Kre8tors Blog Hop August 2020 – Anniversary

Hi and welcome to Stamping Flair and the monthly Kre8tors Blog Hop. I’m a little bit sad because it’s the last time we’ll be hopping together for the time being. Thank you to Melissa Tennison who has worked so hard putting this blog hop together each month. I’ve had so much fun being a part of it. 

Kre8tors Blog Hop August Color Challenge

However, we still have all the fun of this month. So make sure you check out all the blogs for lots of inspiration. Our theme is anniversaries. Usually I would create a floral, feminine card but this time I created more with my partner in mind. So my card took on a more masculine feel. 

I started by sponging Granny Apple Green and Misty Moonlight along the bottom of the Whisper White cardstock panel. Then I embossed it with the Tasteful Textile embossing folder. Taking my Versamark ink pad, I roughly ran it down the ends of the cardstock and poured the Gold Embossing Powder over it. I brushed off any excess to achieve a streaky look then heat embossed it. 

The sentiment is the die from the Love You More set and it actually says ‘Love you more than’. I just used the words ‘ Love you’ which I die cut from the Rainbow Glimmer Paper

I hope you have been inspired by my creation. Please leave me a comment as I would love to hear from you. Next on our hop is Annette Elias. Click on the Next button to see her lovely project.

Stamp n’ Hop – Favourite Bundle

Hi,

Welcome to Stamping Flair on this Saturday morning. It’s a weekend like no other here in Melbourne, where we are in lock down but us crafters need not fear boredom. We have supplies and unfinished projects to last a lifetime! I hope you are all keeping well and in good spirits. You are in the right place to get you into creative mode.

Today I’m hopping with my friends from the Stamp ‘N Hop team and we are showcasing our favourite bundle. Now this one was a tough choice as there are so many beautiful bundles available in the Annual Catalogue as well as the Mini Holiday Catalogue.Stamp n' Hop, August 2020, Favourite Bundle

I chose the Forever Fern bundle for it’s versatility to offer quick and simple cards which look really beautiful. This bundle is perfect for the beginner stamper as it offers the capacity to step-up your projects as you become more comfortable with stamping. For the Advanced crafter, the coordinating dies offer you additional leaves and elements to add more pizzazz to your projects. 

Stamp N' Hop, Favourite Bundle, Forever Greenery, Gold Lasercut paper

I added the beautiful Gold Laser cut paper which is part of the Forever Greenery Suite. A poppy from the Painted Poppies stamp set, coloured in Flirty Flamingo, adds a soft contrast to the shades of green on this card. Die cut leaves in Sahara Sand and Soft Sea Foam coordinate with that beautiful Designer Series Paper. 

Join me this afternoon on my Facebook Live where I’ll show you how to create this card and give you some fun tips and techniques. All the products I have used on this card are listed at the bottom of this post.  Thank you for visiting me today. I hope you have enjoyed my project and I would love for you to leave me a comment. 

Follow the hop right through for lots of fun ideas for use with a variety of bundles. Next on our hop is Caroline Peck’s. Click on the Next button to go through to her blog and see her lovely project.

aWow Blog Hop – cas(e) a Team Member

Hi,

Welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne, Australia and our July Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop. We are a team of 24 Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who are representative of the various Stampin’ Up! markets around the world. 

AWOW Blog Hop Header

This is a very exciting hop as we get to CAS(E) -Copy and Selectively Edit or Copy and Share Everything – one of our team members. We have 2 special guests this month – Kylie and Bruno Bertucci and they too will be part of the CASEing. The names were drawn under strict Facebook Live conditions by Angie Mackenzie. I must say, it was very exciting to watch her draw from the 2 piles of names she had. 

I’m so excited to be able to CASE Chris Smith today whose FB account I have been stalking! Chris creates amazing projects so I had much to choose from. I kept saying, oh I must CASE that and I must CASE that. I chose both a stamp set and a layout from one of Chris’ beautiful cards. 

Front Flip Fancy Fold Card with Prized Peony bundle

Here is Chris’ project which I have CASEd. I love the monochromatic look of this card and the beautiful soft tones.  As I was writing this post, I realized I had unwittingly used the same ribbon Chris had on her card as well. You know what they say- great minds!

I created a Front Flip fancy fold card and used a very similar layout to the card Chris created. I stamped one of the peony stamps all over the Whisper White cardstock to create a beautiful background. The main peony has been coloured with a combination of Stampin’ Blends to achieve this shaded flower. You can find the measurements to create this card in my original post featuring this fold.

So in this challenge, Tania Tobin got to CASE me. Now to add a little bit of extra fun, I thought I’d CASE one of Tania’s cards and again I went for a beautiful and simple layout which she featured on this poppy card.

I die cut 4 rectangles and embossed them with the Tasteful Textiles embossing folder. The tulle ribbon was sponged with Balmy Blue to coordinate with my card.

I added a die cut sentiment from the Well Said dies to keep the card simple in design. A few sequins add some sparkle to this card. This fun layout is great to try with different patterned papers and colours. 

You are currently with Rochelle Laird-Smith in Australia. I hope you have enjoyed my cards today and I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment. Make sure you follow the hop to see all the fun we have had in CASEing our fellow team members. I know have enjoyed this hop a lot. 

Next on our hop is Cazz Boylan. Click the image below to find out who’s she’s CASEing and the beautiful project she’s created.

Stamp ‘N Hop – Hello 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue

Hello,

Welcome to Stamping Flair and our Stamp n’ Hop blog for June. You may be hopping from Sue Allen’s blog or you may be starting the hop here. I live in Blind Bight which is a small town in Victoria, Australia. I’m having my Online Catalogue Launch today so I have been preparing quite a number of projects with our new products. 

I’ve chosen the Many Layered Blossoms die set for my card. This is a lovey large image and it coordinates with the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set. Read to the end of this post to find out how you can get the Blossoms in Bloom bundle for free.

Stampin' Up! Handmade card with Blossoms

I started off by layering a panel of the vibrant striped Flowers for Every Season DSP on the Magenta Madness cardstock. These stripes remind me of sweet lollies. I am not a sweet tooth but it has a bit of a fairy floss look which adds a happy feel to the card. 

There are 2 die cuts for the larger floral bouquet. The bottom has been die cut in Whisper White. The top in So Saffron and then I added Real Red ink with a sponge dauber for a subtle hint of colour with the So Saffron peeking through. These were then adhered onto So Saffron cardstock which I fussy cut. 

Stampin' Up! Many Layered Blossoms

As the image is such a bold image, I kept the sentiment simple in black with a small lace border die cut from the Ornate Borders dies. This is my first card with this set and I hope to try a variety of styles and combinations as I think it offers so many possibilities.  I hope you have been inspired to get creative with this bundle.

aWow Blog Hop – Inspiration from the New Annual Catalogue

Hi,

Welcome to my blog, Stamping Flair. I am a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Victoria, Australia. The Around the World on Wednesday (or aWOW) Blog Hop is made up of demonstrators representative of all the Stampin’ Up! markets around the world. This month our guest is the talented Cindy Schuster. So I hope you enjoy your journey with us this Wednesday. 

AWOW Blog Hop Header

This is such an exciting time in the Stampin’ Up! family where we get to play with all our new products from the brand new Annual catalogue. Have you got a favourite product or maybe it’s several favourites? I have several suites and stamp sets that I love. However, I did have to make a choice and it happened to be one of the products in the suite that steered me towards the decision I made. 

The Forever Greenery Suite. Aaaah, there’s green and then there’s Forever Greenery! Isn’t it beautiful? It’s got shades of green and blue. So what do you think might have just tipped me in it’s direction? Those Gold Laser Cut papers- yes, they are just beautiful. Apart from that, I am loving the smaller size. At 9¾” x 10″ it’s much easier to handle than the previous laser cut papers which were at 12″x12″. 

I have incorporated all the products in this suite on my cards including the beautiful Forever Greenery embossing folders. These will fit in our soon-to-be-released Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I’ve combined the gold laser cut elements with some stamped leaves. The stamp was inked up in Soft Sea Foam and then inked around the edges using a sponge dauber in Pretty Peacock to achieve the dual-colours.  

On the next card I used the debossed side of the embossing folder and added some colour using a sponge dauber. Those Gold Hoops are so cute and add a lovely detail to projects. The back panel has been embossed with the Old World Paper embossing folder. This actually creases the cardstock – just like old paper! I love it. 

This gorgeous wreath is the centrepiece of my third card. I’ve added some die cut elements including some dual-coloured stamped leaves of Old olive and Bermuda Bay, the same way I did on the previous card. 

Thank you for visiting me today and I hope you come back soon. I hope you have been inspired by my cards and I would appreciate you leaving me a comment as I do love hearing from you.  All the products I have used are listed at the bottom of this post. Click on any of the images to be taken direct to my online store.

Ink. Stamp. Share Blog Hop – New Catalogue Sneak Peek

Hello,

How exciting to share this time with you as I get to show you a sneaky peek at some products from the new Stampin’ Up! catalogue which becomes available to customers on the 3rd of June. Welcome to my blog and I really hope you enjoy the project I have for you today. 

Selecting products to showcase is always a bit hard when it comes to a new catalogue. Only because I want to showcase everything but I made my choice today purely on the beautiful texture in the In Good Taste suite. The Designer Series Paper has background images of wood texture, brick, tiles and more. It’s just so beautiful and lovely to work with. 

I started off by stamping the background tiles in Rococo Rose and the stems in Gray Granite, Then I added Versamark through a mask to the top section of my card. This was heat embossed in Clear Embossing Powder. Using sponge daubers, I added colour over the embossing in Rococo Rose and Gray Granite. 

Tasteful Touches Bundle by Stampin' Up! full of textured effects

I coloured the flower with a combination of Rococo Rose, Flirty Flamingo and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends. When you combine Stampin’ Blend colours it adds even greater depth to the image. The combination of Gray Granite, Rococo Rose and all the texture really worked so well. Colour coordination is easy – just look at the paper and be inspired.

Tasteful Touches flower coloured with Stampin' Blends

The In Good Taste Elements add that natural wood look to create even more texture on this card. 

Stampin' Up! In Good Taste suite

You are currently visiting Rochelle Laird-Smith in Australia. I hope your interest has been piqued and the In Good Taste suite is already on your Wish List! Please leave me a comment if you have enjoyed this card.

There is lots more inspiration on this blog hop so make sure you go visit everyone and give them some love too. Next on our hop is Michelle Bryant. Click on the Next button to follow onto her blog.
