Colorful Seasons make me smile

Welcome to this months Stampin' Friends Blog Hop. This month's theme is Fall. It's not something that we celebrate in Australia, so Iv'e created projects using autumn colours... which is a bit out of my comfort zone. 


Orange's are not my thing, so to ease into the theme I incorporated Petal Pink, now that's more me!  

I sponged Petal Pink, Pumpkin Pie and Cherry Cobbler on Very Vanilla for my leaves. Since I wasn't in my normal zone I ruffed up a scrap of Petal Pink and ran it through the Corrugated Embossing folder, then I roughed the edges a little more - where is the real Sue Vine?


To get a nice dark stamping on the sentiment I used the Stamparatus and applied and stamped Cherry Cobbler multiple times.


Lastly I dressed up my gift candle by wrapping a piece of coordinating Petal Pink and secured by tying with Linen Thread and adding a couple of spare leaves.


I hope the projects you've seen here on my blog today have inspired you & brightened your day. You are currently visiting Sue Vine at MissPinksCraftSpot. Please see the list below & hop through all of the friends on the list to see all our projects. You don't want to miss any!


Sue Vine - you are here
Ohhhh and how is this!...... I at times avoid using dark/bright  colours on my photoploymer stamps as some colours stain, so I tried the new Stamp Cleaning Pad.. check out the before and after.


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.

Wedding wishes with Bloom & Grow

Hello and welcome. Today I'm joining Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop with fellow demonstrators who are all working on building our businesses and having fun while we do it. There are some awesomely talented ladies in this group, so sit back and get ready for some amazing inspiration with a variety of themes.

I'm highlighting the Bloom & Grow stamp set today - I'm also trying a new "theory" of creating projects when I break open a new stamp set before putting it on my shelf, as sometimes I find an un-inked stamp  when the catalogue retires. So far so good, this is my second design.


I love the simplicity of this card, using the Gold Foil-Edged Cards & Envelopes cards with gold embossed stamping makes for a quick yet elegant card in a jiffy!



Now that you have seen my creation, make sure you visit all the other Demonstrators, I know you're going to be so inspired after viewing their amazing creations.


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.

Bloom & Grow on a Winters Afternoon

What to do when it is wet, windy and cold? Put the heater on in the craft studio and get creating of course! That's the plan but where was the mojo, I needed something to trigger inspiration, so I checked out my favourite challenge blogs and BOOM, I had it:


I'd just opened up my latest order that contained the Bloom & Grow bundle, these colours would work.... now where are those ink pads? Search high and low, nothing so I went to my Stampin' Markers and before not to long I had my image coloured - using a clear block I coloured a little of the marker and then used an aqua painter to apply to the stamped image.



I was fascinated with the scalloped dies in this set - they are designed so that you can insert your die cut flower into the card, they don't cut all the way across your card front, how cool is that!

I stamped the lower portion of the Merry Merlot card base randomly using the same image  as the coloured flowers using VersaMark to get the light Merry Merlot on Merry Merlot, then spritzed lightly with a spray of Champagne Shimmer Paint - you can see a hint of the shimmer in the photo below, it's so pretty in real life. I trimmed the Whisper White layer just below the scalloped insert and adhered on a layer of scrap that was corrugated embossed to give a little height.




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.
