuck for inspiration.

It is a simple layout although you can make it as hard or asa easy as you like.  In my case, I let the lovely DSP do all the talking & be the star of the show.

I created my card with the Design a Daydream DSP which I teamed up with the lovely Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set & the matching Brilliant Wings Dies.

The Cardstock colours are Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive & Basic White while the Ink is So Saffron & Blackberry Bliss.

The sentiment on the card is from the fun Biggest Wish Stamp Set & one of my go to sets.  I love that you can do so much with it & have a different result each time.

Click HERE to see the original card created in the video.

By clicking on the video below, you will be able to watch how it was created including an alternate idea with the same sketch layout.  That’s 3 different ideas!
