Crafty Collaborations Technique Tuesday Blog Hop – Masking

Crafty Collaborations Technique Tuesday Blog Hop Header

Welcome to Technique Tuesday Blog Hop where we are sharing Masking Techniques with you. Don’t get confused by the title of this blog hop, it is indeed early hours of Wednesday morning in Melbourne!

There are so many Masking Techniques and I’m sure you are going to see a lovely variety through our hop today. I’ve chosen to use our Artistic Decorative Masks for my project. Masks (or stencils) are a great way to add depth without adding bulk to a project.

To create this background, I ink blended a Basic White Cardstock panel with Flirty Flamingo, Parakeet Party and Balmy Blue. Then I laid the mask over and reapplied the same colours through the mask which created this fun background.

This is a bit of a ‘twist’ for a Valentine’s Day card which you could make for next week using the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set. Take your pick of Cocktails, Cookies or Chocolates and add the coordinating images for a cute card.

I die cut the word ‘cocktails’ 3 times from White Cardstock gluing them all together. Then I die cut another from Black Cardstock gluing it slightly offset to form a shadow effect.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I hope this gives you inspiration for creating with Masks. Please follow the hop through for more fun ideas.

New at SU Blog Hop – Love & Hearts

It’s time for our New at SU Blog Hop and we are bringing to you lots of love and hearts in time for Valentine’s Day next month or perhaps any other ‘hearty’ occasion.

New at SU Blog Hop, Header

I’ve used the Always in my Heart bundle and the Forever & Always bundle on this card. The entire Love you Always suite is a bumper suite with heaps of beautiful products. The foil is gorgeous and the black and white True Love DSP is a must have from this catalogue.

Always in My Heart, 2021 Mini Catalogue, Foil Hearts

I used a Smoky Slate card base to bring out the beauty of the DSP. The heart from the Floral Hearts Dies, die cuts the beautiful filigree heart and also die cuts the centre heart so you get 2 hearts at the same time. I die cut a second set from Basic White cardstock and stamped my sentiment on it.

I kept the card sketch simple to let the foil heart stand out as it’s just such lovely delicate look. This sentiment is perfect to celebrate a Wedding Anniversary.

Stamp ‘n Hop – Sale-A-Bration/Mini Catalogue

Hello and welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne. I’m blog hopping with other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and we are creating mainly with brand new products from the January – June Mini Catalogue and the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.

Sale-A-Bration is a very exciting time for us crafters because it means we can add more stash for FREE into our craft collections! Any order over $90 which you place until the 28th February will earn you a free product from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue. So the more you buy, the more free products you earn. Exciting right?

I’ve chosen to work with the gorgeous Forever and Always bundle and give a twist on the colours which are part of this suite. I absolutely love the entire suite and the colours are so me. Pink and natural colours … so good. However, I like to try some different colours. The black and white colour combination of the True Love Designer Series Paper is so striking and can work with so many colours and projects.

The flowers from the Forever and Always stamp set are just so beautiful and they don’t even need to be coloured in to create a lovely focal point.

I hope this project inspires you to get in the craft room and get creative. Thank you so much for stopping by and please continue the hop by visiting the talented Laura Mackie by clicking on the Next Blog button.

Kre8tors Blog Hop August 2020 – Anniversary

Hi and welcome to Stamping Flair and the monthly Kre8tors Blog Hop. I’m a little bit sad because it’s the last time we’ll be hopping together for the time being. Thank you to Melissa Tennison who has worked so hard putting this blog hop together each month. I’ve had so much fun being a part of it. 

Kre8tors Blog Hop August Color Challenge

However, we still have all the fun of this month. So make sure you check out all the blogs for lots of inspiration. Our theme is anniversaries. Usually I would create a floral, feminine card but this time I created more with my partner in mind. So my card took on a more masculine feel. 

I started by sponging Granny Apple Green and Misty Moonlight along the bottom of the Whisper White cardstock panel. Then I embossed it with the Tasteful Textile embossing folder. Taking my Versamark ink pad, I roughly ran it down the ends of the cardstock and poured the Gold Embossing Powder over it. I brushed off any excess to achieve a streaky look then heat embossed it. 

The sentiment is the die from the Love You More set and it actually says ‘Love you more than’. I just used the words ‘ Love you’ which I die cut from the Rainbow Glimmer Paper

I hope you have been inspired by my creation. Please leave me a comment as I would love to hear from you. Next on our hop is Annette Elias. Click on the Next button to see her lovely project.

Stamp n’ Hop – Favourite Bundle

Hi,

Welcome to Stamping Flair on this Saturday morning. It’s a weekend like no other here in Melbourne, where we are in lock down but us crafters need not fear boredom. We have supplies and unfinished projects to last a lifetime! I hope you are all keeping well and in good spirits. You are in the right place to get you into creative mode.

Today I’m hopping with my friends from the Stamp ‘N Hop team and we are showcasing our favourite bundle. Now this one was a tough choice as there are so many beautiful bundles available in the Annual Catalogue as well as the Mini Holiday Catalogue.Stamp n' Hop, August 2020, Favourite Bundle

I chose the Forever Fern bundle for it’s versatility to offer quick and simple cards which look really beautiful. This bundle is perfect for the beginner stamper as it offers the capacity to step-up your projects as you become more comfortable with stamping. For the Advanced crafter, the coordinating dies offer you additional leaves and elements to add more pizzazz to your projects. 

Stamp N' Hop, Favourite Bundle, Forever Greenery, Gold Lasercut paper

I added the beautiful Gold Laser cut paper which is part of the Forever Greenery Suite. A poppy from the Painted Poppies stamp set, coloured in Flirty Flamingo, adds a soft contrast to the shades of green on this card. Die cut leaves in Sahara Sand and Soft Sea Foam coordinate with that beautiful Designer Series Paper. 

Join me this afternoon on my Facebook Live where I’ll show you how to create this card and give you some fun tips and techniques. All the products I have used on this card are listed at the bottom of this post.  Thank you for visiting me today. I hope you have enjoyed my project and I would love for you to leave me a comment.
