When I use a sketch as my inspiration, I basically look at the design elements
and decide to break down all the components...
Even though they have used lots of different coloured patterns, you don't
have create your layout exactly the same as the design.
It is just a guide, to follow NOT COPY!!


Sooo this layout I have kept it very simple...I have used the photos as my layering.
Limited stamping, BUT the focus is on the Sale-A-Bration FREE products.
Botanical Butterfly DSP and Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets.
AND Butterfly Due Punch and Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.
AS well as Designer Series Paper from Occasions Catalogue called Tropical Escape 6 x 6.

Look at the shimmer of these Foil Sheets


Whisper White 12x12 Cardstock with Black A4 Cardstock for the centre.
I cut 2 strips of Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheets to add to the edge of the black.

I cut the foil with Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies to create frames.
I added a small piece of Botanical Butterfly DSP to behind the photos,
before sticking this to the black I cut away the butterflies
from the design to add to my page.
I used Blushing Bride Ink to stamp the sentiment from Strong and Beautiful



 

I did use RETIRED Black Foil Sheets as other frames.
I fussy cut the flowers from Tropical Escape DSP to add to the layout.
Cut out the Congrats out of the Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheets (Sunshine Wishes Dies)
The date stamp has been stamped with Pick a Pennent Stamp Set and
Blushing Bride Classic Stamp Pad Ink.





I absolutely love the FREE products...
The
Botanical Butterfly DSP and Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets
is a FREE choice with each $90 you spend between Jan3 and Mar 31st.

Stamp n Hop - SAB – Sale-A-Bration




Welcome to Stamp 'N Hop Blog Hop for SAB - Sale-A-Bration
 You may have just joined me from Anastasia
she always creates AMAZING projects.
I am using the Let It Ride Cling Stamp Set, I know this one is going to be a favourite.

Mine is a very simple and easy card that I whipped up this afternoon with my SIL.
She shared it today on Demonstrator Planning Place... I just had to make it.
She still had everything set up from when she made this card. I own this stamp
BUT have not used it yet... I might have to have a play with it in my own studio.


We used the Stamparatus to create this card, we placed the horse in position.
We added the ink to the last horse first , I used Soft Suede ink...
We used full strength ink, then using the stamparatus hinge action we added
2nd generation inking to the 2nd horse and
then 3rd generation inking to the last horse. The ink is very light.
As this was a bit of a rush job I didn't take any progress photos...
See how the horse colour goes from light to dark. Such a great effect!!!


If you want to follow us on any further hops here is what is coming up.

Global Stamping Friends EXTRAORDINARY - Occasion - Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop




Welcome to Global Stamping Friends EXTRAORDINARY Blog Hop
All 17 of us are focusing on the recently released Occasions catalogue
and Sale-A-Bration FREE products.

I am doing this project very last minute...BUT I knew it had to EXTRA SPECIAL.
So I quickly browsed Pinterest for an idea to create some that lil bit extra special.
I found a card made by Lisa Curcio who shared a you tube how to make the

POP UP CORNER SWING PANEL CARD.

So I decided to make it out of the beautiful All My Love Designer Series Paper
and Lovely Lipstick  & Whisper White cardstock....
As well as using co-ordinating Meant To Be Cling Stamp Set
and matchingBe Mine Stitched Framelits Dies.
PERFECT for my Valentine, My Husband of almost 29yrs.

So this product quickly comes together with a few lil tricks to make it sit
together properly to form a corner card with a swing panel.
Watching this video made it a whole lot easier.
You start with a 8" x 8" piece of cardstock, scored at 4" on both directions.
Score the bottom quadrants on an angle as directed in the video. Then trim as directed.
You will end up with something like this.



I then cut 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 pieces for the inside sentiment and the DSP cover.
Then I used the Heart to cut out the of the DSP cover
 



Next I decorated the inside with Vellum and the Filigree Heart 


Here is a full view of the card...


I had to use a sticky dot to hold in place to photograph
BUT this panel needs to be moved, so it can be folded up!!!
Will photograph that tomorrow.


Thank you for joining me and the rest of the Bloggers for Global Stamping Friends.

Colour Combo - Jan 2019







Welcome to Colour Combo January 2019 Blog Hop
I can't quite believe that it is already 2019, hope this year doesn't go as quick as 2018.
We are off to wonderful start to the year here in Queensland Australia,
lots of BEAUTIFUL rain.

Speaking of Beautiful, the colours for this hop go so well together.
We have Cajun Craze, Coastal Cabana and Gorgeous Grape.
I cannot wait to see what all the other participants create.
You may be starting with me or have hopped from Cheryl

Following on from a theme that Stampin' Up! released at Nov OnStage 2018
Simple Stamping, I have decided to make 3 cards...

Simple Stamping is simply that Stamps, Ink and Cardstock.
I actually found it harder than I thought as I LOVE to layer and add dimensions.
You can STEP it up with Embellishments and Layering.

So I chose the FREE stamp set Sprinkled With Love which is a photo polymer,
which makes it very easy to line up to create the design.





Isn't it a beautiful stamp set
FREE you ask, if you purchase $90 AUD Stampin' Up! products
during Sale-A-Bration promotion you get to choose a FREE product.
More about that later.

My Simple Stamping Card is as follows
I chose to use Very Vanilla Cardstock as my base of my initial stamping.
This piece of card is cut at 5" x 3 1/2"

I stamped the cupcake base in Cajun Craze ink

Then I used Coastal Cabana ink for the icing layer between cupcake and frosting
Then used Gorgeous Grape ink for the frosting on the cake..

Then I added the sentiment Sprinkled with Love above the cupcake,
in Coastal Cabana Ink.

I added a layer of Coastal Cabana behind my Very Vanilla
This piece of card is cut at 5 1/4" x 3 3/4"



Then for the Casual Stamping Card is almost exactly the same as the Simple Card
But this time I added another colour - Mango Melody ink to add the sprinkles.
AND a couple of Glitter Enamer Dot embellishments, in Gorgeous Grape colour.
I also added a bit of Wink of Stella to the Frosting.



My Avid Stamping Card (Stepped up version)
has all the things I LOVE to include on my cards - Layering.
 I stamped the same cupcake again exactly the same as before.
BUT this time I Stamped it again and cut it out to layer it up with dimenstionals.

I also stamped off/2nd generation stamping of the Frosting
to make a lighter coloured frosting on top of the Gorgeous Grape.
I fussy cut this one out as well and then added some Wink of Stella to give it shimmer.

I then stamped the sentiment on a piece of Very Vanilla and then cut it
with the Triple Banner Punch to create a peak.
Then I cut up a scrap piece of Gorgeous Grape slightly larger than the very vanilla banner
and added it as a layer behind the sentiment.

This time I ran all of my coloured cardstock mats and cupcake and sentiment
through the Bigshot in the Subtle Embossing Folder
to add some texture and layering to my Avid card.

 Very Vanilla Cardstock  5" x 3 1/2"
Coastal Cabana Cardstock  5 1/4" x 3 3/4"
Gorgeous Grape Cardstock 5 1/2" x 3 15/16" (almost 4")
Card Base is Cajun Craze 5 7/8" x 4 1/4"
 



 


I always try to remember to stamp on the inside, not just the sentiment.
And I create a matching envelope too.
I do hope that you LOVE my Beginner, Casual and Avid Stamping.
Here are some close up photos of the cards.








Up next is Jo Blackman with her gorgeous creations.
