Fabulous Flamingo - SDBH Case the Catty

Today I am playing along with the Stampin Dreams Blog Hop where we are Casing the Catalogue. My inspiration came from Page 101 of the Stampin' Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue where I love the perspective of the card looking into the circle with that flowers on the side. I have substituted the flower for our beautiful Fabulous Flamingo stamp set.


I started by choosing my colours and of course pinks were in order with Berry Burst and Powder Pink but I changed it up a bit with a touch is Sweet Sugarplum. I took all these colours card stock and the circles from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and cut descending circles with the Big Shot, to create the perspective of looking into the card rather than it jumping off the surface. Using the water and grass stamps also from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set I added in them Marina Mist and Wild Wasabi. The layers were adhered together and then using Stampin' Dimensionals to attached to a Thick Whisper White card base. To stamp the flamingo I started with the most complete image in stamped off Berry Burst, the solid body in Power Pink ink and finally the body and leg outlines in Early Espresso. Then I hand cut out the image and attached it using Stampin' Dimentionals. I finished off the front of the card by stamping the sentiment in Sweet Sugarplum ink onto Whisper White card stock and flagged the ends with the Triple Banner punch. I also finished off the inside if the card with the stitched circles left over from the front of that card adding another sentiment from the same stamp set in Berry Burst ink.

Pieces & Patterns with Pick a Pattern Paper Watercolor card

I posted THIS card the other week and while I had scraps and my supplies out on my desk I made another. I love how busy bright and different this card is.


I took some Watercolor Paper and stamped some of the elements from the Pieces & Patterns in Basic Grey Archival, Lemon Lime Twist, Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo inks. I used Stampin' Write Markers in the above colours to colour the flowers and spritzed the whole piece with water to make the ink bleed and filled in some of the blank speaks with the dot stamp with the Basic Grey Ink and matted on Peekaboo Peach cards stock. I also did some spritzing on the Sentiment I coloured with Lemon Lime Twist Stampin' Write makers and lightly spritzed the stamp before stamping in onto Watercolor Paper which I punched the end with the Triple Banner Punch. The base of the card was made with a matted of Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper (which coordinates with the stamp set!) with Lemon Lime Twist card stock and attached to a Thick Whisper White Card base, adding the watercolour piece directly to the patterned paper and the sentiment piece on dimensionals.

Large Number Framelits, Shaving Cream and Embossing Paste 21st Card

I was voted to make this very special card by my family for my cousin who turned 21 yesterday. I checked the theme for the party and it was a beach a theme which was perfect as recently in a Team Meeting we did shaving foam technique with Dapper Denim and Pool Party reinkers so it went perfectly with this card for the water of the ocean.

 

I was inspired by Jennifer McGuire using the Z-Fold card design to make a portrait fold out card. I did add an extra little flap on the back so the card stands up all in Soft Sky card stock. To decorate the card I started with the background and used the NEW Embossing Paste from Stampin' Up! with the cloud mask from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks, while this was drying I did my stamping (the paste dried quicker than the time it took to prep the rest) I trimmed a piece of Vellum, the shaving cream piece and Sahara Sand card stock pieces to the width of the card and tore the tops of them to mimic the waves sea and sand. the Sahara Sand card stock piece is stamped with the dots stamp from the Timeless Texture stamp set in Sahara sand ink and the Grass stamp from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in Always Articoke ink and attached them to front flap of the card. The numbers were die cut in the Big Shot using the Large Number Framelits from Dapper Denim and Sahara Sand card stock layered then together and added under the sand layer. The happy birthday stamp came from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set in Dapper Denim ink and the frame also from the same stamp set in Sahara Sand ink and punched out using the coordinating Classic Label Punch. I added Wink of Stellar to the numbers to add an extra pop to finish the card.

Eastern Medallions with Fabulous Foil Acetate Card

I found this Amazing Card by Kristin Kortonick on Pinterest and loved it so much that I cased it. I adore how versatile the Eastern Medallion set is I have previously made THIS card where I used this flower how it is intended to be that the petals partially cut

For this card I snipped out the flower so it is a separate piece. I layered it with 1 1/4 " Circle Punched Very Vanilla card stock which I stamped using the Eastern Beauty stamp set in Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist. I layered Gold Thread between these 2 layers. I placed this on a Thick Very Vanilla card base with a Very Vanilla layer with a piece of Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate wrapped in Gold Metallic Ribbon you can also use some Sequin Trim over it.

Lovely Inside & Out with Christmas Pines Card - GSF Blog Hop

There is nothing more Festive in Australia than Christmas In July as it actually cold and not scorching hot, so participating in this month's Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop Christmas with a Twist was an easy one to say YES to. While we all eagerly await the Stampin' Up! 2017 Holiday catalogue we are all thinking outside the square with the current offering of products - I have used Lovely Inside & Out, Diagonal Stripe and Christmas Pines stamp sets to make this Ornament card

The base of the card from is Whisper White card stock that I stamped in Basic Grey Archival ink with the Diagonal Stripe. Next stamped the circle bursts for the Inside & Out stamp set in Fresh Fig, Always Artichoke and Cherry Cobbler on Vellum and clear heat embossed them to give some shine and punched them out using the 1 3/4" circle punch. While I was embossing I took the sentiment from the Christmas Pines stamp set and gold heat embossed it on Fresh Fig card stock and attached it to the striped piece using Stampin Dimensionals. I attached the 'baubles' using Fast Fuse. To finish the card front I added the strings that are our NEW gold Mini Sequin Trim and the bauble tops that are bundled together Gold Thread with Gold Faceted Gems. I layered the card from on a matt of Cherry Cobbler card stock on a Always Artichoke card base.

Happy Birthday Thinlit and Pattern Party Decorative Mask Card

I have previously played with our NEW Embossing Paste and while I was making that card I made another card base using the paste and the Pattern Party Decorative Masks

To colour the Embossing Paste base I used our Sponge Brayers along with Tranquil Tide, Pacific Point and Soft Suede inks and used the same technique I have shown in this Video

I added 2 layered Happy Birthday Thinlits that I cut in Tranquil Tide and Soft Suede in the Big Shot using the Precision Plate on top of a Vellum Stitched Shapes Framelit circle. To finish the card I layered it on Thick Whisper White card base and a few layers of Whisper White card stock.

Crafting Forever with Fresh Floral Paper Stack Card

A simple card that is not my favourite but my class ladies LOVED it. I love using scraps and used my scraps from the Fresh Floral Paper Stack that features the 2017-2019 In colours.


I layered them on a piece of Whisper White card stock. In the space that is left on the card stock I stamped the scissors in Basic Black Archival ink and sentiment in Fresh Fig. I coloured the scissors in Berry Burst and Smokey Slate Stampin' Write Markers and places this panel on a Whisper White Card Base.
