AWOW Blog Hop – This or That Country Flowers

This or That? I wonder what you will pick in our challenge today? It’s the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop (AWOW for short) and this month we are sharing not just 1 but 2 projects with our This or That April challenge.

It could be different orientations of the same layout, perhaps different colours, alternate Designer Series Papers, different colouring mediums – the possibilities are endless. I’ve chosen the new Country Flowers bundle from the upcoming 2024-2025 Annual Catalogue for my This or That projects and went with varied interior decor styles.

We need YOU to participate today by commenting and letting us know whether you pick This or That!

THIS – SHABBY CHIC

For my first project I went with a shabby chic style with soft pinks and white. I used Watercolour Pencils to colour in my image.

Of course there had to be a doily in there for a beautiful country look. On top of that I added some Cardstock which I had treated with Embossing Paste I coloured with Pretty in Pink. First I applied a layer with a Palette Knife and then I added more paste through a mask. Once it dried I used my finger to dab on a little more ink over the panel. This was then torn to create a rustic look.

THAT – COASTAL

When I saw this particular background I immediately though of the beach. I’ve kept the layout the same as the previous card. Alternating the leaves for the flowers fit the coastal vibe and colours.

Along with the Country Woods Designer Series Paper, I’ve also used the new So Swirly Embossing Folder. Keep an eye out for this Embossing Folder in the new releases. It’s a large 6″ x 8 1/2″ (15.2 x 21.6 cm). I added the surfboard and life buoy from the Beach Day bundle for an extra beachy feel.

I will be recreating this particular card on my FB Live tonight at 7:30 AEST. Replay will also be available on YouTube later on today.

Now, it’s your turn to let me know what your favourite is. I can’t wait to hear your selection. As for me, I don’t know what my favourite is 😂 as I really enjoyed creating them both.

Thank you so much for stopping by my corner of the world in Melbourne. I hope you enjoy all the beautiful inspiration you are going to be treated to today as you travel Around the World with us.

Next on our hop is my friend Cheryll Miller and I know she will have something amazing to share with you.

Monochromatic Starry Sky – Rock & Roll

Happy Saturday friends, It’s lovely to be able to share with you my first card using the Rock Star bundle. I’m a fan of all music stamp sets so this particular suite was going to end up with me at some stage. I just got it in last week and I love all the fun options that are available with the stamps, dies, embellishments and the black and white Designer Series Paper. It’s a great guy set and those black and white papers are so versatile.

I followed the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #fms626 . I started by inking up my guitar in Tuxedo Black. Then I wiped back the neck end of the guitar with a paper towel and coloured the stamp with the Starry Sky Stampin’ Write Marker. I added any details that may have come off with the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker. Then I stamped and die cut the image. On top of this I stamped a texture image from the Of Art & Texture stamp set. This is part of our Online Exclusives range. I really love how this stamp added just that little bit of colour to the image.

For the background some Shimmery White Embossing Paste was coloured with Starry Sky ink refill before application. The shimmer is so much fun and adds to the rock star look of this card. I applied it fairly thick as I wanted a more uneven, textured look.

I die cut a circle using the Stylish Shapes dies and added some blending through a mask. This was cut in half to form the sketch. The guitar was added on top with a pick die cut from Silver Foil. To complete the card I added a heat embossed sentiment with a little star from the embellishments in the Rock & Roll suite.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely weekend and a long weekend if you are in Melbourne!

Monochromatic Parakeet Party – Gorgeously Made

The Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Instahop is all about bright Parakeet Party. As this colour comes to it’s end, I’m liking it a bit more. It was not quite my favourite due to it’s brightness but I have toned it down today and I really like how it turned out.

Using the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks, I blended a light background, moving the mask around. This created a very fluid pattern.

I used the mask again to apply the Shimmery White Embossing Paste which had been coloured with the ink refill. I applied quite a lot of this as I really wanted a thicker texture to offset against my white leaf. Embossing Paste provides a quick way to get some fun textured effects.

I die cut the leaf 3 times and layered it to create some lovely depth while also making it more sturdy.

Adding a neutral Gray Granite matte layer of Cardstock added a cool tone to the card and softened the colour along with the Linen Thread bow.

Do you love Parakeet Party? Make sure to add it to your stash before it leaves our collection along with all the 2022-2024 In-Colors. Adding these products to an order during Sale-A-Bration will qualify you for a free product when your order reaches $90.

Little Christmas – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

Merry Christmas! As we remember the birth of Jesus, may you enjoy the blessings of the season.

I’ve finally arrived at Day 30 of the #30DayChristmasCardmakingChallenge . Our theme today is Little Christmas and I’ve gone with smaller images and elements to create my card.

The small die cut squares were stamped with the stocking image from the Sending Cheer stamp set which had the small star images. This was repeated in a simple design.

The colours for my card have been inspired by the theme at Global Design Project #gdp426.

For the background I added Textured Paste through the Foursquare Mask for a delicate pattern. Small layered holly leaves in black and Pool Party add a finishing touch to this sweet and simple card.

I hope you have a very enjoyable day.

Thinking of You – Colour Palette #27

For the beautiful colours of Colour Palette #27 I went with the Earthen Textures bundle. I love being able to switch colours up with suites in the catalogue and give them a fresh look.

This card is quite minimalistic in that it has a lot of white space. I added some Embossing Paste for texture which creates a really pretty background for the simple vase and leaves.

Some added details such as a scalloped border creates extra layers and texture.

View the video below for all the details on how to create this card.
