Flourishing Phrases for Stampin Friends


Welcome to the September Stampin Friends Blog Hop, this month is celebrating Fall. Whilst it's not Autumn in Australia, the weather is still very changeable in Adelaide, so whilst it is officially Spring it feels just like when Autumn comes to stay - I can't wait for it to warm up a bit, the sun to shine for more than a couple of days before it rains again.

As you would know I love pink, so Autumn colours can be a challenge with yellows and oranges - not in my "go-to" range, but combined with a little Fresh Fig, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie are just amazing!




I love the Flourish Thinlet dies that co-ordinate with Flourishing Phrases, don't you just adore the little belly band on the candle, so simple and easy to do, and it makes a complete package with the card.

There are so many sentiments in the Flourishing Phrases set it is hard to choose, it's a great set to have on hand as it covers off so many occasions. I decided on a simple phrase that can be used to Thank You or even just a Hello. I used sponge daubers to create a shading effect on the sentiment, it looks so pretty going from light to dark and ties in beautifully with the cluster of die cut leaves.

Hand-Penned Thanks

Hello crafty friends, todays card is for Kylie's Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop, our  Blog Hop Theme: Thank you This month I will be treating my customers with a thank you card featuring the Hand-Penned Suite.  Below is one of the Thank You cards you may receive when shopping with me this month - May 2021. This is one of my "go to" layouts when using DSP, and dressed up with the gorgeous scalloped edge die it has wow and comes together in a jiffy. After stamping the sentiment (I wish I could write like this) all that is left to do is  adhering scalloped edged card fronts by popping them up on dimensionals, then a touch of bling with rhinestones. So if live in Australia, and would like to receive a Hand Penned Thank You card from Sue Vine - simply place an order with me this month! Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project. Continue through the list below of fellow demonstrators who are all working on building our businesses and having fun

Art Gallery Painted Texture - All Star Tutorial Blog Hop Jan 2021

Hello and welcome to my first post for the year, and also to join me with the new All Star Tutorial Design Team Blog Hop. I've fallen in love with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder, so I've made a card for today featuring this as well as the images and die cuts from the Art Gallery Bundle. The flowers are a 2 stamp process, I've used Petal Pink with Calypso Coral (stamped off once).  I stamped the base image twice and trimmed the flowers off so as to get the Soft Sea Foam leaves. Lastly I added a touch of bling with Champagne Rhinestones.  Be sure to continue through the list below to see more creations from the Flowers for Every Season Suite from the design team: Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project. Stay tuned for more inspiration and tips this month.  I’ve listed the products I used below, just click on the picture and be taken directly to the product.  I truly appreciate your support, it inspires me to keep crafting and helps to keep

Sand & Sea All Star Tutorial Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to this months All Star Tutorial Design Team Blog Hop featuring the Sand & Sea suite. I had so much fun creating my tutorial card, I used the same background technique for this card - you will never get any 2 cards identical, so if you like something that is unique, this may be for you to try.  I didn't use the embossing folder for today's card, just the single die cut to get my 3 seafloor elements. I first stamped them, then coloured with Stampin' Blends. Be sure to continue through the list below to see more creations from the Sand & Sea Suite from the design team: Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project. Stay tuned for more inspiration and tips this month.  I’ve listed the products I used below, just click on the picture and be taken directly to the product.  I truly appreciate your support, it inspires me to keep crafting and helps to keep my blog and YouTube channel running.

Love You Always - All Star Tutorial Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the All Star Tutorial Design Team Blog Hop featuring this month's suite - Love you Always. For today's card I've let the True Love Designer Series Paper do most of the work. After cutting the flowers, I added a light touch of colour with Blushing Bride and Soft Sea Foam then positioned under the double banner - I love how this banner has the indentations for folding to make it look more 3D. Lastly I added a touch of bling with Blushing Bride Metallic Ribon and Champagne Rhinestones.  Be sure to continue through the list below to see more creations from the Love You Always Suite from the design team: Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project.

Sending Smiles with Butterfly Bouquet

One of the fantastic things about being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is that we get early access to catalogue items - just the Butterfly Bouquet Collection!  This means that we can show you our wonderful projects on the day that it released to customers.... TODAY! Isn't it just gorgeous, talk about want it all...... uhh, yes! I reframed from using DSP today and have focused on the beautiful die cuts. The set comes with both outline and detailed dies, so it's entirely up to you as to what you want to use, surprise, I couldn't choose, so stamped a couple of the smaller images to combine with a large diecut. I used blending brushes with Highland Heather and Seaside Spray, with the sentiment (from Many Messages) and butterfly detail stamped with Gray Granite. The background is courtesy of the Painted Texture 3D Embossing folder. Be sure to continue through the blog hop for more inspiration from Butterfly Bouquet.
