Inspirations in Ink July Blog Hop

G’Day Friends,

Thank you for dropping by & welcome to our monthly Inspirations in Ink Blog Hop.

We’re a small group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world who come together each month to showcase a theme & share inspiration for you to create.

You may be starting with me, Vicky Wright Australia or have come from Theresa’s blog where she shared her lovely project.  Don’t forget you can visit all the other blogs on today’s hop by clicking on the Blog Roll at the bottom of this post.

Our theme this month is Christmas in July.  This is the chance to make a start on your Christmas cards ready to post the end of November, early Decemeber.

As our July Mega PDF Tutorial Bundle is all about the gorgeous Splendid Day Suite, I challenged myself to create a Christmas card with this Collection.  In fact, after doing this one, lots of ideas have popped into my mind so who knows you could be seeing more Christmas cards with this Suite or even mixed with a little of this & a little of that.

I decided to keep my layout fairly simple with a little random stamping with Sahara Sand & Soft Sea Foam Inks.  This layer was then layered onto Sahara Sand & the to a Soft Sea Foam Base Card.

The sentiment is from Inspired Thoughts, stamped wth Sahara Sand Ink before being die cut with the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

My card today is totally different to what I’ve been sharing but hey that is a good thing, right?  I’ve only used a small piece of the lovely Designer Series Paper too.  In saying that, this layout is perfect for using up small amounts of Paper.

The stem was inked with Pear Pizzazz Ink while the flower in Orchid Oasis Ink prior to fussy cutting the images.

I was finished off with a few Orchid Oasis Decorative Matte Dots.

Kylie’s International Blog Highlights

G’Day Friends,

Today I am hopping along with Kylie’s International Blog Hop for July.  This is a hop where Demonstrators from all around the world chose to take part highlighting all our lovely product.  If this is the first time visiting my blog, thank you so much for dropping by.

You are able to vote for my card Here or by clicking on the photo below.

Thank You is our theme for the hop.  Many of us don’t take the time to thank the ones we love or care about.  It can be the simple things that they do for us each day or big things that they have done recently.  It is so important to say thank you and show our appreciation for the hard work of others and the kindness that they show.

I love creating this type of card & posting them off in the mail or leaving them in my neighbours letterboxes.  Do you know of anyone you can this type of card to?  I’m sure they would appreciate it.

I’ve been playing with the gorgeous Splendid Day Suite from the new Mini & wow, are you going to love creating with it too!   It’s simply stunning & perfect for all occasions.

At first the main image was stamped onto Basic White but after putting the card together I decided it needed a little something else as it was too flat.  I then stamped the same image onto scrap Basic White, coloured & blended with Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Combo, finishing off with the Clear Wink of Stella.

After die cutting the image with the Splendid Stems Dies, it was adhered over the top of the original image with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Much better I think.

The sentiment is from one of my favourites – Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set.  Not only is it perfect for all occasions but the font seems to suit all cards.

If you live in Australia, click on the photo below to purchase this Suite.  Don’t forget to use the July Host Code – HXQEXPCS –  if your order is under $250.

  • All orders receive a Handmade Card & a PDF Tutorial.
  • Orders over $50 receive a Handmade Card plus an exclusive Megal Splendid Day PDF Tutorial Bundle or you able to purchase this Tutorial Bundle HERE.

Splendid Day Suite = $145.75

Belle & I were out & about early on our walk this morning.  In fact, it was still dark when we left home, but by the time we hit the beach, I was struck with the most amazing sunrise with the sun just starting to appear.  Can I just say, most days the sunrise is amazing but some more so than others.

As I sat down to create my card, I knew I wanted to try & capture the image into my card.  I think I have!

The circle was die cut with the Layering Circles Dies before being embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  To create the scene, the images were stamped onto a piece of Bsaic White Cardstock before being adhered to the back of the circle.

The sentiment is from the Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set.

I randomly selected a piece of the lovely Simply Marblevous Paper – Level 1 from Sale-a-Bration & then had to decide what colours to use so I opted for Garden Green & Gorgeous Grape.

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

The sentiment is from the Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set, stamped onto Basic White in Garden Green Ink & die cut with the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

The larger butterfly from the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set was stamped in Gorgeous Grape Ink, die cut with the matching Nature’s Thoughts Dies bfeore being adhered to the left side of the sentiment.

The 2 little buttterflies have been die cut from Blushing Bride Cardstock with Nature’s Thoughts Dies before being randomly adhered to the card front.

The card has been finished off with Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Now onto today’s card!

It is one I created during our 12 Days of Christmas – #12daysofchristmas – over in our World Card Making Fb Group.  We have just finished the 12 days & all in time for Christmas.

This is a fun technique that the lovely Annette from the Stampin with the Bees shared with us where we played with our White Craft Ink.  I haven’t played with this fun technique for so long & it was great to see how the White looked on our cards.

To create my simple & easy card, I dragged the White Craft ink over a piece of Night of Navy Cardstock, let it dry before adhering it to a Thick Basic White Card Base.

I then adhered a snowflake from the Wonderful Snowflakes Embellishments to the Card Front with a Mini Glue Dot.  I tied a large bow from the Silver Twine prior to adhering it to the centre of the snowflake with a Mini Glue Dot.

The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of Basic White Cardstock in Night of Navy Ink, die cut with the Layering Circles Dies & adhered over the bow & snowflake with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

To complete the card I randomly adhered Sequins from the Subtle Shimmer Sequins to the Card Front.

Easy peasy, right?

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!
