New at SU Blog Hop – Make it Metallic with Thoughtful Designs

New at SU 2024 Header

Hello, Welcome to the New at SU blog hop for July. This month our team are showcasing our beautiful metallic products. I’ll be sharing the Thoughtful Designs Specialty Designer Series Paper which is part of the Thoughtful Journey Suite. I also added some other metallic elements to my card from our varied range of products.

On the embossed White Cardstock I roughly applied some Copper Metallic Enamel Effects with a brush. Then I added a layer of the Specialty DSP at the bottom. This pack comes in the 2024-2026 In-Colors and are shaded in an ombre style so each sheet will have a variation in colour.

On top of these layers I added a coordinating piece of the Thoughtful Journey Designer Series Paper layered with Crumb Cake Cardstock.

Several pieces of foliage were die cut from Crumb Cake and Basic White Cardstock. For variation, I watercoloured some leaves in Wild Wheat in a very rustic fashion so that the white still showed through. On this I added some die cut Glimmer Flowers in Petunia Pop.

Some Copper Clay Linen Thread (coming in our September – December Mini Catalogue) and Metallic Enamel Effects Dots finish of this card.

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my creation. Stop by my Facebook Page at 10am AEST to see me create a variation on this card. I hope this inspires you to try out some of our Metallic and Specialty products.

Next on our hop is Sharon Dalton. Please follow our hop through for lots of beautiful metallic inspiration.

CASEing the Catty CTC478 – Masking Project

Hello friends, This week in our CASEing the Catty Crew blog hop for CTC478 we are CASEing a masking project from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. You can find a range of these projects suggested on Pages 124-125.

I chose a technique of using Masking Paper to mask of areas of my cardstock and then blend colour onto it. You can see an example of this in the catalogue with the butterfly project where the colour has been brayered on. However, for my project I blended the colours.

I cut 1 cm strips of Masking Paper and adhered it diagonally across a piece of Cardstock to form a pattern. Then I blended Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry across the sheet.

TIP: As the Masking Paper is very sticky, before placing it onto the Cardstock, apply it to your clothing to reduce the stickiness. This will help when you need to peel it off the Cardstock.

Once the ink had dried (you can use your heat tool to speed up the process), I stamped the Leaf Collection background stamp in Versamark and heat embossed it in Clear embossing powder. This created a beautiful, subtle image across the blending. I also splattered some dots with a Black Stampin’ Blend.

The label under the sentiment was die cut from Fluid 100 Cardstock on which I watercoloured Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry and Basic Gray ink to tie in with the background.

Those little flowers were all die cut in one go with the you-beaut die that’s in the Flowers of Beauty dies. There’s one strip that cuts 8 flowers in one pass. Before I die cut the flowers, I dabbed on some Crushed Curry ink with a Blending Brush onto the Pretty in Pink Cardstock to give the flowers some shading.

I trimmed down the length of the card base to better fit the size of the Radiating Stiches dies for A4 Cardstock, with a finished card front of 10.5 cm x 13.9 cm.

    Monochromatic Crumb Cake – Birthday Sparkle

    This week, for the Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Insta Hop we are creating projects with Crumb Cake. Part of our Neutrals Collection, Crumb Cake is well used in my craft room. Coordinating with a range of colours, you can grunge it up or make it a bit vintage for alternate looks.

    When it’s such an open theme, it’s hard to pick one stamp set to work with. I was inspired by the ‘cake’ in Crumb Cake and opted for a birthday card featuring the cake from the Attention Shoppers bundle.

    I then opened the Birthday Sparkle Kit which I’d had for a while and thought some of those elements would work really well for my celebratory card. The tag includes some beautiful gold embossing which added a lovely background for my chocolate cake which was coloured with Stampin’ Blends.

    The balloon images were from the stamp set in the kit and were stamped in Crumb Cake on one of the included pieces of patterned paper. In this kit you get some die cut balloons and I used the negative to blend Crumb Cake ink over the stamped image, fussy cutting around the image that formed.

    The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso on a piece of White Cardstock blended with Light and Dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog here in Melbourne and I hope this inspires you to try out our kits and find something that suits your style of crafting.

    Until the 31st of July, every $90 spend earns a $9 Bonus Days coupon which is redeemable in August. There is no limit to how many coupons you can earn. Click on any of the images below to shop the the products to create this card.
