Monochromatic Starry Sky – Rock & Roll

Happy Saturday friends, It’s lovely to be able to share with you my first card using the Rock Star bundle. I’m a fan of all music stamp sets so this particular suite was going to end up with me at some stage. I just got it in last week and I love all the fun options that are available with the stamps, dies, embellishments and the black and white Designer Series Paper. It’s a great guy set and those black and white papers are so versatile.

I followed the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #fms626 . I started by inking up my guitar in Tuxedo Black. Then I wiped back the neck end of the guitar with a paper towel and coloured the stamp with the Starry Sky Stampin’ Write Marker. I added any details that may have come off with the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker. Then I stamped and die cut the image. On top of this I stamped a texture image from the Of Art & Texture stamp set. This is part of our Online Exclusives range. I really love how this stamp added just that little bit of colour to the image.

For the background some Shimmery White Embossing Paste was coloured with Starry Sky ink refill before application. The shimmer is so much fun and adds to the rock star look of this card. I applied it fairly thick as I wanted a more uneven, textured look.

I die cut a circle using the Stylish Shapes dies and added some blending through a mask. This was cut in half to form the sketch. The guitar was added on top with a pick die cut from Silver Foil. To complete the card I added a heat embossed sentiment with a little star from the embellishments in the Rock & Roll suite.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely weekend and a long weekend if you are in Melbourne!

New at SU Blog Hop – Step-it-up with the Beach Day Bundle

Hello and welcome to a very fun New at SU Blog Hop. This month we are stepping it up with products from our January – April Mini Catalogue. We are creating a simple stamping project and then using the same products to step it up for an avid crafter.

New at SU Header 2023-2024

I’ve chosen the Beach Day bundle which is very much in season here in Australia and created 3 versions of a card which is suitable for whatever level of crafting you are at right now – or dependent or the time you have to create!

CASUAL

The Delightful Floral Designer Series Paper provides a ready made shaded background for this card. Repeated stamping and a bit of ink blending make this a quick and easy card to make. Colouring was minimal with the surfboard coloured in just Calypso Coral and fussy cut to create a feature on the card.

Tips to keep it simple

  • Use your Designer Series Paper for maximum effect
  • Use just a few colours

AVID

I stepped this card up by colouring the other 2 surfboardsa and adding the die cut element of the wave. The sentiment was stamped on a separate piece of cardstock which coordinated with the Azure Afternoon card base and the layout was slightly changed to accommodate the wave border.

ARTFULLY AVID

A bit like the ‘burger with the lot’, the Artfully Avid card tends to add more technique into the mix. I’ve incorporated a bit more die cutting and lots more layers and detail.

I added more ink blending which really makes those surf boards look like they are on an Aussie beach. A cute die cut sandcastle incorporates the elements from my previous cards to give continuity to the step-it-up theme.

I hope you have enjoyed what I’ve shared today and see the possibilities of what you can create with your products. Please make sure to visit all our other team members to see how they step-it-up with their chosen products.

If you live in Australia and currently don’t have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I would value the opportunity to help you with your crafting needs. I can be contacted on Ph: 0404 255 001 or email rochelle@stampingflair.com

Rockin’ Around – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

Happy Friday! Bring on the weekend and perhaps some of you will be enjoying a long weekend. It’s Day 3 of the 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge and we are Rockin’ Around.

Today was lots of fun to create using the rocking horse from the retired Little Cuties stamp set. I had completely forgotten about this set and my goodness, it’s got a bunch of cute images. I’ve cute a rockin’ horse! I coloured the horse with a range of Stampin’ Blends and really like the natural tones against the rich Shaded Spruce background.

To bring the rhythm to the rockin’ I added some music score from the Joyful Specialty Designer Series Paper. The sentiment is from another retired stamp set, Seasonal Chums. You can substitute the rocking horse with our new Rocking Horse bundle #162041 which even die cuts it for you.

A beautiful gold ribbon and some Blooming Pearls add a touch of glam to this vintage card.

Nuts about Squirrels Birthday Card

Have you had stamp sets in your stash which retire never having known what ink is? Me too. I’ve been going through some of these stamp sets trying to use them. For my weekly Live this week I thought it’s time to use the Nuts About Squirrels stamp set which I hadn’t opened. This set is now on the Last Chance list so I’m glad I used it this week.

I wanted to create an autumn card with more soft colours using my old favourite Mint Macaron (sob, sob) and Fresh Freesia. Mint Macaron is saying goodbye to us and I will miss it.

My card has been inspired by the sketch at The Paper Players challenge.

I created a watercoloured panel on the right and an embossed panel for the left. The Nuts About Squirrels is a two-step stamp set, I added some extra shading using Stampin’ Blends.

The large leaf from the Aspen Dies and the branches which are die cut from our specialty paper create more texture for this cute squirrel.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you liked my alternate look to an autumn card. Please sign up for my Newsletter to be kept upto date with our latest products offerings, receive an exclusive tutorial weekly and other fun stuff.

New at su Blog Hop – Easter Bunny Floral Card

Hello and welcome to the New at SU Blog where we are showcasing some of our fabulous bundles from the January – April Mini Catalogue with the challenge of not using ANY Basic White Cardstock.

My chosen product is the very cute Easter Bunny bundle. I put my hand up for the product and then I thought – ah, that wasn’t a smart choice without any white!

For my background, I ink blended Pool Party, Pacific Point and Night of Navy ink on Pool Party Cardstock which was layered onto a Night of Navy card base.

I stamped the bunnies on Very Vanilla Cardstock and coloured them in with a mix of Stampin’ Blends, varying the colours for the two bunnies. Then I added some highlights with Watercolour Pencils, Early Espresso for the one on the right and Cajun Craze for the other.

The flowers were watercoloured using a Water Painter and ink pads and some blending using Watercolour Pencils. I really love how the combination of mediums work together.

Leaves from the Forever Fern stamp set were stamped onto Very Vanilla Cardstock in Soft Succulent with highlights of Shaded Spruce. This was blended over with some leftover green on my Blending Brush (possibly Pear Pizzazz) and a bit of Soft Succulent.

I watercoloured a panel of Shimmery White Cardstock with Soft Succulent and Soft Sea Foam and then die cut the sprigs with the Organic Dies. A bit of extra shading was added using a Blending Brush once dry. To tie all the leaves and flowers together I added the solid leaves die cut from Fine Shimmer paper.

A simple heat embossed sentiment was chosen to balance out against the heavy foliage on which the bunnies were set.

I hope you have been inspired by my bunny card and perhaps you might like to consider adding this to your order. Until 28th February, every $90 you spend will earn you a free Sale-A-Bration product so it’s a great time to shop.

Some Bunny Loves You

Oh what fun I’ve had creating this card using the cute Easter Bunny stamp set. I just got it in my latest Stampin’ Up! delivery and it’s the first time I’m playing with it.

I stamped the bunny in Sahara Sand and then coloured with Watercolor Pencils. For the body I used Crushed Curry with Early Espresso and Basic Gray adding some highlights and shadows. I added some Rich Razzleberry for a pink tint on her cheeks, ears and feet.

I stamped and coloured the left side of the body a second time. Fussy cutting and layering on top of the heart which had some Stampin’ Dimensionals under to pop it up, makes it look like the bunny is gifting a heart in keeping with our Love theme for the Global Design Project Challenge GDP379.

The soft floral Designer Series Paper added a lovely touch for this cute bunny card which uses the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches FMS571.

Although I’ve only used the stamp set for this card, this set also has a coordinating punch which you will want to order together to get the most out of this bundle and you also save 10% on the price. I’ve added the link below in the Product List. When your order reaches $90 you will qualify for a Sale-A-Bration reward plus my February tutorial bundle with 44 tutorials.
