Creating Kindness Design Team Blog Hop - All about Florals

I'm super excited to share with you that I'm a Guest Designer with the Creating Kindness Design Team this month, it's such an honour! This month's theme is FLORAL, and if you follow me, you know that flowers are "my thing".The team will be sharing lots of ideas to inspire your floral creativity.

I was totally sold on the Last a Lifetime stamp set when I saw it in the Mini Catalogue, and that is what my project today is featuring.

I started by stamping and colouring the floral image with Stampin Blends in Poppy Parade and Mint Macaron, then cut with the coordinating Dies, next was the circle frame, it's 2 layers - using the largest Stitched Shapes circle die, and then placing the corresponding Layered Circle Die to create a fine frame (the edge of the plain circle die lined up perfectly with the outer edge of the Stitched Shapes circle die, making it super easy to cut out).

I used a Poppy Parade Stampin Marker for the Love & Joy part of the sentiment, I used the Stamparatus and did it a couple of times to get the colour nice and even, then I mask those words and inked up in Memento Black to complete the sentiment, then cut with the large Stitched Circle Die taking care to take into account the with of the frame I'd created.

Then I added a mixture of hearts using 2nd, 3rd & 4th generation stamping, and added some splashes, and of course some Bling, aren't the From my Heart Faceted Gems adorable!

Floating away with Tropical Chic

How quickly time goes by, it's another All Star Tutorial blog hop already! I'm always looking for new techniques and ideas, and follow a number of paper crafters -there is always so much to learn and seeing one project can open up inspiration for another.

Have you ever seen a project and just had to give it a try? My creation today is a inspired by all the Floating Frame cards I have been seeing, I just had to make one,.. but I was soon to discover that it wasn't going to be easy, search as I did, the wonderful Press & Seal still remains illusive to me here in Australia, whilst there is a Costco in Adelaide, it's a long drive so we don't have a membership, likewise the online options I located are just not cost effective, so I came up with an alternative approach for my card - my solution = a floating card front!



The first phase was to find a stamp set with medium to large die cuts, I opted for my one of my favorite sets, Tropical Chic, then to stamp and die cut …

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.

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).
