Kylie’s International Blog Highlight – Tropical Thank You

Hi friends.

Lovely to have you visit me today. I’ve got a tropical themed Thank you card that I am going to share with you. It seems very apt to be making Thank you cards at this time. So many people who are serving, helping, assisting and being kind in an environment where we need it so much at the moment. It’s great to be able to participate in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight this month and you can view the gallery for more gratitude inspired projects.

Tropical Oasis handmade card with ukelele

I used the Tropical Oasis Memories & More card pack with the Partial Die Cutting technique to create the centrepiece with the ukelele. 

Partial Die Cutting

This involves fussy cutting around the leaves, ukelele (anything other than the circle). Then place the circle die over the image, lifting the fussy cut parts above the die so it doesn’t get cut in the process. Run this through the die cutting machine. I had to run it through twice because of the position of this image. This resulted in a nice circle instead of having to fussy cut around that.  Each image will vary. You can try this with various shapes and have a bit of fun.

The sentiment was stamped in the new Saddle Brown Stazon ink. This is such a warm colour which complements the Tropical Oasis suite. I couldn’t resist adding a quaver from the Music from the Heart stamp set to coordinate with the ukelele for a musical theme.

Kylie’s International Blog Highlight September – Daisy Encouragement

Kylie's International Blog HIghlightI’ve made an encouragement card today as part of Kylie Bertucci’s September International Blog Highlight. I’ve chosen neutral shades and the calming tones of Balmy Blue as my colour combination.

I stamped the bird in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, die cut it with the circle and coloured with Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. Then I created a mask by stamping the bird again on some scrap paper. I dabbed a bit of liquid glue on the back and left it to become tacky. Then I placed this over the the bird to use as a mask and stamped the leaves in Old Olive over the circle.

Using 2 circle dies (1 larger and 1 smaller than the Whisper White circle), I die cut a frame from Crumb Cake cardstock. This was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the embossed Balmy Blue panel.

Framed Bird coloured with Stampin' Blends

I stamped 3 daisies in Pretty Peacock ink, punched them out and sponged around to soften the edges. Several leaves were cut from the vellum sheet in the Magnolia Lane Memories and More cardpack and arranged under the flower. The ribbon has been secured with glue dots.
