Wednesday, 24 June 2020


Welcome to this month's Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop! Our theme this month is "Something New". You may have arrived here from my very talented friend Emma Goddard from the United Kingdom, or if you are starting here be sure to hop all the way around, you won't want to miss any of the inspirational projects created by the design team.

The new Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle is proving to be very popular and diverse. I've stuck to the traditional colours for my card but love that it looks great in any colour!

For my background I die cut the large sunflower outline with Whisper White Cardstock that I had adhered the new Adhesive Sheets to - this makes this technique very quick and easy.

I stamped the sunflower image in Daffodil Delight and then using my Water Painter I softened the edges. I also added some Calypso Coral to add depth.

I used the same technique for the leaves, then added a few water spotches!

I love this sentiment and the fonts!

The gold thread is from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack, and I've added some Gold Metallic Pearls too!

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

Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday Design Team's June Blog Hop. The Around the World on Wednesday has been created by my lovely friend Angie McKenzie and comprises a group of super talented demonstrators from around the world! The Around the World Hop goes live on the second Wednesday of each month.

This month we have a special guest, the amazingly talented and lovely Cindy Schuster!

This month's theme is All Things Crafty, focusing on inspiration from the new Stampin' Up!® Annual Catalogue. I've chosen to showcase some new products I have so far!

The Tasteful Touches Stamp Set has everything I love in a stamp set, great images and sentiments in lovely fonts!

To create my base layer, I stamped the foliage image in Calypso Coral randomly around the edge, then layered up a Whisper White Panel, stamped with the filigree image in Daffodil Delight and then die cut using the frame from the Nature's Thoughts Dies.

Next I layered up the floral image, stamped in Flirty Flamingo and fussy cut, over a swirl of Linen Thread.

Hello was white embossed onto a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock and fussy cut. I also added three Rhinestones, coloured using the Calypso Coral Dark Blends.

To finish I added some Wink of Stella, both on the flower and flicked over the card.

I have created a YouTube Video Tutorial. To view click here.

What are your favourite products from the new Stampin' Up!® Annual Catalogue?

Thanks for stopping by, next up is Tatiana Tobin, I look forward to seeing what inspirational project Tatiana has to share.

Welcome to the Stamping Society's June Blog Hop and Monthly Tutorial! I'm thrilled to be part of this team of amazingly talented Stampin' Up!® demonstrators from around the world.

Each one of us has chosen a different set to showcase, I chose the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set.

I love all the images in this set and the fonts used for the sentiments are elegant and stylish.

To create my card, I started with a mat of Rococo Rose embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. Next I layered up a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock, to this I had white embossed the filigree image and then water-coloured over it in Seaside Spray. I also splattered it with some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint.

Next I added the foliage which I stamped in Pear Pizzazz and then fussy cut.

To this I added the flower image,t has been stamped in Rococo Rose twice and fussy cut. Using my bone I rounded the petals and layered it up with Dimensionals.

I finished off my card with a linen bow and hello embossed and fussy cut from the "just saying hello" sentiment.
