Daffodil Delight was my immediate thought when I saw this month's theme and, of course, sunflowers! I decided to mix it up a bit by sponging the background in Daffodil Delight and adding the sunflower die cuts in Whisper White.

I layered the two Whisper White die cuts (slightly askew) and added a Daffodil Delight centre. For the centre, I water-coloured a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock with Daffodil Delight and then die cut it.

The sentiment is stamped in Smoky Slate and fussy cut. I added three of the clear gems from the Elegant Faceted Gems collection and a splattering of Wink of Stella.

Next up in today's hop is my lovely and talented friend Tanya 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 July 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 special guests, the talented and super kind Kylie and Bruno Bertucci. I love these guys!

This month's theme is Cas(e) a Team Member and I was thrilled to be matched up with Angie McKenzie.  Angie is inspired by nature, hence her blog name Nature's Inkspirations. I love Angie's style it's so refreshing and colourful.

I have chosen to Cas(e) Angie's blue card on the left. I love the mono-chromatic look and as blue is my favourite colour it was an easy choice.

I love Angie's layout and colours, and used the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle to recreate her card.

I started with an embossed background using the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder, it is so pretty and dainty! Next I layered up a die cut strip created by die cutting two of the Stitched So Sweetly dies and gluing them together under the flowers.

Next I layered up stamped sunflower images and leaves die cut from Shimmery White Paper that I had water-coloured with Night of Navy Ink.

I wrapped the card in ribbon and added a bow. The sentiment has been white embossed and fussy cut before being added over the ribbon.  A trio of In Color Enamel Dots in Misty Moonlight and a splattering of Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint completes my card.

Thanks for stopping by, next up is Tatiana Tobin, I look forward to seeing Tatiana's cased project!

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

Our theme this month is the "Flowers for All Seasons", and here's a sneak peek of the gorgeous creations everyone has made.


We have an exclusive video tutorial available, showcasing six different and exclusive projects. You can get these tutorials by:
  1. Buying the tutorials ($10.25 NZD from me or equivalent in each market), click on the Buy Now Button under Tutorials for Sale at the top of this page, to make your purchase; or
  2. Spend $37 worth of Stampin' Up! product from me and you'll get these for free.
  3. Get them for free as a member of my Stampin' Up! Team.
The Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle has quickly become a favourite of mine, with its lovely images that, I think, don't have to be limited to traditional sunflower colours.

The main panel of my card was created with White Embossing Paste and the dotted mask from the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks. I then water-coloured the entire background in Pool Party Ink before adding more colour in a concentrated area.

Next I layered up some of the gold foliage from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper - there are lots of fabulous die cuts in this collection!

To this I added the sunflower. I water-coloured pieces of Shimmery White Cardstock with Flirty Flamingo and die cut the base in a paler piece, then added the sunflower die cut in a darker shade (there are 3 of these stacked on each other).

To finish, I added the centre die cut in Gold Foil, Gold Metallic Pearls, a gold bow and the sentiment stamped in Smoky Slate and fussy cut!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Please continue on the hop to see what everyone else has created using this new Product Suite.
