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.

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’

Petal-Passion-DSP---Notes

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.

G’Day Stampers,

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.

Remarkable-You-x-2---Thank-

Remarkable You

Remarkable-You---Thank-You-

G’Day Stampers,

I trust you all took advantage of the 24 hours sale yesterday & will again for the remainder of the week.  I know I did & can’t wait to create with some of the new products on its way to me.

Today’s card is one of a set of Thank You Cards I’ve created with the lovely Remarkable You Stamp Set which was on the 24 hour sale yesterday.  I do apologise that I don’t have a tutorial for you to download as it went off in the mail yesterday.

I stamped my image direct onto a piece of Very Vanilla CS in Memento Tuxedo Ink, coloured with Stampin’ Blends Rich Razzleberry & Daffodil Delight.  I applied Clear Wink of Stella to the bottom parts of the petals.  I love it when I can use 2 different colours to colour my flowers – it seems to make them more real somehow.

The sentiment is from One Big Meaning Stamp Set & was stamped direct onto the card front in Memento Tuxedo Ink.  I created a “frame” around the images with the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker before layering onto a piece of Daffodil Delight CS & then to the Base Card – Very Vanilla Note Card.

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

If you pop back tomorrow I will share with you another of the cards created using the same set & supplies.

Until next time, Happy Stampn’

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.

If you click on the link above the card, you will be able to download a tutorial so that you can create your own.  It includes all the measurements (metric & imperial) along November-2017with a list of products.
