Ink it! Stamp it! June 2019


It's the last Friday of the month, that means it's Ink it! Stamp it! time again. This month we are sharing Kids/Male themed inspiration.

I will be the first to say male themed cards don't come easy, kid's are a little easier, especially when you have a beautiful stamp set like Leave a Little Sparkle (I can't get enough of that unicorn themed set at the moment) - today I've used Seaside Notions to create an "Under the sea" card.


Most males I know like the sea and fishing, and our child has always loved going to the beach, we even started snorkelling a couple of summers ago, and near the jetty we saw sea horses!

To create the raised front I sponged a mix of Mint Macaron, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Pacific Point on a piece of Coastal Cabana, then cut an oval for the peek-a-boo stamped images to be stamped on the Bermuda Bay base. When I was happy with the sponging I embossed with the Swirls & Curls embossing folder then spritzed with Frost White Shimmer paint.


Then place over the stamped images - I chose to raise the embossed panel for added dimension, but you could just adhere straight to your card base. I silver embossed the sentiment and popped it up with a couple of dimensionals, it was actually surprising how quickly this card came together, you have to like that :)

Daylight isn't my friend this time of year, it's hard to find good light before after I go to my 9-5 job, I shone a torch to show the shimmer from the shimmer paint.

All Star Tutorial Blog Hop

Not only is today the monthly All Star Blog Hop, but it is also the launch day of Sale-A-Bration and the Mini Catalogue, wow what a busy day!

Do you ever get caught up in the detail, and before you know it hours have past and all you really wanted was a quick card? That is me all to often,but today card came together quickly and it's perfect for a masculine birthday event too!

Who would have thought with just a strip of Birthday Bonanza Designer Series paper, a sentiment from Bonanza Buddies (from the new Mini Catalogue) you could have a gorgeously masculine card in a jiffy!

I raised card front layer using some corrugated embossed cardstock for a little mow impact, the DSP is adhered directly to the card base, here's the side view


Lastly add some sequins to celebrate the happy day = card is complete!


Yes, it's a simple design, but less can be more on some days, hahaha (I don't have many of those days when it comes to card making).

Say it with Stars... Happy Birthday

I've had a crafty orientated day today in between weekend household chores, after delivering catalogues, and in between multiple loads of washing & cooking I played with part of my So Many Stars bundle..... being the Stitched Stars dies (23 in the set, spoiilt for choice, woot!)

These dies were perfect for the Global Design Project theme this week:


I started by stamping my birthday sentiment, then placed 3 of the star dies (the 3 smaller detailed stars) in position and ran through the Big Shot, then re-positioned and worked by way along the edge of the card, cutting 7 in total - perfect for a rainbow of colour.


I used 2 of the stitched stars to cut the colours, then placed them behind the card front and popped up on dimensionals, lastly mounting the card front on a Thick Whisper White card base, and there you have it, a fun Children's birthday card!

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.
