Create Weekly #19 with Butterfly Brilliance by Stampin’ Up!

G’Day Friends,

Thank you so much for popping by.  It is so very much appreciated.

Before we get into today’s share, I just wanted to let you know that November’s Stamp & Card Club is now open.  This club is only available via monthly subscription. We’re playing with the Happiness Abounds Stamp Set along with the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper.

For all the information about this club & to subscribe, click on this LINK

Each Sunday I share a Sketch Layout for our group to play with.

Then the next day – Monday, I share a video tutorial showing how I created my card along with a bonus project using the same layout.  It’s a lot of fun, especially great if you are stuck for inspiration.

It is a simple layout although you can make it as hard or asa easy as you like.  In my case, I let the lovely DSP do all the talking & be the star of the show.

I created my card with the Design a Daydream DSP which I teamed up with the lovely Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set & the matching Brilliant Wings Dies.

The Cardstock colours are Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive & Basic White while the Ink is So Saffron & Blackberry Bliss.

The sentiment on the card is from the fun Biggest Wish Stamp Set & one of my go to sets.  I love that you can do so much with it & have a different result each time.

Click HERE to see the original card created in the video.

By clicking on the video below, you will be able to watch how it was created including an alternate idea with the same sketch layout.  That’s 3 different ideas!

Friends are like Seashells

G’Day Friends,

Thank you so much for dropping by.  It is always very much appreciated.

Last week for our Stamp & Create FB Live we cased a card on Page 15 of the 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue.  Some of us forget to use our Catalogues as inspiration.

As I don’t have the same supplies used, I decided to go with the lovely Friends are like Seashells Stamp Set.  I also created my card a standard size & added another layer.

Vintage Christmas & Mystery Stamping

G’Day Friends,

Yesterday we did a little bit of Mystery Stamping as we hadn’t done any for some time.

I took the clues from a card I had created a week or so ago & went with it.

The Cardstock is Evening Evergreen while the Ink is Crumb Cake & Cherry Cobbler.

The paper is the lovely Lights Aglow Specialty 6 x 6 from the current Mini Catalogue.

It has been finished off with the Festive Pearls also from the current Mini Catalogue.

Today I am sharing our Create Weekly #19 Sketch layout.  I share a layout each Sunday & the on the Monday a video is shared creating a card with the layout along with 1 or 2 alternate ideas.  They are always nice & easy which is what it is all about plus it’s a great way of getting your mojo going with the added bonus of being lots of fun.

For my card today I played with one of everyone’s favoutite- the Hues of Happiness Suite which is in the Annual Catalogue.  Even though I am not a Bright’s person, I am loving all the bright colours in this Suite.

The Base Card is Pool Party & teamed up with the lovely So Saffron flower which has been die cut from the gorgeous DSP.  Don’t you love it when we can do that?

Rings of Love DSP

G’Day Friends,

Today is the last day to take advantage of the wonderful Sale-a-Bration we’ve been offered throughout July & August.  I’m not sure which has been my favourite but I do know the lovely Rings of Fire DSP, Level 1 is high on the list.  It also coordinates with the Ringed with Nature Bundle from the July-December Mini Catalogue.  Do you have a favourite?

My card is one I share on our Weekly FB Live, Mystery Stamping  a couple of weeks ago & suddenly remembered that I hadn’t share it with you.

I wanted to share both sides of the DSP so what better way than to do so by using both sides of 1 piece of paper.  Oh, notice the house?  It’s from the same pack of papers & all I’ve done is fussy cut it.

To check out the Video, click on this link.

Butterfly Kisses Suite by Stampin’ Up

G’Day Friends,

We played around with the fun & bright Best Butterflies Suite in our Stamp & Create FB Live yesterday.

Each week, I post a Sketch Layout where we create our project using the layout.

I thought it would be fun to showcase an alternate way of creating a very easy Fun Fold using the Sketch Layout.

I will be honest & say I didn’t really look at this Suite from the Annual until recently.  After playing with it for a few days even creating a bright Cards to GO! Kit with it, I’m happy to say that I am loving it so much.  So much fun!

Click on this link to watch the video on how I created my card.  I also show you another version created with the Same Suite & Sketch Layout.

Sunny Splash

G’Day Friends,

I have an easy but fun technique for you today.  I first saw this somewhere in my social media feed either TickTok, Pinterest or FB.  I’m not sure which but it stuck in the back of my mind & thought I would give it ago.

To create my bubbles, I’ve used Coastal Cabana Ink along with a Sponge Dauber.  You could also use your Blending Brushes if you wish along with as many colours as you like.

It would be great to see the same effect with different shapes or even balloons.

I am loving the soft colour of Coastal Cabana along with the Bermuda Bay togs & Basic Grey sentiment.  What about the bling?  They are the Evening Evergreen Opal Rounds which just pops the card even more.

Hand-Penned Petals by Stampin’ Up!

G’Day Friends,

Welcome & thank you for dropping by.  It is very much appreciated.

I am a little late in sharing this card with you today but thought I would anyway.  I even have a little video to share with you too.

The card has actually been Page 28 of the Annual Catalogue but with my spin on it.

The flowers are from the lovely Hand-Penned Petal Stamp Set, Page 107 & have been coloured with Watercolour Pencils along with the Water Painters.  I love my Pencils.  Have you played with them yet?

I am loving the bright colours of Melon Mambo along with Basic Grey, So Saffron & Granny Apple Green.  What do you think?
