AWOW Blog Hop – This or That Country Flowers

This or That? I wonder what you will pick in our challenge today? It’s the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop (AWOW for short) and this month we are sharing not just 1 but 2 projects with our This or That April challenge.

It could be different orientations of the same layout, perhaps different colours, alternate Designer Series Papers, different colouring mediums – the possibilities are endless. I’ve chosen the new Country Flowers bundle from the upcoming 2024-2025 Annual Catalogue for my This or That projects and went with varied interior decor styles.

We need YOU to participate today by commenting and letting us know whether you pick This or That!

THIS – SHABBY CHIC

For my first project I went with a shabby chic style with soft pinks and white. I used Watercolour Pencils to colour in my image.

Of course there had to be a doily in there for a beautiful country look. On top of that I added some Cardstock which I had treated with Embossing Paste I coloured with Pretty in Pink. First I applied a layer with a Palette Knife and then I added more paste through a mask. Once it dried I used my finger to dab on a little more ink over the panel. This was then torn to create a rustic look.

THAT – COASTAL

When I saw this particular background I immediately though of the beach. I’ve kept the layout the same as the previous card. Alternating the leaves for the flowers fit the coastal vibe and colours.

Along with the Country Woods Designer Series Paper, I’ve also used the new So Swirly Embossing Folder. Keep an eye out for this Embossing Folder in the new releases. It’s a large 6″ x 8 1/2″ (15.2 x 21.6 cm). I added the surfboard and life buoy from the Beach Day bundle for an extra beachy feel.

I will be recreating this particular card on my FB Live tonight at 7:30 AEST. Replay will also be available on YouTube later on today.

Now, it’s your turn to let me know what your favourite is. I can’t wait to hear your selection. As for me, I don’t know what my favourite is 😂 as I really enjoyed creating them both.

Thank you so much for stopping by my corner of the world in Melbourne. I hope you enjoy all the beautiful inspiration you are going to be treated to today as you travel Around the World with us.

Next on our hop is my friend Cheryll Miller and I know she will have something amazing to share with you.

Garden Meadow #tgifc455 Card Sketch

Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to gather at a friend’s home along with other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators. We brought along whatever projects we wanted to work on. This was a fun opportunity to chat and catch up. I took along a bunch of stamped images from the Garden Meadow stamp set and lots of Stampin’ Blends. Colouring is an activity that I enjoy. Sometimes I’ll mess with my colouring for ages because I find it very relaxing.

So after that night my wheelbarrow image was ready for this sketch at TGIF Challenges #tgifc455. This formed the front panel of the sketch.

I offset 2 rectangles for the back panel of the sketch. One has been embossed with the Fall 3D Embossing Folder and the Everyday Details die cut was blended with Lemon Lolly and Calypso Coral ink to coordinate with the flowers.

A pleased ribbon attached with Tear and Tape was added to embellish the sentiment. I tried the Calypso Coral sentiment without the black and felt it got lost so I ended up adding the strip of Basic Black Cardstock behind it and I liked the look of this better.

I hope you have enjoyed the inspiration using this beautiful bundle. If you would like to add this bundle to your shopping list, you will qualify for a Sale-A-Bration reward until 29th February.

I’ll be hosting a free Online Class on my FB page at 11am AEDT. Please join me as I create a few projects using new catalogue products.

AWOW Blog Hop – Fall in Paris

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

Hello and welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday blog hop for November. On the 2nd Wednesday of each month, a group of us from various parts of the world share creative inspiration using Stampin’ Up! products. We are given fun themes to work with by our lovely leader, Angie Mckenzie. Our theme today is Fall in Paris and we had some photo inspiration.

I chose to go with fall or autum colours. In Melbourne, we are right in spring and today’s weather is really showing us what spring is like – sunshine, then rain, wind and thunder!

I coloured the daisies in autumn colours using two-step stamp and ink blending. There are 3 layers of the flowers which have been glued together to create the fullness of the arrangement along with some leaves.

The flowers have been placed on a diagonally cut panel which has been embossed with the Fall Leaf 3D Embossing Folder. I added a gingham ribbon as a contrast in texture. I love how it looks with just about everything and it didn’t disappoint with these diasies!

Video tutorial for this card is available below.

Thank you for taking the time to stop and read my post. I hope you have been inspired and please continue through our hop with my friend Cazz Boylan.

AWOW Blog Hop – Never Ever Grow Up

Hello and great to have you join me in sunny, windy, doesn’t-know-what-it-wants-to-be kind of day in Melbourne. It’s been beautiful but not great for allergy sufferers. Welcome to another Around the World on Wednesday blog hop. Whether you’re a child or a child-at-heart, our team have projects to inspire the child in each of us.

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

Each month, on the 2nd Wednesday, we share a worldwide hug creating projects inspired by beautiful Stampin’ Up! products.Here’s our fabulous team from ‘around the world’. So excited to have some new members join us too so make sure you check out all the inspiration both on our blogs and Instagram.

Around the World on Wednesday, Awow Blog Hop team, This is us August 2023

When I think of children I always think of how much fun they love to have and especially at birthdays and Christmas – it’s always fun to have a surprise. So with that in mind, I made a Pull Tab Slider Card. This has a secret message, moving element, some glitter and a cute balloon bearing bird. Not just suitable for a child, I think any adult may love to receive this fun card too!

Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop, Awow Blog Hop, August 2023, Sweet Songbirds, Stampin' Up!, SU, Pull Tab Slider Card, Birthday card for child, Kids birthday

To create the balloons, I inked up the image from the Celebrate with Tags stamp set and then pounced a Stampin’ Write Marker in a contrast colour. After this I spritzed the stamp and stamped on Fluid 100 Cardstock to create the watercoloured balloons.

I added a secret message under the slider section which was decorated with party images from the Taco Fiesta stamp set. The sweet bird flies through with a bunch of balloons to reveal the Happy Birthday.

I will be creating a video to show how to create this card, which will be uploaded this weekend. Subscribe to my YouTube Channel to be notified when new videos are posted.

Thank you for stopping by and I’d love for you to leave me a comment as you pass through to see what my friend Cheryll Miller has created today.

Birthday Cup of Tea

A bit of a change from all my Christmas projects to play along with the Colour Inkspirations #CI133 challenge. As I saw this photo inspiration, part of me wanted to use my favourite bird from the Perched in a Tree stamp set but I resisted!

Instead I’ve opted for a teacup stamped in Coastal Cabana with the spaces coloured with a Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend.

You can get the Tea Boutique stamps and dies on sale during our Seasonal Sale but the sale ends TODAY! Purchase them separately as it will give you a better price than purchasing as a bundle. Regular price $88, Sale Price $72.45. That’s a saving of $15.55.

I die cut the palm leaves from a piece of cardstock which I randomly stamped with some blotchy images with the Artistically Inked stamp set using Granny Apple Green and Mossy Meadow inks. Then I blended over the Cardstock with Granny Apple Green using a Blending Brush. This is a technique I use quite a lot as it gives me a variegated look on my leaves.

I used the sketch from Freshly Make Sketches #fms562 as inspiration for the layout of my card. The strips of Fresh Freesia DSP were blended over with Gorgeous Grape to deepen the colour.

A splattering with a Merry Merlot Marker adds the final colour of our palette to my card. Thank you for stopping by and for a list of products used on this card please scroll to the bottom of this post.
