Ink It! Stamp It! with Floral Frames & Tufted Embossing!

Happy Friday everyone! It's that time again, the monthly Ink it! Stamp it! Design Team blog.  Our theme this month is the "New Annual Catalogue" squeal! such an exciting time of the year, I can' wait to see what the rest of the team has to share with us.

I'm featuring the Floral Frames Bundle and the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder - when I saw this folder it was straight on my wish list, and I'm not disappointed, it is just stunning!


I am so in love with Tufted! It adds a touch of elegance to this project, and with such a minimal effort - what more can you ask for.

I stamped with 2 new colours from the revamped Subtles collection - Sea Foam and Petal Pink. I stamped first image in Sea Foam, then fussy cut, then stamped the flowers using the indiviual stamps and die cut, adhered, then added a little bow for a touch bling with Silver & Petal Pink Baker's Twine (another item that was straight on my wish list)

Stampin Friends - I'm wishing for Summer

Welcome this this month's Stampin Friends Blog Hop, it's a summer theme - my friends in the northern hemisphere are enjoying the sun, but I'm rugged up in my "trackie and Uggs" sat in front of a heater - the theme made we wish for warmer weather, and that got me thinking of the beach..... 



Now there was no way I was going to the beach when it was 10 degrees, so I started looking at holiday photos, and found a beautiful day at Port Norlunga, I decided to make a 12 x 12 for a photo frame, and later I can transfer it to my scrapbook pages.



My background is created using 3 of the designs from the Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper, I added Burlap Ribbon and Linen Thread for a beachy rustic feel. I printed the memory from the day on vellum and cut into a Banner.



I carried the Banner theme into my card project using the scraps of the DSP, waste not, want not I say! And see the top of the card, that texture is created with the Subtle embossing folder, I am in LOVE! The sentiment is from Tropical Chic.



Take your time to hop around to see what summery creations the rest of the group has on offer by following the list below you are currently visiting Sue Vine - MissPinksCraftSpot from Australia:

Peeking in with Animal Outing

Something a bit different for me today, a CAS (clean and simple) project for this months Birthday themed Stampin' Dreams Hop, and I can't wait to see what the rest of the hoppers have to share with us.



I've used a couple of the cute critters from the Animal Outing stamp set to create my design, I was drawn to the giraffe popping his head up, and then I thought of the sentiment from Pretty Kitty... a little masking to remove "hello" and adding a few dot's to lead to the inside of the card, but it needed something more, that's when I saw those adorably cute "eyebrows" on the frog, perfect!


I stamped the images with Memento and was about to use Stampin Blends when I realised the colour would bleed through (fine when you are using layers, but unusually for me, not on this card), so I changed Water Colour pencils, and melted the colours with Blender  Pen


Grab your favourite beverage and continue you way through the Birthday Hop list below; you are currently visiting Sue Vine - MissPinksCraftSpot from Australia




Supplies used for this creation:
Stamps: Animal Outing, Pretty Kitty & Picture Perfect Birthday (inner sentiment)
Ink: Memento & Water Colour Pencils
Cardstock: Thick Whisper White

Make a Difference #WWYS173

Welcome back to What Will You Stamp?  This week we are show casing the wonderfully versatile set Make a Difference, if you are thinking the font looks familiar, you are right, it coordinates with Love What You Do stamp set (which we showcased in WWYS171)



The great thing about this set is that you can create any sentiment that you want or need = YAY! I had a special request for an 80th birthday, so this set was just perfect for the occasion.

The set contains 143 images and is photopolymer, making it easy to align the letters when creating your "personal" sentiment.


My plan was simple.... I knew I needed 80th Birthday & flowers, and I had the gorgeous Share What You Love DSP, so I had a plan..... that's where simple ended as somewhere along the way Botanical Bliss Framelits and the Floral Frames bundle found there way into my project too!


There are may details and elements in this Card in a Box, I admit it, I went a little crazy playing with lots of new toys in BBB (Big Brown Box) that arrived:
  • The background is embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder - and I love it, how wonderful is that texture
  • I layered 3 of the same die cuts with the birdies from Botanical Tags to create the back feature element
  • the side panels use the large flower also from the Botanical Tags Framelits
  • the focal 80th arrangement features the Foliage Frame Framelits - I did a little fussy cutting with the flowers too.
  • The "additional foliage is from both framelit sets
  • 80th is stamped using Make a Difference
  • and Happy Birthday is from Beautiful Bouquet - I used the masking technique to separate the words to put 80th in the middle - and look how the Make a Difference font coordinates with this set too! Winner!
WOW, what a list when you write it all down! Like I said, the end card isn't what I originally had in mind, but as soon as I saw the little birdies I couldn't resist putting them my Card in a Box, and everything went from there!


Head over and check out the projects with this set from the Design Team here, 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!
