Rock N Roll with Beautiful Bouquet

Hello Friends,

Today I am sharing my June ATC Swap that I made as part of our wider Art With Heart Team monthly ATC swaps. I have used Stampin’ Up!s Beautiful Bouquet Bundle which as you know is my favourite bundle in the Annual catalogue and this challenge was to use the Rock N Roll technique. The Rock and Roll technique is a great way to add a variation of colour to your stamped images!

ATC Swaps are 2½” x 3½” cards. Each month a different technique is chosen and for every participant, you make that number of cards, exactly the same. We send them all to the organiser with a stamped self addressed envelope and once she has them all from each participant, she sends one of each back in our envelope! It’s a wonderful way of learning new techniques without having to create full size cards.

What do you think of this technique? Would you give it a try?!

Happy stamping!

Succulent Garden Suite

Dear Crafters,

Today I have created a card using the Succulent Garden Suite. I have to say, I was very happy with how this turned out, as it was reasonably quick to create and I can see myself making loads more in this simple, but effective layout. The flower was what took the time, but once you have made one, you can put them together quite fast.

The succulent is made of 2 of each of the 3 largest petals and 2 of the smaller daisy type dies. I sponged the edges with Rich Razzleberry ink using a sponge dauber. A bone folder was used to curl the edges under before joining the flowers together. I found by putting the flowers together in pairs first and then each of the 4 pairs together to make the one giant flower was the easiest!

The Designer Series Paper is double sided, so I cut one piece to be 14.5cm x 10cm, then I cut it through the centre at about 8cm, turned one piece over and joined them together on the card! This is a very quick and effective way to decorate the background. Then I added a strip of glimmer paper over the join.

Birthday, Challenges, Flowers, Stampin' Up!

Balloon Celebration as flowers

Dear Crafters,

Today I enter a challenge at Pals Paper Arts. The challenge this week is an Colour Challenge PPA#283.

ppa-283-jan14

As soon as I saw this colour challenge, I knew I had to give it a go! This is one of my favourite colour combinations.

I started with a Mint Macaron card base and added some coordinating dsp which I sponged the edges.

Next I stamped the images onto Whisper White card stock using the Memento Black Inkpad. The stems are from the Flower Patch stamp set, as is the sentiment, but those flowers are actually from the Balloon Celebration stamp set. Yes, it is that “wheel” looking stamp that we all looked at and wondered what on earth it goes with in the theme of the balloon celebration stamps. It had me stumped for days, but I was determined to have a play and work out exactly what I could create.

The flowers are coloured with the Stampin’ Write Markers, Melon Mambo and Mint Macaron. I stamped the dotty circle image onto vellum and punched it out with the 3/4″ circle punch.

I added each vellum circle with a glue dot and then added a large pearl to the centre of each flower.

Check out that gorgeous white jute ribbon behind, adding the perfect amount of texture!!!

Convention, MDS

Convention Mini Swaps

Hello Crafters,

Today I share with you something that our Stampin’ Up! Art With Heart Team did for Convention 2014 held here in Melbourne this year.

Those who wanted to join this challenge, made a 2″ x 2″ swap using the colour combinations: Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Rose Red or Strawberry Slush & Silver.

The idea was to pick a theme, which our up-line Claire chose, Flowers and Friends. I think this was the perfect theme for our lovely team of ladies.

At the end of our first day at Convention, we all met up for a drink and swapped our squares. It was such a lovely idea, getting us all together to chat about Convention, which for many of us, was our first one ever!

So here it is all framed!

I got a 12″ x 12″ white shadow box frame and layered my background with a piece of Strawberry Slush DSP ~ Whisper White cardstock ~ Strawberry Slush cardstock and then the tricky part of adhering those gorgeous 2″ x 2″ squares evenly!!! I think I did okay?!

The top middle square, I created in My Digital Studio (MDS) and then printed it so we can look back on this for many years to come and remember when and why we made it!  For your free 30 day trial of MDS click here. It is awesome to use in conjunction with the new Project Life products which all coordinate with the Stampin’ Up! range.

Here is a close up of the swaps!
