Pretty Peacock Day #3

G’Day Friends,

Today is the last day of showcasing the lovely Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In Colour.  I do hope you are enjoying the cards I’ve been creating with these In Colours over the past few weeks.

I’ve combined the “old”, so to speak, with the “new” for today’s share.  Enjoy Every Moment Stamp Set is from the 2021 Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue.

The more I use this set, the more I am loving it.  So much potential.

I randomly stamped 4 images from Enjoy Every Moment Stamp Set onto 4 x squares in Old Olive Ink.  These squares were then adhered to 4 x scallop squares die cut from Coastal Cabana with the Layering Squares Dies before adhering to the left side of Basic White which has been embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

The sentiment from the same set was stamped onto scrap Basic White in Pretty Peacock Ink & die cut with the die from Stitched So Sweetly Dies before being adhered to centre of the 4 squares with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A very easy but effective card I think but more importantly I do hope you like it.

Seaside Spray Day #2

G’Day Friends,

I am well & truly playing catch up now as this is my 2nd post for today!

It’s Day #2 of Seaside Spray In Colour which is one of my favourites.  Do you have a favourite?

I’ve been digging out a few neglected Stamp Sets from my shelves & playing with them once again.

Today it is To a Wild Rose’s turn.  It’s been teamed up with Blushing Bride, Just Jade plus Seaside Spray.  Not forgetting Basic White of course.

I must admit, I am loving these colours & may have to play some more with this colour combination.

The flower is a 3 step image & was stamped onto a piece of Basic White in Seaside Spray Ink, stamping off twice, once & then direct onto the Cardstock.  I filled in the gaps with the little image from the same set which I must admit has been stamped in Petal Pink BUT only because I picked up the wrong colour.  This will teach me not to put Inks away when I have finished stamping with them, but it does blend in.

I then randomly chopped this stamped piece into 3’s prior to adhering to a piece of Blushing Bride Cardstock, Basic White & then to the Seaside Spray Base Card.

The sentiment was stamped in Seaside Spray Ink onto Basic White, die cut with the small oval from Layering Ovals Dies & adhered to a Just Jade scallop oval which was die cut from the same Dies prior to adhering to Card Front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To complete the card, I randomly adhered 3 x Seaside Spray Butterfly Gems to the Card Front.

Pretty Peacock Day #2

G’Day Friends,

Well this didn’t happen yesterday instead spent the day in bed with Vertigo.  I know what I would have sooner been doing lol.

Pretty Peacock screams the ocean – to me anyhow – & this was the perfect time to create a card for males, females or kids.

It was also the perfect time to dig out my very neglected Whale Done Stamp Set & Whale Builder Punch.

Of course when you have these 2 products, you have to do a little embossing which means I embossed a piece of Basic White Cardstock with the gorgeous Seabed 3D Embossing Folder before adhering to the Pretty Peacock Base Card.

The sentiment is from the Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Set, stamped in Pretty Peacock Ink prior to being die cut with an oval from the Layering Ovals Dies.  It was then adhered to a Pretty Peacock scallop oval die cut with the same Dies.

The whale was stamped onto a piece of Basic White in Pretty Peacock Ink, punched with the Whale Builder Punch prior to adhering to the side of the oval with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I am loving the simple layout & colours of this card!  I hope you do too.

Seaside Spray Day #1

G’Day Friends,

I’m playing catch up this week with showcasing the 2019-2021 In Colours.  As well as Pretty Peacock this week you will also see creations from the lovely Seaside Spray.

This colour would have to be one of my favourites as I am a real blue person & it reminds of the colours in the ocean.

Again I’ve kept the layout fairly simple allowing the colour to shine although I’ve added Sahara Sand with just a pop of Rococo Rose.

The stamp set is Garden Wishes from the JJ Mini Catalogue.

I tied a small bow from Linen Thread to pop it a little more.

Pretty Peacock Day #1

G’Day Friends,

Are you ready for our new 2019-2021 In Colour of Pretty Peacock this week?

I will be honest & say that I wasn’t a big fan of Pretty Peacock but after creating all my projects for the week that has changed very quickly.

I’ve kept my card fairly simple but that is the way to go if you are creating with males in mind.

I randomly blended Pretty Peacock Ink over a piece of Basic White with the lovely new & oh so fantastic Blending Brushes leaving White spaces here & there.

I then stamped the large yacht from the Sailing Home Stamp Set direct over the blended area in Pretty Peacock Ink followed by the 2 smaller yachts.

The birds were randomly stamped 3 times above the yachts once again in Pretty Peacock Ink.

The sentiment is from the Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Set & again stamped in Pretty Peacock Ink. 

Both these stamp sets are a couple of my “go to” sets.  Do you have ones like that?

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.

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 #3

G’Day Friends,

Today is Day #3 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 – ends 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 hope you’ve been enjoying my cards this week with the lovely Rococo Rose?  I know I’ve enjoyed creating them.  Of course it is one of the colours retiring this year so if you love this colour, best to purchase it now!

This time round I’ve pulled out the Decorative Masks to create my background.  It is very soft which gives the whole card a very soft effect, don’t you think?

A Touch of Ink is a 2-step stamping Stamp Set which is what I did for my flower.  The outline is in Rococo Rose while the solid image is Blushing Bride but I stamped off first onto scrap paper before filling in the outline.

Rococo Rose #2

G’Day Friends,

This is Day 2 of Robbie & myself showcasing the lovely 2019-2021 In Colours over on our FB Pages.  Be sure to join us there.

Once again, my card is very simple to create but one that I think is lovely & clean so that it showcases the elements of the card perfectly.

This time round I’ve pulled out one of my favourites – Timeless Tropical Stamp Set.   It has been teamed up with the lovely Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.

The flower was stamped with Blushing Bride Ink while the leaves are Mini Macaron Ink.  The images were die cut with the matching dies from In the Tropics Dies.

The sentiment is from the Floral Essence Stamp Set.

The Base Card is again Rococo Rose along with the piece across the middleI am loving this colour & will be so sorry to see it leave us.

I finished the card off with a couple of 3 Clear Rhinestones..

What do you think?
