New at SU Blog Hop – 2024-2026 In-Colors with Citrus Blooms

Welcome to the New at SU blog for May. This month our projects will feature the 2024-2026 In-Colors. These 5 colours of Pretty in Pink, Peach Pie, Shy Shamrock, Summer Splash and Petunia Pop are a lovely addition to our colour range.

For my card I’m using the Citrus Blooms bundle and featuring Peach Pie and Shy Shamrock from the new In-Colors. I stamped the image in Stazon Black ink on Fluid 100 Cardstock. Using a Water Painter, I coloured the image in.

For the oranges I used Peach Pie and Pumpkin Pie and the leaves were coloured with Soft Sea Foam and Shy Shamrock. I also added some shading with Early Espresso. Around the image I created a light wash with Lemon Lolly. On the flowers I also added some extra details using the Crushed Curry Watercolour Pencil.

Once I die cut the main image, I used the outer area which I had watercoloured with Lemon Lolly to die cut the smaller flowers.

On the White matte, I stamped the sentiment ‘dear friend’ several times in Soft Sea Foam ink. Then I heat embossed the leaves from the Spotlight on Nature stamp set in Basic White. Over this I blended Shy Shamrock ink for an Emboss Resist effect bringing out those leaves.

A label die cut from the Countryside Corners dies was blended with Soft Sea Foam ink. I cut this label and added a small portion of it under the white label. I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso ink on the remainder of the ink-blended label which created a cohesive look tying in the elements under the oranges.

Thank you for taking the time to visit and check out my project. Please make sure you follow our hop for lots of great ideas for putting those new colours to use.

AWOW Blog Hop – Sketch with Latte Love Bundle

Awow Blog Hop, Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop Header

Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday blog hop where we have a sketch challenge for May. This is my favourite type of challenge and I’ve given the Latte Love bundle a bit of a twist with some new products.

If you are new to our blog hop, we are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from different parts of the world and on the 2nd Wednesday of each month we share inspiration with you using our beautiful products centred around a particular theme.

When I selected the Latte Love bundle as the product I wanted to use with this sketch, I didn’t anticipate going in the direction which my project took me. As I started creating, I wanted to create a different look with this mug to those I had previously made. I decided to replicate a beautiful Bone China style mug with watercoloured flowers – similar to something you would use at high tea.

To achieve this I stamped the mug in Crumb Cake ink, stamped off, on Fluid 100 Cardstock. Then I took the floral corner stamp from the Country Flowers stamp set, masked off a section, and stamped the floral image onto the mug with Crumb Cake ink stamped off. Using a Blender Pen, I worked on the watercolouring of the flowers, mug and coffee.

The outline of the stamped image was quite faint and I did improvise a little bit with the flowers and leaves where I couldn’t see the image too well. This didn’t matter as it lent to the watercoloured look I was aiming for.

The handle was stamped separately in Versamark and heat embossed in Gold. Once watercoloured, I attached this to the cup. For the saucer, I used the Round We Go dies, watercolouring the base and adding a Gold embossed centre for a matching set with my cup.

Some leaves from the Citrus Blooms dies fill in around the handle and the sentiment. A simple Gold bow and Pretty in Pink Resin Dots completed my vision for this card.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my part of the world in Melbourne today and I hope you have been inspired by my card. I would love for you to leave me a comment as you hop through to see Cheryll Miller‘s beautiful project.

Caseing the Catty CTC468 – New Annual Catalogue

Hi friends, Welcome to the Caseing the Catty Sunday Challenge Blog Hop and this is my first week participating as a crew member. I’m thrilled to have been asked to join the Design Team and am thanksful for this opportunity. I’m looking forward to sharing creative inspiration with you as part of the team.

This week’s challenge is to CASE the Annual Catalogue. With so much inspiration throughout the catalogue it’s a tough choice to pick just one!

After much thought and indecision I settled on this gift box from Page 46 which uses the Thoughtful Journey Suite. My inspiration was the gift tag and the tone-on-tone background.

Tag

I started by blending Soft Sea Foam, Lemon Lime Twist, Shy Shamrock, Summer Splash and Wild Wheat on Basic White Cardstock. Then I added some stripes from the Of Art & Texture stamp set which is part of our Online Exclusives range.

I heat embossed some small flowers in White from the Country Birdhouse stamp set around the Cardstock. Using the Radiating Stitches Dies, I cut a rectangle, then repositioned the die to cut out the tag shape.

Caseing the Catty, CTC468, Case the Annual Stampin' Up!, Catalogue, Ephemera, Layere Florals 3D Embossing Folder, diy card, Heat embossed background, Altering your dies using Radiating Stitches Dies

Some elements from the new Ephemera Packs were added to the card, including the sentiment. These packs provide a variety of ready-to-go images and sentiments.

To depict the tone-on-tone background of the gift packaging, I embossed a piece of Basic Beige Cardsstock with the Layered Florals Embossing Folder. I added a narrow matte layer of White behind the embossed layer to tie in with the White Embossing which also added a subtle contrast. This was added to a Basic Beige Cardstock. New to our colour range, this is a must-have in your stash. It’s a beautiful neutral which I love.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you are inspired to CASE a project from the catalogue and share it over the on the Challenge FB page. Next on our hop is Lauren Meiklejohn. Please follow our hop through for more inspiration.

Crafty Challenge Blog Hop – By the Bay Sympathy Card

Hello and welcome to the Crafty Collaborations Crafty Challenge Blog Hop. Today’s challenge is a dice throw and we had to use each of the sides facing up.

I combined this with a Colour Palette challenge I have weekly on my FB page. This colour palette had Tahitian Tide which is an In-Color for just one more day. It retires at the end of today. I felt all the elements would blend well to create a beautiful sympathy card.

The bird was coloured in Watercolour Pencils and added to a tag die cut from the Tailor Made Tags. These dies are retiring and are one of my must-have dies. They are so handy to have whether you create tags or use it as part of another project. .

I used a blender pen to colour in the bottom of the die cut shells from the Seaside Bay dies with Tahitian Tide ink. As for the other colour that came through on the shell – I think there may have been some residue of another ink on my Blender Pen. It worked out well and I love the shading. To colour in the top part of the shell, I inked up the large crab with Tahitian Tide ink and stamped the body over the shell. This gave the shell a mottled appearance.

Some Tahitian Tide In-Color Pearls were added to embellish my card. I like the soft colours of this card with the white space around which brings a sense of calm and works well for a sympathy card.

I hope you have been inspired by this card and I encourage you to create something with this dice throw. Please follow our hop through for more inspiration.

Waves of Inspiration for #GDP442

Inspiration can come to us from anywhere and the inspiration for this card began with a scrap piece of stamping where I was just trying out some colours. This scrap looked so good that I wanted to recreate it for a card and the background of this project came to be.

I used the smooshed image from the Perched in a Tree stamp set and inked it up with Fresh Freesia ink. Then I spritzed the stamp with water before stamping. This created a watercoloured look. I repeated this a few times. As I was using Basic White Carstock I was careful not to oversaturate the image, yet keeping the fluidity of it.

I’ve followed the sketch at Global Design Project #gdp422.

The pelican was stamped in Early Espresso ink and I added a hint of shading with Crushed Curry and Gorgeous Grape Watercolour Pencils. The lovely large leaf in the centre is from the new Thoughtful Wishes dies. It was perfect for sitting across the card so I could add the pelican on top of it.

Some additional pieces of DSP and a heat embossed sentiment complete this card. The Waves of Inspiration stamp and coordinating dies and the Perched in a Tree stamp set are all retiring on the 30th of April. Get your favourite products before they leave.

Monochromatic Granny Apple Green – Planted Paradise

Welcome to the weekend and to this week’s Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Insta Hop theme with Granny Apple Green as our featured colour.

I was inspired by some home decor I saw and created a bit of a funky background with the pot from the Planted Paradise stamp set. This is a Reversible stamp set which means that one side of the stamp has one image and you flip the stamp over to reveal another image.

I used the Stamparatus (retired) to stamp the black pot a few times. Any stamp positioning tool would work and enables you to get a nice dark image. I flipped the stamp over and inked up in Granny Apple Green ink, then spritzed the stamp before stamping the image. This gave the image a lovely watercoloured look.

Planted Paradise stamp set

I drew some lines with the Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend using a ruler as a guide. Starting off with the bullet tip I felt it needed some wider stripes so I freehanded the thicker stripes with a brush end of the Blend. This was totally out of character for me as I love straight, neat lines. However, I loved the look of these and will probably be trying this again for some custom backgrounds.

Foliage from the Flowers of Beauty dies provides a simple focal point against the different textures and patterns on the card.

I hope you have enjoyed the inspiration. Many of these products are retiring on the 30th of April and you can shop them in our Last Chance Sale while supplies last.

Have a lovely weekend.
