New at su Blog Hop – In the Country

Hello and welcome to our New at SU Blog Hop for January. Our theme this month is Sale-A-Bration and a matching envelope. If you are coming over from Loni’s blog, I’m sure you would have been treated to something amazing. How cute are those carrots? Make sure you check out all the inspiration from our team using our fabulous SAB products.

I’ve used the beautiful In the Country stamp set which you can earn free with a $90 order during Sale-A-Bration. There are a range of products you can take your pick from and every $90 you spend will earn you a free product. This stamp set appealed to me right from the start.

I used the Layering Vellum Paper to create a vintage look for my cards with some ink blending.The stamped images were coloured with Watercolour Pencils which I just love working with.

I used the Biggest Wish stamp set to create my layered sentiments. Fussy cutting around a large sentiment and layering it makes it really stand out against these scenic images.

For my matching envelope I embellished them in 2 different ways. For the first card I embossed the flap with the Timber Embossing Folder to coordinate with my card. However, the embossing folder didn’t reach right to the top so I used a scrap piece of Mossy Meadow Cardstock to fix that (meant to be!).

For the second card I stamped the image and simply blended Cajun Craze ink lightly over it.

I created a similar card on my weekly Creative Escape FB Live which I hope you enjoy. Please subscribe to my channel to be notified when I go Live.

Thank you for stopping my blog and please leave me a comment as you follow through to visit my friend Angie Mckenzie at Nature’s INKspirations where you are sure to be inspired by her beautiful project.

In the Country for fms568

Do you ever wonder what to do with a stamp set like In the Country from our Sale-A-Bration catalogue? Large images of scenes which you could colour in but sometimes you may not have the time to spend colouring it all in.

A sketch such as this one from Freshly Made Sketches is a great way to highlight sections of a scene and lends itself to creating quick cards.

I stamped the scene twice in Cajun Craze and then die cut various sections using a circle die to form the sketch.

The colour palette was minimal making it a great masculine card.

I chose to add a vertical sentiment along with the Metallic Dots to draw the eye down over the 3 scenes.

You can choose the In the Country stamp set FREE when you spend $90 on an order during the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration promotion.

You’re Flippin’ Awesome for #fms547

I’ve got a simple Father’s Day card inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. I used the die cut images from the He’s the Man Designer Series Paper which resulted in a no-stamping card. If you want to make some quick masculine cards then this will be your go-to DSP. Layer up some paper and die cut images and sentiments and you have a card ready to go.

This card with a bbq theme would be perfect for Father’s Day for Dads who love to cook a snag on the barbie.

The panels of DSP were cut to 3cm x 7.5cm and matte onto Cajun Craze Cardstock 10cm x 8cm.

The background diamond elements from the All That Dies were die cut from Crumb Cake Cardstock and sponged with some Cajun Craze ink. Then I heat embossed them with a couple of layers of Clear Embossing Powder which gave it a rusted look. I pulled the thread from the Woven ribbon to create the texture at the back of the die cut circle.

Follow me on Facebook as I feature the He’s the Man suite this week for lots of inspiration.

Father’s Day Card for the Camping Dad

Blessed Sunday to you! Continuing with my ‘Dads’ theme which I’ve been focusing on my Facebook Page this week, I’ve got an outdoor themed card for the Dad who loves camping. The Campology stamp set is a favourite of mine for masculine cards.

I’m playing along with Caseing the Catty Sunday Challenge where we are casing a Christmas Tree project from the July – December 2022 Mini Catalogue, the 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue or the Sale-a-bration Catalogue. I’m CASEing this card from Page 14 of the Jul-Dec Mini Catalogue which uses the Regal Reindeer Bundle.

I flipped the card horizontal and used the Tailor Made Tags Dies to blend ink to resemble the project I was CASEing. Blending Parakeet Party and Evening Evergreen with a Blending Brush, I then stamped the trees in Evening Evergreen. I added some embossing pasge to resemble the snow which was in the original card. The Embossing paste picked up the green which was blended under and you can see the stamped trees under the light layer of embossing which adds to the rustic feel of this card.

The kettle and cup images were stamped in Soft Suede and coloured with Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the handles twice and fussy cut to attach behind the main image. A strip of the Sale-A-Bration Silver & Gold Foil DSP was added behind the tag in line with the sketch I was CASEing.

At this stage I really wanted to add a bit ‘extra’ and couldn’t go past those leaves from the Stylish Sketches stamp set. This has got to be my favourite Sale-A-Bration product as I just love the images in it. You can get this set FREE with a $90 order.

Don’t miss out on qualifying for a Sale-A-Bration products. When your order reaches $90 you will get to select from a range of goodies. See our entire range here. Would you like to make this card for your Dad? Shop the range of products in my Online Store or contact me with any enquiries.

Stylish Sketches for ctc376

I’m joining in the Caseing the Catty Sunday Challenge with this card. We could CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) anything from the Mini Catalogue. For my CASE, I chose the card with the Crumb Cake card base on the top right of Page 46 from the Perched in a Tree bundle and copied the layour.

I’ve substituted the bird for a wolf from the Stylish Sketches stamp set. Going for a more wintry look with this card, I created a stencil from Cardstock and blended Granny Apple Green leaves onto Soft Sea Foam Cardstock. Then I added some snow with a water painter and Craft Ink refill.

The leaves were die cut from the Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper and the foil adds a nice contrast against the rustic look of the ribbon and the card.

This was layered onto a Soft Sea Foam card base. The card base is part of a Sale-A-Bration freebie as is the Stylish Sketches stamp set. Each of these products can be earned with a $90 order.
