Terracotta Tile Day #2

G’Day Friends,

Are you ready for Day 2 of showcasing the lovely rich Terracotta  Tile  2019-2021  In  Colour?

Again, I’ve gone with the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP but this time round teamed it up with Early Espresso & Level 1, Heal Your Heart Stamp Set.

Can you tell I am a little obsessed with this Set.  I just love the font as well as the sentiments.

This time I’ve randomly chopped m DSP into 3’s prior to adhering to the Early Espresso Cardstock.

When adhering the DSP, ensure that you are matching the pattern of the DSP & if you have to chop, chop from the outer edges of the DSP so that you keep your pattern.  I love creating & using my DSP this way!

The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso Ink onto Basic White, die cut with the Layering Circles Dies & adhered to a Early Espresso scallop circle which was die cut with the same dies.

It’s a fairly simple card but one that i wanted the Terracotta Tile & the DSP to shine.

I finished the card off with a couple of the cute little Terracotta Tile Butterfly Gems.

Seaside Notions

G’Day Stampers,

Thanks for dropping by today.  Seaside-Notions---Inside

Today I am sharing with you a simple card created with the lovely Seaside Notions Stamp Set.  This is one of my favourite sets but then again, let’s face it, there are lots that are my favourite lol.

It was teamed up with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder to create the “subtle” background.

I also use this layout for a lot of my cards.  With new Stamps, DSP, etc you forget that it is the same layout as it changes the card completely.

It is also one of the bonus cards I shared in our June Stamp & Card Club.

Stamp N’ Hop Blog Hop

Sheltering-Tree---Close-Up

G’Day Stampers,

Thank you for joining me today as I am once again playing along with the May  Stamp ‘N Hop blog hop where we are saying goodbye to the 2018-2019 Annual Catalgue.  This way we get to play with some of our favourites one last timeMay-2019---Goodby-to-the-ol .

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

If you have come from seeing Jenn’s lovely creation, thank you for visiting.  It is much appreciated.

I wanted to play with Lovely as a Tree but of course when the time come couldn’t put my hand on it.  So I opted for Sheltering Tree which is another retiring.  I’ve teamed it up with the 2017-2019 In Colours which are also going!

The tree was stamped in Fresh Fig – only in error – but I love it!  The leaves were inked in Lemon Lime Twist & then Fresh Fig & Tranquil Tide daubed on with a Sponge Dauber.

If you have started from me, then next up is Tracy.  In the event that you get lost, there is a Roll Call of everyone playing along below or you can click on the NEXT ARROW to be taken to the next blog.

Thinking of You

Heartfelt-Blooms---Close-Up

My post today is a very simple one but I think the colours of Fresh Fig & Flirty Flamingo make it pop!  I wasn’t sure how the 2 colours would work together but I think they compliment each other.  It is also one of the cards we created in our class last Friday.

This set is from 2018 Sale-A-Bration & is the new Stampin’ Up! “DistINKive” Stamp Set!  The floral image lays down your ink at different opacities giving the image of a photograph.  If you haven’t seen the video, check it out here –

316. Thinking of You – Heartfelt Blooms

2018 SAB, Heartfelt Blooms, 2017-2019 In Colours, Free Tutorial, Vicky Wright, Stampin' Up!

Thinking of You

I thought I would share with you a card I did some time ago to highlight our Technique TreatsSponging but never got round to sharing it.

To create my card I sponged Watermelon Wonder, Hello Honey & Tip Top Taupe Inks directly onto a piece of Whisper White Card. I then spritzed water over the top with a Stampin’ Sprizter.  The trees from “Lovely as a Tree” were stamped directly over the top using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

I then layered the sponged card onto a piece of Tip Top Taupe Card before layering direct onto a piece of Whisper White. The sentiment was stamped direct onto the Whisper White in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

A piece of Linen Thread was wrapped twice around the card tying a small bow before being layered onto Base Card – Watermelon Wonder.

It’s a very simple card but one with a bit of a punch, I think.008-(3)wm-blog

Hello Honey has since been retired but you could subsitite the colour for Delighful Dijon or Crushed Curry.

Don’t forget, you are able to purchase this Technique from our Technique Teats Page to create 4 more cards using the Sponging Technique & “Lovely as a Tree” Stamp Set.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Sheltering Tree

My card today was one we created in our Technique Class some weeks ago – Block Stamping!  The class loved it!

I saw a similar card on Pinterest some time ago, but of course when I went to link back, couldn’t find it, but thank you so much for your inspiration.  I did change mine a little, including the layout.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Thinking of You…

I created this card for a challenge, but also with a friend in mind.  When I went to post it to the challenge site, I couldn’t remember what challenge it was.  Is it just me or does this happen to anyone else?

It is not one of those cards we like to create but none the less, we do them.  I thought I would add “Thinking of You” instead of leaving blank or “With Sympathy”.

Again, I don’t have any measurements or tutorial, as I was in a hurry to get it in the post.  However, I did consult my Colour Coach for my colours.

I embossed a piece of Pool Party CS with the Decorative Dots EF, wrapped a piece of Whisper White Stitched Satin Ribbon along the left hand side, prior to layering to a piece of Whisper White & finally to the Base Card – Old Olive.  I tied a small bow & adhered to top of Ribbon with a Glue Dot.

I used the gorgeous Hostess Set – Floral Wings.  The butterfly was stamped n Pool Party, flowers in Perfect Plum & the leaves in Old Olive Inks prior to running through the Big Shot with the corresponding Bold Butterfly Thinlits.

I decided that I was going to inlay my Butterfly back into a piece of Card, so I then placed the Oval Framelits over the top of the cut out Butterfly by running it through the Big Shot. I adhered a piece of scrap Whisper White Card to the cut out Oval Butterfly shape & adhered the stamped butterfly into the shape ensuring it all matched in.

The whole piece was then adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White in Memento Black Ink, cut into a Banner Shape one end & adhere to the Card Front.

I completed the card by adhering Pearls down the side of the sentiment as well as the butterfly centre.

I hope you like my card today.  Be sure to check back in a couple of days for my 2nd one.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Wetlands…

… meets the great Technique – Masking!

Today’s card is one we created last Sunday in our Technique Class.  I decided that we would play with a few Masking Techniques – so many options.  The class loved the simple, yet effective card we created AND it could be used for make or female.

This class will be repeated next month, so be sure to check out the dates on the Classes/Workshop page.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Fine Feathers

For our card in Crafty Creations this afternoon, I took my inspiration from a set of cards I found on Pinterest some time ago.

I did add a couple more layers – Soft Sky & Early Espresso.  The ladies loved how a simple little card could have such a huge impact.

I also love how I can reuse some of my favourite stamp sets which have now retired & “Fine Feathers” being one of them.

We used the Emboss Resist Technique to create our card.

Don’t forget, you can create your own card by clicking on the link below.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’.

6-Sided Sampler

I was at a loss the other day & while browsing through the new catalogue, a card from Page 104 jumped out at me.  Why?  I don’t really know but I loved the simple look of the finished card & thought it was a quick easy 5 or 10 minute card.

I decided to go with the same colours or near to the colours as I think – Crumb Cake, Pool Party & Soft Suede to create my card.  I have slowly been going through my room & tiding up things, sorting, tossing, etc & come across a heap of Textured 12 x 12 card stock – Perfect way to use it all!

I also used a Hostess Set from the new Catalogue – Best Thoughts.

As the Butterfly Die was not available in our pre-order selection, I pulled out one that I’ve had for years & before SU!

I will admit this is not a set that has seen much ink, but hopefully in the next 12 months, it will be a set that is inked more regularly & won’t gather dust sitting on the shelf.

Don’t forget the catalogue is fantastic for inspiration & “casing”.  It helps to motivate you to get your creative juices going again.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
