Mosaic Mood in Sunburst

I’ve used the Mosaic Mood DSP from the Annual catalogue for this card tonight. This is the Sunburst Technique and is a great way to showcase lots of patterns. I cut 4 different patterns of 6” x 1½” and cut each of those diagonally. Take a piece of scrap card stock and cut it 5mm smaller than your card front, cover it with Snail Adhesive. Start adding your pattern pieces from the bottom (the paper will over-hang off the card). Once you have covered the card, trim the excess off from around the card with your trimmer or scissors.

I covered the corner with a Stitched Circle Framelit in Blushing Bride and trimmed the excess hanging over the edge. The bird is fussy cut from one of the pieces of DSP and added with dimensionals. This layer is added to the Garden Green card base.

For more information about the promotion, contact any of the ladies on the blog hop and we will be happy to help you.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the talented, Sharon Davern. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

Project #1 This Woven Threads DSP is just stunning and features the new In Colours. I have chosen the piece with Seaside Spray and Terracotta Tile. By punching the pieces of DSP and gluing them down with a small gap between them, creates this wonderful effect. The ribbon and the Ornate Frames Dies are from the Holiday catalogue and coordinate perfectly. These dies are part of the Halloween suite, however I love them on their own with other stamped sentiments.

Project #2 The Perennial Essence DSP is stunning and reflects Monet’s artworks. Having studied art at school, this was the first DSP added to my list. The Floral Essence Bundle coordinates with it and I added the flower to the bottom corner, so the DSP is the showcase.

Here is a closer look at the Delicata Golden Glitz inkpad on the vellum. I wasn’t sure how well it would dry and I was impatient, so I added clear embossing powder and heat set it. I was amazed that the glimmer still showed through so well!

Project #3 This card is a CASE (Copy & Share Everything) from a card on page 132 of the Annual Catalogue, although I have changed up lots of the products. The See a Silhouette DSP is so bold and bright and I found this pattern very overpowering, but by cutting the images out, you produce something wonderful! I adore these Heirloom 3D Frames too for the embossed background.

Wildly Happy Collage with Pigment Sprinkles

Tonight I have a collage scene using the fox image from the Wildly Happy stamp set. I have also used the Pigment Sprinkles on the Fluid 100 Water colour paper to create that textured background of the grass. Simply wet the paper with an AquaPainter and carefully sprinkle a very small amount of colour onto the paper. You will see it spread instantly and such vibrant colour. I also added a little water in the Stampin’ Spritzer to add a little more water to spread the colour. Leave it to dry completely before cutting the hill shape with scissors. The smaller hill is Mossy Meadow card, cut with the Layering Oval framelits and embossed with the Suble Dynamic Embossing Folder for extra texture.

The tree is cut using the Sweet Silhouettes dies in Early Espresso card. I added this with mini dimensionals to add some height above the foxes.

The foxes are coloured using Stampin’ Blends markers and fussy cut before adding them to the card. I love how they are curled up resting under the tree!

Silhouette Scenes with the Rice Background Technique

Tonight I have a card that is created using the Rice Background Technique. Really it is a watercolour wash on the Fluid 100 Watercolour paper and while it’s still very wet, sprinkle some rice (or rock salt) over it and allow it to dry without moving it. Once it is dry, the rice draws the colour from the paper. Brush off the rice and you are left with this lovely effect. Mine is used to look like rain at sunset!

I stamped the image (Silhouette Scenes) with Versamark ink and applied the Shimmer Black Emboss Powder and heat set it with the Heat Tool.

Heirloom texture and embossing

When I started this card, I had the White card embossed with the Scripty Embossing Folder and the Tasteful backgrounds dies cut in Copper Foil and glued to the centre, but then I was stuck for inspiration on how to continue and finish this card.

Anyway, after a few weeks on the sidelines, it finally came to me like a light bulb moment, so to speak! I wanted to keep it delicate and so added the Petal Pink card base and then the oval Heirloom 3D Embossing folder and die to frame the copper picture.

I also purchased the Ornate Frames Dies from the Holiday catalogue in my pre-order, so I got those out and the Celestial Copper ink pad and stamped Happy Birthday, because we all need plenty of those cards! This new metallic ink pad dries really well and won’t smudge if left to dry. You can use the Heat Tool to dry it quicker, but it is so much better than the old Metallic Encore ink pads we used to have. I will have to place another order to add the Silver and Gold ones to my stash now I know how good they are!

I tied a bow with some copper trim and added it to the centre with a glue dot. So in the end, I was very happy with how this turned out. What do you think?

Beautiful Friendship is a wonderful thing

Tonight I have a card that I cased from the Creativity Cave. I just loved the bright colours with the splash of black!

This stamp set, Beautiful Friendship, would have to be one of my favourites from the Annual catalogue this year. The Subtle 3D embossing folder would have to be my favourite of all the embossing folders too.

Fanciful Fragrance in classic blue and white

Okay, I have to admit it, Seaside Spray is probably my favourite new In Colour, but I could also be bias as my favourite colour is blue!

Blue and white is a classic combination and I’m using just these two in this card.

I have created a few layers. The card base is actually Whisper White with a layer of Seaside Spray that has been embossed with the new Scripty 3D embossing folder.

The next layer is also seaside spray stamped around the edges in the floral image Fanciful Fragrance) multiple times and a sponge dauber used around the edges to darken it. Then I stamped the perfume images (Fanciful Fragrance) in the centre with Versamark ink and sprinkled white emboss powder and heat set it. This layer is attached to the card with dimensionals.

The Heirloom Frames dies and 3D embossing folders were used to create the frame. I inked the edges of the frame (inside and outside) with the Versamark inkpad and dipped the frame in the white emboss powder, heat set it. It also appears shiny for a classy look!

This frame is added with dimensionals. The sentiment (Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp set) is stamped and cut using the Classic Label punch.

Another milestone with Double figures!

Today we had another milestone in our house; my baby turned 10 and it is truly a bit of a shock to us! How did that happen…. a teenager and a 10 year old in two weeks?!!! LOL

Anyway, she wanted a card with flowers on it, so of course my go to floral stamp set at the moment is Beautiful Friendship, so that it what was used.

Here is her card!

10th birthday card feminine using Stampin Up Beautiful Friendship stamp set by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019..JPG

I used the retired Little Numbers dies (I’ll never get rid of them!) and the wishes is from the Well Written Dies. How awesome does this look with the glittery black organdy ribbon and the black border of the Nested Labels dies?!! I added some Wink of Stella to the number 10 too.

My daughter loves aqua, so I thought the Coastal Cabana cardstock was a good choice for the base card. On the inside, I stamped the rose and leaves and then added the gorgeous and perfect sentiment from the same stamp set to the centre. I was really happy with how this card turned out and she loved it!

Magnolia Blooms in Shimmer White

Tonight’s card is using the Magnolia Blooms stamp set which can be found in the Beginner Brochure and it also coordinates with the Magnolia Suite in the Annual catalogue. This card is reasonably simple to create with a couple of layers of Designer paper adhered to a card base of Petal Pink.

The sentiment is stamped in Memento Black ink and a small piece of ribbon added above it. The flower is stamped in Versamark ink on Basic Black card, Shimmer White Emboss Powder added and heat set with the Heat Tool and watch the magic happen!

Can you see that gorgeous Shimmer White Embossing Powder sparkling?!!! Oh my gosh, it looks even better in real life, just stunning. I cut out the image with Paper Snips and popped it up on some dimensionals so it really stands out.

Bird Ballad Pop Up Card

Today I was able to place an order from the upcoming Holiday catalogue. You could too if you join my team and add product from the Holiday catalogue to your starter kit!

The Holiday catalogue will be available to customers on 4 September 2019. But while I wait and stalk AusPost over the next few days, I have some more gorgeous projects to share.

This one is really feminine and flowery. The Bird Ballad DSP is super pretty and creates the perfect, easy background for cards.

I then die cut one of the Stitched Nested Labels dies from the bundle is white card and stamped the Hello sentiment. I stamped the bird and flowers onto scrap white card and coloured them using the Stampin’ Blends Combo packs; Calypso Coral and Crumb Cake. I had to fussy cut them before adhering to the card with dimensionals. Pretty simple, hey?!

But wait til you see the inside…

This is the pop up part of the card on the inside. I saw this technique done by Jennifer MacGuire and thought it was pretty cool, however I wasn’t keen on the way she created the mechanism… I got glue everywhere! I think I will try something similar but alter it next time.
