New at su Blog Hop – Cottage Wreaths

Welcome to the New at SU Blog Hop where this month’s theme is Perfect Partners focusing on our amazing bundles. Until 30th September we have our Perfect Partners promotion with 6 die sets coordinating with stamp sets from the Annual and Mini Catalogues. Our blog hop will include a variety of bundles from our current catalogues.

I’ve chosen the Cottage Wreaths bundle. This is one of the bundles that will be featured in the free World Cardmaking Day event that is being organised by Stampin’ Up!

My colour palette has been inspired by the Global Design Project Challenge.

I die cut 2 base wreaths and an outline wreath from Basic White Cardstock. Then I blended Parakeet Party and Shaded Spruce ink over them with the top wreath inked only in Shaded Spruce. Some ‘snow’ was added with White Craft ink splattered with a Water Painter.

The bow and leaves were die cut from the Gingham Cottage DSP and I blended Flirty Flamingo ink over the die cut pieces. The banner was die cut from Sweetest Christmas DSP. I went over the Real Red stripes with the Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend and then blended Flirty Flamingo ink over to coordinate with the colour palette.

To complete the card ve layered the Shaded Spruce card base with a panel of Basic White Cardstock which I blended with Shaded Spruce ink.

Global Design Project #158 Best Route

Today I’m joining in the Global Design Project Sketch Challenge. It’s my first time participating in this challenge and I’ve had fun working with this sketch in mind.

I have steered away from the Christmas card theme which I’ve been on lately and created a travel theme card suitable for men.

The products I have used are mostly from the Best Route suite and I added Early Espresso and Crumb into the colour scheme. The Post Script background stamp added another element of travel for this card.

I used one of Memories & More cards in Blueberry Bushel to adhere to the Crumb Cake card base. This particular panel had a felt feel on the stripes. To get more usage out of this card, I punched out various shapes from the centre to use on the small circles as well as other projects. The punched out centre gets hidden behind the other panels and you get more mileage out of your card stock. The grid design paper is another card from the Memories & More card pack which I cut down to suit my project.
