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.

Spotlight on Nature with Freshly Made Sketches FMS639

This card was a result of a leftover floral sprig that I had coloured from the Spotlight on Nature stamp set. On Wednesday night I held my FB Live and I was happily creating my card and then I realized all people could see was my face and not was I was doing! So, it was back to the start for my Live and I ended up with an extra lot of flowers.

These flowers were perfect for the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches FMS639 as I was able to add it to the panel on the right.

Underneath the flowers I’ve added an additional set of leaves which I fussy cut and a label from the Labels & Layers Mix & Match Ephemera Pack.

The Wild Wheat panel has been die cut from the Thoughtful Journey Designer Series Paper and I created a longer die cut piece by running the die through twice. The first time I partially die cut the label and the second time I partially ran it through from the opposite end so that the centres joined, A sentiment from another of our Ephemera Packs completes this sketch.

AWOW Blog Hop – Sketch with Latte Love Bundle

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

Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday blog hop where we have a sketch challenge for May. This is my favourite type of challenge and I’ve given the Latte Love bundle a bit of a twist with some new products.

If you are new to our blog hop, we are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from different parts of the world and on the 2nd Wednesday of each month we share inspiration with you using our beautiful products centred around a particular theme.

When I selected the Latte Love bundle as the product I wanted to use with this sketch, I didn’t anticipate going in the direction which my project took me. As I started creating, I wanted to create a different look with this mug to those I had previously made. I decided to replicate a beautiful Bone China style mug with watercoloured flowers – similar to something you would use at high tea.

To achieve this I stamped the mug in Crumb Cake ink, stamped off, on Fluid 100 Cardstock. Then I took the floral corner stamp from the Country Flowers stamp set, masked off a section, and stamped the floral image onto the mug with Crumb Cake ink stamped off. Using a Blender Pen, I worked on the watercolouring of the flowers, mug and coffee.

The outline of the stamped image was quite faint and I did improvise a little bit with the flowers and leaves where I couldn’t see the image too well. This didn’t matter as it lent to the watercoloured look I was aiming for.

The handle was stamped separately in Versamark and heat embossed in Gold. Once watercoloured, I attached this to the cup. For the saucer, I used the Round We Go dies, watercolouring the base and adding a Gold embossed centre for a matching set with my cup.

Some leaves from the Citrus Blooms dies fill in around the handle and the sentiment. A simple Gold bow and Pretty in Pink Resin Dots completed my vision for this card.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my part of the world in Melbourne today and I hope you have been inspired by my card. I would love for you to leave me a comment as you hop through to see Cheryll Miller‘s beautiful project.

Magnolia Mood – Colour Palette #49

Inspired by Colour Palette #49 I’ve created today’s card which uses the Magnolia Mood bundle from our Oneline Exclusives range. If you follow me on Facebook, you will know that I share a new colour palette each Monday for inspiration. You can share what you create using these palettes on my page under the image.

The Magnolia Mood bundle comes with a stamp set and dies which cut out the stamped images as well as individual magnolia dies. I’ve used these individual images as the focal point on my card.

For the Starry Sky element, I blended some Starry Sky ink on a die cut label from the All That dies. These dies are retiring and can be purchased for just $24.50 in our Last Chance sale. Original price was $49. I just love all the unique little dies that come in this set.

Colouring the image with Watercolour Pencils I was able to achieve some beautiful colour variation on the flowers and leaves.

I’m following the sketch at Just Add Ink Challenges #697with the smaller flower making up the little hexagon on the right.

I heat embossed my sentiment in Black to make it stand out against those beautiful colours.

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my card. For more inspiration, join me tonight at 7:30pm for my weekly Live on my Facebook Page.
