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.

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.

Card Base: 10.5cm x 14.8cm  (4 1/4″ x 5 1/4″)

OCTOBER STAMPING AROUND THE WORLD BLOGHOP – MAGNOLIAS!

Back with you again for another Blog Hop with the Stamping Around The World Tutorial team. Using the same stamp set we have used in our tutorial project for the month I have used the Magnolia Blooms stamp set.  You might have come from Allie’s blog -> HERE. or starting on your way from this post. Either way, enjoy the hop.

I won’t give you all the specific card sizes but it is the standard card size. Each layer (the black and the white) are 4mm or 1/8” smaller in size. The paper strip from the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper is the length of the white card and 4 1/2 cm or 1 3/4” width.

On the white card stamp the Magnolia with Memento black. Then adhere the paper strip along the bottom. Wrap around the Black Ribbon before adhering it to the black card mat.

On scrap white card stamp the Magnolia again with Memento and colour it with the Stampin’ Blends. I used Petal Pink and Granny Apple Green. Hand cut that out and adhere it on to a Vellum circle.

The sentiment is heat embossed in Copper and cut with the small Rectangles Stitched dies and layered on to the little Ornate Frames Dies.

Now you can continue on your hop.  Click the link button below or you can head straight to Stefanie’s blog -> HERE.

PENGUIN EASEL FOR SEPTEMBER STAMPING AROUND THE WORLD BLOGHOP!

It’s time for September Blog Hop with the Stamping Around the World Tutorial Group.  You might have come from Sue’s Blog or starting here.

For our Blog Hop we use the stamp set/bundle that we used in this month’s Tutorial Bundle that are sent out.  Of course I used the Playful Penguins set from the new 2019 Holiday Catalogue. They are just too cute. 

For this Blog Hop I have made probably the easiest Easel card you could create.  The idea came from Lou’s blog -> HERE.

Let me show you the card and I will tell you how I have made it.

Front View

From Top

Side View

Folded card

To create the Super Simple Easel Card

See the ‘Side View’ photo above to get an idea of the fold.

Cut card to the standard size base card whether you are using Metric or the Imperial US card size.

Score 2.5 cm (1″) on the front of the card base. Fold on the score line.  This is for the fold of the Easel.

Cut a strip of card 2.5cm wide (1″) and the length being the width of the card.

I added a strip of the Christmas Gleaming stripe pattern on this piece of card. This strip is then adhered to the bottom edge of the inside of the card with dimensionals.  This strip creates the anchor point to hold the Easel up.

Decorate

Decorate the Easel card as you like.

I cut a curved strip of Sparkle Glimmer Paper and adhered it on the folded tab.  3 Penguins were stamped with their scarves and then hand-cut and raised up off the Glimmer Paper.  A piece of the Christmas Gleaming Designer Series Paper was adhered to the front of the card which you can see as the star pattern on the top panel.

The sentiment was stamped on a strip of white card but check out the flourish banner Gold Foil.  That was cut using the Ornate Frames Dies from the Holiday Catalogue.

Such an easy card to create but so fun with these penguins.

Remember you can grab the Tutorial Bundle from any of us for your qualifying orders.  Or purchase the Tutorial on it’s own ($20 AUD).

Now continue on the Blog Hop To Linda -> HERE.

WILDLY HAPPY FOR STAMPING AROUND THE WORLD AUGUST BLOGHOP!

Welcome to another Stamping Around The World Blog Hop.  So nice to have you.  You might have come from Margriet’s Blog or just starting Here.  Welcome and enjoy the hop.

Today I am using the set Wildly Happy as that was the one I used in the Tutorials for this month.

I wanted to do something a little different with this set.  I was thinking about this recently and was reminded that when you see pictures of elephants they are often in herds.  I did a little research and read that they are very social especially the female of the species and will keep close together looking out for each other.

So I created a little herd of elephants with the little baby.

Stampin' Up! Wildly Happy

To create this I used the Masking Technique. I have explained it further below. The elephants were stamped on Thick Whisper White card and coloured with the Smoky Slate Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends and I also used the Petal Pink ones for the baby.  The grass was with the Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.

MASKING YOUR ELEPHANTS

A piece of Thick Whisper White. Cut the card using one of the larger Rectangles Stitched dies. 

Note: I didn’t cut the card with the Rectangles Stitched Die until after I finished stamping and colouring the elephant so it is ok to leave it until then if you wish.

1. Firstly you will want to stamp your elephant on to a Sticky Note or you can use scrap paper with some removable adhesive.  Cut around the outline of the image.  For this card you will need to stamp 3 elephants in total on the Sticky Notes as you will use them all at one time in places.

2. Stamp your elephant and baby near the bottom right hand corner. Inking the stamp in Memento Ink.  Place one of your cut out Sticky Note elephants over the top of the image.  Ink up your stamp and stamp again just to the top left of the first one.  You will want to line it up so you just have the larger elephant shown.

3. Ink and stamp another elephant to the top right of the first one. The baby one should be just off the edge of the card but that is ok.

4. Place 3 of the Sticky Note elephants over each of the stamped elephants.

Masking Technique

5. Stamp another elephant in between the top 2 elephants.  And one elephant to the left of the left Sticky Note elephant.  Each time remember to line the elephant up to just stamp the adult one.

6. Move a Sticky Note to the last elephant stamped on the left and then ink and stamp another one to the left of this.

Once stamped you can then colour the elephants with the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends and colour the little baby one with Petal Pink.  I found them very easy to colour.  Using the Light Smoky Slate Blends colour the elephants completely.  Then using the Dark Blends add lines over the printed lines (wrinkles) on the elephants.

To assemble the card, emboss the Smoky Slate card, 10.1cm x 14.4cm (5⅜” x 4⅛”)  with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder and wrap around a length of the Petal Pink ribbon. Then adhere this to the Petal Pink Card base. Raise up the stamped card piece to the front.

Stamp the sentiment on Petal Pink card and cut with an oval die in the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Then raise that up off the card with Dimensionals.

TO A WILD ROSE FOR JULY STAMPING AROUND THE WORLD BLOG HOP!

Hello and welcome to another Stamping Around The World Tutorial Blog Hop.  I am excited to share again with this amazing, talented group.  You might have come from Jo Anne’s blog -> HERE or just starting out.  Either way, enjoy the hop.

Each month this group compiles a Bundle of Projects to send out free following orders from our customers, or people are able to purchase the tutorials regardless of where they live in the world.

We also come together to Blog Hop this time each month.  For our projects for the Blog Hop we create a project using the same stamp set we used in our Tutorials.  This month I used To A Wild Rose.

This is the card I have to share with you today.  It is not an original design and I have seen it on a few blogs but I am not sure what it is called.  I am calling it a Topper Card. 🙂 I have the measurements below.

THE TOPPER CARD

I have used the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper for the front of the card. Isn’t it pretty?

I stamped the large sentiment image on the first card.  It is a beautiful sentiment.  What a blessing it is to have a true friend.  I am very thankful for the blessing of a number of true friends.  I really loved the sentiment and wanted to use it.  The sentiment was diecut with the stitched label shape in the Wild Rose dies.  I backed it with some Silver Glimmer Paper which I had punched out with the Tailored Tag punch and cut in half.

When I finished the card the sentiment seemed to be too large and out of proportion or so I thought.    What do you think?  I re-stamped a smaller sentiment to go on the front.  The smaller sentiment was diecut with the Stitched Labels dies.

The rose in this set is created with 3 stamps.  You can use one, two or all three stamps together. I used all 3 in this one. The rose was stamped on scrap white paper.  Firstly stamp the outline rose image in Blackberry Bliss, the sparser filler image was stamped in Blackberry Bliss and the more detailed centre stamp was stamped in Rich Razzleberry.  I love how you get the depth to the flower with the multiple images.

I will say it can be a little tricky lining up the 3 images for the rose.  I will share a tip with you.

TIP FOR STAMPING THE ROSE: On each of the stamps I made a mark in pen on the back of each stamp in the same position.  When you stamp you can position the stamp in the same orientation each time.  It saves so much time and frustration – let me tell you.  Here is a photo showing the marks on the stamp. I hope this tip helps.

THE INSIDE OF THE TOPPER CARD

Of course, don’t miss the inside.  I had a strip of designer series paper over so I adhered that on to a piece of white card.  I had stamped an extra rose as I wasn’t sure which one to use for the front.  So I adhered that to the bottom right corner and trimmed off the overhang.  (This rose was stamped in blackberry Bliss for the outline image and Rich Razzleberry for the centre).

MAKE YOUR OWN TOPPER CARD

For the base card, cut card to 10.5cm x 21cm, score at 10.5cm.   (4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″).

Cut Designer Series Paper to 10.1cm x 10.1cm (4 1/8″ x 4 1/8″)

Cut White card for inside to 10.1cm x 10.1cm (4 1/8″ x 4 1/8).

To create the Topper part.  Make this any shape you desire.  I have used the Layering Circles Framelits. 

The topper is placed on the base card on the fold line with half of the topper overhanging. Remember when you add the topper to the top of the card only place your dimensionals to the lower half of the Topper shape so you don’t see them at the back. 

SEE IN STORE

You can see the To A Wild Rose Bundle in my store now -> HERE.  $93.50 AUS.

STAMPING AROUND THE WORLD JUNE BLOG HOP – DAISY LANE!

It’s time for another exciting Blog Hop with Stamping Around the World Team.  You might have come from Linda’s Blog HERE or starting on my blog.  Either way.  Enjoy seeing all the amazing projects from Demonstrators around the World. 

Each month the team all contribute tutorials to send out as a Thank You for  when you order with any one of us.  That’s pretty exciting – and I can tell you these projects have been pretty amazing AND they are exclusive too so you won’t see them anywhere else.  I am honoured to be a part of it.  

The idea with these Blog Hops is to share a project with you with products we have used in our Tutorial for the month.  I have used the new Daisy Lane Bundle.  

Today I have 2 cards using the Daisy Lane stamp set and the Medium Daisy Punch.  I have also used the larger Daisy Punch.

The layout for the cards was based on the Freshly Made Sketches #339.  I thought it was a great way to use the paper. On these cards I used the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper.

It’s great way to show off the both side of the paper.  The Designer Series Paper needs to be square and to be the width of the white card mat whatever size you choose to make the card in.  These are standard card sizes.  See the measurements below.

Card Measurements:

Card Base: Mint Macaron 14.8cm x 21cm Scored at 10.5cm (5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Scored at 4 1/4″)

Soft Suede Card Mat: 10.1cm x 14.4cm (4 1/8″x 5 3/8″)

Whisper White Card Mat:  9.7cm x 14cm (4”x 5 1/4″)

Designer Series Paper:  9.7cm x 9.7cm (4″x 4″).

Cut the DSP diagonally and flip one side.  For these cards I used 2 different prints in the pack and actually swapped one half with the other as I thought the colours worked better together.

See the cards close up

I have punched 2 flowers of each size and layered them together.  The flowers were stamped in Soft Suede. and I used the Gold Faceted Gems in the centre of the flowers.

The sentiments are from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.

Now the Daisy Lane Bundle is in store now -> HERE for $61 AUS When shopping in store please use the Host Code: H2BBRFTE

If you have the Daisy Delight set and the larger Daisy Punch then this is a great compliment to them and will really extend your creating so you can make the layered daisies in both sizes.  You can grab those in my store too if you haven’t already got them. With your qualifying orders you will get the Tutorial bundle with 12 projects that I will send out to you.

Now you can head off on the hop again and head to Jo Anne’s blog HERE or follow the arrows.  If you get lost follow the list below.
