Tasteful Touches

G’Day stampers,

I suddenly remembered that I hadn’t shared my 2nd card from a few weeks ago using our Decorative Masks.

I find sponging one of my relaxing ways to create cards & of course, each time you will achieve a different look, especially with the Decorative Masks.  So many possibilities.

Once again, I’ve used the gorgeous Tasteful Touches Stamp Set.  It would have to be one of my favourites, although this time round I’ve gone with Rococo Rose, Smokey Slate & Petal Pink.

You can see the original card here.

I also have a video that we did live when I created this card which you are able to see below the card.

Tasteful Touches

G’Day Stampers,

Thanks so much for popping by today.  It is always very much appreciated.Tasteful-Textures---Inside

Today I thought I would share with you one of the cards I created a few weeks ago for a FB Live.  You can join us in our Stamp, Ink, Paper Live group if you wish.

I’m not sure about you but I find sponging one of the most relaxing things to do in crafting besides fussy cutting & colouring lol.  There are so many possibilities & so much you are able to do with Ink & Sponges.  Add in a Decorative Mask & well that opens another door with lots more possibilities.

To see how you to create a card with Basic Sponging, be sure to check out the PDF Tutorial over on the Technique Tutorial Page.  It is right at the bottom, #1.

I’ve used the gorgeous Tasteful Touches Stamp Set to create my card.  It would have to be one of my favourites.

Be sure to pop back in a few days, as I have another to share with you.

Stamp n’ Hop

G’Day Stampers,

Welcome to the Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop for June!June-2020---Hello-to-the-20

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.

I know for a fact we are all loving the gorgeous product in the new Annual Catalogue, so this month we are showcasing just that – the new Annual Catalogue.  Get ready to see everyone’s beautiful creations.

Tasteful-Textures---InsideYou may have arrived from Sandra’s blog where she shared her lovely creation.  If you are starting from my blog, all you have to do is click on the next arrow below to continue or the case of getting a little lost, there is a Blog Roll below the arrow!

I received the Tasteful Touches Suite in my pre-order & hadn’t had a chance to play.  While cleaning up, I discovered the Decorative Masks so I decided “why not?”

The colours are Highland Heaher, Gorgeous Grape &  Garden Green.  In fact, I think I can see myself using these colours a lot more often.

I don’t have a tutorial for you today BUT I do have another card to share with you later on in the week that will have the tutorial & a video, so be sure to check back then.

Decorative Masks

G’Day Stampers,

Thanks for dropping by today.

I’ve been playing with our Decorative Masks in the past few weeks prepping for a Technique Class.  After creating my background, I was sort of stuck for ideas, so Pinterest to the rescue.  Thank you so much for your inspiration.  Would you believe the colours were the same as I had selected for my sponging!!!!!

I haven’t changed anything except for the sentiment which is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set.

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.

Oh, Hello Friend

I have been playing lots with the Embossing Paste the last few weeks – loving this stuff &Oh-So-Eclectic-inside also working on a couple of Creative Card Classes.  One of the classes will be using the Paste, so be sure to book your spot.

I teamed the paste up with my new Oh, So Eclectic Bundle which only come in the post last week & has been sitting on my desk waiting & waiting.

Creative Cards are held the 1st & 2nd Tuesday of the month or the 1st & 3rd Saturday of the month…..  You can find all the details on the Classes/Workshop Page.

My card today is so way out of my comfort zone with all the oranges of Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, So Saffaron & Garden Green.  I am so happy with the card that I have actually decided to include it in one of the classes in the next Oh,-So-Eclectic---close-upmonth or so.  Mind you, it doesn’t look much but it has taken me hours to finally create it what with all the playing & changing of colours, but hey that is the fun part of creating.

The flowers have been coloured & blended with my good ol’ Blender Pen.  I don’t know what I would do without it.  I then highlighted the flowers with a little Clear Wink of Stella.  It brings out he colours so much more.

The leaves were stamped using the Memento Tuxedo Black Ink & again coloured with Old Olive Ink & Blender Pen.  The Old Olive is a nice contrast against the Garden Green background.

I will let you in on a little secret, the circle was not originally on the card which meant the flowers were sort of lost in the background, so I sponged a die cut circle in So Saffron, popped them on & then onto the card.  Made all the difference as it now looks like a completely different card.

I’m not gonna be mean & not share the tutorial today, so don’t forget to click on the link below to grab it so you, too can create a card.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Happy Birthday

A couple of weeks ago I created 2 cards using the fun “Bike Ride” Bundle.  Well today I amBike-Ride---Iside showing you the 3rd card created using basically the same supplies, colours & layout.  The differences being I’ve used Chocolate Chip as my Base Card, Embossing Paste & Crumb Cake & Chocolate Chip Ink Re-Fills along with Sunshine Sayings for my greeting.

To achieve my “footpath”,  I added a 3 small amounts of Embossing Paste onto the Silicone Craft Sheet, added a very tiny drop of Crumb Cake & Chocolate Chip Ink Refills to 2 of the amounts but not really mixing them.

I placed the “Brick” Decorative Mask to the bottom part of a piece of Whisper White Card, Bike-Ride---Embossing-Pasteapplied the White Embossing Paste followed by the Crumb Cake & then the Chocolate Chip to the Mask.  I found doing it this way, I had a more of a distinctive look with the colours.

The “Happy Birthday” was stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White CS, punched with the Classic Label Punch & adhered behind the bike to look like a “flag”.

I’m finding this Bundle lots of fun with lots of ideas popping into my head as I create my cards.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
