Jungle Pals Dies

The other day after completing ‘Live with Michele’ I had so many die cut pieces from the Jungle Pals Dies left over, I just had to make another card!

These colours on the Basic White are stunning, its a simple card with a matted front panel that I ran through with the Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folder. The sentiment I used is from the Stippled Roses Stamp Set, I just wanted a simple and narrow sentiment.

Jungle Pals

I had so much fun yesterday on ‘Live with Michele’ creating this fun card. I used 3 NEW products from the Stampin’ Up! ® Sale-A-Bration Jan- Feb 2024 Catalogue – Jungle Pals Stamp Set, Heartfelt Hellos Stamp Set and Jungle Pals Dies.

These products are FREE when you purchase from any of our catalogues or from the Online Exclusives.

I coloured the Toucan using Stampin’ Blends. Did you know Toucan’s come in all different colours? I researched them on Google and in the end looked up cartoon images for the Toucan. He was fun to colour!

The colours I used were…

  • poppy Parade
  • Parakeet Party
  • Azure Afternoon
  • Daffodil Delight
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Basic Black

The back ground for this card was coloured using Granny Apple Green, Garden Green, Azure Afternoon and Blueberry Bushel inks with a Blending Brush.

I wanted this card to look lush and bright, with lots of layers of different greens creating depth and flowers in bright colours.

After the Live had wrapped up I decided to add the Black Adhesive Backed Sparkle Gems, as I felt it just need something to finish the flowers…to add a little bit of ‘POP!’

Stippled Roses

Today’s card I have used the Stippled Roses Bundle from the Stampin’ Up! ® Jan – April Mini Catalogue. This is a beautiful detailed stamp with coordinating Dies that not only cut the images out but extra elements as well.

The Softly Stippled Designer Series Paper used in this card can be found in the Jan – Feb Sale-A-Bration Catalogue. When you purchase the Stippled Roses Bundle for $94.50 (AUD) you can get the Softly Stippled DSP for FREE!

I chose to keep this card all the same in colour to also play on the same tone Designer Series Paper, but you could very easily add colour to the Roses and Leaves to change the look completely.

By adding the Vellum die cut leaves under the Pebble Path die cut leaves it softens the look, making it look just that little bit lighter and lacy.

Artistically Inked

For this month’s Let’s Craft Together Blog Hop, Nancy has set a wonderful ‘Picture Inspiration Challenge’ as the theme. Drawing inspiration from the colors in the provided picture, I created this card card using the stunning Artistic Dies and Artistically Inked Stamps by Stampin’ Up! ®.

This card is simple to create by using the Artistic Dies as the focal point and then colouring the different flowers & leaves in what ever colours you want.

When blending the colours from flower to flower or flower to leaf, don’t worry about when one starts or finishes. Just let the colours blend together.

The ‘Happy Birthday’ Sentiment is from the Artistically Inked Stamps.

    Simply Sparkling – Live with Michele

    On Friday’s ‘Live with Michele’ I created this Z-Fold Card and used the Simply Sparkling Bundle by Stampin’ Up!®.

    The Simply Sparkling Bundle is a fun and bubbly bundle, you can let your imagination go with this one, creating cards for all ages . You can stamp the soda can & die cut as is or create the can with the can top, bottom and pull tab in die cuts. The same goes with the fruit…stamp and colour, stamp on coloured cardstock or die cut the fruit using the smaller die pieces. I love the bubbles…again stamp or die cut.

    My suggestion is to have the Adhesive Sheets on hand as some of these pieces are small.

    The Z-Fold card is a simple and versatile Fun Fold. It can be used in a portrait card, as I have done here or in landscape cards (with the fold on the side). The Z-Fold is the base to many other card styles, for example an Easel Card, Double Z-Fold.

    A Z-Fold is created when you fold the card in half and then fold the front of the card back on it’s self. With my card I have added a panel to the front of the card extending across the inside of the card.

    Flight & Airy – Live with Michele

    Last night on my Tuesday Night ‘Live with Michele’ I created this stunning card. I used a NEW Designer Series Paper (DSP) called Light & Airy. This is a sneak peak to one of the DSP’s available in January in the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue by Stampin’ Up!®.

    It is a stunning paper of beautiful watercoloured birds and back grounds. I have used two of the six designs in this card.

    I also used a leaf die from another Bundle – Stippled Roses Bundle, another sneak peak from the 2024 Mini Catalogue by Stampin’ Up!®.

    If you are wanting a copy of these 2 catalogues and you ‘Live in Australia’ please contact me and I will get copies out to you when they become available.

    Hey Chuck – Let’s Craft Together Blog hop

    Welcome to Let’s Craft Together Blog Hop. We are a group of Australian Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators that are coming together to share our creative ideas with you. We are happy that you can join us and hope that we can Inspire you to make creations of your own. Each month we will be showing different ideas based around products, themes and challenges.

    Our theme this month is a ‘Picture Inspiration’, – create a project using the below picture as your inspiration. It may be the colours, images or sketches. This challenge was given to us by Maheswari, I had a lot of fun creating this card, not only with the challenge but with ‘Hey Chuck’ Bundle.

    I have chosen 3 elements from the ‘Picture Inspiration’

    • 3 Rectangle elements
    • Torn Edges
    • Elements from behind the last rectangle

    Hey Chuck

    This is my second card using the ‘Hey Chuck’ Bundle and I seem to be creating a theme with these cards. They are bright and lots of fun, in both creating them as well as enjoying the finished card.

    3 Rectangle elements – My use of the above elements is very broad as my chooks would not stay in the confines of the rectangles.

    Torn Edges – The Lemon Lime Twist card stock is from the White Center Specialty Paper and when torn the white core shows.

    Elements from behind the last rectangle – The die cut sun, wind vane and ‘Rise & Shine’ sign and the elements from behind the last rectangle.

    How to Make….

    • Cut all cardstock and score.
    • Card Mat – Tear approx 1cm off top and bottom of Lemon Lime Twist White Center Specialty Paper and adhere to the card base. Keep torn off pieces, one to be used on the card insert.
      • Tip- If you want the white core to be on the front of the Card Base, have right side up and tear towards yourself.
    • Die cut 3 rectangles with the Deckled Rectangles using the 2nd smallest die.
    • Die cut Sun and Wind Vanes
    • Stamp Chock and Fence images in Memento Tuxedo Black. You can see how I coloured fences and chocks from my YouTube Video -Live with Michele
    • Fences and Chooks coloured with Stampin’ Blends
      • Fences using Blends – Crumb Cake Combo & Bronze
      • Chooks
        1. Bodies- Daffodil Delight Combo, Wild Wheat
        2. Tails – Poppy Parade, Tranquil Tide
        3. Tails – Tranquil Tide, Granny Apple Green, Starry Sky
        4. Tails – Fresh Freesia Combo, Orchid Oasis Light, Blackberry Bliss Combo
    • Sentiment ‘Rise & Shine’
      • Stamp in Early Espresso Ink
      • Use Deckled Rectangles to cut sentiment – there is no die the right size for this, I used a larger die to cut 2 sides & then moved die to cut other 2 sides.
      • With blending brush and Crumb Cake Ink colour the sentiment.
    • Adhere the 3 rectangles to card front, leave room to slip sun behind last rectangle.
    • Using Multi Purpose Glue adhere the fences onto the rectangles.
    • Add dimensionals to the back of the chooks and add to card front.
    • Tuck sun behind the last rectangle.
    • Glue wind vane and sentiment to card front.
    • Card Insert
      • Glue one of the torn Lemon Lime Twist White Center Specialty Paper pieces to the bottom edge of the card insert.
      • Add fence and Wind Vane
      • Stamp ‘It’s your Birthday’ sentiment with Early Espresso Ink.

    Masterfully Made – Live with Michele

    Today on ‘Live with Michele’ I made a card for the Just Add Ink ‘Sketch’ Challenge using Masterfully Made Suite Collection from the Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalogue.

    Just Add Ink #667

    It’s time for the new Just Add Ink Challenge. This week we have a Sketch that has been suggested by Di. There are so many possibilities for how this Sketch can be used. We are looking forward to seeing what you all make of it. Have fun!

    I love challenges because they stretch me, take me out of my comfort zone. They are good if your ‘Mojo’ is a bit lost, as it gives you a starting point. You can copy it as is or change some of the elements as per shapes…circles to square. Turn it around so instead of a portrait layout it becomes a landscape layout.

    Make sure you head over to Just Add Ink and check what the Design Team have created, make sure you also look at the other entries…Better still create a project and add it to the challenge, have fun!

    Masterfully Made

    You can watch the attached video below to see how I created this card.

    The Vellum circles were cut with the Deckled Circle Dies 162286 from the Sept – Dec 2023 Mini Catalogue, these will be available to order from the 6th September.

    Hey Chuck

    This week on my ‘Live with Michele’ I created this fun card using the Stampin’ Up!® ‘Hey Chuck’ Bundle. I was inspired by lots of different cards created by some very talented Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators.

    The rooster – Chuck! I coloured using the Stampin Blends, on my video below you will see what colours I used and how they were used to create this ‘Loud and a bit Crazy’ Rooster.

    I also added clouds with a template made using the Basic Boarders Die and Starry Sky Link brushed on with a blending Brush.

    Cheerful Daisies

    Today I’m taking part in the Just Add Ink Colour Challenge and I am using Stampin’ Up!® Cheerful Daisies Bundle from the Annual Catalogue.

    Just Add Ink #jai664

    “Make a project using the colours in the challenge swatch.

    These are such beautiful colours together and very easy to use. They blend well together and give you a soft delicate lacy feel….a modern old world feel!

    Make sure you head over to Just Add Ink and check what the Design Team have created, make sure you also look at the other entries….better still create a project and add it to the challenge, have fun!

    Cheerful Daisies Bundle

    How to make this card…

    When creating a card, I like to let it grow…I may have an idea in mind but that doesn’t mean that is how my card will turn out. My layout here is very basic and one that I use a lot ….2 layers on a card base.

    My card front or top layer, I like to have a bit of texture. Here I have used the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks & Pool Party Ink to create texture…with the ink darker towards the middle and blending out to nothing around the edges. I also used the Blending brush to add some colour around the edges to take away the stark white of Basic White Cardstock.

    The fine detail branches also cut from Basic White Cardstock were coloured with a Blending Brush and Lost Lagoon Ink. I die cut the branches first and then gently run the brush down the branches, taking care not to bend the branches. If you used your brush in a circular motion you could easily damage the die cut. This can also give you more texture as the ink get caught on the edges of the die cut.

    The Daisies were stamped onto Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper with VersaMark Ink and embossed with White Embossing Powder. Using a water painter paint your image with water and then add small amounts of diluted (with Water) Fresh Freesia Ink to the center of the flower, letting the ink flow down the petals. Let that dry off before adding more ink and less diluted. The trick with this I have found (through trial and error….lot’s of errors) is to let your work dry off a little before going back with more colour.
