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.

Sketchtember Challenge – Day 4 Best Dad

Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful Dads in our world. It’s nice to have a day set aside to honour these special men in our lives and to also remember those who are no longer with us. Of course, my Sketchtember Challenge card for Day 4 had to be a Father’s Day card.

If it’s your first time visiting my blog, the Sketchtember challenge is my way of celebrating my birthday month with a sketch challenge each day of September. So please join in #sketchtemberchallenge

I’m also joining in with the Just Add Ink Challenge #619 which is a masculine theme and fit perfectly for today.

I was inspired by Susan Wong’s demonstration at the Crafty Carrot Co. to alter the colour of this DSP. I’ve used Bermuda Bay ink, blending it around the sides with a Blending Brush. This theme of the beach and surfboard was picked with my partner Adrian in mind. He loves the water and is very much an outdoors guy. I always find it easier to create a card when I have a person in mind I’m making it for – it’s the personal touch which you sure don’t get from a store bought card.

I used elements from the He’s the Man die cuts which are part of the Designer Series Paper. To tone the campvervan in with the background, I coloured the original image, which was Mint Macaron, with a Coastal Cabana Watercolour Pencil and added some shading with Basic Gray. The centre portion was coloured in Balmy Blue. I added Daffodil Delight with Calypso Coral highlights in the window to match the scene behind.

The tree stamps were coloured with Stampin’ Write Markers and then stamped. I used 2 shades of colours to highlight the trunk and leaves of the trees.

At the bottom of the die cut circle is another element from the DSP pack which was the torn edge strip. I added this to the bottom of my stamped piece of Cardstock and die cut the circle. Some Daffodil Delight and Pale Papaya were blended around the trees.

I’ve had fun creating this brighter look with the Hes the Man DSP and I love the way it works with the Paradise Palms stamp set too.

I hope you enjoy your day with your loved ones and have a wonderful week ahead.

It’s my birthday month and with every $50 you spend or every class you order during September, your name will be entered in the drawing to win a hamper valued at $200 from me. Winner will be drawn on 2nd October.
