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.

12 Weeks of Christmas – Week 8

G’Day Stampers,

Today is all about Week 8 of our 12 Weeks of Christmas!

My idea for my card today came from Page 24 of the 2019 Holiday Catalogue!  Yep, looksHolly-Jolly-Christmas-2---I nothing like it!

I’ve used the Holly Jolly Christmas Stamp Set along with the Jolly Season Dies which you are able to purchase as a Bundle.  I’ve teamed them up with the lovely Cherry Cobbler Diagonal Stripe Ribbon which are all part of the Night Before Christmas Suite.

It may look very involved but it is very easy to create.

G’Day Stampers,

Today’s post is one I created some time ago but had ever shared.  In fact, over the next week or so, I will be sharing lots of different cards that I have found which have not beenDaisy-Lane-1---Inside posted!

I actually created 2 different versions of this card, same but not the same!  If I remember correctly, I think the card was created for a class.

The stamp is from the lovely Daisy Lane Stamp Set along with the Medium Daisy Punch both of which are available as a Bundle!  The Daisy Punch has also been used for the large daisy.=

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).

To vote for me, head onto Kylie’s Blog.  While there, be sure to check out all the lovely creations created by the other Demos who are playing along this month.

Scrapbooking Global July Blog Hop

G’Day stampers,

Today I am not only taking part in the very first Blog Hop – Scrapbooking Global – Stampin’ Up! but it is Day 4 of my DSP Showcase.  It is a FB Page for anyone who love SU! Products & who scraps.  There are over 3500 members.  If you love Stampin’ Up! & you love to scrap then why not join us.

Thank you for visiting.  You have just arrived from Jessica’s page which means you are36518126_10216049000962426_604109715940573184_n now half way through the hop.  I do hope you are enjoying the pages that everyone has created & getting lots of ideas.

Our Challenge this month was to create our page using the Sketch Layout.  Easy, right?  Well, I thought so to but for the life of me I’ve had heaps of trouble coming up with a page that I liked.  I think I may have been overthinking things which then creates all sorts of hassles.

Those of you that visit my blog, know that I do layouts for my niece & post them down to her.  Sometimes, they include photos, other times they are just the layouts & she selects the photos.  The journaling is mostly all left blank as I love her to write in her own handwriting.  I think it means more this way.

Anyhow my photo is one of Bon & her brother Jesse who was married in Argentina in April this year.  They are very close which I tried to capture in the layout including the colours in Bon’s dress & the black of Jess’ suite.  I’ve kept my page very simple as I didn’t want to take away from her gorgeous lace dress.  I have been a little loose with my layout Scrapbook---Fun-Times---Cloas it is a little different to the sketch.

I lightly sponged Balmy Blue onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock before randomly stamping the image from Touches of Texture & a piece of the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper was adhered top right hand corner.  This paper suited her dress perfectly!

The photo was mounted onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock. The journaling area is a piece of Whisper White with a piece of the Specialty Paper adhered to the top & let hang over a little.

The 2 hearts were die cut from Balmy Blue & Basic Black Cardstock using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits & adhered to a piece of Whisper White Cardstock.

The “love” was die cut from Basic Black using the same Framelits & adhered to a piece of Whisper White.  All 4 pieces of Whisper White were then adhered to a square of Basic Black & then to the sponged Whisper White.

The letters were cut from Balmy Blue & Whisper White, adhered onto each other but off centered a little before adhering to the Basic Black Square.  The little butterfly was die cut from Balmy Blue & Whisper White while the subtitle was typed & printed onto a piece of Whisper White, mounted onto a piece of Balmy Blue & then adhered to the page.

Amazing You

Amazing-You---Close-Up

G’Day stampers,

Today I am sharing with you the cards I posted off to my team last week.

A couple of each cards were created using the Celebrate You Thinlits.  They were teamed up with the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper which was randomly cut & Celebrate You Thinlits, Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper, Stampin' Up! #celebrateyou #sponging #delightfullydetailedlasercutpaper #teammembers #vickywright #makeacardsendacard #loveitchopit #stampinupadhered to a piece of sponged Whisper White Card.

The Whisper White Card was sponged with Grapefruit Grove & Mango Melody Inks using the Stamping Sponge & adhered to a Base Card of Night of Navy.  All I did to make them a little different was turn the sponging upside down before adhering to the Base Card.

The words were die cut in Night of Navy, Grapefruit Grove & Mango Melody Card before adhering over the top of the Specialty Paper.

G’Day Stampers.  Once again I am taking part in Kylie’s International Highlights Hop For June.  This month is all about Friendship.

I am just scraping this in by the skin of my teeth as I thought I had already created this post so I am very lucky that I checked it before it went live.  Sometimes, things just seem to Detailed-with-Love---Insideget on top of you & you get carried away with doing other “stuff”.

I had a bit of a play with some new product – Detailed with Love Stamp Set & the gorgeous Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.  Oh how I love this!

Not sure of what is Kylie’s International Highlights?   It is where Demonstrators from all around the world take part in a monthly Blog Highlight.  It’s a great way to get to know other Demonstrators & see projects using current Stampin’ Up!® product.

You have come via the very talented Sharon who does amazing work especially with her scrapbooking.

Dragonfly-Dreams-1---InsideFor my card today I opted to go very simple & showcase a couple of the new In Colours – Lovely Lipstick & Pineapple Punch Inks & boy do they have a “punch”.   I will say I am not a Brights’ girl, but I am loving these colours.  I teamed the Inks with Basic Black, Whisper White & Lovely Lipstick Cardstock along with a set that has carried over – Dragonfly Dreams.

 

My dragonfly has been heat embossed using VersaMark & Clear Emboss Powder.  I love embossing my shapes this way as it sort of packs a bit of a “punch” to your projects.

Seaside Shore

Seaside-Shore-1---Close-Up

Today’s card is the last of the Retiform Cards we created over a month in our Class a few weeks ago.  It is using one of the sets retiring at the end of the month.  I will miss Seaside Shore but of course SU! never seem to disappoint as there is always something to replace them by.

You can find the tutorial for the Retiform Technique by clicking on the Technique Page.  Be warned though it is very addictive & no 2 cards will ever be the same!
