Colour Creations: Terracotta Tile Floating Frame

AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop

Tonight’s AWHT Colour Creations Blog Hop features Terracotta Tile, the 3rd of our new 2019-2021 In Colours.

This is the Floating Frame Technique that you may have seen everywhere, as it’s been the most popular technique since earlier this year (Google it and you’ll find loads of videos on how to make them).  I was also fortunate enough to have some fellow demonstrator team mates in Auckland early for OnStage Live who were able to purchase a roll of the Glad Press & Seal product to make these projects (it’s not easy to get here in Australia).

I decided to fussy cut all the images of a sheet of the Mosaic Mood DSP one evening during our family movie time 🙂

I love the fact that we actually get 2 cards from this technique too!

Doesn’t it look effective?! I love this technique but make sure you have time and not be in a rush. I added some rhinestones and glitter enamel dots to the spaces for some extra sparkle and interest.

This second card doesn’t have a sentiment yet, as I will add the appropriate one at the right time.

If you are going to have a go at this technique, be warned, you need to have loads of dimensionals and patience! Getting those backings off the dimensionals takes time, hehe.

The sentiment is from the Daisy Delight stamp set, inked with Terracotta Tile.

Masculine Thank You Card

Dear Crafters,

Are you like me and struggle with Masculine cards? Well, I have been on a bit of a roll lately with lots of requests for Masculine cards, and this Wood Textures Designer Series Paper is perfect to use!!!

Masculine Thank You card using Stampin Up Wood Textures DSP, Painted Harvest & Seasonal Layers thinlits by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia #stampinup #cutitnothoardit DI

I have obviously gone for the earthy tones and the Seasonal Layers thinlits are the perfect match, along with some of the burlap ribbon. The sentiment is from the Delightful Daisy stamp set as I wanted a fairly large image to stamp onto the Oval Stitched Shapes framelits die cut.

Faux Wood Grain with Daisy Delight

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a new technique that I haven’t tried before and I was pretty happy with how it turned out.

I am using the Daisy Delight Bundle and the Faux Wood Grain Technique.

Can you tell I am just loving this bundle?!!! It is unbelievable value at under $55 for the stamp set and coordinating punch!

Anyway, here is my card. I love the look and simplicity of this. I haven’t added a sentiment, because truthfully, I don’t think it needs one and I can just write inside the card.

I love how the vellum adds a touch of softness, rather than a solid colour and that ribbon, wow, it is gorgeous to work with!

To see how to create the faux wood grain technique, head over to YouTube to see Carolyn Bennie demonstrate this amazing technique. I just love how every time you try it, it looks so different.

Make a Wish with Daisy Delight

Dear Crafters,

Today I have another card we made at my class last Saturday using the Daisy Delight stamp set and the Stamping Block Technique!!! As I mentioned, it is unbelievable value at under $55 for the bundle; stamp set and coordinating punch!

The sentiment is from the new Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and I love the font.

I adore this colour combination too!

For best results with the Colour block, ensure you have a clean clear D block and a pierce mat under the cardstock when stamping.

I saw a similar card on Pinterest by Rachel Durtschi, but changed up the colour combination.

We made these in my class yesterday and the ladies loved the colour combination!

I saw a similar card and for the life of me, I cannot find the original creator anywhere. I will keep looking and be sure to update this post when I find it. UPDATE: I found her, Lavinia Gruizinga from the UK, but it was on a private FB Group so I cannot link to her card!

Posy of Gerberas with Stampin’ Up! Daisy Delight

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a gorgeous posy of flowers made out of paper, yes paper, and if you come along to my class tomorrow, I’ll show you how to make them!

I had my mum call in yesterday and she couldn’t believe that they weren’t real flowers!

You know when you walk into a florist to buy a bunch of flowers and you nearly fall over at the price of them? Well, this Daisy Delight bundle is a great bargain for $54.75 which is probably what many spend on buying a bunch of flowers that will die in a weeks time, but these ones you can keep for a lifetime and enjoy making many more for all your friends for their birthdays!!!! Wouldn’t that be such a wonderful gift to receive?!!!

Daisy Delight by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator, Rowville 3D

Each flower is made up of 3 stamped and punched flowers and offset when glued together. I also used my bone folder to turn the ends of the petals down.

The stems of the flowers are made using cheap plastic drinking straws that I had in the kitchen cupboard, and I covered them with florists tape.

This is the back of the flower. You can see that the straw has been cut 5 times about 1/2cm down and opened up. This was glued with Tombo Multipurpose glue to the back of the flower. It didn’t look aesthetically pleasing, so I then cut a ring using the 3/8″ and 3/4″ circle punches to cover it and also make it more sturdy!

The greenery was something I have had for many years and it goes so well with these gerberas!

What do you think? These are just so bright and cheery and I reckon they would make the perfect gifts for anyone to brighten their day!
