Monochromatic Azure Afternoon – Watercolor World

Happy Saturday! Welcome to another monochromatic Insta Hop with the Crafty Collaborations team. Today our feature colour is Azure Afternoon. I’ve taken to the skies with my card, inking up my new Watercolor World stamp set for a fun product combination.

I started off by inking the Watercolor World stamp with Smoky Slate and Azure Afternoon, using Sponge Daubers. Then I spritzed the stamped with water to create a more watercoloured effect, before stamping the image.

I die cut the circles and it so happened that I had cut my circles a little bit off centre. This became a design element on my card. I laid out all the circles for a fun pattern, mixing it with some Designer Series Paper strips. A small strip of White Cardstock was stamped with the clouds in Azure Afternoon to bring in another textured look.

The background was brayered with Smoky Slate by rolling the brayer in both directions to create a criss-cross pattern. To ‘tie’ it all in, I wove Silver ribbon under and through the circles which gave more detail and interest while bringing together all the patterns and textures.

I felt that it needed a focal image to draw the eye in, so I added the plane which was coloured in with a Blender Pen. Some Industrial Trinkets put a nice finishing touch to this card.

Any of these products are available in my Online Store or by getting in touch with me.

New at SU Blog Hop – CASE a Team Member with Adventurous Sky

Hello and welcome to the New at SU blog hop for April. Today we have a very exciting and interesting challenge. Each of us will be CASEing another one of our New at SU team members. I find these particular chllaneges extra fun and love being inspired by my friends.

New at SU Header 2023-2024

For my project I have used the new Adventurous Sky bundle and it’s coordinating Take to the Sky suite to create a masculine themed card.

I am CASEing Heather Cooper from Playing with Papercrafting and chose one of her past New at SU projects. This one goes all the way back to April 2022. Click on the image below to view the details of Heather’s project.

I was inspired by the frame that Heather had created and replicated that using the Deckled Rectangles dies. The frame was die cut 4 times (I cut 2 at once to save time) and then I embossed one frame with the new So Swirlly Embossing Folder. On the back of the frame I added one of the smaller DSP panels which is on the sheet which has the tags.

I loosely followed the layout of Heather’s card, adding my own variation to it. The plane was ccoloured with Stampin’ Blends and added to 2 smaller strips of DSP which were offset against each other. I just love the colours of the Designer Series Paper and drew on that for my card.

Thank you for stopping by today. Please leave me a comment as you go through to view Heather Cooper’s creation.

If you live in Australia and currently don’t have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I would value the opportunity to help you with your crafting needs. I can be contacted on Ph: 0404 255 001 or email rochelle@stampingflair.com

Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop – Let’s go Fishing

It’s time for another Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop with the Crafty Collaborations team. I’m using the Let’s go Fishing Designer Series Paper which has some lovely generic neutral designs in addition to it’s fishing themed images.

For the top of my design I angled a small strip of DSP. This was balanced with a strip of the same DSP at the bottom and the largest DSP panel which were both placed at the same angle.

I wanted to create space for smaller photos as well as a feature larger photo. Using the Stylish Shapes dies square die I created my polaroid look photo frames. At the back of it I added some Gray Granite mattes for the photos. Some Black and White photos would look great in these 3 smaller frames with a colour photo for the larger frame.

I’ve also used the Beauty of the Deep bundle for some stamped and die cut images adding some fussy cut fish from the DSP to swim around my page.

The large frame was placed straight to ground all the different angles that were on the page, bringing it together with another strip of DSP at the bottom.

This Designer Series Paper coordinates with the Let’s go Fishing bundle which will be carrying over into the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. The paper is currently on our Last Chance sale and reduced to $10.87 (from $21.75), Grab yourself a pack (or two) of this while supplies last.

Monochromatic Starry Sky – Rock & Roll

Happy Saturday friends, It’s lovely to be able to share with you my first card using the Rock Star bundle. I’m a fan of all music stamp sets so this particular suite was going to end up with me at some stage. I just got it in last week and I love all the fun options that are available with the stamps, dies, embellishments and the black and white Designer Series Paper. It’s a great guy set and those black and white papers are so versatile.

I followed the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #fms626 . I started by inking up my guitar in Tuxedo Black. Then I wiped back the neck end of the guitar with a paper towel and coloured the stamp with the Starry Sky Stampin’ Write Marker. I added any details that may have come off with the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker. Then I stamped and die cut the image. On top of this I stamped a texture image from the Of Art & Texture stamp set. This is part of our Online Exclusives range. I really love how this stamp added just that little bit of colour to the image.

Freshly Made Sketches FMS626, Card sketch, card layout

For the background some Shimmery White Embossing Paste was coloured with Starry Sky ink refill before application. The shimmer is so much fun and adds to the rock star look of this card. I applied it fairly thick as I wanted a more uneven, textured look.

I die cut a circle using the Stylish Shapes dies and added some blending through a mask. This was cut in half to form the sketch. The guitar was added on top with a pick die cut from Silver Foil. To complete the card I added a heat embossed sentiment with a little star from the embellishments in the Rock & Roll suite.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely weekend and a long weekend if you are in Melbourne!

New at SU Blog Hop – Step-it-up with the Beach Day Bundle

Hello and welcome to a very fun New at SU Blog Hop. This month we are stepping it up with products from our January – April Mini Catalogue. We are creating a simple stamping project and then using the same products to step it up for an avid crafter.

New at SU Header 2023-2024

I’ve chosen the Beach Day bundle which is very much in season here in Australia and created 3 versions of a card which is suitable for whatever level of crafting you are at right now – or dependent or the time you have to create!

CASUAL

The Delightful Floral Designer Series Paper provides a ready made shaded background for this card. Repeated stamping and a bit of ink blending make this a quick and easy card to make. Colouring was minimal with the surfboard coloured in just Calypso Coral and fussy cut to create a feature on the card.

Tips to keep it simple

  • Use your Designer Series Paper for maximum effect
  • Use just a few colours

AVID

I stepped this card up by colouring the other 2 surfboardsa and adding the die cut element of the wave. The sentiment was stamped on a separate piece of cardstock which coordinated with the Azure Afternoon card base and the layout was slightly changed to accommodate the wave border.

ARTFULLY AVID

A bit like the ‘burger with the lot’, the Artfully Avid card tends to add more technique into the mix. I’ve incorporated a bit more die cutting and lots more layers and detail.

I added more ink blending which really makes those surf boards look like they are on an Aussie beach. A cute die cut sandcastle incorporates the elements from my previous cards to give continuity to the step-it-up theme.

I hope you have enjoyed what I’ve shared today and see the possibilities of what you can create with your products. Please make sure to visit all our other team members to see how they step-it-up with their chosen products.

SailBoat Birthday – Colour Palette #28

Colour Palette #28 was such a calming combo to work and inspired by the photo, I stepped away from Christmas projects to use the Sailboat Builder punch. It’s been a little while since I’ve created with it and I really enjoyed using this boat as the focal point for this summery card. Being a punch, the sailboat is so quick to create. To make it even easier, I used Designer Series Paper for the sails.

For the background I used our 2023-2025 In-Color Designer Series Paper and added some extra lines using the Light Lemon Lolly Stampin’ Blends. You can get the DSP, Blends and Cardstock currently on sale during our Seasonal Sale which goes from 14th – 16th November.

I splattered some Orchid Oasis on the sentiment panel by flicking the Stampin’ Blend against the cap. Some blending with Orchid Oasis was also added to the embossed panel and to the bottom of the vessel which added a slight shadow as if in the waves. Some Wavy Trim gives that added nautical touch to this card fit for any sailor.
