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.

STAMPING AROUND THE WORLD MAY BLOGHOP – ONE FOR ALL!

It’s time for another Blog Hop with the Stamping Around The World Tutorial team.  What fun!

You might have come from Linda’s Blog or just starting here.  Either way, enjoy the hop.

For my project today I am using the retiring One For All stamp set that I have used in my tutorial project for this month.  I am sad that this set is leaving.  I have had fun with this set so it’s nice to use it for one last time. For today’s project I made 3 cards in some of the retiring Incolors.

We have Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide and Berry Burst.  I am sad that these colours are going too.

With my stamp set I actually cut the stamp with the bike and the sentiment cutting them apart. I found that made it so much more versatile.

I stamped the sentiment over Crumb Cake card in Memento Black. I just stamped it Freehand but you could use the Stamparatus perhaps.  I wasn’t worried about it being the exact distance apart.

On white card I then stamped the lady on the bike and matted it in the co-ordinating card colour.  The Happy Birthday from the Amazing Life stamp set was stamped on a small card strip.  Then on the back of the strip add some Snail adhesive and swirl some Copper Metallic Thread.  How can this be going too?? 😦

Here are each of them individually for a closer look.

I hope you like them.

You can head off to the next blog in the Blog Hop now.  Just a reminder though that the Stamping Around The World Tutorial Team have come together to bring you 12 exclusive Tutorials each month. You can receive them Free with your qualifying orders (Over $78 AUS) or you can purchase them through one of us for $20 AUS.  They are always great projects. Here is a sneak of this months.

STAMPING AROUND THE WORLD MARCH BLOG HOP – RAINBOW FLOWERS!

2 posts in one day! This post I am joining in with a Blog Hop for the Stamping Around the World Tutorial team.  Each month we join in a hop with a project using the same stamp set we used in our Monthly Tutorials.  It’s a great way of seeing a different way of using them.  You might be starting here or have just come from Sandra’s amazing creations.

For my project today I am using the Painted Seasons Stamp set.  It’s been a very popular set in recently and to think that it is a free set with your order!

I wanted a fun, bright card.  I have made a rainbow of flowers on my card.

I stamped the flower in the set over a piece of white card to create a rainbow effect.  The inks used were Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Gorgeous Grape.  The sentiment is from Love What You Do set.  And did you notice the label shape? I used the new Story Label Punch.  I stamped a piece in Granny Apple Green too and then cut the piece in half and layered it behind the stamped white piece.

While making this card I stamped a few pieces of Whisper White to work on the arrangement.  I didn’t want to waste them so I made another 2 cards with the pieces.

The sentiment on the above cards are from the Butterfly Gala Stamp set and diecut with a small rectangle from the Rectangle Stitched Framelits.  I cut another one in Silver Foil and cut it in half and layered it behind the stamped rectangle.

I hope you like the cards.  They are simple but I think bright and colourful and very quick to make.

Now you are off on the next hop.  Head off to Jo Anne’s blog now HERE.  Or you can follow the arrows below.

STAMPING AROUND THE WORLD FEBRUARY BLOG HOP!

Welcome to the Stamping Around the World Blog Hop.  The team brings you the Free Tutorials each month and we have decided to join in a Blog Hop to share more creations just for you.  You will travel all over the world in this hop.  Each of us are using the same stamp set that we used in our Tutorial projects. So I hope you enjoy the Hop.

You would have come from Margriet’s Blog HERE or just starting from mine here. Either way you can follow along with us.

For my project this month I have used the Incredible Like You set.  For today’s project I created a Panel card using this set.  I have the instructions below so if you want to make your own you can.  This card was hard to take photos of so I hope you get the idea.

Front on.

The front of the card is cut shorter with the panel overhanging.

The butterfly is from Butterfly Gala coloured with the Stampin’ Blends. I just happened to have this finished butterfly on my desk left over from a previous project that I didn’t end up using. It worked well I think.

I added the Glitter Gems for a little sparkle.  The paper is from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration.  (This paper is in low supply so you if you want it you better grab this one soon). The Organdy Ribbon is already gone sorry.

The inside. 

The sentiment is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous.

MAKE YOUR OWN PANEL CARD

I have the measurements for you in Metric and Imperial.

METRIC (apologies in advance for the odd measurements but this is what I started with on my white stamped piece and went from there.  The panel can be made in any size to suit)

CARD

Base Card (Highland Heather) – 14.8cm x 21cm scored at 10.5cm.  Trim off 3cm on the front.

Card Mat (Lemon Lime Twist) – 14.4cm x 7cm

Paper – 14cm x 6.6cm

Inside Piece (Whisper White) – 14.4cm x 10.1cm

 

FRONT PANEL

Mat (Highland Heather) – 9.5cm x 7.2cm

Mat (Lemon Lime Twist) – 9.1cm x 6.8cm

Stamped Piece (Whisper White) – 8.7cm x 6.4cm

 

IMPERIAL (for the mat pieces I have reduced them by 1/4″.  You may wish to reduce them more to suit you)

CARD

Base Card (Highland Heather) – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″scored at 4 1/4″.  Trim off 1 1/2″ on the front.

Card Mat (Lemon Lime Twist) – 5 3/8″ x 2 7/8″

Paper – 5 1/4″ x 2 3/4″

Inside Piece (Whisper White) – 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″

 

FRONT PANEL

Mat (Highland Heather) – 3 3/4″ x 2 3/4″

Mat (Lemon Lime Twist) – 3 5/8″ x 2 5/8″

Stamped Piece (Whisper White) – 3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″

STAMPED FLOWER

Now if you notice the flower on the front there isn’t actually a stamp for that.  I created that using some of the images in the set.  The “dot” for the centre and the “petals” for the leaf.  This is how you can build your flower up.  I hope it is clear enough.

1. First stamp the “dot” on your card.  I used So Saffron.  Use the leaf shape to build your petals of your flower.

2. Stamp around the circle spacing them evenly apart.

3.  Go back around the circle stamping in the spaces.

4. You have your finished flower.  I added some Wink of Stella in the centre of the flower but it didn’t show up too well on the card photo.

 

The Incredible Like You set is in my store now -> HERE.  $28 Aus. It has been very popular at all the events I have done recently.  Everyone loves how versatile it is and the sentiments are lovely.

There is only one week left for the February Tutorial Bundle.  The bundle contains 10 exclusive projects from Demonstrators around the world. Receive it Free with your orders over $78 AUS.  This will be emailed out to you after you order.

OR you can purchase the Tutorials for $20 AUS. You won’t be disappointed.  People have said to me how gorgeous the projects are.  (and they are!). 🙂

STAMPIN’ DREAMS BLOG HOP – FAVOURITE TECHNIQUE – SALT BACKGROUND!

I am joining in with the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop this month and we are sharing Favourite Techniques.  I always love to try different techniques.  Before we start you might be starting here or you have just come from Jenny Hall’s Blog -> HERE.

As for my Favourite Technique.  That’s a hard one to choose one.  What I am sharing though today is a technique that I have wanted to try for a very long time so it was a good chance to play with it to create some, hopefully fun cards with you.

The technique I am sharing with you is the Salt Background Technique.  Have you tried this before?

Using the salt on a wet background creates a type of “bleaching” of dots on your card as the card dries.  I will show you the cards and then show you how to create your own.  (You might want to continue to Blog Hop and stop by again later to take in all the details).

HOW TO CREATE YOUR OWN SALT BACKGROUND

For this technique you can use any type of salt but the result will differ.  The larger Rock Salt will result in larger “bleached” patterns (like the first example above) whereas the regular fine Table Salt will give a speckled type of “bleached” pattern, (like the 2nd example).

As you need to add water to your card you will need a good quality card to take the water. Either the Stampin’ Up! Watercolour Paper or the Shimmer Paper works very well.

NB: The steps below are for the first card sample above.

1. Wash over your card with the Aquapainter and water.  Add drops of chosen reinker colour(s) over your card.

For this sample below I added drops of Pumpkin Pie Reinker first over different areas on the card.

I added other colours too.  Daffodil Delight and Bermuda Bay.

2. Using the Aquapainter wash over the colours to spread it over the card.  Try not to mix the colours too much though. It does look a bit messy.  The colours lighten as they dry too. Each time you do it, it will work out different.  You can just use one colour reinker too as I did in the Night of Navy card.

While the card is still wet sprinkle over your salt.  I forgot to take a photo of this sample with the salt on it but I will show a different card below.

3.  Allow the card to dry. You could use the Heat Tool but I found it just spread the colours more which I didn’t want so leave the card for several hours or even overnight.

Once it is dried lightly brush off the salt.  You will see little “bleached” spots where the salt was.  It is a great effect and you can use that directly on your cards.

Here is a different sample in Rich Razzleberry showing the salt over the card.  I will share the finished card for this one at a later time.  For these cards I used the Rock Salt which are larger grains of salt.

For this Night Of Navy one below I used the finer Table Salt. Which I didn’t take a photo of at the time. I did add a lot more salt to the card too. I like this effect how it turned out.

I will say my hands were very inky by the time I finished with all the different colours.  But that’s part of the fun. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by.  Now you are off on the next blog and can see what technique they have to share with you today.

ESAD 2018 HOLIDAY CATALOGUE BLOG HOP!

 

Welcome to the ESAD 2018 Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop.  It’s nice to have you stop by.  I am sure you will see lots of gorgeous projects along the hop with the lovely new products from the new Holiday Catalogue.

Firstly though, ESAD is a great group of Demonstrators from Australia and New Zealand and we love sharing with you regularly.

 

You would have come from Rachael’s blog HERE or you are starting from this blog.  You can just hop from one post to the other though in the links shown in each post and see the projects.

For my projects today I have used the very cute So Santa set.  I love that we have some “summery” Christmas sets because in Australia we don’t have snow and snowmen at Christmas time.

These are the 2 cards I have made.

Don’t you love the cool Santa dude in his boardies.  (yes, that’s Aussie for Board shorts).  They were both coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  I kept the layout the same for both and just changed them slightly.  Both the sentiments are from the So Santa set.  The paper is from the Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalogue.  Of course you could use any paper.  I just flagged the end of the pieces.  They were adhered to a white card mat that I had embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. 

One of the images I cut with the Layering Squares Framelits and I cut a Silver Glimmer Paper scallop square to go behind it.  The other was cut with the Layering Circles Framelits with a scallop circle behind it.

Hope you like these Santas??

If you haven’t already checked the Holiday Catalogue out, you can click on the link in the right hand column.

RAZZLEBERRY BOTANICAL BLISS!

A couple of weeks ago when I was creating a card for a Blog Hop I was in I created this card.  I wasn’t happy with it for the Blog Hop but I thought I would share it with you now.  It is not my usual style so I didn’t feel comfortable with it. 🙂

At the time the theme of the Blog Hop was to be using a product from the current Catalogue.  If you go back a few posts (or head -> HERE) you can see what I ended up with.

I was having trouble working out what to make for it initially so I thought I would CASE a card from the catalogue.  The card on page 99 of the catalogue caught my eye so I thought I would use that as inspiration.

This was the inspiration card.

Details for my card I created up above.

The Designer Series Paper strip is from Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The Razzleberry Strip is embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.

The tag and the background was stamped with the Timeless Textures stamp set.  I sponged around the edge with White Craft Ink and distressed the edges.  The little sprigs were diecut from the Botanical Tags Thinlits cut from Mossy Meadow card. The circle is stamped with images from the Botanical Bliss stamp set.  I swirled around a couple of loops of Linen Thread behind the circle. 

So certainly different. Whether you like it or not just remember that the catalogue can be a great source of inspiration to create your next card.

JOY OF SETS 2018 CATALOGUE BLOG HOP!

I am taking part in a Blog Hop today with the Facebook group – The Joy Of Sets.

You might have just come from Kirsten’s blog. (click on the arrow below to go back if you missed it or you will get there after going around the hop).

Today’s theme is a project using any product from the current 2018 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue.

Focusing on ANY product from this current catalogue is pretty overwhelming really.  There are so many wonderful products.  What do you choose!! After trying a few options I chose the Sitting Pretty Bundle.  I made a card set in some fun bright colours.

I used the Brights Paper stack and the co-ordinating Glitter Enamel Dots in Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana and Melon Mambo.

The lovely ornate seat is heat embossed in Copper and then cut with the Pretty Park Framelits. I added a vellum scallop circle under the seats and cut a small heart that is in the Framelits set in the matching colour.  The sentiments and the fun swirl is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set.

Here is a close-up of the Gorgeous Grape one so you can see it more clearer.  They are all the same layout.

Now you can continue the Blog Hop and see all the other creations.  Head to Susan’s Blog by clicking on the arrow below.

Happy Hopping,

STAMPIN’ DREAMS BLOG HOP – ANNUAL CATALOGUE SNEAK PEEK!

Today I am joining in the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop.  It is all about the new Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek so you are in for a treat.  I am sure there are some lovely creations everyone will share today.  You might be starting here or you have just come from Elaine’s blog -> HERE.

Today I am focusing on the new Bundle Sitting Pretty.

I have created 2 cards with this Bundle.  I really like the seat Dies in the Pretty Park Framelits set.

I have used the gorgeous Share What You Love Designer Series Paper.  The card base is the new Incolor Grapefruit Grove.  For both of them I used sentiments from the set Eastern Beauty stamp set.  I kept the layout similar for both cards.

For the top card I cut the bench seat in Black Cardstock.  For the little bird I stamped it in black and stamped the inside of the bird in Mint Macaron.  You don’t even need to colour it with the markers or pencils.  Just a tip though: I stamped the inside of the bird twice turning the stamp slightly each time to give a little more cover in the inking.  It’s a little hard to know how to stamp it. Now don’t bother trying to cut this tiny bird with scissors.  You can cut it with the matching die!

On the card below I have used the lovely Velvet Rich Razzleberry Ribbon. For this set I stamped the ornate seat in Rich Razzleberry ink on Rich Razzleberry card.  This was then cut out with the matching die.  I also cut a heart in Silver Glimmer Paper with the heart die. 

I hope you like them.

You can head off to the next Blog.  Now we have Jessie’s amazing creations.  Click on the NEXT button below.  If that doesn’t work then click -> HERE.

The full list of participants is below though if you get lost.

Not long now for you to wait for the start of catalogue.  June 1st is the day!!

Today I am sharing with you a Fun Fold card,  It’s a Pop Out Swing Card. I have made a few versions of this card (see one HERE), but this one is a teeny tiny version.  So cute!  It stand about 10cm (4″) high.  I have used the gorgeous new set available early this month, the Love What You Do stamp set and the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper.

Don’t forget a matching envelope for this card too.  Made easy with the Envelope Punch Board.

The beautiful paper and colours makes this a gorgeous project without too much to it.  That Rich Razzleberry Velvet ribbon is just so soft and gorgeous too.

The Frame on the front of the card is made with the Layering Squares Framelits.  The sentiment inside is from the Southern Serenade set.  The leaf stem on the inside is cut from Mossy Meadow cardstock using the Flourish Thinlits.
