You Make me Smile #WWYS203

Welcome this this weeks WWYS, its a showcase of Coloful Seasons this week, I can't wait to see what the rest of the team has created.

 Colorful Seasons

Colouful isn't quite the way I would describe the season that is in full swing in Adelaide at the moment, only one word comes to mind..... Hot, Hot and HOT, we had 4 days over 40°C in a row, one day my car even greeted me with 45°C when I left work at 5.30pm, and this week coming isn't looking too much better either.

I was so tempted to use snowflakes on my card (secretly hoping it would drop the temperature hahaha), but decided on flowers after looking at my beautiful  indoor orchid that is managing to survive the heat.



I used my favourite technique to create the 2 tone flowers, using a dauber to sponge the darker Flirty Flamingo centre over the Petal Pink base, and likewise on the leaves with Soft Sea Foam highlighted with Pear Pizzazz.

I love that this set has coordinating framelits (no fussy cutting) and I made the most of them, to extend the branch to the lower portion of the card I simply cut the die cut branch and hid the cut under the leaves and sentiment (cut with a decorative framelit form the Rose Trellis framelits set)


To help the sentiment pop, I added texture to the Whisper White background with the Subtle TIEF - this is a must have embossing folder, it is amazing how a little texture can change a project.

Head over and check out the all projects created with this set by the Design Team, we would love you to participate in our weekly challenges at What Will You Stamp? why not play along with this week - We'd love to see what you create!

  2. I'm seeing this on January 30th in the US where we are deep into winter .... this very beautiful card not only gives me hope for spring, but inspires me to create similar cards for some cold weather friends who could use some cheer.

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.
