International Blog Hop Highlighting Stampin' Up Products



I am so excited to welcome you to our International Blog Hop highlighting showcasing some of the latest Stampin' Up!® products. We are a group of demonstrators from around the world that want to give your inspiration and show ideas of what you can create with these amazing products. 

I have had this project in mind for a number of weeks and decided this was the perfect "time" to get to it and create!  My daughter absolutely adores cats, so when I saw Pretty Kitty in the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue I knew it just had to go on my list - if she went through the catalogue and saw I didn't have the stamp set I would have had some serious explaining to do!  So it's "time" to see my Pretty Kitty project:




I came across some desk clocks when I was in Cheap as Chips and thought they would be perfect for a project, they had a glass panel with print behind it which I thought would just peal off.... well think again - my hubby came to the rescue and used his muscles with some glass cleaner and WD40 to remove the original image that was stuck on to leave me with a clear glass panel and the mechanism!


The glass panel is a little under 6 inches square, I trimmed some Thick Whisper White cardstock to fit and stamped my images. I used a Aqua Painter to colour the cute little kittys, then reassembled the clock with my stamped images behind the glass.  To finish I added Enamel Dots to make it easier to tell the time.

Sweet Cupcake | #WWYS78

It's sweet treat time at WWYS - we are featuring the Sweet Cupcake stamp set this week!




This is such a cute set with a wide variety of sentiments for many occasions, and who doesn't love cup cakes! 



My note card measures 9.9 x 9.9 cm, the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies created the perfect back drop for my cupcake. I just had to add Wink of Stella on the icing, it looks so good you just want to eat it! and how beautiful is the Pool Party Satin Ribbon, I love the touch of shimmer and shine it adds to the card.

Rustic Touches of Texture

Today I am sharing a project with you using the Touches of Texture stamp set.  You may have seen my post from earlier this week, well this card is quite different:


  
I've used the background stamps on Mint Macaron cardstock to give a rustic style to my card, I just adore the "negative" image of this particular stamp, and also sponged the edges of my card stock for that "old world" feel. I am just loving the effects that can be created with the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies too! I used the below colour combination:



My sentiment has been created using the Thoughtful Banners bundle, there are so many sentiments to choose from in this set, and a choice of 4 different Banners - how cool is that!

      

I'm featuring this project in the Crazy Crafters Highlights this week, if you would like to vote for my project click on the picture below :)

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop | Special Guest Dawn Olchefske




Welcome to our mid week Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest Dawn Olchefske.  What an honour for us to be CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) one of Dawn's fantastic projects! 

The inspiration came from this card. Dawn has instructions for making this Shadow Box Fun Fold card on her blog, and I am a sucker for fun folds so decided this was the perfect opportunity to give one a try

Blooms & Wishes card created by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC186 #dostamping #stampinup

It's just like Dawn said, these cards are fun and easy to make! I changed things it up a bit and made a winter snow scene for the focal part of the card, I am so excited to share with you how this turned out!


I immediately thought of I card I made a few weeks ago when when I saw Dawns shadow box, so incorporated the design from the card for my shadow card.  


I used Layering Ovals Framelits Dies to cut the window in the top layer of the shadow box, and also created a small scalloped frame and adhered with the fine tipped glue pen. The Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder finished of the design perfectly.




The back layer is sponged lightly with Soft Sky then I stamped the trees then stamped the small trees multiple times with Crumb Cake and VersaMark  used Heat & Stick Powder to heat emboss Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter

I also added a middle layer to my card to project to give a 3D effect for the beautiful Thoughtful Branches trees, here is a close up of the  layer:


Do you just love this and want to make your own? Thoughtful Branches is only available in August and while stocks last, so don't hesitate or you might miss out.


We hope you find great inspiration from our projects. I would love it if you could pin my cards!

Touches of Texture | #WWYS77

Hello, welcome to WWYS, this week we are featuring the Touches of Texture stamp set:


This set is amazing for creating backgrounds and water colour type effects, but today I thought I would try at bit of a CAS style card with clean lines:


I've used my favourite technique of colouring with an Aqua Painter, if you visit my blog often you will be familiar with this. what I have done differently on this card is use Clear Embossing powder with my black ink, it makes a lovely shine for that something a little different on you card - the gorgeous sentiment is from the limited edition Thoughtful Branches set.


I went a bit crazy once I started using my Layering Squares Framelits Dies, and oh my I just love the new Foam Adhesive Strips - they are a little thicker than Dimesionals, so it was really easy to create these layers




The flowers reminded me of gerberas (or happy flowers as I call them), I decided to step out of my pink comfort zone and enter yellow and orange, I'm so happy with the result!

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop | Special Guest Jennifer Michalski


Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop, today we have the great pleasure to have Jennifer Michalski as our special guest, our task - to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) one of Jennifer's. My CASE is inspired by the the below card:


I was drawn to the layout of this card, I have edited the sizing of the layers to create fine lines, and instead of using DSP have embossed my background and stamped the adorable bear using the soon to be released Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set in the BRAND NEW Holiday Catalogue


I reversed the embossed image from the Happy Heart Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to create my background, and the sentiment is from Suite Sayings stamp set. 

I would love it if you could pin my cards! Please take the time to hop all the way around our Crazy Crafters hop and see all the incredible inspiration and ideas, and if you have a chance please leave a comment, we love receiving comments.

Thank You Thoughtful Branches | GDP048

I'm back visiting the Global Design Project to Case Designer Tanja Kolar.  I was inspired by the layout and balloons in the middle of her card.


Here is my card, it turned out very unlike what I first envisioned, but I couldn't be happier!



As you can see I have swapped the balloons on Tanja card for the beautiful tree from the Thoughtful Branches Bundle.  I added texture to the edges of my card using the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder - this embossing folder is just amazing. I used Sponge Daubers to selectively add my inks to the stamps on both the foliage and the gorgeous sentiment also from Thoughtful Branches - such a beautiful font. I am so happy with the colour blending, especially on the sentiment it really pops!
