Across the Waves Blog Hop

G’Day Friends,

Thank you so much for hopping by.  It is always very much appreciated.

Each Wednesday Robbie & myself did a little mini hop for you showcasing a particular Stamp Set or Bundle.  Well, I am happy to say that the hop has now gone worldwide.

In saying that, I am excited to say today is our very first worldwide Across the Waves Blog Hop.  On the last Wednesday of each month, a group of current Stampin’ Up Demos will be hopping along with us.  If you have arrived from Robbie‘s blog, welcome!

Our theme for April is all about the males.  As some of us find it hard to create for the males, this is the perfect way to grab ideas & inspirations for the males in your lives.

I do hope you enjoy my project this arvo.  It is a very simple one with a little bit of sponging & a little colouring.

Friends are like Seashells

G’Day Friends,

Thank you so much for dropping by.

My card today is one we created in our Mystery Stamping a couple of weeks ago & thought I would share it with you.

I’ve been playing with the Soft Pastels of late & WOW, WOW, WOW!  I can’t seem to put the things down.

If you haven’t see them in the Annual Catalogue, do yourself a favour & grab them today, as you need these little beauties in your collection.  I love them so much that I’m planning on doing a series of classes with them, but more about that later.

Again it is an easy layout & one which you can use over & over while resulting in a completely different look.  But then again, that is what Mystery Stamping is all about – simple, easy but with a little bit of mystery!!!

Of course, when you have a great layout that you love & use over & over, there is no stopping.  I then shared a 2nd card I created that morning with different supplies.

My 2nd card I shared using the same layout has been created with the lovely limited Waves of the Ocean Collection.  This Collection will no longer be available after May 2.

Cardstock is Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy & Basic White.  The images have been stamped in Soft Suede, Basic Black & NIght of Navy Inks.  Of course the Waves of the Ocean DSP is from the Collection.

I wanted to see if I could create something a little different wih this set using only the grass images.  I think I have achieved it, but you decide for yourself.

I’ve actually used 3 techniques on this card – can you guess what they are?  Check below to find out what they are…..

Feature of the Week – Simply Marbleous DSP #1

I do hope you have all had a great weekend.  If you are anywhere near the waters, please take care.

Thank you to everyone who reached out asking if I was ok & yes all is good as we have not been affected.

I have been playing with the lovely Simply Marbleous DSP from Sale-a-Bration of late & am loving the colours & patterns although I seem to be gearing towards the one side in particular.

This Paper is Level 1 which you can earn for FREE when spending $90!

Not only will I be showcasing the papers, but I will also be showcasing the ever so versatile Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set – perfect for all occasions especially Manly Monday!

First up I had to decide what colours I could use with the Smokey Slate sheet of Paper so I opted for Daffodil Delight, Garden Green with Basic White tossed in too.  Way out of my comfort zone but hey it is always good to try new combinations.

The DSP was randomly chopped into 3 pieces before adhering to a piece of Garden Green Cardstock ensuring that the patterns match in & leaving a small amount of Garden Green around all sides.  This layer was then adhered to a Smokey Slate Base Card.

I stamped a sentiment from Inspired Thoughts onto scrap Basic White with Smokey Slate Ink prior to die cutting with the Messages Dies & adhering to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped an image from Enjoy the Moment Stamp Set in Daffodil Delight Ink prior to fussy cutting, trimming part of the stem a little & adhering to the top of the sentiment shape with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

To finish the card, I grabbed a couple of the new Classic Matte Dots which are available in the new Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue & adhered these to the front.  I think they finished the card off perfectly.

I wasn’t too sure how this colour combination would work but I have to admit I think they work in well together, don’t you?
