Stampers Showcase Blog Hop – It’s Your Birthday!

Hi,

Are you celebrating a birthday today? You’re in for a virtual treat in this blog hop because we’re all here to wish you a happy birthday. Whether it’s your birthday or not, thank you for stopping by my blog today. I’m blog hopping with other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world to bring you some birthday cheer.

I figured I needed to bring in some gold for my celebration and as I hadn’t used the patterned masks for a while, I decided this was the project it was going to make an appearance on. At $10 for 4 masks, this is great value as you can use them in a variety of ways.

I used Shimmery White cardstock to heat emboss on as I like the lovely shimmer on it and also the beautiful smooth finish which is lovely to brayer on. Laying the mask over the cardstock, I applied Versamark all over the panel ensuring it was completely covered and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. 

Using a sponge brayer, I applied Soft Sea Foam, Pear Pizzazz, Garden Green and Call me Clover inks to create the ombre effect over the entire panel. I used a kitchen towel to wipe back the excess ink which brings up the gold. The ribbon ribbon was attached under this panel using Tear n’ Tape. Then I mounted this with Stampin’ Dimensionals onto the card base. 

How to create an ombre effect with a brayer and Stampin' Up! ink

I chose a Whisper White panel in the centre to soften all the green and gold. Embossing it with the Parisian Flourish Embossing Folder added more texture and softness to the rich, gold background. The flowers are from the Botanical Prints Product Medley which is a fabulous product, containing everything you need to get creative. 

Currently you are visiting Rochelle Laird-Smith of Stamping Flair based in Australia. All products and measurements used on my card are listed below. I hope I have inspired you today and maybe you’ll give this technique a try.

Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop – Ribbon

Hi Friends,

Welcome to my blog, Stamping Flair today. I am a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Blind Bight, Victoria. Today I am taking part in the Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop and we are hoping to inspire you to use your ribbon stash, through the projects we share.

Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop - March 2020 Ribbon

I created this scrapbook page with my daughter Cassidy in mind. Cassidy loves music and she is currently studying music and plays clarinet, guitar, piano and she also sings. She wants to be a music teacher so I think this would make a lovely page for some photos of her doing what she loves.

My page started off with me selecting a stamp set. So I chose my favourite from the Mini Catalogue, Music from the Heart. My next decision was ribbon – oh, my don’t we have ribbon to choose from at Stampin’ Up!. 

Music Stave used as border on a scrapbook layout

The Tri-Colour ribbon is a little bit different and I thought that would be nice to use on my scrapbook page. I added some tulle ribbon as well as the White Silver Metallic edge ribbon to create a feature on my page.

Then I coordinated this with the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper to add to the Purple Posy base.

I stamped the stave on the top of the Whisper White cardstock which created a border on the top of the page. The stamp is not this long but as it is photopolymer, it’s easy to line it up. 

The Treble Clef and notes were added to finish the ‘piece’. I showed Cassidy my completed project and she loved it. She also correctly noted (in jest) that the Treble Clef was on the wrong side of the stave! LOL. So this is an artistic Treble Clef not a musical one!
