Share It Sunday – Thoughtful Expressions

Thank you for joining us for our Sunday blog hop (of course in Australia this goes live at 3:00am Monday morning, but it is a great start to the working week when we wake up!) There is no theme for this hop, it is for each of us to choose what project we want to share.

I participate in a collaboration where we hold an invitation only event for our customers every quarter. I presented a water coloured card at the last event.

You can watch the replay of my presentation below.

Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop – Simply Zinnia

Welcome to another Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You may be starting at my blog or landed here from another one.
Each month there is a new Inspirational challenge. This month we have a picture challenge. You can either use the color challenge to create a project unrelated to the image – There will generally be 5-6 colors for the color challenge you may use some or all colors plus Stampin’ Up! basics range (black, white, vanilla) or use the image subject as inspiration for your project any way you can tie them together is fine. If you are feeling super creative, use BOTH! This is the inspiration for this month:

My card uses the new Simply Zinnia bundle which is the new Online Exclusive available from the 5th March. I couldn’t get the Orchid Oasis into my card, it was looking too dark against the pastel colours, but I managed to use all the others.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Detailed Dogwood

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you! This month’s theme is “Sale-A-Bration” – remember that these products are only available until the end of the month and then they are gone forever! For today’s hop, I am using one of my favourite stamps from this year’s offering – Detailed Dogwood.

I punched a circle from Masking Paper and blended over it. Without removing the Masking paper, I stamped the floral images onto my card front.

Be sure to hop all the way around and see what other Sale-A-Bration products have been showcased. Please leave comments for us – we love getting feedback about our work!

Notes Of Nature Split Card

I am happy to be taking part in Kylie’s Monthly International Blog Highlights again.
The theme for this hop is “Thank you”. Many people forget those simple words. I have seen people’s days brightened because someone said a simple thank you to them.
Show your appreciation to people in your lives who have inspired you, helped you or supported you by sending them a thank you card.

I made this card for my Sunday Facebook live a couple of weeks ago and I was so happy with the final card. It uses the Notes Of Nature bundle with unusual colouring. If you are looking for more ideas to use this bundle, there is still time to join the Creativity Abounds Nature’s Stamp Camp. You can find all the details about the Stamp Camp and how to join in the fun here.

Let’s Craft Together – Heartfelt Hexagons

Thank you for joining us for this month’s Let’s Craft Together blog hop. We are a group of
multi-cultural Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators in Australia who have developed a strong friendship though our love of stamping and our admiration of each other’s style of crafting.

Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop – Enduring Beauty

Welcome to the first Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop for 2024. You may be starting at my blog or landed here from another one.
Each month there is a new Inspirational challenge. This month we have a picture challenge. You can either use the color challenge to create a project unrelated to the image – There will generally be 5-6 colors for the color challenge you may use some or all colors plus Stampin’ Up! basics range (black, white, vanilla) or use the image subject as inspiration for your project any way you can tie them together is fine. If you are feeling super creative, use BOTH! This is the inspiration for this month:

This is my interpretation of the picture:

This was my first play with the Enduring Beauty bundle. I knew that the Daffidol Delight wouldn’t show up if I blended it directly onto the Melon Mambo, so I used White Craft Stampin’ Ink first and then blended the Daffodil Delight over that.

Technique Squad Blog Hop – Detailed Dogwood

Thank you for joining us for the Technique Squad’s monthly blog hop.
Each month we use a different technique. Hopefully our projects will inspire you to give the technique a try. This month the technique the we are show casing is “Vellum Colouring”

I have taken the most simple way of adding colour to vellum, and just stamped onto my Vellum Basics Specialty DSP. I chose this vellum as it has the texture on it which adds a lovely background to my stamping. As I started writing this post, I realised that I have used the same stamp set that I used for last month’s whitewashing technique. (If you missed that one, you can see it here). This shows that I really love this stamp set, and that it is extremely versatile and works with a number of techniques! This is a level 2 Sale-A-Bration item and can be redeemed for free when you spend $180. An added bonus is that it coordinates with the Petal Park Builder Punch.

Hop around and see how the other ladies have to coloured their vellum.
