Inspire.Create.Challenge 100 – Celebration!

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog post today showcasing my Design Team project for the new Inspire.Create.Challenge.

It’s the 100th challenge so this time we are all making projects with a celebration theme!

Stop by the Inspire.Create.Challenges blog to see all the Design Team projects and upload your entry. We’d love to see your creations.

I have chosen to work with the Create with Friends stamp set and some fun party colours!

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

The Stitched Stars dies were perfect to add some celebratory details. The die cuts were lightly inked using blending brushes.

This example also has some embossing in the background for even more texture fun to this layout.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

I’ve made a simple set of Halloween greeting cards using the Cute Halloween designer series paper.

The monochromatic design allows some freedom to add some fun colours as accents.

In this case I’ve used Highland Heather to stamp the greeting and little bats from the Little Delights Stamp Set.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

The Highland Heather ribbon adds texture and helps tie together the overall design.

I made these samples with the other multi coloured side to the papers.

This time I stamped the sentiment in Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive and used the black and white gingham ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

My project features the Little Delights Stamp Set. This is a lovely set for all occasions.

I’ve tried something different with the layout of these cards, choosing to wrap the ribbon from top to bottom.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

Using a white cards base kept the design light and fresh.

The Genial Gems were the perfect finishing touch for this card.

I used the Wonderful Gems on the yellow card.

This sample uses So Saffron, Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider inks.

I chose this fun stamp set to work with to make this bright citrussy card!

A combination of two step stamping and Stampin’ Blends were used to colour the yummy cocktails!

Wink of Stella added some sparkle to the ice cubes.

I chose the Bloom and Grow stamp set to create my project.

The images are fantastic for colouring with Stampin’ Blends.

This stamp set is retiring, so get it while you can… When it’s gone it’s gone!

The softer colour palette gives the design a completely different look.

I have taken the opportunity to showcase some retiring favourites!

The metallic elements I chose are Champagne Foil, and some metallic edged ribbon.

This sample uses Petal Pink and Rich Razzleberry with the Rooted in Nature stamp set and dies.

I love the detail of the Many Medallions dies. The foil looks amazing die cut this way.

I chose Very Vanilla as the base to bring through the warm tone of the foil and the inks.

This combo uses Blushing Bride and Blackberry Bliss!

Inspire.Create #054

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Every other Monday I share my project that I have used as my entry for the Inspire.Create challenge.

This time it’s a theme challenge. The design team have made some wonderful samples as inspiration. You can see them here.

And this is what I created!

This challenge was the perfect excuse to use the Christmas Layers Die.

I originally thought I would use white on white but the detail didn’t shine as much as I wanted.

Instead I chose a super bright background and sponged the card stock with Melon Mambo ink.

The sentiment was also stamped with Melon Mambo Ink.

Stitched Rectangles dies were used to cut the sentiment and some vellum.

These were adhered with dimensionals and embellished with Melon Mambo glitter enamel dots.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Every other Monday I share my project that I have used as my entry for the Inspire.Create challenge.

This time it’s a theme challenge. The design team have made some wonderful samples as inspiration. You can see them here.

And this is what I created!

I have used the Beautiful Day stamp set for a simple feminine card.

The butterfly was coloured with watercolour pencils and a blender pen.

The image is easy to cut out. The wings were shaped with a bone folder. Dimensionals were placed behind the wings to keep the shape.

For a multi coloured sentiment, the stamp was inked with Stampin’ Write Markers.

Double dimensionals added extra lift against the butterfly.

Inspire.Create #045

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Every other Monday I share my project that I have used as my entry for the Inspire.Create challenge.

This time it’s a theme challenge.

The design team have made some wonderful samples as inspiration. You can see them here.

I have used the emboss resist technique for my project;

I picked out the Stargazing stamp set…. I thought the stars would be perfect for this technique.

First, I applied Balmy Blue ink to some white card stock where the sentiment would be. I then used versamark ink to stamp the images. These were embossed with clear powder.

I then added Pacific Point and Night of Navy ink over the top. A damp cloth rubbed away the excess ink.

The panel was die cut with a Stitched Rectangle and layered on to Whisper White card stock.

A Night of Navy card base was embossed with the Swirls & Curls embossing folder before adding the topper with dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

Pootlers Blog Hop – New Catalogue 2019

Hello Everyone,

Today’s project is part of a team blog hop where we have all used our shiny new products from Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalogue!

This one is terrific with some gorgeous stamp sets, bundles and full suites of products to choose from.

My project showcases product from the Magnolia Lane Suite. We had an enormous Magnolia in our front garden when I was a child and I always remember how stunning the flowers were.

The Designer Series Paper has been used as the background for my card. It is so lovely I wanted this to remain a feature.

The topper was kept small using the Stitched Rectangles dies. A larger layer was added by die cutting vellum, so the pattern could still be seen.

The white panel was stamped with a sentiment in black ink, and embellished using the small Magnolia image from the stamp set with Gray Granite ink.

Some silver thread was looped between the layers for some extra texture.

Spring Flowers

Hello Everyone,

This morning’s project is for a Facebook theme challenge from Jill. She has chosen spring flowers for the challenge.

I picked out the In Every Season stamp set and worked with the little bluebells.

I started by die cutting some Pool Party and vellum card stocks with the Stitched Rectangles dies.

The vellum was then embossed with the Layered Leaves folder and adhered to the Pool Party piece. Adhesive was applied knowing it would be covered by other elements of the card. Some Polka Dot Tulle was added to the piece before adding to the card.

The flowers were stamped with Stazon Ink to allow the use of watercolour pencils. These were then fussy cut and adhered on the left hand side. A small bow was secured over the untidy stems.

The sentiment was stamped and die cut. This adhered with dimensionals. Some matching glitter enamel dots completed the card.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

I would love to be your demonstrator.
