FMS #332

Crafting-Forever-2---Close-

When I saw the sketch over at Fresh Made Sketches, I had to play along.  It is so clean & simple, but sometimes these are the hardest ones to create.  Anyhow, I think I have succeeded & yes I am still playing with the Color Theory DSP.

My card is very simple but I think it works best with this type of DSP so it fitted inuntitled perfectly with the sketch.  Thank you so much ladies for a great challenge & getting me creating out of my comfort zone.

Be sure to pop on over to FMS to check out what the design team have created along with all the lovely entries.

Kylie’s International Top Ten February Winners Blog Hop

 

I was one of the lucky ones who made it to the top ten in Kylie’s International Blog Hop last month with this card using the Petal Palette.  Because of your vote, I get to hop along with 9 other lucky Demos.  Thank you to everyone who voted for me.  It is very much appreciated.

Once again our theme is “Sale-a-Bration and Occasions Catalogue Product”..

While creating this card for the hop, it suddenly occurred to me that it could go in the Springtime-Foil-DSP---Flowemail today for a friend who is celebrating her birthday.

I am loving the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP from the SAB 2nd release & available while stocks last.  It is perfect for colouring, fussy cutting, backgrounds & just about everything else you can think of.

I’ve coloured a couple of the flowers from the DSP with Stampin’ Blends, fussy cut & adhered to the card front.  The silver bling is actually Rhinestone Basic Jewels covered with VersaMark & heat set with Silver Emboss Powder.  I wanted something a little different & to match in with this gorgeous paper.

If you click on the link above the card, you will be able to download your free tutorial to create your own card.  It includes a list of products used, measurements (metric & imperial) plus the instructions..

I was playing around with the lovely Petal Passion Suite the other day creating a couple of future classes when an idea sort of popped into my head & of course I had to go for it.  The Suite includes the lovely Petal Palette Stamp Set, Petals & More Thinlits Dies, Petal Passion DSP, Petal Passion Embellishments, Whisper White Organza Ribbon & of course the Petal Pair Embossing Folders.  I’ve used all the mentioned except for the Ribbon.Petal-Palette---Inside-Cher

I’ve kept my card all Whisper White except for touches of Cherry Cobbler which I think only highlights the Whisper White even more.

Magical Day

Magical-Day-Close-Up---Brus

Last week I challenged our FB Group to create a male card using the sketch provided.  I thought it would be a great way to get their creative juices flowing & even use it for a class or demonstration.  This is my take on the sketch.

I love the Magical Day Stamp Set in the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  The set could be used for so many different occasions, big kids & little kids.  I teamed it up with the #12---2018coordinating Myths & Magic Specialty DSP which is nearly too lovely to cut into, but cut into it I did!

The dragon has been die cut from the Specialty DSP using the Magical Mates Framelits, highlighted a little with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends before being adhered to the circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The background was created with the Gamboge & Yellow Brushos – love these Powders – by spritzing Shimmery White with water & tapping Brushos directly over the CS, allowing it to spread & setting aside to dry.

The circle is Very Vanilla & was sponged with Daffodil Delight & Tangerine Tango Inks.  I Magical-Day-Inside---Brushospritzed a tiny amount of water over the sponged area before tapping very lighting with the Gamboge Brusho.

The sentiment was stamped onto Very Vanilla in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, fussy cut & once again sponged with Daffodil Delight & Tangerine Tango Inks.

Petal-Passion---Close-Up

I’ve been playing with the Petal Passion DSP over the last couple of days.  All I can say is “WOW”.  Loving it!  I have even managed to create cards for 2 classes using the DSP & the coordinating Stamp Set – Petal Palette.  I’ve used the Watercolour Pencils to colour along with the Stampin’ Blends which is how I’ve coloured today’s card.

I cut a piece of the DSP & randomly colouring the flowers with Calypso Coral, Pink Pirouette & Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Combos.  The leaves were coloured with a Petal-Passion-Colouring---Ilittle Light Daffodil Delight & then with Old Olive Combo.  The background has been coloured in Light Pool Party.  Colouring the background made the flowers seem like they are floating.

Candy Dots were randomly scattered around the card front to finish it off but you could easily replace them with current product, eg Pearl Basic Jewels, Faceted Gems, etc.

323. Happy Birthday – Petal Passion DSP

Celebrate You – SSC171

Beautiful-Day-Pink-Close-Up

G’Day Stampers,

Today I am playing along with a challenge over at Sunday Stamps.  The challenge this week is “Pops of Pink“.  As I’ve been playing with the gorgeous “Painted with Love” Specialty DSP ” it was the perfect choice.  SSC171

I’ve kept my layout fairly simple so that I could showcase the beautiful paper as well as the flower from the “Beautiful Day” Stamp Set.

The sentiment is from the same set & was stamped direct onto the Whisper White in Memento Tuxedo Black.  I’ve used both Pink Pirouette & Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Combos to colour my flower while the leaf has been Beautiful-Day-Pink-Insidecoloured with Old Olive & Daffodil Delight.

To lift the flower away from the DSP, I added a small amount of Gold Metallic Thread which I think ties it altogether. To finish it off I added a little touch of Clear Wink of Stella to the petals.

If you click on the link below you will be able to download a free tutorial to create your own card.  The tutorials includes measurements (metric & imperial) along with a list of supplies used to create the card.

Thank you ladies for a great challenge.  Do pop along to Sunday Stamps to check out all the other lovely creations.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Narrow Note Cards

G’Day stampers,

I have been playing with the cute little Narrow Note Cards along with the Petal Passion DSP both from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  They are perfect for quick, easy cards.

I cut a piece of the DSP, coloured with Stampin’ Blends Combos of Rich Razleberry, Old Olive & Daffodil Delight (leaves). cut the DSP back to the size, adhered to a piece of Rich Razzleberry & then to the front of the Note Card.  I didn’t worry about a sentiment on the front as I like them the way they are.

How easy is that?  Do you have them on your wish list?

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Butterflies

G’Day Stampers,

If you remember I shared with you a couple of cards created using the flower from the  lovely Beautiful Day Stamp Set now available in the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  Well today, I am sharing the remaining couple of cards created using the same set but this time round I’ve used the gorgeous butterfly.

Card #1 – I stamped the butterfly in Memento Tuxedo Black ink direct onto the Note Card.  I then stamped a 2nd butterfly onto scrap Whisper White & coloured with theBeautiful Day, Stampin' Blends, Washi Tape, 2018 Occasions Catalogue Stampin’ Blends – Pink Pirouette, Daffodil Delight & Night of Navy.  It is a little bright but I think the Pink tones it down a little.  The butterfly was fussy cut & adhered over the stamped butterfly with Stampin’ Dimensionals under the wings to pop them up a little.

I applied Basic Pack 2 Washi Tape down the left hand side & across the bottom of the card.

To finish the card I randomly scattered Pearl Basic Jewels.

Beautiful-Day-5Card #2 – Has been created exactly the same way except I’ve randomly stamped the small group of flowers in Pool Party, used the Basic Pack 3 Washi Tape down the left hand side & along the bottom.

The butterfly has been coloured with the Stampin’ Blends – Pool Party, Daffodil Delight & Calypso Coral.  Not as bright as the first card but I’m happy with it just the same.

Again it was fussy cut before adhering over the stamped butterfly on the Note Card with Stampin’ Dimensionals under the wings to pop them a little.  Pearl Basic Jewels were randomly scattered around the card to finish it off.

The large flower was stamped onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS with Memento Tuxedo Black, coloured with  the Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight & Old Olive Stampin’ Blends, fussy cut & adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish the card I randomly scattered 3 Pearls Basic Jewels.

Remarkable You #3

Remarkable-You-3---Close-up

G’Day Stampers,

Today is card #3 & #4 of the set of Thank You cards I created using the Remarkable You Stamp Set.

Card #3 – I’ve kept the layout fairly simple by stamping the flower & sentiment direct onto a piece of Very Vanilla CS in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.Remarkable-You3---Thank-You

The flower has been coloured with Stampin’ BlendsPumpkin Pie & Daffodil Delight.  I’m really happy with the end result.

I layered the stamped piece of Very Vanilla CS onto a piece of Tangerine Tango & then to the Very Vanilla Note Card.

To complete the card I applied Candy Dots – Brights (retired) to the front.  You could easily replace with current Embellishments & colour with the Stampin’ Blends.

Card #4 – Exactly the same layout except for the colours.  I’ve layered the Very Vanilla CS onto a Remarkable-You---Rich-Razzlpiece of Rich Razzlebbery & then to the Base Card – Very Vanilla Not Card.

This time round, the flower has been coloured with the Stampin’ Blends – Rich Razzleberry & Old Olive.

I still have 2 more cards to share with you in the next couple of weeks.

Until next time, Happy Stampn’
