Ornate garden in black!

What inspires you?

That may sound like an odd question. But, stop and think about it.

Where do you get ideas from? What sparks the creative thoughts flowing? Have you been feeling in a slump lately?

With everything going on right now, I am sure that many are not feeling like their peppy selves or are maybe finding a hard time feeling “creative”.

Keep looking for that creative spark!

The good news is there is only 1 more sleep until the new 2020-2021 Annual catalogue goes live and you can look at all those gorgeous pages of amazing and inspirational photos of new projects!

What are you most looking forward to seeing? I cannot wait to get the new In Color Inkpads!!!!

Tonight’s card features the Ornate Garden Suite of products. I stamped the large image on black card with Versamark ink and heat set it with White Emboss Powder.

Then I coloured the entire image with the White Chalk Marker and let it dry before colouring with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Doesn’t it give a cool effect?!!!

The Designer Paper is so colourful, I actually cut it about a third of the way down, flipped it over to reveal the other side and glued them to the card base. The white ribbon is wrapped around to cover the join! The image was then added with dimensionals.

On the inside, I placed another image in the bottom corner to carry the theme over.

Bright Poppies for a Happy Birthday

Tonight’s card is a bright and bold card using the Painted Poppies stamp set, coordinating Elements and Designer Series Paper.

I stamped the card front with the poppy stamp in Versamark ink as I wanted that watermark look. Strips of the designer paper were added before I added the black circle element. I watercoloured the poppy and leaf from the elements pack and once dry, placed them on with dimensionals.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink on black card and Gold Emboss Powder added and heat set. I fussy cut this and added it with dimensionals. I love how bold it is and the gold adds some class and shine!

Regrowth after the devastating fires

Wow, it’s April already and what a year it has been! We started the year here in Australia with those terrible bushfires raging across our country and now the coronavirus has taken over the world 😦  Thank goodness it is school holidays now and we can isolate in safety at home, meaning plenty of time to craft! Who doesn’t love a good reason for that?!!!

We need to go on and stay positive, so tonight’s card is bright and cheery and has lots of poppy flowers reminding me of the regrowth happening following the devastating fires!

The Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper is amazing and you don’t need to do too much to your cards to make the most of the gorgeous designs. Adding a few embellishments from the Peaceful Poppies Elements pack made creating this card so quick to make. I love the vellum element behind the pre-printed one and that black circle really makes the poppies pop!

On the inside I added some white card with some extra triangles of DSP left over from a previous project.

Tricorn Style Fancy Fold Card

Tonight’s project is a fun fancy fold card. It may look quite complicated, but in fact it was quite easy to make. It’s the decorating that took more time!

Tricorn Fold Card using Stampin Up Peaceful Poppies DSP & Peaceful Moments Bundle by Kate Morgan, Australia Mini 2020

For the rosette, I used a strip of gold foil measuring ¼” x 11″ and scored every ¼”. Be careful using a hot glue gun to hold it together.

I gold embossed the sentiment onto a banner and placed it under the poppy die cut. How cute are those Peaceful Poppies sequins?!!

The back of the card is where you write your sentiment.

This card folds flat to fit into a C6 envelope, although with the rosette, it may be a little balky for posting!
