Ink Smooshing Thank You Card

I had some fun with the ink smooshing technique to create this Thank You card along with the Thanks a Bunch stamp set which is a Sale-A-Bration offering. You can earn this stamp set when you spend $90 during Sale-A-Bration.

There are various ways to do the Ink Smooshing technique. I used a Silicone Craft Mat to lay down some ink, spritzed it and then added my cardstock to it. I love the different backgrounds this creates.

My project has been inspired by the sketch from Global Design Project GDP378.

These carrots in different colours look lovely on the Rich Razzleberry card base. A few scattered Champagne Rhinestones and bow from Linen Thread finish off this card.

Sale-A-Bration and Mini Catalogue products are only available while supplies last so if you have favourites then you need to get them while you can.

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.

Beautifully Happy Thank You Card

I’ve got another sweet card suing the Beautifully Happy stamp set today. This stamp set is a free earn during Sale-A-Bration with a $180 order. I actually received this from Stampin’ Up! during our On Stage event in November amongst some other gifts. This is one of the lovely perks we get when we attend our demonstrator events. So, for me, it was a double freebie! I’m having lots of fun creating with it.

For this card, I’ve paired the flowers with another Sale-A-Bration freebie which is the Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper. This pack of paper is a bumper pack with 48 sheets of 12″ x 12″ sheets. 4 each of 12 double sided designs. The colour palette is just gorgeous.

A simple layout with some added texture using the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder and this card is a quick make. Two-step stamping gives beautiful results with minimal effort.

You can order the products I’ve used to make this card by clicking on any of the images below or you can contact me to place an order. Don’t forget to make sure your order reaches $90 so you can get a free product.

Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to seeing you back for more creative inspiration.

Apple Blossom Thank You Card

My customer Thank You cards are in the mail for November using the Apple Harvest stamp set and coordinating dies. If you placed an order with me last month, this card is on it’s way to you.

Of course I did use Granny Apple Green to colour the apple! The Apple Blossom Dies are on our Clearance Rack for just $24.40 (originally $61). They have so many dies to enhance the Apple Harvest stamp set. Available while supplies last, this is a great coordinating product for this stamp set. Unfortunately the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper has sold out. You could substitute this with a range of our papers and I can help you with an alternative which would suit this project.

All those who placed an order with me also receive a goodie bag of samples products. I have fun putting these products together which include Cardstock, Designer Series Paper, Die cuts, labels, embellishments, ribbon and more.

Sketchtember Challenge – Day 30 Background Technique with Masks

Can you believe it? We are at Day 30 of my Sketchtember Challenge celebrating my birthday month. I don’t think I can believe it! What a fun challenge that I got to share with you.

During the entire month of September you’ve also had the opportunity to be in the running to go in the draw to win a hamper valued at $200. Every $50 order you placed with me and every class you purchases has given you an entry in the draw. Place an order of $50 today and be in the running to win a whole lot of Stampin’ Up! products.

For this last sketch I’ve chosen the Apple Harvest Bundle. Today, is the LAST DAY you can get this bundle. The dies will not be available for purchase after the 30th of September. The Apple Blossoms dies have so many beautiful add on elements that you will want to accessorise your Apple Harvest stamp set images with.

As part of the Perfect Partners promotion there are 6 die sets that will not be available after today.

To create the checked background I first blended Parakeet Party ink through the mask with the larger squares. Then I added the mask with the smaller squares on top of the other mask and applied Bermuda Bay ink to create the pattern.

The frame was coloured with Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends and the apple image with a variety of colours.

  • Apple outer – Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Calypso Coral, So Saffron, Color Lifter
  • Apple inner – So Saffron, Pale Papaya, Medium Light, Ivoty
  • Leaves – Soft Sea Foam, Granny Apple Green
  • Stem – SU500 Medium, Ivory
  • Flowers – Pale Papaya

Order this bundle by shopping online or by contacting me via the details below. While the stamp set will be available to purchase the dies will be discontinued after today.

I hope you have enjoyed this month of sketches and please continue to create and share with #sketchtemberchallenge . Thank you for checking out my posts and for taking the time to comment and tell me that you love the inspiration. I share what I love in the hope that in inspires you to be creative so I love hearing feedback from you.

Looking forward to sharing World Cardmaking Day with you tomorrow.

Sketchtember Challenge – Day 14 Joseph’s Coat Technique

The Joseph’s Coat Technique is a fun background to create using Clear embossing powder and inks. I’ve created a vibrant background with it for Day 14 of my Sketchtember Challenge.

To create the background it’s ideal to have solid images such as the one from the Lovely & Lasting stamp set. First I blended Granny Apple Green, Shaded Spruce and Tahitian Tide over Basic White Cardstock. Then I stamped the large floral stamp randomly over the entire background in Versamark and heat embossed in Clear Embossing Powder.

With Night of Navy ink I blended colour over the entire embossed piece of Cardstock. The embossing will resist the colour and like magic, the colour which was blended underneath will show through. This is such a wow look and can be created very easily.

I’ll be demonstrating this technique on my Creative Escape FB Live tonight at 7:30pm. I hope you can join me for some crrafting.
