Ink. Stamp. Share Blog Hop – Garden Wishes

Hello and welcome to our Ink. Stamp. Share monthly blog hop. Our theme this month is Spring/Summer Sale-A-Bration and I chose the Garden Wishes stamp set for a floral take on this theme.

I wanted to show a softer card using the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper. For the design of this card, I began by choosing my colour palette. I started off by picking Misty Moonlight which was a colour in the DSP. I do this quite often as it gives me a starting point to pick my coordinating colours. Plus with our amazing colour coordinated products it’s just easy to match cardstock and embellishments.

I watercoloured a panel of Shimmery White Cardstock with Pool Party and Misty Moonlight as a backdrop for the dandelion. Watercolouring is a great technique for achieving a soft look to your projects. Then I added some extra leaves die cut from Soft Sea Foam cardstock. Some extra colour was added with Granny Apple Green and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends. The edges of the flower and leaves were sponged with Soft Suede giving some warmth to the stark white edges.

Some Bumblebee Gingham Trim ties in with the dandelion and I’ve added a cute Ladybug Trinket to embellish the card. Isn’t it cute?

I hope my project inspires you to use your Designer Series Paper with alternate colour palettes and have fun creating! Thanks for stopping by and please leave me a comment. I’d love to hear from you.

Colour Combo Blog Hop – August 2020

Hi,

Welcome to another Colour Combo Blog Hop. I’m a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Melbourne, Australia. Today, we are mixing Rich Razzleberry, Mint Macaron and Soft Suede for our blog hop.  Quite an unusual colour palette with the Soft Suede in the mix but it sure gets the creative mind working. 

Colour Combo Blog Hop, August 2020

Mint Macaron as a colour always makes me think of macarons. The idea began to form in my head with macarons and berries and milkshakes – mint and pale pink. I had something close to macarons – and that was cookies. It was time to open my Nothing’s Better than Bundle which just arrived in my last delivery. Now this is a bundle that at first didn’t catch my eye in the Annual Catalogue. However, I saw so many cute projects made with it that I just had to get it. Have you experienced this before? 

 

I started by creating 2 panels of water colour washed cardstock in Mint Macaron and Rich Razzleberry. The softness that the wash creates was the look I wanted. Once dry, I used the Best Plaid die to cut out the Rich Razzleberry panel and cut that down. This is a very quick and easy background to create. 

The cookies are two-step stamped in Soft Suede.  For the base layer, I stamped off twice to achieve a very light shade. Then I stamped the choc-chips in full strength Soft Suede. 

Does this card resonate with you at the moment? In lock down, we sure are running to the pantry and refrigerator a whole lot more than we would normally do!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this fun card and perhaps I may have convinced you to add this to your Wish List if you don’t already own it.  Click on the Next button to go to Caroline Peck’s blog.

Ink, Stamp, Share Blog Hop – Christmas

Hi and welcome,

Our theme for the Ink, Stamp, Share Monthly Blog Hop is Christmas and it’s great to be able to participate in it with other talented demonstrators. 

Ink, Stamp, Share Monthly Blog Hop Header

I’ve got a coordinated set of projects using the Perfectly Plaid bundle and I added some alternate colours for this project. 

I used the Gold Mini Pizza Boxes which are in the Wrapped in Plaid suite and embossed it with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder. In order to emboss all sections of the box, I had to insert it several times in the die cutting machine. Some sections were overlapped as the box was too wide and I added shims on top instead of the top plate. 

Coordinated handmade Christmas gift box and card in plaid

The card uses a panel of Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper and then adhered a piece of embossed Gold Foil on top. The trees have been stamped in Melon Mambo and I stamped and punched a second set for the Mini Pizza Box at the same time. 

Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid card

I like the pink against the Soft Sea Foam and Shaded Spruce, giving a different colour palette for this paper. Then I cut 2 strips of DSP for the box and wrapped one piece around the bottom, cutting off excess, adding the other piece on the lid of the box and doing the same. Then I wrapped the twine right around. 

Top Tip

Wish you had a third hand when tying bows? Use a glue dot to hold the first knot to the box. Then tie another knot to secure and tie your bow. The glue dot stops the twine from slipping around. This also works for ribbon.

Kylie’s Top Ten International Highlights Winners Blog Hop September 2019

Kylie's Top Ten Winners Blop Hop

Hi Friends,

Thanks for stopping by my blog – Stamping Flair. A few weeks ago I created this card for Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights. I was so thrilled to find out that I was picked in the top ten. Thank you so much for voting. You can find out all the details for this card HERE. 

Encouragement card, Stampin' Up!

Today the top ten winners are participating in a blog hop and I am so excited to take part alongside these talented demonstrators. Thank you to Kylie Bertucci for hosting this event. Our theme for this hop is Encouragement. Nature's Beauty stamp set by Stampin' Up!, Make a difference to Mental Health

It appears that I have stuck to the same kind of imagery – cute little animals. I didn’t even think about it until I started comparing the cards. For today’s cards, I have used the bunny from the beautiful, Nature’s Beauty stamp set which is on Page 63 of the Holiday Catalogue. I stamped the image in Soft Suede on Shimmery White cardstock and then watercoloured it using Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green, Garden Green, Crushed Curry and Early Espresso Watercolour pencils. 

 Watercoloured handmade encouragement card with Come to Gather Designer Series Paper

The Come to Gather Designer Series Paper is featured on both my cards. This DSP has images of pumpkins and autumn leaves and is part of the Come to Gather suite. As you can see, the designs work well on any type of project.

The DSP has a bit of a country feel to it and I thought the addition of a strip of Crumb Cake cardstock embossed with the Corrugated embossing folder added a rustic feel to coordinate with the wood DSP. An encouraging sentiment from Harvest Hellos has been added together with the ribbon under the Shimmery White cardstock panel.

Watercoloured handmade encouragement card with Come to Gather Designer Series Paper

Measurements:

  • Cajun Craze – 21cm x 14.8cm (scored in half), 7cm x 10.5cm (Stitched Rectangle)
  • Crumb Cake – 4cm x 14.5cm, scrap for sentiment
  • Pretty Peacock – 2 1/4″ circle
  • Shimmery White – 2″ circle
  • DSP – 9.9cm x 14.2cm, 5.5cm x 9cm

Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop – Card/Project Kits

Hi friends,

Welcome to Stamping Flair. I am blog hopping with other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from the Stampin’ Dreams Facebook Group. 

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop July Designer Series Paper

The theme this month is Card/Project Kits. Stampin’ Up! offers a variety of kits both in the Annual and Holiday catalogues. You can browse the entire range of kits here. Kits can be used as suggested or altered. With the stamp sets and accessories provided they can cross over to other projects as well which make them versatile.

My cards today use the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley from the Holiday catalogue. While a kit is centred around a specific project, a product medley gives the crafter a whole lot of products to create anything you like. 

Most Wonderful Time Christmas card with Silver embossed Christmas tree and deer

Most Wonderful Time Product Medley includes:

* 11-piece photopolymer stamp set (clear blocks sold separately)
* 48 sheets of 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper, 8 each of 6 double-sided designs
* 12 gold foil card fronts, 4 each of 3 designs
* 6 sticker sheets, 2 sheets each of 3 designs
* Gold/white tinsel trim 9.1 m
* 58 adhesive-backed gold faceted stars
* 6-piece Most Wonderful Time Dies (use with a die-cutting & embossing machine)

This card uses the some of the products from this product medley to create a different colour palette with Seaside Spray and Silver. I masked the stamp with the image of presents, using a post-it-note and inked the bow up with Seaside Spray to create a border on the card base. The tree has been heat embossed in Silver and coloured with Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends. 

Most Wonderful Time Product Medley, Stampin' Up!, Christmas card in alternate colours

I used the Christmas Countdown stamp set for the stamped Whisper White layer. Then I added Night of Navy and Silver Foil strips together with the beautiful, sparkly organdy ribbon for the deer to sit on.

Handmade Christmas card with Tree and presents Red and Green

For my second card, I stayed with the colour palette of the product medley – Basic Black, Gold foil, Old Olive, Real Red and Whisper White. For the layers, I added different strips of Designer Series Paper and stamped the sentiment on one of the included stickers. The presents were fussy cut from a sheet of DSP. The pretty gold tinsel trim and star that adorns the top of the tree are also included in this medley. This is a value pack of products that you will be able to create so many Christmas projects and cards with.

You are currently visiting Rochelle Laird-Smith of Stamping Flair in Australia. Hope I have inspired you to try out the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley with all it’s creative options.
