Color Fusers Blog Hop July 2024

Hello July! and welcome to this month's Color Fusers Monthly Blog Hop! This month, we are featuring the Black, White and a colour of our choice. Well, I just happened to have Pretty in Pink on my desk from another project, and being pink, that became the colour of my choice! I started by grabbing a blending brush and applying Pretty in Pink, then run my fingers under the tap and splattered water onto the pink - the longer you leave the water the more colour it draws out from the card stock. When the card front had dried completely I stamped the butterfly and sentiment from Sketched Butterflies , adding splatters with a Stampin Write marker and the "splatter" stamp from Layering Leaves . To finish I splattered some Wink of Stella and added some rhinestones for that touch of bling!

All Star Design Team - Take to the Sky

Hello crafters, a new month, means a new bundle from the All Star Design Team. This month we are showcasing the  Take to the Sky suite  from the new Annual Catalogue. The All Star Design Team not only design a Tutorial Project that’s exclusive but we also each design an additional project to share here for further inspiration. This suite leans towards masculine themed cards (my nemesis) so it has been a personal challenge to create with this suite, so what do I do when I'm stuck for ideas? I search Pinterest, where I saw some cards using the Perennial Postage Dies, and since I have all this gorgeous coordinating DSP I also channelled Kylie with #loveitchopit for inspiration. I am sooooo happy with the finished card! It really came to life when I added the DSP base (thank you to my inner Kylie!). My Dad will love this card, he has been an avid stamp collector since childhood. Take to the Sky Inspiration Below is a sneak peek of what’s in store with this month’s Bundle. You’ll see my

Color Fusers Blog Hop June 2024

Hello and welcome to this month's Color Fusers Monthly Blog Hop! This month, we are featuring the 2024-2026 InColors. I decided to create a "mixer" using all the colours with a stamp from Country Birdhouse. The flowers are a mix of Petunia Pop and Pretty in Pink with a Peach Pie centre, with Shy Shamrock leaves.  I used a Blender Brush with Summer Splash to the top and bottom of the card, working from the bottom edge up fading the colour as I went, then added a touch to the top for symmetry. To finish I added a touch of bling with Iridescent Pearls. These colours just "pop", so bright and cheery!

Color Fusers Blog Hop May 2024

It's time for this month's Color Fusers Monthly Blog Hop! This month, our colors include Pebbled Path, Bubble Bath and Moody Mauve - perfect colours for a Mother's Day Card! I've used the new Attention Shoppers Bundle for my design - a super fun set with a mix of font and cute pictures that can be mixed and matched to be used for so many occasions. I added some InColor DSP and cut the feature circle using the online exclusive  Everyday Details Dies  - they are just amazing, I missed them being released due to being so busy at work - so take it from me, make sure you keep an eye on the Online Exclusives released each March, July and November. I decided on a "wash of colour" using Stampin' Blends then die cut with the coordinating dies. After stamping the sentiment I adhered the 3 die cut images and finished by adding a touch of bling with Silver ribbon and Basic Rhinestones.

All Star Design Team - Nature's Sweetness

Hello crafters, a new month, means a new bundle from the All Star Design Team. This month we are showcasing the  Nature's Sweetness suite  from the Mini Catalogue. The All Star Design Team not only design a Tutorial Project that’s exclusive but we also each design an additional project to share here for further inspiration. I've tried a monochromatic mood with a pop of colour.  I used a Blended Brush to apply Soft Sea Foam the the edges of the card front, with just a light touch of Blueberry Bushel then toddled off to the kitchen and ran my finger tips under the tap and flicked the water onto the card front to create the watercolour splatter. While the card front was drying I stamped the leaves on Soft Sea Foam cardstock and then coloured with Stampin' Blends.  The flowers were stamped on Basic White and coloured with a mix of Fresh Freesia and Bubble Bath, then I went around the edge with Soft Sea Foam before die cutting. Nature's Sweetness Inspiration Below is a sneak

Color Fusers Blog Hop April 2024

It's time for this month's Color Fusers Monthly Blog Hop! This month, our colors include Parakeet Party, Granny Apple Green and Calypso Coral - straight away I thought of flowers, and decided to use the soon to be retiring Two-Tone Flora stamp set. I used a Blending Brush to colour the background, and used one of the Basic Border Dies to create the "banner look" at the bottom of the panel. I used 1st and 2nd generation stamping for the flowers to create the two tones, and daubers to ink the based of the leaves in granny Apple Green and the tips in Parakeet Party.
