STAMPING AROUND THE WORLD JUNE BLOG HOP!

Time for another Blog Hop with the Stamping Around The World Tutorial Group.  We bring you different Tutorials each month and join together in a Blog Hop.

This month I am using the Tasteful Touches Bundle.  I have loved using this bundle the last few weeks.  It is so gorgeous.

Here is my project for you.

The flower is stamped over the white card with Basic Gray ink.  It just makes a simple statement.  The flower is stamped again on scrap white card and this one coloured with the Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.  The flower is fussy cut out with scissors.

The sentiment piece is stamped on Sahara Sand and diecut with the small banner shape from the Tasteful Labels Dies.  I thought the flower was a little bare so added a scallop circle cut from Vellum.  This scallop is cut with the scallop die in the the Tasteful Label Dies set.

Card measurements:

Thick Whisper White card base: 21cm x 14.8cm scored at 10.5cm   (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″)

ESAD MAY 2020 – SEE YA LATER FAVOURITES BLOG HOP!


Welcome to the ESAD See Ya Later Favourites Blog Hop. You have come from HERE with the gorgeous creations of Bronwyn, or you are starting on my Blog.

Our Blog Hop today is to feature one of our favourites products. I have chosen the Love What You Do Stamp Set.

I used this set a lot when it first came out and I have to say it got pushed aside with all the other lovelies arriving. When I pulled my retiring products off the shelf this week this one made me sad. So I thought it was time to ink it up again.

I have made a set of 3 simple cards for you today.

We have 3 different colours – Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green/Old Olive.

On the white card mat on each one I embossed the card with Subtle Embossing Folder.

On the Flirty Flamingo card above the flowers were coloured with the Light and Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends.

The Highland Heather card above was stamped with the Highland Heather inkpad and using the “splodge” stamp in the set.

For this card above I stamped the leaves in Old Olive and Granny Apple Green.

Now you can continue on your Way. You are off to Mandy’s blog now. Just click on the NEXT arrow below or click on the list.

PAPER ADVENTURES TEAM BLOG HOP – APRIL 2020!

I’m so honoured to be hopping along as a Guest with Kelly Kent and the Paper Adventures Team today.  Such a creative group of people. 🙂

The Blog Hop this month is a colour Theme with Pretty Peacock, Whisper White and Melon Mambo.  I love both these colours but have to say haven’t used these colours together.  So I wasn’t sure what I would do with them.

This is the card I have created.  I think we are all dreaming of a tropical paradise right now. 🙂

I have used the Timeless Tropical Bundle for this card.  The card was based on a recent Fab Friday sketch #187.

The frangipani flowers are stamped in Memento Black Ink on to Shimmery White card.  I took the liberty to use this card for the watercolouring. 🙂  The flowers were coloured with the ink pad and the Aquapainter.

The Pretty Peacock card piece was cut with one of the Stitched Nested Dies and then embossed with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.

When I was assembling the card I felt the white card was a bit plain.   I lightly swiped over some ink with the Aquapainter and Melon Mambo Ink.  I would suggest you use the Shimmery White for this or even Watercolour paper.  The Whisper White “pills” up a bit.  It was risky but I thought I might be stretching it to use the Shimmery White for that.  It turned out ok but then it is partly covered. 🙂

Now continue on your Blog Hop.  You are off to Siobhan’s blog -> HERE or click on the NEXT button below.

Thanks for hopping with me and the Paper Adventures Team.

STAMPING AROUND THE WORLD MARCH BLOG HOP – THOUGHTFUL BLOOMS!

Time for another Blog Hop with the Stamping Around The World Tutorial Group.  We put together Tutorial Bundles to send out to those who order each month with any of us and then bring you more inspiration with the Monthly Blog Hops.

This month for my tutorial I used the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set so I am using that in my project for you today for the Blog Hop.

This is a sweet set available as one of your free choices for Sale-A-Bration.  I chose to keep the cards simple for you with a little stamping and masking.

For the card above I first masked off a strip down near the bottom of the card to allow for space the sentiment.  The sentiment is from the Happy Birthday To You Stamp set. Of course that step is optional though.

Then I stamped the Flirty Flamingo flowers over the card.  I stamped some under the strip just to have some over the edge of the masked area.

Then finished with stamping flowers in Gorgeous Grape and the leaves in Granny Apple Green and Pear Pizzazz.

Before adhering this piece to the Flirty Flamingo card mat and the Thick Whisper White card base I ran it through with the Subtles Embossing Folder to give it some texture.

For the second Card I masked off the area this time in the right hand bottom corner after stamping the Thank You from the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp set.

Using the same colours I stamped the flowers and leaves.

The white card wasn’t embossed on this one but you could do that.  It was adhered to Gorgeous Grape card mat and then to a Whisper White card base.

Another flower in Flirty Flamingo was stamped on scrap white card and punched out with the Small Bloom Punch also available for Sale-A-Bration.

They are simple cards but I hope they inspire you in some way.

Have a great day,

STAMPING AROUND THE WORLD FEBRUARY BLOGHOP – HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!

Time for another Blog Hop with the Stamping Around The World Tutorial Group.  This month I am sharing a project with the Happy Birthday To You stamp set as that is the stamp set I used for the Tutorials this month.

I wanted to try something a little different with the dies.  I wanted to layer up the flowers on the card to give more dimension.  A bit like the old Paper Tole effect.  You can tell in the photo how it looks.

I stamped the cake from Happy Birthday To You on white card 3 times.  I used Basic Gray ink as it is a little softer.  I coloured just the cake on one, and then the flowers on the other 2 cakes.  They were coloured with Stampin’ Blends (Flirty Flamingo and Old Olive).  The cake was coloured with Mint Macaron.

On one of the cakes (the one without the flowers coloured in), I cut the full cake out with the Birthday Dies.  On the other two cakes I cut the flowers out with the flower die.  On one of these diecut flowers I trimmed off the top flower to have just a single flower.

Then diecut some leaves from Old Olive and Mint Macaron and adhere them behind the flowers before assembling them together.  You will find it so much easier – trust me!! 😉

After all the diecutting you can layer the cake together using Dimensionals to layer up the flowers.  The full diecut flowers was layered on to the diecut cake and then the single flower was raised up on top of these flowers.  If that makes sense?  So there were 3 layers with the top flowers.  Check the photo below to see it.

To finish the card I adhered a piece of the Perennial Essence paper on to a white card mat and then they were adhered to a Flirty Flamingo card base.

A rectangle from Vellum was cut from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  To adhere this to the card I added a little Snail Adhesive  behind where the cake would be and then the cake was adhered on to the Vellum with Dimensionals.

The little sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings and cut with the cute little shape in the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

Just a reminder that the Stamping Around The World are put together by 12 Demonstrators from around the world.  You can receive these tutorials as a Thank you for ordering from one of us.  Or you can purchase the Tutorials from me for $20 AUD.

STAMPING AROUND THE WORLD JANUARY BLOG HOP – TROPICAL OASIS!

 

Back with another Blog Hop from some of the Stamping Around The World Tutorial group.

The monthly tutorials are put together by a number of demonstrators from around the world and we send the tutorials out as a Thanks for ordering OR you can purchase the tutorials too.  I send one tutorial project out as a Thanks for people when they join my newsletter too. (see the link in the side column)

For the projects with these Blog Hops we use the same stamp sets/dies that we used for our own tutorial project for that month.  This month I have a project for you using the Tropical Oasis bundle. I am loving this bundle for it’s freshness and memories of a tropical paradise.  I have been to Hawaii a few times so this brings back lovely memories.

Enough waffling – on to my project as that is what you all really came to see.

This card was designed from a sketch like this one -> HERE.

The sketch had an angled focus piece which I have created with the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper.  I think on looking at this now I should have angled the paper piece a little more.

The white card was embossed with the new Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.

The hibiscus flower and the leaves from the Timeless Tropical Stamp set were stamped on Shimmery White card with Black Stazon and coloured with the Watercolor Pencils. 

TIP: when colouring, lightly colour and use the Aquapainter to wash over the colour slightly.  LET IT DRY! Don’t be in a hurry.  Allow time to dry.  It doesn’t take too long.  Then add some more colour to add a little more depth of colour.  Wash over it again then allow to dry. Then go back over it and add highlights.  It is a slow process I know but it gives you that depth of colour. It’s easier to add colour than take it away.

Before adhering the flower and leaves on to the card I added some loops of the Linen Thread behind them.

The sentiment was stamped on Crumb Cake card and cut with my new favourite the Stitched So sweetly Dies.  I added a little of the Braided Burlap Trim under the sentiment and just fluffed up the end of it.  To do this with your fingers rub the end and separate the threads until you are happy with it.  To adhere it to the back of the card I added a strip of the Tear and Tape on the back of the sentiment card piece and stuck the trim onto that.

ESAD 2020 MINI CATALOGUE AND SALE-A-BRATION BLOG HOP!

Time for another ESAD Blog Hop.  This time we are sharing projects from the new 2020 Mini Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration.  I can’t wait to see what everyone has created.  You might have come from Cathy’s Blog -> HERE or starting from this blog.  The full list of participants will be below.

Firstly with the Blog Hop.  What is ESAD anyway??  

Now for my project.  It’s a very hard decision to work out what you are going to use with these Blog Hops.  There are so many new and exciting products.  What’s a person to do?? 🙂  In the end I chose to use the new So Sentimental Bundle because I love the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I think many people will love them.  I have made a few projects with them recently but today I have this one to share with you.

I created a card and a little treat holder with the Kraft Pillow boxes.

With the card you don’t need too much with the gorgeous Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper.  Add a piece of this to a Granny Apple Green card mat and add this to the Poppy Parade card base.  The Granny Apple Green is not a colour that is featured in the paper but I think it gives it a little POP against the Poppy Parade colour.

The sentiment from the So Sentimental stamp set was stamped on white and cut with one of the label shapes in the Stitched So Sweetly Dies set.  This was layered on to a piece of Granny Apple Green cut with one of the other label die shapes.  It’s hard to tell but I embossed the green card with the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder to give it some texture.

I tied around some Granny Apple Green Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.

Wait, what?? Granny Apple Green Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.  Where is that in the catalogue??

It’s actually the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon on p 25 of the 2020 Mini Catalogue.  You can create any colour ribbon you like with the Stampin’ Blends.

Check it out below.  Just run along the ribbon with the Stampin’ Blends Marker. It dries quickly and ready to use on your projects.

Now for the Treat Holder.

Assemble the Kraft Pillow Box. Then wrap a strip of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper around the Pillow Box.  I wrapped around some more ribbon I had coloured around the box too.

The label for this box was using a different stamp in the So Sentimental stamp set and cut with different dies in the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  The Granny Apple Green card was embossed with the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder as well.

If you haven’t noticed the So Sentimental Bundle you can find it on p 20 of the Mini Catalogue. It has the different label shapes and Stitched Scalloped Rectangle dies of varying sizes. Great for layering together.  Available for $56 AUD.

Blog Hops, cards, Christmas, Stampin' Up!

STAMPING AROUND THE WORLD DECEMBER BLOG HOP!

We have another Blog Hop for you today with the Stamping Around The World Tutorial group.  As I used the Itty Bitty Christmas in my project for the Tutorial this month I am sharing another project for the Blog Hop.

You might have come from Alicia’s Blog HERE or starting from my corner of the world.  Enjoy this little hop around the world.  Here is my project for this month.

I wanted to create a different card using the Christmas Layers dies and not just diecutting them and adding them to the card.  So I diecut one of the dies from scrap paper and used that as a mask on the white card and then sponged through with the Seaside Spray ink and the sponge dauber.  It creates a fun effect.

I had to use those Playful Penguins of course.  I am sad they will be retiring.  If you haven’t got these cute guys you better get on it.  They are only available while supplies last.  And really they aren’t just for Christmas. 🙂

The penguin is stamped in Basic Gray and the scarf in Seaside Spray ink.  They were both hand cut with scissors.  I like to leave a little white edge around the shape as it is a little softer visually.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas set.  How sparkly is the Seaside Spray ribbon?? It is a little hard to tell in the photo.   A smaller snowflake star was cut from the Sparkle Glimmer Paper.

Just a note too:

The Itty Bitty Christmas stamps and the Christmas Layers dies will be carrying over but not as a Bundle so buying them now will save you 10%.  Check them out in my store along with the cute Playful Penguins stamp set -> HERE.

Now continue on the Blog Hop.  Just click on the little blue frog below.

Happy Hopping,

Jenny

All orders will receive the Tutorial Bundle of 12 projects from me as a little Thank You.
