Aussies who love Stampin' Up Challenge #004

No automatic alt text available.













Joining in on the Tic Tac Toe Challenge at Aussies who Love Stampin' Up was fun.  All you had to do was pick a line and make your card show casing the three elements.


There were a few I liked but I settled for the one down the centre - Girly, Stamp and Dry Embossing.



The Dry Embossing was using a folder from the Petal Passion suite.  It is beautiful floral border (covers the floral element too!!) which I ran down the centre of the card - which was Pink Pirouette (girly!) mounted on a new In Colour - Grapefruit Grove.
My new stamps had yet to arrive, but the beautiful new DSP Garden Impression had, so I fussy cut the roses from the paper and added a stamped sentiment (from the Oh So Eclectic set).

Of course, a little bit of bling from a gold glitter die cut (Petal and More dies) to finish it off.

I am chuffed to say I made it as a finalist!!

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop - CASEing Jessica Taylor

This week we are CASEing Jessica Taylor - number 118 globally!!!  Wow!!
Looking at her blog I can see why.  It is full of amazing information to help you get started, try new techniques and full of inspiration.
There was plenty to choose from to CASE  - I was spoilt for choice but I loved the look of this collection using a retired Sale-a-bration set.

I updated the look with the new Animal Outing set from the new catalogue (coming very soon!!!)

This set has some very cute animal images - the only one I didn't use was the Giraffe.


The Kangaroo has a little Koala in it's pouch - very cute and a nice tribute to us stampers down under!  I decided, as he had the little arm (?) sticking out, it was just right to hold a sign. I used the Petal passion paper as it has many black and white papers to choose from, and this reminded me of jungle vines.
The Rhino, not often thought as a cute, is just that, especially with the little bird perched on his horn.  The embossing folder reminded me of an…

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop - Nadine Weiner

Blog hopping today with the Crazy Crafters and Nadine Weiner.
We had to CASE something from Nadines blog and WOW!  What a choice!
I think I have several designs, in reserve, to try at a later date.  
Check out her blog: https://stampinclub.de/blog/ And you will see just what I mean!
So the card I went with is this one:
I love the simplicity, and the black and white with a pop of colour.
Here's what I came up with........

I used Petal Passion DSP for the background.  There are a few black and white papers that I could have used from this pack. My pop of colour was Bermuda Bay - one of my favourites! - with Soft sky behind.

My "flowers" are from Eclectic Layers thinlits (they look a bit like broccolini!!). I left the top unattached to give a bit of dimension.
I popped them up on dimensionals and threaded the sentiment in behind. I mounted it on Bermuda Bay to tie it all together, leaving a slightly larger border - so I can see more of this yummy colour!!
Such a fresh looking card.
Thanks…

Colour INKspiration #29

Colour INKspiration has a new colour challenge every fortnight on a Wednesday evening.  I am always excited to see what combo is waiting for us, and then I get my thinking cap on!
I am particularly thrilled to be a guest in this Colour INKspiration #CI29 blog hop!




The challenge for #CI29 had a lovely rustic feel and I was instantly drawn to the lovely bouquet.

I started thinking woodland......cascading flowers....woodgrain.....texture... and surprisingly, it came to me pretty quickly what I wanted to do.
I pulled out the colours I needed and started to put it all together.




I used my layering circle framelits to cut a circle frame from the Wood Texture DSP with a Very Vanilla circle underneath for stamping my sentiment.
The flowers and leaves were cut using the Bouquet Bunch framelits.  I trimmed the bunches down to get the shapes I wanted and cut some individual ones to add here and there.

Added a bit of dimension by raising the circle frame up from the Very Vanilla base.



The final touch was …
