Kylie’s International Blog Highlights January 2020

Hi Crafty Friends,

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. It’s a fun time in the Stampin’ Up! year with Sale-A-Bration in full swing. You get to earn free products right through until 31st March. I’m featuring several products from both the Mini and Sale-A-Bration catalogues for my card today which I’ve created for Kylie’s International Blog Highlights.Kylie's International Blog Highlights

Our theme is Thank you – showing appreciation to those around us who help us, show care, provide support. So many people we come across who help us daily – at a restaurant, in the supermarket, at a school crossing, a teacher – it’s a lovely gesture that we can share what we love by giving out a thank you card.

I’ve used the Under My Umbrella bundle to create this cute card. The card base has been embossed with the Stone embossing folder which is part of the Power of Hope Sale-A-Bration free bundle.

Thank you card, Stampin' Up!, kylie's International blog highlights

The bundle consists of a photopolymer stamp set and a punch. The additional images in the stamp set of flowers and gumboots are really cute. 

Under My Umbrella Bundle

I stamped the images on the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper, punching out the umbrella and fussy cutting the gumboots. These were layered on the Golden Honey Specialty DSP which is another free Sale-A-Bration offering. The flowers were coloured with Stampin’ Blends and fussy cut.

ESAD 2020 Mini Catalogue and Sale-a-Bration Blog Hop

Hi,

Happy new year! Welcome to Stamping Flair and the ESAD Mini Catalogue Blog Hop. I am a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator from Blind Bight down the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria.

What is ESAD

I am so excited to be able to share with you some cards that I’ve made from the beautiful new Mini Catalogue that we have and the additional Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

I’ve chosen the Tropical Oasis suite to feature today – it’s my favourite. I think it’s the beautiful colours combined with a touch of vintage and floral – everything that I just love. 

 

Tropical Oasis Suite, Stampin' Up!

The suite consists of a stamps and dies, Embossing Folder, trinkets, Memories & More card pack,
Burlap Trim and Saddle Brown Stazon ink  (Product Code #153941)

For my first card, I have fussy cut some elements from the Memories & More card pack. The edges of my card base and fussy cut images have been distressed with the Saddle Brown ink. I am loving this colour – it is unlike any of the browns in our Classic range.

I embossed the Whisper White cardstock with the Coastal Weave embossing folder. Doesn’t that pattern just make you feel like you’re in the tropics? Then I added Pear Pizzazz ink over it using a sponge dauber. I used the debossed side of the embossing folder which then picked up the raised lines of the pattern.

I think this card would make a great bon voyage or happy retirement card.

My next card features the beautiful stamp set and the feature flower in it. I stamped it on Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper in Saddle Brown Stazon ink. Stazon ink is required when watercolouring. 

A combination of these watercolours were used for the flower and 3 leaves.

  • Daffodil Delight
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Melon Mambo
  • Early Espresso
  • Granny Apple Green
  • Old Olive
  • Garden Green

When you’ve got another stamp set that has the word ‘tropical’ in it, the combining of products from the Tropical Chic stamp set was something that just had to be done. I love how the leaves coordinate and there’s even a sheet of DSP that matches. 

My sentiment was stamped on a label made with the Label Me Lovely punch. I extended this label and created a matte in Grapefruit Grove. You can create any size label you like. All you need is a strip of cardstock that is 5cm wide. Then insert into the punch from the top so only one end is getting punched. Do the same for the other side and you have a custom label.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and I hope you have been inspired with the projects I have shared with you today. All products used are listed at the end of this post.

Ink, Stamp, Share Blog Hop – Christmas

Hi,

Welcome to my blog today. I really appreciate you taking time out of your day to see what I have created. If it’s your first time here, I am a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in the South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia. I love what I do and am so blessed to be able to share my creativity with so many lovely people and today I get to share some Christmas themed fun with  YOU!

I’m hopping with other talented crafters from around the world and we are focused on Christmas – with 23 days to go until the big day we hope to inspire you with projects that will help you get ready for it.

Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop Christmas 2019

When I’m stuck for time, I look for quick and easy cards that I can reproduce. It seems that no matter how early I start, each year, I’m still madly making cards in December. I made a whole batch of these and they are so easy and quick to complete. 

Start of by embossing the front of your Night of Navy card base. Mount the Stitched Rectangle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Plaid reindeer with a simple layout

I die cut the deer from the Detailed Deer dies from the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper. I used different sheets and was able to get 5 deer out of 1 sheet of 6″x6″ paper. These dies coordinate with the Dashing Deer stamp set

The sentiments were all stamped in Shaded Spruce (to make life easy). I created several small banners and embossed them in one run through the die cutting machine. Note: When pushed for time and creating multiples, use embossing folders that don’t have horizontal or vertical patterns so if you put your paper in crooked it’s not going to matter. I did tell you I was in a rush!

I hope you have been inspired by my card and despite the busyness of the season you get to create a handmade card to share with someone. If you give this card a try or have any comments, I would love to hear from you so please leave me a message below.

Stampers Showcase Blog Hop – Winter Wonderland

Hi friends,

Thank you for visiting me today. I’m a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Blind Bight, which is in Melbourne, Australia. I’ve been busy creating Christmas cards for classes and orders over the past few weeks and we have quite a few stamp sets that would fit the Winter Wonderland theme.

I chose the Let it Snow suite. The specialty Designer Series Paper in this suite is so much fun and I love the unusual colour combination. One side of the papers have glitter and really make for fun projects. 

 

Let it Snow suite, Snowman handmade card

I used the Stamparatus to stamp the gingham background. This allowed me to re-stamp if any of the checks hadn’t stamped well. Then I die cut the label shape. The snowman has been stamped in Tuxedo Black ink with the hat being punched directly from the Designer Series Paper. Some images on the DSP can be punched out, making it really easy to make a quick batch of cards.

The scarf is from the Playful Penguins stamp set which I fussy cut. I coloured the carrot and buttons with Pumpkin Pie and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Markers, adding Shimmery Crystal Effects on the buttons to give them a bit of gloss.

Joy of Sets Header Christmas

Only 31 days until Christmas! Are you filled with excitement, anticipation or a little bit anxious over everything that needs to be completed in the coming weeks? Well, you have come to the right place to get some inspiration for Christmas projects and also some relaxing ‘me’ time while you hop through the blogs.

It’s ‘anything goes’ Christmas style so we are going to have some fun with our projects. My cards feature the all inclusive Most Wonderful Time Product Medley. I have used just one of the designs in the Designer Series Paper Pack. You get 8 sheets each of 6 double sided designs.  Most Wonderful Time Christmas Tree with Ice Glitter

I stamped the tree in Golden Glitz Delicata ink and coloured with Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. Then I added some Ice Stampin’ Glitter. This adds so much sparkle to this tree and lots of texture.

My next card features another simple layout.Most Wonderful Time, Stampin' Up! handmade card

The Product Medley comes with 12 gold foil card fronts and I cut one of these to form a horizontal strip across the centre of the card. The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set. The Most Wonderful Time product medley provides you with so many options for creating a variety of projects in a fun, all-inclusive kit.

Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop – 3D Project

Hi friends,

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop July Designer Series Paper

I appreciate you stopping by my blog, Stamping Flair and taking the time to have a look at my project. Today I’m blog hopping with fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and we are showcasing 3D projects using Stampin’ Up! products. My project involves no stamping at all.

I have created a very simple, yet fun wreath using the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper.

Wrapped in Plaid paper used to make a Christmas Wreath

To create the wreath, cut up your paper into 3″ squares. Then add a strip of Tear and Tape to one side. Roll up the square from the opposite side so the tape joins it together to form the cone. Create as many as required to form your circles. You can vary which patterns you would like to use as well.

How to make a paper wreath using Stampin' Up! DSP

Then attach this to your frame using hot glue. I tend to get myself in a mess with hot glue so I kept it to a minimum and it stayed attached without a problem. I got this frame from Spotlight and it came with a cord for hanging. For the centre, I took a doily, cut it in half, roughly pleated it and attached it with hot glue. 

Easy to make handmade wreath for Christmas

For more 3D inspiration, make sure you follow the hop all the way through. Below is a list of participants.
