Sketchtember Challenge – Day 16 This Birthday Piggy

It’s a good day today – Friday! What have you got planned this weekend? Are you heading off for the school holidays? Whatever you’re doing I hope you have a great time.

Did you catch my FB Live yesterday? I’ve got an ordering special which ends tomorrow so I hope you take advantage of it. All my newsletter subscribers will receive the 3 tutorials for this card free. If you aren’t subscribed to my newsletter you can subscribe here.

I’ve got a fun card using the This Birthday Piggy bundle for Day 16 of the Sketchtember Challenge. The dies in this bundle are part of the Stampin’ Up! Perfect Partners promotion and are only available while supplies last until 30th September. You will want to get these dies because they have some cute add ons to enhance your piggy images.

I was going for a fun look on this card and the Design a Daydream DSP provided the diffrent patterns to create the effect. This paper is a Host offering and you have the option to choose this with Stampin’ Rewards when your order is over $250 or your party sales reach $250.

If you want to host a craft party make sure you ask me about it. Great for birthdays, girls get togethers, school holiday fun, team building activities. These can be customised to what you like AND you get to enjoy the Host rewards.

I coloured the piggy image with Stampin’ Blends and added it to a Vellum die cut circle. Vellum provides a subtle contrast layer against the patterned DSP while not completely covering it.

Measurements

  • DSP 4cm x 12.8cm ( 1 1/2″ x 3 1/4″), 4cm x 7cm (1 1/2″ x 2 1/2″), 4cm x 5.5cm (1 1/2″ x 2 1/8″)
  • Blackberry Bliss Cardstock – 9.5cm x 13.8cm (3 3/4″ x 5″)

Some sparkly sequins finish off this fun birthday card.

2022 Crafty Collaborations July – December Mini Catalogue Blog Hop

Welcome to the Crafty Collaborations Blog Hop to welcome in our New Mini Catalogue. I’m from Melbourne, Australia and I’m so glad that you have visited me today. I’ve done some mixing and matching for my creation today using products from our Mini and Annual Catalogue (which is just a couple of months in).

I’ve used the Splendid Day Designer Series Papers and Splendid Stems Dies with the fun bird from the Sweet Songbirds bundle.

I just love blending – aren’t out BlendingBrushes THE BEST? So …. I blended Pool Party and Granny Apple Green ink onto Basic White Cardstock and die cut it using the leaf dies. I used some inlays from the smaller leaf to embellish around the bird.

Crafty Collaborations, 2022 Mini Catalogue Blog Hop, July 2022, Splendid Day Suite, Heat embossing, Sweet Songbirds bundle, Ink Blending, Stampin' Up!, Wedding, baby, greeting card

The nest was heat embossed in Copper and die cut with the semi-circle die. The elegance of the specialty Designer Series Paper makes this a cute baby card or a wedding card.

Sweet Songbirds Baby Girl Card #tgifc374

Today’s card uses the Sweet Songbirds stamp set and I’ve used it to create a baby card. The Sweet Songbirds bundle is suitable for so many occasions. With many sentiments including generic sentiments it can be adapted to any special event.

I have been inspired by the Tone-on-Tone challenge at TGIF Challenges for this card and I chose pink with touches of Rose Gold.

For the base piece of Blushing Bride Cardstock I used the Faux Suede technique which added lots of texture to this card.

Flowers die cut from the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper provided the floral arrangement along with die cut Metallic Rose gold leaves.

The little strip of Rose gold paper below the sentiment is the Splendid Day Specialty Paper from our July-December Mini Catalogue which is released tomorrow. If you would like a copy of the catalogue please get in touch with me.

Thank you for checking out my project. Please leave me a comment as I love hearing from you and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me.

You Make my Heart Happy #gdp331

As soon as I saw the theme for Global Design Project #GDP331 which is Dots & Circles I immediately thought of creating a Bokeh background for my card.

Bokeh is a fun technique which mimics the look of the bokeh effect in photography. See below for instructions how to create this look. With my chosen colours, the Catching Butterflies stamp set just seemed to fit. You can get this stamp set free with a $90 order during Sale-A-Bration.

Some die cut circles were layered for this cute image. I added some Wink of Stella for the girl’s dress to give it some shimmer and used our brand new Skin Tone Stampin’ Blends to colour her skin and hair. Some Brushed Brass Butterflies were added to complete this cute card.

BOKEH TECHNIQUE

  • Using a blending brush, add your chosen colours onto Basic White Cardstock
  • Take a piece of Window Sheet (acetate) which is large enough to cover the card front to create a template. Die cut lots of circles in varying sizes from this piece. (I used a few retired punches as well to create the smaller circles)
  • With a Blending Brush, add Craft ink through the circles. Move the template around so that the circles overlap, with more smaller ones added on top.
    Use a heat tool to dry, if necessary, between layers.
  • This creates the fun look and you can wash and use your template again for another project.

SALE-A-BRATION Free products with every $90 order

Ink. Stamp. Share Blog Hop – Whale of a Time

Hi friend,

Welcome to the Ink, Stamp, Share Blog Hop for September. We’ve got a Colour Combination challenge from which we had to use at least 3 of the following 5 colours.

As soon as I saw this colour combination, I knew it would make a perfect ‘under the sea’ image. I used the beautiful Seabed Embossing Folder to create a beautiful background for my card.

I sponged Melon Mambo, Gorgeous Grape and Pretty Peacock over the embossing which created this pretty shaded background.

The waves were cut out from a sheet of DSP and and I added a turtle coloured with Stampin’ Blends on top to complete the card.

I give my team fortnightly Creative Challenges and I gave them a photo inspiration which I just had to share with you. This was picked prior to me sitting down to working on this blog hop. Can you see how similar these colours are to our blog hop colour challenge? I think I’ve just created my card for our team challenge!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. You are visiting Rochelle Laird-Smith in Melbourne, Australia. I hope you have been inspired by my project and maybe you’ll give this colour combination a try. Click on the ‘Next’ button to go to Alison Carter’s blog and make sure you follow the hop through to be inspired by lots of beautiful projects.
