The Artful Stampers -Team Challenge Blog Hop - Colour Challenge #7

Hey Hello,
We have been blog hopping for 7 weeks now. How awesome is that? I am really enjoying these challenges...



Loving these colours together...



Here is a little circle pop up card I made, and in a video...I hope it works for you, a first for me, BUT it is side on, just turn your head... lol...

The card (a work in progress), sorry you'll have to turn your head and I'm not sure how to slow it down, a first for me...
Here are the still pics that may be easier to see...

Looking from above
Looking from one side
Looking from number two side
Looking from number three side
Looking from number four side
 AND the use of the Gift box punch board has come in real handy


The open gift box with card
The partly closed gift box
The fully closed gift box
And the finished card in a box decorated. The box is a little high, and it is the 2.5 in x 2.5 in by 1.75in high... made using the Gift Box punch board. I love it. Sooo easy to whip up a little box.
I hope you have enjoyed this little presentation...lol...

Artful Stampers - Team Challenge Blog Hop - Sketch Challenge #2

We have another wonderful blog hop...A second Sketch Challenge.

I had fun with this one and have since stamped a little "congratulations" at the bottom of the card. I've only made one this time around, time limited...

The challenge

The colours: Pistachio Pudding, Coastal Cabana and Crisp Cantaloupe. 
Using the Markers I coloured in the butterfly, a spritz of water to blend the colours on the edges, then I cut them out. lol...  Add three flags to the reverse. 

Sponged the background with the 3 colours and "Bokeh'd" the background with the white craft ink pad and a single Dauber. Add a few pearls and stick it all together.

The Artful Stampers -Team Challenge Blog Hop- Colour Challenge #2

Hello
Again another challenge, this one is a biggy, as you would see from my previous cards I have made, I'm not a hugely colourful user. So this definitely a challenge for me...

We are having fun sharing ideas and commenting on each others blogs. Please share the love and comment on these lovely ladies work.




You may have come from Riches Stitches Blog:


And my take on this colourful challenge after I looked through my entire collection of papers, cardstock and inks, devastated I was missing a whole colour...Garden Green. 

Disheartened that I was missing a colour, AND I really wanted to play. Battling on I resorted to my computer and got stuck into using my MDS (My Digital Studio). I made up a scrap book page of my girls out in the hay shed. I had heaps of fun, even though it was a bit slow on my computer. I used an already created template in MDS and changed the colours to suit this challenge. I added a couple more embellishments and found a photo to match. I had lovely fun and I really should use it more. It is so very easy to play with and no mess... 
SO here you go:

Christmas cracker

Here is a christmas cracker I made at a workshop today, without the crack...

Using the Envelope Punch Board and the Scoring Board, it was quite easy to make. I made the cracker as wide as to fit the belt buckle under the belly band. Had fun and so did the ladies that made them. I did change the black belly band to a more narrow fit for the buckle, looked better. You have to start somewhere. Have fun.
I do have the measurements scribbled on a bit of paper, and will try to make up a picture one day soon for you.

Hung up on baby cards...

Hi, I have again gone silly with baby cards...

I love the idea that you can stamp and cut out the mage fairly quickly. and even if you dont want to stamp, you can still get a cutout of the shapes you want.

AND the other idea that crossed my mind while playing today, is if you dont have the same colour cardstock, matching DSP (designer paper series) and ink. Then it's easier to mix them up...

Go on and jump in, have some fun and make a stack...:)  



Kissing technique. Ink a patterned stamp and place a more solid image stamp on top to ink it. Then stamp it onto paper. I also inked the emboss folder for background paper.
Using the same inked embossed folder stamping, for the background and then DSP for the onesie. Not matching exact colours, still looks great.
DSP for the background and solid stamping for the the onesie in matching colour. Mixing colours is easy.
DSP all over. And if you don't have enough DSP for just one square, cut it out of the middle of the background and then cover it up.

DSP all over again, but if you if you don't have enough solid base colour use another, in this case I used black.

Seasonally Scattered and Bermuda Bay

Having fun with Bermuda Bay...I am so stuck on this gorgeous colour.

Basically a quick look at a few cards I have been playing with today...

This one really needed sparkle, a few jewels later... Makes me feel happy. I used Bermuda Bay, Real Red, Early Espresso. Seasonally Scattered and Hardwood. Sorry the pic was a bit yellowy.


AND showing the detail. I love the "Merry" Stamp for my christmas cards this year.


Here's another one:
And using Dazzling Details for a  silver sparkle...


AND the last one, which I am not sure of, but I think I like it...
Bermuda Bay ink and Lost Lagoon cardstock just to add change. I think they work together. What do you think?

Sneak Peek - Seasonally Scattered

Hello, I have trialed a new stamp set from the new Seasonal Catalogue 2014, Seasonally Scattered. 

I just love the way it stamps, for embossing, on the naturals and the well known whisper white... I have only trialed one of the stamps out of three. Keep you itching for more...

How did I get this stamp so early? Because as a Stampin' Up! Demo, I am allowed to order some of the new products early...Number 1 perk being a Demo...

Here you go I have combined all the photos from instagram using MDS...awesome.
