Ink. Stamp. Share – Evergreen Elegance

Welcome to the September Ink. Stamp. Share Blog Hop where we have a colour challenge this month. We were required to use a minimum of 3 colours and we could also include Black, White and metallics. I managed to incorporate all 5 colours as they coordinated so well together.

Ink Stamp Share Monthly Blog Hop Header

I created a slimline card inspired by the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches FMS504.

I created a light wash with Petal Pink on the Basic White panel. Then I added some splatters with a Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Writer Marker. To apply the Gilded Leafing, I stamped the dots from the Textures & Frames stamp set in Versamark, applied Heat n’ Stick Powder and then added the Leafing for a bit of sparkle. I felt the Rich Razzleberry splatter wasn’t enough so using the brush tip of the marker I added some extra dots around the Gilded Leafing.

I used the Stamparatus to get the variegated shading on the trees adding colour with a sponge dauber.

The sentiment label has been stamped in Soft Sea Foam third generation stamping using one of the stamps from the free Textures & Frames stamp set. Get this set free during Sale-A-Bration until 30th September with a $90 order. I added a striip of Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper with a border of Rich Razzleberry Cardstock to complete this colour challenge.

A full product list is at the bottom of this post so you can recreate this card. Thank you for stopping by my blog today and for more inspiration click the Next Button to see Victoria LIttlewood’s project.

Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop – Lifetime Celebrations

Hi friend, Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Our theme this month at the Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop is Lifetime Celebrations. When you see my card you are going to wonder what I was thinking! Stick with me!

Stamping Inkspirations Blog Header

This is a remembrance of good times back in Sri Lanka with my mum, dad and my sister who are no longer with me. Home was always a place, bringing people together to fellowship and share in friendship. Special celebrations brought together a house full of people to share the joy, partake in good food, sing and have lots of laughter and fun.

This also brings to mind my birthdays, when I used to have my school friends over. Today, I remember a friend of mine, Ashanthi who celebrates her birthday in the U.S. and I haven’t seen her in 35 years. I miss her a lot.

I went to town on the free Sale-A-Bration products on this card, using 3 of them. The Feels Like Home stamp set, Textures and Frames stamp set and Beautifully Penned DSP. Sale-A-Bration runs until 30th September and you can get a free product from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue with an order over $90.

My colour palette was minimal but adding several layers and textures adds dimension interest to this card.

So in my roundabout way I have celebrated days gone by – missing and reminiscing at the same time. I hope you you like what I have shared and the story behind it. Please click on the Next Blog button to view Annette Ball’s beautiful project.

I have been immersed in the Harvest Meadow suite this week and can’t stop creating with it. It is so beautiful.

Harvest Meadow Suite. Stampin' Up!

Inspired by this suite and also by the challenge at Sunday Stamps SSC265, I have picked the colours of Autumn for my card today. My chosen colour palette is Bumblebee, Pumpkin Pie, Cinnamon Cider, Soft Succulent and Very Vanilla.

I watercoloured the flowers with a combination of colours using
Water Painters. The sprigs were die cut from Very Vanilla Cardstock and sponged with Cinnamon Cider and Pumpkin Pie inks.

On the card base, I added a panel of cardstock which was embossed with the Timeworn Embossing Folder. This folder gives such a beautiful texture and if you love that vintage look, you need this. (just saying!!)

I followed a video by our Artisan Design Team member, Tammy Wilson, to create the bow. I’ve still got some practicing to do but oh, it it is lots of fun to make. Click here to view the bow making video.

I am creating this card on my Facebook Live tonight so for full instructions and tips please make sure you check that out.

Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop – Monochromatic

Thank you for joining me today in quite a gloomy day in Melbourne. They say it’s going to get sunnier this week so summer is on the way. Nothing like some crafting to keep the mood cheery. I’ve got some sweet florals to share with you for my scrapbook page for the Ink & Share Scrapbook Monochromatic Blog Hop.

Ink Stamp Share Scrapbook Blog Hop Heade

I chose the Hand Penned Memories & More Card Pack to create my page in shades of green. When Stampin’ Up! provide us the products, why not use it? It sure makes it much easier. To give you an idea how much easier it is let me explain that I am not a scrapbooker but I love taking part in challenges that get me to stretch myself and learn new things. So here I am scrapbooking! Stampin’ Up! products make it easy to create and try things which you normally don’t do.

I added the Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper – Beautifully Penned which coordinates with the Hand Penned Petals bundle. You can earn this paper free with a $90 order and there are several other options as well.

On a Soft Sea Foam page, I mounted all my elements. A 20cm square of Beautifully Penned DSP was layered on a 20.6cm square of Soft Sea Foam cardstock which a coloured in Just Jade around the edges with a Blending Brush. I use this technique quite often to give muted colours. In this case I was able to match the colouring on the Memories & More Cards.

The flowers in the Memories & More cards looked like Pool Party so to keep in the monochromatic theme, I touched them up with a Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blend.

Some of the cards were cut apart and mounted on Soft Sea Foam cardstock (coloured as mentioned before) so I could create a different layout for my page.

For a focal element, I stamped a set of flowers from the Hand Penned stamp set and coloured with a mix of Mint Macaron, Just Jade and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.

The gems were also coloured with Light Just Jade and Light Old Olive to coordinate with the rest of the page.

All products that I have used to create this scrapbook page are listed at the bottom of this post.

Next on our hop is Dorothea Winkler. Please follow our hop and if we have inspired you in any way, we would really appreciate you leaving us a comment.

Ink. Stamp. Share Blog Hop – Mini Catalogue

Hi, Welcome to our Ink. Stamp. Share Blog Hop where we have lots of projects featuring products from the Mini Catalogue this month.

Ink Stamp Share Monthly Blog Hop Header

I wanted to use the Merry Music Embossing Folder in this card as it’s one of my Top 5 products in the Mini. You can check out full Top 5 list here.

ink sta

I embossed the darker of the foil sheets with the Merry Music Embossing Folder and then dragged my Black Stazon ink pad over it to give this effect. The card design was kept simple as I wanted the embossing to be the focus.

Some Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper and Mint Macaron Velvet Ribbon soften the black embossing. A black heat embossed sentiment coordinates with the embossed panel to finish off this card.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today and I hope you are inspired to try this technique with your foil cardstock. Next on our hop is Karen Egan.
