Kylie’s International Blog Hop

 

Bloom-by-Bloom-7---Close-Up

G’Day Stampers.

Once again I am taking part in Kylie’s International Highlights Hop for May!  Where has this year gone?  If this is the first time visiting my blog, thank you so much for dropping by.

23795742_1526957270690636_5772889941271498061_nEncouragement 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.

First up, I have a confession to make – this is not the stamp set that I started out with but I’m happy with the result.  The layout is what I had in mind as I’ve cased myself from long ago so it isn’t all bad.  Be sure to check back in a few day’s time to see what I was going to create.

For my card today, I’ve used the Happiness Blooms DSP along with the Bloom by Bloom Bloom-by-Bloom-7---InsideStamp Set & the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots.  The Cardstock colours of Night of Navy, Call Me Clover & Whisper White have been taken from the colours in the DSP.  The Inks of Night of Navy, Calypso Coral, Call Me Clover  & Pineapple Punch come from the DSP too.

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

Kylie’s International Blog Hop

Detailed-Dragonfly-1---ClosG’Day Stampers.

Once again I am taking part in Kylie’s International Highlights Hop for March.  Thank you so much for everyone who voted for me last month.  It is always very much appreciated.

This month the theme is Encouragement.

I love sending out encouragement cards or “Just Because”.  Isn’t this one of the reasons we create?  Do you know of anyone you can send encouragement to?  Maybe a Get Well Soon – or WOW, You are Amazing, even a Thank You card?  I’m sure they would appreciate it.  My card went off in the mail yesterday & is winging its way overseas.

For my card today, I decided to have a play with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits along with the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set but of course I didn’t end up using the stamp onlyDetailed-Dragonfly-1---Insi the Thinlits.  The sentiment is from Perennial Birthday which has some of the nicest sentiments.

By clicking on the link below you will be able to download a free tutorial to create your own card.  The tutorial includes both the products used & the measurements (metric & imperial).

Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop

DSP---Share-What-You-Love--

G’Day Stampers,

Today I am taking part in a brand new blog hop, well new to me although I have been a member for a few months.  It is a group of SU! Demos from all over the world sharing July---DSPtheir love of Stampin’ Up!.  You are able to join us if you like, but we do ask that you are a current SU! Demo & that you use current products, no matter what skill level you may be.

Our theme this month is our Favourite DSP.  There are so many gorgeous new DSP in the catalogue that it was very hard to choose.  I literally just closed my eyes & let my fingers do the “walking” so to speak & they come up the gorgeous Share What You Love Specialty DSP.

Love-What-You-Do-1My card is one I often create as I love the layout & it is just so quick & simple.  It looks great cut into how may pieces you wish although you have to ensure you match them up when adhering to Cardstock.

To create my card I team it up with the Pearlized Doilies & the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls – So Saffron.  The DSP has been layered onto Basic Black Cardstock & then to the So Saffron Base Card.

My 2nd card is created exactly the same way using another piece of the same DSP.

By clicking on the link below, you will be able to download your free tutorial to create your own card.  The tutorial includes a list of supplies & measurements (metric & imperia

As from Monday next week I will be showcasing our gorgeous DSP with lots of lovely ideas each day, so be sure to pop on back to check them out!

Today Blooms just for You

Daisy-Delight---Close-Up

G’Day Stampers,

Today I am sharing with you one of the cards we created last week in our class.  It is using the lovely Daisy Delight Stamp Set the Daisy Punch & the equally lovely Delightful Daisy DSP. The DSP is retiring at the end of June so if you want it I would suggest youDaisy-Delight---Inside grab it now.

It’s a simple little card but I don’t think you need a lot with this Suite as the product does all the work for you.

To download your free tutorial to create your own card, please click on the link below.  It includes all measurements (metric & imperial) plus the list of products used to create the card.

Congratulations

Bold-Butterfly---Close-Up

I did mention a little while ago that I would be sharing with you lots of cards created with retiring product.  Today is one such card although we did create it in one of our classes a few weeks ago.

It’s a very simple card but I think the techniques speak for themselves – Sponging, Heat Embossing & Dazzling Diamonds.  We teamed the techniques up with the Butterflies Thinlits.

If you want to grab these Thinlits before they are gone, then please check out the Last-Chance Products – Occasions & Annual (which are selling very fast) before they are gone & gone forever..

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Crafting-Forever-2---Close-

When I saw the sketch over at Fresh Made Sketches, I had to play along.  It is so clean & simple, but sometimes these are the hardest ones to create.  Anyhow, I think I have succeeded & yes I am still playing with the Color Theory DSP.

My card is very simple but I think it works best with this type of DSP so it fitted inuntitled perfectly with the sketch.  Thank you so much ladies for a great challenge & getting me creating out of my comfort zone.

Be sure to pop on over to FMS to check out what the design team have created along with all the lovely entries.

Here’s To Celebrating You!

Perennial-Birthday-Yellow--

My card today is one I created some time ago but have never gotten round to sharing with you.  I thought I had better do that before it goes off in the post tomorrow.

It’s a very simple little card but one with a bit of a punch as the background has been created using the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set & coloured with Stampin’ Blends.  Some of the Rhinestones have been coloured with the Dark Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blend.  The centre was die cut with the square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits, layered onto 2 pieces of Whisper White & then adhered back into place – Eclipse Technique.

If you click on the link below, you will be able to download a tutorial to create your very own card.

When shopping Online, to use the new Host Code for April.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Petal-Passion---Close-Up

I’ve been playing with the Petal Passion DSP over the last couple of days.  All I can say is “WOW”.  Loving it!  I have even managed to create cards for 2 classes using the DSP & the coordinating Stamp Set – Petal Palette.  I’ve used the Watercolour Pencils to colour along with the Stampin’ Blends which is how I’ve coloured today’s card.

I cut a piece of the DSP & randomly colouring the flowers with Calypso Coral, Pink Pirouette & Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Combos.  The leaves were coloured with a Petal-Passion-Colouring---Ilittle Light Daffodil Delight & then with Old Olive Combo.  The background has been coloured in Light Pool Party.  Colouring the background made the flowers seem like they are floating.

Candy Dots were randomly scattered around the card front to finish it off but you could easily replace them with current product, eg Pearl Basic Jewels, Faceted Gems, etc.
