New at su Blog Hop – Simply Marbleous

Hello, Welcome to the New at SU Blog Hop for January and we are sharing Sale-A-Bration goodies with you.

New at Su Blog Hop Header

If you are new to the whole Sale-A-Bration thing, here’s the deal. For every $90 you spend in store (this is the amount in Australia) you get to select a FREE PRODUCT from our Sale-A-Bration Catalogue. There is no limit on the number of products you can earn so it’s a great time to stock up on all those craft essentials and get some freebies while you’re at it.

My feature Sale-A-Bration (SAB) product today is the Simply Marbleous Designer Series Paper. This is a freebie with a $90 order. You get 48 sheets of 6″ x 6″ double-sided paper in a selection of colours.

I die cut both sides of the So Saffron paper to create a pattern for the bottom half of my card. As a border in the middle of the card I added some Tear n’ Tape, applying Gilded Leafing and some twine coloured with a Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend.

The bird image was stamped on Basic White Cardstock and fussy cut. I then stamped the bird on the Coastal Cabana piece of the Simply Marbleous DSP, fussy cut it and adhered it over the main image. By placing your image where there is more shading on the DSP, the bird will have some pretty colouring and ‘done for you’ shading.

I curved the sentiment to fit on the vellum circle and heat embossed in Black. Some Matte Dots coloured with a Light Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend add the finishing touch to this card.

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my project. For a list of products used, please check the end of this post. Please click on the Next button to see Anke Heim’s lovely project.

aWow Blog Hop – Cas(e) the Mini Switcharoo

Hello and welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop. We are a group of crafters around the world who love Stampin’ Up! products and on the second Wednesday of each month, you will get to enjoy what we have to share. Thank you to Angie Mackenzie for all the organization you put into this month after month. I love taking part in this hop and enjoy all the themes that you come up with.

This month our theme is to Case(e) a project from the Mini Catalogue and switch out the stamp set and colour. I’ve chosen the box on Page 41 to case.

I took the layout and made it into a card using the In the Moment stamp set. I fussy cut the image and coloured with Stampin’ Blends then added the girl onto the leafy die cut from the Birds & More dies. The cushions were stamped and cut out from Subtles DSP.

To create the Fresh Freesia and White panel I used some Fresh Freesia card scrap and cut it into 1cm strips. I added it across a panel of Basic White cardstock (I eyeballed this as I couldn’t be bothered measuring it!). This is a great way of using up scraps of both cardstock and DSP and creates interesting backgrounds.

To finish off I added some of the White Frayed Ribbon which I cut in half (which frayed it even more).

Currently, every $90 you spend in store will earn you a free Sale-A-Bration reward. This offer is available until 28th February. All products I have used are listed at the end of this post.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have been inspired to try something new. Next on our hop is the talented Cheryll Miller. Please visit all the participant blogs for lots of inspiration.

Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop – Sketch Challenge

Hello and a Blessed Sunday to you from Melbourne.

Stamping Inkspirations Blog Header

Welcome to our Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop where we have a Sketch Challenge. For an added challenge we could add some ‘shimmer and shine’ as well.

I wanted to create a card with a soft colour palette and yet adding some shimmer. For the border at the bottom, I layered 2 strips of Designer Series Paper. The Gray from the Simply Elegant Specialty DSP tied in with the card base and balanced out with the pinks.

The flowers were stamped in Basic Gray ink and coloured with a combination of Flirty Flamingo, Petal Pink and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends.

Then I decided to experiment with Embossing Paste and masks. I applied the paste over a mask and then applied the Gilded Leafing over it. The paste makes it stick. I used my fingers to smoothen the Leafing out.

In this photo you can see the rough shape of the doily image which is formed by the Gilded Leafing which adds an interesting background and I was rather happy with the look.

This piece of Cardstock was layered onto another piece of Basic White Cardstock which was blended with Blushing Bride ink for a softer look.

I used part of a sentiment from the Host Better Place stamp set, cutting it down to size and layering it onto 2 extra pieces of Basic Black Cardstock to give it more stability.

I have listed the products I have used on this card at the bottom of this post. During Sale-A-Bration, which runs until 28th February, all orders over $90, will earn a free Sale-A-Bration product.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you have enjoyed what I have shared. Please follow onto Annette Ball’s blog by clicking on the ‘Next’ button and please leave us a comment as you check out all the beautiful creations.

Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop – Sounds of Christmas

Hello, Welcome to the Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop with what has to be one of my all time favourite themes – Sounds of Christmas.

Stamping Inkspirations Blog Header

Christmas carols are probably my favourite part of the season. Ever ever since I can remember, our home was filled with the beautiful carols and songs. Having a mother who was a choir director meant I had additional exposure to Christmas carols going from one carol service to the next. When I had my daughter, I carried on the same tradition with her – taking her along with me from one choir practice to the next, with Christmas being our busiest season.

Selecting a favourite carol or song was tough – there are so many traditional and modern Gospel songs I love. In the Bleak Mid Winter has been a favourite since a child. I remember my mum having an old carol book which had illustrations and I used to love playing this on the piano. I love this carol for 2 reasons – the harmonies are beautiful and for this verse in particular.

What can I give Him,
poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd
I would bring a lamb
If I were a wiseman,
I would do my part
Yet what I can I give Him,
Give my hea
rt.
Poem by Christina Rossetti 1872
Composer Gustav Holst

I printed the lyrics and tore the paper, blending Misty Moonlight and Early Espresso over it to age it. Then using the torn edges to create an uneven edge, I went over the back panel of Basic White Cardstock with these same colours which gave it a little bit of a wintry night look. To depict my mum’s carol book with it’s pictures, I stamped the printed lyrics with the trees from the Peaceful Place stamp set in Misty Moonlight stamped off.

Of course, the Merry Melody Embossing Folder had to have a part in this project and I added a little of blending over it to bring out the music notes.

Another set of trees were die cut. To this I added Shimmer White Embossing Paste. Once dry, I stamped the tree image in Misty Moonlight on top of the embossing paste to give it that variation in colour. I’ve layered some ribbon and coloured the Pool Party ribbon in Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends to coordinate with my card.

aWow Blog Hop – Something New, Something Old

Hi friends, Welcome to our final Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop for the year. Each month on the second Wednesday, we share inspiration from around each of our corner of the world.

Our theme is so fitting for this time of the year where we say goodbye to the old and welcome in the new. At Stampin’ Up!, we are celebrating the launch of a new catalogue and saying goodbye to old favourites. I’ve endeavoured to share this in my card today with a mix of retiring and new products.

My inspiration for this card came from a mood board I had seen. Each month I give my team some Creative Challenges and I set this as an inspiration challenge.

My layout inspiration was the square cushion and I chose the Ever Eden DSP for the centre panel. I loved the Blackberry Bliss cushion in there (who else views the world in Stampin’ Up! Colours?) and decided on that as it was an unusual colour palette.

I chose the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set with it’s beautiful autumnal leaves with lovely texture-look images for my focal image.

I sponged a piece of Basic White Cardstock with Blackberry Bliss, Soft Suede and Garden Green (picking up on colours from my inspiration photo). Then I die cut the leaves.

I stamped the large dotted image in Versamark over the die cut leaves and heat embossed in gold. That splattering of gold just adds a little something to those leaves which I love.

The sentiment is from the …..stamp set which we got in our swag box from our last Stampin’ Up! conference. Do you love those butterflies? How sweet are they? That was another gift we got at our conference. I’m going to be using those butterflies a lot in the next few months.

For a full list of products used please scroll to the bottom of this post. Today only, you get FREE SHIPPING on all orders over $45 so it’s a great time to get your favourite products.

New at su Blog Hop – Holiday

Hello and welcome to our Holiday hop for the New at SU Blog Hop. I’ve chosen the bird from the Happy Holly Days stamp set to feature on my card.

New at Su Blog Hop Header

The image was stamped in Black Stazon and coloured in with Polished Pink, Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake ink refills using a Water Painter.

I used a Polished Pink Ombre Gift Bag to cover the base of the card. To this, I added some Shimmer White Embossing Paste using one of our masks. Then I layered a piece of Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper onto Kraft Cardstock.

The sentiment was die cut using the Layering Circles dies. You can get these dies during our Seasonal Sale which ends today, at 20% off.
