Monthly Team Blog Hop January 2020 – Breathtaking Bouquet

Thank you for joining us for our Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Monthly Blog Hop! As you follow the hop I hope you find lots of ideas and inspiration. We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the world taking part in a training program helping us to build a successful Stampin’ Up!® Business and reach some of our goals. Thank you, we really appreciate your support.

Breathtaking Bouquet

 

This card was made using Stampin’ Up!® Breathtaking Bouquet Cling Stamp Set from the 2020 Mini Catalogue and Pigment Sprinkles.

Have you played with the Pigment Sprinkles? Get some …you will love playing with them.

The colours are beautiful, they can be strong and bright or soft and subtle depending on how you use them and the amount of powder you use. The effect I was working on was bright and vibrant so I used a lot of the sprinkles in a single area.

Hint…

With Pigment Sprinkles a little bit goes a long way, so I would suggest to test them out and play.

I stamped the Breathtaking Bouquet image in VersaMark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Then with the sprinkles I coloured the image only used 4 of the 6 colours in the sprinkles- Gorgeous Grape, Melon Mambo, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody. I layered the powder first and then sprayed the later trying not to get too much over spray which will blow the powder outwards.

When the watercolour paper was dry (with a heat gun) it was trimmed down to allow for double matting in Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green cardstock. I balanced the card by having a wider white boarder around the matted card front and also by adding the Whisper White 1/4″ (6.4 Mm) Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon wrapped around twice and finished with a bow.

A few Noble Peacock Rhinestones in Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green add a hint of sparkle.

There is no sentiment on this card which means that this can be used for any occasion.

Timeless Tulips Pencil Topper

Welcome to my blog post today, I hope you are all having a lovely Sunday.

Friday night was my first class for 2020 and we had so much fun. The class was based around the Timeless Tulips Bundle from the 2020 Mini Catalogue.

Here are the projects the class made, we had so much fun….lots of laughing, as always.

Video below with what I used and How these tulips were made.

This card we used the sponge Brayer to create the  monochromatic background and then sprinkled some water on the card front to create the splatter look. The water pushes the colour away leaving the white. spots.

This card was CASED from the card we made at On Stage last year. On Stage is one of the benefits of being a Demonstrator, you get to play with some of the products before they are released.

I have added my FB Live video showing how the Pencil Toppers were made.

“Thank you!”

These are two words that over the last couple of months we here in Australia have all said more than once to the most amazing group of men and women. Who have work tirelessly to protect our homes and business. In each state we call them something different but here in NSW they are the brave men and women of the RFS- Rural Fire Service. They have walked away from their jobs, homes and families, they have missed out on Christmas, New Year and family times to fight the worst fires we have seen for many years. Some have also lost there own homes and there lives.

These fires go from Queensland all the way down the coast of NSW and into Victoria. There are Fires in the Mountains and down into the valleys.

We can’t thank these wonderful people enough.

The words on this card says it all…

‘We can’t Thank you Enough’

This card was a fun card to make using a ‘One Sheet Wonder’ method of stamping inspired by Ruth Trice.

You can get 4 cards from this sheet of A4 Whisper White cardstock.

Perfectly Plaid Gift Card Wallet

One of the easiest things to give as a gift is a gift card. But it doesn’t have to put in a envelope and left at that. Why not make a beautiful card or in this case a wallet for the card to be slipped into.

What did I use….

Cutting Measurements

  • Cardstock – 10.5 x 29cm
  • Whisper White Cardstock 9.5 x 7cm, scrap also to stamp and cut tree from

You will need 3 different pieces of Designer Series Paper

  • Front left – 7 x 7.4cm
  • Front Right – 9.5 x 7cm
  • Inside left 7 x 7.4cm, scrap to cut 2″ circle

Where to score and put together are all on the video below.

Breathtaking Bouquet

Have you started to work on a card idea and then relised you used the wrong product. Well, that happened to me yesterday. Have all week been wanting to make this card idea I had and sat down to make it and instead of using the White Embossing Powder I used the Clear Embossing Powder.

So what do you do? Throw it out and start again or go with the flow and work out what to do now. I decided to go with the flow and worked with what I had. So its different to what I was going to do and I think it looks great……What do you think, do you like it?

You may not recognise the the stamp set….this is a sneak peak to what is coming in the new Mini Catalogue. It is an all over floral design stamp and its very big, so don’t be afraid to cut it down to suite your card size.

How did I achieve this look.

Products used:

  • Breathtaking Bouquet- NEW Mini Catalogue*
  • Happy Birthday to You – NEW Sale-a-Bration*
  • Blackberry Bliss cardstock, Card Base- 14.5 x 21cm score at 10.5cm, Card front -12 x 14.5cm
  • Whisper White cardstock,  2.5 10cm, Insert 10 x 14cm
  • Clear Embossing Powder
  • Delicata Golden Glitz
  • Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Pad
  • VersaMark Ink
  • Embossing Buddy
  • Multi Purpose Glue
  • Dimensionals

* these products will be available 2nd January 2020

Tools used:

  • Stamparatus
  • Heat Gun
  • Trimmer
  • Sponge

What did I do…

  • Place Card front piece in stamparatus, position stamp of top and close plate down so stamp adheres.
  • Wipe card front with Embossing Buddy. Coat stamp with the VersaMark.
  • Sprinkle Clear Embossing Powder over the top of Card front and tip off the excess powder. Heat with heat gun until melted.
  • With a sponge lightly rub over the embossed area with the Delicata Ink- Golden Glitz. Don’t worry if the coverage is not even as this just adds to the texture. Buff card front with a tissue to remove any ink sitting on the embossing.
  • Trim the Card front down to 1o x 14cm
  • Whisper White strip stamp your sentiment in Blackbeyy Bliss, I used the Happy Birthday from the Happy Birthday to You stamps.
  • Gently swipe the edges of Whisper White strip through the Delicata Ink – Golden Glitz – You will need to let this dry before handling.
  • Adhere the card from onto Card Base with Multi Purpose Glue and the Whisper White strip with Dimensionals
  • On inside of card adhere the Whisper White Insert. If you wish you can stamp floral strip down the right hand side of insert before adhering into card. I did this by lining up the cardstock in the Stamparatus so then only the edge was stamped.

I hope you have enjoyed this card and like me, I hope you find that not all mistakes are mistakes but just another idea wanting to get onto paper.

If you have any questions please contact me. All the products except the stamp sets will be listed below and are linked to my On-Line Store.
