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.

Monochromatic Orchid Oasis – Softly Sophisticated

As I started creating this card for the Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Instagram hop, I realised that I really hadn’t extensively used Orchid Oasis in it’s tenure as an In-Color. I’m glad I’ve got to spotlight it before it leaves us in a couple of months.

Every card has an idea that it starts with and for this one it was those little flowers from the Softly Sophisticated stamp set. These were stamped and fussy cut and although it took a little bit of time it was worth the effort. This stamp set is part of a bundle which is a Sale-A-Bration reward. You can get it free until 29th February with a $180 purchase.

For the background I blended ink through a mask and then stamped the words from the Quiet Meadow stamp set while the mask was in place.

Here’s how I created the splattered look behind the flowers.

FOCAL POSTAGE STAMP
  • Blend Orchid Oasis ink around the edges
  • Use a Water Painter to splatter Craft ink refill on the postage stamp, flicking the brush against the cap. The refill needs to be a little runny.
  • Using the Water Painter, add Craft ink around the edges of the die cut
  • Leave to completely dry
  • Stamp leaves and dots in Tuxedo Black ink

I added some ink blending on the matte layer which was embossed with the Softly Sophisticated Embossing Folder. This created depth against the card base.

I hope you have enjoyed what I have shared with you today. Please visit my Online Store to shop for these products and remember to order in multiples of $90 to ensure you get your free Sale-A-Bration rewards. If you would like me to place the order for you, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.

Monochromatic Pebbled Path – Stippled Roses

Happy Saturday friends, It’s early hours of the morning when this post goes Live in Melbourne. Thank you for stopping by to check out my inspiration for our Monochromatic Instagram hop this week. Although the hop is on Instagram I like to share the details of my card on my blog.

Today we are sharing projects using my favourite In-Color in our range at the moment, Pebbled Path. It’s not brown nor is it grey. It’s just right!

I have chosen the Stippled Roses bundle to create some detail on my card with some black accents.

The card sketch I’m following is from the Inspire Create Stamping Challenges #160.

Inspire Create Stamping Challenges #160, Card sketch, Card layout

I started by creating the 2 even panels. To create this, I stamped the large leaf from the Stippled Roses stamp set in Versamark ink onto Pebbled Path Cardstock. This was heat embossed in Black. Then I cut the Cardstock into 2 panels which were blended around the edges with Pebbled Path ink.

A ribbon was added at the back of the 2 panels to depict the strip on the card sketch.

On the base of the card I added a layer of the Softly Stippled Designer Series Paper. This Designer Series Paper is 12″x12″ and you get 12 doubled sided sheets in each pack (2 sheets of 6 designs). You can get this paper free with a $90 order during our Sale-A-Bration promotion which runs through 29th February.

I kept this card simple and elegant with a single rose stamped in Pebbled Path. I layered the flower and leaves, fussy cutting around them. Some additional die cut leaves in Pebbled Path were interspersed to layer on the flower and the die cut sentiment.

Monochromatic Moody Mauve – Cottage Wreaths

All set with about 3/4 sheet of A4 Moody Mauve Cardstock I was ready for this challenge! I had to get creative with ink today for the Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Insta Hop. I must say, I’ve been a bit moody with Moody Mauve. When I first saw it in the Annual Catalogue, I thought this would be my most used In-Color BUT it didn’t turn out that way. Hence the low supply of Cardstock.

Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Instahop - Moody Mauve

As I looked through my stamp sets, the idea of a Moody Mauve wreath really appealed to me and then I had to decide whether I wanted to stamp it or die cut it out of my 3/4 sheet of A4 Cardstock! Well, I did both and actually preferred the stamped version for this card.

Now I had to decide what was going to happen with that wreath and I went with a shimmer bow – a double one. Both were die cut from Bubble Bath Shimmer Cardstock. The bottom one was coloured with the Dark Moody Mauve Stampin’ Blend.

TIP: When colouring the Shimmer Cardstock with Stampin’ Blends hold it still with the Take Your Pick Tool. When you hold it with your fingers the colour keeps rubbing off. Leave it to dry and then it will be good to go.

MOODY MAUVE HEARTS
  • With a Water Painter and Moody Mauve ink refill, create a wash on Fluid 100 Cardstock
  • Add some darker sections as well
  • Leave to dry
  • Take the Painted Lavender stamp set and using the image with stems, ink up just the bottom part of the stems with Versamark ink
  • Stamp several of these lines randomly across the watercoloured Cardstock
  • Heat emboss in Silver
  • Die cut with heart from Cracker & Treat Box dies

I interspersed these hearts and some others die cut from Naturally Gilded Specialty DSP to add the silver highlights. A silver bow completes my Moody Mauve creation. I hope you have enjoyed it.

Full supply list can be found below this post along with an ordering special I have until 29th January.

Monochromatic Boho Blue – Softly Sophisticated

Hello and welcome to Boho Blue week. This is our weeky Instagram hop and I like to share the details of my project on my blog so you can recreate with the products I’ve used if it takes your fancy. Boho Blue is another one of my favourites. It’s a pretty and soft blue and quite calming. It’s part of our 2023-2025 In-Colors so I’m glad we’ve got another year with it.

Monochromatic Instahop, Crafty Collaborations, Boho Blue

For my main image I used the flowers from the Softly Sophisticated stamp set which is part of a stamp and embossing folder bundle. This bundle is a free earn during Sale-A-Bration with a $180 order.

Softly Sophisticated bunlde, Free with a $180 order during Sale-A-Bration 2024, Stampin' Up!

I die cut the image out using the Perennial Postage dies and matte it onto a large Boho Blue die cut. Behind this image I added a sprig of leaves from the Artistic dies. I cut the leaves apart so I could arrange them the way that suited the layout.

A strip of Boho Blue Cardstock behind the leaves was blended with Boho Blue ink to create a darker variegated tone.

On the base I added some Let’s go Fishing Designer Series Paper which has Boho Blue as well as some other blues which worked with the monochromatic theme.

To complete my card I added a vellum butterfly for a soft feature and embellished it with Boho Blue gems.
