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.

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.

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.
