Kre8tors Blog Hop August 2020 – Anniversary

Hi and welcome to Stamping Flair and the monthly Kre8tors Blog Hop. I’m a little bit sad because it’s the last time we’ll be hopping together for the time being. Thank you to Melissa Tennison who has worked so hard putting this blog hop together each month. I’ve had so much fun being a part of it. 

Kre8tors Blog Hop August Color Challenge

However, we still have all the fun of this month. So make sure you check out all the blogs for lots of inspiration. Our theme is anniversaries. Usually I would create a floral, feminine card but this time I created more with my partner in mind. So my card took on a more masculine feel. 

I started by sponging Granny Apple Green and Misty Moonlight along the bottom of the Whisper White cardstock panel. Then I embossed it with the Tasteful Textile embossing folder. Taking my Versamark ink pad, I roughly ran it down the ends of the cardstock and poured the Gold Embossing Powder over it. I brushed off any excess to achieve a streaky look then heat embossed it. 

The sentiment is the die from the Love You More set and it actually says ‘Love you more than’. I just used the words ‘ Love you’ which I die cut from the Rainbow Glimmer Paper

I hope you have been inspired by my creation. Please leave me a comment as I would love to hear from you. Next on our hop is Annette Elias. Click on the Next button to see her lovely project.

Colour Combo Blog Hop – August 2020

Hi,

Welcome to another Colour Combo Blog Hop. I’m a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Melbourne, Australia. Today, we are mixing Rich Razzleberry, Mint Macaron and Soft Suede for our blog hop.  Quite an unusual colour palette with the Soft Suede in the mix but it sure gets the creative mind working. 

Colour Combo Blog Hop, August 2020

Mint Macaron as a colour always makes me think of macarons. The idea began to form in my head with macarons and berries and milkshakes – mint and pale pink. I had something close to macarons – and that was cookies. It was time to open my Nothing’s Better than Bundle which just arrived in my last delivery. Now this is a bundle that at first didn’t catch my eye in the Annual Catalogue. However, I saw so many cute projects made with it that I just had to get it. Have you experienced this before? 

 

I started by creating 2 panels of water colour washed cardstock in Mint Macaron and Rich Razzleberry. The softness that the wash creates was the look I wanted. Once dry, I used the Best Plaid die to cut out the Rich Razzleberry panel and cut that down. This is a very quick and easy background to create. 

The cookies are two-step stamped in Soft Suede.  For the base layer, I stamped off twice to achieve a very light shade. Then I stamped the choc-chips in full strength Soft Suede. 

Does this card resonate with you at the moment? In lock down, we sure are running to the pantry and refrigerator a whole lot more than we would normally do!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this fun card and perhaps I may have convinced you to add this to your Wish List if you don’t already own it.  Click on the Next button to go to Caroline Peck’s blog.

Joy of Sets Blog Hop – Reading is Fonts-amental

Hello,

Welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne. So glad that you are able to stop over at my blog on this Sunday morning. We have a very interesting theme in the Joy of Sets Blog Hop this month. Reading is FONTS-amental. 

Joy of Sets Blog Hop, FONTS-Amental, Stampin' Up!

Fonts on projects can set the scene and I did have to do a little bit of thinking for this one as I wanted to capture the ‘Fonts’ in a special way. Was I going to have a sentiment with an interesting font or create multi-coloured letters?There were several choices. I decided on creating an interesting background with fonts.

My card started today with my idea of using the Stampin’ Up! Camouflage stamp set.  As you can see, there is not one bit of font on this stamp so I worked around it. A scrap of copy paper I had on my desk was my next tool in getting together a fun idea I had in my mind. However, I needed to find the write sentiment for it. I settled on a sentiment from the Silhouette Scenes stamp set

I tore the edge of the piece of copy paper so it was uneven and then made another piece the same. This formed my mask for stamping. I just held it lightly in place and stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso right down the cardstock, varying the placement of the sentiment. Then I stamped the trees in Pear Pizzazz over this.

Some trees from the Rooted in Nature stamp set, inked in Pear Pizzazz and edged with Mossy Meadow has been added on top. I coloured the copper kettle and mug in Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends, adding some shading with the Light So Saffron Stampin’ Blend. 

For some extra ‘fontness’ I added a banner die cut from the map in the World of Good Designer Series Paper. I like how this tied in with my ‘Happy Trails’ sentiment – perfect for someone who is about to have an adventure. 

Some linen thread and wood leaf embellishments complete this card inspired by nature. 

For more Fonts-amental inspiration make sure you hop through all the blogs. Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see you back here very soon. Click on the Next button to follow onto Brenda Nelson’s blog to see her beautiful project.

Stamp n’ Hop – Favourite Bundle

Hi,

Welcome to Stamping Flair on this Saturday morning. It’s a weekend like no other here in Melbourne, where we are in lock down but us crafters need not fear boredom. We have supplies and unfinished projects to last a lifetime! I hope you are all keeping well and in good spirits. You are in the right place to get you into creative mode.

Today I’m hopping with my friends from the Stamp ‘N Hop team and we are showcasing our favourite bundle. Now this one was a tough choice as there are so many beautiful bundles available in the Annual Catalogue as well as the Mini Holiday Catalogue.Stamp n' Hop, August 2020, Favourite Bundle

I chose the Forever Fern bundle for it’s versatility to offer quick and simple cards which look really beautiful. This bundle is perfect for the beginner stamper as it offers the capacity to step-up your projects as you become more comfortable with stamping. For the Advanced crafter, the coordinating dies offer you additional leaves and elements to add more pizzazz to your projects. 

Stamp N' Hop, Favourite Bundle, Forever Greenery, Gold Lasercut paper

I added the beautiful Gold Laser cut paper which is part of the Forever Greenery Suite. A poppy from the Painted Poppies stamp set, coloured in Flirty Flamingo, adds a soft contrast to the shades of green on this card. Die cut leaves in Sahara Sand and Soft Sea Foam coordinate with that beautiful Designer Series Paper. 

Join me this afternoon on my Facebook Live where I’ll show you how to create this card and give you some fun tips and techniques. All the products I have used on this card are listed at the bottom of this post.  Thank you for visiting me today. I hope you have enjoyed my project and I would love for you to leave me a comment.

Stampers Showcase Blog Hop – Gift Packaging

Welcome to another Stampers Showcase blog hop where we are showcasing everything to do with gift packaging. I am so glad that you are here visiting me at my blog, Stamping Flair in Melbourne today. Stampin’ Up! offers us so many possibilities for gift wrapping by providing us with cute boxes and bags and the beautiful products that we can decorate them or create our own gift packaging. 

Stampers Showcase Blog Hop Header

My projects feature the beautiful Boho Indigo Product Medley which you will find on Page 9 of your Annual Catalogue. It is filled with a whole lot of amazing products to let your creativity take over.

Product Medley Includes

*11 piece photopolymer stamp set
*12 piece Boho Indigo Die
*48 sheets of 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper, 8 each of 6 double-sided designs
*Very Vanilla 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) dry embossed sheets, 2 each of 3 designs
*Die cuts with gold foil accents, 2 sheets each of 3 designs

Mini Gift Box

I used one of our Mini Shipping Boxes and covered it with a sheet of the DSP which I cut to size. As the paper is 6″x6″ it didn’t wrap around but I liked the look of the Kraft box peeking slightly through as it matched my vase and the look of the project. 

The Very Vanilla embossed panel comes in the Product Medley as does the gold embossed leaf. You get a variety of these and they are just beautiful accent pieces. A panel of cardstock was heat embossed in gold using the leaf stamp and then sponged Mint Macaron and Garden Green over to create the border at the bottom. 

Gift Tag

I made a matching gift tag as beautifully packaged gifts need a beautiful gift tag.

I made the best use of the items in the Product Medley including the label which I stamped and sponged on. The accents of green and Cinnamon Cider work well against the blues of this suite.

Ink. Stamp. Share Blog Hop – Other Celebrations

Hi,

Great to have you stop by my blog, Stamping Flair today. Welcome to the Ink. Stamp. Share blog hop for July where we are sharing projects focusing on projects other than birthdays. 

I picked something a little bit different as I thought of students who would be finishing the school year in a few months. Generally, this would involve some travel but that’s not to be at the moment. However, I created a card with ‘Bon Voyage’ theme for a traveller using the World of Good suite. 

My card started with the beautiful Designer Series Paper as the base for my layout. The Brass Foil detail and the vintage look just adds so much character to projects. Next I die cut the globe from Sahara Sand cardstock, leaving all the pieces in place. I used double sided tape at the back to hold it all together.

A label from the Hippo & Friends Dies embossed with one of the dies from the World Map dies adds more texture. To create the feather I inked the stamp with Seaside Spray and sponged the edges with Misty Moonlight. Then I spritzed the stamp with water and stamped onto Shimmery White cardstock. This gives a lovely water colour look. Instead of using the die to cut it out, I fussy cut it, feathering the edges using my Paper Snips.

 I think the Campology stamp set coordinates well the Beautiful World stamp set with it’s outdoor elements and the binoculars were just what I needed for this card. Now camping is definitely not me but I just love this stamp set. Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends was used to colour the binoculars and then I fussy cut them out. 

I hope you have enjoyed my card using these outdoor style stamp sets. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you liked. Follow the blog hop through for more great inspiration for all the various occasions in your lives. Click on the Next button to see Laura Mackie’s beautiful project.
