Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - 'Life is a Wild Ride'

| on

Hi there!

It's the 4th Sunday in the month, and the 'Stamping Sunday Design Team Blog Hop' is happening. We are  sharing our creations with the theme of 'Life us a Wild Ride'.

My creations are literally a ride using a Scooter; Moped/Vespa and a bicycle...

The cutest little pig riding a scooter!, is my first 'Wild ride' creation.
Teamed with the gorgeous 'Country Floral Lane 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper' using the 'Balmy Blue' hearts pattern for my card front.

So, I may have had a little mishap with the 'Multipurpose Liquid Glue' and scattered the Blue 'For Everything Fancy Sequins' to hide the glue mark on the 'Burlap Ribbon'.
Tied with 'White Baker's Twine'.

'Happy, happy Birthday!'
I have coloured the pic & Scooter' with 'Stampin' Blends Markers', die cutting the stamped image using a 'Stitched Rectangle Die'.

Next up is a gift box.
The measurement of the cardstock: 7" x 11"
Score: 1"/4/6/9 and 2" from the bottom, snip and tab.
Designer Series Paper: 11-1/2" x 3" - wrap and adhere to the box.
Punch a hole and add 'Burlap Ribbon' and tie a bow.

I used the 'Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker' to mark the flower images, and stamped directly to 'Crumb Cake' cardstock.
I stamped the 'Enjoy the Ride!' sentiment, and die cut with a 'Tailor Made Tags Die'.
Tying the tag to the ribbon with 'White Baker's Twine'.

Creation Station Design Team Blog Hop - Ink Blending

| on

It's the month of March, and the 'Creation Station Design Team' are Blog Hopping.

This months theme is 'Ink Blending' and we hope to inspire you with our creations.

I have used 'Blending Brushes' and 'Sponge Daubers' as my tools to blend my ink for my 2 creations...

I have used the retiring inks from the '2021-2023 In Colors' and one of my favourite stamp sets 'Dragonfly Garden'.

Die cut the circles with the largest circle from the 'Stylish Shapes Dies' and 'Basic White' cardstock.
Stamp the images using 'Versamark ink' and smother the images with 'White Stampin' Emboss Powder'.
Set the powder with the 'Heat Tool'.
Get your 'Blending Brushes' ready and start out with the 'Pale Papaya' ink, then gently add the 'Polished Pink' ink finishing with 'Fresh Freesia' ink at the top.
Rub away the ink from the embossed image with some paper towel, to reveal the embossed image.

Splash the ink blended circle element with water - using the 'Heat Tool' to dry the water splashed onto the element.
Add 5 'Gold' sequins from the 'For Everything Fancy Sequins'; randomly adhered to the circle element & sentiment.
The 'Quatrefoil Tile Embossing Folder' makes for a lovely background.

Die cut a tag from 'Soft Succulent' cardstock using 'Tailor Made Tags Dies'.
Grab a 'Sponge Dauber' and sponge 'Evergreen' onto the top half of the tag.
Stamp the floral image onto the tag using 'Versamark ink' and and smother the image with 'White Stampin' Emboss Powder'.
Set the powder with the 'Heat Tool'.
Splash the inked area with water - using the 'Heat Tool' to dry the water splashed onto the tag.

Stamp the dragonfly image using 'Tuxedo Black Memento' ink onto 'Basic White' cardstock.
Blend 'Pale Papaya', 'Fresh Freesia' & 'Polished Pink' ink with 'Sponge Daubers'.
Once the cardstock is dry, punch with the 'Dragonflies Punch'.
Adhere to the tag with 'Mini Stampin' Dimensionals'.
Some 'Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush' was added to the Dragonfly for some simple sparkle.
Tie some 'Sahara Sand Twill Ribbon' and 'White Baker's Twine' to complete the tag.

Sara Nell Langland is next on our Blog Hop, and I can't wait to see her 'Ink Blending' projects!

Thankyou for visiting, and I hope you enjoy our 'Ink Blending' Blog Hop.

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - 'In a Word'

| on

 Well, hello!

It's been a while since I have created, photographed, edited and blogged for the 'Stamping Sunday Design Team'.

I am back, and couldn't wait to join in with our 'In a Word' theme for our February Blog Hop.

I have 2 cards to show you, and I love me some simple with a bit of a bow (usually using 'Linen Thread'). 

Enjoy my 'In a Word' creations.

I started out by die cutting my 'words' using the 'Love for You Dies' from the 'Love for You Bundle'.
Divine 'Country Gingham 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper' in Sweet Sorbet with Sale-a-Bration 
'Dainty Flowers 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper'.
I think these beautiful papers combine so well together!

Adhere the 'Sweet Sorbet Country Gingham DSP' to 'Sweet Sorbet' cardstock.
Fussy cut the oval of flower wreath, stamp the sentiment, and adhere the oval wreath to the card front using 'Stampin' Dimensionals'.
Adhere the 'Love you' die cut words onto the oval using 'Mini Stampin' Dimensionals', and paint the 'Petal Pink' words with 'Wink of Stella'.
Add a handful of Pink 'For Everything Fancy Sequins' scattered around, finishing with a 'Linen Thread' bow.

This is just a lovely and simple combo of the papers, split with 'Linen Thread'.
Adhere the 'for you' using 'Mini Stampin' Dimensionals' and tie the 'Linen Thread' bow securing with a 'Mini Glue Dot'.

I had a little piece of 'Gingham left over, which ended up on the inside of the card.

Below is the list of my amazing and talented Design Team members who have their 'In a Word' themed creations for you to enjoy...
See you in March with our next Blog Hop. D x

Creation Station Design Team Blog Hop - Holiday Happenings

| on

I can't believe it's the first Sunday in the month of December, 2022!
But it really is!
The Creation Station Design Team Blog Hop is here, and our theme this month is 'Holiday Happenings'.
You may be visiting me from my beautiful friend Sara Levin in the US, or you are starting with me? Enjoy and be inspired by our Blog Hop.

To be honest, I cannot wait to start our Summer Holidays in Australia. 
We are on the countdown to Christmas, and my creations are for an Aussie Christmas complete with Koalas and Eucalyptus Leaves.

Gift Tags!
My favourite little things to make.

This little tag started with the stamped Koalas from the 'Count on Me' stamp set.
I coloured the Koalas using 'Smoky Slate' & 'Crumb Cake' Stampin' Blends Markers. Adding a touch of 'Color Lifter' for some little highlights.
Those teeny red sequins are small silver sequins coloured with 'Dark Real Red' Stampin' Blends Marker. Adhered with a little dab of 'Multipurpose Liquid Glue'.

'Merry Christmas' sentiment is from the 'Kindest Gnomes' stamp set.
The leaves have been stamped with 'Old Olive' ink, and some 'Garden Green' ink lightly daubed around the edges of the leaves with a 'Sponge Dauber'.
Sorry, but I did fussy cut the leaves. I originally die cut the stamped image, but there was way too much white surrounding the image. 
Bring out the 'Paper Snips' people.

I had an idea to use the 'Elegant Eucalyptus 3D Embossing Folder' with 'Old Olive' cardstock.
And, another idea to use the 'Tailor Made Tags Dies' - to make another tag!
And, I just love this embossed tag.

Adding another sweet little Koala image, and fussy cut leaves with a 'Merry Christmas' sentiment.
Also, the 'Real Red' reinforcement and 'Linen Thread' are a perfect finish for my Australiana Christmas Gift Tag.

See that lovely 'Lindt Koala'? 
That was my inspiration for my Christmas Gift Tags.
I have only seen a 'Lindt Bunny' at Easter, but this little guy is my new favourite for Christmas gifting.
Perfect inspo for an 'Aussie Summer Christmas Holiday Happenings' creation or two don't you think?

I hope you have have been inspired by the Creation Station Design Team Blog Hop? 
Thankyou for visiting and see you next time. D x

Next up is Sara Nell Langland with her gorgeous project.
