Day 12 – Animal Expedition

 

Animal-Expedition-1---CloseG’Day Stampers,

Sorry I missed yesterday – life just goes that way sometimes.

So, today I am sharing with you the 2nd card using the fun Animal Expedition DSP whichAnimal Expedition - 19.25 is part of the “Buy 3, Get 1 FREE” promotion.  There are only 3 days left to take advantage of this.

This suite is close to my heart as it brings back so many happy memories.  My Dad worked out of town during the week which meant he left Sunday arvos & would be home Friday night.

We would all “help” him to back his swag Sunday although looking back I think we were more of a hindrance than a help but he didn’t seem to mind.

Anyhow, usually when he arrived home on the Friday night, he would sometimes carefully place his ?moving” swag on the floor which meant there was something usually Animal-Expedition-1---Insidalive in it.  With excited anticipation we would gently unwrap it to find a joey wrapped up safe & sound fully aware that its mother had been killed.  Dad never went past a dead animal on the side of the road without checking for a pouch.   He still stops & checks to this day which means I now do the same!

Our yard was always full of orphaned joeys, lambs, birds, etc but my favourite was & still is the kangaroo.  Imagine my surprise when SU! brought out this fantastic Animal Expedition Suite!  I think it was just for me!

Anyhow, I decided to keep the card simple although I’ve used a few bright colours of Berry Burst & Lemon Lime Twist to create my card.  I’ve toned the colours down by adding a little Vellum over the top of the DSP.

Day 11 – Animal Expedition

Animal-Expediation---Close-

Today is Day 11 & welcome to the fun Animal Expedition DSP.  This paper suits everyone from babies, boys, girls through to males & females.  I do hope you are enjoying seeing all the different ways of cutting your gorgeous DSP!

If you want to go back to Day 1 where I played with the Petal Promenade DSP,Animal Expedition - 19.25 be sure to click here.  All the cards have tutorials to go with them.  There are a few days left for the “Buy 3, Get 1 Free” DSP Promotion.

I teamed the card with Crumb Cake, Whisper White & Shaded Spruce Cardstock.  The sentiment from Sunshine Sayings has been stamped in Shaded Spruce Ink.

Stampin’ Up! take a lot of the guess work out of matching the DSP colours to Cardstock as they are listed with the name of the DSP.  Don’t you just love that?

Tomorrow will see yet another card using the same DSP so be sure to check back.

Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop

DSP---Share-What-You-Love--

G’Day Stampers,

Today I am taking part in a brand new blog hop, well new to me although I have been a member for a few months.  It is a group of SU! Demos from all over the world sharing July---DSPtheir love of Stampin’ Up!.  You are able to join us if you like, but we do ask that you are a current SU! Demo & that you use current products, no matter what skill level you may be.

Our theme this month is our Favourite DSP.  There are so many gorgeous new DSP in the catalogue that it was very hard to choose.  I literally just closed my eyes & let my fingers do the “walking” so to speak & they come up the gorgeous Share What You Love Specialty DSP.

Love-What-You-Do-1My card is one I often create as I love the layout & it is just so quick & simple.  It looks great cut into how may pieces you wish although you have to ensure you match them up when adhering to Cardstock.

To create my card I team it up with the Pearlized Doilies & the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls – So Saffron.  The DSP has been layered onto Basic Black Cardstock & then to the So Saffron Base Card.

My 2nd card is created exactly the same way using another piece of the same DSP.

By clicking on the link below, you will be able to download your free tutorial to create your own card.  The tutorial includes a list of supplies & measurements (metric & imperia

As from Monday next week I will be showcasing our gorgeous DSP with lots of lovely ideas each day, so be sure to pop on back to check them out!

Tranquil Textures Suite


c2ab7-international2bhighlights2bheader2bvote2bfav

G’Day Stampers.  It is that time once again where I am taking part in Kylie’s International Highlights Hop for July.  Where does the time go?  It only seems like yesterday that we were hopping along with Kylie

This month the theme is – TRAVEL.

As I had the Tranquil Textures Suite still sitting on my desk from a project I had created, Sea-of-Textures---InsideI decided to challenge myself & come up with something using what was in front of me – scraps of this & that.  After seeing a couple of small squares of the DSP & not wanting to toss them in the bin I sort of then played for a bit until I was happy with the final result.  Sometimes you just have to go with the flow.

Mind you, the Sea of Textures Stamp Set has the perfect sentiment for Travel, don’t you think?

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 talented 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.

Global Stampin’ Friends Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop & thank you for visiting.  logoWe are a group of card makers from all over the world who love to create.  This month the challenge is all about the spanking, brand new Annual Catalogue.  If you haven’t heard by now the new catalogue went live yesterday so be sure to contact your nearest Demonstrator for a copy.

You have come via the very talented Sharon who does amazing work especially with her scrapbooking.

Dragonfly-Dreams-1---InsideFor my card today I opted to go very simple & showcase a couple of the new In Colours – Lovely Lipstick & Pineapple Punch Inks & boy do they have a “punch”.   I will say I am not a Brights’ girl, but I am loving these colours.  I teamed the Inks with Basic Black, Whisper White & Lovely Lipstick Cardstock along with a set that has carried over – Dragonfly Dreams.

 

My dragonfly has been heat embossed using VersaMark & Clear Emboss Powder.  I love embossing my shapes this way as it sort of packs a bit of a “punch” to your projects.

By clicking on the link above the photo, you will be able to download a free tutorial to create your own version.  The tutorial includes a list of products used, measurements (metric & imperial) plus a tutorial for the card.

Seaside Shore

Seaside-Shore-1---Close-Up

Today’s card is the last of the Retiform Cards we created over a month in our Class a few weeks ago.  It is using one of the sets retiring at the end of the month.  I will miss Seaside Shore but of course SU! never seem to disappoint as there is always something to replace them by.

You can find the tutorial for the Retiform Technique by clicking on the Technique Page.  Be warned though it is very addictive & no 2 cards will ever be the same!

Magical Day #2

Magical-Day-1---Close-Up

Today I am sharing with you our 2nd card we created yesterday using the  Magical Day Bundle from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.

This Bundle is retiring at the end of May so best to grab it while you can.

Magical Day

Magical-Day-Suite---Close-U

I created this card when the 2018 Occasions Catalogue come out.  It was planned for one of our classes but never thought we would get round to creating it.  Well today is the day as we are finally going to create using the Magical Day Bundle.

As well as the Bundle which includes the Magical Day Stamp Set & the Magical Mates Magical-Day-Suite---InsideFramelits, I wanted to showcase the gorgeous Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape which has lots of sparkle to it.   Unfortunately this is one of the sets retiring at the end of June so it is best you grab it now before it is gone & gone forever.

Be sure to check back in a couple of days to see the card for the girls using the same Bundle.

Just Getting Started Bundle

Love-what-You-Do-3---Close-

G’Day Stampers,

A couple of days ago I shared with you a card I cased from the Just Getting Started Bundle which is perfect for you for that exact reason – if you are just getting started!  Today is another card created using the same Bundle.  Don’t you love it when you can create different cards but using the same supplies except for a little change here & there?

Included in this Bundle is the Love What You Do Stamp Set, Old Olive Ink, Grapefruit Love-What-You-Do-3---InsideGrove Ink (new In Colour), Clear Block E, Very Vanilla Cardstock AND Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes.  All I’ve done is scattered a few Pearl Basic Jewels around the front & added a small bow using Linen Thread.

The above products will be available once the new catalogue goes live, but the Bundle will not!

I have actually created this card as part of the CASEing Tuesday challenge which is new to me.  Last week it was the card on Page 37 of the Annual Catalogue.  Don’t forget to use your catalogues for inspiration.  You will be amazed at what you can create.
