Wednesday, 25 August 2021


Welcome to August's Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop! This month the theme is Sale-a-Bration, 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 new Delicate Dahlias set? I think this set is going to see a lot of ink over the next couple of months!

To create this card I stamped three dahlias in Staz On ink onto a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock and water-coloured them with Blushing Bride Ink, then I water-coloured the background with Mint Macaron.

The Blushing Bride panel at the top has been embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder (another new product you will be seeing a lot of) and then I've wound a piece of the fabulous Black and White Gingham Ribbon and tied into a bow.

I also added a White Baker's Twine Bow, a couple of leaves die cut from the Summer Shadows Dies and a sprinkling of Pearls. The sentiment is also from the Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set and has been die cut using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

The Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set a FREE stamp set available during SALE-a-bration! Yes it is the second SALE-a-bration this year and there are lots of gorgeous new products available free with purchases over either $110 NZD or $220NZD. More details below.

Hello and welcome to my Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team project for August. I'm Angela Meiritz-Reid from Christchurch, New Zealand and I am so excited to be part of this amazing team of talented Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world.
This month my projects were created using the Nature's Harvest Bundle from the new Mini Catalogue July-December 2021 Catalogue.

I chose the colours for my cards to co-ordinate with the colours in the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper - Soft Succulent and Misty Moonlight.

I love creating my own paper to die cut, it creates softer images and I can also mix colours. For the leaf image, I coloured a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock with Soft Succulent and Misty Moonlight. I also layered up two of the images to add a soft shadow.

The splattering technique using Gold Embossing Powder is detailed further down this post.

The floral images on this card have also been layered to create some depth and shadow.

The Cork Designer Series Paper adds an interesting element and looks great die cut.

To create harmony with my cards I used the same design of DSP, gold bows and the metallic dots.

The sentiments in this stamp set are just lovely and the fonts are lovely too!

To create the Embossed Gold splatters on my card, I flicked water over the area, covered it with the Gold Emboss Powder then heat embossed it.  The water evaporates when you heat emboss it, just leaving gold splatters.

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to sharing my future projects with you.
