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.

In Australia? You can grab it in my store now -> HERE

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 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.

HELLO 2019 INCOLORS!

I shared a card last post with the new Incolors.  Today I wanted to look a little closer at them.

I put together a comparisons chart to show you how the 2019-2021 InColors compare with other current colours.  I like to do this each year and everyone who comes along to my studio like to look at it closely.  It gives you a good idea.

On the chart below the new Incolors are marked with an asterix (*).

Rococo Rose – It’s like a dusky pink. It’s very popular at the moment in fashion and even decor.  Have you seen this colour around? It’s not as bright as Flirty Flamingo but darker then Blushing Bride.

Purple Posy – I will be honest, sometimes I am not sure of this colour.  At times it can appear a bit washed out while other times it gives a subtle purple shade.  It is certainly much lighter than the popular Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape.

Pretty Peacock – Another popular shade in fashion at the moment.  I was out shopping today and saw so many clothes in this colour.  I did tell my daughter it was Pretty Peacock.  She just rolled her eyes.  I don’t understand. 😉  I didn’t compare this to the Shaded Spruce or Garden Green here but when I looked at them earlier I find this is not as bright a green which is nice.

Terracotta Tile – When I pulled all the colours out I was amazed how close in colour it is to Calpso Coral.  I do use this colour a lot so maybe this will be a good alternative sometimes.  I will see about it.  It has a more pinkier tones perhaps?? And too it is another popular colour in the clothing range.

Seaside Spray – I quite like this shade of blue.  I have to say it was very popular at my Catalogue Kick off events over the weekend.  It is not as bright a blue as the Balmy Blue.  I think it is a nice blue for sea and sky stamping.

So I am not sure of what colour is my favourite as yet.  I am warming more to them each time I use them so stayed tuned for further projects and how I use them.

What is your favourite? Can you take the quick poll please.  It will be interesting to see what everyone thinks.

SUNSET WITH THE 2019 STAMPIN’ UP! INCOLORS!

Ok, maybe this is a bit of a loose title but hey sometimes it’s hard to be creative with blogging. 🙂

I have been playing with the new 2019 Incolors lately.  I will say when I first saw them I was a bit blah! BUT now I have been playing with them a bit I am really warming to them.  I will talk to you more about them in a later post but I thought we would start with this card today.  I wanted to use all the Incolors together.

I thought this reminded me of a sunset over the ocean.  That’s what it is like where I live anyway.  We have Pretty Peacock at the bottom for the grass under the lighthouse, Seaside Spray for the water, Purple Posy as the sky is changing, a little more pink with Rococo Rose and the orange with the Terracotta Tile.  Can you see it now??

Here is my inspiration.  This is our local lighthouse in Wollongong.  The sky wasn’t that orange this night unfortunately but it can get quite intense.  You just have to imagine it.

To create the card I cut equal strips of the Incolors then adhered them to a piece of Whisper White card.  This was a lot easier to line them up.  Also since I was embossing it with the Subtle Embossing Folder it made it easier to run through the machine.

I used the new Sail Away stamp set which is a really cool one. Watch out for more with this.

Stay tuned for more creating with the Incolors too.  Have a great day,

Jenny

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #69 – REATTACHING THE LOCK BUTTON ON YOUR STAMPIN’ UP! PUNCHES

Do you have this problem?  The lock mechanism on your punches pop out and you can’t get them back in.  I found this video on Youtube to help you get them back in and to stop it happening in the first place.

So for Wednesday’s WOW! #69 – how to reattach the lock on your punches. I tried it and it works.

Thanks Kat for this video.  It was very helpful.

Now you can go off and fix those little locks on your punches.

Have a great day,

Jenny
