On Stage | Sydney 2018

What do you get when you combine 288 die cuts with 144 pieces of card stock, ribbon, twine and Metallic Thread? Card swaps of course!!!!!

Thank goodness for the Stamparatus - it saved me so much time with my stamping, and I needed that time for those delicate die cuts and tying bows on the tags #whatwasithinking !!! But then I realised, this design is all me - I love detail and layers, and I want to share what I love with others, so this is just perfect.

I used both sides of both plates and also triple stamped the Soft Sky background with the Touches of Texture moving the plate down a notch each time - talk about easy peasy lemon squeezy! I used a magnet to hold the tag in place whist stamping, which meant I could double stamp if I missed inking it all over without and it would line up perfectly, yay - believe me I didn't want to have to cut any more of those delicate die cuts!

After cutting the Whisper White tags I made the cards in batches - I like to do my swaps with the same design, but add the variety of different colour combinations.

used a "template" to help me position the tags and flowers - and guess what the Stampartus helps with this process too!

Here are some completed cards in different colour cominations:

Berry Bliss, Flirty Flamingo, Tranquil Tide

Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Tranquil Tide

Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Tranquil Tide

Melon Mambo, Berry Bliss, Powder Pink

Wisteria Wonder, Powder Pink, Lemon Lime Twist

Thinking of Botanical Butterflies | Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Wendy Cranford

Welcome to our Crazy Crafters Blog hop with special guest Wendy Cranford for the USA. Wendy is a super talented crafter,  you may be familiar with her blog Luvin Stampin, it's full of amazing projects that are bound to inspire you.
As a Crazy Crafter, our task is to CASE (copy and selectively edit) one of Cathy's creations, I decided on the below card, I just adored the simple lay out.

Like Wendy, I've made use of the beautiful Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper - it's just gorgeous.... and can be yours FREE with a qualifying purchase during Sale-A-Bration, here's my Wendy inspired creation:

I was taken by the delicate detail of this imagery, I paired up with stitched scallop edge from the Be Mine framelits - I can't believe that I missed this framelit when I first looked at the set - I must have been too excited by all the hearts. To add height to my scalloped layers I added a layer of corrugated embossed cardstock.

The sentiment is from Climbing Roses, and…

Floating away with Tropical Chic

How quickly time goes by, it's another All Star Tutorial blog hop already! I'm always looking for new techniques and ideas, and follow a number of paper crafters -there is always so much to learn and seeing one project can open up inspiration for another.

Have you ever seen a project and just had to give it a try? My creation today is a inspired by all the Floating Frame cards I have been seeing, I just had to make one,.. but I was soon to discover that it wasn't going to be easy, search as I did, the wonderful Press & Seal still remains illusive to me here in Australia, whilst there is a Costco in Adelaide, it's a long drive so we don't have a membership, likewise the online options I located are just not cost effective, so I came up with an alternative approach for my card - my solution = a floating card front!

The first phase was to find a stamp set with medium to large die cuts, I opted for my one of my favorite sets, Tropical Chic, then to stamp and die cut …

Delicate Lace with Magnolia Lane

Well hello Saturday! What a long week that was, so happy to creative today, it feels like it's been ages! To get me in the mood I went to my favourite challenge blogs for some inspiration, and I chose this sketch:

For today's creation I've mixed some old with the new - Delicate Lace edge dies with Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper. I decided to turn the sketch on the side, it seemed to show of the lovely flowers better.

This DSP is just gorgeous, a mix of floral and stripes all using a beautiful colour palette - yes, it did have me with pink, but honestly if you replaced pink with a purple or yellow it would still be an amazing DSP.

Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project. Stay tuned for more inspiration and tips this month. If you live in Australia and don't already have a demonstrator I'd love love to be yours.
