Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop October 2019

Hello and welcome to Kylie's Demonstrator training Monthly Team Blog Hop!

I have made a sweet Christmas Card using the beautiful Wrapped in Plain Suite.

I started with a Cherry Cobbler Card Base measuring 21cm x 14.8cm scored and folded in half. 

I then cut another piece of Cherry Cobbler to measure 10cm x 14.4cm. I cut a piece of the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series paper to 14,4cm x 5 cm and glued it to the 10cm x 14.4cm piece at the bottom. I then cut a piece of the pretty Shaded Spruce Ribbon and glued it into position at the top of the DSP. Then glued this layer to the card base.

I stamped the sentiment from the Brightly Gleaming stamp set in Cherry Cobbler on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock then cut it out. I stamped the Christmas Tree in Shaded Spruce on Whisper White card stock and punched it out. Then stamp the tree trunk in Soft Suede as it is easier to position once punched out.

I cut a stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I popped this up in the centre of the card using dimensionals and popped the tree and the sentiment up using dimensionals.

The gold star was a left over piece from another card using the Stitched Stars Dies. I had kept them for another project and decided to use it to top the sweet little Christmas Tree in this card. I used mini dimensionals to place it at the top of the tree.

Colour INKspiration #65

Welcome to the Colour INKspiration Challenge #65!

I love this beautiful inspiration photo for this challenge. Stunning!

I had so many ideas floating around with these colours and actually purchased a stamp set to make my card this time. I am not talking about the stamp set that I actually used as I had chosen another. But in the middle of that creation I was constantly thinking about what I could do with this stamp set instead. I am sure you also have ideas that turn into other creations once realised.

I started with a Blackberry Bliss card base measuring 21cm x14.8cm scored and folded in half. I then added a Merry Merlot layer measuring 10.3cm x 14.5cm and glued this to the card front.

I cut a piece of Gray Granite card stock to measure 10cm x 14.4cm and embossed this piece with the Sublte 3D Embossing Folder. I love the texture that this adds to card stock.

I stamped the wreath from the Tidings All Around stamp set in Gray Granite ink on Gray Granite card stock. i then cut it out using the coordinating die. I cut out some of the foliage from the die set with Blackberry Bliss and Merry Merlot. I assembled by popping the wreath onto the card using Dimensionals. And glued the foliage in place.

I stamped the hello sentiment from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set in Memento™Black Tuxedo ink and cut it out with the Bouquet Bunch framelit™to create a tag. I tied this on the wreath with a piece of Linen Thread.

I really like how this card turned out and I hope you do to. I love wreaths and find them so versatile to use.

Creature Comforts October Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my blog!

What a great theme for this time of year. It is Spring in the Southern Hemisphere where I reside and Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. Great Seasons as they are not too hot and not too cold - perfect I think and perfect to get cosy and comfortable!

I love the Still Scenes Bundle in the Holiday Catalogue. Just the most gorgeous stamps. I love this particular stamp with the cute and cosy cottage. So I decided to create a Wintery Christmas card that may evoke thoughts of cosying up beside a warm open fire. One of the best creature comforts any time of the year.

I started with a Mossy meadow card base measuring 21cm x 14.8cm scored and folded in half. I glued another piece of Mossy Meadow measuring 14.4cm x 10cm to that. I then cut another piece of Mossy Meadow to 13.9cm x 9.5cm and embossed it with the Winter Knit 3D Embossing Folder. Then glued this on top of the other layers.

I stamped the cottage image on Whisper White card stock in Memento™Tuxedo Black. I cut it out using the coordinating die. I used the Shimmery Crystal Effects to create the effect of snow on the roof, the tree and the foreground and let it dry. Then I coloured in the cottage in Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends, The trees in Mossy Meadow Stampin' Blends and the foreground Gray Granite Stampin' Blends.

I die cut a stitched circle from the Vellum. I also cut a Stitched Nested Label in the Woodgrain from the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper. 

I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas in Versa Mark™on a scrap piece of Mossy Meadow card stock. Then sprinkled some White Stampin' Emboss Powder over the top and heated it with the heat tool. I punched it out with the Classic Label Punch.
To assemble I stuck the Cherry Cobbler Striped Ribbon down to the centre of the base using glue. I popped the Woodgrain Label on top of that using Dimensionals. Then I used Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the base of the vellum circle. Then placed the cottage image on top of that with Dimensionals. Then glued that to the woodgrain nested label. And your card is done!

Stampers Showcase Bog Hop September

It is time for the stampers showcase blog hop for September.

This months theme is Holiday Catalogue Favourites.

Now this was a real struggle for me as the whole catalogue is filled with my favourite things. Anything Christmas is always a favourite and this catalogue is brimming with beautiful products to help you create a bit of your own magic this Christmas.

I decided to chose the first bundle I purchased from the catalogue when it was released.

The Brightly Gleaming Bundle and Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper jumped out at me straight away with the Copper mixed with Mossy Meadow, Pretty Peacock and Night of Navy! Simply stunning!

I started with a Night of Navy Card base 21cm x 14.8cm scored and folded in half. 

I then glued a piece of the DSP measuring 10cm x 14.4cm on top of that. Then a piece of the DSP measuring 6.5cm x 10.8cm glued onto another piece of Night of Navy measuring 7cm x 11.3cm. I then glued this to the base of the card.

I Cut out the second largest stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Stamp set on the bottom right of the circle in Versa Mark™ then sprinkled with Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder. I then heat set it with the heat tool. I also stamped the Holly in  Versa Mark™ then sprinkled with Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder. I then heat set it with the heat tool. I coloured the leaves of the Holly with Mossy Meadow Blends. The berries were coloured in using the gorgeous new Celestial Copper Delicate Metallic Ink and a Blender Pen. Oh my! This ink is just amazing and gives a beautiful shine without the need to heat emboss. Perfect for making  quite a few cards at once. Make sure you treat yourself to some as you will love it as much as I do!

I fussy cut the Holly and popped this up on my Vanilla sentiment circle layer with Dimensionals. Then popped that layer using Dimensionals onto the card base. And your card is finished!
