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.

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.

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.

Blog Hops, cards, Stampin' Up!, Tutorials

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!). 🙂

3D projects, cards, Stampin' Up!

STAMPING AROUND THE WORLD BLOGHOP!

 

Today I am taking part in a Blog Hop with the Demonstrators from the Stamping Around the World Tutorial team I am part of.  This is exciting! I hope you can take some time and enjoy the short hop around the world.  You might have come from  Sue Allen’s Blog or just starting out from here.  That’s ok.  Grab a cup of your favourite beverage and hop along to each blog.

Today I am sharing a project with the Hello Cupcake set.  I used this set in my project for this month’s Tutorials so thought I would use it again for the Blog Hop project.

Using a Clear Acetate Card Box I created a set of cards.  This would make a nice gift set.

The paper is from the Brights Paper Stack in the Annual Catalogue.  It is 6″x6″ (15.2cm) and not quite wide enough to wrap around the box completely.  I could join it but then you would notice it on this.  So I just went with a strip across the front and tied around some Lemon Lime Twist Organdy ribbon around the strip before adhering it to the front of the box.

The diecut “friend” is from the new Well Written Framelits Dies.  The “FOR YOU” is from the stamp set Well Said. These two come as a bundle or individually.

I made a set of 5 one layer cards using 5 different colours from the Brights Collection: Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape, Mango Melody, Poppy Parade and Bermuda Bay.

The cupcake base was stamped in Early Espresso ink.  The “frosting” was stamped on scrap white card in the ink colour and then fussy cut out.  This was raised up with Dimensionals..  I stamped “sprinkles” in the corner in the co-ordinating colour. Of course, a Rhinestone to finish. 🙂

The cards were very quick to put together.  You could make them even quicker if you stamped the “frosting” directly on the card.  It’s nice to have a little card set on-hand to give out to someone.

Here are a couple of them individually to see.  I had to add a few sprinkles around for the photos. 🙂

This one is in Mango Melody.

This one is in Poppy Parade.  This is not a colour I use too often but I liked it on this card.

I hope you liked the Hello Cupcake card set.

This set is a free choice for Sale-A-Bration with orders over $90 AUS.  You can order your Stampin’ Up! products in my store now -> HERE  Please use the Host Code: FYQHM4CK
