Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop – Adorable Owls

Welcome to our Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop with a sketch challenge as inspiration.

Stamping Inkspirations Blog Header

I used the cute Adorable Owls stamp set to feature on this card. You can get this stamp set free with a $90 order during Sale-A-Bration.

I’ve also used the Country Floral Lane suite to enhance this owl which I coloured in with Stampin’ Blends.

To create the flower, punch out several hearts using the Country Bouquet punch. As this heart is not symmetrical, I cutt it in half and only used one side of it, adhering the petals to a small circle to form my flower.

Our theme also asked us to add some glimmer and shine. I added some Wink of Stella to the wings which is really hard to capture but it is there! This is what I love about Wink of Stella – it adds a subtle shimmer without mess.

After trying Mint Macaron and finding it too light, I coloured the Pearl Hearts with a Light Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blend to coordinate with my card.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have been inspired by my project to create something this weekend. Next on our hop is Mo Rootes. Please follow through and see her beautiful project.

Awow Blog Hop – Case the Mini Duo

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

Welcome to our first Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop for 2023. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who share creative inspiration with you on the second Wednesday of the month. Today we are CASEing a project from either the new Mini or Sale-A-Bration catalogues.

I am CASEing this card which can be found on Page 26 of the Mini Catalogue using the Queen Bee bundle. I love the tag with all the texture on it. I used the Thanks a Bunch stamp set which is a Sale-A-Bration offering to create my card.

This cute little stamp set can be found on Page 5 of the Sale-A-Bration catalogue and you can earn it free with a $90 order.

I’ve paired it with the Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper which a bumper pack of 48 sheets of 12″ x 12″ paper. This is also a free earn during Sale-A-Bration. With some beautiful colours this Fresh Freesia sheet coordinated well with my carrots.

I added some texture to the tag with Embossing Paste and some layered stamping and blending. The carrots were then fussy cut and added to the tag.

I hope you have enjoyed this project and you can catch me make this on my FB Live tonight. Please follow the hop through and leave a comment as you are inspired by each of these ladies’ beautiful work. Next on our hop is the lovely Cazz Boylan and I can’t wait to see what she has CASEd.

Watercoloured Bird Day 10 – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

I’m a few days behind with the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge. This past weekend I was up in Sydney enjoying On Stage which is a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator only event. This was an all day event on the Saturday where we got treated to lots of demonstrations using new products from the upcoming January – April Mini Catalogue and we got to see a copy of the catalogue. On the Friday night, I got to enjoy Centre Stage which was a reception for demonstrators who are Silver Elite or above. This was the first time I was able to attend in-person as the last few events have been online due to COVID. It was such a buzz to meet everyone.

My favourite part of the event was meeting my fellow demonstrators, either catching up or making new friends. It made me so happy. If you want to see photos I’ve got some on my FB page and I’ll be sharing them in my newsletter during the week as well.

For this card, I pulled out this sweet bird – again – from the Perched in a Tree bundle. I just can’t seem to get enough of it. I’ve coloured it with watercolour pencils which I’ve been using more of recently. There is some much that can be achieved with this colouring tool.

The Leaf Fall Embossing Folder adds some texture to the White Cardstock behind the bird.

All Wrapped Up Day 8 – 30 Day Cardmaking Challenge

When I saw today’s theme for #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge, I thought of a tree laden with beautifully wrapped gifts. Giving gifts is something I love about the Christmas season. The whole process of picking the ideal present, going to the shops (or online shopping), wrapping it, making a gift tag and tying a beautiful bow, just everything makes this such a lovely part of Christmas.

I used the Mini Pocket Envelopes Dies to create my gifts. This is a two-for where when you die cut your gifts, you will get enough to use on 2 cards. I trimmed the two halves to suit my gift size and then turned the top over, which is already scored, to form the box lid.

The cute paper bow and label are die cuts from this same die set. It’s a really great set with lots of little accessory dies.
