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?

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.

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.

Watercolouring with Painted Poppies Stamp Set

G’Day Friends,

Thank you for dropping by today.  It is very much appreciated.

As July is Watercoluring month I thought I would share a couple of cards I’ve created using our Water Painters, Inks & Refills.  It is such a fun technique, so be sure you have a play.

Check out this video highlghting how to watercolour with your Water Painters.

As I hadn’t played with the Watercolour Paper for some time, out it came.

For my card I was determined to use a set that I hadn’t used for sometime, so down came the Painted Poppies Stamp Set.  In fact, this set is fantastic for watercolouring as the images are big & open, just want you want for quick & easy cards.  I also dug out my Watercolour Pencils & Water Painter.

The sentimet is from Peaceful Moments Stamp Set & has been stamped onto Very Vanilla with Gorgeous Grape Ink.

Do you recognise the layout?  It has actually been cased from Page 28 of the Annual Catalogue!

Now that you have seen my card & how easy it is, don’t forget to dig your Wwater Painters out & do a little watercolouring too!

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.

Spendid Day Suite Collection by Stampin’ Up!

G’Day Friends,

With the weather the way it has been this week, it has been the perfect time to just sit & craft, too wet & cold to get out in the garden.

My little dog has not been getting out of bed until about 9ish, when we go for our walk, she has brekkie & retires back to bed until about 2ish & then it is time for another walk.

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.

I actually did a live for this card yesterday showing how to use your scraps of DSP.  Mind you it completely turned out different to what I had in mind as it just didn’t go to plan – my part – but we battled on & got there in the end.  It is probably a great design to complete your half finished projects too.

I am loving the fact that you are able to stamp on the opposite side of the foil sheets, which is exactly what I did here.

I will be honest & say that the image was going to be coloured with Stampin’ Blends but after the disaster of the chopping the DSP, I thought better not to push my luck lol.  If you watch the video, you will see why.

Mega Tutorial Bundle with Stampin’ Up! Splendid Day Suite Collection

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.
