STAMPIN' UP! ARTISAN BLOG HOP - CARRY OVER EVENT!

 
Welcome to our May Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop where this month we are featuring products that have Carried Over into the new 2019-2020 Stampin' Up!® Annual Catalogue. I love seeing my favourite sets return - it means I can enjoy them some more along with the new ones!
 
Would you like to have a card class with the Artisan Design Team? Well that's exactly what we are doing this month! Hop along to join in our card classes this month using sets that have Carried Over. As always I can guarantee there will be lots of inspiration and gorgeous projects.
 
For my class I'm featuring the Buffalo Check Stamp and combining it with the Garage Gears dies for a masculine card, and the Healing Hugs Stamp Set for a female card.
 


I've also used the Well Said and Perennial Birthday Stamp Sets for my sentiments and dies from the Lovely Leaves Edgelits Dies.
 
Grab the supplies listed at the bottom and let's start!
 
 Happy Birthday Garage Card
 
  1. Cut a piece of Basic Black in half to create the card base, score and fold in half.
  2. Place a piece of Whisper White Cardstock in the Stamparatus, line up the Buffalo Check stamp, ink it up using the Garden Green Classic Stampin' Pad and stamp.
  3. Using the Basic Black Stampin' Marker or Stampin' Blends add a fine line between the checks.
  4. Trim image to 9.4 x 13.8cm and layer onto a piece of 9.6 x 14cm Silver Foil Cardstock.
  5. Wrap a piece of Linen Thread (80cm) around the layers, tie a knot, add two mini silver metal embellishments from the Classic Garage Metal Elements,  tie a bow, then adhere to the card base.
  6. Stamp Happy Birthday from the Well Said Stamp Set onto a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and trim. Adhere to card front using Dimensionals.
  7. Die cut the gears from the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies in Basic Black Cardstock and adhere to the card front.
 
Happy Birthday Hugs Card

  2. Place a piece of Whisper White Cardstock in the Stamparatus, line up the Buffalo Check stamp, ink it up using the Highland Heather Classic Stampin' Pad and stamp.
  3. Trim image to 9.4 x 13.8cm and layer onto a piece of 9.6 x 14cm Basic Black Cardstock. Adhere to the card base.

THANK YOU BIRD BALLAD

I loved creating with the new Free as a Bird Stamp Set that I decided to create some mini cards using the smaller images in the set.

 
I created my cards using the same technique and layout I had used for my original card here.
 
 
I added a splatter of Wink of Stella to the background - do you love a little sparkle?
 
 
Isn't this little bird so cute? A bit of fussy cutting and some Dimensionals to pop it up on the background.
 

Are you looking at this image and thinking it's not in the set exactly like this? You're right! I cut the three birds out from the large image then glued the branch back together! I also added some Iridescent Sequins because these are one of my favourite Stampin' Up!® products!
 
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great week and see you back here again soon.

STAMPIN' UP! ARTISAN DESIGN TEAM - EVERYTHING IS ROSY!




Welcome to the Artisan Design Team's Everything is Rosy Blog Hop! It's so much fun being able to share our creations using this gorgeous new product medley.

The Everything is Rosy Medley is available for purchase now - but only for a limited time (1-31 May or while stocks last) and you won't want to miss out!


How gorgeous are these lovely bright colours? I've always loved Night of Navy and teamed here with the Rose Gold, it makes a perfect combination.
 
 
This is everything included in this set. A stunning collection of quality co-ordinating products Stampin' Up!® are renown for!
 
 
This card was created using the floral die cuts and, as I love a little fussy cutting, I've cut and layered some of the flowers and adhered them to a die cut label. I've used two of the Rose Gold Adhesive Backed Mirror Embellishments along with a few Rose Gold dots popped out from the die cut labels.
 
 
The Rose Gold Foil sheets cut with the edged die are so pretty and delicate, and frame the label perfectly!

 
 
The floral dies cuts layer up beautifully with the leaves cut from the Rose Gold Foil Sheets and the die cut labels. And of course, co-ordinating ribbon!
 
 
As I wanted the staple to co-ordinate with everything Rose Gold, I painted it with the Rose Gold Shimmer Paint and let it dry before using it in my stapler. I've been looking around the house to see what else I can paint Rose Gold!
 
And here are three more cards I've created using the pretty floral stamped images and matching die cuts.

 
I've used Night of Navy, Lovely Lipstick and Coastal Cabana ink and added various embellishments to complete my cards. There is so much potential with this product medley - the choice is yours.
 
The Everything Rosy Product Medley is only available until 31 May 2019 or while stocks last. Contact me now if you'd like to purchase this fabulous medley - I know you'll love it as much as I do!
 
For more inspiration and ideas check out the amazing creations by my fellow Artisan Design members.
