Monochromatic Flirty Flamingo – Share a Milkshake

It’s our weekly Monochromatic Insta Hop with the Crafty Collaborations team and today our focus is Flirty Flamingo. With this colour I straightaway thought of the Share a Milkshake bundle.

I began with a die cut frame from the Scalloped Contours dies and stamped the rainbow from the Just My Type stamp set all over the piece. Then, using the Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend, I coloured around the border of the frame to create a faux matte.

I die cut one of the ice cream swirls from Basic White Cardstock. For the other, I coloured the stamp with a Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Marker then spritzed it with water and stamped it onto Basic White Cardstock. Once I die cut it, I splattered it with Light Smoky Slate dots by flicking the brush tip of the Stampin’ Blend against the cap. This gave me 2 different textures (or flavours) of ice cream.

I felt the ice cream needed a background which it would really pop against so I die cut a circle from a background that was created using strips of Cardstock and DSP. This is a fun way to use up some scraps. I used a leftover piece on the sentiment as well.

I die cut a cherry from Basic White and Rose Gold Cardstock, colouring the white one with Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends. Once I trimmed this, I added it on top of the Rose Gold die cut making this truly the ‘cherry on top’ of my card.

I hope you have been inspired with what I have shared today and can use some of the techniques in your creations. Thank you for taking the time to stop by. A product list is available below and you can shop these products in my Online Store or by getting in touch with me.

‘Tis the Season – Christmas Pinecones

Happy hump day friends, It’s a good feeling when you get here right? Seeing that Christmas is not too far away and it’s always nice to get a head start on those Christmas cards, I’ve got a card using some of the products we have in the current Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue and Online Exclusives range.

I’m following the sketch at Just Add Ink Challenge JAI667, the 2 circles were formed using some of our specialty paper.

This was the first time I had used the base leaf die (not sure why) from the Christmas Pinecones and I really liked the look of layering the two dies together to create a fuller effect.

For the background I used several strips of Parakeet Party Cardstock. This is a great way to use up your scrap cardstock and they don’t even need to be the same width as I’ve done here. Having them at different widths can have visual appeal too.

Colour Combo Blog Hop – April 2020

Hello friends,

Well, this might be your 3rd stop by my blog in 24 hours. It has been a busy day in the crafting world! We are bringing sunshine to you no matter where you are right now. Welcome to Stamping Flair. It’s our Colour Combo Blog Hop and I’ve got a trio of cards to share with you. 

I’ve used the Witty-Cisms stamp set to create my cards and have combined all 3 of our colours – Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather and Gray Granite on each. By selecting Whisper White as my card base, I was able to vary the intensity of the colours according to the type of card.

Each of my cards use scrap Gray Granite cardstock cut into various widths which feature in some way and add interest to these cards. 

My first card is this cute baby card and gingham is such a great pattern for new born projects. The Ornate Floral Embossing Folder combined with some Purple Posy linen ribbon adds a softness which complements this card.

This graduation card has been kept simple with classic lines and some colouring in using Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends.

The last card, I think would suit a retirement. This too features the Gray Granite card scrap but you can see how effective it looks at that angle. The other half of the cardstock has been embossed with the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have been inspired by my cards to give the stamp set or perhaps the scraps technique a try. All products I have used are listed at the end of this post.  Next on the hop is Judith Postler. Please click on the Next button to visit her blog.
