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.

Just a Note Card- Inked & Tiled

I’ve got a pretty floral card today using the Inked & Tiled stamp set. I’ve stamped the image in some bright colours and I really liked the colour combo on this.

The card itself is quite simple in design. I’ve used the Radiating Stitches dies which are an out of catalogue product and you can find it in our Online Store.

To step it up I added some layering behind the sentiment including a border created from some shells in the Seaside Bay dies. You can find a list of products to create this card at the bottom of this post. If you want any other information, please get in touch with me. Products can be mailed anywhere in Australia.

Stay tuned for some fabulous offers coming your way tomorrow.

Easy Watercolouring Technique – Inked & Tiled Stamp Set

This card was inspired by a card I saw one of the Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team members create. I loved the colours and the watercolour effect on it.

This is a really fun and easy technique to replicate and creates beautiful results. Using Stampin’ Write Markers I coloured directly on the stamp. As these markers are water based, the stamp will easily clean off after this process. Huff on the stamp with your breath to activate the ink and stamp the image on the label.

Spritzing the label lightly with water before and after stamping gives the image the watercoloured look.

The striped Pebbled Path Designer Series Paper provides a neutral background to bring out the beauty of these flowers. Did you know we have standard packs of 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Papers in each of our colour ranges?

161646 2023-2025 In-Color Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up!

Each pack has the same 4 patterns. So a total of 50 colours to coordinate with any project. These are particularly great for when you want something to tone in and not too busy yet with a bit of a pattern.

If you would like to create this card you can contact me for details and I’d be happy to help you.

Colour Combo Blog Hop – May 2020


Welcome to my blog on this Mother’s Day. I hope you are enjoying your day, celebrating in whatever capacity you can. I am enjoying my day with my daughter Cassidy who has made some lovely scrolls this afternoon and is also preparing dinner for me tonight. Can’t wait! It’s nice to be spoiled isn’t it?

As it’s Mother’s Day, I chose the Music from the Heart stamp set in remembrance of my mother who used to be a music teacher and conducted choirs.  I would have given this card to her with a Mother’s Day sentiment instead of the one I’ve chosen and I know she would have loved it.

I watercoloured the images from the Free as a Bird stamp set and fussy cut them. Then I arranged these together with some flowers from the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit and copper leaves from the Flourish Dies.  I just love the felt embellishments in the embellishment kit as they add so much texture to a project. 

For the final touch, I stamped the keyboard in Gorgeous Grape and fussy cut it, laying it on top for my musical themed , bird song card..

I hope you have enjoyed my project and if you have been inspired by it, I would love for you to leave a comment. All the products I have used on this project are listed at the bottom of this post. Several of these items are on the retiring list so you are going to have to hurry so you don’t miss out.
