FLIRTY DAISIES!

This week I am sharing some Daisy cards with you using the Daisy Lane Bundle.  

I am sharing this card with you first.  I am not sure about it still but, well … I am still putting it out here as it may inspire someone – in some way.

We are just keeping it simple with this one with a little stamping of the daisies in Flirty Flamingo and Rich Razzleberry.

Just one stamped and punched daisy on one of the daisies to highlight it.  Add a little Clear Faceted Gem to the centre.

Sometimes you can just do simple right. 🙂

I will share more daisies with you again next post,

BIRD BALLAD WEEK DAY 5 – CUTE TAGS!

I have been sharing cards all week for my Bird Ballad Week.  Have you liked seeing them?  Today I thought I would show you some tags I have made.

These first ones are very simple.  I adhered a strip of the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper to a strip of White card.  This makes the tags more sturdy.  Then I could punch them with the new Delightful Tag Topper Punch.  It was just a matter of tying through some Mint Macaron Ribbon and I added a small sentiment on Petal Pink card with some loops of Silver Thread behind.

I made a number of these tags below. These were little Thank You tags for customer orders this month.  Did you get one??

For these tags I added some of the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper to White card again and punched them out with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch. These were then decorated a little differently.

For the “thank you” flower one I stamped the flower on some scrap white card and coloured it with the Stampin’ Blends.  The sentiment was stamped on Mint Macaron card and punched out with the new Timeless Label Punch. I positioned the flower on the card so I could see where to stamp the leaves on it.  Then when I had done that I raised up the flower with Dimensionals.

For the other tag I stamped the sentiment (which is from a Demonstrator stamp set – Workshop Words Too).  It’s hard to see but I diecut a flower from the Wild Rose Dies out of Vellum and added it under the sentiment piece.

Did you see the fringing though??  This is made from the Woven Threads Trim.  I just pulled off the stitching from along the bottom to the length I wanted.  Here you can see it clearer in the photo below.

Below is an image for you to PIN on Pinterest as an easy reminder.

There you have it. 5 Days of the Bird Ballad Suite showing lots of different projects with this lovely suite.  I am sure I will be creating a lot  more with them so watch out.

Be sure to add this bundle or any of the other products to your next order.

BIRD BALLAD WEEK DAY 4 – CATALOGUE KICK OFF MAKE AND TAKE!

Bird Ballad Week Day 4.  Have you liked the projects so far?

A few weeks ago I had my Catalogue Kick-Off event for everyone to come and see the new catalogue and have fun creating.  This was one of the cards that everyone got to make using the Bird Ballad Suite.

I have CASED this card from Angie’s blog -> HERE. I loved the simpleness of it yet it is still elegant.  Everyone who came to my Kick-Off loved the card too.

I used the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and the gorgeous Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  The birds were coloured with the Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends.  I had never used Petal Pink until a few weeks ago.  Now I am really starting to love it – possibly.  They certainly work nicely with this suite.

You can grab the Bird Ballad Bundle in my store now -> HERE.  Please use the Host Code: H2BBRFTE

I really love those Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  You won’t be sorry you bought those. You can buy them as the bundle or individually.

Thanks for visiting today.  Have a great day/night wherever you may be visiting me from.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #72 + BIRD BALLAD WEEK DAY 3 – COLOURING THE PRETTY BIRDS!

Today is a double Whammy for you.  We have Wednesday’s WOW!  and also we are up to Day 3 of my Bird Ballad Week.  Today I have a video for you. I have been colouring the little birds and the flowers from the Free As A Bird stamp set so thought I would actually share a video with you.

This is the card I will show you how to colour in the video.

See the video below.  Bare in mind that this is a new area for me so it’s a work in progress AND I have a bit of a cold so the volume might be a bit quiet.  Just turn up your volume and watch away.  And you can fast forward in parts of the colouring. 🙂  I will work on that too.  I do appreciate your feedback though.  Good or bad – I can handle it.   Thank You. 🙂

I really like the Stampin’ Blends for colouring.  They make it so easy to get the contrast in colours.  I love that a lot of the images with Stampin’ Up! have shading on different parts of the image so you can follow these to get the contrast as well with the Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends.

I hope you found this helpful?  Would you  like more videos like this?  Constructive criticisms welcome.

I still have more to show you with this bundle so be sure to stop by again tomorrow as we continue our Bird Ballad Week,

BIRD BALLAD WEEK – DAY 2 – MORE WITH THE GORGEOUS PAPER!

I have 2 more cards for you forDay 2 of Bird Ballad Week.  These use the gorgeous Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper again and now with a little colouring with the Stampin’ Blends. 

This one above is another really quick card.  This little birdie was coloured with the Petal Pink and the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.  It was inspired by the sweet birds on the paper.  I just added some of the gorgeous Mint Macaron Ribbon.

For this one above I diecut a window using the new Stitched Nested Labels Dies in the Calypso Coral card base. I added a piece of the Bird Ballad paper behind it.  To cover it on the inside of the card I adhered a piece of white card over it.  You don’t have to do that if you don’t want to. I just thought that would make it look neater on the inside.

Back to the front of the card I stamped some small flowers in Calypso Coral ink over the front of the card and added a “thank you” – nervously I must admit as I didn’t want to mess it up.  But all good that worked.

On some additional Thick Whisper White I stamped some of the flowers and leaves in Memento Black ink and coloured them in with the Stampin’ Blends.  These were fussy cut out.

Thanks for visiting me again today.  See you tomorrow for some more pretty birds.

BIRD BALLAD WEEK DAY ONE – PRETTY PAPER!

It’s Bird Ballad Week this week. 

This is such a gorgeous group of products that have shown to be very popular if you have been looking around the internet. I know I have been having fun creating with them and I have lots to share with you.

Isn’t this just the prettiest paper?? You don’t need much more to it.  The sentiment is from the Free As A Bird stamp set on a strip of Calypso Coral card. I just angled the end and then added some loops of Linen Thread behind. To do this I wrapped the Linen Thread around my fingers a few times and added that to the back of the card strip by adding Snail Adhesive to the back of the strip. It’s a quick and easy card.

The Bird Ballad Bundle includes the Free As A Bird stamp set and the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  You can also buy them individually and also the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper. All  GORGEOUS!!

In Australia? You can buy them in my store now -> HERE. $89 AUS for the Stamps and Die Bundle. Please use the Host Code: H2BBRFTE

See you again tomorrow.

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.

NEW WONDERS CHALLENGE CARD!

It was a long weekend here for us this weekend.  With a little extra time and for something fun we had a different kind of challenge on my Facebook group.  I got the group members to design my next card.  Twice on Saturday and then on Sunday I set a Poll with different categories for the card each time. There were 4 different options in each category and they could vote on it.  The categories were Stamp sets to use, Colour Collection, Style and shape that must be on it.

The end result was that the stamp set New Wonders was chosen using Subtles colours.  It was to be in Vintage style (which is not one I do much of) and it had to have a oval on it.  So do you want to see the card??

I was happy that this set was chosen as I have been using this a bit lately – and it is a bit sweet. 🙂 I posted some cards yesterday here on my blog.  Head back a post if you missed it.  I think I pulled the vintage style off ok as it is not my usual style. I used a little distressing and a little sponging.

When I put together a card from scratch myself I often turn to card sketches to help.  This one was based on this Sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #251.

Have you joined my Facebook group yet?? Head -> HERE and ask to join.

Thanks for visiting me.

NEW WONDERS TRIO!

I don’t really do cute-sy, But I really loved this sweet set New Wonders in the catalogue.  It arrived recently and of course had to have a play.

Disclaimer: I am not great at colouring.  And I will try and avoid it if I can.  I will say though that this set makes colouring a whole lot easier.  The designers of this set have created shadows in the images so I just followed these to give the different depths of colour.  A bit like Colour by number except with shading instead.

Here are the trio of cards for you.

I will show you them individually to get a closer look.

This one above was coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  The Highland Heather mat is embossed with the Lace 3D embossing Folder.

The top one here is coloured with the Stampin’ Blends as well.  I have to say this was the second attempt at colouring this one.  It wasn’t going well. I outlined the little fairy image with the Light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends to give it some dimension.  It’s much softer than the grey I usually use. I have used the Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder with this one.  I love the sweet sentiments in this set too. Behind the diecut circle the image is on I diecut a scalloped circle in the Dazzling Glimmer Paper.  That is a little hard to see though.

This one above in Rococo Rose is coloured with the Watercolor Pencils.  While the Stampin’ Blends are easy to use I do prefer to colour with the pencils.  I feel I have a little more control with the colours.  To highlight the “hi” I gave it a light wash with the Daffodil Delight pencil and washed it a little with the Aquapainter. I have used the gorgeous Scalloped Lace Trim on each card.

Do you like this set?  It’s a sweet one.

This New Wonders set is a Host set and only available as a Host of an event when the total orders are over $250 AUS OR if your own orders are over $250.  I have had a few of those already with people stocking up on all the gorgeous products in the catalogue.

All orders receive a little “something” from me.  And if your order is over $78 AUS receive the exclusive project tutorial Bundle to make 12 gorgeous projects.

Thanks for stopping by. And if you are in Australia I hope you have enjoyed the Long Weekend.  Maybe extra time to create. 🙂
