Waves of Inspiration for #GDP442

Inspiration can come to us from anywhere and the inspiration for this card began with a scrap piece of stamping where I was just trying out some colours. This scrap looked so good that I wanted to recreate it for a card and the background of this project came to be.

I used the smooshed image from the Perched in a Tree stamp set and inked it up with Fresh Freesia ink. Then I spritzed the stamp with water before stamping. This created a watercoloured look. I repeated this a few times. As I was using Basic White Carstock I was careful not to oversaturate the image, yet keeping the fluidity of it.

I’ve followed the sketch at Global Design Project #gdp422.

The pelican was stamped in Early Espresso ink and I added a hint of shading with Crushed Curry and Gorgeous Grape Watercolour Pencils. The lovely large leaf in the centre is from the new Thoughtful Wishes dies. It was perfect for sitting across the card so I could add the pelican on top of it.

Some additional pieces of DSP and a heat embossed sentiment complete this card. The Waves of Inspiration stamp and coordinating dies and the Perched in a Tree stamp set are all retiring on the 30th of April. Get your favourite products before they leave.

Monochromatic Sweet Sorbet – Stippled Roses

Sweet Sorbet is one of my favourite In-Colors from the 2022-2024 range. It’s just a nice red with a hint of pink in it. For my card I tossed up with a couple of stamp sets and just couldn’t go past the Stippled Roses bundle.

The floral image was stamped once in black and once in Sweet Sorbet. Then I fussy cut and layered the flowers. The entire image was layered onto 2 black die cuts of the floral image which were slightly offset from the main image so it created a shadow effect.

The roses look so lovely in Sweet Sorbet and when they are layered they come up so well. A bold image of sun rays in the back really sets off those flowers.

I continued the layering on the sentiment with 2 die cut borders from the Gorgeously Made dies. Offsetting these created a pretty effect. I added some extra detail on the sentiment by using a bit of leftover stamped cardstock from my background.

Quick Make Trio of Hearts Card

I’ve got a very quick card for you today which you can make in minutes using the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper

Easy to Make Sale-A-Bration 2020 Coordination Product DSP

This 12″X12″ DSP coordinates with the following punches.

  • Heart Punch pack
  • Tulip Builder Punch
  • Umbrella Builder Punch
  • Small Blooms Punch

It’s available until 31st March or while stocks last so you’ll want to get in quick for this pretty pack of paper. 

Simply punch out 3 hearts from the DSP using the plain heart from the Heart Punch pack and adhere them to the bottom of your Whisper White layer. Attach a piece of Bermuda Bay ribbon across the top using Tear n’ Tape. Then wrap the Linen Thread 3 times around this layer. I tied the bow separately and attached it with a glue dot. 

The sentiment was stamped in Shimmer Black Embossing Powder on Coastal Cabana cardstock. I love how this shines and the black accents the sentiment.

Kre8tors Blog Hop – Green Monochromatic

Hi stampers,

It’s great to have you stop by today. If you are following the hop, you will probably be coming from seeing Anastasia’s lovely project. If I’m your first stop, please go through all the blogs as we all have some great inspiration for this blog hop with an interesting theme of Green Monochromatic.

Kre8tors Blog Hop August Color Challenge

In Stampin’ Up! we are spoiled with the range of colours we have to work with and for this challenge there was an abundance of greens to choose from. This is the green palette I chose. 

The first image I had was a ladies pretty dress and I chose the Wonderful Moments stamp set as it was one of the more recent sets I had got and I was keen to get it inked up.

I started off by stamping the little flowers from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. This is a Sale-A-Bration stamp set which can be earned free with a $90 order. 

I stamped the lady over the flowers as I felt this looked more natural than trying to stamp the flowers on top of the dress. I then coloured the dress with Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends. For the final touch, I added some sparkle from the Wink of Stella brush all over the skirt. It just makes this skirt look so pretty and sparkly. My 16 year old daughter, Cassidy, saw it and said she’d love to wear a dress like this.

The Garden Lane Designer Series Paper was a late addition and I think it is perfect for this hop with all the green hues in it. I die cut the panels with the Stitched Rectangle dies. For the Whisper White embossed panel, I extended the die by partially die cutting and then turning and realigning to cut the rest of the panel. This gives me a longer panel than the actual die size.

The additional flowers are from one of my favourites in the Mini Catalogue – the Botanical Prints Product Medley. I coloured and die cut 2 of the bouquets, cutting one in sections to fit over the sentiment. This would make a lovely graduation card.

I hope you have been inspired by my card to try out some monochromatic projects and would love for you to leave me a comment. All products I have used on this card are listed at the bottom of this post. If you live in Australia and don’t have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I would love the opportunity to help you along your creative journey.
