Art Gallery Bundle Stampin' Up! Kylie's International Highlights Winners Blog Hop

Hello my crafty friends!  Are you ready for a sneak peek from the upcoming Jan-June Mini Catalogue?  Today I'm featuring products from the Fine Floral Art Suite, which is so amazing! I know you'll love it so much!  


Also today, I'm excited to be part of Kylie Bertucci's International Highlights Winners Blog Hop this month!  Thank you to everyone who voted on my card and thank you for your support. 




The theme for this hop is Thank You.  Here's my card!




My first look at this entire suite was at OnStage@Home, and I couldn't wait to ink up the floral image.  It's a 2-step stamp and it's very forgiving, which means you don't have to line it up exactly - how awesome is that! 

Let's talk embossing!  The brand new Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder provides such fabulous texture, wouldn't you agree!  I had originally planned a full embossed layer, but cut part of the centre out in favour of the Golden Garden Designer Specialty Acetate (pssst...it's gold on one side, silver on the other)




I used Smoky Slate & Gray Granite for the flower, and Pear Pizzazz for the leaves. Then added Wink of Stella for a bit of sparkle.  No fussy cutting here - I used the Floral Gallery dies!




Don't forget to decorate the inside of your card!







I used vellum cut using one of the Stitched So Sweetly dies and placed it behind the flower, then wrapped Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon around the layer. I adhered the layer to a Gray Granite base.  Next, I heat embossed the sentiment (from the Art Gallery set) in silver.  And you guessed it - I cut it using another die from the Floral Gallery dies.  A few Basic Rhinestone Jewels and voila, the card is complete!


The Fine Floral Art Suite & Art Gallery Bundle will be available for purchase on January 5, 2021.  You can get this suite plus any of our other gorgeous products from the new Mini catalogue when you join my team, on December 1, 2020!

Peace on Earth Ink on Vellum Christmas Card & Blog Hop!

Happy Sunday everyone and thank you for popping by today!  The theme for this month was to design a Christmas card that's a fun-fold, gift card holder or any style.  I went with 'any style'.

Here's my card!



About a month ago I was playing with inks on vellum, left them to dry and kind of forgot about them.  You may have seen other demonstrators using this technique - it's fun and super messy.  Anyway, having watched fellow demonstrator Barry from Mitosu Crafts make a gorgeous ink on vellum card, I decided to create this card!



There are a few different ways to do this technique.  Here's how I Inked the Vellum:

  • I cut a sheet of vellum in quarters, then used my Spritzer filled with rubbing alcohol to cover the surface of the vellum 
  • Next, I put one drop of Pacific Point Ink Refill on one side of the vellum, and one drop of Coastal Cabana on the other
  • I spritzed rubbing alcohol again, but just on the drops of ink
  • I picked up the paper to allow the ink to run, then spritzed close to the vellum to help create un-inked areas
Note:  if you want deeper tones, you may want to wait until til try, then start the process again.

I didn't use my heat tool to dry the ink, and I think that helped my vellum from curling.  If I had, I would have taped the vellum down to prevent the curling from the heat tool. 

On Tuesday November 17, I'll be doing a Facebook Live on my Lolly and Sand Page to make a very similar card.  All the measurements will be given during the video.



I embossed the tree image from Rooted in Nature using Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder, then cut it using one of the Nature's Root Dies.  Next, I embossed the sentiment, from Wrapped in Christmas using White Stampin' Emboss Powder.  You'll find the Polar Bear die in the Snow Globe Scenes dies.  For the finishing touches I used our Adhesive-Backed Snowflakes & Playful Pets ribbon.

I love this card and I hope you do as well.  It's not a typical traditional Christmas card, however it is unique and I'm certain the recipient will be delighted!


OOOH...Guess what coming soon!!!!

Hooray for You! Quite Curvy Bundle Stampin' Up! Birthday Card

Hello my crafty friends!  I'm having so much fun creating with the Quite Curvy Bundle - the possibilities are endless!  And, today I have an elegant birthday card!  Let's take a look!



I started with a base of Gray Granite (all the measurements are given in the video below). Next, I die cut the Blushing Bride cardstock.  For those who don't heat emboss, do check out my video...it's quick, easy and gives your card lots of pizzazz!  Behind the vellum is Peony Garden DSP - lovely and subtle.  I used paper from that same DSP for the flower, and Gray Granite for the outline piece - both cut using the Poppy Moments Dies.  




I used another design from the Peony Garden DSP for the flower, Gray Granite for the outline piece, and Brushed Metallic cardstock for the flower centre - all cut using the Poppy Moments Dies.  The Whisper White 'greenery' was cut using the Forever Flourishing dies, and the gold bits are from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper - gorgeous!





I just thought of another great thing about the Quite Curvy stamp set - because they're curvy, you can't stamp them crooked!  Bonus!

I kind of messed up a bit in the video - oops, but I fixed it after the video and it looks great! 😊




I am so impressed with these dies from Stampin' Up!  They are curvy and fabulous!  If you wish to purchase any of the supplies you've seen in my card you'll find images of the products - just click on them to shop!
