Technique Tuesday – Spotlight On Nature

Thank you for joining us for our Technique Tuesday blog hop. The theme this month is “Vintage”. This isn’t one of my go to stamping styles. After giving it some thought, I used the Spotlight On Nature stamp set.

I love the little embossed post mark (which I might have put on the wrong side!). This is in the Perennial Postage die set. This is the first time I have used that die, but it certainly won’t be the last.

Let’s Craft Together – Attention Shoppers

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. Each month one of us sets a challenge that we use for the blog hop. This month’s challenge is a Tic Tac Toe challenge that was set by Carolina Evans.

For my card I have used the top right to bottom left diagonal line. My two favourite colours is a difficult one – that often changes depending on my mood of the day! I always love the pink and grey combination, so I have gone with that for this challenge.

I stamped directly onto the 2024-2026 In Color DSP and then coloured with my Stampin’ Blends. Another gift bag on the inside of my card was the finishing touch.

Share It Sunday Blog Hop – Country Birdhouse

Thank you for joining us for our Sunday blog hop (of course in Australia this goes live at 1:00am 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 cannot claim this as an original concept. I have CASE-d it from a German demonstrator Jane Ullrich. You can view her German video here

This is the front of my card:

The wow happens when you open the card and have a little house popping up!

Below is my Facebook live where I made the card. When I did my live I hadn’t converted to imperial, so I don’t give many imperial measurements. All the measurements are underneath the video.

Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop – Country Flowers

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:

I am loving the Country Flowers bundle. There are so many gorgeous images to combine. I used all the colours in my design.

May CASE Challenge

I am really late with this month’s CASE challenge. I have had issues with my eye (again) and timing didn’t go to plan. As a result. my CASE challenge will now run from mid month.

The card for this month is a corner flip card. This sample lets the DSP do all the work for you.

I made a different sample in my Facebook live showing the assembly of the card. This is the card that I made during that live:

Below is the replay of my Facebook live showing the assembly of the card

The PDF tutorial that I mention can be downloaded here. Please make your card and upload a photo here. I am looking forward to seeing different variations on this card theme.

    Make It Masculine Blog Hop

    Thank you for joining us for today’s blog hop. This time we have a masculine theme. We sometimes find masculine cards challenging, but there are lots of masculine options in the new annual catalogue.

    I purchased this bundle because when my husband saw it in the catalogue her LOVED it! This is a fun fold card that opens up like this:

    This suite is so good, that The Aussie Crafting Collective (a collaboration of three Australian demonstrators) decided that we would use it for our Stamp Camp on 1st June. If you are looking for masculine inspiration and love this suite, there is still time for you to join us. You can find all the details about the Stamp Camp here. I will leave the registration open for another few days. If you are in Australia, you probably won’t receive the kit in time for the event, but you will have the tutorial and can re-watch the presentations to make the cards at your leisure.

    Hop around and see what other masculine inspiration there is for us.
