Kylie International Blog Highlights October – Dazzling Butterfly

Hi Stampers,

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. We are continuing with the theme of Encouragement on Kylie’s International Blog Highlight for October.

Kylie's International Blog HIghlight

This card,with it’s glittery butterfly is sure to brighten someone’s day and bring a smile to their face. It’s #worldcardsendingweek this week and Stampin’ Up! are gearing up for a grand total of 50,000 cards to be sent worldwide. An encouragement is perfect at any time and I’ve got someone in mind for this card.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Gala card with Dazzling Diamonds

I started off with a Smoky Slate card base and stamped the butterflies in Smoky Slate. Then I added a panel of Blushing Bride embossed with the Subtle embossing folder. I stamped a panel of Whisper White cardstock with a combination of images from the Beauty Abounds stamp set to create a pretty background. I love that we can create our own Designer Series Paper with stamps to colour coordinate with our projects.

The Delightful Tag Topper punch was used to create the tag which has been embossed with the Country Floral embossing folder. The texture is so detailed on this folder and it coordinates with the soft look of this card.

The sentiment is perfect to let someone know they have been thought. I’ve layered it with a felt border from the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit. The striped border is a stamp from the Tiny Keepsakes Cling Stamp set which is in the Holiday Catalogue. I stamped this in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and cut a strip to to flag and use as a banner. 

I stamped the butterfly in Smoky Slate on Blushing Bride. Then I added liquid glue and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds to create my sparkly butterfly.

Friendship Card #gdp209 Colour Challenge

Hi friends,

I’ve got a sweet card for you today inspired by the fun colours set out in the Global Design Project challenge this week. These are such bright and cheerful colours and I thought it would be fun to create a friendship card. 

#gdp209 Color Challenge, Colour Challenge

I chose the Little Elephant stamp set and although tempted to use the cute little elephants, I decided to use some other fun images which are included in this set. 

Friendship card using Little Elephant stamp set by Stampin' Up!

The border of hearts was made using a small stamp in the set. Then I used the Stamparatus to create the flower border. These were coloured with Blueberry Bushel and Call me Clover Stampin’ Write Markers with the ‘direct to stamp’ colouring technique. To achieve this look, I coloured the stamp with the markers then ‘huffed’ (breathed) on it to activate the moisture and stamped. I did this each time I coloured the stamp. The advantage of the Stamparatus is the ability to align a border as I have done and also to re-stamp images which may not stamp first time.

The sentiment was heat embossed in White on Call me Clover cardstock.

It’s #worldcardsendingweek this week. I plan on sending this card to a friend (shhh – I can’t say who in case she sees this!). So get involved in this fun week and send out one (or a few) of your handmade cards to someone. They will love it and you will be a blessing to them.

Kylie’s Top Ten International Highlights Winners Blog Hop September 2019

Kylie's Top Ten Winners Blop Hop

Hi Friends,

Thanks for stopping by my blog – Stamping Flair. A few weeks ago I created this card for Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights. I was so thrilled to find out that I was picked in the top ten. Thank you so much for voting. You can find out all the details for this card HERE. 

Encouragement card, Stampin' Up!

Today the top ten winners are participating in a blog hop and I am so excited to take part alongside these talented demonstrators. Thank you to Kylie Bertucci for hosting this event. Our theme for this hop is Encouragement. Nature's Beauty stamp set by Stampin' Up!, Make a difference to Mental Health

It appears that I have stuck to the same kind of imagery – cute little animals. I didn’t even think about it until I started comparing the cards. For today’s cards, I have used the bunny from the beautiful, Nature’s Beauty stamp set which is on Page 63 of the Holiday Catalogue. I stamped the image in Soft Suede on Shimmery White cardstock and then watercoloured it using Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green, Garden Green, Crushed Curry and Early Espresso Watercolour pencils. 

 Watercoloured handmade encouragement card with Come to Gather Designer Series Paper

The Come to Gather Designer Series Paper is featured on both my cards. This DSP has images of pumpkins and autumn leaves and is part of the Come to Gather suite. As you can see, the designs work well on any type of project.

The DSP has a bit of a country feel to it and I thought the addition of a strip of Crumb Cake cardstock embossed with the Corrugated embossing folder added a rustic feel to coordinate with the wood DSP. An encouraging sentiment from Harvest Hellos has been added together with the ribbon under the Shimmery White cardstock panel.

Kylie’s International Blog Highlight September – Daisy Encouragement

Kylie's International Blog HIghlightI’ve made an encouragement card today as part of Kylie Bertucci’s September International Blog Highlight. I’ve chosen neutral shades and the calming tones of Balmy Blue as my colour combination.

I stamped the bird in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, die cut it with the circle and coloured with Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. Then I created a mask by stamping the bird again on some scrap paper. I dabbed a bit of liquid glue on the back and left it to become tacky. Then I placed this over the the bird to use as a mask and stamped the leaves in Old Olive over the circle.

Using 2 circle dies (1 larger and 1 smaller than the Whisper White circle), I die cut a frame from Crumb Cake cardstock. This was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the embossed Balmy Blue panel.

Framed Bird coloured with Stampin' Blends

I stamped 3 daisies in Pretty Peacock ink, punched them out and sponged around to soften the edges. Several leaves were cut from the vellum sheet in the Magnolia Lane Memories and More cardpack and arranged under the flower. The ribbon has been secured with glue dots.

Krea8tors August 2019 Blog Hop – Color Challenge Farms

Kre8tors Blog Hop August Color Challenge

Hi Friends,

So glad that you have stopped by today. I’m excited to be participating for the first time in the Kre8tors Blog Hop.  This month’s theme is The Hood River Fruit Loop. It’s a collection of farms in the Hood River Valley in Oregon, USA that offer fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers, and other items straight off the farm. 

We had to select 3 of the 5 featured colours beneath this beautiful photo. I have chosen Early Espresso, Petal Pink and Cherry Cobbler. Kre8tors Blog Hop August 2019 Color Challenge Stampin' Up!

The Whisper White layer has been stamped in Early Espresso with the script from the Very Versailles stamp set. Then I added the flourish from Leave a Little Sparkle in Cherry Cobbler. 3 leaves were stamped on top with Early Espresso. To complete the background, I used the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write marker and created the splatter effect by flicking the brush side against the cap of the marker. This creates the subtle splatter look.

Next I drew 2 lines in pencil to indicate where I was going to cut through. The vertical line was 2.5 cm from left edge at top and 4.5 cm from left edge at bottom. The horizontal line was 11.5 cm from top on left side and 7.5 cm from top on right side.

I trimmed about 1/2 cm on either side of the pencil mark which forms the gap so the Early Espresso can show through. 

I used the new Daisy Lane bundle and stamped and punched 3 daises, layering and curling the petals with a bone folder to create the flower.
