Hues Of Happiness for World Ovarian Cancer Day

Thank you for joining us for the May Blogging Friends hop. This month we are showing our support for World Ovarian Cancer Day – which is on the 8th May. Ovarian cancer is the most lethal of the female cancers. This isn’t one type of cancer, but is the umbrella term for 30 different types of cancers. The colour for ovarian cancer is teal. Translating teal into Stampin’ Up! colours, I have used Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana.

I used the Happiness Abounds bundle to do the stamping and the dies in the bundle to cut out the flowers from the Hues Of Happiness DSP (one of the best features of this suite is that the dies cut out the flowers in the DSP. For the centre panel. I applied Coastal Cabana ink to the Fern 3D Embossing Folder. The Coastal Cabana foil sheet is no longer available, it was from the pack that was part of the Waves Of Inspiration pre-order.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope everyone has a fun and creative weekend. Be sure to hop around and see what everyone else has created.

Share It Sunday

Thank you for joining us for our Sunday blog hop (of course in Australia this goes live at 2:00am 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. This week I have been working on Masculine cards. I found the pelican in the Waves of Inspiration stamp set was the perfect go to.

I used the Bark 3D embossing folder (which has unfortunately sold out in Australia) to create the wavy looking background. I decided to stamp the water for some variation ofr my Facebook live this morning.

If you missed the live you can watch the replay below:

Be sure to hop around and see what everyone else has chosen to share with us.

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.

There are some products that will be retiring soon, so if you want them you need to order them ASAP to avoid disappointment. The star of the card is the Artistically Inked bundle. this set is carrying over, but in the new catalogue will no longer be available at the bundled price (less 10%). The other retiring items are the Pattern Party DSP and the 2021-2023 In Color jewels. The die that i used for the sentiment is one that probably never though it would be used like this – it is from the Horizon dies.

As always, I stamped the inside of the card too

Rainbow Butterflies

Thank you for joining us for another VLOG hop. The theme for this month is “Colours Of The Rainbow” This is open to interpretation, and you may find brightly coloured cards and possibly a rainbow or two along the way. I chose to use butterflies for my rainbow.

The surprise comes inside:

I used the Butterfly Brilliance bundle for the butterflies and the sentiment is from Beauty Of Friendship stamp set. If you want the Butterfly Brilliance bundle, you need to place your order before the end of the month as it won’t have the discounted bundle price in the new catalogue. Keep an eye out – the Bundle Bonus collaboration which will be ready at the end of next week is going to feature Butterfly brilliance.

Let’s Set Sail Z-Fold

If you couldn’t join me for my Facebook live on Sunday morning, this is the card that you missed. Once again, I couldn’t stay away from the New Horizons DSP. I’ll try use something else this week, but no promises! This is a Z-fold card and it open like this:

Although they aren’t shown together in the catalogue, New Horizons DSP is the perfect background to the Let’s Set Sail stamp set. You will need (want) the coordinating Sailboat Builder punch. Remember if you buy them as a bundle, you save 10%

I used a different sheet of the DSP for the live. Now I can’t decide which colour scheme I prefer!

Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop – Beauty Of The Earth

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is IIBH-header.jpg

Welcome to the March 2022 Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You may be starting at my blog or landed here from another one.
Each month there is a new Inspirational image and colour challenge, you can use either part to create your project. Either
INK – use the colour challenge to create a project unrelated to the image -{There will generally be 5 colours for the colour challenge you may use some or all colours plus Stampin’ Up! basics range (black, white, vanilla) or
INSPIRATION – use the image subject as inspiration for your project any way you can tie them together is fine. This is the beautiful image for this month:

I usually work with the colours, but this time I have used the picture inspiration too.

I used my Blending Brushes to apply Blushing Bride, Polished Pink and Merry Merlot ink to Basic White card stock. I then cut out 2 tree tops using the Beautiful Trees dies. The background is embossed with the Bark 3D embossing folder. I used the scraps of the blended paper to cut out some little birds for the inside of the card.

You are currently visiting Tracy Held at Trace Of Creativity in Australia. Please see the list below & hop through all of the other participants to see how they were inspired by the gorgeous picture.

Grassy Grove Fun Fold

Did you manage to watch my Facebook live yesterday? I demonstrated a fun fold card using the Grassy Grove bundle. I told you in my blog post on Thursday that I would be doing this in my live. You can see the original post here. I used a different sheet of the DSP when I did my live. This is the card that I made.

Do you love Facebook lives and are you looking for inspiration? If so this is for you!

Global SU Share fair is a collaboration of international demonstrators. It is an exclusive customer group and every second month we have an event where we each do a Facebook live. We also each use a different stamp set or bundle. There are usually 16 presenters, so you get 16 different projects and you can mix and match the designs and stamp sets to get even more! The April event will be a celebration of our 2 year anniversary. For me, this was a BIG plus that came out of the pandemic. If you are one of my customers who isn’t in the group, please let me know and I’ll send you an invitation. As a bonus for our birthday, invite a friend who loves crafting! Let me know their email address and I’ll send them an invitation too.

Here is the replay of my live:
