Monochromatic Coastal Cabana – Country Birdhouse Slimline Card

Coastal Cabana from the Stampin’ Up! Brights range is a favourite of mine. It’s such a beautiful cool blue that works well with many colours. For our Monochromatic Insta Hop this week, I’ve paired Coastal Cabana with Crumb Cake as my neutral.

The large birdhouse from the Country Birdhouse bundle fit well on a slimline card. The card base measures 20 cm x 20 cm, scored in half .

I die cut the pieces of the birdhouse from Cardstock and the centre from Country Woods DSP. The main part of the house was embossed with the Timber Embossing Folder. Then I blended Crumb Cake and Coastal Cabana ink over it for a coastal wood look.

The bird was coloured with Coastal Cabana and Early Espresso Watercolour Pencils. Around it I added some flowers which were die cut from Fluid 100 Cardstock which had been painted with Coastal Cabana ink refill.

I was tossing up whether to leave the white matte layer blank and decided that it needed something a little softer to break it up. I added a panel of Country Lace Designer Series Paper at the bottom which added a subtle design and broke up the stark white background.

The centre border of White Cardstock was embossed with the Eyelet Embossing Folder and the ribbon added to the natural look I was going for with this card. This little addition just added the perfect touch to this card. The Tinsel Gems are just beautiful and on this card they look like water droplets sprinkling around the birdhouse.

Magnolia Mood – Colour Palette #49

Inspired by Colour Palette #49 I’ve created today’s card which uses the Magnolia Mood bundle from our Oneline Exclusives range. If you follow me on Facebook, you will know that I share a new colour palette each Monday for inspiration. You can share what you create using these palettes on my page under the image.

The Magnolia Mood bundle comes with a stamp set and dies which cut out the stamped images as well as individual magnolia dies. I’ve used these individual images as the focal point on my card.

For the Starry Sky element, I blended some Starry Sky ink on a die cut label from the All That dies. These dies are retiring and can be purchased for just $24.50 in our Last Chance sale. Original price was $49. I just love all the unique little dies that come in this set.

Colouring the image with Watercolour Pencils I was able to achieve some beautiful colour variation on the flowers and leaves.

I’m following the sketch at Just Add Ink Challenges #697with the smaller flower making up the little hexagon on the right.

I heat embossed my sentiment in Black to make it stand out against those beautiful colours.

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my card. For more inspiration, join me tonight at 7:30pm for my weekly Live on my Facebook Page.

Awow Blog Hop – Favourite Colours

What a fun challenge we have for our Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop this month. To be fair, I think I say that every month but… this month, it’s more in-house with us playing along to our team’s favourite colours.

If you are new to this hop, we are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators sharing our love for papercrafting on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. So sit back and enjoy your trip around the world.

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

Each of our team had to nominate our favourite colour and this is what our beautiful leader, Angie Mckenzie has put together. Don’t all the colours look so beautiful together?

So our project had to include at least three of these colours. We could choose from Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Mint Macaron, Soft Sea Foam, Pale Papaya, Petal Pink, Rich Razzleberry, and Starry Sky.

Can you guess who picked which colour I picked?!? I’d have to guess too because I can’t remember! It would be a very close tie between Pool Party and Coastal Cabana and depending on my mood on the day it fluctuates. So I used them both on my project. In fact, I was able to incorporate quite a number while colouring this image.

I chose the In the Moment stamp set as today is International Women’s Day. This set has 3 images of women and is great for colouring in.

I started off by colouring the dress in Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends with some added detail using the Early Espresso Watercolour Pencil. The hat and belt were coloured in Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends. The bench was coloured with some Natural Tone and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends with added details using Watercolour Pencils.

I die cut the image using the Stylish Shapes circle die then fussy cut around the girl. A second circle was die cut, on which I blended Pool Party ink with a Blending Brush. The image was then mounted on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wanted to create a little beachy atmosphere on my card so I added the clouds and palm leaves which were die cut from Soft Sea Foam Cardstock, Then I blended Bermuda Bay ink to add some gradation to it.

I used our new Irresistible Blooms stamp set to heat emboss the flower on Shimmery White Cardstock. Then I watercoloured it in Rich Razzleberry ink. I fussy cut the flower and layered it to create depth. This coordinated with my Rich Razzleberry wine glass coloured with Watercolour Pencils. I love being able to mix and match our various colouring mediums.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my little corner of the world. I hope you have been inspired by what I have shared. The products I have used are available in my Online Store and are listed at the bottom of this post. If I can help you with anything, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.

Next on our hop is my friend Cazz Boylan. Please follow through to see her beautiful project.

Some Bunny Loves You

Oh what fun I’ve had creating this card using the cute Easter Bunny stamp set. I just got it in my latest Stampin’ Up! delivery and it’s the first time I’m playing with it.

I stamped the bunny in Sahara Sand and then coloured with Watercolor Pencils. For the body I used Crushed Curry with Early Espresso and Basic Gray adding some highlights and shadows. I added some Rich Razzleberry for a pink tint on her cheeks, ears and feet.

I stamped and coloured the left side of the body a second time. Fussy cutting and layering on top of the heart which had some Stampin’ Dimensionals under to pop it up, makes it look like the bunny is gifting a heart in keeping with our Love theme for the Global Design Project Challenge GDP379.

The soft floral Designer Series Paper added a lovely touch for this cute bunny card which uses the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches FMS571.

Although I’ve only used the stamp set for this card, this set also has a coordinating punch which you will want to order together to get the most out of this bundle and you also save 10% on the price. I’ve added the link below in the Product List. When your order reaches $90 you will qualify for a Sale-A-Bration reward plus my February tutorial bundle with 44 tutorials.

Crafty Collaborations 2023 Mini Catalogue Blog Hop

Welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne. Today, I’m taking party in the Crafty Collaborations Blog Hop and we are showcasing products from our new Mini Catalogue which launched on the 5th of January.

Coming from a musical family, the Enjoy the Rhythm stamp set was a ‘must have’ for me. There are so many fun musical images which can be coloured in and matched with the range of sentiments. My favourite – Treblemaker!

I coloured the drum set in a range of Watercolour Pencils – Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Basic Gray. I used the backing of the of the cling stamp as a mask, and stamped the stave of notes around the image in Bermuda Bay ink then blended Pale Papaya ink around the circle.

My colour palette has been inspired by the Colour Inkspiration colour challenge #135.

Some Pale Papaya ink was blended at the bottom of the card base to add depth. Around the tag I coloured the edge with the Calypso Coral Watercolour Pencil to create a simple border to coordinate.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today and I hope you have been inspired to consider adding the Enjoy the Rhythm stamp set to your Wish List. Full list of products are at the bottom of this post. During our Sale-A-Bration promotion which runs through 28th February all orders of $90 will qualify to earn a FREE Sale-A-Bration product.
