Awow Blog hop – Let’s Take a Walk

Hello friend, Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday blog hop where every second Wednesday of the month we travel from New Zealand to Hawaii for some creative inspiration with our lovely team. This month’s theme is Let’s Take a Walk, so come with me for a walk and see where each of us stroll through.

Awow Blog Hop, Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop Header

I’m taking a walk down memory lane with my dear mum as my inspiration today. Back to the days where she is used to work in a radio broadcasting company called Back to the Bible Broadcast in Sri Lanka. She played the piano for the music department and she also corrected the English Bible correspondence courses there. I remember visiting her office many times and it was like one big family. As a child, all the adults were so kind and treated me like one of their own children and I still keep in touch with some of these people.

In my mum’s office she had a typewriter and my card has been inspired by that. Of course, the Just My Type stamp set was the perfect choice. This could be the reason I purchase every typewriter stamp set that comes out! Ironically, my father was a very speedy typist as well. At home, I remember mum typing letters on the old aerogramme paper and then she’d have carbon paper inbetween so she could keep a copy of it. Carbon paper – now that seems like a lifetime ago!

To create this card I watercoloured the background with Bubble Bath, Moody Mauve and Calypso Coral. The ink was left to pool heavier in certain areas as I wanted a deeper colouring. Moody Mauve, to my surprise, has been the colour I’ve used the least from our new In-Colours. I actually thought this would be my go-to but it hasn’t been like that. Using it extensively on this card may possibly be the turning of the corner for me with this colour.

Once the watercolouring was dry, I stamped some smaller flowers in Moody Mauve on top on the right side. Although the images blend in, I really like the faint images of the flowers you can still see in the background.

The note pad paper was scrunched up for a textured finish. The main flower was inked up in Bubble Bath and then I added some Moody Mauve with a Sponge Dauber in the centre.

To break up the pinks I added some Soft Sea Foam leaves. As this card is a memory of my time spent with my mum, I added the panel at the back which was embossed with the Merry Melody Embossing Folder to depict her musical talent.

I hope you have enjoyed taking this stroll with me as I reminisced and shared with you a little bit about my family. Please follow our hop through for fabulous inspiration from our team. As you go through we would love for you to drop us a comment as we love hearing from you.

Next on our hop is Cheryll Miller. Hop along with me to see her beautiful creation.

When I think of children I always think of how much fun they love to have and especially at birthdays and Christmas – it’s always fun to have a surprise. So with that in mind, I made a Pull Tab Slider Card. This has a secret message, moving element, some glitter and a cute balloon bearing bird. Not just suitable for a child, I think any adult may love to receive this fun card too!

Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop, Awow Blog Hop, August 2023, Sweet Songbirds, Stampin' Up!, SU, Pull Tab Slider Card, Birthday card for child, Kids birthday

To create the balloons, I inked up the image from the Celebrate with Tags stamp set and then pounced a Stampin’ Write Marker in a contrast colour. After this I spritzed the stamp and stamped on Fluid 100 Cardstock to create the watercoloured balloons.

I added a secret message under the slider section which was decorated with party images from the Taco Fiesta stamp set. The sweet bird flies through with a bunch of balloons to reveal the Happy Birthday.

I will be creating a video to show how to create this card, which will be uploaded this weekend. Subscribe to my YouTube Channel to be notified when new videos are posted.

Thank you for stopping by and I’d love for you to leave me a comment as you pass through to see what my friend Cheryll Miller has created today.

2022 Crafty Collaborations July – December Mini Catalogue Blog Hop

Welcome to the Crafty Collaborations Blog Hop to welcome in our New Mini Catalogue. I’m from Melbourne, Australia and I’m so glad that you have visited me today. I’ve done some mixing and matching for my creation today using products from our Mini and Annual Catalogue (which is just a couple of months in).

I’ve used the Splendid Day Designer Series Papers and Splendid Stems Dies with the fun bird from the Sweet Songbirds bundle.

I just love blending – aren’t out BlendingBrushes THE BEST? So …. I blended Pool Party and Granny Apple Green ink onto Basic White Cardstock and die cut it using the leaf dies. I used some inlays from the smaller leaf to embellish around the bird.

The nest was heat embossed in Copper and die cut with the semi-circle die. The elegance of the specialty Designer Series Paper makes this a cute baby card or a wedding card.

Sweet Songbirds for Sunday Stamps ssc286

I’ve got a sweet card for you today with the Sweet Songbirds bundle. I used both sets of Stampin’ Up! watercolours to colour the Perfectly Penciled DSP and blended them with the Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter. The colours I used were Granny Apple Green, Old Olive Garden Green, Coastal Cabana, Basic Gray and White.

I’ve been creating quite a few of these bird cards for a team challenge so I wanted to try a different look and went with a Kraft bird. The natural tone looks nice against the Balmy Blue from the Awash in Beauty Designer Series Paper. Some fussy cut leaves were added for the bird to perch on.
