Oh, So Eclectic

Oh-So-Eclectic--Jenny---Clo

G’Day Stampers,

Today’s card is one I created for a friend who celebrated her 60th birthday last week.  Thanks to Jenni’s dress for the inspiration!

I must apologise for not having a tutorial for you to download but I will try & remember how I created it.  First up, I’ve used the Oh So Eclectic Bundle which includes the Oh So Eclectic Stamp Set & the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.

To create my card I sponged a piece of Whisper White CS with Crushed Curry, Night ofOh-So-Eclectic---Jenny---In Navy & Elegant Eggplant Inks using a Stamping Sponge.  This piece was then adhered behind a piece of Whisper white CS which had been die cut using the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.  It was then layered onto a piece of Crushed Curry CS & then to the Base Card – Elegant Eggplant.

The large flower was stamped onto a piece of Whisper White CS in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink before applying Elegant Eggplant Ink with a Sponge Dauber.  The inner petals were highlighted with Night of Navy Ink using a Blender Pen before finishing off with Clear Wink of Stella & die cutting with the matching die from Eclectic Layers Thinlits.

Oh-So-Eclectic-Jenny-Close-The 2 flowers were once again stamped onto a piece of Whisper White CS.  The first flower was lightly shaded with Crushed Curry Ink using a Sponge Dauber.  Again, the lower inner petals were highlighted with Crushed Curry & a Blender Pen before being die cut with the matching die from the Oh So Eclectic Thinlits & Clear Wink of Stella applied.

I used the same technique for the 2nd flower but this time using Night of Navy & Elegant Eggplant Inks.

The leaves were die cut with the Eclectic Layers Thinlits from a piece of Whisper White before Garden Green Ink applied with a Sponge Dauber.

The flowers & leaves were arranged onto the Card Front before being adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The sentiment is from the Bunch of Blossoms Stamp Set & has been stamped direct onto the Card Front in Memento Tuxedo Black.

To complete the card I scattered Regals Candy Dots (retired) around the Card Front.  You could easily replace the Dots with current products & colouring with the Stampin’ Blends.

I’m happy to say Jenni loved her card & hopefully you do too.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Let’s Celebrate Your Day

Bunch-of-Blossoms-1---Close

I’ve been quite on my blog for a little – family stuff going on but hopefully I can find my creative side once again & get back into my regular blogging.

To begin with, I cased a sketch from a challenge, didn’t get it posted in time but thought I would share it with you anyhow.  It is a very simple card but one I hope will inspire you.  I’ve kept lots of white on the card as I wanted the colours to be the WOW factor.Bunch-of-Blossoms-1---Insid  In fact, the card could be used for a number of occasions.

I’ve used the lovely “Bunch of Blossoms” Stamp Set along with the corresponding Blossom Builder Punch.   I wanted to create something bright & happy which is why I’ve used Daffodil Delight & Old Olive Inks.  As I wanted lots of white to highlight the colours, I opted for Chocolate Chip & Whisper White CS – love these colours together.

Stampin’ Blends are Here….

You've-Got-This-1---Close-U

By now you are probably aware that Stampin’ Blends are now available for everyone.  I have to say that I am loving them & so will you!

My card is one I sent off in the mail yesterday to thank a friend (one I went to school with & haven’t seen for many years) for a special service we attended a couple of days ago.  I do hope she likes it!

The card has actually been cased from Page 10I of the Annual Catalogue.  Mind you, it You've-Got-This-1---Insidedoesn’t look anything like the original but it was a good starting point as I wanted it to be happy & bright, plus I wanted to play with the Stampin’ Blends.

To create my card, I used the Light Calypso Coral to colour the flowers followed by the Dark Daffodil Delight & then the Light Daffodil Delight.  I’m loving how they turned out.  The leaves were created using the leaf image from Painted Harvest & punched with the coordinating Leaf Punch.  Both are available in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue & are available as a Bundle.

Although I have used a couple of items that have retired (easily replaced by current product) I’m very happy with my card today, but please let me know what you think.

Technique Tuesday

You've-Got-This---Close-Up

G’Day Stampers,

It is Tuesday & that means a new technique for you to download & play with.  Remember, if you don’t have the product I’ve used on my card, use what you have on hand.  This week we are highlighting Bleaching.  What I love about this technique is that it is always changing.  My card has changed a lot since I first created it & not every petal is the same.

This is one of the cards we created a couple of weeks ago in our class.  I am happy to say the ladies loved it.  They also enjoyed playing with the technique too…..  I keep forgetting to take photos to share with you as their cards turned out beautiful.

These techniques appear on my blog every 2nd & 4th Tuesday of the month, along Technique-Layoutwith instructions for a card using the technique.  The Technique Tutorial is available for download by clicking on the Free Technique Tutorials Page, file in a folder & keep on hand to use or to refer back to at a later date.

Yes, SU! Demos are able to use them for your classes, workshops & demonstrations.  It just means that all the work is done for you, except of course your samples.

Flirty Flowers

Flirty-Flowers---Close-Up

G’Day Stampers,

I hope you all had a lovely weekend & did heaps of creating!

Today’s card has been re-created from one I did a month or so ago & have never shared with you.  It is a simple little card but one that I am happy with.  I am not sure whether it is the colours or the cute little Flirty Flowers Stamp Set.

To create today’s card I’ve used the brand new Stampin’ Blends which will be available to everyone 1 November.  Believe me, you will want them in your collection.  They are just wonderful!

I randomly stamped the images direct onto a piece of Whisper White CS in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink before proceeding to colour the main flowers with the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.  The larger leaves have been coloured with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends, but very light while the smaller ones I’ve left as they are.

For some of the smaller flowers I’ve used my Blender Pen & Melon Mambo Ink For some reason I love Daffodil Delight & Melon Mambo together especially when you add touches of Basic Black which is what I layered the Whisper White onto before layering onto a Daffodil Delight Base Card.

The sentiment is from Bunch of Blossoms & has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Oh Hello Friend

Oh-So-Eclectic---Rose-Red--

I’m sharing with you a card I created for a game we had on our Facebook Page last week.  I am a little late in posting this as I had to make a quick trip to Brisbane on the weekend.

I love the Oh So Eclectic Bundle & as it was sitting on my desk from another project I decided to go with it  I’m really happy with the way it turned out, especially the flowers as I’ve added Perfect Plum to the inner petals to highlight them a little.  Never be afraid to play & experiment with colours.  You will be surprised at how they turn out!October

Kylie’s International Highlights

The past month seems to have flown as it is that time when once again I am playing along with Kylie’s International Blog Highlights.

This month the theme is “Teacher’s Gifts“.  I don’t have any need for these gifts, but it is lovely to create something different & be out of your comfort one at the same time.

Not sure of what is Kylie’s International Highlights?   It is where Demonstrators from all around the world take part in a monthly Blog Highlight.  It’s a great way to get to know other Demonstrators & see projects using current Stampin’ Up!® product.

Vote for Me HereWhat is so different about this Blog Highlight?  YOU get to vote for your top 5 favourites.  The top ten will then get to take part in an international blog hop with Kylie & other talented successful demonstrators.

What do I do?  All you have to do is click on the “Vote for Me” photo at the side or head on over to Kylie’s Blog, click on the heart in the top right hand side of the picture.  I’m #5!

My project today is actually one that I created for one of my “Creative Classes” using theDeliightful-Daisy-Post-It-NDelightful Daisy” Suite.  This Suite is my all time favourite from the Annual Catalogue but haven’t really showcased any of the cards I’ve created.  I sometimes remember AFTER I’ve mailed the cards that I hadn’t taken any photos.

I think Post-It Note Holders are always very handy, so while creating my holder, I thought I would do something a little different & turn it into the shape of a “bag”.  The handle has been created using the gorgeous Daffodil Delight Double Stitched Ribbon.  Don’t you love it?

Seeing as though the ‘bag” was so cute, I thought it would be lovely to have a matching Delightful-Daisy-Cardcard to go with the gift, so out came the Suite once again.  I’m glad I did, as I am a little happy with the final result.

The gorgeous Petal Burst EF has been used both on the bag & the card – not sure if you can easily see it.  It finished the projects off perfectly.

I am loving the coordinating little “bag” & the card.  I do hope you do too.

Be sure to check out all the other lovely creations when you pop on over to Kylie’s Blog .  Don’t forget to go & vote for the ones you love & leave them a little love!

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
