Purple Posy Day #2

G’Day Friends,

Thanks so much for dropping by today!

It’s Day 2 of showcasing the lovely soft 2019-2021 In Colour of Purple Posy.

When creating with this colour, I find it hard to go past the fun Playing with Patterns DSP.  I also love the cute little Moving Along Stamp Set which I used  Monday as well.  I think they are made for each other but I will let you decide on that one.

I cut a strip of DSP, adhered it to a piece of Basic white Cardstock before wrapping a piece of Night of Navy Ribbon down the edge of the DSP.  This Ribbon is from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack.

The layer of Basic White was then adhered to a piece of Night of Navy before being adhered to the Purple Posy Base Card.

I stamped the little chopper onto scrap Basic White in Night of Navy Ink, coloured & blended with the Purple Posy Stampin’ Blend Combo before die cutting a circle with the Layering Circles Dies.  I cut a scallop circle from Night of Navy with the same dies.

These pieces were adhered together prior to adhering to Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped with Night of Navy Ink, punched with the Classic Label Punch & adhered to the left side of Card Front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

In my photo I finished the card off with Night of Navy Rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestones but have since changed them out to the Playing with Patterns Resin Dots of Purple Posy which softened the whole look of the card more.

Ok enough of that, let’s get onto today’s card.

Today’s card is one that I’ve created with the lovely new Butterfly Brilliance Collection which goes live today until the beginning of May.  I am loving this collection & much to my surprise am enjoying creating for a class around this Collection but I am getting off the beaten  track so to speak.

I embossed a piece of Mint Macaron with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder prior to adhering to a Just Jade Base Card.

A piece of the Butterfly Bijou DSP was trimmed down prior to adhering to a piece of Basic White & then to the top part of the Card Front.

I die cut the stitched shape from Basic White with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, stamped the sentiment from the Happy Thoughts Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, die cut with the Layering Circles Dies & adhered to the centre of the stitched shape with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  This was then adhered to the centre of the DSP panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals too.

I inked up the butterfly of choice, stamped onto a piece of Basic White in Memento Tuxedo Ink prior to colouring & blending with Mini Macaron Stampin’ Blends.

The image was die cut with the outline die from Butterfly Wings Dies before being adhered to the bottom of the die cut circle/shape with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on bottom of the wings only.

To complete the card I randomly adhere Shaded Spruce Holiday Rhinestone to the front of the card.

During March we are showcasing this lovely collection, so be sure to subscribe for more ideas on creating with this collection.

Terracotta Tile #3

G’Day Friends,

Today is Day 3 of showcasing the lovely rich Terracotta  Tile  2019-2021  In  Colour?

Again, I’ve teamed it up with the thee Ornate Garden Specialty DSP along with the Ornate Layers Dies & the Ornate Style Stamp Set.

The sentiment is from the Level 1, Heal Your Heart Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set.

The sunflower was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, coloured & blended with Stampin’ Blends of Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake & Old Olive.

The frame was then adhered to the left side of the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped in Terracotta Tile, die cut with the Layering Ovals Dies before being adhering to a scallop oval die cut from Terracotta Tile with the same Layering Ovals Dies.

It was popped up to the Card Front with a Stampin’ Dimensional on the right side & Adhesive on the left side.

I finished the card off with a  cute little Terracotta Tile Butterfly Gems.

Have you noticed that I’ve been using these lovely little Butterfly Gems on all my cards?

Terracotta Tile Day #2

G’Day Friends,

Are you ready for Day 2 of showcasing the lovely rich Terracotta  Tile  2019-2021  In  Colour?

Again, I’ve gone with the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP but this time round teamed it up with Early Espresso & Level 1, Heal Your Heart Stamp Set.

Can you tell I am a little obsessed with this Set.  I just love the font as well as the sentiments.

This time I’ve randomly chopped m DSP into 3’s prior to adhering to the Early Espresso Cardstock.

When adhering the DSP, ensure that you are matching the pattern of the DSP & if you have to chop, chop from the outer edges of the DSP so that you keep your pattern.  I love creating & using my DSP this way!

The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso Ink onto Basic White, die cut with the Layering Circles Dies & adhered to a Early Espresso scallop circle which was die cut with the same dies.

It’s a fairly simple card but one that i wanted the Terracotta Tile & the DSP to shine.

I finished the card off with a couple of the cute little Terracotta Tile Butterfly Gems.

G’Day Friends,

Today  is Day of 1 showcasing the lovely  Terracotta  Tile  2019-2021  In  Colour.   It won’t be long & the colours will be gone & gone forever!

I’ve teamed the colour with the lovely Ornate Garden DSP along with the Level 1, Heal Your Heart Stamp Set from Sale-a-Bration.

It’s a fairly simple card but one that i wanted the Terracotta Tile & the DSP to shine.

I’ve even managed to add the lovely Butterfly Gems on the card too.  In Terracotta Tile, of course!  I love these little Gems!

I’m happy to say that by showcasing these In Colours I am managing to use up the little bit of stock that I have left of them.  It just means that I will only have scraps left over!

Rococo Rose #3

G’Day Friends,

Today is Day #3 of Robbie & myself showcasing the lovely Rococo Rose which is part of the 2019-2021 In Colours.

It is also one I created for our class last week where we played with a little bit of folding the Paper Bloom DSP to create a skirt & added it to our card.

The background was embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder – one of my favourites – prior to adding it to a piece of Merry Merlot Cardstock.

The flower has been die cut with the Pierced Blooms Dies & die cut with Merry Merlot before being added to the Card Front with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  The centre was die cut from a scrap of Basic White with the same dies.  The leaf is Mint Macaron & die cut once again with the same dies.

The sentiment is from the Under the Umbrella Stamp Set.

No bling on my card today & not much stamping either.  I wanted to keep it simple so that the DSP skirt was the star of the show.

What do you think?

A Touch of Ink #2

G’Day Friends,

Today is Day #2 of showcasing the lovely Level 2, A Touch of Ink Stamp Set which can be yours when spending $180 or more BUT only while Sale-a-Bration is happening.  Don’t forget, it finishes 28 February!

If you are new to Stampin’ Up!, there are 2 levels in the Sale-a-Bration Brochure.

Level 1 – Spend $90

Level 2 – Spend $180

The 3rd level would have to be the best in my eyes & that happens when joining Stampin’ Up! during SAB & purchasing the Starter Kit for $169.  Of course, then SU! are gonna throw in the FREE exclusive gift of 200 pieces of DSP from the upcoming catalogue.  Can it get any better?

Don’t forget, you can join here.  We would love to have you on our team!

I’ve just realised that I’ve again teamed today’s card with another Level 1 product from Sale-a-Bration – the gorgeous Oh So Ombre DSP.  Just goes to show how much I love this DSP lol.  I’ve also noticed that I’ve used the sentiment from yet another SAB item & that is Heal Your Heart which is Level 1.

As Rococo Rose is being showcased this week, I thought it the perfect time to incorporate both items into the one card – Rococo Rose & A Touch of Ink Stamp Set with touches of Blackberry Bliss.

The butterfly has been coloured & blended  with Light  Blackberry  Bliss & Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends.

Can you believe I am up to 899 in Tutorials?  I wouldn’t normally celebrate but this number – 899 – brings back so many happy & fun memories as it was my old operating number while serving in the RAN!

A Touch of Ink #1

G’Day Friends,

As well as showcasing the 2019-2021 In Colours on my FB Page this week, I am also showcasing the lovely Level 2, A Touch of Ink Stamp Set which can be yours when spending $180 or more BUT only while Sale-a-Bration is happening.  Of course, don’t forget, it finishes 28 February!

If you are new to Stampin’ Up!, there are 2 levels in the Sale-a-Bration Brochure.

Level 1 – choose this level when spending $90

Level 2 – choose this level when spending $180

Then of course, there is the 3rd level which is only available when joining Stampin’ Up! during SAB & purchasing the Starter Kit for $169.  Of course, then SU! are gonna throw in the FREE exclusive gift of 200 pieces of DSP from the upcoming catalogue.  Can it get any better?

Don’t forget, you can join here.  We would love to have you on our team!

For today’s card, I’ve teamed it up with another Level 1 product from Sale-a-Bration – the gorgeous Oh So Ombre DSP.  Don’t you just love the colours?

I selected the Blackberry Bliss DSP, adhered it to a piece of Basic White & then to a Blackberry Bliss Base Card.

I stamped the flower image from A Touch of Ink 3 times down the left side of a piece of Basic White in Granny Apple Green prior to colouring the flowers with Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Combo.  This is a 2-step stamp set, but I chose to do a little colouring instead leaving the leaves bare.

This layer was then adhered to a piece of Blackberry Bliss prior to adhering to the left side of the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The humming bird was stamped onto a scrap of Basic White, again in Granny Apple Ink, coloured with Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Combo prior to being fussy cut.  It was the adhered to the right side of the stamped Basic White panel with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment from the same set was stamped in Blackberry Bliss.  I am loving the font of the sentiments in this set!

To complete the card, I grabbed the Balmy Blue Sequins from the Artistry Blooms & adhered 3 to the Basic White panel.

I’ll let you in on a little secret – to cover a little blob on the bird, I randomly stamped it with the spotty image in Blackberry Bliss but stamping off once.  There is always ways around covering your mishaps.

Flower & Field DSP – Day 5

G’Day Friends,

Can you believe this is Day 5 of showcasing the lovely Flower & Field DSP?  Where does the time go?  It is also the last day for this week of our #simplestamping.

If you are not aware, Robbie & myself have been showcasing #simplestamping over on our FB Pages for the past 3 weeks.  Don’t forget if you would like to receive this card, all you have to do is share my FB Post & comment to say you have done so.

To highlight both sides of this DSP, I’ve actually cut 2 piece of the same paper but switched them around so that 1 side is the back layer while the opposite side is the smaller piece.

The smaller piece of DSP was layered onto Flirty Flamingo prior to layering onto the larger piece of DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  It was then layered onto Basic White & then to a Pool Party Base Card.

The sentiment is from the In Bloom Stamp Set & stamped onto a scrap of Basic White in Pool Party Ink.

I punched 2 x medium daisies with the Medium Daisy Punch, adhered them together by off-centering them prior to popping to the left of the sentiment with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I finished the card off with tying a small bow from the Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon & adhered it to the centre of the daisy with a Mini Glue Dot.

Flower & Field DSP – Day 4

G’Day Friends,

Thank you for  dropping by today.  It is so very much appreciated.  I do hope you are enjoying this week’s creations with the lovely Flower & Field DSP.

Not only have I been showcasing the DSP but I’ve been playing with the lovely Happy Thoughts Stamp Set.  It is perfect for all occasions!

I cut a piece of DSP into 2’s & adhered both pieces side by side down a piece of Basic White Cardstock before adding Bumblebee Ribbon down the join the DSP.  This panel was then adhered to a Cherry Cobbler Base Card.

The sentiment was stamped onto Basic White in Bumblebee Ink, die cut with the Layering Ovals Die & adhered to a Bumblebee scallop oval which had been die cut with the same Dies but a size bigger.

I finished the card off with adding a small bow with a Mini Glue Dot a& adding a couple of Rhinestones to the sentiment shape.
