STAMPING SOCIETY APRIL BLOG HOP ꘡BLENDING BRUSHES


Hello and welcome to the Stamping Society's April Blog Hop and Monthly Tutorial. 

This month we are featuring projects using the Blending Brushes. I have chosen the Handsomely Suited Stamp Set and co-ordinating Suit & Ties Dies to create my projects. Here's a sneak peek of the creations everyone has made this month using Blending Brushes.

Blending Brushes are a great what to add colour, especially if you want to graduate the colour! Here I've White Embossed the sentiment over the background then added Pacific Point ink. I started in the middle and worked the colour outwards, the darker colour in the centre of the card creates a focal point and draws the eye in.


The tie was stamped in Memento Black Ink and die cut and layered with a Night of Navy bow and the sentiment embossed in White onto Basic Cardstock and punched out with the Classic Label Punch. The Pacific Point sequins were added from the Whale of a Time Sequins pack.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope my project has inspired you to get creative! Please continue on the hop to see everyone's inspirational projects.

BE INSPIRED | LARGE SENTIMENT


Welcome to March's Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop! This month the theme is a project with a large sentiment, I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has created! Please be sure to hop all the way around for lots of inspirational projects created by the design team. 


The Pretty Perennials Stamp Set is one of my favourite. I love the large "happy". It's a great font and ties in perfectly with the smaller words.

To create my card, I started by watercolouring a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolour paper with Pacific Point ink, then layered up a trio of die cut butterflies from the Brilliant WIngs Dies. "Happy" was heat embossed in white, fussy cut and adhered to the card over a large Linen Thread bow.


To add a little something extra to the background, I flicked some full-strength ink and also some water so I got both darker and lighter spotches. The co-ordinating Pacific Point Sequins are from the Whale of a Time Sequins pack.

Next up in today's hop is my lovely and inspirational friend Tanya in Australia, I'm looking forward to seeing what gorgeous creation Tanya has to share with us.

STAMPING SOCIETY MARCH BLOG HOP ꘡FAVOURITE MINI BUNDLE


Hello and welcome to the Stamping Society's March Blog Hop and Monthly Tutorial. This month we say a fond farewell to Kelly Acheson. All the very best Kelly, it was a pleasure to be on the team with you. And we welcome Charlet Brooks Mallett. Charlet creates the most gorgeous projects and I'm excited to have her in our team.

Our theme this month is our favourite Bundle from the Mini Catalogue and I have chosen the Forever & Always Bundle.  Here's a sneak peek of the creations everyone has made this month using their favourite bundle.

MARCH TUTORIAL SNEAK PEEK:

To create my card, I started with a piece of Fluid 100 and randomly stamped the floral image in Versamark before embossing in White Emboss Powder. I then added water to the area I wanted to colour before adding the Flirty Flamingo ink. When it was dry I added splatters of the ink.

Love was die cut in Basic White using the Foam Adhesive Sheets to give it height, then glued onto the shadow die cut in Vellum. You was embossed with White Emboss Powder and adhered using Mini Dimensionals.

I added gems from the Flowers for Every Seasons Gems and a couple of sequins from the Woven Threads Sequin Assortment.

The water-coloured panel was adhered to the card base using the Foam Adhesive Sheets too.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope my project has inspired you to get creative! Please continue on the hop to see everyone's inspirational projects.

BE INSPIRED | CHILDREN'S BIRTHDAY


Welcome to February's Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop! This month the theme is Children's Birthday, I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has created! Please be sure to hop all the way around for lots of inspirational projects created by the design team. 


How cute is this donkey? I thought it was perfect for our children's theme this month! Now that my girls are nearly 21 and 18 I don't often need cards for little children! The floral paper is from the Well Suited DSP - it's so pretty!


To avoid fussy cutting this little donkey, I stamped it onto watercolour paper, coloured it in and die cut it using a Stitched Rectangle Die.

Next up in today's hop is my lovely and inspirational friend Janneke in The Netherlands, I'm looking forward to seeing what gorgeous creation Janneke has to share with us.
