Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop – Card/Project Kits

Hi friends,

Welcome to Stamping Flair. I am blog hopping with other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from the Stampin’ Dreams Facebook Group. 

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop July Designer Series Paper

The theme this month is Card/Project Kits. Stampin’ Up! offers a variety of kits both in the Annual and Holiday catalogues. You can browse the entire range of kits here. Kits can be used as suggested or altered. With the stamp sets and accessories provided they can cross over to other projects as well which make them versatile.

My cards today use the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley from the Holiday catalogue. While a kit is centred around a specific project, a product medley gives the crafter a whole lot of products to create anything you like. 

Most Wonderful Time Christmas card with Silver embossed Christmas tree and deer

Most Wonderful Time Product Medley includes:

* 11-piece photopolymer stamp set (clear blocks sold separately)
* 48 sheets of 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper, 8 each of 6 double-sided designs
* 12 gold foil card fronts, 4 each of 3 designs
* 6 sticker sheets, 2 sheets each of 3 designs
* Gold/white tinsel trim 9.1 m
* 58 adhesive-backed gold faceted stars
* 6-piece Most Wonderful Time Dies (use with a die-cutting & embossing machine)

This card uses the some of the products from this product medley to create a different colour palette with Seaside Spray and Silver. I masked the stamp with the image of presents, using a post-it-note and inked the bow up with Seaside Spray to create a border on the card base. The tree has been heat embossed in Silver and coloured with Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends. 

Most Wonderful Time Product Medley, Stampin' Up!, Christmas card in alternate colours

I used the Christmas Countdown stamp set for the stamped Whisper White layer. Then I added Night of Navy and Silver Foil strips together with the beautiful, sparkly organdy ribbon for the deer to sit on.

Handmade Christmas card with Tree and presents Red and Green

For my second card, I stayed with the colour palette of the product medley – Basic Black, Gold foil, Old Olive, Real Red and Whisper White. For the layers, I added different strips of Designer Series Paper and stamped the sentiment on one of the included stickers. The presents were fussy cut from a sheet of DSP. The pretty gold tinsel trim and star that adorns the top of the tree are also included in this medley. This is a value pack of products that you will be able to create so many Christmas projects and cards with.

Kre8tors Blog Hop – Brides and Babies

Hi stampers, 

Welcome to Stamping Flair and a brand new week. So glad you could stop by my blog. I’m hopping with my friends from the Kre8tors Blog Hop group and we have projects focusing on Brides and Babies. Both such wonderful, happy occasions and what a great reason to make a card. 

Kre8tors Blog Hop August Color Challenge

I’ve chosen the Bride theme and created a fancy fold congratulatory card for a wedding using the beautiful Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper. This paper has such a vintage look so I created a vintage feel, Front Flip card.This is a very quick fold to make and decorate. The card base is a single layer. The front flap is scored in half and the back part is adhered to the card base. 

Front Flip Fancy Fold card, Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper

I really love the script paper in this pack and used it on the base. The flap part has another piece of DSP attached to the front and I stamped the inside with images from the For the Love of Felt stamp set. I like this stamp set for it’s simple, clean images and although designed for the coordinating, For the Love of Felt Project Kit, this set has some lovely images, especially for simple stamping. 

Inside of Flip front card, Kre8tors Blog Hop, Fancy Fold card

The addition of the Delicate Lace die cut border and the Scalloped Lace Trim just add to the vintage feel of this card. The butterfly has been coloured with Stampin’ Blends and I’ve gone around the edges of it, as well as the circles and sentiment with a sponge dauber and Crumb Cake ink.

Measurements are listed at the bottom of this post.

Kylie’s International Blog Highlight September – Daisy Encouragement

Kylie's International Blog HIghlightI’ve made an encouragement card today as part of Kylie Bertucci’s September International Blog Highlight. I’ve chosen neutral shades and the calming tones of Balmy Blue as my colour combination.

I stamped the bird in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, die cut it with the circle and coloured with Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. Then I created a mask by stamping the bird again on some scrap paper. I dabbed a bit of liquid glue on the back and left it to become tacky. Then I placed this over the the bird to use as a mask and stamped the leaves in Old Olive over the circle.

Using 2 circle dies (1 larger and 1 smaller than the Whisper White circle), I die cut a frame from Crumb Cake cardstock. This was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the embossed Balmy Blue panel.

Framed Bird coloured with Stampin' Blends

I stamped 3 daisies in Pretty Peacock ink, punched them out and sponged around to soften the edges. Several leaves were cut from the vellum sheet in the Magnolia Lane Memories and More cardpack and arranged under the flower. The ribbon has been secured with glue dots.

Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop – Summer

Hi Friends,

Happy middle of the week! Wednesdays are great days aren’t they? Second half of the week means the weekend looms near. It’s extra nice because I get Wednesdays off from my regular job in a school so more time to craft. 

Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop Today I’m thrilled to be part of the Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop. I am a cardmaker most of the time and I jumped at the opportunity to participate in this blog hop as it just stretches my creativity and made me think big (scrapbook page size)!

I am a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator from a small coastal town of Blind Bight in the South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. The beach is a short 5 minute walk from our home and it’s a lovely quiet area away from the busy suburbs. So when I found out the theme for this month’s hop was ‘Summer’ my first thought was Coastal Cabana for the beach and that’s how my page unfolded.

 

Scrapbook blog hop with a summer theme, Tropical Chic stamp set

The next product that I really wanted to incorporate was the striped So Saffron cardstock from the Magnolia Lane Memories & More card pack. The yellow signifying sunshine and bright days. 

Summer themed Scrapbooking page for Everyday moments

Summer evoked memories of my childhood in Sri Lanka with palm trees and bright flowers. The Tropical Chic stamp set had the perfect images for this.

Summer themed scrapbook page also suitable for honeymoon style photos

The flowers have been stamped in Memento ink on Shimmery White cardstock. Then I sprinkled Pigment Sprinkles on a clear stamping block and used an aqua painter to colour them in. The effect is so pretty and the colours are intense. A little goes a long way. The sentiments are also from the Memories & More card pack and I’ve layered them to create depth and interest. 

Memory Keeping with the Magnolia Lane Memories & More card pack

I’m so glad I have had this opportunity to participate today as it’s been a whole lot of fun. Make sure you stop by all the participating blogs and check out the fun ways everyone has interpreted Summer. Please click on the Next button to see what Cindy has created.

Esad 2019 Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek Blog Hop

Hello,

I’m so glad that you have stopped by my blog today. A Group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from the ESAD Facebook group are blog hopping showcasing the beautiful products in the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalogue. 

ESAD Blog Hop Holiday Catalogue 2019

Let it Snow Suite

I’ve chosen one of the cute suites which I really love. The Let it Snow Suite (Item #153386) is on Pages 18-21 of the catalogue. This suite has several products in it and includes a very cute Snowman Builder punch, Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies and 2 sets of stamps – Snowman Season and Tiny Keepsakes (Item #150460). The coordinating colours of Blueberry Bushel, Basic Black, Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Whisper White give it a real wintry feel. I know it’s not your typical Aussie Christmas but somehow I love snowmen at Christmastime. This suite just adds to the Christmas magic with it’s sparkly Designer Series paper and pretty colours. 

Snowman Christmas card with matching gift box

My card features one of the cute snowmen from the Snowman Season stamp set. Simply stamp and punch out – it’s that easy. I fussy cut a beanie and his shawl is from the Let it Snow Embellishment Kit (Item #150425). This kit comes complete with 60 stitched felt accents in Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Shaded Spruce and Real Red, 96 enamel shapes, 36 felt snowballs, 1.8m of washi tape – lots of goodies to dress up your snowman and your projects. 

Mercury Glass Designer Acetate

The circle is punched out of Coastal Cabana cardstock. On top of that is one of the hidden gems in this catalogue – Mercury Glass Designer Acetate. LOVE IT! You will find this on the bottom right of Page 44. There are 2 designs which have a faux mercury glass finish. One is a speckled finish and the other is a cracked finish and they are stunning. 

Christmas Card with Punch Snowman, diy handmade greeting card

Itty Bitty Christmas Bundle

The snowflakes and sentiment are from the Itty Bitty Christmas Bundle which includes the Christmas Layers Dies and the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set. For a variety of sentiments you really can’t go past this stamp set. It has you covered for all types of Christmas cards for family, friends, faith-based, fun, gift tags and even new year greetings – 18 stamps in all. 

Coordinate this card with this little gift box which is really quick to make and so cute decorated with the Let it Snow DSP.  I saw a version of it on Pinterest from Aural Models and adapted the way I made it. It’s a really fun pull out box and t’s got the element of surprise as it opens out in the opposite way to what you would normally expect. 

Cube Pull out gift box Easy to make

The box is quite easy to make.I embossed the Real Red cardstock with the Winter Knit embossing folder and used Stampin’ Write Markers to create the multi-coloured sentiment.

Details for creating the box can be viewed HERE
