Ink. Stamp. Share – New Year’s Eve Blog Hop

Happy New Year! Welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne and we have hit 2021. Who’s excited for all the promise this year brings. Our special Ink. Stamp. Share Showcase Blog Hop is featuring beautiful products from the 2021 January-June Mini Catalogue.

I’ve used several of the brand new products to create this cute card. The Hey Gorgeous stamp set has fun images of ladies with catchy sentiments. I coloured this image with Stampin’ Blends and fussy cut it out.

I then laid it on a piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock which has been die cut with the new Stitched with Whimsy Dies. These nested dies create the beautiful stitched pattern in square and rectangle shapes. I then die cut it with the Stitched Rectangle Dies. One of the die cuts from the Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty Paper adds some lovely detailed leaves as a backdrop to the stamped image.

My Night of Navy card base is covered with the Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper. This is a free product you can earn for every $90 you spend during Sale-A-Bration which runs from 5th January – 28th February. There is a lovely selection of products you can get for free.

The flower was created using the Strawberry Builder Punch. I punched out 8 strawberries from the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper. I used 5 petals on the bottom layer and 3 on the top using liquid glue to attach them together. A Stampin’ Dimensional was added between the layers. The edge of each ‘petal’ was sponged with Rococo Rose ink and the petals were curled with a bone folder.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today .I hope you have enjoyed this card and perhaps add some items on your Wish List.

Stampers Showcase Blog Hop – Sale-A-Bration Pre-Order

Welcome to our Stampers Showcase Blog Hop for December. All our projects will feature products from the brand new Stampin’ Up! 2021 January-June Mini Catalogue.

Stampers Showcase Blog Header Hop Header Hop Header

One of the perks of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is that we get to pre-order products before it becomes available to all our lovely customers. Hence, the theme of our blog hop this month.

I have chosen the Hydrangea Hill Suite which is found on Pages 18-20 of the catalogue. I started off by using the beautiful Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper to cover the Whisper White card base. The DSP has a colour palette of Rococo Rose, Highland Heather, Seaside Spray, Misty Moonlight and Old Olive.

If you are a lover of pastel shades then you are going to love this suite. You can see that the paper is gorgeous. This suite also has some Mercury Acetate in Highland Heather and Rococo Rose which looks stunning.

The two-step Hydrangea Haven stamp set and Hydrangea dies also form part of this suite. Purchase these together and save 10% on the bundle. To create depth on the hydrangea I stamped the outline in Basic Gray and added the two-step stamping in Seaside Spray for the flower and Granny Apple Green with a touch of Mossy Meadow sponged on. I die cut a second flower from DSP with the detailed die. The petals of the individual flowers pop out and I used the Take your Pick Tool to lift some of these out for dimension.

In the dies there is one that looks like a border of flowers. This actually die cuts 9 individual flowers in one go. I added these on top which created a more dimensional look.

The sentiment has been dotted with some of the Pastel Pearls which are part of this suite and add a touch of elegance.

The white outlined leaves were added to create a contrast, making them stand out against the Mossy Meadow DSP. A bow tied with the Flowers for Every Season twine was perfect with it’s Seaside Spray and hint of Silver to coordinate with this DSP.

New at SU Blog Hop – Warm & Cozy

Hi, Welcome to the New at SU Blog Hop for December. It’s hard to believe that this year is nearly over – we made it! Our theme this month is Warm & Cozy. in Melbourne, this time of year is generally warm and not so cozy. However, my card today reflects the feelings that Christmas brings.

New at SU Blog Hop, Header

For me, Christmas is about celebrating the birth of Christ and enjoying this time with my family and loved ones. To capture our theme, I chose the Heartwarming Hugs DSP because of it’s traditional Christmas colours and of course with a name like that it definitely speaks ‘cozy’ to me.

New at SU Blog Hop, December 2020, Wrapped in Christmas, Trimming the Town DSP,  Stampin Up!, SU, Christmas Blessings

I added a house fussy cut from the Trimming the Town DSP as it reminds me of the warmth of spending time with our loved ones at Christmas. The sentiment is from the Wrapped in Christmas stamp set which has lovely sentiments and I particularly like the font on this one. With a simple layout such as this, it’s easy to create several of these Christmas cards to give out. A handmade card is always appreciated.

aWow Blog Hop – Something New, Something Old

AWOW Blog Hop Header

Welcome to the final Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop for 2020. It definitely has been aWOW year with lots of fun themes and projects to hop through. Thanks to Angie Mackenzie for inviting me to be be part of this team and for leading and organizing this blog hop so well. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators representative of the Stampin’ Up! markets around the world. It’s sometime Wednesday in each of the time zones we are from when this blog hop goes live.

AWOW Blog Hop Participant photos

Our theme this month is Something New, Something Old with a focus on the brand new year of 2021 that is approaching us. I have used some products from the Fine Art Floral Suite which is a brand new product from the January – June Mini Catalogue. That covers my ‘new’. For the ‘old’ I have gone back to basics. Somewhere we all began when we first started out stamping – Simple Stamping. I’ve shown 3 versions of this card, each time stepping it up.

Beginner

This card is a quick make and would be great for someone who is new to stamping or if you need a card in a hurry, I stamped the flowers in Sahara Sand on the Sahara Sand card base. This provides some interest to a plain card while still keeping it simple and quick to make.

A panel of Designer Series Paper and Mossy Meadow cardstock add interest to this simple card. The Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper is gorgeous and will coordinate with several colours. When I want to create quick cards I always reach for our DSP as it gives me beautiful cards with minimal effort plus being double sided, it gives more choice.I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy, punched out with the Classic Label punch and cut the ends at an angle to match my ribbon.

Casual

This card was stepped up by die cutting the centre panels and the sentiment as well. I also added some Antique Corner embellishments which can be found in the Annual Catalogue.

Avid

For this final card I used the Stamparatus to stamp the bouquet of flowers in Balmy Blue, Terracotta Tile and Mossy Meadow.

To make the flowers stand out against the DSP, I added a label from the Stitched so Sweetly Dies. This has been embossed with the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder which is retiring and that formed another part of my ‘old’ theme.

As I completed this card the Best Wishes sentiment tied in with another way I did think of our theme this month. Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue … I think this would make a lovely wedding card (it even has some Balmy Blue in it!). The Art Gallery suite is going to capture you with it’s Gilded Leafing and Golden Acetate sheets. You can find it from pages 32-24 of your new Mini Catalogue.

Stampers Showcase Blog Hop – Winter Wonderland

Hello and welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne, Australia. It’s 12am, 1st of December when this blog hop goes live and we are officially in Summer and so far away from a Winter Wonderland. Our theme for the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop this month is Winter/Holidays.

Stampers Showcase Blog Header Hop Header Hop Header

I immediately wanted to create a winter themed project using the Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper. This paper was brought out last Christmas and it was so popular it was brought out again this Christmas. It’s got beautiful photographic images of wintry, snowy scenery on one side, while the other side is accented with silver foil which is perfect for all year round projects.

I combined this with the Wishes & Wonder Bundle to create a card and gift tag with Blushing Bride adding a lovely shade of pink against the crisp white. It almost feels like a fairytale. I resisted the urge to add some Wink of Stella on that sleigh just in case it looked too much ‘princess carriage’ like.

I just had to use the embroidered ribbon from our new catalogue as it added to the rustic, wintry feel of this card.

Ink.Stamp.Share Blog Hop – Christmas Tree Decorations

ink stamp share header

Hi friend, Welcome to the November Ink. Stamp. Share Blog Hop. I’m so glad I’ve got this blog hop as I’ve been in a bit of a crafting rut this past week and this has forced me to get on the job! It’s a little bit different today as we are sharing handmade Christmas tree decorations with you. Being in a craft rut and trying to come up with something different was a challenge.

Gold hoops were going to be my featured product and my decorations evolved from this. This was then combined with the beautiful Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper to create these cute ornaments which could also double up as gift tags.

Each one has an embossed panel and I’ve used various punches and dies for the main image. The hoops were added with glue dots.

I love the layered ribbons with the lace trim adding a vintage look to these charming ornaments. I think I’ll be making a few more of these to gift to some work colleagues as I really enjoyed making them and they were really easy to make.

If you would like to give these decorations a try, I’ve got a complete list of products at the end of this post.

Thank you for stopping by Stamping Flair in Melbourne today and I hope you enjoy all the projects that you see as you visit everyone in our blog hop.
