Create a Gingham Pattern – Cheerful Daisies

Ah, Gingham – I just couldn’t resist the challenge over at Just Add Ink Challenges. It’s a Choose Two challenge from Flowers, Ginham and splatters but I picked them all. I’ve used the colours from TGIF Challenges as inspiration for this project.

The first element I created for this card was the gingham background using the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks. I blended Coastal Cabana and Lost Lagoon over the mask. When I create a background I generally create it on a quarter sheet of A4 Cardstock then cut it down to whatever size I need it. Any spare can be used to decorate the inside of your card and envelope or or another project.

I added some extra lines within the checks with a Coastal Cabana and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker. This month the Stampin’ Up! Creative Challege is to use Stampin’ Write Markers in a creative way. Our Markers are water based and there are many techniques and fun to be had with them. Join in the challenge and check out the inspiration at #creativechallengesu

I trimmed the gingham background and die cut the top with the Deckled Rectangles dies for a decorative border. Then I added a little strip of White Cardstock which was embossed with the Splatters (Stripes & Splatters) Embossing Folder. I inked up the Embossing Folder with Coastal Cabana and then ran it through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. This filled in the colour in the gaps.

The daisies and leaves were die cut from Fluid 100 Carsdtock and watercoloured using ink refills. At first, I wanted to create some soft coloured daises but then went for the bolder colours and really loved the contrast. These daisies almost have a tie-dye look to them.

A White heat embossed sentiment die cut with the label from the Cheerful Daisies dies really pops against the pretty summery colours of this card.

If you live in Australia, you can order these products in my Online Store or contact me to place an order. I hope you have been inspired with what I have shared and try out this fun technique using Stampin’ Write Markers.

Love & Warmth – Horse & Sleigh Bundle

Over the past few days I had the pleasure of presenting at the Great International Craft Show Series 17 – GICS17 for short. This is an online crafting event which encompasses all types of craft and the Live event is free to attend. I conducted a class a day which was loads of fun. There was a Christmas theme and I had just received my One Horse Open Sleigh suite so it was just ideal for this event.

This suite is part of our Online Exclusives products and the entire range can be viewed in our Online Store. We’ve got lots of stamps, dies, papers, embellishments and kits to suit everyone. I’ve had some fun creating with this particular suite and I particularly love the horse & sleigh image. It’s just reminiscent of images you see in storybooks and Christmas cards.

I’ve followed along with the layout at Freshly Made Sketches #FMS594.

Although this image is great for colouring, I set out to create a card for those who may not like colouring so much. With some paper piecing the sleigh just came to life. Paper Piecing is such a simple and effective technique pretty much taking us back to Primary School days of cutting and pasting.

Watch the video below to see how I created this card, sharing some tips to help you along the way.

Glitz it with Gilded Leafing

Over the past few weeks I’ve been sharing colour palette inspiration on my FB page and through my newsletter. This week we have this rich range of colours to work with.

On last night’s Live I shared a card using this gorgeous palette. This design used up some of my scraps too.

I also showed how to use the Gilded Leafing which added a lovely opulent border to this card. Watch the video tutorial for tips on using this product. Don’t forget to like and subscribe to my YouTube Channel for more inspiration.

Awow Blog Hop – Embossing Technique

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

Hello and welcome to my little corner of the world in Melbourne, Australia. Great to have you here for our monthly, Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop. If you are stopping by from my friend Leonie Stuart’s blog, I’m sure you would have been inspired by her beautiful take on an Embossing Technique.

For my card, I started off with a heat embossed border using the Decorative Borders stamp set. Over the White embossing I blended Pear Pizzazz, Soft Succulent and Parakeet Party inks which created the embossing resist technique. I added a bit more blending in Coastal Cabana on the top part of the Stitched Rectangle panel.

Using the Stamparatus to position my Butterfly Brilliance stamp, I heat embossed the large butterfly in White. Then I coloured it in Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay Watercolour Pencils. I used a Stampin’ Blend Color Lifted to blend sections of the colours.

On the card base I layered a piece of Vellum Basics and a layer of Basic White Cardstock embossed with the Hive Embossing Folder. Currently you can get this embossing folder free with a $90 order during Sale-A-Bration.

Inbetween the layers I also added some strips of Textured Shimmer Paper which adds a beautiful subtle textured look.

A wave die cut from Shimmer Vellum and some coordinating ribbon and Opal Dots complete my card with … a bit more embossing for the sentiment.

I hope you have enjoyed my embossing inspiration and give one of these techniques a try. Please get in touch with me if you have any questions. Don’t forget to follow our hop through for lots of beautiful creations and please leave us a comment as you stop by.

Next on our hop is the very talented Cheryll Miller.
