feminine, Handmade Cards

All Abloom

Hello Crafters,

Today I am going back to the Annual Catalogue and selecting one of the Hostess Sets, Bloom with Hope to create some cards.

I thought they would go nicely with the All Abloom Designer Paper Stack.

I just love the colours and patterns in these papers, plus they are some of my favourite SU Colours; Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo, Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush and Whisper White.

This card features the Bloom With Hope Stamp Set which is perfect for colouring with our Blendabilities.

The ribbons and layering give added texture and dimension.

Here is a close up of my colouring. It doesn’t need to be perfect in any way, as long as you have some blended tone on tone, you get the results!

Here is another example using different colour blendabilities.

Bloom with Hope

Hello Crafters,

Well who would of thought that it is already the last day of Term 3 and we look forward to spending the next two weeks home with the kids on school holidays!

We don’t have any plans as yet, but I am sure amongst the necessary hair cuts and appointments, there will be some day trips to the zoo as well as some crafting days with the kids.

This card features the Bloom With Hope Stamp Set which is a hostess set for this year and perfect for colouring with our Blendabilities.

Bloom with Hope

Colours used are Rich Razzleberry and Wisteria Wonder. The flowers are coloured with the Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Blendabilities.

The ribbon and layering are Wisteria Wonder.

Bloom with Hope & Blendabilities

Hello Crafters,

Bloom with Hope is bound to be a stamp set any Hostess will want to purchase with their Hostess Dollars when they gather some friends together for a Stampin’ party! Here is one example of how easy it is to use, colouring with the Blendabilities markers. This takes us all back to our childhood, colouring in!!!!

Bloom with Hope

I used Wisteria Wonder card stock to create the base of the card. The next layer is white card stock embossed with the decorative dots embossing folder. The DSP is from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack.

I love the little banner of silver glimmer paper to just add the right amount of sparkle and the pearls for a touch of class!

Challenges, feminine, JAI

Bloom with Hope

Hello Crafters,

Today I have found myself needing to craft after two weeks off work and it being school holidays, where I have spent loads of time with my gorgeous girls!

But now they are back to school, I needed a kick start, so I begin with a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is a Sketch Challenge JAI#223.

I am also using 2 of the new 2014-2016 In Colours; Blackberry Bliss & Tangelo Twist. I wasn’t sure if they would work together, but I was surprised and I think they actually work well.

Loads of new product is used in this card, from the ribbon, stamp set, DSP and cardstock. I think the only things that are not new are the circle framelits and the Honeycomb Embossing Folder!

Bloom with Hope

The Bloom with Hope Stamp Set is one of the many Hostess Sets available in this new annual catalogue and it is just beautiful.

I used the Shaving Cream technique to create the background colours of the flowers, then stamped the images and fussy cut.

If you have realised by now, I love dimension on my cards, so I used dimensionals to add the blooms to my card!

Why don’t you give a challenge a go, they are so much fun. Head across to the Just Add Ink page for more inspiration and see how the designers interpreted this challenge.
