Kre8tors Blog Hop – Spring

Hello and welcome to our Kre8tors Blog Hop this month. I am a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Melbourne, Australia. We have just finished Easter, however where you are, you still may be celebrating this wonderful occasion. I hope you have a lovely day. 

Kre8tors Blog Hop August Color Challenge

Our theme this month is Spring. In Melbourne we are getting into chilly Autumn right now so I drew on some bright and cheery colours as we need all the cheering up we can get at the moment. The Best Dressed Designer Series Paper has some fun colour choices as well as some pretty, fahion-inspired patterns.

Both these cards use the same measurements and a very simple layout. I used the flowers from the Easter Promise stamp set to create my focal image for the Lovely Lipstick card. I have used Stampin’ Blends to colour it in. If you haven’t tried Stampin’ Blends, I encourage you to give it a try. This is such a simple colouring tool to use and blending is very easy. A ribbon bow, sentiment and a quick card completed.

I created the same card with different paper and the Dressed to Impress stamp set and it just changes the look.  So how do high heel shoes and handbags tie in with the Spring theme? I thought of the Spring racing carnival in Melbourne where women love to dress up so that was my inspiration for this card. The sentiment is from the Label me Bold stamp set. I’ve been using this set increasingly as it has sentiments to suit different occasions and some nice background-style images.

Thank you for checking out my cards today. I hope you give these quick make cards a try and look forward to seeing you back soon. Click on the Next button to see what Annette Ball has in store for you.

Ink. Stamp. Share Special Blog Hop – Anything Goes

Hi friend,

Thanks for stopping by Stamping Flair today. I’m so pleased that you can join me for this special edition of the Ink. Stamp. Share blog hop. So why an extra blog hop? With many in isolation and not being able to go about regular work, we thought it would be nice to share an extra dose of fun through this hop.

Ink Stamp Share Special Blog, April 2020

Our theme today is Anything Goes, which leaves me free to create any type of project with any stamp set and tools I choose. As it’s Easter tomorrow, I thought an Easter bunny bringing happy thoughts would brighten your day.

Stampin' Up! Easter card with Free as a Bird DSP

I stamped the bunny on regular Whisper White cardstock in Stazon ink. Then I added a Pool Party wash with an Aqua Painter. The bunny was coloured in with Early Espresso and Melon Mambo watercolour pencils. 

This was then layered on a white rectangle embossed with the leaf embossing folder. 

Colouring in an Easter Bunny

I stamped the flowers from Free as a Bird stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and coloured it with Stampin’ Blends. Some leaves punched with the leaf punch have been added to complete the arrangement.

Colour Inkspiration CI#74 Easter Bunny

Colour Inkspirations #74 Easter card

Easter is next week and for my first time playing along with the Colour Inkspiration challenge I wanted to make an Easter card. Our colour palette this week is Night of Navy, Whisper White, Basic Gray and Mango Melody which is inspired by the photo below.

Colour Inkspiration #74

I’ve used the Welcome Easter stamp set and combined it with the flower and leaves from the To a Wild Rose bundle. This is the first time I’m using both these stamp sets. 

I created the background panel by stamping the second flower image from the To a Wild Rose stamp set right around the border. This is a really fun way to use your stamps and create interesting backgrounds. 

Pigment Sprinkles used with a Patterned mask on a Label with Aqua Brush

For the label I used a mask and Pigment Sprinkles. While holding the mask in place, I used an Aqua Painter to spread water around the open areas of the mask. Then I sprinkled the Mango Melody Pigment Sprinkles, helping it along with the Aqua Painter. I dabbed the excess off with a tissues (because I was impatient!). If you have time, leave it to dry by itself. A second label was die cut from Basic Gray cardstock and cut in half to layer behind the Pigment Sprinkle label.

I tied in the background stamping by adding a separate die cut flower as the focal point, along with a fussy cut bunny with her cute flower in her ear.

Products and measurements for this card are listed at the bottom of this post. If you live in Australia and would like assistance with any projects or making an order, I would love the opportunity to assist you.
