STAMPING AROUND THE WORLD JUNE BLOG HOP!

Time for another Blog Hop with the Stamping Around The World Tutorial Group.  We bring you different Tutorials each month and join together in a Blog Hop.

This month I am using the Tasteful Touches Bundle.  I have loved using this bundle the last few weeks.  It is so gorgeous.

Here is my project for you.

The flower is stamped over the white card with Basic Gray ink.  It just makes a simple statement.  The flower is stamped again on scrap white card and this one coloured with the Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.  The flower is fussy cut out with scissors.

The sentiment piece is stamped on Sahara Sand and diecut with the small banner shape from the Tasteful Labels Dies.  I thought the flower was a little bare so added a scallop circle cut from Vellum.  This scallop is cut with the scallop die in the the Tasteful Label Dies set.

Card measurements:

Thick Whisper White card base: 21cm x 14.8cm scored at 10.5cm   (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″)

Flirty Flamingo card: 8.5cm x 12.8cm (3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″)

Whisper White card: 8.1cm x 12.4cm (3 3/8″ x 4 5/8″)

Scrap card pieces: Whisper White, Sahara Sand, Vellum.

Also used: 

Tasteful Touches Bundle, Many Mates stamp set.

Memento Ink, Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends (light and Dark), Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends, Adhesive Pearls.

STAMPING AROUND THE WORLD FEBRUARY BLOGHOP – HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!

Time for another Blog Hop with the Stamping Around The World Tutorial Group.  This month I am sharing a project with the Happy Birthday To You stamp set as that is the stamp set I used for the Tutorials this month.

I wanted to try something a little different with the dies.  I wanted to layer up the flowers on the card to give more dimension.  A bit like the old Paper Tole effect.  You can tell in the photo how it looks.

I stamped the cake from Happy Birthday To You on white card 3 times.  I used Basic Gray ink as it is a little softer.  I coloured just the cake on one, and then the flowers on the other 2 cakes.  They were coloured with Stampin’ Blends (Flirty Flamingo and Old Olive).  The cake was coloured with Mint Macaron.

On one of the cakes (the one without the flowers coloured in), I cut the full cake out with the Birthday Dies.  On the other two cakes I cut the flowers out with the flower die.  On one of these diecut flowers I trimmed off the top flower to have just a single flower.

Then diecut some leaves from Old Olive and Mint Macaron and adhere them behind the flowers before assembling them together.  You will find it so much easier – trust me!! 😉

After all the diecutting you can layer the cake together using Dimensionals to layer up the flowers.  The full diecut flowers was layered on to the diecut cake and then the single flower was raised up on top of these flowers.  If that makes sense?  So there were 3 layers with the top flowers.  Check the photo below to see it.

To finish the card I adhered a piece of the Perennial Essence paper on to a white card mat and then they were adhered to a Flirty Flamingo card base.

A rectangle from Vellum was cut from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  To adhere this to the card I added a little Snail Adhesive  behind where the cake would be and then the cake was adhered on to the Vellum with Dimensionals.

The little sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings and cut with the cute little shape in the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

Just a reminder that the Stamping Around The World are put together by 12 Demonstrators from around the world.  You can receive these tutorials as a Thank you for ordering from one of us.  Or you can purchase the Tutorials from me for $20 AUD.

Now you can head off on the Hop again.  Click on the little blue frog below and it will send you to the links.

Happy Hopping,

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #95 – USING THE BIRTHDAY DIES!

Wednesday’s WOW! #95 – Today I am giving you some Tips using the Birthday Dies.

The Birthday Dies are now available as co-ordinating products with the Happy Birthday To You Stamp set from Sale-A-Bration.

When I went to use them for the first time it concerned me as the cake stand doesn’t line up with the cake stamp set.  It is a different shape.  That’s ok.  Just trim off under the base of the stand.  So you are cutting the leg of the stand off.

Then it’s easier to adhere the cake stand on to the cake.

I love these dies as they give a lot more layering to the set.  You have the 2 different leaf shape dies and there are 2 on each die making it quicker to cut.  They cut so easily too.

The other larger shape in the set is for the flowers.  To use this one, stamp your cake on your card then also stamp the cake on another piece of card.  After colouring the flowers on the additional piece you can diecut them and layer them on to your card.  You could have several layers of flowers by stamping and die-cutting them several times.

Below is part of a card I have made recently with the stamps and the dies.  I can’t show you the full card as this is my card for the Stamping Tutorials for this month.  It gives you a peak though. 🙂  I haven’t used the flower shape dies on this card but lots of leaves and I have cut the cake stand too.

I think this is a really great stamp set to begin with but having the dies now really adds to this set.  I love all the layering you can create.

The Happy Birthday To You set is a free Sale-A-Bration choice with orders over $90 AUD.  

Another tip: Purchase the Birthday Dies ($50 AUD), add another stamp set or ink/card to make your total to $90 then choose the Happy Birthday To You set for FREE.  Winner! you can get both together. AND – ordering with me you will receive the Tutorial Bundle with the card above as one of the projects. 🙂

Have a great day,

Jenny

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

SAILING HOME MINI CARD!

Today I have a mini card for you using the Sailing Home bundle.  I received this one in a Team swap last month I think.  I am not sure who it was from sorry. 🙂

This is a mini Card measuring about 7.5cm x 7.5cm (3″x3″)

From what I can tell with this card the sky was sponged in the top part of the card using Pool Party ink. The water was created using the lines in the High Tide set.  It’s great when the stamp sets co-ordinate with each other. I think it was given a light wash with the Aquapainter to blend out the colours. The lighthouse was stamped separately and then diecut and coloured in small sections of it.

It’s a sweet card so Thank You to whoever made this card.

Come back tomorrow so you can see more cards using the Sailing Home stamps and the co-ordinating Smooth Sailing dies.
