New at SU Blog Hop – 2020 In Colours

Welcome to my blog Stamping Flair. I am based in Melbourne, Australia and today I am thrilled to be participating in the New at SU Blog Hop for the first time. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world and this month we are showcasing our beautiful new In-Colours.

I chose the Fancy Phrases bundle which includes the Fancy Phrases stamp set and the Fancy Tag Topper punch to showcase the 5 colours – Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, Misty Moonlight and Bumble Bee. My card bases were chosen from the Neutrals range to keep a uniformed look.

Cinnamon Cider

I find that Cinnamon Cider can be quite a strong colour so I toned it down by adding it to a Crumb Cake card base. The Cinnamon Cider panel has been stamped with the edge of the large stamp in the Fancy Phrases stamp set to create a border right around. The Very Vanilla panel has been embossed with the Old World embossing folder and sponged in Bumble Bee and Cinnamon Cider to create a soft shading. Accents of gold foil and ribbon work well with the earthy tones of Cinnamon Cider .

Just Jade

This is my favourite of the 5. A Smoky Slate card base with a frame die cut from the Stitched Rectangles dies create a lovely combination against the stamped-off Just Jade flowers. I used the Fancy Tag Topper punch to create the black tag. Being able to turn the punch over and align the centre of the cardstock, makes it easy to create smaller tags than the 5cm which is the actual width of the punch.

Magenta Madness

A simple card layout for my Magenta Madness and Basic Gray card. I have added detail with the Little Details embossing folder, running it through twice to get the border on either side of the cardstock. The Glitter Organdy ribbon adds a bit of sparkle to this ‘Miss You’ card. Now that we are back in lock down, I’ve got someone in mind that I could send this to. Aren’t we just so fortunate to have this hobby which we can use to lift up others. 

Bumble Bee

This is another one of those fairly strong colours which I like to add in muted tones. I started off by adding a piece of the Peony Garden DSP to my Gray Granite card base. Then I stamped a panel of Whisper White cardstock with the Dry Brush stamp and cut 3×1 1½” strips. The border from the Peony dies in Basic Black works well with these colours and creates an elegant edge to the card. I really like this layout at it’s also great for using up cardstock and DSP scraps. 

The outer sentiment does have a second part which I stamped on the inside of the card.

Misty Moonlight

An ombré background from the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper against a Sahara Sand card base was used for my last card. I created a tag from another section of the same DSP and stamped some flowers in Misty Moonlight. Cinnamon Cider adds a nice contrast on this card against all the blues. 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have enjoyed my cards and they inspire to create using our In-Colours. I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment.

aWow Blog Hop – cas(e) a Team Member

Hi,

Welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne, Australia and our July Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop. We are a team of 24 Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who are representative of the various Stampin’ Up! markets around the world. 

AWOW Blog Hop Header

This is a very exciting hop as we get to CAS(E) -Copy and Selectively Edit or Copy and Share Everything – one of our team members. We have 2 special guests this month – Kylie and Bruno Bertucci and they too will be part of the CASEing. The names were drawn under strict Facebook Live conditions by Angie Mackenzie. I must say, it was very exciting to watch her draw from the 2 piles of names she had. 

I’m so excited to be able to CASE Chris Smith today whose FB account I have been stalking! Chris creates amazing projects so I had much to choose from. I kept saying, oh I must CASE that and I must CASE that. I chose both a stamp set and a layout from one of Chris’ beautiful cards. 

Front Flip Fancy Fold Card with Prized Peony bundle

Here is Chris’ project which I have CASEd. I love the monochromatic look of this card and the beautiful soft tones.  As I was writing this post, I realized I had unwittingly used the same ribbon Chris had on her card as well. You know what they say- great minds!

I created a Front Flip fancy fold card and used a very similar layout to the card Chris created. I stamped one of the peony stamps all over the Whisper White cardstock to create a beautiful background. The main peony has been coloured with a combination of Stampin’ Blends to achieve this shaded flower. You can find the measurements to create this card in my original post featuring this fold.

So in this challenge, Tania Tobin got to CASE me. Now to add a little bit of extra fun, I thought I’d CASE one of Tania’s cards and again I went for a beautiful and simple layout which she featured on this poppy card.

I die cut 4 rectangles and embossed them with the Tasteful Textiles embossing folder. The tulle ribbon was sponged with Balmy Blue to coordinate with my card.

I added a die cut sentiment from the Well Said dies to keep the card simple in design. A few sequins add some sparkle to this card. This fun layout is great to try with different patterned papers and colours. 

You are currently with Rochelle Laird-Smith in Australia. I hope you have enjoyed my cards today and I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment. Make sure you follow the hop to see all the fun we have had in CASEing our fellow team members. I know have enjoyed this hop a lot.

Flowers for Every Season Team Swap Cards

I recently organized a swap with my team members using products from the new Annual Catalogue. I chose the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper and let the colours from it help me decide my colour palette for this card. It’s so easy to coordinate colours using the DSP  as a starting point.

I can tell you, Magenta Madness and Poppy Parade is not a colour combination I would have usally put together but it looks so beautiful on this DSP that I chose this for my card. So, then began my fussy cutting which I rather like to do. I cut flowers apart from the DSP, layering them to add dimension.

I went for a crisp, white background, embossing the Whisper White panel with the Tasteful Textiles Embossing Folder. Coordinating with my colour scheme, I wanted a Poppy Parade label in the centre but I really wanted a softer background. First I heat embossed the leaves from the Lovely You stamp set and then sponged Poppy Parade over it to achieve the look I wanted. 

A linen bow was added along with a sentiment from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set. Then I added a Champagne Rhinestone for just a touch of extra elegance. 

All the products I have used for this card are listed at the bottom of this post and it’s a fun and quick card to make.

I currently have a BOGO (Buy One Get One Free) sale running on my Stamping Flair Online Events Group. All items I have for sale are listed in albums. For every dollar you spend on retired products you get to spend the equivalent dollar value on anything in the new catalogue. So for instance, if you select a bundle for $50 from my retired product, you will have $50 to spend on new product. Essentially, you will be receiving my retired goods for FREE. Join my Facebook Group to browse the products on offer. 

You will also receive Bonus Days vouchers for every order over $90.
