Stampers Showcase Blog Hop – Annual Catalogue Pre-Order

Welcome to our Stampers Showcase Blog Hop and this month we are playing with brand new products. As a perk of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, we get to pre-order from our catalogues prior to release to customers. The 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue comes out on 4th May.

Stampers Showcase Blog Header Hop Header Hop Header

I’ve chosen the Hand Penned Suite which is on Pages 104-105 of the catalogue. I love this two-step stamp set which means you can add colour with some quick stamping.

The Hand Penned Designer Series Paper has got a beautiful range of florals in a variety of colours and a range of our new In-Colours as well. For the top half of this card I added the new Linen adhesive-backed specialty paper.

The brick look background was created with one of the host stamp sets Natural Textures. With the use of the Stamparatus, I was able to create a border with it.

The flowers were stamped with Misty Moonlight and new In-Colour, Pale Papaya, with Garden Green for the leaves.

Please follow the hop through for lots more inspiration from our new catalogue. Next on our hop is Stephanie Nash from Canada.

Getting More out of the Sweet Little Valentine’s Card Pack

The Sweet Little Valentine’s Cards & More pack on Page 16 of the Mini Catalogue comes with Note Cards and Card fronts to create quick cards. You can also use these as the starting point to create larger cards.

Sweet Little Valentines Card, Stampin' Up!, SU, Hearts, card kit

To create this card I cut one of the note cards in half, giving me 2 mattes. I mounted this on a Pool Party card base with a panel of Embossed Basic White cardstock.. A few Metallic Pearls tie in with the gold sentiment and border.

With the other half of the Note Card I was able to create another larger card. Some Embossing Paste adds a layer of texture on the card base.

To create this card, I stamped over one of the panels which is included in the pack. I love the brushed paint effect on this card.

Again, I used the other half of the card to create another larger card in Petal Pink.

The sentiment has been stamped on one of card panels and die cut with a label die. Using these textured backgrounds for your sentiments gives a lovely coordinated look.

Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop – All Tied Up

Hi friends. Welcome to our Stamping Inkspirations, Birthday themed Blog Hop. I’m a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator based in Melbourne and it’s lovely to be involved in this blog hop. We have 33 talented crafters sharing their creativity so you are going to have lots of inspiration for the next birthday you’ll be creating for.

Stamping Inkspirations Blog Header

I’ve created a masculine themed card as a lot of times the beautiful florals take over my craft room and the men get left behind! I have used the Well Suited Designer Series Paper to it’s full extent making this a very quick card to create.

The bow ties have been stamped on different sheets of the DSP, die cut and then laid on another design. Although this has so many patterns going on, the coordinating DSP ‘ties’ it all together.

Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop, April 2021, Well Suited bundle, Masculine, Male themed birthday card, Bow tie, Stampin' Up!, SU

The sentiment was stamped and punched out then matte onto a Misty Moonlight label which has been cut in half. This is a quick and effective way to make your sentiments stand out.

Stamp ‘n Hop – Anything Goes

Welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne and to our ‘Anything Goes’ Blog Hop. When there is no specific theme, it can be quite difficult to come up with something. So I’m sharing a card which I was commissioned to make for a friend’s daughter’s wedding. I generally ask someone what sort of card they would like and in what colour scheme. I was told ‘Oh, she’ll like anything’. Hence, this card is here for ‘anything’ goes.

Stamp 'n Hop, Anything Goes, April 2021, Stampin' Up!, SU
Stamp 'n Hop Blog Hop, Wedding Card, Forever and Always, lace heart, Ornate Floral  Embossing folder, Stampin' Up!, SU, Embossed Wedding card

I created a slim line card which is 20cm x 20cm folded in half. This fits perfectly in a DL business envelope. Although I did use Copper Embossing Powder on this card to tie in with the foil, you could substitute it for gold and it would work as well.

Stamp 'n Hop, April 2021, Anything Goes, Always in my Heart, Stampin' Up!, SU, Wedding Card, Love

I ran the cardstock through twice with the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder so I could get full coverage of the longer cardstock. Some die cut flowers and leaves add a nice finishing touch to the lacy heart. The dies come with 2 each of the flowers which make cutting multiples much faster. The heart die cut from the Love You Always Specialty DSP makes this card extra special to share for a wedding.

Next on our hop is Melinda Whittington. I hope you check out everyone’s projects and I can’t wait to see what inspiration all our talented ladies have for us.

Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop – M is for Marine

Hi, Welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne. It’s been a while since I’ve taken part in the Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop and I’ve had a lot of fun getting back into it with this month’s theme. Working a scrapbook layout with the theme of M. So many ideas were going around in my head including techniques and colours.

Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop - March 2020 Ribbon

Finally I decided on a theme of Marine and Masculine. My partner, Adrian is mad keen on the water sports – from surfing to kayaking and I jokingly tell him that he should have a house on the water as he enjoys it so much. We live close to the beach so he’s pretty fortunate in that regard.

This page is a reflection of our surroundings. Generally when you think scrapbooking, 12″x12″ paper is what we look for. However, our 6″x6″ Designer Series Paper packs work just as well. I mounted 2 sheets of Sahara Sand paper onto Night of Navy Mattes. This gave it a smart look against the Sahara Sand base.

Stamped images from the Sailing Home stamp set create the Marine look to this scrapbook layout. For some added texture, I die cut some elements from the Cinnamon Cider Velveteen Paper.
