New at SU Blog Hop – Sketch Challenge with Flower Cart Stamp Set

New at SU 2024 Header

Hello and welcome to the New at SU blog hop for June. Our team is sharing inspiration using the sketches from Page 22 of the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. Have you seen these sketches? A new addition to our catalogue, there’s 22 sketches to inspire your creativity and each one can be interpreted in so many ways.

I’ve chosen this sketch to work with today using the Flower Cart stamp set and coordinating dies.

It’s a chilly winter’s day here in Melbourne and my card is far removed from the reality of the weather with a beautiful spring feel to it. The stamps and dies have several elements which you can use to crreate all variations of the flower cart – both stamped and pieced together with die cuts. I went for a mix, stamping the tray in Basic Beige and distressing the edges with some Crumb Cake ink. Then I added the die cut awning over it.

The wheels and the stand of the cart were die cut from Basic White Cardstock. I blended Crumb Cake ink over the images and stamped the tree ring image from the Textured Timber stamp set over it in Pecan Pie ink to create the wood texture.

I added colour to the stamp directly with a sponge dauber for the different coloured flowers. Then I added some extra shading with a Watercolour Pencil to fill in the white space around the leaves.

The 2 narrow strips on the sketch were swapped out with the flower cart and some die cuts from the Perennial Postage dies. I stamped the pebbled path onto the ribbon for an extra detail to complete that little corner, along with a sign hand written using a White Gel Pen.

I hope this inspires you to use these sketches as you create. Please follow our hop through for lots of inspiration using several of these sketches.

Simply Zinnia Birthday Card – Colour Palette #53

Welcome to a new week and today I’ve got a card to share with you using the beautiful Simply Zinnia bundle. This bundle is part of a suite of products which includes a Stamp Set, dies, Designer Series Paper, Embossing Folder and Embellishments. The DSP which is part of this suite is bright and I wanted to give this bundle a soft look by using some subtle colours using Colour Palette #53.

To begin with, I stamped the floral image in Basic Gray instead of Tuxedo Black as it provided a softer outline.The flowers were then coloured in with Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. For the leaves I used Lost Lagoon and added some Petal Pink inbetween. Leaves don’t always have to be the regular green and I just loved how these turned out.

I added the image to 2 labels die cut from the Unbounded Love Dies. I layered this onto a die cut from the Frames & Flowers Specialty Designer Series Paper which was cut down to the size I needed. This paper had just the right colours to fit in with this project.

I stamped the sentiment in Basic Gray as well and layered it onto Flirty Flamingo Cardstock. This coordinated well with those beautiful Flirty Flamingo Dots for Days embellishments.

Don’t miss out on getting the Simply Zinnia bundle at the discounted price of $81.50 during our Stamp & Die bundle sale which is on until 30th June. You can also save 10% on all our Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machines.

Have a great week ahead.

Create a Fun Background with a Brayer

Today I’ve got a card on which I’ve combined a few different techniques. I really wanted to use the new Stampin’ Brayer so I started off with a piece of White Cardstock and brayered Tahitian Tide, Parakeet Party and Highland Heather in different directions. For even coverage, make sure you roll the brayer right through when inking it up.

Once I brayered the 3 colours, I die cut a Deckled Circle. On this, I stamped some leaves from the Gorgeously Made stamp set in Tahitian Tide and layered it onto another Deckled Circled die cut from Parakeet Party Cardstock.

The torn floral piece at the bottom was another one of my experimental pieces which I put to use.

To create this look

Ink up the Layered Florals Embossing Folder on the debossed side (side with Stampin’ Up! logo) with Gorgeous Grape ink. Add a piece of Fresh Freesia Cardstock in the folder and run it through your Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. I tore a piece off and layered it with some additional DSP pieces under the sentiment.

The focal image of flowers are from the Irresistible Blooms bundle which is available as part of our Online Exclusives range. If you live in Australia, you can shop all the products I have used on this card in my Online Store or by getting in touch with me. A full list of supplies are below.

Monochromatic Starry Sky – Rock & Roll

Happy Saturday friends, It’s lovely to be able to share with you my first card using the Rock Star bundle. I’m a fan of all music stamp sets so this particular suite was going to end up with me at some stage. I just got it in last week and I love all the fun options that are available with the stamps, dies, embellishments and the black and white Designer Series Paper. It’s a great guy set and those black and white papers are so versatile.

I followed the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #fms626 . I started by inking up my guitar in Tuxedo Black. Then I wiped back the neck end of the guitar with a paper towel and coloured the stamp with the Starry Sky Stampin’ Write Marker. I added any details that may have come off with the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker. Then I stamped and die cut the image. On top of this I stamped a texture image from the Of Art & Texture stamp set. This is part of our Online Exclusives range. I really love how this stamp added just that little bit of colour to the image.

For the background some Shimmery White Embossing Paste was coloured with Starry Sky ink refill before application. The shimmer is so much fun and adds to the rock star look of this card. I applied it fairly thick as I wanted a more uneven, textured look.

I die cut a circle using the Stylish Shapes dies and added some blending through a mask. This was cut in half to form the sketch. The guitar was added on top with a pick die cut from Silver Foil. To complete the card I added a heat embossed sentiment with a little star from the embellishments in the Rock & Roll suite.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely weekend and a long weekend if you are in Melbourne!

Monochromatic Tahitian Tide – Magnolia Mood bundle

Welcome to another Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Challenge. This week we are focussing on Tahitian Tide. Just a fwe days ago I received some new products from the Online Exclusives collection which will be released on 5th March. So I chose to use some of these on today’s card.

I generally like to pair a neutral colour with the featured colour when I’m creating for these monochromatic challenges. Black just seemed a little harsh with the idea I had in mind and I ended up choosing Night of Navy as what I call a ‘support’ colour!

I started off with the 3 squares and stamped the Drizzling Droplets background stamp on the smaller squares. This is one of the new products you can order on the 5th. Against the central embossed square, the small dots brought a touch of softness to the layout.

For my featured image I used the Magnolia Mood bundle. I didn’t quite like the floral image that was attached to the stamped leaves so I just trimmed that out and added a different die cut on top. The Tahitian Tide flower is an outline and I glued this onto Night of Navy Cardstock and fussy cut around it to give me a two-tone flower.

A product list is at the bottom of this post to help you place your order. I will update it on the 5th of March to include the new products.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
