New at su Blog Hop – He’s the Man Suite

Hi crafty friend, Welcome to our suite showcase. The 2022-2023 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue has 10 varied and beautiful suites. Each of these suites come with it’s own range of products to make creating easy.

My suite I’ve chosen to showcase today was one of the first two I bought in my pre-order. The other was the Tea Boutique suite. I could see so many possibilities with the He’s the Man suite. What sets it apart from the other suites is the Designer Series Paper which comes with 2 sheets of die cut elements. These are so great for creating really quick projects.

The dies in the He’s All That bundle could be stand-alone dies and I love all the labels and shapes that are there which you can use in many ways. For this card, I used one of the label dies to die cut the Starry Sky Cardstock which I embossed with the Timber Embossing Folder. This added a nice contrast against the rustic colours.

The tools are from the die cut DSP sheet and all my elements were layered onto a Stitched Rectangle which was blended with Crushed Curry and Early Espresso ink.

aWow Blog Hop – Let’s Hear it for the Boys!

Thank you for visiting me in Melbourne for our monthly trip Around the World on Wednesday. Our theme is ‘Let’s Hear it for the Boys’ with a focus on the men in our lives.

Awow Blog Hop, Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop Header

I was not quite sure which direction I was going to take with this as my partner Adrian has several passions. He loves kayaking and surfing so I initially wanted to go along that theme. Then I shifted gears as he is a talented musician, music teacher and accompanist and I wanted to create a card with that in mind. In fact we met in church where he was the pianist/organist and I was a chorister so this card seemed perfect.

I’ve made a Centre Step Easel Card which is a really easy fun fold to create.

CENTRE STEP EASEL MEASUREMENTS

  • Card Front – 21cm x 14.8cm (scored in half at 10.5cm)
  • On the top half of the card cut at 4cm and 10.8 upto the score line.
  • Cut out these sections.
  • Fold the remaining centre portion in half to form the easel.

To create the piano keys I cut strips of Basic White Cardstock at 1.5cm and Basic Black Cardstock at 1cm. The Black keys were rounded using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch.

For the inside of the card I used the waves from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set to stamp the background in Tahitian Tide and Bermuda Bay (stamped off). I just had to incorporate something of the ocean (at least in name!).

The music notes were hand drawn with the Basic Black Marker and I added some Matte Black Dots to give them dimension.

When folded this card will fit in a 6″ square envelope. However, this might not end up in an envelope as I’ll probably just hand it to Adrian! By making the front panel smaller,this card will fit in a regular C6 envelope.

Although this is probably not your regular ‘guy’ card, it suits my guy and is suited for any music lover.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today and I hope you have enjoyed my creation. For lots of inspiration for masculine makes make sure you travel the world with us and check out all the amazing work of these ladies, beginning with lovely Cheryll Miller.

New at su Blog Hop – In-Colours 2022-2024

Hello friend, Welcome to the New at SU Blog Hop for May. Today we are sharing with you inspiration using the 2022-2024 In Colours – Sweet Sorbet, Parakeet Party, Tahitian Tide, Starry Sky and Orchid Oasis.

I’ve picked probably my 3 favourites from this set to use on my card today with the For the Record stamp set. I really love how Tahitian Tide, Parakeet Party and Sweet Sorbet blend together.

To create the multi-coloured look on the record, I used the Stamparatus and Tahitian Tide and Parakeet Party In-Colours. I coloured in the record randomly with the Markers and stamped it several times. Then I inked up the stamp with the 2 colours and spritzed the stamp and re-stamped. This gave the lovely watercolour-washed look. I added some extra definition, individually marking some of the record lines with the Markers. I just love this effect which can be achieved with our our Stampin’ Write Markers.

Some splatters of Sweet Sorbet ink were added by flicking the brush tip of the Marker against the lid. I added some music notes from the Sweet Songbirds stamp set in keeping with the music theme.

Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop – Lots of Love

Stamping Inkspirations Blog Header

Hello, Welcome to a sketch challenge for our Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop. I’m using some products from the Stampin’ Up! January – June Mini Catalogue for my card today.

The Paradise Palms bundle is a favourite of mine and on this card I’ve just used the dies. I die cut the palm trees from White Cardstock, colouring it with Stampin’ Blends. Then I added a second layer of the leaves for extra depth.

I drew a border around the Stitched Rectangle with the Blushing Bride Marker using a ruler as a guide. This added just enough contrast without the need to add an extra layer.

You can download the Recipe Card for this project here.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting me in Melbourne and I hope to see you back soon. Next on our hop is the talented Jo Blackman. Please follow the hop through to see all the interpretations of this sketch.

Awow Blog Hop – Sketch 101

Hi friends, Welcome to our Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop where on the second Wednesday of each month we share creative inspiration using Stampin’ Up! products. This month we have a sketch challenge – my favourite type to work with.

Awow Blog Hop, Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop Header

Sketches offer a great starting point for a project. Today you will see the different looks you can get with just 1 sketch and I hope you give it a try.

Each week on my Facebook Page, I feature a product and this week it’s the Home & Garden Bundle. So I’ve incorporated it with this layout to create a card for Dad. Great for a birthday card or for Father’s Day this has been combined with the He’s the Man suite from our new Catalogue.

The sentiment was inked in Versamark and Early Espresso and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. I felt that it needed to be a little bit darker so I coloured over the embossing with SU100 Stampin’ Blend which made it stand out. The oval was coloured with some Natural Tones Stampin’ Blends and I added the texture stamp from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set which gave it an old leather look which I loved.

I hope you have enjoyed my take on this sketch and stop by my Facebook Page to see me make it on my Creative Escape FB Live tonight.

Stampers Showcase Blog Hop – He’s All That

Hello and welcome to our Stampers Showcase blog hop. As demonstrators we get the perk of seeing a catalogue prior to it’s release. Not only that, we also get a chance to pre-order products. This is something I look forward to with each new release of a catalogue. Seeing and touching new products is so much fun! So today our group will be sharing projects featuring products which we could pre-order starting a few weeks back.

Stampers Showcase Blog Header Hop Header Hop Header

I’m sharing the He’s the Man suite which is on pages 78-79 of the catalogue. This suite comes complete with a stamp and die bundle, Designer Series Paper which also has die cut sheets and Rustic Metallic Dots.

With images of cars, bbqs, tools, outdoor activities, hobbies and more this is the must have suite for all your masculine projects. Combine it with many of our other stamp sets for more creativity.

He’s the Man Specialty DSP also comes with 2 sheets of die cut pieces

The die set comes with labels and lots of additional pieces which lend itself to collage-style layering. I die cut one of the labels and stamped the trees from the Campology stamp set which is a perfect fit with this suite. Then I blended Cajun Craze and Early Espresso ink around it. The diamond shape die cut was also shaded with the same colours.

I layered a couple of the die cuts from the DSP pack to create my focal point with the note-book piece being one of them. You can just see the script on the circle underneath. This was meant to be covered up but I like the collage feel and when you put all the words together it says ‘I’m – Wishing you a Happy Father’s Day!’

I used the Stamparatus to stamp my Father’s Day sentiment using Early Espresso and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Markers to create the dual-coloured sentiment. Using the Stamparatus allowed me to re-stamp a few times to get a deeper colour.
