It’s seems like only just the other day we had a colour challenge!  This year is already flying past so quickly!!

We have another great colour combo for you this week!  It’s Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay, Sweet Sugarplum and Lemon Lime Twist.

I went with the Cake Soiree stamp set but decided to use the large present stamp and not the cakes for something different.

I stamped in Memento Ink and coloured the image using markers.  I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink and cut out the circles from the Layering Circle framelits.  The sweet little butterfly is from the matching Sweet Cake Framelits.

I love the clean and simple look of this card.

Spring Planter

Well, it’s not Spring here at the moment, (in fact, this been a really hot, humid summer) but you can always appreciate pretty flowers!

I love Bronwyn’s Spring Planter Box Card with it’s pretty array of flowers.

Addinktive Design team button - December 2017

I decided to use the Wood Textures DSP stack for the planter box part.  I then used the Petals & More thinlits for the leaves.  I then used the May Flowers framelits and the matching Falling Flowers stamp set.  I used the Subtles collection cardstock to create a pretty bunch.  These colours look so lovely together.

I made a slight mistake in that I got stuck into attaching the flowers and then realised that I had used the bottom of the planter so the pieces to attach the flowers are lower down.  I had used fast fuse so there was no undoing!  That stuff sticks well!

This tutorial is great to follow, and so easy to understand.  Just click here to purchase it today.

These flowers are perfect for me as my pussy cats like to eat any flowers that come into the house!

I hope you like my planter box!  Please leave me a comment and let me know.

Happy Stamping

Welcome back to another Colour Challenge with Colour Inkspiration!  And Happy Valentine’s Day!  Hope you taking the opportunity to tell your loved ones how much you love them.

We have a really lovely combination for you this week with Powder Pink, Melon Mambo, Pool Party and Island Indigo.

ci27Whenever I get ready to create my card for a colour challenge, I get out all the colours in cardstock for inspiration.  I then decide upon the stamp set and go from there.  So I started with the Butterfly from the Beautiful Da stamp set.  I embossed in silver embossing powder on watercolour paper and then coloured with my aqua painter, using Powder Pink, Melon Mambo and Pool Party.

I then layered the card base of Island Indigo with Powder Pink and the watercolour background.  I then cut out a scallop circle and a stitched circle and stamped the sentiment from the Sale-a-bration Happy Wishes stamp set, which I then embossed in silver.

I added a Powder Pink shimmer ribbon behind the circles.

I hope you are inspired by my card today.  Head on over to Monique for more inspiration!

Where’s the Mermaid?

Well it’s been a little while but I’m back creating with the AddInktive Design Team!   Bronwyn has been busy creating lots of fabulous tutorial’s and we shall be seeing many more this year as she has retired from her “real” job and will be focusing on her SU business.  (I wish I could too!!, Jealous much!!)

Addinktive Design team button - December 2017

So I wanted to have a play with the new Mermaid Shaker Box card that Bronwyn has created.  Check it out here.

I don’t have the Myths and Magic suite so I went through my 2018 Occasions catalogue to see what I could use instead.  I decided to use the Flying Home stamp set which I received for free at Centerstage (a leadership event) at Onstage in November.

I recently purchased the Naturally Eclectic card overlays which are in the 2017-2018 Annual catalogue.  I had not noticed these until now and they are lovely!!  They are 4″ x 6″ acetate overlays in white and gold.

I used the new Gold Glitter flakes as part of my shaker card.  Now make sure that you seal it up firmly otherwise those flakes can go everywhere!!  (Just ask me how I know!!)

I stamped the images from the Flying Home stamp set onto the Thick Whisper White card stock so that it was a bit firmer when I fussy cut it out.  I coloured it in with the watercolour pencils and blender pen.

add-7a

Oh and I used the Naturally Eclectic DSP as well.

add-7b

The sentiment comes from the Bird Banter stamp set and I used the Classic Label punch (but re-punched the ends so that I had a banner end).

If you would like to make this gorgeous box card, you can purchase the tutorial from Bronwyn, here.

I’d love to hear what you think of this card.  Oh and in case you were worried how this fits into an envelope, it does fold flat and fits into a standard size envie.

Happy Stamping

ESAD 2017 Holiday Catalogue Fancy Folds and 3d projects Blog Hop

Welcome to the ESAD 2017 Holiday Catalogue Fancy Folds & 3D Projects blog hop!  You may have come from Courtenay Heuston or be starting here with me!

I have created a couple of projects for you tonight.  I wanted to have a play with the Lovely Laurel thinlits so I decided to create a set of napkin holders for my Christmas table.

I created a circle of Silver foil and cut out the wreath from the thinlits in Tranquil Tide.  I then cut out the banner in Gold Glimmer paper.  (Because it’s Christmas and you need sparkle!!)  Now if you could do nice, fancy writing and write a name on it, or you can add a stamp from the Christmas Happiness and cut it out using the Lovely Laurel thinlit.

Of course, if you are having Christmas dinner at your place, you might be wanting to send an invite out.  So I create a matching card.

If you follow me, you’ll notice that I never decorate the inside of my cards!  But, on this card, I did the inside first!

I created the wreath and the banner as per the place holder.  I wanted to add a bigger sentiment into the middle of the card, so I stamped the sentiment from Merry Little Labels using markers.  I then placed it into the middle of the card and gently folded it.  Once I had a fold line on the circle, I then scored it and attached it to the banner.

For the front of my card, I used the Good Tidings stamp set.  I love the rustic look of the holly leaves.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects for tonight’s hop.  Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.  Next up is my friend, Peta Stephen.

Merry Patterns and Chocolate Holders

Did I get your attention with the word Chocolate?  I hope so!!

I have another tutorial from Brownyn Eastley to share with you today, the Christmas Chocolate holder.  Check it out here.

I’ve used the Merry Patterns stamp set and the cute deer that is a part of it.  Did you know that you can earn this stamp set for free this month when you have a workshop and have over $450 in sales.

This tutorial is easy to follow. As always, Bronwyn’s instructions are clear and easy.  These instructions allow you to create two holders at once.

I used the Be Merry DSP from the Annual Catalogue as I like the red, green and white colour combo.  And that way, I could also use the Quilted Christmas ribbon.

I did have to do a bit of fussy cutting on the deer but I think it makes it pop.  I did add an eye to the deer with just a black dot using a marker.  I also put Wink of Stella over the deer but it doesn’t show in the photo.

I love the look of the scallop circle on the inside. You can add in a chocolate but I didn’t have any at home that would fit into the slot.

These holders would make great teacher gifts, class gifts or a little extra gift on the table on Christmas day.

Happy Stamping

ESAD Holiday Catalogue Hop

I’m so excited to be a part of the ESAD 2017 Holiday Catalogue blog hop!  And to be sharing a couple of my favourite Holiday projects with you!

So you might be starting the hop with me, or have come from the talented Ellen Woodbridge.  Just make sure you keep following the next button to see all the amazing inspiration from the Holiday Catalogue.

There are lots of fabulous stamp sets and products in this catalogue!!  I decided to create my first project using the Good Tidings stamp set.

I started off with using the Ruffled Dynamic Textured Impressions embossing folder which I just received this week to add some texture to the background.  I then stamped up a piece using the holly stamps from the set.  I stamped off once using garden green for the solid image and then didn’t for the second image.

I then stamped the sentiment from the set in Cherry Cobbler and cut it out using the circle framelits.  I also did a silver foil circle and a scalloped circle in Cherry Cobbler.  And wait for it, I USED washi tape!!  I used the new Year of Cheer Specialty washi tape (which is so lovely!!) and a piece from the Basics Pack 2 washi tape.  I will get through my washi 2″ at a time!!

For my second card, I wanted to do something other than Christmas.  The Painted Harvest stamp set is beautiful!!  When I first saw it, I wasn’t convinced, but seeing many demonstrator samples over the past month has made me change my mind and fall in love with it.

I love that you can do so many different colour combinations for the flowers, however today, I’ve gone fairly traditional.  I started with the centre of the flower using Early Espresso.  I then used Daffodil Delight for the solid image and then used Pumpkin Pie for the next image and then did my favourite thing, fussy cutting.  NOT!

I stamped the leaves on the cardstock in Old Olive and the sentiment in Early Espresso.

This is a quick and easy card to re-create.

I hope you have enjoyed my cards tonight.  Next up is the amazing Mandy.

Make sure you leave me a comment and let me know what you think of my projects!  A list of the participants is below in case you get lost on the hop.

Happy Stamping
