Kylie’s International Highlights

Thank you once again to everyone who voted for me last month.  I got to be part of the Top Ten Winners Blog Hop.  If you didn’t catch the amazing creations, please check them out.  Where does the time go?  In saying that it is that time again where I am once again playing along with Kylie’s International Blog Highlights.

This month the theme is “Sympathy“.  It is not something we like to create but as I am down a little on this type of card, I have been creating a few for an upcoming event, so perfect timing.  The only problem was which one to showcase for this hop?

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.

What 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 Vote for Me Heretalented 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 #3!

For my card today I’ve used the gorgeous new “Painted Harvest” Stamp Set from the 2017Painted-Harvest---Sympathy- Holiday Catalogue.  Perfect for all occasions.  I’m not sure if you can get pink sunflowers but I like the colours – Powder Pink & Flirty Flamingo.  The leaves are Pear Pizzazz, while the sentiment is in Chocolate Chip.

I’ve teamed the inks up with Chocolate Chip, Powder Pink & Whisper White CS.  The large piece of Whisper white has been embossed with the Layered Leaves Dynamic TIEF.

To grab your free tutorial, click on the link above the photo.  It includes all product used in the project along with measurements (metric & imperial).

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’

Have a Cozy Christmas

On Saturday, we had a bit of a Play Day with some of the ladies from our Technique Class as well as my volunteer class.  It Rose-wmwas a fun day & all went home with a couple of Christmas Cards, Box & Gift Bag of goodies.

Everyone who came along had to create a card, 3-d project or something that would be quick, easy & fun.  Amazing how we all start out with the same kit but all end up with different looks.

In fact, they are asking when the next one will be.  I intend on holding more of these next year plus all day workshops, but more on that at a later day.

Our first card was created by Rose & this is my interpretation of it.  We used the new “Hearth & Home” Dies, “Wonderland” & “Cozy Christmas” Stamp Sets plus the lovely “Softly Falling” EF.  The only thing I have done is use Blackberry Bliss CS & the trees from “Wonderland” Stamp Set.  This is Rose’s card above.

To create your own card, please click on the link above the card.

Don’t forget to pop back in a couple of days for more of our creations.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Embossing Folders

029 (2)Today’s card is another we did in our Technique Class – Embossing Folders.  There are so many ways of using your EF instead of just running it through the Big Shot.  In our class we create 2 cards as well as a sample to take home for your Technique Books.

Next time you dig out your Folders to use on a card, look at it & try & use it a different way.  It will open up a whole new world for you & you will look at your Folders in a different light.

Our Stamp Set was Polka-Dot & Pieces.  Once which I think I purchased in error & had never used, but I love it.  So many possibilities!

In our card today we didn’t actually run our Folder through the Big Shot, instead we sponged different colours inks around the flat side of the folder, sprayed a little water & then pressed it flat onto our card.  Perfect for a background!  The fun part about this was that everyone had a different background, even though we used the same technique!  When I demonstrated the technique, I even got a different background to the one in today’s card.

EFIn fact, I didn’t even do this Technique on Watercolour Paper, it was done on our ordinary Whisper White CS.  I wanted to see how different it would be to use the Whisper White CS & what result I would get.  I must say I am happy with it!

 

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

By the Seashore

I found a lovely little card on Pinterest with the colours of Pistachio Pudding & Smokey Slate. I have spent a 20140715_143507acouple of hours trying to find it but do apologise for not being able to give you credit. I have put my own spin on it & well, looking at the card now, it doesn’t resemble the one I took my inspiration from.  Strange how that can happen hey.

I love this stamp set & am so very glad it didn’t retire. I ended up posting this to a good friend of mine the other day who is having a bit of a hard time. I just thought it would be very different to flowers, etc.  I only hope she likes it!

20140715_143545aIt would make for a very good male card too by just changing out the colours.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the images direct onto a piece of Very Vanilla CS using Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding & Smokey Slate Inks, prior to attaching with Multipurpose Glue.
