Crafty Challenge Blog Hop – By the Bay Sympathy Card

Hello and welcome to the Crafty Collaborations Crafty Challenge Blog Hop. Today’s challenge is a dice throw and we had to use each of the sides facing up.

I combined this with a Colour Palette challenge I have weekly on my FB page. This colour palette had Tahitian Tide which is an In-Color for just one more day. It retires at the end of today. I felt all the elements would blend well to create a beautiful sympathy card.

The bird was coloured in Watercolour Pencils and added to a tag die cut from the Tailor Made Tags. These dies are retiring and are one of my must-have dies. They are so handy to have whether you create tags or use it as part of another project. .

I used a blender pen to colour in the bottom of the die cut shells from the Seaside Bay dies with Tahitian Tide ink. As for the other colour that came through on the shell – I think there may have been some residue of another ink on my Blender Pen. It worked out well and I love the shading. To colour in the top part of the shell, I inked up the large crab with Tahitian Tide ink and stamped the body over the shell. This gave the shell a mottled appearance.

Some Tahitian Tide In-Color Pearls were added to embellish my card. I like the soft colours of this card with the white space around which brings a sense of calm and works well for a sympathy card.

I hope you have been inspired by this card and I encourage you to create something with this dice throw. Please follow our hop through for more inspiration.

Crafty Collaborations Blog Hop – Easter Lillies

Welcome to a Easter blog hop with the Crafty Collaborations team. I’ve chosen the beautiful Easter Lillies bundle for my card today.

I love the sentiments in this stamp set which convey the message of Easter. The stamps and dies can be used individually or together to create beautiful floral features.

I started out by die cutting the pieces of the flower from Basic White Cardsttock. Each petal was coloured with Melon Mambo ink using a Blending Brush and he centre was coloured with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. For the stamen I used Pecan Pie and Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Markers. Each individual petal was curled with a bone folder before being assembled with a combination of Stampin’ Dimensionals and glue.

On the bottom layer of White Cardstock I added some ink blending through a mask. This layer was then embossed with the Timber Embossing Folder and although not a lot of it is visible, together with the distressed edges, it adds texture. The second layer of White Cardstock was embossed with the Timeworn Type Embossing Folder.

The Polka Dot ribbon was cut in half lengthways to create 2 narrow lengths from I tied a double bow. I used a bone folder to curl the tails of the bow which just added such a beautiful finish to it.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today and I hope you have got some ideas to use on your next project. Please follow our blog hop as we share more inspiration with you.

Crafty Collaborations 2023 Mini Catalogue Blog Hop

Welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne. Today, I’m taking party in the Crafty Collaborations Blog Hop and we are showcasing products from our new Mini Catalogue which launched on the 5th of January.

Coming from a musical family, the Enjoy the Rhythm stamp set was a ‘must have’ for me. There are so many fun musical images which can be coloured in and matched with the range of sentiments. My favourite – Treblemaker!

I coloured the drum set in a range of Watercolour Pencils – Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Basic Gray. I used the backing of the of the cling stamp as a mask, and stamped the stave of notes around the image in Bermuda Bay ink then blended Pale Papaya ink around the circle.

My colour palette has been inspired by the Colour Inkspiration colour challenge #135.

Some Pale Papaya ink was blended at the bottom of the card base to add depth. Around the tag I coloured the edge with the Calypso Coral Watercolour Pencil to create a simple border to coordinate.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today and I hope you have been inspired to consider adding the Enjoy the Rhythm stamp set to your Wish List. Full list of products are at the bottom of this post. During our Sale-A-Bration promotion which runs through 28th February all orders of $90 will qualify to earn a FREE Sale-A-Bration product.

2022 Crafty Collaborations July – December Mini Catalogue Blog Hop

Welcome to the Crafty Collaborations Blog Hop to welcome in our New Mini Catalogue. I’m from Melbourne, Australia and I’m so glad that you have visited me today. I’ve done some mixing and matching for my creation today using products from our Mini and Annual Catalogue (which is just a couple of months in).

I’ve used the Splendid Day Designer Series Papers and Splendid Stems Dies with the fun bird from the Sweet Songbirds bundle.

I just love blending – aren’t out BlendingBrushes THE BEST? So …. I blended Pool Party and Granny Apple Green ink onto Basic White Cardstock and die cut it using the leaf dies. I used some inlays from the smaller leaf to embellish around the bird.

The nest was heat embossed in Copper and die cut with the semi-circle die. The elegance of the specialty Designer Series Paper makes this a cute baby card or a wedding card.
