Colour INKspiration #68

You may have arrived here from the amazing Julia Quinn

Hello and welcome to the Colour INKspiration #68 Crew Blog Hop!

This is a gorgeous colour combination and one of the prettiest for a Christmas card I think!

The beautiful colours for this challenge are Shaded Spruce, Blueberry Bushel, Pretty Peacock, Coastal Cabana and Silver Foil.

I used a Shaded Spruce Card base measuring 21cm x 14.8cm scored and folded in half.

I then cut a piece of Shimmery White Card Stock to measuring 14.4cm x  10cm.
I used an Aqua Painter to place some Coastal Cabana ink on the Shimmery White card stock to create a wash background.

I stamped each of the bells on Shimmery White card stock in Coastal Cabana, Shaded Spruce and Blueberry Bushel and used the Aqua Painter to colour each image in. I then cut them out with the coordinating die.

I cut a piece of the beautiful Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon and coloured it with my Dark Shaded Spruce Stampin' Blend. I wrapped this around the Shimmery White card layer and secured with glue at the back. I then glued this to the Shaded Spruce card base. 

I popped the three little bells on the top of the Shimmery White card base using Dimensionals. I used the Silver Metallic Thread to make the bells look like they are hanging from the top of the card. I then adhered the Snowflake Sequins around the bells with glue. 

I stamped the Sentiment on a piece of Shimmery White card stock in Pretty Peacock and cut this out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and placed this over the ribbon adhering with Dimensionals.

Stampers Showcase Blog Hop - Winter Wonderland

Hello and welcome to the Stampers Showcase "Winter Wonderland" Blog Hop!
it has been fun to create for this challenge. I have used Designer Series Paper to create my project for this challenge. I love all things Snowman and isn't this Let it Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper just the cutest!

I started with a Pool Party card base measuring 21cm x 14.8cm scored and folded in half. I then cut another piece of Pool Party card stock to 10cm x 14.4cm and added this layer to the card base using glue to adhere.  I then cut the Snowflake DSP to 9.7cm x 14.1cm. I also cut the Real Red and Pool Party Striped DSP to 14.4cm x 2.5cm and glued the Striped piece to the left hand side of the Snowflake DSP.

I cut the image of the Snowman out of the DSP using a Oval Layering Die. The a Piece of Real Red card stock using a larger sized oval die. I then cut a larger scalloped oval out of Pool Party DSP. I glued the snowman piece onto the Real Red piece then glued these to the Scalloped Oval Pool Party card stock. 

 I used dimensionals to pop this layered image up in the centre of the card. I then stamped the Sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas in Real Red ink on Whisper White card stock and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch. I popped this sentiment up with dimensionals to look like it is being held by the cute Snowman.

I have recently purchased the Very Versailles stamp set and have not had a chance to use it until now. I have created a simple Thank You card for someone special.

I used a Balmy Blue card base measuring 21cm x 10.5 cm scored and folded in half. I then cut another measuring 10cm x 14.4cm and glued this to the base.
I cut a piece of Pacific point to 10.5cm x 8cm.

I then created the Balmy Blue frame using the Heirloom Frames Dies and 3D embossing folder.

I cut a pice of Whisper White card stock to 7cm x 9.5cm and ran it through my Big Shot™ using the Subtle Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder. Then popped the Frame over this piece using dimensionals. Then attached the Pacific Point layer to the base using more dimensionals.

I stamped the image behind the sentiment in Pacific Blue on Whisper white and fussy cut it out. I popped this up on dimensionals on the Whisper White layer.

I stamped the sentiment in Merry Merlot on Whisper White and cut it out with the Stitched Label Die small stitched circle. I also cut a piece of Pear Pizazz using a small layering circle die. I glued these two layers together and adhered to the Pacific Point image layer.

Kylie's Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Team Blog Hop November

Hello and welcome to my blog! 

Thank you for stopping by for Kylie's Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Team Blog Hop!

Things are warming up over here for our Summer and Christmas. I love the Still Scenes Bundle and wanted to create an Australian Christmas scene for this challenge.

I was reminded of a home that my brother owned with the house stamp. I have coloured it in to resemble my brothers two story Red Cedar Cottage. He also planted and maintained a magnificent garden.

I started out with a Sahara Sand Card Base. I then cut another piece of card stock to measure 10cm x 14.4cm and cut the hole for the snow globe before using the 3D Subtle Textured Embossing Folder on that piece.

I stamped the snow globe base on a piece of Sahara Sand using Early Espresso ink then moving the ink around using an Aqua Painter. I love the way this turned out. It was very simple to do.

I cut the background of the snow globe out in Whisper White card stock and brayered this with Balmy Blue ink. 

I stamped the house and tree image in Memento™ Tuxedo Black on Whisper White card stock and used the coordinating die to cut it out. I then coloured it in using the Stampin' Blends listed below.

 I wanted to create Gum Trees so I used the bullet end of the Old Olive Stampin' Blend to dot the leaves on the tree. 

I then coloured the Christmas Tree in Old Olive Stampin' Blends to resemble the Christmas Tree in Apex Park in the town of Berry, NSW. I grew up in this town and every Christmas Eve the combined Churches hosted Carols in the Park for the town and a tree was decorated for this event.  Almost everyone from the township went. We took candles and a picnic. It is a very happy childhood memory. After colouring the tree I placed the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots on the tree and punched a star out of the Gold Foil using the Twinkle Builder Punch.

After assembling the scene and putting the snow globe together I placed a Linen Thread bow between the base and the globe.

This was a fun project to work on and reminded me of many Christmases and family events.

I am sure that  many of you would like to create with the Still Scenes Bundle. The ladies that attend my monthly classes loved creating a Snow Scene card with this Bundle. There is something magical about a snow globe.  Whilst there is nothing to shake in my card I still feel it creates a wonderful Australian Christmas Scene. I had thought of putting sand in the globe to shake but there is no sand around the tree in the park or in the township at Christmas.

Hope you are having a wonderful week and are turning your thoughts to getting creative for Christmas and New Year. Perhaps even making some Christmas Cards!
